2015 recap: Favorite photos

For the rest of this week, I will be highlighting favorites from 2015 in a “2015 recap” mini-series! (And if you haven’t already, please take a minute to vote for your favorite outfit of mine from December.)

Last year, I highlighted my favorite photos from 2014. I liked the exercise so much that I wanted to do it again for my posts from 2015. Note that my favorite pics are not necessarily of my favorite posts or of my favorite outfits.

I’ve also linked the original blog post below each pic, so you can enjoy exploring.

Librarian for Life + Style | SIA: Cafe cloche

SIA:  Cafe Cloche:  This photo and outfit was inspired by Edward Hopper’s 1927 “Automat” painting. The photo came out a little grainy, because of the early morning dimness, but it ended up contributing to the period feeling. This is one of my favorite outfits from this past year, as well as one of my favorite photos.

Librarian for Life + Style | Dressing up as Rosie the Riveter

Dressing up as ‘Rosie the Riveter’:  I loved everything about dressing up as the iconic “Rosie the Riveter” for this year’s Halloween costume — and that my husband went the extra mile and recreated the iconic poster for me. Still makes me smile! (And also makes me want to wear red lipstick, like all.the.time.)

Librarian for Life + Style | Getting fancy in a floral maxidress

Getting fancy in a floral maxidress:  I felt like a modern-day Cinderella in this floaty floral maxidress from The Kewl Shop. I also remixed this maxidress for a more casual look, but I loved everything about this utterly feminine and fancy look. No wonder I chose this as my favorite for March!

Librarian for Life + Style | The sparkly girl selfie

The sparkly girl:  From one fancy outfit to another… I took this selfie on the spur-of-the-moment — and it ended up one of my favorite pics! (This was also my favorite outfit for October.)

Librarian for Life + Style | SIJ: Style Imitating Jen

SIJ: Style Imitating Jen:  I was so touched when a longtime reader, Katie, was inspired by me for an outfit, which she wore to her son’s first birthday party. Such a lovely compliment!

Librarian for Life + Style | Librarian style profile: Amy

Librarian style profile: Amy P.:  A librarian friend, Amy, stayed with me in April for a librarian conference, and I played her photographer for a “librarian style profile” post. I love this photo as it so perfectly captures Amy’s joy and beautiful smile!

Librarian for Life + Style | What we wore to an afternoon wedding

What I wore to an afternoon wedding:  This photo is from an afternoon wedding of two friends we attended in early fall. I just love our expressions in this pic — and Sam’s kilt, of course!

Librarian for Life + Style | Grid prints + kitty cats

Grid prints + kitty cats:  I always end up with a few photos during the year featuring neighborhood cats, and I loved the composition of this shot:  the stairs, Savannah’s adorably round kitty face, and my joy in getting to pet the kitty.

Librarian for Life + Style | Behind the scenes at an NEA photo shoot

Behind the scenes at an NEA photo shoot:  From what was a very special experience doing a photo shoot for the National Education Association, I’m so thankful for this behind-the-scenes shot that the NEA rep sent me.

Librarian for Life + Style | Texas and Oregon vacation pics

Texas and Oregon vacation pics:  And last, but not least, a photo collage featuring me and my beloved mom. She visited Portland this past summer, and we wore our “Home” products (her bag and my tee) while on a special behind-the-scenes tour at the Oregon State Library. My mom is a big fan and regular reader of this style blog, so it was super fun posing for pics with her!

    These are all great pictures, and I love the idea of choosing your favorite pictures for the year. I think it would be hard to narrow down! I love the one of you as Rosie the riveter, so fun! I was her a couple of years ago too 🙂

      Thanks! I was inspired by another blogger for the idea of choosing favorite pics. And yay for Rosie the Riveter! It would be super fun to have a lot of friends or work colleagues all dress up as Rosie the Riveter. That would be a strong statement! 😉
