2015 recap: Most popular posts

Continuing in the posts this week of highlighting favorites… now I’m focusing on YOUR favorites this past year! (And one final chance to vote for your favorite outfit of mine from December — tomorrow I’ll be posting my annual retrospective of the 2015 monthly favorites.)

Below are the most popular posts from 2015, the ones that got the most views all throughout last year. As I publish five posts a week, and I am going on 3+ years of blogging, I have a LOT of archives, so it means a lot to me that older posts are still among my most popular posts.

Let’s start from the top!

#1: Spreading the blog love: 9 style bloggers I love and why I love them

Spreading the blog love: 9 style bloggers I love and why I love them

This was far and away my most popular post this past year, and that warms my heart, as this post — about the different reasons for 9 of my favorite style bloggers — was all about spreading the blog love.

#2: What to wear to a pajama party

The fact that this post, published in December 2013, has consistently racked up views all year long kind of cracks me up. I had NO IDEA this post would be so popular when I put it together. I even recently updated the shopping links to highlight new items! It’s a “what to wear” kind of post, but with a fun, unexpected spin! 😀

#3:  Keeping it Kewl: Bandage dress review + reader discount code

This post, published in November 2014, surprised me a little by placing in the top 3 for 2015. Who knew my bandage dress review would prove so popular? (My “winterizing a bandage dress” post also made the top 20!) I think it’s also because this post was featured on The Kewl Shop website.

#4: “What’s up, classy lady?”

This post, published in early January 2014, is STILL going strong two years later! It took the #1 most popular spot of 2014 and is now #4 for 2015! I think it’s the combination of the title — inspired by what Sam said when he saw me in this outfit — and a classic work combination that many of us working women can recreate from items in our own closets.

#5:  Galleries 2015

This isn’t technically a post — rather, it’s a page — but I still wanted to include it on this list. It makes me feel good that my Galleries section consistently draws views, as it’s an all-in-a-glance archive of all my outfits and an easy way to get to know my style. (By the way, I also added a Galleries 2012 page and expanded my Galleries 2013 page this past summer, in order to expand the gallery archives.)

#6:  What I wore for New Year’s Eve 2014

A rare dressy outfit for the top 10! 🙂 Although its views spiked last January, as to be expected, it consistently drew in additional views throughout the year.

#7:  Casual statements + Greg Michaels handbag review

Another early January 2015 post, in which I reviewed a new tote bag, courtesy of Greg Michaels — my first really high-quality handbag. I’ve continued to use this leather handbag throughout this past year.

#8:  Black pencil skirt

Another post from almost two years ago, February 2014, that made this year’s top 10. (It was my third most popular post last year.) A black pencil skirt is a classic for a reason!

#9:  Tunic + leggings

Librarian for Life + Style | Tunic + leggings

And another favorite outfit of mine, my black floral tunic + berry leggings combo! Even though this post was originally published in June 2014, it didn’t make the top 10 in 2014… interesting that its views have actually increased in 2015!

#10:   Red and black statement tunic

This one surprised me by making it into the top 10! I’ve noticed a trend of simple blog post titles (and outfits) garnering the most views… something to keep in mind as we begin 2016! 🙂
