2017 recap: Most popular posts

Continuing in the posts this week of highlighting favorites… now time for YOUR favorites this past year! (On Friday I’ll be posting my annual retrospective of the 2017 monthly favorites.)

Below are the most popular posts from 2017, the ones that got the most views all throughout last year. It means a lot to me that older posts are still going strong.

Let’s start from the top!

#1:  What to wear to a pajama party

It is still AMAZING to me that for three straight years, this post from December 2014 has consistently racked up views all year long. I sincerely had NO IDEA this post would be so popular when I first put it together.

#2:  OTI: Mixing It up

This casual work outfit post from 2012 (!) has once again landed in the top 2 for the second straight year! I think it’s so high because of the focus on this obi-style belt I made from two vintage ties — this photo is still one of my top-pinned pics on Pinterest. (Want to make your own obi-style belt? You can also see my DIY how-to post for how to make one of these obi-style belts from two ties, which I published this past year.)

#3:  Why I’m a style blogger, not a fashion blogger

This post also made the top 10 last year, but just barely, coming in at #9. This year, this 2016 made it to the top 3! It’s a straightforward post, with a simple and descriptive title.

#4:  Agatha Raisin style inspiration

This is the first time this post has made the top 10, and it’s a post I published over a year ago, in the fall of 2016. This remains one of my own personal favorite outfit posts, as well!

#5:  The smile behind my style: Review of Smile Brilliant whitening kit

Librarian for Life + Style | Reviewing the Smile Brilliant whitening kit

I wrote and published this review post a little over a year ago, and it’s nice to see a review post make the top 10!

#6:  About

Librarian for Life + Style | About

This is a page, not a specific post, but for the second year in a row, my “About” page has cracked the top 10 for the year! FYI, I also link my FAQs page off this About page.

#7:  Adventures in sewing: Shortening a halter neck strap

Librarian for Life + Style | How to shorten halter neck straps

This sewing post from summer 2015 didn’t get many views or comments at the time I published it, but its longevity is a nice surprise. It also made the top 10 last year!

#8:  5 fun facts + 5 outtakes to celebrate 5th blogiversary

Librarian for Life + Style | Outtake

Yay, an outtakes post made the top 10 for 2017! As I do outtakes-themed post at least 3 times a year — for New Year’s in January, for my blog anniversary in April, and for my birthday in August — I was once again pleased that an outtakes post made the cut.

#9:  Monthly budget adventures (March 2017)

Librarian for Life + Style | What I got (March 2017)

I was admittedly surprised to see this monthly budget post make the top 10! This was a good month, as I still regularly wear everything I got this month last year.

#10:  Monthly budget adventures (September 2017) + recent Target shopping experience

Last but not least, I was very pleased to see this monthly budget post make the top 10, as I went into detail into the highs and lows (there were a LOT of lows!) trying on the new “A New Day” clothing line at Target.

    That is so funny – I have to admit that I mostly clicked on the post because I wanted to see the pajama party options :)..so I can see why this is popular (not because I go to a lot of pajama parties but because you don’t see that many tried and true recommendations on pajama options!)
