Favorite outfit of August 2018

Time for a look back at my outfits in August and vote for your favorite!

My most popular outfit this month, in terms of total views was #1, my red + black outfit with a circle statement bag. It was super hard to choose a personal fave this month, as I particularly enjoyed wearing #1, #4, #5, and #6. But ultimately, I have chosen #6, the colorful dashiki and sunhat that I wore to a local street fair. I kind of pushed my personal style boundaries a bit with that outfit (particularly the earrings!), and the photos came out so dynamic and colorful and fresh.

Favorite outfit of July 2018

Time for a look back at my outfits in July and vote for your favorite!

My most popular outfit this month, in terms of total views was #1, the orange floral dress I wore to attend a summer wedding. My personal favorite outfit was also #1, particularly the new-to-me vintage straw cloche hat I recently picked up. ♥ (BTW, my runner-up was outfit #4, the LBD with textured accessories.)

Six-month retrospective of monthly favorites in 2018

Each month, I do a monthly retrospective post with a reader poll to choose your own favorite outfit from the month. It’s already more than halfway through 2018, so I thought a six-month retrospective was in store. (I’ve also taken time to do a 6-month favorites reflection post in 2015, in 2016, and in 2017.)

The monthly retrospective collages include the:

  • most-viewed outfit of that month
  • reader poll winner
  • my personal fave
  • my husband’s personal fave

I’m starting with the most recent month, June, and going backwards to the start of the year.

June 2018 favorites:

Note:  This past month was the only time this past half-year that my personal fave matched with the poll winner!

May 2018 favorites:

And Sam chose the poll winner last month. 🙂 You can tell that May is one of the hardest months to dress for, weather-wise, up here in the PNW.

April 2018 favorites:

Three faves, two backdrops. This month’s faves all feature mixing prints and textures.

March 2018 favorites:

Sam felt he HAD to choose our formal tartan ensembles that we wore for an Oscars viewing party, and I do not blame him. It’s fun to dress up together! The main theme I notice from the three different faves from this month? Patterns! 😀

February 2018 favorites:

I was the odd one out this month! Still, it’s interesting to note how both outfits have the same combo of cardigan + a-line skirt + leggings. Tried-and-true outfit formula, y’all. 🙂

January 2018 favorites:

I only had four outfit photos in January — and three of them earned spots as different faves! Takeway? I have lots of winter coat options. 😉

Favorite outfit of June 2018

Time for a look back at my outfits in June and vote for your favorite!

My most popular outfit this month, in terms of total views was #5, my SIA-inspired casual outfit. My favorite was the month’s runner-up in views, #4, the outfit featuring four (!!!!) librarian-themed items of clothing. Classic, comfy, quirky. 😀

Favorite outfit of May 2018

Time for a look back at my outfits in May and vote for your favorite! One thing I noticed as I was putting this past month’s outfit collage together is how many patterns there are. There’s at least one pattern in every outfit this past month. 😉

My most popular outfit this month was #1, my gingham shirt + necktie combo, which barely squeaked past outfit #3. It was, once again, hard to choose this month… but I kept getting drawn back to what was arguably my simplest outfit this month, #3, my trench coat + red crossbody bag + black skinny jeans combo.
