What I Wore 2017

It's that time of year again!
Time to take a look back at what I wore in 2017.

I have pulled together some of my favorite looks.
I am often inspired looking back at my outfits
remembering looks I forgotten.

This short dress was a new departure for me this year.
I paired it with some strappy heels
bold accessories
finished with a luscious half slip that peeked out purposely just a bit.

This is still one of my favorite outfits.
It's made up easily with an all white base
including these white cropped jeans
that I loved so much that I got three pair 
 wore them all spring and summer!

This fabulous wrap vest
adds a delightful dramatic exclamation to the basic pieces.

A travel outfit made up entirely of a white base, neutral accessories
finished with a dress used as a tunic.
I always try to travel with a color base to get the most wardrobe variation
with the fewest number of pieces.

This was a fun utilitarian outfit
perfectly polished  and cheery for running errands in comfort.

I did a whole collection of shell crowns last summer
I have more designs coming  for 2018 as well.

This is the outfit I wore to the fabulous Fierce 50 launch!
I wrote about the event here.

Mixed my leather fringe with shells
for a very successful monochrome outfit.
I think I might be bringing this outfit with me when I go to Austin in March!

One of my favorite dressing challenges I gave myself last year.
I did this whole outfit around this wonderful vintage sombrero!
I adore how it all came out!

I continued this year with my love of neutrals and creams.
And how fab are these leather boots!
I had completely forgotten I had them!
Time to pull out these beauties again this winter!
Do you ever forget about great pieces in your own closets?

My favorite outfit for flea market shopping!
The wicker cart and comfortable walking flats
my favorite two accessories for some serious shopping!

I had so much fun wearing this romper to the beach!
It  was something new for me
the perfect piece for a sunset beach walk.

this was this years Birthday Crown.

The Crown was the perfect finishing piece for my extra wide legged 
palazzo pants!

The same ball skirt as seen before
just paired with a wrap top
different accessories.

Took my beautiful bike out for a beach picnic
wearing my favorite cropped pants with a gingham dress
used as a tunic.

Some more easy to wear gingham.

Fabulous wrap vest
pushed nautical
with a stripped shirt and shoe
made for a great outfit for
sunset cocktails on a harbor cruise.

Another travel outfit
using a white base
with the addition of a leopard kimono.
I almost always throw in a couple of kimonos when traveling.
They work for so many situations.
They are definitely on my list for dressing travel tips.

These two knit pieces made for a cozy and comfortable 
date night.
The turban, chandelier earrings and clutch
gave it some glam polish.

Another fun running errands look.

This is what I wore on our anniversary in September.
Looking at this photo 
still makes my heart drop.

Some print on print action
for a trip to the desert.

One of my favorite photoshoots ever
was in Palm Springs this year.

Dressing for Palm Springs is always a favorite of mine!

I love how this outfit came together organiclly.
The perfect color pairing came together
when I saw them next to each other on my clothes rack.
The turquoise clutch that I found at a vintage shop in Palm Springs 
was a perfect finish.

I hope you have enjoyed this outfit retrospect.
Hopefully it has inspired you with some fun dressing ideas.
I know it has gotten me 
revved up for some more styling fun.

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
