today, i’m traveling down memory lane. at the end of the year, it’s next to impossible not to take a moment and reflect on the previous twelve months. and we’ll be sharing a fun series in the next week or two as we wrap up another year and another decade. can you believe it, ladies? in a few short weeks, 2020 will be knocking on our door. so we thought it would be fun to share the top outfits of the decade starting with 2015 all the way through 2019. it’s been a fun project flipping through old blog photos! sometimes, i slap my forehead and wonder what the heck i was thinking. but, hey, it’s fashion. it’s totally okay to make a mistake. that’s how we grow and continue to streamline our style. but i couldn’t resist sharing this photo set that was taken at the inception of the blog. if you can believe it, the photos remain a Pinterest favorite. not long ago, i shared this pic on Instagram, and it was a hit over there too. do you know why this outfit has staying power? it’s classic through and through.
there’s no denying that a simple ootd is sometimes the best ootd (outfit of the day). what’s better than a chunky turtleneck and blue jeans? especially this time of year. and you can amp up your style game by slipping a plaid flannel shirt underneath.
i know, i know, some of us loathe distressed jeans, and some of us love them. personally, i think they add FUN to an outfit. and we all need a playful side of our wardrobe. no matter what age. but whatever your opinion is of distressed jeans, we know that different styles of denim come and go. but we also know blue jeans are here to stay. amen! they’re a wardrobe staple. and they were born and bred here in the USA, thanks to Levi Strauss.
so what are the key components of a classic outfit? wardrobe staples that have staying power like a chunky turtleneck similar here, here and here . for an oversized look, i’ll jump up one size. plaid shirts similar here, here and here are a perennial fall/winter favorite year after year. and cap toe flats similar here, here, and here are a classic staple thanks to the infamous Coco Chanel.
all right, ladies, another sunday is in the books. there are only two more left in 2019. i hope you’re all enjoying these precious last days of the decade. let’s make every minute count.
