Well, 2014 certainly was a busy year. We moved out of our rental an into my parents’ basement, then out of my parents’ basement to house-sit for someone; I had a baby and turned twenty-six (which has always seemed the tipping point into “real” adulthood for me); I quit my job, opened an Etsy shop, and began photographing more and more people; my grandmother, a great woman with whom I shared a birthday, passed away at the age of 91; my husband and I made a short film and won a 72 hour filmmaking competition; I dyed my hair red… many, many things. It’s been a wonderful year, and I am so thankful for everything that has happened! And through it all, my style has been evolving and shaping as well, into something that is much more “myself.”
So today, because I’ve never done it before, I want to take a look back at my favorite outfits of the year.

And that’s it! I feel as though my style has gone through a lot and evolved, yet still held the same elements — ladylike, a little quirky, and very twirly-skirted. Were you surprised to see three outfits with jeans in the mix? I was!
