One of my main goals for this year was to networking with other bloggers and industry professionals. The highlight was joining PHLbloggers! I've met so many local bloggers (if you're in the Philly area, join us!!) through educational and social events and I'm currently helping to plan the 2107 Blog Connect Conference.
I was able to feature quite a few blog posts through the generous support of brands around the country. The year kicked off with a post on Enclothe Boutique, and I have since featured numerous pieces of clothing from the company. Some of my favorite posts have been the Enclothe Perfect Picks where Gabrielle, the owner of Enclothe Boutique, and I share how we would style our favorite pieces! We hope to have those back next year, so stay tuned!
I had been wanting to redo the look of my blog for a while, and this summer happened to be the perfect time to do it. I collaborated with my talented friend Chels of Cricket Lane Studio and she came up with the perfect logo! In January, I hope to have my business cards and other marketing materials!
And now, a roundup of my favorite posts...
This was one of my first pieces from Enclothe Boutique! See the full post here.
I love this photo so much I've been using it as a headshot (getting a professional headshot is on the list for 2017!) I loved the print mixing with this Lilly Pulitzer dress and chambray, but I think chambray matches everything! See the full post here.
It's no secret I love prints! This Enclothe Boutique cutie has a gorgeous southwestern print and a fun sleeve, which I couldn't resist! See the full post here.
I'm a sucker for any critter print, so I had to have this parrot print dress. How cute is this?! Again, I told you chambray matches everything, and is perfect all year. See the full post here.
here, including the cute hem.
I collaborated with Glossybox and shared a reveal of the May box. Glossybox is one of my favorite beauty subscriptions out there. Check out the review here.
Here is another of my all time favorite outfits. I was never much of a tucking in my shirt kind of gal until this post. But these black skinnies made it so easy to style that way; they really are a staple for every closet. See the post here.
I had some fun with this shoot because...pineapples! See the full post here.
August of course is one of the two months Lilly Pulitzer hosts an online sale. I shared some sale tips along with this pretty dress! See more here, just in time for the January sale.
In September, I collaborated with fellow blogger Julia (of Philly with a Fjallraven) to take photos for this blog post. This image is one of my favorites!
In October I collaborated with Tobi to share this fun blog post. It featured my first bomber jacket, which are amazingly comfortable by the way.
This LBD is one of my favorite dresses, and paired with OTK boots, is the perfect outfit for fall/winter. See more of this post here.
This is my latest skincare review featuring Erno Laszlo, and I had to include it because of the amazing results I've experienced since I posted about it. It's a lifesaver and I will definitely be getting this duo again. See why I love it here.
Thanks for sticking with me through this long recap. I had so much fun going back through my posts and seeing how the blog has evolved! For 2017, my #1 goal is to get professional photographs. I'm hoping to also get a camera to play around with. Here's to a new year of blogging...
