Fourteen Favorites

Three Perfect Pieces
1. Polka dots, spectators, and vintage jewelry - three of my favorite things! (get the details in my original post)
It's hard to believe that 2014 is coming to a close. The year seems to have passed in the blink of an eye (or the change of an outfit, as the case may be). My simple blog posts are a chronicle of personal style and shopping tips, but they've also become a journal of sorts, and looking back over this year's entries reminded me again of the many opportunities and experiences I have to be thankful for. It also reminded me of some outfits I can't wait to wear again, so I thought I'd recap 14 of my favorite looks from 2014. 
Stripes of All Types
2. The coral pants have been in my closet for years, but a $7 scarf from Wal-Mart made them feel brand new. (original post)

3. Mustard yellow awning stripes have turned out to be more versatile than I anticipated, and I've paired this skirt with both green and navy. (original post)

4. The last thing I expected to buy while shopping in South of France was overalls, but this white cropped pair makes me feel like a French painter, and they're super comfy. (original post)
 The Sleek Silhouette
5. I tend to gravitate toward dresses with a fit 'n flare cut, so I was surprised to find that three of my favorite purchases this year featured narrower cuts below the waist. This navy blue Black Halo dress from Profyle Boutique feels like it was made just for me. (original post)

6. My friend Murph Damron spotted this graphic print sheath at The Secret Ingredient and knew I'd love the "Jody orange" color. I was skeptical of the cut when I first saw it, but the colorblocked sides are so flattering. (original post)

7. It was the chess piece print that made me fall for this vintage 1970s dress. I think if it were in stores today, it would sell like crazy. (original post)
A Plaid for All Seasons
8. Stewart tartan in a 1950s style cut to celebrate the holidays. This is one of the most comfortable dresses I own. (original post)

9. Pink and orange is such a happy color combination for summer, and the lightweight fabric of this sundress made it perfect for the golf course, too. (original post)

10. Chocolate plaid paired with dark cherry suede boots and a turtleneck was cozy chic, and also brought back warm memories of my Grandpa Coy. (original post)
Formal Affairs
11. I LOVE to get dressed up, and I'm fortunate to get several opportunities to do so. But, I'm not a fan of spending a lot of money on a dress that will only be worn once or twice. This Temperley London dress retails for more than $2000, which I'd never pay, but Rent the Runway made it a reality for me. (original post)

12. I love this old Hollywood style lace dress more than any other gown in my closet. I've worn it twice, and I already want to wear it again. (original post)

13. The "Jody orange" paisley print on this dress is amazing, and it was perfect for Zoobilation 2014's "Rock Your Orange" theme. (original post)
It's a Wonderful Life
14. This outfit came together at the last minute on Christmas Eve, but it made me feel like I stepped out of a classic holiday movie. (original post)

Happy New Year, and remember, Fashion is what you buy; style is what you do with it!
