{Best of 2014} Fashion + Style

Friday, woot! If you saw my InstaGram post yesterday, then you know our exciting news, and the reason behind the recent craziness around here. I hated keeping it a secret, but we needed to wait for the deal to go through. Between that, and another exciting opportunity coming down the pipe, there are going to be a lot of new projects in the next month, and I can’t wait to share them with you guys!

But for now, we continue rounding up top posts from 2014, and today is all about the Fashion. I continued {Outfit Inspiration} posts, like I’ve done since my first month of blogging, but this year I expanded with more Style and How-To posts. Here are the most viewed from the past year…

Most of my Friday Five posts included an outfit moodboard, featuring new items or combinations I had my eye on.

Travel has been a big part of this blog for years, and this year I expanded on how and what to pack for different occasions.

I think everything in your wardrobe should play double and triple duty, and mix-and-match for multiple looks, and I showed you how I do just that with some basic dresses.

And there’s no reason to invest in a bunch of new pieces with each change of season, so I shared my formula for transitioning my existing wardrobe for cooler months.
Nor do you need to pay high-dollar for trends…there’s almost always a look-for-less!

And after years of promising a tutorial, I finally shared how I create messy curls that last.
Creating new and different looks, using items already in my closet, is one of my passions, so my favorite this year was the new series, Sugarplum Style. About once a month I share my recent everyday outfits, in hopes of inspiring you to create new combinations of your own.

Whew, that was a doozy of a round-up! Obviously I’m no style guru or trendsetter, but hopefully you find some inspiration here. Do you enjoy reading the style posts as much as I love creating them?! Happy weekend, lovebugs…we are headed to a friend’s lake house for some down time, and to let our agent work her magic on our house…so send good mojo!

  7. Somehow I missed the post with your mom in it when you originally published it. She is adorable! And you are wrong wrong wrong about not being a style guru. You have more style than anyone I know. Please keep doing lots of fashion posts. And spill a few more beans about the new casa…

    Cassie I wanted to know, how often do you purge your closet? And can we have a peak inside of it for 2015? I have tons of clothes and I do give away some. I typically buy pieces that I love that will hold up forever. So are there any tips that you can share with me for giving away more. And the if you haven't worn it in over a year doesn't work for me lol. Sometimes I'm not feeling a piece this year or the next, but the third year, I'm in love. Is that weird or what? Anywho, thanks for the tips.
