What I Wore in 2015

What I Wore in 2015 2015 was a good year for my personal style. The older I get, the more comfortable and versatile my wardrobe becomes. While it is fun trying out trends, my bank account just isn't up for a shopping trip every other weekend. I've also found that a simplified wardrobe of well-loved and quality pieces trumps those throw-away and seasonal fast fashion items. That's not to say that I don't like experimenting with my style; my experiments are just more closely aligned to my personal style. It's taken awhile to get my closet here and I'm so happy with how it's developed.

Usually I do a round-up with at least nine different outfits I loved throughout the year. Sometimes I just can't pick! This year I'm forcing to pick my top six looks from this year and I'm sharing why I loved them so much.

What I Wore in 2015

Wearing: White and Leather

This is one of my first looks on buttons and blossoms for 2015! In the cold winter months I find it hard to do more than throw on jeans and a sweater. I'm also not the flirty mini skirt type. This faux leather mini and white sweater combo pushed me out of my comfort zone while still using pieces directly from my closet. I may or may not being wearing this look in the new year as well...

Wearing: The Bubbly Bride

Just looking at this post makes me smile. This Boden dress was what I wore for my river cruise bridal shower. It was such a special day and I needed a special dress to go with it. I bought the dress at a sample sale really early on in the year and waited and waited for June to roll around. I didn't want a plain white dress so the little blue polka dots were just perfect and went along with my wedding colors.

Wearing: Summer Lady

Summer calls for shorts, t-shirts, and the occasional bikini. As a rule, I keep it casual in the summer. However, some rules are made to be broken and this dressy but casual summer outfit does a great job. I styled this look for a summer brunch in the city so it had to be comfortable for sitting outside in the August heat but still put together for a Sunday. I was nervous that I couldn't pull off the shorts with heels thing, but my cheap Forever 21 wedges have not disappointed me yet. Seriously, when can it be summer Sunday brunch again?

Wearing: Back to School 2015

This is the first time I shared my back to school outfit on the blog. Honestly with the beginning of the school year chaos, I'm lucky I remember to slide my feet into a pair of shoes before I'm out the door. So with that in mind, I wanted to keep it simple like this Old Navy shift with a touch of color and fun like my printed scarf and my lace-up sandals. In my fourth year of teaching I FINALLY have a back to school year outfit I can be proud of.

Wearing: Old and New Flare Jeans

I am overjoyed about the return of the flare jean to our closets. Though I will never give up the five or so pairs of skinny jeans tucked away in my closet, I am definitely having a moment with flare jeans. They are flattering on pretty much everybody and they are just a tad unexpected. Their only downfall is boot season but with this warm winter weather, I haven't put them away yet.

What I Wore in 2015

Wearing: The Fall Blues

I had to include this outfit since these photos were taken on the campus of my alma mater. It also combines a few of my favorite things: stripes, chambray, flares, and booties. I'm a fairly simple girl when it comes to my personal style but when you layer everything together, it can make you look put together and well-styled (at least I hope so!).

Do you have any favorite outfits or pieces of clothing from 2015?
