Another year is almost over. It seems like a good time to reflect and look at the year that has been. Today I offer you my 10 favorite outfits of this year.

1. The D. Exterior silk dress


I have worn this on so many occasions, but I still feel fabulous each time I wear it. Unfortunately, I still don’t have a good outdoor photograph with this dress!

2. Striped skirt, white top & hat

I love the dandy chic vibe of this outfit while still being very feminine

3. Golden silk top & pants


This outfit feels timeless and ageless chic

4. Silk skirt with white blouse and colorful necklace and shoes


Simple & chic with an accent on the accessories and shoes.

5. Grey top & white leggings


I’m surprisingly fond of this outfit. It’s very casual, a bit dandy and a bit chic. The perfect travel outfit in hot weather.

6. Red top with white capris


My red top remains a favorite. This is my go-to outfit when I don’t feel like mixing and want to wear that I know I will feel good in.

7. Red skirt and camel top


I love the mix of casual and chic in this outfit. The red skirt is a favorite and I love how it combines with camel and yellow. The shoes and animal print belt are the perfect final touch.

8. Striped blazer and blue pants


This outfit is funky and fresh. It’s a fun play of different colors and textures

9. Colorful Cos dress

I like this outfit better from the back than in front as you can see the extra color purple. I think it’s a unique color combination and it’s a perfect dress for casual outings.

10. White trousers & royal blue top

black and white accessories

Simple & chic always looks great and this simple pairing is no exception.

11. Purple dress

I have smuggled one other outfit into this list. Although this dress is not a favorite, these are among the nicest What I Wore pictures on the blog this year. I have such fond memories of this day and this dress on that day, that it still has a special place in my heart. Even though I doubt I will ever wear this dress again, they say that photography is more important than the actual outfit and these photos prove that.

I’m going to aim to step up my game when it comes to photography, so watch this space for more outfits in the new year!

Up to you now. Which of my outfits this year is your favorite?
