Another year, another best dressed list. These are the top 10 outfit posts that received the most traffic in 2016 (this one in particular got over 10K+ visits which still blows my mind). Although I posted a lot less outfits this year (17 less than 2015 to be exact), I think I like this batch a lot more. Quality, not quantity, is what’s important right? I didn’t donate half my wardrobe like I did last year when I went through my must get rid of everything!! phase, but I also didn’t shop much for clothes either. The first half of the year was spent putting my money toward useful things I would need for my Eurotrip where I would not be taking much clothing, and after my trip I was unemployed for so long that I didn’t have money to shop. I relied on my partnerships with brands to fulfill my desire for new clothes, but for the most part, I just worked with what I already had. I think it worked out for the best. Which look is your favorite? Mine would have to be the the 3rd one down in the 2nd column because I still wear that outfit all the time.
Another sign that these outfits overshadow what I wore in 2015 is that my readership doubled this year, and I’m guessing a lot of it had to do with me stepping up my content + taking more risks. I tried new trends on the blog including caps, fanny packs, pleather pants, chokers, etc., and I stopped being too shy to take photos outside of my neighborhood; I went everywhere around town and didn’t mind that people were looking. To every friend (and mom) who put up with me asking them to take my photos in public, you da real MVP.
