First Pair of Culottes

While scouring the racks of clearance clothing in the local TJ Maxx, I noticed these khaki pair of culottes hanging delicately between a lace crop top and purple printed blouse. They felt out of place, like I needed to “rescue” them. A little apprehensive at first, I have big calves that sometimes don’t suit cropped pants. Then, I noticed the price tag read only $15. I really couldn’t pass them up.

You might be wondering…

It’s been a year. An entire year. My life had many highs and quite a few lows, but overall 2016 was great to me. If you have been following my Instagram account (@outfitaday365) you’ve seen some of my awesome outfits throughout the year.

So, to quickly fill everyone in on all amazing things that have been happening {and causing my extended absence from blogging}, I have compiled a list of outfits. Below are my “Top 15” favorites from 2016.

Embrace the cape!

With the winter chill arriving in Minnesota quicker than I hoped, I needed a new way to stay warm and fashionable. I love my down feather Calvin Klein coat, however, it becomes quite monotonous when worn every single day. I wanted to switch it up occasionally- try a new trend other than a long black coat.

I have already seen several women on the street flaunting their flowing capes (or as some might call a poncho). Could this new fad be the piece of clothing to break up my chilly day boredom?

Even Mary Poppins gets in the Halloween spirit

Halloween arrives every year on the same day, October 31st. You’d think that I would finally be prepared for the day- costume already chosen, prepped, and ready.

Once again the night before I am going back and forth between 20 costumes trying to determine which would be the cutest, cheapest, and most original. Scouring through my closet for viable Halloween clothing, I discovered I had several key pieces for one simple costume.

Mary Poppins!

More clothes = more exercise?

I worked hard this summer- spent long hours at the office, ate a [strict] healthy diet, and exercised on occasion. Mostly it was my energetic lifestyle and the long summer hours that kept me in check.

Now the days have shortened, the hours in the office have decreased (only slightly), and I’m craving comfort food as the weather chills. I have a wedding lurking in the near future that I need to stay toned and healthy for. Plus, I can’t afford to pay for dress alterations, as it fit perfectly several weeks ago.

What is a girl to do? Buy more athletic clothes of course!

Pleather leggings- yes, you can wear them!

Typically I choose my outfit the night before, a routine I fell into during my first years of college to save a couple extra minutes of sleep the next morning. However, after an exciting, late night the last thing I wanted to do was search through my clothes while dreaming of my pillow.

Riffling through my closet early the next morning, I wasn’t clicking with any of my clothes. I felt extra edgy, what could I wear to represent that?
