Every year I try to look back and reflect. The other day I did a hike at Runyon Canyon and just sat on top of a rock scrolling through my Instagram. It jogged my memory of events that happened this year and brought a smile to my face. So I just wanted to round up some of my faves of 2015. I hope you enjoy taking this trip down memory lane with me!
#1 Fave Outfit
This was a tough one. I had so much fun wearing so many outfits this year. But I chose this one because it combined so many of my favorite fashion elements of 2015: I became obsessed with monochromatic looks, I couldn’t stop wearing white, I developed an infatuation with capes, I used flare pants to fake being taller and I couldn’t stop wearing the crop top trend.
#2 Fave Red Carpet Moment
One of the most exciting projects I did this year was working with Herbal Essences for Grammys. I filmed a commercial for E!, had a blast at the award show and was even on Fashion Police. But the most surreal moment? Getting to do the Glam 360 on the Grammys red carpet!
#3 Fave New Column
I’ve had so much fun introducing new content on the blog this year. One of my favorite columns is Inspired By, where I take elements of celebrity style and show how you can interpret the look for less on your own. This was my fave outfit this year. Do you remember which celebrity it was inspired by?
#4 Fave Press
Hands down getting featured three times in the September issue of People StyleWatch was the coolest thing ever.
#5 Fave Instagram Moment
During fashion week, I was lucky enough to sit across from Sarah Jessica Parker at the Tracy Reese show. It was too crazy to get to meet her but she commented on my photo that she hopes to meet one day! I almost died.
#6 Fave Friendship Moment
I had so many wedding this years. But my favorite moment was getting to be maid of honor at my best friend Michelle’s wedding. I don’t have any brother or sisters so she’s always been like a sister to me so it was such a special day. I can’t wait to see the photos!
#6 Fave Wedding Guest Dress
Like I said, I had so many weddings this year. I loved this lace dress so much I actually wore it to two over the summer!
#8 Fave Event
Since I began my career in entertaiment, I’ve been fortunate enough to attend many celebrity events. The American Country Music Awards is now one of my all-time faves. I was so excited when Kohl’s asked me to be their red carpet correspondent and had such a blast chatting with Miranda Lambert, Reese Witherspoon and Luke Bryan on the red carpet. Country starts are the sweetest!
#9 Fave City
This year, I was essentially bi-coastal. I was in New York at least once a month. It has basically become my second home. I feel so lucky that I get to visit so often because some of my best friends live in the city. I hope my work brings me back just as much next year!
#10 Fave Summer Trend
I could not get enough of my maxi dresses over the summer. I have a feeling this will be a repeat occurrence in 2016!
#11 Fave Fall Trend
I could twirl in fringe all day every day.
#12 Fave Winter Trend
I absolutely love pastels for winter. And thanks to Pantone, rose quartz and serenity will be huge into next year.
#13 Fave Spring Trend
I’ve always been a huge fan of mixed prints. This year it was all about stripes for me, which go oh so great with florals!
#14 Fave Ways You Wore It
I loved seeing how all of you interpreted the trends from the A-Z Trend Guide. Everyone did such a great job! Some of my faves were @panot711 in T is for Turtlenecks, @sherristyle1 in F is for Fringe, @sassyteacherchic and her adorable daughter in E is for Essential White Shirt, @monicsutter in G is for Gray, @shereelorraine in L is for Leather, @clauudddd in Y is for Yesteryear and @glam_karen in H is for Head-to-Toe White.
#15 Fave Insta- Quote
This year I started an album on my phone called “Quotes,” Any time I saw something inspirational on Instagram I’d screengrab it. Sometimes I would just read it over and over to myself. Other times I would share it on my page. This one sums up my New Year’s resolution: start each day with a grateful heart. I had some major ups and downs this year but overall I’m so thankful for everything in my life. So my goal is to focus on the positive in the New Year. And all of you are an amazing positive in my life.
Thank you again for an amazing 2015 and I can’t wait for an even more fab 2016!
