2016 Re-cap: Your Favorite Posts of the Year!

Happy New Year’s Eve!  I hope you have some fun plans for tonight whether you’re staying in or going out!  We plan on staying in this year, spending some time with the kids drinking sparkling grape juice and maybe a little moscato.


The end of the year brings with it a time for reflection, and I always find it interesting to reflect on my most popular posts from the year – the ones that YOU clicked on and read the most.  Sometimes I see patterns or trends in what you liked which allows me to better focus my blog content.  So, even if you are a quiet follower, please know that you’re still giving me feedback and that your support is immeasurable!

Without further ado, here are your favorite posts from 2016 ranked in reverse order from tenth to most popular:

#10 Wild Card Wednesday:  All The Bells and Whistles 

This soft textured look was a popular post not just on the blog but also on my various social media. 

#9 Shop Your Closet:  Plaid Shorts

This look was one of my favorites this year, and it was the most popular part of a trio of looks featuring these awesome plaid circle shorts from fellow petite plus Myrda J Designer Apparel.

#8 Getting Comfortable in PinkBlush Boutique + A $50 GiveawayEveryone loves a giveaway, and this post giving away a gift card to PinkBlush Boutique was a fan favorite.  This cardigan was seriously the perfect lounge piece!!

#7 Shop Your Closet:  Ruffles

I have been enjoying the resurgence of ruffles over the last few years, especially when this feminine detail is done in a sophisticated way that isn’t too girly.  I looooove how this Eloquii tunic worked as a dress on my petite frame!

#6 Spring Double Feature:  Citron Chartreuse

Bright colors are always a crowd favorite, so I wasn’t very surprised that this colorful citron and cobalt look was popular.

#5 Shop Your Closet:  The Blush Trench

This blush trench was a favorite piece of mine this year, and it proved to be popular on the blog as well.  The skirt and dress looks are some of my very favorite outfits from this past year, and I just love the color combos!

#4 Body Politics and the Not-So-Little Black Swimsuit

I didn’t get around to doing as many body image related posts as I had planned, but this post about being a plus size advocate was my favorite and yours.  It doesn’t hurt that I’m rocking a fantastic GabiFresh swimsuit on a beautiful beach either!  Wish I were there now!!!!

#3 Manic Monday:  The Relaxed Trench

This work look was my third most popular post of the year, and it’s also definitely one of my favorite looks.  This year, I really fell in love with the mix of black and olive/army green.  Gold accents keep the color combo from feeling too drab and heavy.

#2 Top Ten Posts of 2015 + What’s Coming in 2016

Apparently, you like these re-cap posts, as my similar post from last year had the second most hits of the year.  This look from 2015 continues to be a favorite of mine!

#1 Imitation Game:  The Blogger Midi

This skirt won the hearts of many bloggers this year, and apparently, it won your hearts too as my most popular post of 2016!  I styled this skirt several ways on the blog over the year, but this styling was the fan favorite. I guess chic really does happen!  😉

Just as dusters/soft trenches were a favorite go-to piece of mine this year, they took center stage on three of your favorite posts this year.

My “Shop Your Closet” feature was also popular, which encourages me to continue to offer this feature in 2017.  I think it’s helpful to see how key wardrobe pieces can be worn in different ways.

Hope you enjoyed this re-cap!  Did your favorite posts from last year make the cut?
