Sequins and Sea Breezes: A Look Back At 2017

A Look Back At 2017


Happy Friday and last few days of 2017 babes! I can't believe we're almost in 2018. I'm not one to make New Year's Resolutions but I do have a few goals for 2018, including making this the year of a better me. I'm definitely hoping for some big changes and good things in the year to come, all of which I hope I can share with you all shortly. Since I'm probably going to have a pretty low-key New Year's Eve, I thought it would be fun to look back on all of my favorite outfits from 2017 today. 


This outfit has been one of my most pinned looks on Pinterest and it still remains one of my favs. I wore this outfit on a warmer winter day and these moto leggings are still in constant rotation and are still in stock! They're super comfy and look so cute with almost anything. 


I had a lot of outfits I loved from February but if I had to choose just one, it'd be this comfy concert look I wore to a Breaking Benjamin concert. These leather leggings are actually super comfy and flattering and these Adidas are still my go-to shoe when I'm doing a ton of walking. 


I'm a sucker for stripes and ruffles so it's no surprise that this is my favorite look from March. I wore this out to dinner while I was at a convention at Disney and I got so many compliments. These wedges are also one of my favorite purchases in 2017. I loved them so much I actually bought the exact pair in black as well. 


Springing into spring in more stripes of course! Surprisingly, everything I have on in this look is still in stock and on major sale! I wear this top from work to cocktails out. It's so cute easily dressed up or down. I already can't wait for warmer weather so I can break it out again!


And into the hot and humid months we go! I wore this look late in May to an outdoor festival in Ft. Lauderdale by the water and it was the perfect outfit for spending the day outside. Unfortunately the all white version I'm wearing here is sold out but the striped version is still available and for only $20! You can't tell from this picture but the top is completely backless but still super supportive and the peplum is so sweet.

Technically I posted this outfit in July but this is the dress I wore for my birthday and it's still one of my favorite dresses. I was shocked when I saw it was still in stock and for 70% off so I actually just ordered it for this spring/summer in white and I can't wait to get it! Amuse Society is one of my favorite brands, everything is so well made and looks so cute on.


I wore this sweet ruffled, off the shoulder top for my birthday brunch and despite the fact I'm not a huge fan of pink, this is my favorite look from July. The flowiness made it perfect for stuffing my face with all the croissant French toast and mimosas I could handle and how can I not love the stripes and ruffles? 


I am so ashamed to say that my favorite look from August is actually one I completely forgot about. I bought this dress on sale (it's still available and on mega sale now!) and wore it a few times before I started craving fall outfits and it got pushed to the back of my closet. With it's sweet pattern and colors and of course pockets, I can't wait to break it out again this spring!


September marks my obsession with Free People jeans and trust me, that obsession has not gone away. As a short girl, I have a hard time finding jeans that fit me and these are almost perfect. Not only are they only slightly too long, they are super comfy (seriously, some of the most comfy jeans I own) and they're so easily dressed up or down. 


We had an abnormally warm October so I actually wore this outfit out for Sunday Funday in late October. It was a bit breezy so I brought my denim jacket to keep me warm when it got dark out but this silky, olive romper was so comfy and cute that I almost hated covering it with the jacket! 


And my obsession with my favorite Free People jeans continues with this outfit. By now I actually have these jeans in three colors and I'm not even sorry. I wore this outfit to my third and last time seeing Third Eye Blind in 2017 with my girl Kerri at House of Blues. We had such a blast and while our spot for the concert wasn't as great as it was the first time we saw them this year, we made the best of it and had such a great girl's day. 


Despite the fact I've barely posted this month, December was actually tough for me to pick a favorite look. Most of my looks for December came from my trip to Savannah so even though it's been a pretty warm winter for us, I had a lot of cute fall looks I loved. I ended up going with this look because it was the look I wore on my favorite day in Savannah. We wore this out for drinks on a rooftop followed by dinner by the river after a huge UCF conference championship win that secured our spot in the Peach Bowl next week. These boots are by far my favorite purchase of 2017 and if it doesn't get cold enough here for me to break these out again soon, I'll be going on a trip some place cooler or breaking them out with shorts, dresses and skirts just to get to wear them again. 

And there you have it! I hope you all enjoyed getting a little look back into the past with me. I'll be taking Monday and Tuesday off to celebrate 2018 and all the greatness (hopefully) it brings so I'll see you all next year!
