2013 Favorite Moments

How To Wear A Tunic Sweater
By Jess
29 Dec 2013
2013 was quite a year. It certainly had its highs, and some lows, but as I look back on the past 12 months I am humbled and grateful for the experiences I’ve had, new friendships I’ve gained and lessons I’ve learned along the way. I can’t thank all of you enough for your love, support, encouragement and readership since I started this blog only 10 months ago (it feels like so much longer than that!). The end of the year always makes me reminisce so I thought I’d share some of my favorite moments from 2013. Thank you for joining me on this journey, cheers to new beginnings in 2014!
I’ve been shopping at TJ’s FOREVER and when I was picked as the TJ Maxx Maxxinista it was literally a dream come true. 
Prosecco and Plaid TJ Maxx Maxxinista

It was a toss up but ultimately these burgundy booties sealed the deal for me. This black and blue ensemble and this leather skirt are runners up.

#3: Favorite Winter Look

This is my go to winter coat. It’s crazy warm but still cute, and I am obsessed with this lip color. You can get it here

Prosecco and Plaid Tartan Scarf and Lambswool Coat

The crown braid was the “it” hairdo this year and I hope it’s here to stay because I absolutely love it. So bohemian, feminine and pretty it is the perfect undone updo. I rocked it a few times this year, for me, the crown braid is here to stay.

The headscarf was definitely my favorite accessory of the year. Hats come in a close second (particularly this one), but there’s something about a scarf that’s so feminine. Some of my favorite looks are here, here and here.

This was such a fun contest hosted by Lucky (and thank you so much to everyone that voted). I was so flattered to be picked as the winner and the prize, the ultimate spa day with my Mom, was the icing on the cake.

#7: Words of Wisdom

I always love a good quote. These were some of my favorites.

#8: Lucky Fabb

This blog has introduced me to a whole new world, and it’s pretty awesome. Going to Lucky Fabb and Simply Stylist were two unforgettable experiences that left me inspired and thankful. Read about it here and here.

#9: America’s Cup

I’ll be the first to admit I am not a sailor,  nor do I know anything about it, but when my cousin sailed in the America’s Cup on Oracle Team USA I was glued to the TV every afternoon for two weeks. Rome and his team staged arguably the best comeback in sports history, and then we got to share a moment with the Cup back home. Sailing will never be the same!
