The Best of Sweet Parrish Place Style {2014}

In preparing to write this post, I went back to the very first style post I wrote, and I can’t believe it was in April of 2013!  Wow!  I started this journey when I fell in love with What I Wore Wednesdays on The Pleated Poppy.  I saw that hundreds of other bloggers were taking pictures of their every day outfits and linking them up to her weekly link party.  Well, I jumped right on that bandwagon as fast I could!  It was a no brainer for me.  You see, ever since I was a little girl, I have carefully planned out my daily outfits.  Let me tell you a little secret about myself.  For many years, I would write down exactly what I wore each day in my calendar so that I could make better use of my entire wardrobe, and so that I could look back on what things I mixed and matched together.  So it was a no brainer to me that taking daily pictures was so much better!  That may seem strange to some people, but this has always been a part of who I am, I don’t know why!  And I have loved every minute of documenting what I wear, even if not a single other person on the planet is interested, so I am gonna keep on keepin’ on!  And I know there are some other people who do like to read my weekly style post, because at times when I have taken a break from it, I have received emails asking where my style posts are, so that is very encouraging, and if you are one of those people who do enjoy it, thank you!
I thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of my favorite outfits of 2014, in light of the fact that I have been writing roundups of all of my 2014 projects.  I think my style journey is every bit as much of a project to me, so I hope you enjoy this look back at some of my favorites!  You can click the numbered link under each picture to go to the original post.

Almost one year ago, I wrote this post about my love of plaid skirts, and since then I have noticed a plaid skirt trend, so I feel like I was definitely onto something!  #pattingmyselfontheback

In the fall, Miss 18 Year Old and I had some fun styling the same black shift dress.  Hers, for a day at college, mine for a day at work.  don’t even start comparing who looks better in this dress, LOL!

I also wrote a post in early fall with my must have items for Fall.  I am happy to say I have acquired most of what is on my list! 

And that sums up my favorites of Sweet Parrish Place style for the year.  Participating in taking pictures of my style and blogging about it has really helped my style to evolve.  I can see the progression when I go back to some of my earlier posts.  I hope that you enjoy reading these posts half as much as I enjoy writing them!  And you can always check out my fashion page to see every post I have written. 

Today is my first day back at work from Christmas Break, so it is sure to be a rough one.  But, at least I will have a reason to get dressed again!  Have a great week!
