I’m having a really hard time accepting the fact that a new year is upon us. I just can’t even believe that 2014 has come to an end!
As a blogger, a full-time elementary teacher, and a mother of two, I’ve really tried to make the most of whatever I put my energy into. And for blogging, that sometimes means that I work really hard on putting together a great post, then take a few days to focus on other things.
Balance has been the key to this craziness. And having a great support system doesn’t hurt either!
As I looked back over the last 12 months of posts, I realized that I’m always trying to provide you with something that you can take away from Knocked Up Fabulous. Perhaps it was a bit of fashion advise, or sharing of a great product that I really enjoy…but I hope that you find this site as a reference for you – and maybe a little entertaining!
With that being said, here’s my favorite posts from 2014…
Cold weather always makes me so lazy. Lazy as in I don’t want to wear makeup or do anything with my hair. Luckily hats can always come to the rescue for those lazy or bad hair days. And 3 ways to wear a beanie can help with what you’re going to dress the rest of your body.
If you still haven’t scoped out a thrift store yet because you’re unsure of where to start looking, aim for the sweaters. Now’s the perfect time to find some great vintage knits. I’ve found some amazing ones, like this black and white zebra print from DVF.
I’ve been enjoying some of those trends that are revisiting us from the 90s. Give me a floral dress and a great distressed jean jacket any day and I’m a happy girl.
Whenever I’m not sure what to wear, I always find myself reaching for the colors black and white. I even love mixing different prints that are black and white. It’s the perfect way to create an easy and carefree – yet put together – look.
I’m always trying to get the most out of my closet. This means that I’m consistently thinking of other ways to wear things…like layering dresses and skirts, wearing a vest in another way, or using a nighty as a top.
I also love finding vintage clothing and altering it some how so that it looks current again. I’ve done this with vintage blouses. Simply remove the shoulder pads, hem the sleeves, and you have an amazing up-dated blouse! I’ve also reworked rompers and dresses by chopping off a few inches and adding a new hem. It’s really amazing what a few basic sewing skills can do to an old piece of clothing!!
This past year I’ve worked on improving my photography skills, too! Here’s a great piece on 3 super easy tips for taking great pictures.
Happy New Years to you, reader!! And cheers to a healthy and successful 2015!
