Two Teens And Their Mama: Fashion Year In Review

Fashion Year In Review


Today I had planned to do a recap of the Winter Style Me Challenge and show the last week of outfits.  However, I don't have a single picture of said outfits.  I'm not sure what I wore, but I definitely didn't document anything.

Instead, I decided to share some of the ways I was challenged in 2014.  I have always loved fashion, which is why I studied it in college.  I used to get dressed in real clothes everyday, but by early this year I had fallen into a bad habit of wearing yoga pants or jeans and sweatshirts all the time.

One of my reasons for starting this blog was to force myself to get out of the sweats and back into stylish clothes.  With the help of Alison and inspiration from some of my new blogging friends, I stepped outside my comfort zone and tried some new things - leopard print, white jeans, dresses with sneakers, ponchos, and leggings.





My husband noticed, my boys said I looked pretty, and I felt much more confident actually wearing the clothes that had been hanging in my closet.

Here's to a stylish 2014, with more to come in the new year.  I'll be linking up throughout 2015 with the Style Me Bloggers, and we have some really fun, interesting posts scheduled.  I hope you'll join us!

  3. Looking good Lana! I love these posts of yours. I have learned some things, and while I am probably still too much in the rut of jeans and sweatshirts, your voice now niggles at my conscious as I pull them on. Maybe there is hope for me in 2015! :)

    1. I'm so happy you enjoy them, and I laughed when you said you hear my voice in your head. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing :)!
