2013 in outfits

At the movies, and on my birthday.

I liked you, 2013.  Yes, there were some sadness, but the year as a whole was very good.

And there were outfits.  These aren't necessarily my "best" outfits of the year...they're just the ones I took photos of.  (I don't take a lot of outfit photos, and the ones I take now end up on my Instagram.)  Looking at these photos, I realize that I wore very few items that were brand new to me.  (A quick and probably not totally accurate count: one skirt, two dresses, two pairs of shoes, and one pair of jeans.  Some socks and tights.)  Some of the things I'm wearing here I've had for several years; at least three of the dresses I've had for over a decade!  This pleases me.  Now I just need to learn to not fill up my closet with so many vintage things I never wear.  Yes, I think it will be time for a closet cleaning soon. 

At the UICA; on Record Store Day.

On the West Side; in downtown Grand Rapids.

At Honey Creek Inn; in Vienna.

In Cadillac; in the bathroom of the Amway Grand Hotel.



  1. You are so adorable. I want to come raid your closet in the WORST way! Also, I'd forgotten that you had purple hair! ahhh amazing!


    1. Thanks, Jess! :) Yes, I still have half a jar of Manic Panic that I have been meaning to use all year...maybe I should start the new year off with purple hair again.

  2. Love your style so Karen. I tend to be the same with my wardrobe and favour a selection which are worn over and over again. Not sure I'm brave enough for a clean out… yet! :)

  3. I can assure you that cleaning out the closet makes it much easier to get dressed. The problem is I look at all the space in mine and think of how I can re-fill it!

  4. Lots of goodness going on here! I especially adore the dress you are wearing in the first photo.
