Style Recap of 2013

As 2013 exits, Classic.Raw.Beauty. will enter 2014 in mommy/style blogger fashion! Before we welcome 2014 with open arms, I thought it would be appropriate to flash back to my favorite looks of the year!

In the beginning of my 2013 style year, I was a senior in college and was obsessed with pairing thrifted pieces with contemporary pieces in my wardrobe. Being that this would be my last year as an undergrad, I wanted to amp up my style in a sophisticated, eclectic way! I think I accomplished that with pairing skirts with knee high socks and my favorite H&M booties and playing with high slits and ripped tights!

Near the end of my senior year I found out that I was 5 weeks pregnant so my style slowly began to change as my body morphed. My favorite fitted skirts, dresses and high waist pants had to be packed away. I faithfully wore cotton maxi skirts the whole summer to accommodate my growing baby bump! As my pregnancy progressed, my style took at a 180 and I wore things out of comfort instead of being cute or fashionable.

When I finally had my little munchkin on November 7th, 2013, 11 days later I bounced back and put my precious heeled booties back on! Though I am not where I want to be as a style blogger just yet, I am definitely enjoying being a mother first and foremost. But being that we are two days away from 2014, I am more than ready to accomplish my goals a blogger and mommy this year!

What are your 2014 aspirations?

You have such great style! I love how you incorporated maxis into your looks when dressing your baby bump. I relied on dresses for comfort during my pregnancy this year, though I never really wore them much before. Now they're among my staples!

Wish you the best in 2014, doll :)

Miss Dre, I relied heavily on maxi skirts and I loved them! I felt light, even though I was carrying a 7 pound baby lol! You are such a sweet follower!
