After reminiscing last week on 2015 from a photographic aspect (check out my favorite SaraLily Photography moments from 2015 here!), I started reminiscing about my favorite style and recipe posts from the year. I figured, why not also do a round up of the year in two of my favorite things in this world: fashion and food!?
I know others did this weeks ago but meh, better late than never right?
When it came down to it, man, it was hard to choose but I managed to pick 1 post per month - besides a couple double favorite months. Then there was July. July was one of my favorite months on the blog - along with my Birthday month! - and it had so many good posts that I ended up with 3 from that month!
So without further ado, here is my favorite post from (nearly) every month in 2015!
~ February ~
Okay, so March has two features in it. I lied. A little. But look at that cake. I couldn't NOT include this heaven on a plate! I made this Triple Chocolate Raspberry Bundt Cake for my father's birthday. It was so decadent with both the chocolate chips in the chocolate cake and the raspberry flavoring in the fudgy frosting. It was a hit!
My second favorite July post is from my day at the Brimfield Show with Red, Massachusett's largest flea and antique fair that happens only 3 times a year. We went on SUCH a hot day. Man, it was HOT! It was the perfect time to wear and photograph my new romper (and FIRST romper!) from ModCloth. Though we were dripping sweat, we had a great day exploring the ginormous fair and checking out antiques and vintage clothes.
My third (and possibly top favorite from the year) was my joint Birthday date to see Billy Joel at Fenway Park with the best date in the world - my dad! I say "joint" Birthday because I got the tickets for his birthday and the concert took place right near my birthday! So we celebrated both our birthdays together with dinner and the show! It was so fun! I get my love for concerts from my dad. He has been to more concerts than he can count and has taught us all he knows! It was great to see Billy live finally - he is one of my favorites. I wore a LindyBop dress that totally screamed Uptown Girl to me and received a lot of compliments from folks at the concert. I was probably the only concert goer in a dress and petticoat but that is nothing new for me!
Another favorite from October was my post for my mother's birthday as well as her anniversary (they are only a few days apart), where I tried on her non-traditional wedding dress! It was so funny to try it on - it fit me almost perfectly! My dad got a good chuckle out of seeing me in it and I had fun posing in their back yard. I forgot to bring a petticoat along but in the end it was more fun wearing it as she did - just the dress, as it is!
