2010 Wrap up!

Mustard Cords (My new favorite pants!)
Green Coat that has no pockets, what a horrible thing to forget.
Seersucker in the freezing cold?
Winter florals and the start of a style challenge.

Neon snake print and ruffles -the outfit everyone voted for!
V-day cuteness.
Out playing in the snow!
Freezing on my little sis's Birthday.

A day that actually felt like spring, so more florals were in order
In my sailor suit to go and see the play "On the Town"
The start of a capsule wardrobe challenge
An outfit styled for me by Ali of The Drawing Mannequin

A trip to Italy begins -- Rome on my Birthday!
And I pretty much live in my purple scarf...
I find a Desigual skirt that I have to add to my closet,
And when I find out I'm not going to be able to leave because of the volcano, I buy a new dress (and bag and sandals and earrings)!

Wearing a pair of shorts I made and never ever wore - I finally got over my shorts aversion.
A rushed morning produces a cute outfit.
My J.Crew steal making it's debut on Mother's Day.
My new bag and scarf from Italy refresh an old dress.

I pulled out my boots for some summer boot action.
Embraced horizontal stripes more than ever before.
Remixed some old favorites.
Put together a look inspired by Lucky Magazine (one of many).

For lack of a white top, I wore pjs out.
Lots of white layers always feel like summer.
Got the white top, and a fun pair of shorts that look like a skirt!
Some bright poppies make for a wonderful summer dress.

Ahhh summer, days spent at the beach...
I got my amazing fabulous Jeffery Campbell Splendid sandals after stalking Nordstroms website for a week.
I made a new skirt.
Actually, two new skirts.

September came and things started to get a little bit cooler, I pulled my red bag out of it's slumber.
And made a red skirt (which I can't seem to get enough of).

I tried out my first monochrome look, piling on layers of navy.
Stretching the potential of the LBD, as always...
Enjoying an unusually warm fall day, and playing in the leaves.
Finally realizing I should just add a belt to a huge shawl to make it a perfect piece of outerwear.

A surprise pop of turquoise makes a statement outfit.
Keeping warm and cozy in the dropping temps.
A Thanksgiving outfit probably better for an evening out...
My thrifted fur collar starting to make an appearance on every coat I own.

Turning office wear in to polished party apparel.
Transforming a summer dress into winter wear.
Leopard and red - is there a better combo?
Well, maybe leopard and pink?

Well, that is it!! My roundup post for the year. This took me four hours to put together, which is insane, so please enjoy it, and spend a very long time looking at these photos. 
I've decided if I do a collage post next December 31st, I'm going to have to make the collage at the end of each month rather than waiting and doing them all in one evening. 

I've been loving everyone else's end of year round ups - it has been a very stylish year ladies - and I'm sure we will only be more fabulous in 2011. 
Hope you all have a wonderful time bringing in the new year!
