I told you I wasn't ready to give up on blush, didn't I? Can you believe I used to be afraid to wear this color? If I were to wear an all blush outfit, or even a blush top, I look pretty washed out. But just because I can't wear it near my face doesn't mean I can't wear it at all (and, really, I make the rules around here, so I wear what I want! See: blush blazer). Finally embracing blush has been one of my favorite closet additions in the last couple of years. Who knew dressing fearlessly just meant accepting pastels into my life?

One thing I've never been afraid of wearing, on the other hand, is bows. Since entering the second half of my twenties, however, I've worried if I'd have to give them up. Luckily, this more "mature" option has entered my closet so I don't have to! You can expect to see this necktie blouse about a bajillion more times (ahem...see it worn another way here).

I'm working on rounding up my favorite outfits of the year for an upcoming post and I already know this one will be on it. I've already worn it twice and loved it, and I love how it looks in these photos. Because it doesn't hurt to ask (and I'm having trouble narrowing them down!), what are your favorite outfits I blogged this year?
