My 100th post! I can't believe it because it has gone so fast, but at the same time, it definitely doesn't feel like one whole hundred! Ok, first let's chat about this outfit, shall we?

Everything I'm wearing here is new, which is not my usual M.O. I typically like to mix and match new pieces with old pieces - it helps keep the new pieces in my wardrobe longer. Don't ask me why that's important, it's just one of my quirks. But anyway, I hadn't picked out my outfit the night before and didn't have time to experiment with outfits in the morning since I was running late (ok, later than usual), so I just needed to grab pieces I knew would work together. On top of all this, I wanted to take my Valentinos out for a spin! Wedges this beautiful needed to see daylight! I used my accessories to tie everything back together to these shoes.

Splendid top
Express necklace
American Eagle skinnies
Cara bracelets (first here and second similar here)
Valentino wedges (budget version here)

It's also quite appropriate that I debuted these shoes now since today marks my 100th post. I was trying to come up with something special for this milestone. I thought about doing a remix of some sort, or sharing random facts about myself. Finally, I thought it would be interesting to recap the top five most popular posts of my last 100, based on number of views. Will your favorite make the cut?

I recapped a birthday party for the most adorable two year old ever and explained how I was able to turn an outfit appropriate for a little girl's birthday party to a "grown up" costume party.

One of my favorite pinterpretations to date. And seeing this again almost makes me miss cold weather. Almost.

This is honestly one of my favorite outfits, not only that I've blogged about, but just that I've worn, period. I softened up the studded shoes with a floral lace skirt and boyfriend chambray.

I re-created a polyvore I did for a Boyfriend fragrance contest with items I already owned - pleather skirt, hot pink satin top, chunky jewels, leopard pumps.

And the number one post is........

I felt studious because I wore my glasses with a pencil skirt outfit and was afraid I was too librarian. I see this skirt blogged a lot, and I'm pretty pleased with myself to have mixed it up with some wine colored tights and booties - a combo I actually came up with myself and not from Pinspiration!

Thank you to everyone who has read each and every one of the last 100 posts. Heck, thank you for reading just one of them! Of course I'd love tons of followers, but at the end of the day, I've been really enjoying the blog world and being able to see my style diary evolve.

Now tell me, what has your favorite post been so far? Did it make the top 5?
