Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful celebration to ring in the new year, whether you attended a special event or spent the night at home cuddled up in front of the television! I thought it would be fun to do a fashion flashback to 2018 of the most viewed posts for the year. It’s interesting to see which posts got the most attention–good or bad, the data doesn’t tell me! Lol! So, I’m going to assume my readers liked these posts and gained some style inspiration.
How did you spend New Year’s Eve? We tend to vary how we celebrate from year to year, and this year spent a lovely evening at home and then went out and saw a movie! New Year’s Eve is a great night to go to the theater; there is virtually nobody there so you can pick your seats and enjoy your movie without the crowds.
This post is a bit long, and it’s mostly photos, so sit back and enjoy at your leisure. Without further ado, and in no particular order, here are the most viewed posts for 2018.
