Top 10 outfits of 2017

Top 10 outfits of 2017
In 2017 I had around 35 photo shoots which, of course, resulted in outfit posts on the blog. All in all, I can say that in 2017 my style still kept changing and evolving, which I think is quite logical since as I am getting older my values, perception is changing and, of course, fashion trends keep changing as well. Do I follow fashion trends? Yes and no. Yes, because I do actively follow the current and emerging trends as otherwise I would not be able to call myself a fashion blogger. But I also answered ‘no’, because even though I am keeping up to date with the fashion trends, not always I implement them in my wardrobe. I am very critical when it comes to buying a ‘trendy’ item and the first question that pops up in my head is whether I can style it with items that I already have in my wardrobe. The second question is whether I would still wear the same item a year later. And based on my answers I make a decision whether it would be a good investment. I am also very critical when it comes to articles on the Internet as well as in magazines with titles like “Trends to leave in 2017” (an exaggeration of course) as I simply cannot understand how someone can dictate what I wear and when I wear it. I just cannot take these articles seriously as I’ve always strongly believed that our clothing is a way which helps to express ourselves and that it doesn’t have an expiration date. If I’ll want to wear a garment that is considered “out of fashion”, I’ll say: screw it! Yep, I am going to wear it anyways cause it’s the item I like, feel comfortable in and it is the way in which I want to present myself. Anyways, I feel like I've gone a bit off topic as today’s article is not about fashion trends or how we express ourselves through clothing, but about my last years best/favorite outfits. I included some of my personal favorites as well as yours (based on the statistics and engagement I received from you – likes and comments both on the blog and social media). Which is your favorite outfit? Would you put them in a different order?

2017. gadā man bija 35 foto sesijas, kas rezultējās arī tērpa ierakstos blogā. Kopumā varu teikt to, ka mans stils vēl joprojām turpina mainīties un attīstīties, kas, protams, ir arī loģiski, ņemot vērā, ka man kļūstot vecākai mainās manas intereses un uztvere, kā arī, protams, pasaulē strauji mainās modes tendences. Vai es aktīvi sekoju līdzi modes tendencēm? Jā un nē. Jā, jo es noteikti aktīvi sekoju līdzi izmaiņām, kas norisinās modes pasaulē un cenšos būt pēc iespējas informētāka par aktuālajiem un uzlecošajiem trendiem, savādāk es sevi nevarētu saukt par modes blogeri. Savukārt, atbilde ‘nē’ ir tāpēc, ka tas, ka es sekoju līdzi tendencēm nebūt nenozīmē, ka es šīs tendences iekļauju arī savā garderobē. Es kritiski izsveru katru modes tendenci un to vai man pirkt attiecīgas tendences lietas – es apdomāju to vai man konkrēto lietu ir ar ko savilkt kopā un vai es to pašu lietu vēlēšos nēsāt arī, piemēram, pēc gada. Un noteikti ļoti kritiski skatos uz rakstiem internetā un žurnālos, kuru virsraksti ir apmēram šādi (protams pārspīlēju): “Modes tendences, kuras atstāt, piemēram, 2017. gadā". Man tiešām no šādiem rakstiem “metas alerģija”. Kā kāds cits var noteikti, ko es valkāju un ko nē? Es vienmēr esmu uzskatījusi, ka apģērbs ir sevis izpausmes veids, kam nav noilguma. Ja es gribēšu valkāt lietu, kas jau būs "izgājusi no modes", es to arī darīšu, jo konkrētā lieta man patīk, es tajā jūtos ērti un tas ir veids kā es vēlos sevi pasniegt. Jūtu, ka esmu azgājusi nelielā 'off topi', jo, protams, šis raksts absolūti nav par modes tendencēm, bet gan par maniem pagājušā gada labākajiem, mīļākajiem tērpiem. Iekļāvu gan savus personiskos favorītus, gan arī jūsējos (balstījos uz statistikas datiem, komentāriem un ‘patīk’ atzīmēm gan blogā, gan arī sociālajos tīklos). Kurš no tērpiem jums patīk vislabāk? Vai Tu tos liktu citā secībā?
