How Do You Measure, Measure a Year?

Guess what I did one year ago today? I uploaded my very first outfit picture to Bon Chic Bon Gastronomique, and it was what I wore for New Year's Eve 2009. Although I'd done a few fashion and food related blog posts, I consider New Year's Day 2010 to be the beginning of my blog as it is today. So here's my New Year's Eve 2010 look for my one year blog-iversary. 

Thank you so much to all of you who read my daily ramblings about fashion, food, and everything else! I can't believe how much this little blog has grown, and I hope I can be an even better blogger in the year to come! 

Top: Forever 21; skirt: Express (ridiculously old); earrings: Loft; necklace: (hard to see but I love it!) Jess LC, gift from Aaron; belt: Loft; tights: Old Navy; shoes: Nine West

Here are my fashion and food favorites of 2010:
