Best of In Kinsey's Closet | 2017

Every year I like to do a round up of my favorite looks from the past 12 months.  This year is no exception!  2017 was a dumpster fire of a year for me personally, but I feel like my style evolved quicker and led me some really cool places.  Check out my favorite looks of 2017!  

 This year's style MVP was this burgundy corduroy mini I picked up for less than $15 last winter.  I basically found a way to wear it year round and about once a week.  I am not sick of it yet, so I'd gear up to see this in heavy rotation in 2018 as well. 

Want to see how my style has evolved over the past few years?  Check out my 2014, 2015 and 2016 "best of" posts!

Black to Basics

Typically I favor bold prints, bright colors and some crazy pattern mixes.  This outfit is pretty far out of what I'd typically wear.  It reminds me of 2010 Kinsey that was all about nude heels and feminine dresses.  The black look is actually a bit refreshing!  Apparently this is a thing, this dressing in all black and looking timeless thing.  Who knew?!  A red lip, a deep part and a vintage wool coat were all I needed to go black to basics. 

PS: This amazing vintage coat is another one of Mimi's amazing basement finds.  I have the best grandmother (in-law) a gal could ask for!

Husband Unapproved

This outfit is what I like to call "Husband Unapproved".  AKA he saw it, hated it and tried very hard to be nice about it.  He agreed to help me snap some photos, but I'm pretty sure he was trying to make them purposefully out of focus or blurry so that I couldn't share this outfit with the world. What's not to love?!  I got this jumpsuit several years ago to wear to a concert, but it has sneaked its way into my everyday style several times since then.  To keep it weather appropriate I layered it over a cable knit sweater and tucked it into some patent booties.  Sorry honey, this jumpsuit is here to stay!

The Sound of Music

Recently I had a girlfriends weekend in Columbus, OH with some of my besties from college. We shopped, we drank and we sang! While in Columbus, we also snapped a few pictures in front of this musical mural near my girlfriend's house.  I have passed by it every time I have visited over the past few years and always wanted to stop, and we finally did!  

This look has me feeling the blues!  A double denim Canadian Tuxedo was perfect for a day full of fun with friends.  No look is complete (for me anyway) without a Scottie brooch!  I actually have two of these gold vintage pins.  One lives on my denim jacket and the other on a gold coat I wear in winter.  It's my most favorite accessory!
