2019 Recap: And the Award Goes To…

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas yesterday, if you celebrated! I always find the day after Christmas to be rather disappointing… After all, the excitement and build-up is gone, and all the presents have been gifted and unwrapped. BUT, to combat the post-Christmas blues, I’m trying my best to keep myself super productive today, starting with publishing my annual New Year’s Eve blog post (albeit, a little early). I always post some sort of yearly recap on Graceful Rags—last year it was an outfit timeline—but this year I wanted to revisit what I did in 2017. That year, I shared stats about my blog, like Most Viewed Post from the Year and Most Commented Post, in the form of a celebrity award show, since the Golden Globes and the Oscars are right around the corner (speaking of, who’s ready to see some crazy and beautiful gowns?!). For 2019, I wanted to host my Blogging Awards again and take a stroll—or should I say, a “scroll”?—down memory lane… So keep scrolling to see some of my best blog posts from 2019!

My Best Holiday Blog Posts

Happens to the best of us. Anyway, I realized that I had a lot of really fun blog posts last holiday season, so might as well share them again. Need Christmas and New Year’s Eve outfit inspiration? I got you covered. Trying to overcome feelings of sadness that sometimes accompany this time of year? There’s a post for that too! Keep scrolling for all my best holiday outfits and ideas.

Alternatives to Heels This Holiday Season

DSW, fancy flats, holiday season, holiday shoes

Welcome to Thursday, y’all! The other day I was strolling through my favorite shoe store, DSW, to return some boots and browse the selection. Naturally, I tried on almost all the sample shoes… It’s just what I do! I hobble around with one shoe on and try on as many sample shoes as will fit my foot. In the process, I realized they have a killer selection right now of really cute flats, and I wanted to share them all with you today! Keep scrolling if you need to make room in your wallet (wink wink). Continue reading “Alternatives to Heels This Holiday Season”
