2019 Top 10 Blog Posts

Kicking off the first week of January with the last recap from 2019. Today it is all about the 2019 top 10 blog posts – the posts that received the most attention and were read more than any others. As with the 2019 best sellers I’m a little surprised by some and definitely not surprised by others! Some of your favorite posts were also some of my favorites. Although there were a couple I would have liked to see on this list: How to Create a Beautiful Fall Charcuterie Spread, Rosé Inspired & Filled Spring Brunch, Ten Spring Date Ideas: Five From Him, Five From Her, and What’s In My NYFW Carry On Bag.

BUT have enjoyed seeing what y’all were most interested in. Reviewing the past year has really helped me plan content for 2020. I plan to focus more on the content you enjoy and want to see vs. those that seem to receive the least amount of views (styled posts)! If you have any additional feedback for content you would like to see here, please email me (louellareese@gmail.com) or leave a comment below. I would LOVE to hear what you’re most interested in. 

10. Winston-Salem Travel Diary & Guide

This was truly one of my favorite trips of 2019. So unexpected but oh my goodness did I fall in love with Winston-Salem. I am honestly dying to go back and take Joshua with me. I want him to experience the charm that Winston-Salem has to offer. If you’re local to the Piedmont region or even a couple hours away, I would recommend planning a 3-day weekend to Winston-Salem.

9. The Perfect Affordable Trench Coat | NYFW 2019

The only styled post to make it on the list! This recap has taught me styled posts are not y’all’s favorite. Therefore, I will be stepping back from them a bit and sharing other types of content y’all enjoy more. For those of you that do love styled posts, don’t fret I will still share here and there plus will highlight more looks + outfit ideas via instagram, instagram stories, and the liketoknow.it app this year. 

I will say this was one of my favorite looks at NYFW last year. Chic, simple, and perfectly functional for walking around the city, attending meetings, and attending shows. I LOVE the navy tights, think they totally make the look. Oh and of course the main piece, the affordable trench coat! Such a great buy.
