Rounding up twelve of my and affecionada readers' favorite posts of 2016!

Picture Day Perfect--reflecting on five years of teaching, and some of my favorite photos and pretty East Side lighting.

Autumn Leaves--this post produced one of my most-liked photos on Instagram! It also marked my first time using Stories.

Minnehaha--my first trip to the Twin Cities. Loved the way my tangerine silk shirtdress photographed along the Falls.

A Lilly at Rosecliff--my first Lilly Pulitzer dress at one of the many mansions we visited this summer (The Elms 1 and 2, Green Animals Topiary Garden 1 and 2, The Breakers 1 and 2).

Weekend Moments--a slow and easy weekend after a long and difficult grind of projects for my Master's degree and student narratives, and the cosiest sweater and blanket scarf.

At the Moment--a series I started to collect and share snippets of life, style, and beauty. Read more about it here, and another post here.

Lovers + Friends--a lovely summer day and evening spent in my favorite denim shorts, in a vineyard and on the grounds of a Connecticut mansion, with one of my best friends and our lovers.

Midwest Sunsets--the sunset at Montrose Harbor in Chicago.

Afternoon Tea--for my inner Anglophile, at one of my favorite spots in Providence.

The Elms, Newport--the first mansion we visited this summer, where I was filled with awe and wonder. These are some of my most pinned photos!

White Poplin--one of my favorite summer dresses at one of my favorite coffee shops in one of my favorite cities.

End of Summer Blues--finally hopped on the ferry and explored Block Island by bicycle.

It's been a year of growth and exploration. I appreciate those of you who have stopped by and/or engaged with affecionada, and hope that it has affected you in some way. We have big plans for this next year! I hope you'll continue to follow along. xx
