12 months, 1 post | My 2015

Today is all that’s left of 2015, a year in which I have learned, grown, and had more blessings than I can count. Every year is different, but these past twelve months have been something else. Not only my life has changed, but I’ve transformed and evolved as a blogger, student, but most importantly as a human being. To me, 2015 has been a year of milestones and adventures. It was the year where I saw some of my dreams come true, and huge changes take place in my life. This year made me feel accomplished as a blogger and showed me that all of my efforts have been worth it. I’ve never been one to care much about numbers, but this year I became more conscious of how many people followed me and how to create content they would enjoy. In that time, 317 of you have followed this blog, and there are over 1500 of you following me on Instagram, which I celebrated, of course! Around the time that my ‘follower’ count on Instagram reached 1000, I took a trip to New York with my mom to celebrate yet another exciting event this year, my fifteenth birthday. Other highlights of my year included meeting and taking a selfie with Kristina Bazan,  graduating from my school in Paris, moving to Brussels, and starting my first partnerships (see here and here)!  I had the opportunity to travel extensively this year, going to Argentina, England, Thailand, the U.S, Spain, Portugal, Austria, exploring different regions of France, and coming to Belgium.

IMG_0126Without further ado, let’s look back at some of the best moments of this year on Living in Plaid, and some that you may have missed. If posts tend to get buried in your lengthy feed or lost in a sea of emails and notifications, the following posts are for you!

Discovering the temples in the City of Angels⎜April 

This year I had the amazing opportunity to visit Thailand, one of the most beautiful countries I’ve ever visited, and one I would return to in a heartbeat. All of the posts I uploaded about this trip were ones I loved, but I have a soft spot for this particular post. Why? Because I think that in a few images the beauty and splendor of the temples in Bangkok was represented perfectly. So if you haven’t yet seen this post, read it here!


The Viennese Balcony⎜June 

Another place I visited this year was Vienna, which is a city my mother had been desperately wanting to go to for years. It was beautiful and full of amazing scenery, such as the gardens of Schönbrunn Palace. One of my favorite blog pictures of this year was taken there, but if you want to see it you’ll have to follow this link!

And here are three of the most well-loved posts of this year…

Seaside Seventies Stylin’ ⎜March

DSC_0235Another amazing thing that happened in 2015? We got Jagger! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, let me enlighten you. The cute puppy that you see in this picture is a French Bulldog who is still cute, but not quite a puppy anymore. His name is Jagger, and  he’s the dog we welcomed into our family this past January. Now he is over a year old, and though you don’t see much of him here, he does make the occasional cameo on my Instagram. In this post, we took our first trip with him. We traveled around the Normandy region and stopped around several towns to take in the cultural sites, and beautiful landscapes.  This was a 70’s inspired look featuring some of my favorite boots ever! And it’s purely coincidental, but the following look also features the same pair of shoes, oops!

La Vie Fleurie⎜AprilDSC_0707

For the first memorable moment of 2015, I’m throwing it back to last Easter, when I put up this post. For those of you are new, let’s address the elephant in the room. Yes, that is my real hair! If you’re confused, just read this post and you’ll understand. When I uploaded this post, all of you loved it here and on Instagram! And I have to say, I kind of love it too! It’s so nostalgic for me, not only because of the hair but because these pictures were taken in front of the town hall of the neighborhood I lived in during my four years in Paris. They’re some of my favorite pictures when it comes to the quality of the image, but also because they seem so relaxed and natural. Even though this look was on the simpler side, it’s something I would wear , and definitely something that would be easy for any of you to recreate if you wanted to!

Red my mind⎜October

IMG_0448Now this seems a little more familiar. When I uploaded this look I wasn’t sure what all of you would think about it because it’s a little eclectic, not quite bohemian or edgy, or pertaining to one ‘style’, but you loved it! It’s been one of my most popular posts to date, and also one of my favorites to write and photograph. My dad took these pictures at the Alcazaba in Málaga and as soon as I looked at them on the small screen of my camera I knew they would capture the essence and beauty of this amazing place.

I want to thank all of you one last time this year. Without all of you, this blog wouldn’t be what it is. I hope all of your wishes for the New Year come true, and that you have an amazing start to 2016!

XOXO, Sofia
