Hello and welcome to Dressed for My Day. I’m so glad you dropped in. Yesterday I paused to clue my readers in on where I’m heading in 2020 with the blog. If you didn’t get a chance to visit, I hope you’ll take a moment to find out what to expect in 2020 here at Dressed for My Day. But today I’m taking another look over my shoulder to learn from the past. I’ve gathered the top 19 fashion posts from 2019 so I can see what you gals really come here for.
These are only fashion posts, not beauty or fitness or inner beauty. But those include outfit posts, how-tos, # ways to style… and other fashion advice type posts. Honestly, many of these are my favorite posts, too. And after reviewing them I’m even more convinced that I’m heading in the right direction with the few changes I’m making in 2020.
By the way, thank you so much to those of you who left all those affirming comments yesterday! Wowsa!
Oh, and don’t worry. If I can possibly help it, this is not going to be a wordy post. But I also hope you’ll check out any of these heavy hitters that you may have missed.
Let’s see which posts are bringing the most visitors and faithful readers to Dressed for My Day!
I happen to know that Christopher and Banks swung a lot of readers my way with an ad they sent out featuring this blog post. But that’s okay because it also brought some new subscribers my way. That tells me that many of my readers enjoy shopping this brand.
#18 – A Trench Coat for Spring
Not surprisingly, the pure outfit posts that rated highest were collaborations with other bloggers. But I also know I have a lot of Talbots loyalists among my readers, too, which accounts for some of the popularity of this post.
I enjoyed working with Chico’s and I know many of you love their styles. They’ve assured me we will collaborate again, so hopefully I can bring you similar posts in 2020.
Every time I share a collection from Target I get an increase in sales and page views, so I know a lot of you enjoy shopping this reasonably priced retailer.
Common sense tells me that the posts that meet a common felt need are going to resonate most. That’s why this post did so well undoubtedly. I think we all struggle a little with what to wear in those in between weeks!
This was the only post in this mini-series that did well. In fact, I watched page views go down with each subsequent post. Evidently a lot of my readers identify as ovals! Which is great information for me to keep in my back pocket.
I think we all want to know what to wear to look our best.
I’m pleased that this post did so well. This is what you can expect to see a lot of here at Dressed for My Day in 2020.
Can you see why I think it’s safe to take Dressed for My Day more toward slow fashion? These wardrobe staple posts seem to resonate with you gals.
I’m beyond pleased that my collaboration with Kristin was one of my tops posts. This is one of the few “outfit posts” in the top 19, and I hope it swung her some good traffic, too. Again, this is really a how-to post with an outfit as the backdrop. You can expect to see more of these, too.
The fact that this post is number eight reminds me that many of my readers are Talbots shoppers. No, I know that’s not all of you. But many of you. I’ll continue to cover a variety of stores.
Another wardrobe staple styled in a multitude of ways. What other wardrobe staples would you like to see similar posts about? I’d really like to know.
Here’s another one of those posts that meets a felt need. I just hate the title of this post! But I try to title with the words I figure women put into search engines.
Yet another wardrobe staple! And this is one of my favorites. In fact, I’ll probably offer an updated version in 2020.
Camo is still trending, but it’s not as hot as it was last spring. Still, this post continues to attract readers almost daily.
Again, we all seem to love posts that tell us what we can do to look our best. We especially like it when those tips are easy and actionable.
So many of my readers are choosing to put away their shorts. And I find myself wearing them less, too. So it doesn’t surprise me that this post did well. I think I’ll post an updated version of this one in early summer.
I’ll be posting a similar post in the spring. I think the big draw of this post is that it focuses on the 40+ woman and how she – you and I – can best wear current trends. We’re at an age where we want information that speaks specifically to our needs. I’ll be doing more of that in 2020.

Blessed for My Day
I’m praying for God to bless Blessed for My Day this year. He has certainly blessed it for the past 22 months. It’s been a joy to watch it grow. But I am praying for Him to increase its reach even more this year, giving me the opportunity to encourage women like you and me to remain vibrant, engaged, relevant and influential.
But in the end, it’s up to Him. I trust that whether this little corner of the blogosphere grows or diminishes, He will guide. I encourage you to hold your dreams and plans loosely, too. Let’s trust Him to work through us in the coming year.
Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” ~ James 4:13-15
