We’re Back!

Did you miss us? Well, we sure missed you! We surely didn’t mean to just go missing during the first week of the year.

And lest you think we just took an extended holiday break, let us explain… We took the first full week of the year for reflection, strategizing, and planning. In fact, we were able to get (almost) the whole team together in person in Houston! That’s something that rarely happens since we’re all so spread out and so busy. So, that in itself was hugely valuable.

What did we talk about? Well, in short…

  1. What did we do well in 2016?
  2. What can we do better in 2017?

We discussed this and more – all through the lens of data analytics. Given my background as an engineer and a finance professional, I love numbers! Give me data, and I’ll sift through it to find whatever gems of insight can be gained.

And that’s just what we did. Lots of reflection and then lots of strategizing and planning…

This is a business, after all. So, we want to do everything we can and get better every day.

Thoughts on 2016?

Before we go any further though and completely close the door on 2016, we’d like to do one more thing: ask you, our customer, for your thoughts on 2016. So, please, tell us:

  1. What did we do well in 2016?
  2. What can we do better in 2017?
  3. What do you like most here on Wear + Where + Well?
  4. What would you like to see more of?
  5. What would you like to see less of?
  6. What would make you click and shop more here on Wear + Where + Well?

Seriously, we would value your feedback!

Feel free to answer these questions and/or give us any other opinions or suggestions. You can do so right here in the comment section. Or, you can always email the team at [email protected]

As I said, we recognize that you are our customer. And we want to give you want you want!

Keep scrolling to read what you can expect in 2017…

What You Can Expect in 2017

Well, we have lots of exciting ideas in the works, but I’ll highlight three things you can expect here in 2017:

Colorful, Happy, Modern Content

As we discussed the Wear + Where + Well brand, we talked at length about what unifies all of our content. These three defining words kept coming to mind:

1. Colorful 

2. Happy

3. Modern

So, no matter what the topic around here – whether fashion, travel, food, wellness, or a completely new category – you can expect it to be delivered in a colorful, happy, modern way! These three common threads will continue to run throughout our content in 2017.

Everyday Outfits

Furthermore, starting today, we plan to address the biggest request we get around here: more everyday outfits. 

Correct me if I’m wrong, but from the bit of reader feedback we’ve gathered, it seems you all would love to see more everyday outfits at accessible price points. While you love the fashion forward articles (don’t worry – we will continue those!), you’d also like to see more of what we wear day-to-day.

Well, your wish is our command. Starting today, you’ll find (almost) daily everyday outfit inspiration here. Our plan is to publish fresh looks four days a week!

Note: remember, you can always find all outfit details at the bottom of each article. 

Even More Content

I’ll share more details on this next week. But for now, I’ll just tease that soon you can expect new, fresh content twice a day here on Wear + Where + Well.

One More Thing

So, side note… Did you catch any of the Golden Globes red carpet last night? If so, who were your favorites?

My personal top five favorites (in alphabetical order):

  1. Jessica Biel in Elie Saab
  2. Blake Lively in Atelier Versace
  3. Natalie Portman in Prada
  4. Zoe Saldana in Gucci
  5. Emma Stone in Valentino

I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Finally, thank you as always for your support! We look forward to an exciting 2017 with you. Much love.

      Thanks so much, Jessica!

  3. i have been reading your blog since it’s first post and as i slowly unsubscribed from so many others, i looked forward to your posts every day.

    i personally love carrie’s style. glamorous, but never fussy, thoughtful, flattering, and unique. i appreciate that i can’t name another blogger who has the same style and that’s why i keep coming back. style posts from other contributors haven’t resonated as much with me, even though, oddly, some have style more similar to mine (like Kelli’s neutrals).

    i understand people’s desire for more relatable looks at lower price points, but i personally do not. while i don’t have the same lifestyle or clothing budget as Carrie – that’s what i look to her for. the fashion forward looks with dream pieces that i can then adapt myself to my needs. i would hate to see her “dumb it down” and go from aspirational to merely directly transferable to my life.

    i personally only read the fashion articles. the food and beverage doesn’t have the same point of view as the fashion posts. i’m sure you get a ton of hits from Pinterest since they are so photogenic, but i wonder how many are your key demo that actually foster purchases through links.

    best of luck in 2017! may great things be ahead!!!

      Jessica – you know how much I appreciate your support from the beginning and throughout. Furthermore, I always value your insightful feedback. You are spot on with many of your observations. I will plan to email you privately to bounce some ideas off of you. Continue enjoying your vacation!

      Best,
      C

    Love your colorful & unique style! I also love the idea of more affordable pieces thrown into the mix more often. I love how you’ve been doing that recently with the J.Crew pink pants and sweater, which I’ve already snagged as well as the candy striped top from months ago! Loved the Kate Spade sparkly holiday dress too! Had to have that dress after seeing your lovely post. I always look forward to your posts. Happy New Year, Carrie & Team!
