It's been a busy, yet amazing year for us, and we are overly grateful for all the events we got to attend, partnerships we worked on, and most importantly, the readership we've grown! As we bring these past 365 days to a close (but seriously, where did they go?), we can't help but reflect back on some of the highlights in our blogging world. So join us as we reminisce (it's time to get sentimental, people) on some of our favorite posts of 2013!

10LENSCRAFTERS #AMUSTGOSEE WITH OLYMPIAN NATALIE COUGHLIN: I love glasses and swimming - how was perfect was that?

9GOLDPLAITED: What girl doesn't love getting their hair and makeup done? They did an amazing job doing everything I wish I could do at home.

8NELLCÔTE OSCARS PARTY: Red carpet, champagne, fancy dresses, and a photo booth. Need I say more? It was a fabulous Sunday night!

7JESS'S WEEKEND TRIP TO NJ AND NY: I spent a wonderful weekend with family in NJ and roamed around NYC with my parents and boyfriend. 

6JESS'S TRIP TO SOUTH FLORIDA: It was a wonderful trip back home for my best friend's bridal shower that I helped throw and spend some quality time with my family.

5JESS IN MADISON, WI!: I aboslutely love road trips with my boyfriend and this was no exception.

4WHO'S YOUR BELLE?: We all know how important it is to have that perfect pair of denim and I have finally found it! And Jill and I almost lost our fingers for this photoshoot, so I'm sharing it as much as I can!

3THE LIMITED'S 50TH ANNIVERSARY FASHION SHOW: I had the most amazing time walking in this fashion show with fellow bloggers, models (and still see some of these ladies!), and some amazing people I look up to!

2LINCOLN PARK ZOO BALL 2013: WILD AT HEART: How many people can say they went to a ball this year? Lions and gowns and dancing, oh my!

Jill's Top Favorites of 2013

10THE DARIA DRESS: Because playing dress up is my favorite part of blogging, I had to add this post!

9JILL'S MEETING WITH SIMON DOONAN: Funny, stylish, witty, and quick... what's not to love about Simon Doonan?

8DKNY 3 WAYS: #NOTYOURORDINARY: Just when I thought I couldn't love DKNY more, they help me step out of my color comfort zone and jump into the neon trend!

7JILL'S GOLDEN GLOBES RECAP: My Christmas comes during awards season, and I can't wait to start 2014 with a whole new round of red carpet recaps.

6(FORMALLY) INTRODUCING TITAN: With our constant Instagram posts of my dog, is there any question as to why this is one of my favorite posts?

5MY BEST FRIENDS WEDDING: THE BACHELORETTE PARTY: Being the DIY-aholic I am, this was one of my favorite things to plan.

3WILD AT HEART: The Lincoln Park Zoo Ball was one of our favorite nights this year, and this was the photo shoot that got us there. Plus it was so much fun working with my brother!

2JILL'S U OF CHICAGO GRADUATION: The highlight of my year was receiving my Masters degree from the University of Chicago. Not trying to toot my own horn but... TOOT TOOT.

And our top post of 2013?! Drum roll, please...

1103.5 KISS FM'S JINGLE BALL 2013: We chatted with Enrique Iglesias and Fifth Harmony, danced alongside Robin Thicke, and were closing than front row at Jingle Ball. How can you seriously beat that?!

We can't help but share a couple honorable mentions - THESTYLISTED + PHOTO SHOOT & BEHIND THE SCENES VIDEO, because any time together is a good time, and JESS & JILL ON REFINERY29, because we owe a lot to that feature! We also want to thank all the bloggers we've worked with this year, and give a shout out to the very special people behind SingleEditionMediaZapwaterSkirt PRSkoog ProductionsYL Communications, and DKC!

See you in 2014!

Jess & Jill
