Another year is coming to a close and I’m getting nostalgic for the last 12 months, looking back over my posts for the year, seeing what I loved doing, and identifying things that maybe I didn’t enjoy so much. Reflecting like this has been fun, to see how my style has been evolving over the last 12 months has been interesting, especially from this summer onwards as I seemed to really grasp what it was that worked for me. So today I thought I’d share with you some of my most favourite outfit posts of 2016.
This was one of my favourite outfits as it was the first time I’d styled jeans in a good while. During the summer I pretty much lived in dresses and skirts, so with this outfit I really wanted to challenge myself to wear a less hyper-feminine look while keeping it in line with my personal style. I love this shirt, it’s one I still wear regularly, and I thought the bow at the neck was a sweet little touch!
I still can’t get over the price of this outfit! These pictures were taken on the hottest day of the year and the loose yellow flower print swing top was such a blessing on that sweltering day. I love the colours in this ensemble and it was so easy to wear. The rust coloured pencil skirt has been a gift to my wardrobe, I’m still wearing it now in the winter with tights and boots.
This was the post where my pattern mixing skills seriously levelled up! These floral trousers [gifted] were a blessing and I always love finding new ways to wear that old patterned George at Asda shirt. I remember there being some snark about the shell bag on social media, but I LOVE IT anyway.
THIS PRINT. I’m sensing a theme here in 2016’s dressing; loud colours and patterns. This dress is from Dorothy Perkins’ main range, one of the few times in my adult life I’ve gone into a ‘straight sized’ shop and tried something on that fit. It’s an incredible dress, and hands down my favourite single piece I wore all year.
This is it. This is number one. Another bargain dress from Boohoo that was a case of being the right price at the right time in the right place. This kind of style has been an old faithful for me and I love that this outfit gives odd hollywood glam vibes whilst still being pretty casual.
So there you have it, my favourite outfit posts of 2016. Now I seem to have a good grip on what exactly my personal style is (only took me 33 years!) I’ve resolved to push the boundaries a little bit more in 2017 and see where it takes me.
Thank you to everyone who has been with me throughout 2016, and thank you to those that have found me and my blog this year and joined the ride. It’s been wonderful, and I appreciate every one of you. Here’s to 2017 being incredible for all of us!
