Back at the end of 2014, I wrote a year in review post looking back at the outfits that defined each month, the things I’d done and accomplished that year and what I was looking forward to in the year ahead. I loved that post and have found myself reading back over it now (Ben says I live in the past; I say, so what?!), so I thought it would be lovely to do another as 2016 draws to a close to look back on in years to come.

2016 was a tricky one in terms of outfits and fashion for me. It didn’t start too badly as I continued to wear pin up and retro themed clothing, but found that my style was outgrowing that and I didn’t want to feel like I was playing dress up all the time any more. I was much more comfortable wearing jeans and whatever I could find, so I started doing that. But then I realised I’d got myself stuck in a fashion rut and wrote about this time and time and time again! I called it my Quarter Life Crisis and chucked out half of my wardrobe as a result of it (to charity, of course!). I’m slowly replenishing it, but still haven’t quite my full personal style mojo back yet – at the time of writing (mid-December!) I’m planning a style challenge though, so we’ll see how that goes.

But outside of fashion, how has my year gone? Complete the sentence! In 2016, I…

And another complete the sentence! In 2017, I…

  • Will be redecorating our en suite bathroom. We’ve already picked out a new shower and got quotes for it, ready to start in January!
  • Am going to Florida with half of Yorkshire!
  • Will be planning my wedding!
  • Going to my first wedding “fayre” (Charley insists these are the best kind ;D).
  • Am doing my first Brownie camp in January (eek!).
  • Would like to read another 50 books.
  • Want to focus on positivity and good mental energy with yoga.

And I’m sure there will be many more things to come that I don’t even know about yet! Here’s to another year of blogging and fun!

    Love these! You’ve gained some great achievements this year too. I’ve also taken up yoga this year and feel so much more calm and mindful I’m obsessed! And congratulations on the engagement too!

    Fab review, it’s great to look back and see what you’ve achieved over the year, I’m sure blogging really helps with this as I can’t remember half the stuff that’s happened in 2016. Roll on 2017, I would like my wardrobe to change a bit, try and build my core strength (physic said I had very little!!) and to focus more on the positives 🙂

    Love this! I see a lot of mustard and need to add some more to my life in 2017! Wedding fayres are great by the way especially if they have cake samples!!

      Mustard is a fave of mine, along with burgundy, so I love when it’s autumn and I can wear them all the time 😀
      I’m very excited for wedding fayres, free cake sounds awesome!
