2016 in Fashion

It's always fun to look back on the year and reflect. I often find myself feeling nostalgic and spend a bit of time looking through years past, the first year I did this type of post was 2010, and it's interesting to see how much my style has changed, and which items are still in my closet today.

  1. It is so fun to look back. Sometimes I think it can be educational...to figure out maybe why something looks better than other things??
    So how do you get rid of unwanted clothing items, Lydia? I've used ThredUp a couple of times, but now they are charging a $10 fee, so I'm not sure I'd do it again.
    Happy New Year!

  2. What a great and stylish year you have had! I love looking back on all of your amazing looks. Happy 2017 Lydia!

  3. Fabulous style this year and I hope 2017 is your best year ever.

  4. It's been a stylish year for you! I always love that aqua/mint cocoon coat and those gingham shorts are so cute! Happy New Year!

  5. Most years, I find looking back at my outfits to be an experience full of surprises. But for the first time ever this year, everything seemed to fit - there were no experiments with colours that didn't work, no silhouettes I wished I hadn't worn. I was a strange and wonderful feeling, one that I think, or maybe hope, all fashion lovers come to eventually. When I scroll through this images, I can't think of a roll of styles that is more you, and I love it. Happy New Year! I can't see what 2017 will bring for your style :)

  6. Such a gorgeous year! I love that you always look so pulled together and ladylike. :-)

    Here's to a happy and stylish 2017!


  7. Wow, you've had a pretty flawless year! There are so many outfits here that I'm just swooning over (that baby blue jacket in one of the top photos? How gorgeous!).
