As 2016 comes to a close I thought that I would countdown my favourite looks from the year! I have picked my favourite 12 (one from each month,) so you will basically see a summarized version of my year . To start us off here is a look from January "Red Bow", if you've been following me since the beginning you would know how much I LOVE headbands, particularly ones with bows, so of course one of my top looks had to include a GIANT red bow. I love how simple this look is with the striped chiffon blouse and blue pencil skirt it really allows for the accessories to shine!
For February my favourite look was my Valentines Day post ! I LOVE Valentines Day it's one of my favourite days of the year, its filled with Romance and everything pink and red (my favs.) In this post I talked further about my thoughts on valentines day and love in general so make sure you give it a quick read :) I can't wait to shoot a Valentines day inspired look this coming up year it was honestly so much fun !
My Favourite look from March is a bit more on the Preppy side (which is actually my favourite style) this post was " Navy and Green " I paired this simple Navy A-line skirt with a green cardigan and a white blouse and of course topped it off with a beret, you know how much I love wearing berets! I love the simplicity of the outfit and its something you could do multiple variations of just by switching up the colours.
April Marked the start of Spring where I began pulling my pastel coloured clothing, starting with this Light blue trench coat! The look is " Light blue trench coat " This is actually one of my favourite looks of the year (or maybe its just the puppy) You usually see beige trench coats so when I saw this one in stores I was automatically drawn to it due to its unique colour. I also love the silhouette its so feminine and it gives off a vintage vibe, which is my favourite combination.
May is when the flowers begin to bloom, which also happens to be one of my favourite times of the year because nothing makes me happier than taking pictures of flowers, if you follow me on instagram you would know this ! This look is from when I spent the day in Niagara on the lake with my family. I am still obsessed with this navy blue tweed coat !
You know my favourite post from June is my Birthday Outfit ! When it comes to my birthday I am basically a child! I get so excited and I count down the days till it finally arrives! SOOOO of course it had to be featured as one of my top looks from 2016 ! I love houndstooth, I don't know what it is about the print that I am automatically drawn to it, especially when its in gray and white! I also wore this pretty light pink packpack that i got as a gift for the birthday!
My July look is definitely my favourite look from 2016 ! It is the outfit I wore to the Queens plate. It was my first year going and I had an amazing time looking at everyones outfits and fascinators. Of course I wore my favourite colour to wear RED, with a matching red fascinator. I loved getting a chance to dress us as well as i had the opportunity of getting my outfit drawn by a fashion illustrator!
For my August outfit.... i couldn't pick between these two so I thought I would talk about both and you will get a bonus favourite! One of the looks was from when I went to the Zane Barlas fashion show for Toronto Mens Fashion week, I loved wearing this little white beret which has been featured on my blog a few times since then :) My second favourite look is this Nautical beachy look, which happens to be more casual than the stuff I usually wear but I absolutely love the matching separates ! That is something I want more of this upcoming summer!
For September one of the highlights was definitely going to a Tiff premiere ! Tiff is Torontos international film festival, which is where I saw the premiere for Colossal starring Anne Hathaway and Jason Sedeikis! This is the look I went for for the premiere, a gorgeous dress with cutouts at the top, and ruffles on the sleeeves. I paired it with a gold headband and big gold earrings, I was definitely inspired by Dolce and Gabanna when I put this look together.
Cabby hats have been my obsession since the start of the fall I think they are so flattering and make any outfit look put together, for this look I wore a burgundy cabby hat which matched perfectly with the burgundy tights. I also paired it with this navy coat with gold buttons which I think goes perfectly with the style of the cabby hat.
November was a great time for fashion this year, the weather wasn't too cold so you could really wear the fall pieces that you wanted to wear ! Fall is 100% my favourite time of the year, I think we can all agree that fashion is the best in the fall. This particular look is "(faux) fur scarf ", This was also one of the first looks to feature my new bangs, which was (in my opinion) the best decision I made this year, I wish I got them sooner!
This brings us back to December with my favourite look being this princess inspired look "Put a Bow on it" I love getting dressed up and will find any excuse to do, Christmas being the perfect excuse. This dress was actually my homecoming dress in Grade 11 I simply added a silk red sash and tied it into a bow at the back to make it look more festive. This is why my coset is so packed, you never know when you will re-wear something you love! And with this look that rounds up my favourite looks of 2016 ! I hope you guys enjoyed and had an amazing year ! Thank you for all the support and love I've received in the comments sections, Instagram and Youtube . I cant wait to see what the New Year brings! :) XOXO Carolina
