2016 recap

Another year over, so fast…

Actually, I’m rather happy to see the back of 2016, given what an annus horribilis it’s been… And I’m hoping trying very hard to believe 2017 will be better. But for once I don’t want to dwell on the political upheavals of the year (yes, we’ll get back to that later, rest assured) but will focus on something a bit more pleasant.

So, these are my 5 favourite outfits in 2016. Or, actually 4 of my favourite outfits; the last one is Professor M’s favourite.

Let me know in the comments which one you like best, OK?

smart casual over 40

maxi dress

boho chic

leather jacket over 50

Right… for some reason all of these outfits seem a bit… summery. Maybe it’s winter,  messing with my brain…

Oh well, a new year, new outfits… See you on the other side.

      Thanks, Nancy. Yep, that was my inspiration, too: 50's starlet, or my mother in the 70's…

    Great outfits all. I wonder, would you ever wear the dress from look three with the scarf from look four?

      Hmm… that might just be a bit too much fabric for me. It's not really a scarf, it's a kimono of sorts: very wide and flowy.

      Thanks, Sarah. Yes, pink is a gorgeous colour, and one of my all-time favourites (now, in my 'old' age, not when I was a little girl). Happy New Year to you,too, Sarah!

    These are adorable and I love your back drops. Outfit 2 and 5 are my favorites. I could put 5, together from items in my closet right now! 😉 Thank you for the inspiration!

      Thank you. I try to choose the backdrops carefully, I think they tell a story, too.
