At the end of each year, I love to look back and reflect on my best fashion moments. Usually I only have a few that I deem noteworthy, but this year I upped my style factor and really brought my “ A-Game.” So instead of my fabulous fashion moments that I brought you in 2015, I’m celebrating 16 of my sweetetst style moments of 2016.

If I had to pick a time that everything was perfect and all the fashion gawds blessed my dress game, it was this day. This may be my favorite look of the year.

This year I played with neutrals big time, especially grey. I had so much fun with this look. The fringe sweater is a showstopper and the nude heels were my go-to all summer long.

Everyone knows I love a good thrift store find. The beaded vintage skirt was a fabulous find and a statement piece in my closet. I loved this look so much, I wore it out on my birthday.

Here’s another deal that I dolled up . I scored this Who What Wear Collection ruffle blouse for less than $10. Who knew it was this fab that it would make “My sweet 16 of 2016.”

This year I decided to give myself a few themes to keep me motivated about posting daily outfit looks and one of those themes was “ All White “ looks. Pretty simple , but the challenge was to make sure each look was different , fashion forward, and budget friendly. This was favorite look from the challenge.

I also took risks this year. This black and white faux fur Romeo and Juliet Couture sweater screams risk taker. It also made me look like an extra from Scream Queens. I could totally be a Chanel.

You’ll never see me in a pant suit or any suit for that matter, but the way I styled these matching separates from Target I might add a few to my closet in 2017 . This was definitely a power suit for sure .

This summer I developed a uniform. I kinda wore the same thing all the time. Who’s been here before? I would style a midi solid colored dress with a kimono and a pair of sandals (heels or flats). A floral headband would set the look off. Here’s one time I nailed this look.
