Since the year is quickly coming to an end, I wanted to showcase some of my favorite style moments of 2016. I'm no Rachel Zoe, so I guess having a "style moment" sounds silly, but hey, that is why most of you stop by right?

This year, I definitely was a repeat offender. I wore so many pieces over and over again - I have found that having a smaller selection in my closet helps me get ready in a pinch, and I know that everything fits relatively well (with the exception of a few things that are too snug but can't let go of just yet). It's hard being a style blogger today and NOT giving in to every sale, promotion, or outfit that another blogger is wearing, but I'm at the point where having too much clutter isn't good for me. I don't want to rely heavily on possessions to make me happy; rather I'm working towards finding that within. It's a novel concept. Although I love having this space to share my finds, I think it's important to take it with a grain of salt. I know you understand.

Laura explains this better than I can. 

Anyway, some discoveries of keeping a style record in 2016:

1. Favorite color combinations

  • Blue and white
  • Olive and white
  • Red as an accent

2) I really like black pumps. I own four different pairs.

3) I have about ten pairs of jeans in my closet, but really only wear half of them regularly.

4) Little dresses are my "thing"

5) Little bags are also my "thing"

6) Fit and flare styles flatter my body best, since I'm slightly smaller on top than I am on the bottom.

7) I wear the same sunglasses too often! I promise I have eyeballs. I think most of you know that but I'll try to skip them more often in the future.

8) My style is really simple, bordering on...boring?

I plan on doing a round-up next week of my favorite beauty finds this year, so stay tuned for that! I also have a few more outfit posts planned. I just wanted to get this up before things get too hectic! Have a Merry Christmas to those who celebrate, and I'll see you back here on Monday. 


  1. I love Laura and her resonated with me, I am in no way a minimalist but I do want to do less impulse purchases. All your outfits are perfect, classic and so you.


  2. Love this look back at your "greatest hits" this year! It's also fun to read your self-analysis of your style. I would certainly never call you boring! Definitely classic, though!

  3. I love this post Noelle. Your style may be simple, but you know how to dress your shape well and always look put together. Your clothes also work in real life which I as a reader appreciate.

    Keep up the good work. Btw, all the sunshine in your pics has me craving warmer weather. We're sitting under a lot of snow right now

  4. Love all these looks! It's so fun to look back on your outfits throughout the year. And can I say I am so crushing on those blue heels!

  5. Firstly - my favourite outfit is that off the shoulder lace top - it was MADE for you...And you look so beautiful in it. Secondly - your style is NEVER ever boring - you have a flair for putting outfits together but it's never repetitive. Also - am inspired by your analysis of what you like and what you don't. I've recently been trying a lot of new trends thanks to blogging - and while I adore it, I think it's important to focus on making sure the majority of my wardrobe is in colours that make me happy. My recent vacation outfits made me realize that I actually adore ice blue...So along with peachy pink and creamy white, I want to make sure that I focus on what makes me happy :-)

  6. No, I would certainly not call your style boring! Printed dresses and lace and bright colors are not boring. It's good that you feel like you've figured out what works for you, and if having a smaller closet makes your life easier and happier, why should you have to defend it? I think the reason I started my blog was to find new ways to wear things I already had... just the times and the constant barrage of trends and sales has made me shop more and more and I don't really think that is a good thing.

    but anyway, I hope you have a very happy holiday!

  7. Cute style you have!!!!


  8. I love how you recapped in photos but also in summary of your style. I should think through that for me. I definitely do the same with jeans (have a ton and wear just my favorites). Love your blue and white combos. You always look so chic!
