• {Fashion Monday} December 2016 Fashion Favourites 

    December 2016 Fashion Favourites is a monthly roundup of all the Fashion outfit ideas and posts I shared in December. I must confess I am still in shock of the whirlwind that was 2016, at least for me it felt like that. One moment I am entering the year with so many plans and the next I am sat contemplating about the year. I will not complain as 2016 was an awesome year for me in all aspects of my life, even the bad things were also awesome. You only know how strong and capable you’re after passing through the tough times and smelling like roses.

    December 2016 Fashion Favourites

    As it is always with the Fashion Favourites roundups, I share the outfits I put together and tried. Unlike most months December 2016 Fashion Favourites featured more than four outfits. I share my outfit ideas on Mondays hence Fashion Monday, 4 Mondays a month equals 4 outfit ideas. December was the exception as I shared 5 Fashion Monday Posts. So without wasting much time, let’s look at what is included in December 2016 Fashion Favourites.

    December 2016 Fashion Favourites

    For the first Monday in December I shared two outfits which had a winter theme to them as we were entering winter Season. I shared Winter Holiday Fashion Essentials and Winter Fashion Basics, both these outfits where a hit with y’all. Sharing outfit ideas on the blog makes me really happy and even more happy when I get feedback from my readers. I have found sharing outfit ideas that people can relate to or try is better than unrealistic outfits which are just for the photos.

    For the fourth Monday in December, I shared A hint of pink to showcase my new handbag from NewChic. Pink is not a colour that I normally gravitate towards so when I wear it’s usually in small quantity. This bag became the exception as it was definitely eye-popping and catchy. I have had so many nice comments about it and people asking where to grab one.

    December 2016 Fashion Favourites ~ Christmas ideas

    For the second Monday I featured Sparkle into Christmas as we were getting close to Christmas. Though this year I shared ideas, I didn’t dress up which I had mentioned already on the blog. Though I wasn’t feeling the sparkles that wasn’t going to stop me from sharing an outfit idea. Many of you were able to fit into one of the Five categories I had described in the post. I fit in all of them but it also depends very much on the mood and occasion.

    Stay warm and Stylish this Christmas was the featured outfit idea for the third Monday in December. I had mentioned that I rarely dress in ugly Christmas jumpers so I found a cuter version and styled that. Regular readers also know I am all about comfort before style, once comfort is nailed style can follow. I believe if you’re comfortable in your outfit the stylish of it radiates off from within. You don’t have to be runaway level, you just need to be happy in yourself.

    December 2016 Fashion Favourites ~ Others

    Whilst Fashion Monday is dedicated to sharing Fashion posts, sometimes I share throughout the week. During December I put together other outfit ideas but mostly to feature the brands I had been working with.

    butterfly twistsRecently featured Butterfly Twists and Brantano footwear and shared how I dress the shoes from these brands. Butterfly Twists was the first shoe brand I worked with in 2016 that sent me shoes to review on the blog. Brantano footwear is another brand who sent me shoes to review on the blog and collaborated three times in 2016. House of Fraser is the biggest and most frequent brand I have collaborated with in 2016 and was happy to recap the collaborations.

    2016 was a great year for collaborations, travel and personal growth and development. I am excited to see what 2017 will look like.

    Of the December 2016 Fashion Favourites ideas I shared, which was your favourite and why?

      Usually I can’t relate to the fashion picks I see on a lot of blogs, but I actually love your style.

      I love dressing up for this season! Especially since you can get away with wearing boots all the time, plus all those sparkle too! I enjoyed all your outfit posts for the month!

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:33 am

        Thanks Amanda, I have taken a liking to wearing boots daily

      Sparkle into Christmas is my favorite – it’s so chic and super stylish. Winter fashion’s just fab and we do not have winter here ( gasp! )

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:31 am

        Thanks Dawn

      The jackets and sweater all looks so pretty. Sometimes I wish we have colder weather here in Indonesia just so I could pull off wearing cute winter items 😀

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:30 am

        Awww and I wish we had a durable summer so that when winter arrives I feel yes I needed that lol

      Those boots look comfy! With all that fur on the inside, my feet would stay extra warm. That would be the thing that I would like most here.

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:30 am

        That’s what I loved about these boots, so warm and comfy inside

    10. January 3, 2017 / 2:39 am

      I love that a lot of shirts are still running longer– that’s nice especially with leggings! And I really love all of the sparkly, glittery collection!

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:29 am

        Me too, I love longer tops these days especially on lazy days when I want to wear my leggings

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:28 am

        It sure is very warm and thanks for stopping by

    12. January 2, 2017 / 11:39 pm

      I want that silver skirt it is absolutely gorgeous and I am currently obsessed with metallics right now!

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:28 am

        Thanks Ana, I normally stay clear of Metallics as I don’t feel I can style them right

    13. January 2, 2017 / 10:55 pm

      I’m really liking the blacks, whites and silvers in your “Sparkle into Christmas” picks. You had some really good ideas.

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:27 am

        Thanks Liz, I was definitely wanting something that sparkles but not something only Christmas/New Year worthy but year round

      Wow! Love all of the different styles! I’d love to have that green shirt/sweater and the grey, black and blue coat in the very last group! Gorgeous!

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:26 am

        Thanks Alaina, I love sharing my style ideas

    15. January 2, 2017 / 9:25 pm

      I love your picks! Especially the sparkly Christmas ones! I have Butterfly Twists and I have a draft post on them. I should get that out! I was looking at the wellies the other day, so I’ll have a look at your post! 😉x

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:25 am

      I love winter, for being able to wear snuggly clothes. Some lovely choices there!

      I love getting all wrapped up in the winter – nice cosy scarves and hats 🙂
      I do need a new coat though at some point x

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:24 am

        I too love being all wrapped up as I can’t deal with the cold

    19. January 2, 2017 / 7:01 pm

      I love this set of fashion essentials. I love dressing for fall and winter. Boots, skinny jeans and a big sweater is my favorite combo!

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:23 am

        Though I have never been a lover of fall and winter I have been embracing dressing for these seasons

      These are all great choices! I loved the off the shoulder top though! Fun and sassy!

      Wow so many great looking items where does a person start. Keep going back to the winter coats, scarves and boots. Guess that is where I will start.

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:22 am

        Hahaha glad I gave out a lot of options

      I love the Sparkle into Christmas collection – perfect for all the holiday parties. But, you’d most likely find me in the Stay Warm and Stylish during the holidays because it’s so comfy looking and not boring at all. Love all the looks!

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:21 am

        Thanks Alli, this year I was more stay warm and stylish and less sparkle but I love both looks anyway

      I really want to get a good beanie. I have a big fat head so I’d have to go try on in stores…and then be all crazy looking, so I never do, but that slouchy beanie you have pictured is making me want to try.

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:21 am

        Awww bless you hun, I have a big head too but definitely found some beanies that work for my huge head lol
