In terms of fashion, 2016 was quite experimental and almost daring for me, but at the same time I spent the majority of it rocking my classic combo of sneakers, a baggy t-shirt and some high-waisted denim shorts. I love fashion, I really do, but I’m not really into following trends or investing in the latest pieces, and can find that shopping online can be quite underwhelming when you have a specific taste like I do. Plus, there’s the whole thing about SPENDING LOTS OF MONEY, which can be ridiculously easy to do, especially when your favourite store’s buyers are KILLING IT for months on end.

But alas, here are all of the items/styles that I became utterly obsessed with this year (in no particular order, and with little explanation).

Warning: since I have a significant lack of OOTD photographers, most of these are selfies or versions of, and the outfits are cropped, but you get the picture (and probably feel my pain :p).

And of course, the usual suspects made the list:

 

P.S. as you may have noticed, a lot of the items that I mentioned tend to overlap in the photos, which not only proves how versatile these pieces can be, but also how much I bloody loved them! 🙂

 

Until next time,
