Anyone else feel like this month has made 2016 feel super long? I'm so ready for a fresh start, but before we hang up our new calendars, let's take a look back at 2016, shall we? It was a year full of fun times and lots of learning experiences. Here's a mini recap of some of my favorite times + a preview of what's coming in 2017.

2016 Highlights 

1. One of my major blog highlights this year was working with Rosa Loves DC to capture my outfit photos. She is a rockstar photographer and makes me feel so comfortable in front of the camera. (Another big accomplishment this year!)

For all of my outfit posts, check out the My Style page of the blog!
