A Look Back on 2016

2016 hasn't exactly been kind to our family so I am mentally happy to be starting a new year. Nevertheless, I firmly believe everything we go through can shape us for better or worse. I have been learning to see the silver linings in the darkest clouds and be so incredibly grateful for what I have. I still really hope 2017 has some good things in store though! It's been fun to look back and choose my favorites outfits and posts from the past year. Did you have any favorites I missed?

  9. 2017 is going to be your year. Love that snow picture!

  10. I hope 2017 is a good year for you! For some reason, odd years always seem to not be as great for me... not sure if I always try to make up for it the following year somehow or what. I hope your IVF journey goes good this year and your family is blessed, I am routing for you! And... as for your outfits... I really love that purple tunic in the second outfit and your October outfit is gorg, too!


  11. A great entry, happy new year !🌲🌲

  12. I can't decide if I prefer April, July or December! But they are ALL such great looks! I'm sorry that 2016 was a difficult year for you and your family. It was for me as well. I almost feel like a fog has lifted now that it's 2017. There is something to say for a perceived fresh start!

  13. So many fab looks! I am totally obsessing over that first one!

  14. So many gorgeous outfits, it's always hard to choose favorites. Hope 2017 is an amazing year for you!

  15. I am so sorry 2016 hasn't been kind to your family Laura. I hope 2017 is nothing like it and you get that precious second baby, too. You have had a great year style-wise and have rocked the casual outfits especially. My top 3 favorites are May, June and August. =)

    Happy New Year 2017 Laura and I will do a lot more catching up with your blog, this week, I promise. I miss you my sweet friend. Let's catch up on the phone sometime, or a Skype date. =)

    1. By the way, welcome by and check out my top 9 looks of 2016, which I just posted. I'd love to see what you think. Thanks and a Very Happy New Year. =)
