One final favorites post for 2016… this one highlights all the reader faves, personal faves, and most viewed outfit posts each month of 2016. I have put similar post together the last few years to highlight all the 2013 monthly faves, the 2014 monthly faves, and the 2015 monthly faves.
I’ll work backward, starting with December 2016. For each month, I’m highlighting:
- the most-viewed post
- the reader poll winner
- my personal fave
- my husband’s personal fave
Each original outfit post is linked below the collage, so you can explore to your heart’s content!
December 2016 favorites:
My fave ended up the poll winner, and Sam had such a hard time choosing a favorite that he ended up choosing two! I like all the different shades of red in this month’s collection of faves.
November 2016 favorites:
Three different patterns earned top spots this month: stripes, argyle, and snakeskin. Sam chose this month’s poll winner.
October 2016 favorites:
This month’s poll winner really surprised me! I totally thought my Agatha Raisin-inspired outfit would win, but it wasn’t even in the top five! Sam’s fave did NOT surprise me, after he dubbed it my “Han Solo” outfit. Sam is a total Star Wars geek! 😉
September 2016 favorites:
Woot, I chose the poll winner again! There’s just something so classic about red and black. And I should have guessed Sam’s fave, because he picked out this paisley tunic for me! ♥
August 2016 favorites:
Half and half! My fave aligned with the most viewed post of that month, while Sam’s fave aligned with the poll winner! Both are super-simple silhoeuttes, tops paired with a skirt or dress.
July 2016 favorites:
A hodgepodge of favorites, but it’s interesting that the color red took 3 out of the 4 top spots!
June 2016 favorites:
The same outfit took 3 of the 4 faves! Sam called this dress (and picture) my “Marilyn Monroe” look. Can’t argue with a classic! 😉
May 2016 favorites:
Blue came out on top in May, across the spectrum, from turquoise to royal blue to chambray. And my fave once again turned out to be the poll winner! Also interesting to note how often I wear cardigans, and how often they turn out to be favorites 🙂
April 2016 favorites:
In April, I was the odd one out! I chose a neutral outfit of white + grey + black, while my bold red + turquoise outfit was the overwhelming fave for 3 of the 4 top slots.
March 2016 favorites:
This month, it switched back to skirts and dresses! I see a shift to more classic, simple outfits in March. And for the third month in a row, my fave also ended up the poll winner!
Sam’s criteria for choosing his faves almost always comes to (1) color, (2) the shape of the clothing items, and (3) how well my clothing shows off my shape, particularly my legs.
February 2016 favorites:
The patterns continue to rack up the faves! Interesting how I chose the eventual poll winner again, with my eyeglasses tee and new brogues (which you can’t see in the cropped pic below). Also interesting to note how outfits with trousers took 3 of the 4 favorite slots in February 2016.
January 2016 favorites:
My houndstooth and red lips combo took top honors for 3 out of the 4 slots, with Sam the outlier. (Sam’s fave was also my personal runner-up.) Obviously I was feeling a bold red lip and bold colors and patterns at the start of the year!
