My 10 Favourtite Outfits Of 2016

Next Post Previous Post


As 2016 draws to a close I thought it’d be fun to reminisce on all of the outfits I shared on my Instagram account and, share my 10 favourites from the year with you guys as well as a little chat about what it was about those outfits that still do it for me.

Do you have a favourite? Any of them you don’t like? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments x


This outfit still floats my boat as it touches on the boho style that I love so much but rare lean towards any more as I don’t have as many of the frills & accessories I used to have before I started my wardrobe clearout.

That fur collar was bought at the Dublin flea & added to that jacket from a charity shop costing less than €10 for both… proof that style is attainable no matter what your budget x


I love the simplicity of the colours in this look & how the shapes do the talking. I’m a massive fan of kimonos & moved a lot more towards light kimono-type jackets like this in 2016 which I’ve gotten endless wear out of.


This is an outfit I wore on a night out during the summer (to a house party, hence the big bag to hold the vino!) & I loved the low cut top with leather look jeans to add a bit of drama but the kimono added over with simple ankle boots kept the whole things comfortable & very wearable.


I loved the drama of this look with the leopard print skirt & how I mixed sporty & girlie for a less obvious finish.


Hoops, slicked pony, Raybans & Reeboks… whats not to love!? I got great wear out of this white bomber over the summer too, I’ll be hanging on to that till next season!


This is a look I wore recently when Diageo kindly invited me to the Image Business Women Of The Year awards. I literally decided to attend about 2 hours before the event was due to start so there was no time for borrowing dresses/getting makeup done ect…

I was panicked that I’d feel really out of place just pulling something from my very limited wardrobe but, I actually felt perfect & very comfortable which is without doubt the most important thing. After all, if you don’t feel good in your outfit, you wont look good in it.


This is a look for the collaboration I did with M&S back in September… I saw it as the perfect opportunity to invest in some great seasonal pieces & I was really happy with the finished look.

The pencil skirt may not be traditionally ‘me’ but adding the statement bag & oversized knit brought the whole thing together perfectly.


This is a look that I wore to Sean’s 30th which was a manic day that left me with about 30 minutes to get ready! I knew I wanted to wrap my vintage Céline bag around a belt like that so kept the rest of the look simple to focus on that detailing.

I ended up being really happy with this look despite the chaos of getting ready which was a nice surprise!


I’ve really fallen in love with navy in the last year as a really wearable but slightly more polished alternative to black. I love the bold lip with the otherwise neutral palette and how the fedora stops the mannish tailoring of this look from looking too business-like.


Another outfit I love because I feel that the shapes alone keep it interesting rather than colours of prints. I love these ASOS slip ons for a little unexpected detailing & this roughly cut jumper paired with these vintage 1920’s trousers creates a silhouette that I am all about!

So there you have it guys, a year of trying to be stylish (… some days!) whittled down into 10 little outfits. I hope you enjoyed my style posts on Instagram this year & here’s to being even more fabulous in 2017! I’d love to hear in the comments about any of the outfits you loved or, really didn’t love! xx

 Well, the day has finally come where I've ran out of stock for my Depop shop With over 200 things sold in the last year it's safe to say it's been the perf way for me to pass beautiful pieces on as well as a great way for you lovely peeps to shop my looks (check today's snaps to see what my wardrobe looks like now icomeundone). As a small thank you to everyone who bought from me I'm offering two for one on all remaining stock INCLUDING combined shipping for the next 48hrs so, make sure to grab an absolute bargain before everything's gone!!  I'll be writing a post on my top tips for selling on Depop this week so, if you're looking to do a spring clean keep an out of for that xx (Depop username: icomeundone)  This time four yeas ago I returned from an epic round-the-world trip travelling 14 countries with 3 friends over 2 years  ✈️... although I'm not a 'quote person' this reminds me of the idea that "happiness is where you find it but rarely where you seek it" because, at 24 years old & 18 months out of college it as a conscious decision to invest in travelling the world over blowing the money in Dublin on new clothes & nights out . This decision was to be the greatest of my 20s, even more important I feel that getting my degree . The cultures we experienced, the crazy adventures we had, all left a lifelong impression on me meaning that in India, the second quote from the trip came about when I got a lady to freehand a tattoo on me symbolising "if you never jump, you'll never fly" It was truly a trip of a lifetime, I couldn't recount all of the adventures to you if we sat & had coffee for a week but, the memories it gave me, the confidence and, the idea that things will always work out are the greatest gifts I could've ever given myself, reminding me forever of the following: "don't spend your life searching for a place to call home, let the bones of your skeleton be the only structure you need" Trust yourself, rely on yourself & the rest my friends, will fall into place . Have a great wkend everyone, hope you enjoyed the quotes as much as I do ❤️❤️ (If you wanna hear a select few of some of my wild & woeful tales from my adventures travelling click the link in my bio to read that part of my 7-part travel series I did around this trip on the blog  xx)  Boho elements making a very welcome reappearance into my wardrobe as the summer comes closer ☀️  Looking for last minute plans for this evening?
