2016 Rewind: My Year In Review

Best of 2016 rewind The Outfit Repeater

Hop into my Deloreon time machine as I take you back to the best of 2016 on The Outfit Repeater.

This year has felt like multiple years all rolled into one. Just me? I started it off with no goals and ended up accomplishing so many incredible things! Half the time I felt like I was living out my teenage dreams.

I’m conflicted as to say whether this was my best year ever as I also went through some significant personal growth that has left me feeling out of sorts for the latter half of this year. But life is all about balance so I wouldn’t expect anything less.

Today I’m excited to look back and focus on the highlights of this year that I got to share with you on The Outfit Repeater, as well as a few moments that never made it to my blog. Let’s do this!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

I don’t go to a lot of concerts but the big ones I watched this year were so much fun. I was able to experience an amazing Prince impersonator, say farewell to my friends at their final show, and see an ’80s cover band (complete with a cute George Michael lookalike) at two different venues.

I also got to explore a lot of my home state of Wisconsin, attend a lot of weird & wonderful festivals, as well as travel to the south for the first time where I met up with my BFF Lyndsey in real life!

Not to mention all the other awesome friends & people I was able to reconnect with this year. I really pushed myself socially and I’m so glad I did!

You’re Making My Dreams Come True

If you told me that I’d be in a national fashion magazine, acquire 10000 subscribers on YouTube, monetize my blog and work with sponsors, or finally get braces.. I would not have believed you.

These are truly the moments that made me want to pinch myself!

She’s Got The Look

My blog continued to be an important space for me where I could share my looks or latest hair color. And while the upkeep & expense of colored hair eventually forced me to go back to being a brunette, it sure was fun while it lasted!

Goodbye To You

2016 was the best of years and the worst of years. Despite everything, I would absolutely do it all over again.. but let’s just hope we don’t actually have to do that. LOL

What are some of your best memories of 2016? Share them with me in the comments!

  • I adore your rainbow hair! Yes, it is annoying how expensive it is to maintain bright hair colour.

    Congrats on your award! Seems like you had an awesome year.

    I have to choose your leopard coat as my fav. Great minds and all ; )

    Hope 2017 is filled with everything you’ve dreamed of.

    bisous

    • Thank you so much, Suzanne! I had a feeling the leopard print jacket would be your fave as well. 😉

  • Ah, this was the year of colorful hair for both of us! I really, really want to do a haircolor again someday besides brunette, though I’m thinking maybe a coppery red next time around. You really did get to live out some awesome times this year! I hope next year is even better!

    • I totally understand about the hair thing. I’ve been back to brunette so long that I’ve got the itch to do a rainbow color again! I think I may experiment with different placement next time, like streaks or ombre.

      You would make a fabulous redhead! It would look so cute with your coloring + freckles. If I remember correctly, you had a similar color a few years ago right? I hope 2017 is your year to do it! 🙂

  • You had such a great year! Glad I got to be around for it!

  • Looks like such a fun year! 2016 definitely was a roller coaster, but it was mostly good for me in terms of relationships and overall growth. Congratulations on all of your success! :]
