Faves of 2016

Hello all,
I hope you are doing well, and I hope that 2017 has started off in a brilliant way for you!

I have a hormonal disease known as Hashimoto's thyroiditis that leaves me feeling really crap at times, and this last week has unfortunately been like that. I'm thinking about writing a post only about that at some point, but for now, I just wanted to let you know that I'm not doing so well, so new content will have to wait.

But I have been seeing that a lot of bloggers make a little summary post about their favourite outfits of the past year in January, so I'm doing that! Here are my 10 favourite outfit posts (+ 1 baking post, and 2 extra photos) of 2016.

The past year started really well for me, and I posted quite a few outfit posts. My favourite of January would have to be this one:

I wore a beautiful velvet dress from Book of Deer that I just adore, with an icy grey bow with embroidered bears, and a rose gold zipper. Ugh it's to die for.

In February I had my 25th birthday and my favourite post from that month is the post with my birthday cake:

However, my favourite outfit post of the month was this one:

Once again I wore Book of Deer (wouldn't be the last time), this time the perfect winter's dress. And I topped it all off with specs!

In March you'd think that Spring would make an appearance but it didn't (not in northern Sweden anyway), so I continued to photograph my outfits indoors. My favourite was yet another Book of Deer dress:

This dress is stunning and with it's embroidered magpies it is a really unique and quirky dress. I added saddle shoes to complete the look.

April came and I wore berets a lot. This is my favourite outfit from April:

I wore a Dear Creatures dress, and have since then heard that there is no more Dear Creatures, which makes me sad. But I'm glad I've got this lovely dress to remember them by. The red accents really made this outfit.

May was perhaps the best month yet - I had my 1 year blogiversary, and celebrated by hosting a giveaway together with Book of Deer.

I wore a stunning summer dress from BoD with the cutest pattern, and headed outdoors to snap the photos (finally some sun and warmth).

My favourite outfit from June is this one:

I wore my first ever vintage dress, and I loved it!

July came by and I wore Windram Design:

This dress and the petticoat I wore it with made me feel and look like a cupcake. It was fantastic!

In August the country is at its greenest and everything is beautiful.

I wore an old Miss Patina dress, with a hat from ModCloth as I went poké-hunting.

September was an exciting month for me!

I went on my holidays to London, I saw Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, as well as some other awesome plays and musicals. I met with Andini from Adventures of an Anglophile, and Nora from NoraFinds, as well as meeting BoD creator Eilidh. Best month ever!!!

The gorgeous and beautiful Andini and I, on the Millennium Bridge (the Harry Potter bridge). Look at her awesome outfit!! That hat!

The ever-stunning Nora looking ridiculously classy, the ethereal beauty Eilidh dressed in an own design, gorgeous as ever, and I.

In October and November I was very lousy at blogging, and I didn't get one outfit post worth mentioning posted. But in December, at the very end of 2016, I went out with a bang, and an awesome outfit (if I may say so myself).

I discovered the brand Tatyana, and wore this incredible skirt for New Year's Eve.

And that was my year in outfits!
Hope you enjoyed this post, I personally loved looking back at the year in style.

Much love,


  1. Ok, each one I looked at and read I went "Yep, that was my favorite." Until I did it for every single one in this post, haha. They were all wonderful outfits and posts! I can't pick a favorite, that's for sure. Haha. Happy 2017! I hope you have another great year, Mona!

    1. Hahaha XD that's sort of how it was for me too. Thank you so much, that means a lot coming from you!
      Happy 2017 to you too! Thank you darling.
      Much love,

  2. Oooh..I love them all!! Every one of them is special and beautiful!! Maybe the one of you and Andini is my favourite, just cause it's the both of you!! Hopefully one day we'll all get a picture together :))) Have a sweet day lovely. Much love xx

    1. Thank you!
      Yeah, that's probably my favourite too, just because it was so lovely meeting her.
      I really hope so too!! :*
      You have a lovely weekend darling
      Much love,

  3. ALL of these looks are so good! The last may be my favorite though because it reminds me of a Grace Kelly dress! I saw that got posted by Tatyana basically immediately too!! One of my best gal pals has Hashimotos! If you do write a post on it I'm definitely going to send her that way! Hope 2017 is as stylish, and is even more healthy and fulfilling than last year! XO

    1. Aww, thank you beautiful. Yes, the Rear window outfit!!!
      Oh really? I'm sorry for her, but hopefully with the right medication it will be manageable. Oh thank you sweetie. I wish the same for you in this new year!
      Much love,

  4. I love all the outfits your wore but I think my absolute favorite is the first dress. I can see why you're a big fan of Book of Deer. Eilidh creates such beautiful clothing. I'll have to save up a little bit and get myself something! I'm sorry you're not doing well. It makes me sad because you've got the brightest, sweetest smile that just lights up your face and everything around you.

    Sending you warm thoughts and hugs,

    1. Ah yes, that is one magical dress. The details are just sooo perfect! Yes, BoD is amazing. You should check them out at the end of seasons when they have sales and stuff.
      Oh that's okay, thank you, that's very sweet of you. I'm not doing terrible, but with Hashimoto's you get very tired, so I don't have much energy to create new content.
      You are just the kindest. Thank you for your sweet comment.
      Much love,
