2016 Favorites – Outfit Recap

2016 has been a fantastic year overall. Quite literally every aspect of my life has been improved (with the necessary work of course), I learned many new  lessons, and I found great reasons to recall things I’d learned in my life so far. But most importantly, I set the beginning for a big change in my life on the beginning of 2017, when one of my biggest dreams will become reality. All great transitions in life begin with a very first step, and in less than one month, I will take this step!

Inevitably this will also affect my blog in the best possible ways. There will be more lifestyle & travel posts, in a much more personal tone. I can’t wait to share this new life journey with you! But before that, let me share with you an outfit recap with my favorite looks from 2016. I obviously didn’t take out to show you all of the outfits I wore in 2016, but only my favorites. Do you remember all of these looks? Which one is your favorites?

This is my last post for 2016 as from today I am on NYE vacation. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank you from my heart for your support through all this year, and to wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017 for you and your families, full of blessings! And if I could give you one piece of advice, something I found many reasons to recall this year, is to dare to dream! Dream of anything you want, everything your heart desires! There is no limit in dreaming! As Robin S. Sharma said, Everything is created twice. First in the mind, and then in reality. Believe in what you want so much, that it has no choice but to materialize. Your thoughts are the architects of your destiny!

So here is my 2016 outfit recap from my favourite looks. You can click on the photos to go to the specific post.

Sending love your way!

    I love all the outfits. The recap is so lovely. I generally love all the summery pieces because I have a love for maxi skirts and since I have muscular calves from being a tomboy as a child and walking everywhere in travel (yet this doesn’t stop me from loving the midi skirts) I love when they don’t cut me off at the largest part of my lower legs lol Your accessories are always on point and I love your layers. 🙂 Your 2016 looked fantastic. Looking forward to seeing what you will show us for 2017! Hopefully I’ll meet you in Europe in 2017. That would be so fun!


    • Stella Asteria
      10/01/2017 / 18:04

      I hope to meet you somewhere in Europe too, but it may be San Fransisco as well, because you have made us want to visit so badly!! Wishing you all the best for 2017 my dear Miki and thank you for your support and friendship, it means a lot to me! Hugs!
