This is the second part of my 2016 review. This is July to December if you’d care to join me…
July: Prints and Retro Vibes
I lately discovered a love for retro design and vintage dresses. This was especially strong in summer as I had just found Lady Vintage Boutique that has all kinds of dresses that are usually full-skirted but figure-hugging in all the right places. The weather was practically tropical on some days in July so I was glad for the cool new dresses I got through a few collaborations.

August: Summertime Sadness
As usual at this time of year a general feeling of tristesse overshadowed the summer weather. I seem to have a seasonal flow to my mood. But I also had a few positive things on the blog like the beginning of my long-awaited shopping ban. To celebrate a cork bag by Matt&Nat moved into my wardrobe just beforehand.

September: A New World Up Close
My birthday month held a few cool surprises such as the macro ring I got for my b’day. This opened up a whole new world of product photography for me and I just love using it for detail shots! I also attended the Bread & Butter by Zalando at the beginning of the month. My Shopping Ban turned out to be hard on some days but so useful in the long-run. I’m really glad I finally started it.

October: Tropical Paradise
One of my favourite months of the year, October this year also held a long-awaited vacation in store for us. We flew to Singapore and then went on to spend a truly amazing time on Tioman Island. I just loved everything about the tropics – from the amazing climate to the biodiversity we were allowed to witness.
