2016 on Girl From North London

I'm not one for reflecting on my year in my personal life, but as I approach my third year of blogging, I wanted to look back on my favourite posts of the year. Hopefully this post will serve as a snapshot that I can return to in the future to remember what my 2016 looked like. Hope you enjoy as well!
P.S. All the images used are linked up, if you'd like to click through :)

My amazing Topshop faux fur coat came into my life, inspiring two outfit posts and I set about mastering the 'art' of the flat lay

Love Me Beauty subscription box, flat lay, beauty blogger
In February I was drooling over street style from across the pond during New York Fashion Week. I also worked more on my flat lay skills when I reviewed the 'Love Me Beauty' subscription box

In March I wrote my first links round-up, and shared my favourite look at the time - a long-line knit paired with a midi skirt - when the sun miraculously decided to show up. The OOTD also featured my new cross-body bag, which I also did a first impression post on during the month.

It was the 1st of April when we received the devastating news that Hedi Slimane was leaving Saint Laurent. Naturally I took to the blog to share my grief, and looked back at all his collections for the house. Regular readers of Girl From North London will know that I do a monthly wish list, and I particularly like the Light Neutrals edition I did for April 2016. Finally, to mark the arrival of Spring I put together a seasonal street style post.

In May, I thought it was about time that I gave an update on my original post on Public Desire, by sharing the new additions to my PD collection. I also made Summer resolutions and did my first blogger tag when I was nominated for the Liebster Award.

I was obsessed with my wrap choker in June (and still am) and apparently it was warm enough to wander round London without a jacket and bare legs?! I also put together a rare beauty post, and I still highly recommend these products so check it out.

my most worn items, asos black heeled boot
July marked 6 months of vegetarianism for me, so I wrote a post all about why I chose to change my diet, and struggles/points of interest that I discovered in the first 6 months. I also visited Bath, and created a guide to the city. Finally, I talked through the most worn items in my wardrobe and came to the realisation that I need help for my addiction to black.

20 Things for 20
Japan 2016 tokyo travels
Japan 2016 Back To Tahara
Japan 2016 Day Tripping
August is my birthday month, so to mark the occasion I put together my 20 Things for 20 post, where I discussed 10 things that I learnt at 19 and 10 things that I want to achieve before 21. I also went to Japan that month, which was incredible, and created a 3 part series on my travels.

I was loving my area of London in September, featuring Alexandra Palace (one of my favourite spots) and a tumbledown garden in my outfit posts. I also styled my Harajuku choker in 4 ways, which I'm really glad I did because I still wear it all the time!

The Blogger Tag, flat lay, fashion blogger
faux fur street style
Ok so can we please ignore the fact that I had to put the last 3 months of 2016 together because 3rd year hit me like a tonne of bricks. Anyway, from the end of September to the beginning of October I interned at Temperley London, an amazing experience that took me to London Fashion Week and Paris. In November I did The Blogger Tag, and my last post of 2016 was a street style round up dedicated to faux fur (my fave). 

I'm going to wrap this up with a quick thank you for reading my blog - if this is the first post you've read or if you've stuck with me through 2016 - and here's to a fabulous, fashionable 2017!

Lots of love,
