I realized I hadn’t done an old-fashioned outfit blog post for some time. Between lockdowns and winter and just being stuck at home I wasn’t wearing that many great outfits. But I did take some shots over time and so I thought I could show you a big collage of all of the different outfits I wore in the past few months. Some of these go back to before Christmas so if these aren’t all spring appropriate, you’ll know why. I also did something differently here: I sometimes also showed you how I layered my coats and bags with the outfit to show you how I wore things out and about. Hope you enjoy!
What I Wore #18 // 10 outfits I wore recently
We’re kicking things off with my Christmas Day outfit. I wore quite a bit of ZARA. I bought the pieces seperately but thought I could combine them into a perfect green toned outfit. The blazer and the dress are both ZARA. The tights are Primark, the belt is H&M and the shoes are my trusty chelsea boots by Vagabond. This was comfortable and I thought the colors were perfect for Christmas and layered enough to keep me warm.
Here we are two outfits, but really it’s only one as the second outfit here is just the outerwear I paired with my Christmas Day outfit. The first outfit is a chilled out outfit I wore on a day where I was stuck at home and didn’t feel like wearing sweatpants. I wore a black Weekday t-shirt, my Sézane reversible cardigan/ knit sweater, a pair of flared leggings from H&M and again the same chelsea boots as the outfit above. The outerwear I am wearing is a ZARA coat, a Monki hat, an H&M loose collar and my Polène bag.
So the next two outfits are renditions of the same thing. I wore my burgundy Esprit corduroy trousers and wore it twice: once more casually and once a bit more dressed up. I wore the first outfit to a hairdresser’s appointment. I am wearing a Sézane marinière and my Dr. Marten’s chelsea boots in the first one. The second outfit I am wearing a brown H&M t-shirt, a vintage blazer and Vagabond Western boots.
And this is how I layered up the corduroy trousers outfit. I am wearing my H&M trenchcoat I bought last year. The bag is new and is from Arket.
So this outfit is the same twice. I wore this Monki jumpsuit with my busted old Converse that I like to wear for outdoor Lindyhop dances. It was the first dance I have been to in a long time, but I already figured out pre pandemic that a jumpsuit just makes for the best dance outfit. This one was perfect for the spring vibes.
So it was Easter not long ago and I knew straight away I had to take this vintage dress out for a spin. I bought it last year and because it is a bit too long in the body, I had to hike up the skirt with a belt. It’s the same H&M belt I wore int he first outfit. When I showed this dress in a video I paired it with a pair of dark green sling backs, but for spring I felt these silver brogues for Asos were a perfect fit. Again I wore my H&M trenchcoat and my Polène bag.
This outfits is the last spring outfit I have for you today. I wore this fun Monki number to my dad’s birthday. Because of the dark green in the print I decided to go all dark green with my accessories. I again took out my Polène bag. It’s been my favorite ‘nice’ bag for outings like parties and birthdays. To keep the dark green trend going, I opted for my dark green suede Vila boots that I got on sale a few years ago.
So these two outfits are from last fall, but I only now have the chance to share them with you. I wore a red Monki blouse with a pink Monki sweater vest, a pair of Topshop mom jeans and my River Island red boots. I felt this outift was super fun and it made for a great work outfit. Outift number 2 features a Monki striped turtleneck, a sleeveless H&M blazer, a black Topshop denim mink skirt and my cherry red Dr. Marten’s 1460.
Finally, I know this doesn’t show my full outfit, but I liked the picture and so I figured I could show it to you. I am wearing a grey wool beret (but I don’t remember where it is from as I’ve had it for years). I am wearing a beige ZARA coat over a purple Monki turtleneck and a faux leather jumpsuit from H&M. I can’t remember the shoes I wore with this outfit.
