Cold weather means jeans, jeans and more jeans - even under dresses!
December was a strange, strange month. So busy, as Decembers usually are, and a whirlwind of emotions for me.
Does anyone else feel like they’re in a bit of a rut this month? I’m struggling to get going after Christmas!
Taking photos of my outfits went to the wayside a little, but these were my favourites.
I post my outfits in my mirror like its 2008
on my instagram account, called The Maple Armoire, but I defintely have a few favourites from each month. These are my favourites from November.
Cozy cardigans, stripes and looking like a cliche cartoon French person!
Big cozy cardigan from H&M - last year
Black trousers - Uniqlo, cigarette cut
Pinafore dress - Monki, a few years ago
Beret - Charity shop, had it for almost 10 years
Red shoes - Marks & Spencer last year
Woodland embroidered shirt - McVerdi (from L’Habilleur in Paris, which I HIGHLY recommend for discount/previous years collections of amazing brands)
I tend to re-wear items a lot, be sustainable where I can be, wear things for years until they fall apart and only invest money in things I know I’ll wear forever. I used to follow a lot of style/fashion bloggers and get a bit sad when they posted things the average person (me!) couldn’t afford. It just wasn’t, and isn’t, relatable to the majority. So I now just take inspiration from a few of those people, instead! It’s a lot more fun.
It's HOT. I'm no good at dressing for summer. My wardrobe is full of jumpers and layers, but hardly any lightweight clothes. It kind of feels like an enforced capsule wardrobe.
Does anyone else struggle to dress in the summer? Maybe I'm just naturally an autumn person...
I'm posting my outfits every day on instagram @daubdash
There has been no photo-taking for a little while nowI've only had time for quick stolen moments while doing other things Trying to get back in to the swing of working full time again is difficult! Hopefully a work/life balance will figure itself out soon... until then, here's an outfit that I really enjoyed wearing last weekend Surrounded by greenery & dappled light
