March is said to come in like a lion and go out like a lamb, but I’ve always found the opposite to be true, and, as if to prove me right, this month started off with glorious, spring sunshine and blue skies, before dumping a ton of snow on us towards the end of the month. Thanks, March: hate you, too!
Because of that, this month’s outfits are a bit of a mixed bag, and, once again, I didn’t really take too many photos of them: partly because the events of the month made it hard for me to care much about what I was wearing, but also because I’m now so sick of winter clothes than I’m basically just wearing the same few outfits over and over again, while praying for spring to finally arrive. The usual, then. Here are some of the things I wore in March…
This was back at the start of the month, when I was pretending that it was totally warm enough to get away with just a trench coat and sweater, because, MARCH! Which is not February! I do this every single year without fail, but it’s the one area of my life that I ever show any optimism about, so just let me get on with it, yeah?
The optimism continues! In my defence, I think this was actually a fairly warm day (Er, I should really make notes on this stuff at the time, shouldn’t I?), hence the bare feet. Either that, or it was it a really cold day, and I just didn’t GAF. You decide…
Confession: I actually ended up getting changed out of this outfit right after this photo was taken, because I realised it was just too windy outside (and inside, if this photo is to be believed!) for such a floaty skirt. I normally only realise this when I’m walking out the door and my skirt’s suddenly wrapped around my head, so I was quite proud of myself here, even although I didn’t actually get to wear the outfit.
This is what I wore instead, having had approximately two minutes to get changed. I think I was going for “sleek and elegant,” here (Although it could have been, “Crap, I need to get changed in a hurry, and I’ve absolutely no clue what to wear!”), but I was forgetting that the wind might not be able to blow my skirt around, but it COULD – and, indeed WOULD – still whip my hair into a tangled mess the second I set foot outside the house. And it did. Awesome.
Just to prove that all a brand needs to do to get me to buy something from them is release it in a polka dot print, here I am wearing Boden silk shirt, which is not remotely like the Boden classic shirt in polka dot, which I also own. And, er, also not anything like the blue version of the same shirt I’m wearing in this photo, which, well, gottta catch ’em all, right?
Speaking of everyday outfits, I’ve also been making an effort to post some of those over on Instagram lately: I HAD actually intended to start doing an outfit of the day, every day, there, but unfortunately the art of the mirror selfie is one that has always defeated me (Seriously, how do people do it? Teach me your ways!), so I haven’t quite managed it yet: there should hopefully be at least a few every week, though, for those days when you wake up feeling like you just can’t get through another second without knowing what I’m wearing. Yes.
