I have a folder on my computer from 2012 called “Outfits” containing a few dozen mirror selfie pictures chronicling outfits I wore and loved throughout my last year of college. Much like when I come across recipe printouts from the year when I started cooking or scroll through photos of places I used to live, this folder feels like a bit of a time capsule. That’s the inspiration behind these new monthly outfit diary posts. I hope that they will feel the same way, while also giving you a peek into what I wear on a day-to-day basis. Don’t expect anything groundbreaking here, ha! I essentially wear a capsule wardrobe of pieces that fit my current stage of life (seven months postpartum, nursing, mostly being at home with the exceptions of school pick-ups/drop-offs, church, and errands), but I know many of y’all are in similar places and seasons. Most of all, I hope that these posts may provide an idea or two for new ways to wear pieces you own and love!
I linked items when I could, but for the pieces that are out of stock (in some cases, loooong out of stock…the beige cardigan I wore twice is a Mango favorite from 2009!), I tried to find an item with a comparable look and price point.
If you have questions about any of these pieces or would find any specific details helpful in future Outfit Diary posts (sizing, occasions, beauty items, etc.), let me know–I’m all ears and eager for your input!
