The May Outfits Series – Part 1

Hello – I’ve had the rather ambitious idea to capture all of my outfits throughout the month of May. Yep, every single one – wish me luck. Expect selfies in my bathroom, ‘portraits’ taken with my tripod (my Emily in Paris post is a fine example of these kinds of pictures) and a few street pics with a little help and harassment from and to my friends. This past week, I got lucky – I had a friend staying with me who kindly agreed to be my picture taker. Anyway – let’s jump right in…

Sunday (01/05/2022): H&M blazer and jumper / Primark shorts / House of Holland bag / Vans shoes

I bought this blazer the day on the 30th of April – and for me it’s always a good sign when you wear something the very next day (or even the same day). I mean, did I need another pink blazer in my life? Yes, yes I did.

Monday (02/05/2022): ASOS dress / Primark headband / Polene bag / Hobbs shoes

Hello bank holiday, hello wisteria and hello little black dress that I’d had my eye on since last spring. Yes, I waited one whole year to buy this dress because it was just a little too expensive for my likings. 100% worth the wait.

Tuesday (03/05/2022): Stradivarius jacket and skirtH&M top / Lulu Guinness bag / Hobbs shoes

Believe me when I say I was excited to bring out this Elle Woods outfit (first seen here) again this spring. But please forgive her – the poor thing was a little creased towards the end of the day.

Wednesday (04/05/2022): Warehouse jacket / Missguided dress / Lulu Guinness bag / Hobbs shoes

I’m a little regretful that I didn’t show off my new Missguided dress in this picture properly (and that my tired working from home vibe and neglected hair crumpled the cuteness of this outfit), but that’s OK – I’ve got the whole month ahead of me for that. So, stay tuned – or have a look at my Instagram, where this dress has indeed been captured in all its glory.

Thursday (05/05/2022): Zara jacket, top and skorts / Lulu Guinness bag / Hobbs shoes

Not much I can say about this coord, other than it’s new, I’m in love and can’t wait to wear it again.

Friday (05/05/2022): Missguided dress / Mango bag / Vans shoes

This is a pretty fancy working from home outfit (which included an errand and picture-taking run), but hey, I might as well go all out for this month. Having said that, this dress is super comfortable to work in. I’ve had it for years (I remember sharing it here) and luckily still absolutely adore it, it’s such an easy throw-on outfit that I feel instantly good in.

Saturday (07/05/2022): Zara blazer and shorts / & Other Stories knit / Polene bag / Jeffrey Campbell shoes

Can you tell I am OBSESSED with coords and suits, and basically any coord that Zara brings out? They just make me feel so put together.

Sunday (08/05/2022): H&M shirt / Zara top / Primark skirt and bag / Stradivarius shoes

This outfit is, for what was a pretty chilled Sunday, together with the pink Zara coord, my favourite outfit of the week. It was a vision I had in my head that thankfully turned out exactly the way I wanted – and who can resist a splash of hot pink and vibrant green? Also, I’m now That Girl that wears shirts as outerwear – a look that I once rolled my eyes at is now my thing. Fickle, to say the least.

So that’s the first batch of May outfits for y’all – it’ll be interesting to see if I actually manage to get a picture every day. Also, as much as I enjoy outfit recording, I do of course plan on doing other kinds of posts – if not this month, definitely next month. But, for now, enjoy my spring-but-heading-to-summer looks!
