October this year wasn’t my best month. Most years I really look forward to this month since there are so many great things happening: fall is on its best, my birthday, hubby’s birthday and of course halloween. But this year October wasn’t as great as I hoped it would be… it was filled with loads of setbacks at work which really got to me. These past weeks I mainly felt exhausted and stressed out. This having a serious impact on my creativity in my outfits and blog of course. I hoped to give you guys some amazing content with our trip to Marrakech, but we dealt we some bad weather so I wasn’t able to shoot outfit pictures the way I had in mind. Now, no pitty needed because things always turn around and I have a feeling November and December will be much better months!
My main goal was to minimize the amount of pieces I only wore once. I succeeded in this, last month there were 27 items I only wore once and this month I reduced it to 16 items, which is great. Again, I’m on a total count of 62 items, the exact same as last month.
Items worn: 62
New items in: 11
Amount of times worn:
Octobers most worn:
- Everlane tote bag
- Black scarf
- Black coat
- Studded boots
- Dear Frances Spirit boots
- Black skinny jeans
- Hunter rain boots
- Gucci bag
- White sneakers
- Black turtleneck sweater
This was one busy week filled with loads of work at my day job. Luckily the weather was great and I got a lot of wear out of my leopard skirt and Dear Frances Spirit boots (didn’t want to wear them in the rain).
This wasn’t my best week at all so I really felt the need to get more cosy by wearing some knitwear. At the end of the week it started to cool down a bit, so I threw on my favorite black coat.
The temperatures got up again, rising to sometimes summer heat (22°C) so I had to get out some of my summer pieces like my Alohas sandals. Actually, I kind of think I overdressed for this week.
Okay, this week it FINALLY got colder to a max of 15°C and I finally got the wear out of my fall items like my camel coat and ‘new’ Cordings blazer which I found at our local thrift store for only € 7! This week was also my birthday, so I did wear another outfit featuring my new floral blouse with a leather skirt and my Dear Frances boots. Don’t know why I didn’t take a picture of that one… After this week we went our trip to Marrakech where I didn’t get to shoot the outfit pictures I wanted and I didn’t have a large mirror to take outfit selfies. But mainly I wore a black denim, black turtleneck and a black coat.
Overall, I think my style came more together this month, focussing on black again. I’m actually kind of jealous on people/bloggers who really have ‘their style’. I kind of feel like my style is all over the place. One day I’ll be loving a more edgy vibe and the next I want to feel more feminine. I kind of hoped documenting all my outfits would give a better view on my personal style, but until now I still feel the same about it. I do feel I’m shifting towards a more feminine style overall, wearing more skirts and dresses than I ever did. I’m really happy I got so much wear out of my leopard skirt. This certainly is a trend piece, so I’m planning on getting the most of it for the weeks to come.
Next months’ mission
Again I want to focus on getting those one-wear-pieces down and I want to find a way to wear more blue denim. I really love my black denim, but I sometimes feel it’s always the same and is getting a bit boring and safe. So experimenting with all the jeans I already have, is my main mission for the coming month.
