2014 In Fourteen Outfits

Tuesday, December 30

I really enjoyed doing these 'year review' style posts last year so this year I've chosen my 14 favourite outfits out of 43 during 2014. I think it is a great way to look back at what I've been up to this year. I wanted to pick an outfit for each month but during july and august there was just a few that I felt I couldn't miss out.

My outfit posts have improved hugely during 2014 - you can see what they were like in 2013 here. All the pictures in this post were taken with my Nikon D40 SLR camera which I got in January. It has really upped the quality of my picture and now I do my best not to take any pictures indoors because they just look so much better. Another thing that strikes me is a lot of these photos were taken days I was going to spend time with Scott - maybe that is why they have such good memories. 

Winter Florals For A Winters Day | Dressed Up In Maroon, Knitwear and a Patterned Frock | Peach Knitwear For My Birthday Meal
January, February and March's outfit are all quite cosy as it was still winter. Looking back I really really like the winter florals outfit - I'm struck by how young I look just a year ago. The 2nd look was worn for my first date with Scott and the third when he came out for my family birthday meal. The pink waffle knit jumper was also the first item I received from a company for review which was one of my biggest ambitions for G is for Gingers in 2014.

Blue and Green Spring Florals | Oranges and Peach for Summer Festivals | Cream Daisy Embroidery Vest on a Sunny Day
Finally in April as the weather gets warmed my outfit pictures move outside. I tried to make full use of the sunshine and colour in the garden for my photographs. My pastey white skin is back on show which I'm not a fan of - I'm always going to be more a fan of autumn layering.

Botanic Gardens and Honey Bees | My Primark Jumpsuit and the Commonwealth Games Rugby 7s
July and August were busy months with Scott and I doing loads of activities. This Bee print dress was one of my favourite purchases of the year - as was this primark jumpsuit I wore to the commonwealth games.

Floral Tea Dress and Red Heels | My H! by Henry Holland Tea Dress and New Fedora | Mini Golf and Other Adventures in My Pinafore
In August I collaborated with diva dames who sent me this gorgeous tea dress which has quickly become my go to dress. It is Scott's favourite too so I've worn it on many date nights (he would have me wear it every time!?). The Henry Holland dress was a bargain from my local cancer research shop and the final outfit in September was taken by Scott while we played crazy golf. Don't know why I like this one so much but there is just something about it.

'That' Tartan Blanket Scarf | Bringing Out The Winter Knitwear | My Hogmanay Little Black Dress
After moving to Aberdeen in September my outfit posts became few and far between... something that still makes me sad! I finally got my hands on a tartan blanket scarf which is still a firm favourite in my wardrobe. The final outfit I've not actually worn out yet but will be what I'm wearing when 2014 officially ends and a fitting way to end this post.

I'd love to know which out of these fourteen outfits is your favourite?

  6. I think my favourite of these is the purple floral tea dress, because dark purple is my favourite and it's so hard to find clothes that colour!
    P.s. Happy New Year! Hope you had a great Christmas too :) x

  7. You have such gorgeous style - I love that you're not afraid to mix it up and try different patterns and styles. I think you look beautiful in the yellow bee print dress - yellow is a colour I'm always afraid to wear, but you pull it off so well. I also think your hair makes any outfit with burgundy or red look amazing!



Would love to know what you think about the post! I read every single one but if you have a question tweet me @gisforgingers. P.s. Comments make my day...
