Girl Next Door Fashion is a year old on 22nd December, so over the next few weeks I'm going to be looking back over my favourite outfits and posts from the last year.
Over the past few months I have gained a lot of followers. A lot. When you consider the fact that up until a few months ago I only got maybe 150-200 views and day, getting 600-700 a day now is a big deal. My blog still has a long way to go, but I'm really happy with my progression over the past few months.
So I've decided to look back over the past few months and show you some of my favourite outfits from the past year. It was really fun going through all my posts and choosing my favourite outfits. They often weren't the ones I expected to pick. There was no real theory involved- just the outfits, and the photographs that were my favourite.
I've put them into groups as some months there are more favourites than others, so over the next few weeks I will be going through five different categories- January-March (I didn't take any outfit pictures in December), April, May-August, September, October and November. I hope to be able to see how my style has evolved and show you all how far I've come!!
I'd love to hear which outfits are your favourite from the past year and which styles you like best.
First up- my first real outfit post...
6th January 2010
I posted this outfit purely because it was my first, and I remember this shoot well- running round the garden and getting my Dad to take pictures of me!! I tried to do waaaay too much with this outfit- I wanted to have fun mixing patterns but I think I kinda missed the boat... Still, my first outfit shoot. Hey, I started the year in snow and I'll probably end the year in snow!!
7th January 2010
Wow, look how long my hair is here!!
Experimenting with the ol' photo-in-the-mirror. I actually really love this outfit. I can't remember if I actually wore it outside though. I love these sparkly shorts and this blazer. One of my favourite looks- even though I hadn't mastered the outfit post yet.
19th January 2010
This is definitely one of my favourite from my first few months of blogging. My best friend Ellen took these photos and they just looked SO good. I absolutely adore this coat- I'm wearing it today!!
20th January 2010
Looking back now, this outfit is awful. I hate the wide belt with that skirt, but I decided initially to get the skirt in a smaller size to wear it high waisted, and then realised it was far too short to be highwaisted, but too small to go over my hips- hence the big belt!! I love the concept of this shoot though- I love those ears!! I just didn't orchestrate it quite right!!
21st March 2010
Wow, this shoot feels like yesterday!! I absolutely loved this outfit then and still do now. My mum bought this dress for herself but it wasn't right so she gave it to me. It's really long though so I decided to try it with this skirt. A simple idea but it really worked.
23rd March 2010
Still struggling with outfit posts here- resorting to the mirror once again!! I do like this outfit though- plus I'd forgotten I had pictures of me in my glasses!! I think I'm starting to find my feet with style a little bit here, and having some fun along the way.
Wow, it's so strange to look back over how my style has evolved over the past few months. I'm really having fun with this mini-series though.
I hope you're enjoying it- I know it's a little self-indulgent, but I know I love it when bloggers look back over their past outfits like this.
Next time- outfits from April 2010.
