(2012) My Year in Outfits

It's the end of 2012 and I thought that rather than make short-lived resolutions involving the "e" word, I would look back at my year and see how my style has developed. And looking at this montage I've put together, there are definitely some trends emerging!

A year in outfits - 2012

This was the year I discovered my hair style of choice - the top knot. I think I look a lot older now in comparison to earlier this year too? My style is certainly more refined, but I put that down to my change of occupation and not being able to wear converses every day to work. Boooo.

Which is your favourite of my months? I think March or October has to be mine!

Most of all, 2012 has helped me grow in confidence. Without wanting to put a massive dampener on the last post of the year, 12 months ago or so was more or less the lowest I'd ever been. I was having regular panic attacks and there were times, ridiculous as it sounds now, that I wouldn't get out of bed.

Stuff is really good right now, I guess it's the best way to end the year on a high. My relationships with friends, family and of course, my delectable other half, are better than ever. I've got my first graduate job (shit - I graduated at all) and I've got so many exciting things to look forward to next year, including a trip to Paris in February!

Happy New Year everyone who stumbles across this blog. I hope you've had a fantastic year, please share your 2012 reviews with me in a comment below!

  5. October would have to be my favourite too! This is a really great idea.
    I'm sorry to hear you had panic attacks but I'm glad you included it. I used to get anxiety attacks and still have them from time to time but it makes me feel better when other people talk about going through similar stuff.
    I hope your 2013 will be all kinds of awesome :)

  23. Omygosh this is so cute! :D I love all the outfits. I should try this but I'm too lazy to go through all the picking haha but again, great outfits. (: My favorite is December because I'm just a sucker for camouflage and peterpan collars.

    TAKE ME WITH YOU TO PARIS :D lolol
