Favourite Outfits: December

December was a strange, strange month. So busy, as Decembers usually are, and a whirlwind of emotions for me. Does anyone else feel like they’re in a bit of a rut this month? I’m struggling to get going after Christmas! Taking photos of my outfits went to the wayside a little, but these were myContinue reading “Favourite Outfits: December”

Favourite Outfits: November

I post my outfits in my mirror like its 2008 on my instagram account, called The Maple Armoire, but I defintely have a few favourites from each month. These are my favourites from November.  Cozy cardigans, stripes and looking like a cliche cartoon French person!

Refining My Wardrobe

These jeans. THESE JEANS! They were such a faff to get my hands on! I left it a little late waiting for the M.i.h sale, so I bought them in the size up that I’d usually go for as that was all they had left. I’d never bought anything from them before, so I hadContinue reading “Refining My Wardrobe”

Phthalo Blue Birthday

I turned 27 yesterday. I had been quietly freaking out about it for a little while now; feeling like I hadn’t “succeeded” in anything in particular, my blog and illustration work never taking off, getting closer to 30, feeling like maybe I’ve just not tried hard enough, work always getting the better of me. JustContinue reading “Phthalo Blue Birthday”

Draw My Duds: Stripy Everything

The amount of stripy tops in my wardrobe is obscene. This is the latest one, from & Other Stories. Which I have in a darker colour-way too, oops. I’ve been wearing a lot of dark colours lately, so decided to mix it up and wear two of the lightest coloured things I own – IContinue reading “Draw My Duds: Stripy Everything”

Draw My Duds: Grey Trousers

Okay I’m probably going to change the name of this series because I don’t like the word “duds”, but for now that was the catchiest thing I could come up with! I’m so bad at coming up with names for things… Anyway; I have been meaning to draw my outfits and include them in blogContinue reading “Draw My Duds: Grey Trousers”

1940s Style Workwear

Finally! A pair of 1940s style jeans that arent over-styled and too-long legged! I haven’t enjoyed wearing skinny jeans for a looong time now but haven’t been able to find a pair of semi smart looser fitting ones, vintage or otherwise. Until I came across these on Asos. I’m not usually one for spur ofContinue reading “1940s Style Workwear”

An Old Favourite

How has this skirt never made it on here? It was the first item of clothing that I bought when I moved to Cambridge, which was September 2012 (Wow.). So its officially 4 years old! I’ve worn it to death and its looking a little worse for wear now, but it’s just one of thoseContinue reading “An Old Favourite”
