Today it is six months since I set out on my quest for a functional wardrobe! I can honestly say it has turned out better than I had hoped – I definitely find it SO much easier to put together outfits these days. I no longer feel like I have nothing to wear, but I’m not going to stop just yet as I think there’s still plenty more for me to learn and try.
Looking over February, or FABruary, there were a lot of outfits I really enjoyed wearing. As always with style dares, I was pushed to try a few new things and there were definitely some risks that paid off for me!
|I do try to judge outfits based on outfit merit rather things like nice lighting, a flattering angle or a good hair day. But honestly, sometimes these other things do play a part in my decisions. For example this outfit was my favourite for the month, and while I do like it a lot I doubt it would have landed right at the top if I hadn’t spent all that time straightening my hair ;)|
|This is one of those outfits I can’t quite settle on – do I completely love it, or did I go a little too far this time? Even so, I think it’s worthy of celebration for the beautiful colours and the utter bravery required from me to wear it to church on a Sunday where I would be seen by so many people!|
|This is the other end of the scale for me in terms of bravery – it is exactly an outfit I have worn many times before. But I still love it. It’s not one that I get compliments on, so possibly it’s not to the taste of many other people, but I feel just a little bit fabulous in this dress.|
|It really took me by surprise that this outfit ended up near the top of my “yes” pile, but I love how I’ve finally found a place for shorts in my repertoire. They are, after all, highly practical for running around after little kids.|
|This is essentially an outfit I’ve worn previously, but I wasn’t completely happy with it last time. It really needed a belt, and this time around I love how it turned out.|

And that was February 2013, I can’t believe that summer is over!
