Light Check Blazer For Spring

Light Check Blazer For Spring

These photos might not show it well, but Spring has arrived! I’m fully enjoying the first signs of the new season. Daffodils are popping up everywhere, squirrels are running around our yard and doves are busy building nests in the trees surrounding our house. I love feeling the warmer breeze when I step outside in the morning and the scent freshly mowed lawns when I return home from work. Spring is heavenly! With the changing seasons also comes a change in my wardrobe. …

How To Style Cardigans in 2018

How To Style Cardigans in 2018

Oh, hello there! Long time no see, my friends! I’ve been travelling a lot the past few weeks and have taken a break from social media, so I haven’t been online very much. While I was away I rediscovered the wonderful world of Netflix and actually managed to do some chores around the house. Now that my mind has calmed down, I feel like it’s time to kick some life back into this blog. I’m starting back …

A Leftover From Last Fall

A Leftover From Last Fall

I recently bought a new computer and while I was transferring my files, I stumbled upon a series of outfit photos that I never found their way to the blog. The photos were taken during a lovely walk in K’s hometown last Fall. We both grew up on the countryside and moved to the city for our studies in our early twenties. We returned to our roots after graduation, but realized that we had sold our hearts to the city so we moved …

AD | Timeless Style with Amalys Watches

Confession: this was one of the most awkward shoots in my history as a fashion blogger. For reals. It’s been a long time since I felt so uncomfortable while being out and about doing, you know, “the blogger thing”. I had been wanting to shoot in front of this building for a while A) because it’s a true beauty and B) because they decorated the windows with pieces of gold foil for the Holidays and that just looked really …

Happy 9th Birthday to The Ginger Diaries!

Happy 9th Birthday to The Ginger Diaries!

Oh, hello 2018! You came a little faster than expected, haha. I hope you guys all had a lovely end of the year and happy Holidays! On January 1st The Ginger Diaries turned 9 years old. Nine years. If my blog was a child it’d be in 3rd grade now and could learn how to write itself! The more I think about that, the more weird I feel. Nine years. HOLY COW! I started this blog on a whim. Without a content plan, without goals,&…

2017 Outfit Recap

2017 Outfit Recap

Tired of annual recaps yet? Bad luck, because here’s mine! I started writing The Ginger Diaries on 01/01/2009. That makes this blog 8 years old. 8 years, wow. So, what did I wear during my 8th year as a fashion blogger? Well, lots of white apparently. And the same pair of sandals in almost  every single outfit post, haha. I also notice a very expensive pair of cobalt blue pants that I remember having again because of this blog post. Let’s take a …

The Perfect Silk Blouse

The Perfect Silk Blouse

How are you guys doing? I’m in a particularly jolly mood today. This afternoon we had a snowball fight at work and warmed up with a cup of coffee afterwards. I’m currently sat down in my new Primark PJs watching snowmageddon grown in force outside. Primark Pjs are the best. So it watching the snow… from behind a window and next to the central heating. Also, K is cooking dinner downstairs so I don’t have to contribute to …

The Coziest Cardigan of All

The Coziest Cardigan of All

There are still a few items in my wardrobe that I bought last year and never got to write blog posts about. Winter is my least favorite season and not being able to shoot much for the blog is one of the reasons why. It’s dark when I leave for work in the morning and it’s dark when I return home. It always seems to rain on the weekends too, making it difficult to go out and shoot my favorite looks …

Travelling In Style

Travelling In Style

Things are finally winding down in this household. I’m back to work without the foresight of vacation and I haven’t started prepping for the Holidays just yet. With a laid-back week ahead of me I found some time to edit a few of the outfits we’ve shot this Fall and I want to kick the series off with this travel look! If there’s one rule in travel dressing it surely must be “comfort above all”! …

Let’s Talk About My Blazer Obsession

Let’s Talk About My Blazer Obsession

Me and my blazers, it’s a never-ending love story. I have about ten. I think. Maybe more. And I wear them with love. This season I really wanted to join in on the Prince of Wales trend, but didn’t want to drop the cash for a large winter coat in the check print. I like the classic style, but I wasn’t sure if the trend was just another Instagram-one-day-wonder and would feel very “October 2017” soon. Instead I …

Shania Twain Would Be Proud

Shania Twain Would Be Proud

From a young age on I’ve loved crime series such as the overly suspenseful CSI Miami and the quintessential British show Midsomer Murders. On Netflix, I devoured the first two seasons of How To Get Away With Murder (which may or may not have had something to do with Jack Falahee) and watched pretty much all crime documentaries within a few weeks after signing up. I know, I’m weird. Since I’m still waiting for Netflix to release S3 of …
