• 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, without knowing what I was doing and with very little knowledge of English grammar. It…

Peplum And Lace Oh, I’m so happy to see that my favorite outfit of the year made the cut. Although the photos could have been better 5 I feel like I always say that), I really loved the outfit itself. I’ve worn it repeatedly in Spring and Summer. I used one of the photos from this shoot as my profile picture on my personal and blog’s…

    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 walk down memory lane!

    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 house hold tonight. Trophy husband! The winter-y landscape outside does not match the outfit I want to share today at 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 from the week before. Hence why you’ve not seen this cardigan before! I came across this extra long cardigan…
