20.05.2020- What I Wore Today #415

Wednesday, 20 May 2020

Here we are again! Another week down and everything is sort of merging into one, but here we are! I've settled into a bit more of a routine with things now, and am getting a couple of solid mornings of writing in a week now, which I'm really enjoying, and I'm also really loving being able to spend some time in the garden too. Looking back, it feels like a lifetime ago that I was able to be out and about snapping photos like these, but as I've been noting in previous posts, it's lovely to have a little archive to look back on from life pre-lockdown:

Jumper- Marks and Spencer
Shirt- Urban Outfitters 
Necklace- CatBird NYC 
Trousers- lululemon 

As much as it's weird to look back on a time where I was required to wear more than leggings and a sweatshirt (those were the days!), it's actually really lovely to be reminded of why clothes can be so special too. This jumper was a purchase which I made at the start of the year after spotting it in M&S on the King's Road- a trip I made with my mum after a visit to the V&A for their brilliant Tim Walker exhibition and a cheeky stop in Pret for lunch. Little things like this I so took for granted at the time, but more than that I think it's important to be reminded of life as it was too- there's so much which will inevitably have to change after this, but I hope that we'll still be able to get back to little weekend outings like this as soon as we can do so safely. Additionally (and this might sound very weird!), I'm also appreciating pieces in my wardrobe in a completely different way at the moment- not so much for how they look or the way that they fit, but for the memories which they hold. As I type this, I'm looking at some dresses hanging up on the other side of my room- one which I wore out and about for a friend's birthday meal, and another which I wore on my last brunch date in London before lockdown. These fragments might feel far away now, but again I'm really pleased to be able to look back on these days with a smile. 

Which wardrobe pieces hold special memories for you?
