MY FAVOURITE OOTD POSTS

September 15, 2016

I recently had to search through my back catalog of blogs. It was a lovely trip down memory lane and I enjoyed reminiscing about each post, what I was doing at the time and how things have changed since then. Being able to look back in this way is a wonderful perk of having a blog.

Here are some of my favourite OOTD posts since the inception of LedByLucy and the reasons why.

LedByLucy-Chester-England (14)Chester: Stopping To Smell The Roses This post and pictures remind me of deciding to make a huge leap of faith and move from the UK to Germany. It was a really exciting but also uncertain time as we didn’t know what to expect. Our lives changed a lot after this.LedByLucy-Poppy-ASOS-image6Poppy Print Outfit Of The Day Taken outside of Hotspur Press in Manchester, a pretty grubby industrial building which is steeped in history and charming in it’s own way. And yeah, I like the dress!

OOTD With My Sister I pass this spot regularly and this image of my sister and I laughing together pops up in my mind every time. I actually have this picture framed in my spare room. We both live so far away from each other now that moments like this together are very precious.LedByLucy-Nhow-Berlin-BloggerNhow Berlin Review: A Sunny Lunch Date This is Berlin at its finest, with the sun shining! The Spree (the river in the background) is a landmark in Berlin that I love. If and when we ever decide to move away from Berlin, I know I will look back on photos like this and think of the good times.LedByLucy-January-Treats-image5LedByLucy-January-Treats-image6French Connection and Faux Fur The first post using my “proper” camera. Up until this point I had been admiring other people’s blogs and occasionally creating my own posts using an i-phone. It was a pricey purchase but totally worth it, it makes the blog in my opinion. LedByLucy-Blog-Engagement-Dress-White-Bocci-BerlinEngagement Party Dress: Wearing White Wearing White Both the twinkling lights at Bocci and the fact that I am wearing my engagement party dress make this a favourite post. Maybe one day when I’m older and we have children they might ask about our engagement and I can show them these pictures.

YOUR FAVOURITE POSTS OF 2015

January 11, 2016

LedByLucy-Adventure -Berlin (7)In 2015 blogging took on a whole new meaning for me. Throughout the year I began spending more and more time nurturing and tinkering away on LedByLucy. And like any craft, the more focus and attention I was able to give my blog, the more I began to learn and the more rewarding it became.

Whilst writing this post I also took a moment to reminisce on some of my blogging achivements, because life moves so quickly and we are often racing towards a deadline or wondering if the work we are doing is good enough. Sometimes I think it’s important to just pause for a moment and see how far we have come, and to be kind to ourselves.

So here are your favourite posts of 2015:
