WhatLauraWore: The 2013 Round Up Part 1

For me, 2013 was a year of truly great outfits.  I experimented with different styles and discovered new brands.  To kick off the new year I wanted to recap my outfits from the last 12 months and so I have created this 2013 Round Up post and let me tell you, its going to be a long one… so long that I’m going to split it into two halves.  This post is part 1, featuring all of the looks I put together for the first half of the year and later today I’ll be posting the outfits from the latter half.

WhatLauraWore: Big Heart
If I remember correctly, this was my first time wearing my new Guess handbag out.  Such a brilliant clutch as it fits SO much into it!

WhatLauraWore: All In Black
Ax Paris t shirts really made my year, they’re oversized and so comfortable to wear.

WhatLauraWore: Morning After the Night Before

This was my favourite jumper of the winter, so snuggly and cute.

WhatLauraWore: Shopping my Wardrobe

I loved this outfit as it used a top I hadn’t worn in ages!

WhatLauraWore: Winter Wonderland
Another AX Paris jumper paired with UGG accessories. Love.

WhatLauraWore: Fashion Geek
This geek jumper went down a storm with lots of my readers as it was one of the first clothing items around in plus size with Geek on.

WhatLauraWore: Aztec Print for the Pub Quiz
I have had these boots for years… ever since I went to Edinburgh dressed as a pirate.

WhatLauraWore: How to ‘Werk’ the Blazer
Can’t go wrong with an Evans suit in my opinion, if you’re looking for something affordable for the odd occasion wear.

WhatLauraWore: Cosy in Curvissa
Such a cosy cardigan. Unfortunately its too big now but I’m so pleased that I was able to pass this on to someone else for them to enjoy wearing as much as I did.

WhatLauraWore: Happy Valentines Day
Looking back this dress seems more Halloween rock chick than Valentines Siren but I loved wearing it all the same as its so different to anyone else in my wardrobe!

WhatLauraWore: A Loada Leopard Print
One of my favourite prints.

WhatLauraWore: Couture is Bliss
Once again, flats, leggings and a cosy jumper are rocking my world here.

WhatLauraWore: A Zebra Never Changes Her Stripes
I love pairing indigo denim with light colours and I seemed to do that a lot this year.

WhatLauraWore: The Pussy Bow Blouse
I loved wearing pussy bow blouses this year and really must buy more for work this year.

WhatLauraWore: Pastel Blazer
I loved this apricot blazer that much I went out and bought the mint version too!

WhatLauraWore: Kick Out Lace Dress
This dress is super, super short which is a shame as I have to wear leggings with it… aside from this night when I went to a Tarts and Vicars style party

WhatLauraWore: Bunny Love

I wore this bunny jumper to death, so cute and girly, it was a great addition to my casual, daytime wardrobe.

WhatLauraWore: Navy and Tan Times
Navy and Tan have been my go to colour combination this year. Absolute love.

WhatLauraWore: Fair Isle-ing Into Spring
It was great to get this Jane Norman bag out of my stash and it made a fabulous pop of colour that really brought out the blue in my outfit.

WhatLauraWore: Bluebell
This has to be one of my favourite looks of the year- such a cute dress.

WhatLauraWore: Loving Lace
I adore this shot.  The outfit is so sweet and a quite a change from my usual attire.

WhatLauraWore: Dannii Minogue Heart Your Heart Out
It made my day when Dannii Minogue tweeted me about this outfit.

WhatLauraWore: Easy Work Wear
This looks like a pretty boring outfit amongst these lovely dresses but this has been a jacket that I’ve worn so often for work this year.

WhatLauraWore: My Favourite Dress
This dress caused a bit of a kerfuffle for me over on the Simply Be Facebook Page with all of those computer coward trolls but I loved it and so many of you did too.

WhatLauraWore: Feeling a Little Green
This is easily one of my favourite dresses of the year, purely because of the shade of green.
WhatLauraWore: Sparkles in the Country
This outfit brings back such good memories of an Easter break with Mr WLL.
WhatLauraWore: A Touch of Silver Sparkle
I’ve adored wearing silver this year and after my Mikey haul, silver accessories are going to feature a lot in my outfit posts for 2014.
WhatLauraWore: Horse Play
Perhaps my most bold top of the year!

WhatLauraWore: Show Stopping Coral
This dress shape has become a staple in my wardrobe this year.
WhatLauraWore: #NorthMeetUp
Quite a simple outfit that I wore for the #NorthMeetUp which was my favourite blogger organised meet up of the year as I made lots of new friends, SO good that I hope that there’s one next year too.
WhatLauraWore: Ditzy Print and Studs All Round!
The ditzy print dress I’m wearing here is the first item I ever tried from Curve Clothing and I was honoured to be asked to open their store later in the summer.
WhatLauraWore: Stepping Into Spring
White and florals make me smile in the springtime.

WhatLauraWore: Graffiti Artist
A dress that does a complete 360 on my usual style!
WhatLauraWore: Dabbling with Desire
I just couldn’t get enough of this dress during the spring and summer.
WhatLauraWore: Springtime Casual
The top I’m wearing here proved to be one of my most worn this year- it adds a gorgeous pop of colour to any all white or all black outfit.
WhatLauraWore: Turquoise Darling
This dress makes a perfect ladies day at the races outfit and the colour is to die for.

WhatLauraWore: Throwing on a Jean Jacket
Its rare I feature a dress twice on my blog but this one was just so wearable.
WhatLauraWore: Champagne Nights
Another of my favourite dresses this year.
WhatLauraWore: Travelling in Tribal
Navy really struck a chord with me this year, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it as an alternative to black.
WhatLauraWore: Bright Work Wear
This shows another way that I wore the bright vest top. I really love this look.

I can’t believe how many outfits are here and I can honestly say I’ve loved wearing them all.  Check back tomorrow for the second instalment.
