From The Archive: 2012

A year of fewer questionable outfit choices, I finally found my blogging groove in 2012, and here you can find some favourite pieces, band interviews as they first appeared and a lot of hats too...

Style

We’ve got the ocean, got the babes, got the sun, we’ve got the waves

The first time I spotted similar trousers to these was at my first ever fashion week earlier this year. At House of Holland’s show I managed to get a cheeky peek of a certain Miss Chung sporting the infamous J.W Anderson paisley pyjama trousers. Since then I’ve spotted similar styles from Stella McCartney, Jil Sander, and my pick of the crop- ASOS (the budget was slightly more manageable!) Although when sported on the great British high street there is a tiny tendency for them to be mistaken for bed wear (or jim jams if you like) I am absolutely in love with them, and pretty tempted to invest in the shorts and jacket too. Additionally, they’re pretty darn easy to style. Teamed with a shirt and jumper, although it may resemble Madeline or a young school child, certainly makes for a neat and prim look, giving a bit of leeway for accessorising and fun beachy shoes.

This brings me nicely on to the newest addition of my bag collection, my baby Cambridge Satchel (giving my Mulberry a well earned rest from my mass of ‘stuff’). Having my eye on the satchels for a while, and after seeing it on Tennessee Thomas and Zooey Deschanel (swoon) I fell a little bit head over heels for their timeless style, meaning you can only image how happy I was when the lovely Clare at Mybag contacted me! So far I’ve managed to style it with, well…everything- so expect it in some more posts soon, and if you can’t wait until then (hoho) pay a visit to the website for some bag candy (a phrase I will rarely use!)

Last but certainly not least, I have some amazing new sponsors living on my sidebar for May, so please pay a visit at these lovely blogs and shops. They put a huge amount of effort in their blogs, so deserve all the recognition they can get. Welcome aboard ladies!
