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...

I love Paris in the rain

For once, this Sunday I was up, dressed and fed long before midday. With the sun peeping out (if only a little and few and far between heavy showers) I picked out one of my current favourite dresses, added a beehive (perfect for temperamental weather)and hit the road with my grandparents and boyfriend to a gorgeous manor house and gardens, a little drive away from home. Pashley manor lies within the border of Sussex and Kent, with a gorgeous manor house, surrounded amongst an ocean of roses, waters and green- come each Spring it certainly makes for a visual treat. With an array of gorgeous wildlife, a delicious tea room and even a swimming pool (which I may have cheekily dipped my toes into) Pashley manor house and gardens certainly makes for a beautiful Sunday afternoon visit, and even brings back nostalgic memories of one of my favourite childhood books (and films), The Secret Garden.

Additionally I wore one of my favourite new dresses, which was a birthday present from Joe- boy did good! I spotted it earlier this month on the Monki website, and put it on my birthday wishlist, so I’m super lucky to have received it. I absolutely love it’s slightly boxy shape (ironically, I find this the most flattering on me) and girlie sleeves, plus the heart and letter print is super cute! It’s one of the easiest things to wear, goes with everything, and slightly reminds me of something a certain Alexa may own- perfect!
