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...


With a little girl and by my spouse, I only want a proper house

Admittedly, this is a little dressier than my normal outfit posts. It’s not often I’m seen galavanting around central London wearing a pink prom dress and a beehive (as much as I fancy myself as 2012’s answer to Audrey Hepburn, somehow I don’t think that’ll happen…) but a certain afternoon tea requires a certain special dress, right?

On Sunday I was lucky enough to continue birthday celebrations, and joined some of my closest family in a truly British afternoon tea, at The Goring Hotel, which being one of the Queen Mother’s favourite places for tea as well as the place Kate stayed before the Royal Wedding, certainly deserved a little dressing up. Now, if you’ve been reading my blog long enough (or in the last week or so…) you will know I LOVE cream tea. I will go out of my way to pick up some Sainsbury’s Scones for lunch, and trust me, my fridge is never without a jar of Hartley’s jam, so as you can imagine- this was a treat and a half. We gobbled on so many finger sandwiches, scones and some of the tastiest tarts I’ve ever tasted (alliteration at it’s finest there!) followed by, what I can only assume was a good 7+ cups of tea (these pictures make me feel full just looking at them…) Additionally, the interior was a dream, making me feel (slightly) like a Middleton myself!

Have you had any lovely afternoon tea recently? You know I love ANY suggestions!
