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...

Lifestyle Style

Wouldn’t it be dreadful to live in a country where they didn’t drink tea?

Happy Jubilee! I found this quote by Noel Coward whilst browsing You Know You’re British When and I’m pretty sure it sums up the way many people have spent this Jubilee weekend (and also a very true statement – I’ve probably had one too many cups today!) Anyway, as mentioned in yesterday’s post, I couldn’t resist getting into the regal spirit by adorning my favourite Queen colour shades, in something I’d like to think wouldn’t look out of place in the Duchess of Cambridge’s wardrobe- and what can I say, it certainly makes a difference from my usual trouser combinations (I even hear Kate has this Whistles skirt in pale blue!) I felt incredibly ladylike in this ballerina-come-Carrie Bradshaw skirt and loose Nelly fluffy jumper, especially with these matching Next shoes- so as you can imagine, serious skirt swooshing was in order.

Additionally, the skirt and jumper made for the perfect lazy afternoon outfit, especially after the truly British feast I had this lunchtime at my nan’s house! With fresh sponge, finger sandwiches, cream tea and scones- I’m certainly feeling a little full writing this and looking at the photographs!

How are you (if in the U.K) celebrating this Diamond Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend? I’m off to watch the rest of the BBC Concert!
