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...

And then she fled in the path of a lightning bolt

After being so ‘on the ball’ the last week or so, my blogging this weeks seems to have taken a slight back seat. With finishing another work experience placement (which, for those asking was amazing thanks) to last minute stresses about mine and Joe’s trip to Paris tomorrow, everything became a little much and I didn’t have enough hours in the day to force my awkward poses unto your dashboards.

However! I’m back, for now. I train off to France tomorrow, so blogging, tweeting and replying to emails will be a little sparse, but I will try to assure you there will be a huge compensation upon my return! Maybe even a give away… we shall see! Anyway, this is what I wore yesterday. I was lucky enough to come home on Friday evening to discover a beautiful box from my favourite Olive clothing, with this dress being one of the surprises inside, and I can easily say it’s quickly become one of my faves. With it’s boxy, yet girlie shape and subtle, neutral colour and print it’s possibly one of the easiest things I have to style and wear; and looks amazing with cute plimsolls too (plus is foolproof for British weather- score!)

Additionally, you may or may not have seen on my Instagram that after much umming and ahhing I have upgraded my camera! Still keeping my dear Nikon D40 close by, I decided to invest in a Canon 550d- and hopefully it will provide some gorgeous images for this blog, and even some videos- hurrah!

Last but not least (this post has been quite a mouthful hasn’t it?) I’m also starting to take ads for August, so email or tweet me if you’d be interested! (whatoliviadid@hotmail.co.uk & @livpurvis). I hope you’re all enjoying this beautiful sunshine and have a lovely Sunday!
