From The Archive: 2013

With magazine placements on the side, 2013 was the last year I juggled blogging as a side gig. Things get a bit girlier in the style department too, with a lorra love for the sixties and a 'hive!


I just wanna be a fool and get lovesick with you


(I’m wearing the Tartan Summer Liddesdale Quilt Jacket & Mollard Polo with a Topshop skirt, Vintage bag and Charlotte Olympia kitty flats)

When I was invited for a day out with Barbour to help launch their beautiful new Dress Tartan campaign, I couldn’t say no. With the promise of exploring my beautiful home town (something I rarely take advantage of), meeting my best friend for an explore around Borough market and a pit stop of chocolate brownies, sugary tea and flower buying and picking up some new records at my favourite record shop, Rough Trade- it was the perfect way to spend a chilly wintry afternoon.


Despite the continuous chilly breeze and on and off showers that were persistent throughout the day (surprise surprise), I managed to stay pretty cosy in this Liddesdale jacket and wool scarf (and a hot cup of tea, of course)- and tried to balance the traditional check print with a basic skater skirt and messy (and windswept) beehive- in order to unleash my inner wannabe-mod-girl (I’ll let you judge with how I did…) It’s a wonderfully versatile jacket, and teamed with turned up skinnies, crisp white shirt and my cat eye sunnies- I’m sure it will come in extra handy when April showers make an appearance.

Barbour have also launched a competition to win a dress tartan outfit for your own, by heading here you can have a look at how all of the other lovely ladies (some bloggers I am sure you’ll be more than familiar with by now) styled their pieces on their day out- and also see what else I got up to here.

Additionally, the lovely guys at Shuffle also made a little film to accompany these pictures, so consider it my first steps on to Youtube done (along with some eating and exploring in too)! (If you appreciate silly waves, you’ll love the end too!)
