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!

Style

Don’t let the sun blast your shadow

There’s a certain cool aesthetic I associate with Free People; one I’ve often unintentionally overlooked- but often lusted over when browsing the gorgeous blogs of the Suarez sisters. It was only until recently that I properly sat down and had a look- which later led to hours of scrolling that I realized how beautifully crafted and retro inspired their pieces really are. Whether you’re dreaming of looking as if you’ve been drifting along the Coachella skyline (come on- who doesn’t?), stretched out on warm Ibizan sands- or y’know what; simply hitting the hustle and bustle of London’s Carnaby St- there really is something for everyone. And trust me that something will make you feel a smidge cooler than you’d probably imagine.

Let’s take this gorgeous jumpsuit. I’ve had it hanging on the back of my door lusting after seasonally appropriate weather to wear it in; and it was only until this weekend I’ve been able to finally put it on. With a cool Aztec inspired print, beautifully draped armholes and bell bottomed trousers- it’s the perfect injection of Seventies my wardrobe has been hoping for (just think of festival season)- and I’m pretty excited to team it with oversized knits and sandals on cooler evenings…

Additionally, you wouldn’t be silly to be fooled into thinking these were taken in Autumn. With the crisp brown leaves decorating the trees, it’s a wonder when we’ll start to see blossom this year- either way, I could certainly get used to this sunshine and these beautiful golden sunsets- hopefully the blossom and daffodils won’t be long either.

and here’s what I wore…
