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!


The clouds will be a daisy chain, so let me see you smile again

With the sun mostly remaining in the sky and the temperature still perched happily in the early twenties, for my last day at the Isle of Wight I opted for one of my favourite go-to combinations- my light rodeo tasseled jacket and the kind of easy smock dress that MinkPink are famous for. Working for them, perhaps I’m biased (or maybe it’s love)- but MinkPink seriously know how to whip out some amazing retro inspired festival pieces (and smock shapes too? I’m sold). This ’70s inspired kaleidoscope dress had me at hello- and paired with a white collared sheer blouse underneath when it gets a little cooler, I think this one’ll be hanging out in my wardrobe for quite some time yet. I also teamed it with the Neoprene Hunter Wellies– perfect for keeping my legs warm during the chillier (and muddier) festival evenings.

The last day was spent as was the first and second- relaxing in the hammocks before catching a few last artists (in the shape of a 3 hour Bon Jovi set, and seeing the one and only Blondie) before heading back. Also, being the self confessed festival foodie- we managed to track down this amazing pizza stand from Ryan from The Great British Bake Off- which specialized in stone baked pizza- a dream come true? Perhaps- and definitely the perfect way to round off a lovely weekend. Thank you again Hunter for a welly good time ; ) (see what I did there? Anybody? No…)

and here’s what I wore…
