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!

If the thought of Wes Anderson ever bringing out a clothing line has appealed to you (come on, I know you’ve lusted for Margot and Suzi’s wardrobes- who could say no to that many collars and tennis dresses?) with the realization following, that hey, it probably won’t happen- Orla Kiely is your lady. Come on, it’s not new news. Orla has a serious knack for a cute sixties inspired collared numbers, whimsy prints and gorgeous fresh palettes, and Spring Summer 2014 isn’t looking any different.

Teamed with an appropriate soundtrack of the Dixie Cups and REM’s ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’ you wouldn’t be mistaken in thinking you could have been spying on a real life group of girl scouts on safari (especially with the Um Bongo hiding in the corner). With utility style pockets and detailing, animal prints from zebra to giraffe, and bags cut in the shape of animal heads (cute, not gory I promise)- my wish list is already growing rapidly.

Additionally, with the footwear taken from Kiely’s SS14 collaboration with high street heroes, Clarks- it’s pretty certain we’ll be kitted out from head to toe- plus, I’m pretty sure it also speaks volumes that I have just bought my first pink beret- see you next season!
