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!

So, during my last day in Paris (which was ultimately spent catching some z’s and finding somewhere that did a ‘proper’ breakfast) I decided to embrace the relatively dry weather (no matter how romantic it sounds, I will never love Paris in the rain that much, sorry Regina Spektor) before I headed home and the 180 deniers had to come back out. Now, I feel I haven’t properly embraced the whole ‘fashion blogger Zara’ love affair going on of late (I missed the ‘skort’ train), so this skirt is my nod to their amazing new collection, and well obligatory uniform if you go by my occupation. Paired with another completely beautiful Vivetta piece and my go-to ASOS heels- it was a little overdressed for a coach ride back, but who can blame a girl for wanting to feel good?

Also, did you think I was telling porkie pies when I said I’d taken a lot of inspiration from the Orla Kiely presentation? Although I’m still mustering up the courage to full on wear this beret a la Suzy Bishop (or, um Samuel L Jackson) it’s one of my favourite winter accessories- and if I can brave it I’m sure it would look adorable with a candy pink coat and white tights- not that I’ve thought about it or anything…

and here’s what I wore…
