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 I live to see the seven wonders, I’ll make a path to the rainbow’s end

Apart from the fact this outfit is now firmly in ‘needed-opaque-tights-territory’- I was determined to snap these heels at their finest, even if it meant braving the chill for a wee moment (this is definitely an ‘indoor’ outfit BTW) and I am no longer condoning bare legs (sorry #notightsclub). Additionally, my current favourite go-to outfit combination is the Avril Lavigne favourite (or, in my mind, Audrey Hepburn favourite) of black and pink, but y’know pastel pink- instead of hot pink (and no flared jeans or netting sleeves included). In fact, this skirt has fast become one of my winter staples, and I’ve since invested in a couple of other pastel picks- as y’know when you got a good thing going and all that. I’m also making the most of wearing some fun shades whilst the sun is still shining, and these come from Vision Direct (where they also stock other designer sunnies and eye contacts)!

Anyway- Take 10! It’s been a while since we’ve gotten together to do one of these challenges, and this month Call It Spring got in touch to style some of their Autumn Winter pieces. These shoes are a little ‘edgy’ going by my normal taste (did I really just use the word ‘edgy’?) but I’ve fallen victim to their studded charm and the fact they make me feel a little cooler than I actually am (it’s all in the height, I’m sure)- means I’m sure they’re about to become a party season staple, even if they are paired with some 150 deniers…
