From The Archive: 2016

The year of travel- from Aus to Africa- as well as some of my favourite ever photos, I hope 2016 brings a small dose of wanderlust (and fashion inspiration if not)!


That Ruffled Blouse

(Shirt: Marks and Spencer, Jeans: ASOS, Bag: Accessorize, Shoes: Next)

Photos (as always) by Joe Galvin

I initially started this post with a sentence about the weather. Not because it’s predictably ridiculous for this time of year (‘ooh, was that snow I felt? In March? Probably’)- but because I realised that I’m probably a little more artful at editing than I’ve ever let on, seeing as these snaps were taken during a complete ‘cats-and-dogs’ rain episode one day last week. Fortunately, you can’t hear the thunder through this blog post, or see the silky (ahem, slippery) rain splattered pavements- as let’s face it- this blouse is doing most of the talking (and the Charlotte Street Hotel, but that’s definitely one for another day).

But the blouse! I think I first saw this shirt at the Marks and Sparks press day last year (or even on my Instagram timeline)- either way, the end result was a screen grab on my phone and an urge to snap it up the moment it landed in store (damn you seasonal previews). Fast forward a few months and Joe and I are waltzing through Marks and Spencer in Bluewater to spot this little ruffled piece of goodness hanging up (more me spotting it than Joe, but you get the gist). Safe to say the reward of our spontaneous shopping trip resulted in me flying over to the checkout, being greeted by 25% off (oh you cheeky weekend deals)- and continuing the weekend a very happy lady. I’m already busy thinking of future pairings, and feel a button up skirt, kick flares and pumps may be my next bet…

and here’s what I wore…
