From The Archive: 2012

A year of fewer questionable outfit choices, I finally found my blogging groove in 2012, and here you can find some favourite pieces, band interviews as they first appeared and a lot of hats too...

Style

Tickle me pink and rosy as a flushed red apple skin

I for one am someone that’s definitely ‘comfort’ over ‘style’. I’ve mentioned previously my adoration for tartan pj’s and how, if I could wear them out and call it ’90’s grunge revival’ I certainly would- and there are few pieces I own that come close to the cool and cosy factor. So, after ‘accidently’ stumbling across the House of Holland website on my daily stroll around the internet, and continuing to click on the ‘sale’ page I ended up ordering this jumper, but hey I’m glad I did. It’s a really lovely warm jumper, and I love the punchy phrasing, it’s the perfect balance of humour and the quirkiness of being a Brit. Although I’ve styled it pretty basically on the occassion (with my go-to flat forms) I think it’d look awesome with a crisp white shirt underneath, or teamed with some denim cut-offs or a skater style skirt with some fun HH tights!
I also played around a bit with some new nail art styles! (girliest sentence EVER), which was so nice as I haven’t had time recently. I tried out some 70’s inspired paisley print, and was pretty impressed with the outcome if I do say so myself! Although, I did forget about my right hand for a moment meaning there was a significant quality difference of hands at the end! Typical!

Also, how AMAZING was the Arctic Monkeys Katy B cover on the live lounge today, fan girling 4eva! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35T-6M1qb3k
