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...

Lifestyle Style

In the deserts of Sudan and the gardens of Japan, from Milan to Yucatan, every woman, every man

As I’ve often spoken about, my absolute go-to item is a good pair of trousers, and in particular a good pair of jeans- something pretty hard to acquire, but so worth the search. These black jeans I have had for years, and although they have worn from an over dyed black to a dusty charcoal they are possibly the basis to all of my favourite outfits. More recently they have been teamed with a worn white tee, loose chain and pyjama style blazer jacket, perfect for a ‘I’ve-thrown-this-together-but-am-still-attempting-to-look-trendy-look’. A reason why I absolutely love this jacket from New Look (I’ve also seen a similar style on Topshop here, which is beautiful!), who said pj’s were just for bed!?

Anyway, I hope everyone is well! I’ve spent the last three days in Nottingham, celebrating mine and Joe’s 3 years with pancakes, pasta, films and a good gig- which has been absolutely lovely. Whilst I was there Joe and I were also speaking about the music side of my blog. Once upon a time, this blog was solely music reviews and photos, and recently I’ve been dying to add some more of that into What Olivia Did, as I love new music, just as much as I love new printed trousers ;). So, in the next week or so, expect a little more coming your way (and a guest post from Joe himself!) I’m very excited!

Also, I’d like to say a HUGE HUGE thank you to all the love and tweets I got on Sunday (and a few bloggy comments), it really means the world to me and makes me realise that there are some genuinely lovely people out there, and I indefinitely do have some of the best readers in the world, so thank you thank you!
