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!


I follow you, pretend you want me to

It was only until a couple of weeks ago that I fell back in love with Zara. I didn’t feel cool enough for a lot of their more trend led pieces, and it was only through living vicariously through my mums wardrobe that I realised they really did have some gorgeous pieces (including a collection of blouses I continue to pinch- thanks mum)! However, when I saw this slightly bridal midi dress, I picked it up- tried it on- and the rest is history. I’ve already worn it several times (including with my trusty biker jacket, with Chelsea boots and sandals) and I know it has lots of wear in it.

Anyway, I recently wore it whilst out on a birthday lunch with my lovely Nan and Mama P. We’d surprised her with afternoon tea at The Berkeley’s infamous Prêt-À-Portea– and after waiting to go for what feels like a lifetime it was everything I’d expected and more. We dined on cakes and mini puddings inspired by Dolce & Gabbana (flash ‘eh?), and nibbled on bikini shaped cookies and bite sized sushi- it all felt incredibly regal and glamorous (until we rolled back on to the commuter train home nursing food babies, of course).

Additionally, I also wore it whilst shooting a little project with the beautiful Beauxoxo and the wonderful Kitty– along with a handful of some of my favourite bloggers and Youtuber. Paired with a white rose and baby’s breath crown, I felt like a little flower fairy (or dreamy bride to be- don’t panic, Joe) and enjoyed the couple of hours being a bit daft traipsing through the cherry blossoms in Hyde Park (sickly sweet and incredibly twee sentence there- but incredibly true nonetheless)…


and here’s what I wore…
