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!

You know on occasion girls will talk about their ‘go-to’ outfit, or complete ‘staple’ pieces? The items they turn to in times of bad hair days, I’ve-eaten-too-much-cake days and down right lazy days? Well these black jeans and striped t shirt would be my answer.
The thing about a good Breton striped top and a pair of comfy jeans that I love, is how easy they are to customize. I don’t mean with safety pins and fabric paint (although my 13 year old Art Attack and Avril loving self wouldn’t mind) but how with a slick of red lipstick and a messy ‘hive- an oh so simply outfit can make you feel a little like a cool sixties film character (the operative word here is feel) and I’m sure that can only ever be a good thing.

Teamed with this awesome leopard coat from Next (yup, they really have got some amazing things online at the moment), my mannish Zara loafers and matching huuge Topshop bag (my laptop is a little bulky, ok) I think it equates to one of the most wearable, easy outfits you can think of- and you know what? It won’t go out of fashion either.

and here’s what I wore…
