17 January 2014
It's been a while and much has changed since my last outfit post… almost 18 months ago. For a long time I didn't think that I would ever post on this blog again but I finally feel ready and most importantly, excited to step in front of the camera again.
January is always a dull affair and small pleasures are most welcome so Kirsty (who you may know as a wooden tree) and I planned a catch up at one of our favourite spots, Earthy. Tea, gossip and cake is always the order of business. I can personally recommend their heavenly lemon and poppyseed cake, so good in fact that I devoured it before even thinking of snapping a picture. In summer their garden is full of leafy plants and happy customers enjoying ice cream but now, in the dead of winter is was quiet all except for a solitary Irish comedian who I feel did not enjoy or constant chatter was we snapped away.
A friend recently commented on how much my style has changed over the past year or so, at the time I denied this but while I was editing these images, I realised how correct they were. These days my style is far more masculine and low maintenance than it has been in the past. This coat is a perfect example, I didn't realise just how much my wardrobe was missing a classic peacoat until I snagged this one in the Zara sale. It goes with everything I owns and I literally haven't taken it off since I got it home.
Thank you Miss Anderson for taking the pictures and remaining cheerful through out my directions, you are a darling!
