I've certainly neglected this part of my thinking process in the last couple of years - I didn't realise how valuable it was to organising my thoughts and how cathartic I found it. I have felt totally overwhelmed by fashion in the last year - something I hope to talk about more in a separate post - but rather than diving in to explore all the many things that piqued my interest, I took a step back.
At the moment, I love the ongoing 80s influences happening, in all their bright, woozy excess - see this upcoming season's oversized outerwear, always and forever my favourite kind. I am enjoying the 80s trend even more now the noughties revival is gaining traction; it has fused together into a knockout combination of pastel blazers, oversized earrings, and kitten heels, which is all I can think about wearing right now. I love simple, pared-down classics, with a statement flash of lime green, cobalt blue, or, since pink could be now considered a neutral, the contrast of pink and red.
I hope I can return to blogging - if only to sift through my own thoughts - with the same enthusiasm as I had a few years ago!

All items Asos
Break-ups, procrastination and living in a house with eight girls all lead to a very full online shopping basket. I love the abundance of leather, interesting shapes and muted tones that Asos are throwing our way this spring! My head says no but my heart screams yes, yes, yes!

Simone Rocha a/w '13 via
Latex! Fur! Glitter!! Simone Rocha is probably my favourite designer working at the moment. What could be boring territory - simple shapes and separates - is made cool with surprising fabrics and kooky accessories. Those veils. Those headscarves. THOSE glittery brogues. I swooned over last season's show - but I can't explain how much love I have for her latest offering.

Things on my mind: knotted headscarfs, low metallic heels, perfectly rolled hair, Louis Vuitton checkerboard print, the O.C. reruns and Marissa Cooper's hair, O.T.T. cat-eye sunglasses, clompy shoe-boots, high ponies, sheer chiffon, headbands.
