Chin Up, Head Down… – Yours Truly

Like most people, I love the ‘freshness’ that a new year brings. The opportunity for a clean slate, new beginnings and adventures. I already have a lot planned for this year, and some real hopes for where I might be able to take it. Holidays and little trips are starting to be considered, and I must start knuckling down with regard to my creative endeavours (more on that another time!) Best thing of all though? I started my year in Brighton! After moving here late in the Summer of last year, it feels amazing to look where 2012 took me…Some of it certainly wasn’t planned! I love this seaside city, and the energy and creativity that breeds within it. With that in mind, here is one resolution for you – I’m going to work even harder on Yours Truly, x this year and try my best to make every post better!

These photos were taken on a grey afternoon near Brighton train station. There are quite few murals left over from the recent Whale Fest in Brighton, and this is one of them. Isn’t it lovely?

This hairstyle was a first for me. After creating my little beehive bump, I was at a bit of a loss with what to do with the remaining hair. Perhaps it was a Pattie Boyd influence, but the 60’s style pigtails felt great!
I haven’t worn pigtails in years…Who knows, maybe it’ll be my favourite style of 2013?!

The peter pan dress with an eBay purchase over Christmas – I love the deep rusty colour. And it’s such a thick fabric that it feels very retro…Despite being a reproduction!  I let the dress do the talking, keeping it simple with a plain navy H&M cardigan, vintage Dior stockings and old Topshop white brogues. Having your photos taken near work men was never going to be much fun!  I hope you all had a great NYE – for those of you who follow me on instagram, you’ll know I tried my best to bring it in style (Oh Cointreau! You are a tasty devil!) Apologies for the short post, I have a few more bits to show and tell, but alas they’re not quite ready yet! In the mean time, enjoy your weekend and I’ll be back soon!
