(pictures taken from the Guardian weekend magazine 22.01.11)

how stunning are these pictures from saturday's Guardian?!
i love the mixture of red, brown and turquoise, very preppy and 70's styled. i pulled out the pages immediately for my inspiration folder (which is more like a pile of paper squashed into my bookshelf!)
i did actually own a pair of brown cords for about a day last week from ASOS, but returned them out of fear it made me look like a shapeless boy, suddenly regretting it!

Yeah I've fallen in love with cords recently-I always think they are really unflattering but I've decided to persist in finding a pair that isn't, as I love the way they look. Those pictures just emphasize that in my mind. Thanks!

Such a great selection of images! The girl is fantastic. The clothes are so lovely even though on me they would probably make me look like a boy!

It would of been nice to see your ASOS trousers!

I wonderered how long it would take for a british blogger to put up this preppy tomboyish editorial. Saw it yesterday in the times... makes me ache for more chunky knits, cords and maybe a midi skirt x

Izzie said...

Amazing! I cannot wait 'til the weather gets colder so I can wear something like this!

i pulled these images out too!
one of the best style shoots in a while.
it's easily recreated and completely appeals to my current state of style.

Those pictures are beautiful thanks for putting them on here. I'm not a newspaper type of person so i always miss out on the great style sections. I might have to start buying the Sunday newspapers just for the supplements :)

I haven't been anyway near the blogosphere in a ages, but your blog was the first I had to check out. I have to say that: your Acne skirt is really nice; Amelie is a great film; and I love the colours in the first and fifth image in this post. :)
