2013 Outfit Round Up: Helen

Looking back over Helen's outfits to pick my favourites of 2013 has been tricky. I have always coveted her style and each outfit has details I want to steal. She has a very clear vision for the theme of each look we try out, as you can see in my first three faves. I have chosen a monochrome theme for these, as she loves to wear blocks of colour for a streamlined look.

The first look is a re-worked Halloween look. I adore the dress Helen DIY'ed and wore as a skirt. The second is a fun collection of polkadots. The vintage pussybow blouse with pin-up lip brooch is adorable against the contrasting satchel. The third look is from our very first shoot together <3 which still remains my favourite. It was so fun and exciting to collaborate. And it was the first time I got to boss Helen around from behind the camera! This biker jacket is one Helen has had for a long time and is what I always picture here in.

 However, this year she has also embraced brights and patterns:

I have gone for more summery looks (as opposed to Helen's picks) as I love girlish skirts and dresses. (And I am really missing sunshine at the moment).  The first is a tropical dress from our Festival week. I have yet to steal try this dress but I want to. Any tropical outfit needs a lobster necklace! The second look was a cute beach look and the blouse is covered in  little divers. The final look I have chosen is my favourite of Helen's. The print of the dress is lovely and she has pulled it together with a super soft jacket and adorable flower crown. And I always love her with a little fringe.

One thing is obvious from them all- she is one well put together lady! What do you think of my picks?

Looking over all these photos has made me really proud of the work we have done on the blog this year. What started out as a private project to get us together more regularly has pushed us both to try out different (not-always-granny-ish) looks.
I'm really looking forward to what 2014 will bring us!
