Styled by Kimberley: Hello DODO


These photos are really making me nostalgic for the warmer weather. Fresher's Week is here, bringing with it a chill in the air, empty supermarket shelves and lurgy. Germs, germs, every where! And I've managed to catch it again. To be fair, I've been pushing my body a bit this last month, trying to press through a bout of fatigue. I moved house and the new one is spacious and bright but needs a bit of decorative work and new furniture to be how I want it. Ours is dwarfed in the huge tenement rooms. I was excited about my paint colour charts to begin with but, after looking at hundreds of rugs and buying ladders and fixing broken lights, the thought of actually stripping wallpaper and painting the cavernous walls is making me sniff dramatically. Add a whirlwind trip to Edinburgh for Fringe shows and some house-warming hosting around work and my body is kaput.

I'm dressing down for comfort at the moment but my casual looks are anything but boring. A t shirt is a t shirt but that doesn't mean the print can't be fun and a quick glance at HelloDODO instagram will show you how much joy you can get from colour and a good pun. Just look at the happy dinosaur face on my Hello DODO top! It is quite a nostalgic print, and the cut out features remind me of toddler toys and kids' billy bear cold meat that I ate way too much of in the nineties. I don't know if that's a good reminder for you but it certainly gives me the fuzzies. It's also a great way to remind people that I am quite nice, despite what my chronic bitch face might suggest.

A crop top might not seem the obvious choice when your health condition gives you a round, hard tummy but I've made my peace with the fact that I resemble a pregnant woman from lunch time onwards. This one is longer than most though, so it's great to wear with high-waisted trousers or shorts. (Or with colourful leggings to slob around the house, let's be honest.)

I tied the whole look together with a peach colour palette throughout but the easiest way to keep it fashun is by adding tassel earrings. I love 'em! These gorgeous peachy porcelain ones are from East Nook Studio, based in Fife.

If ever a t shirt was going to cheer me up and get me out of my sick bed it's this one! Thanks Hello DODO!

  1. The beer selection at this place was great and rotates often. Everyone who works at LA venues here makes you feel welcome. They remember your favorite drink and you will be glad to tweet about them.
