Well it’s not Paris that’s for sure. Where I should of been watching couture shows and fluttering around Parisian cafes. I’m sat here at home with a broken heart (over dramatised of course) but honestly I’m still in shock over not being able to get to Paris. It seems I’m jinxed when it comes to travelling or attending occasions! My flight was cancelled due to adverse weather!! If you watch my instastories you would of seen the thick fog that shrouded the airport and grounded flights. Such a shame to miss a wonderful opportunity. Hopefully get to make up for it and head over for fashion week. Still it’s left me feeling pretty glum.
And now instead of sitting in Paris I’m sat here in Cardiff in the sweet cafe that resembles something a little Parisian! I’ve wrapped up in this overly long cardigan which is so nice as it wraps around and keeps legs warm when wearing skirts. It’s a good transitional piece for spring and something I will wear all year round. I also love wearing something long over something short. Have a great week Dawn xx
Happy New Year !! How’s your first week been..? I’ve found it really hard to get back into life after Christmas. It was such a lovely time. But it’s back to January and to save me from the blues I’ve been looking at a few new arrivals. Couldn’t resist the satin look. I bought it and wore it within 24 hours, that’s always a good sign. Nothing worse then buying something and it just sitting in your wardrobe for weeks/ months untouched.
I adore the vintage feel with its lace finishes and gorgeous gold colour. I put it on and felt okay about January .. even if it was just for a day. I wore it with these velvet rose detailed mules. Which I thought suited the look. These are one of my favourite additions from the sales. If you follow me over on Instagram you’ll know I was lusting after these for ages. I like the robe and slipper look I’ve achieved here. Something a little different and I think it’s a nice way to get ready for Spring Forever the hopeful … Ha ha

So .. how was your Christmas? Hope you all had a wonderful day. I can’t believe it’s been already and it’s now boxing day. I do love the days after Christmas. Everyone is chilled out and there’s still lots of lovely food around and a happy atmosphere. I also love looking forward to the New Year. And the fact we will soon be in coming into Spring. I’ve really enjoyed winter this year. Helped by the beautiful clothing I’m sure. Christmas was fun and wearing lovely dresses and everything sparkly is always a treat. I do love the New Year. The best thing about it for me are all the new arrivals landing for the coming season. The sales are great but there’s nothing nicer then seeing all the pretty Spring/Summer clothing arriving. I’ve managed to get my hands on this gorgeous lace dress from the new season collection at Wallis. It’s the perfect dress to see me into the new year. I’ll be partying in it new Years eve and then adding it as my staple dress for the coming months. I’ve teamed it here with sandals ready to party but I love it with tights and boots too. I think I’ll layer it with a blouse as well. All the possibilities from one dress. I’ve always been a huge fan of lace as you probably already know. It’s one of my favourite trends. I pretty much team lace with anything. It’s a definite wardrobe essential for me.
Have you made any new years resolutions yet..? I usually go with the keeping fit one and the eating healthier one. But I’m little naughty at sticky to them.I find these ones the hardest to stick to. Maybe I should go with the buy more dresses option. I’ll do very well at that!!

I do love winter nudes. Warm and glowing against the skin for a delicate winter look. Teaming it with daytime dem is nice too. I love a lace cami and denim jeans. Subtle chic dressing. Layering with cardigans and coats is perfect. Cardigans are oe of my favourite wardrobe staples. I love throwing them on. So easy to wear. Having something versatile is so important. As i always say I love getting full use out of the things I buy. I certainly do with these key pieces I’ve included in ths outfit. Year after year I can always rely on these pretty winter nudes to brighten up my day.
