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!!
Swirling and falling to the floor dresses are my latest craze. I love these gorgeous vintage style maxi dresses around at the moment. The designer ones ( I’ve listed below) are my ultimate dream dress but I’m making do with this high street version. Styled it up with a shirt and pretty chiffon neck bow. The little things that you keep you can always bring out years later.Special pieces like this gorgeous neck bow has been in my wardrobe for some time .. it seems the perfect accessory for this year. What with the victorian necklines splattered all ver the recent runway shows. The trend is one of my favourites. The neckline adorned with either flowers, bows or scarfs. Dream state dressing. It’s a really nice direction I’d like to take my style in. Something a little different to my usual. So I’m looking to embrace it and I’m now on the hunt for pretty frilled blouses and lace collars. Have a great week. xx Dawn
A girls girl kinda dress. White, lace and oh so sweet and pretty. How could you not love this.Well I certainly do. Its beautiful fabric is heavy and snug. Not an uncomfortable dress but something you can just slip on and wear with minimum effort. I would have on one every colour if I could. But I’m very happy to have just this one. Perfect summer time dress. Dressing it with heels, flats cardigans and sweaters it’s an ideal wardrobe filler. In-fact it’s centre piece for me. Special occasions or just a day out. It’s just lovely.Dawn xx
I’ve always loved lace and I’ve always loved teaming it with other textures like leather and in this case denim. It’s a great way to style the look for night or day. In this case it makes the dress a little more wearable for the day. It’s a wear what you like and love era. Where there really aren’t any rules to wearing specific colours or textures. It’s great to just enjoy fashion your way.
It’s starting to warm a little so I’ve worn bare legs for the first time in a while…eerrr it’s horrible when your skin hasn’t seen daylight in ages and it needs a good few weeks of sunshine to make it look alive again. I always give myself a light coating of fake tan in the early months of spring/summer. It helps give a healthy glow.
