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#ve always been crazy about lace. When it comes pretty and delicate I’m even happier. And when I can pair it with denims ten I’m in heaven. Dressed it down here with a long line cardigan but it’s fabulous with skirts and trousers too. Check out my instagram for more pics of how I styled it on my night out last week. I’m slowly getting ready for the festive season. I can’t believe it’s almost upon us. It only feels lie summer ended. Are you getting ready… planning outfits for parties and celebrations is so exciting. I’m loving all the gorgeous velvets, lace and sequins
. I’ve listed a few of my favourite things on my wish list below.
Slight obsession with the military loo this Autumn. It’s a pretty straight forward look but with gold buttons and knee high boots it can be a easy way to everyday chic. Having timeless pieces are always a good investment. Wearing or using something most days is value for money. I try to be good and not over buy. I really try not to buy things I love but would never wear. I’ve done so much of that in the past. It looks beautiful on the hanger or I love the idea of wearing it but the reality is it stays on the hanger I and it never becomes a piece I would be able to use or wear.
Doubling up on buttons. The bigger the bolder the better. I love this style. Military is such a cool look. The combination of velvet and torn denim is also a fave of my. Glam-ing up my day look is so much fun. I love that you can wear this jacket with anything. It’s a master piece .. it makes everything and you look amazing.
The classic camel coat. The fail safe winter staple. Pretty much goes with anything and everything. Chic,comfortable and easy to wear. I love these coats and they last for years and years. It’s definitely worth investing in a good winter coat.This neutral shade is great for long lasting wear and you can always add a belt like I have here. Or even a pop of colour to compliment the soft shade.
Going with a pair of these cropped flared jeans is a great option for Autumn too. Great for showing off boots. As this year there are so many beautiful pairs with amazing details you need a hemline to compliment them. I’ve gone for a pair of sandals here as I was enjoying the last few weeks of freedom for the feet. I do try and resist winter for as long as possible.
