Acquired this gorgeous blush pink oversized smoking jacket last week. I’ve been trying to hold off on wearing it but as it was such a beautiful day I couldn’t resit taking it from its hanger and slipping it on. Foolish of me to even think I could keep it unworn in my wardrobe for longer then a few days. I also brought out my sunglasses for the first time in ages, it takes a while for the eyes to adjust to sunlight after months of winter …

Thought I’d bring some brightness to the start of my 2012. I bought these pants a few weeks ago, I want to cut the pockets out to give a better shape but with the chaos of xmas I haven’t had the chance. I think they make the hips look too bulky, I’d rather a smoother line but I couldn’t resit getting them all the same.

I’ve mixed soft pastels with a strong florescent jumper for a fresh sporty look. My outfit is inspired by my new zest to getting fit again. I want to do some form of training that I enjoy. It’s been such a long time since I worked out and for some reason I’ve been missing it of late. I think it was sparked by my sprint the other day to catch the departing train home from London. I managed to board it just in time, but for my troubles I had a burning chest for a good half hour.. the alarm bells rang and I realised I really need to get fit again. I also want to generally tone up, oh and try to eat less take out. Having a ditsy waist has always been one of my desires but I’ve never managed to accomplish it. Sometimes it’s just body type. Even when I was training full time for my athletics I couldn’t get tiny, looking back I realised I was a strong woman able to lift weights in league with world class athletes, which I guess was more relevant then my waist measurements. The problem with my training since I quit track is that I get too competitive and want to lift the same weights I did back then and race cars on what’s supposed to be a gentle jog.. ha ha. Well I’m gonna see how it goes and hopefully I’ll find the time to train again.

Good luck to you all in 2012.

Loving the pop colours coming into season. Great 80’s remix feel. This time round thou it’s been done more classy then trashy and it’s good to be able to wear strong colours that look great with light wash denims or clashed with other bold colours. The new year is mad for these candy pop and pastel lights that enhance skin tone and eye colour. Enjoy….
