I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas!! I had a great few days with my family, during which I ate far too much – but then who doesn’t at Christmas? Christmas is definitely the best time of year (at least I think so) so I’m sad it’s all over, but then I have quite a few exciting things coming up in 2014 which I’m looking forward to telling you about, so I won’t wallow for too long in post-Xmas misery! I also received some amazing presents this year, so I’m a very lucky girl, and I will pop some of my favourite bits up on here over the next few days! In the meantime, here is an outfit which I really love at the moment and it includes my latest obsession – the polo neck! I really can’t get enough of the polo neck at the moment, so expect to see a lot more featuring on here as I have a feeling the obsession is only going to grow!
I think one of the best things ever is when you find something in your wardrobe that you’d totally forgotten about…I found this printed skater skirt from Miss Selfridge buried in the depths of my wardrobe the other day! This seems to happen to me a lot, my wardrobe isn’t exactly the tidiest place in the world and it’s definitely easy to ‘lose’ things. So this was a rather nice discovery and, whilst I don’t really wear skirts all that often, the print definitely works well with my all time favourite colour scheme – black and white! If I wear anything with a bold print, then I always prefer to team it with something relatively plain, so what better excuse to wear this black roll neck! I’ve got a massive obsession going on with these right now, I think they’re so stylish and really easy to wear during the day. Plus, they go with pretty much anything and they keep your neck lovely and warm.
I’ve been after these boots for ages, I’ve seen them and tried them on in New Look quite a few times but always decided not to buy them…it’s not as if I don’t have enough boots already. But when I saw them in the sale the other day I felt that was the ultimate sign I had to buy them and I love them; they’re super comfy, with just the right sized heel to give me a bit of height but without being too impossible to walk in. I’m slightly wary of getting the white platform dirty, but I’m guessing that’s inevitable so I won’t whinge too much. Then we have the lovely Guess bag which is an incredible sale buy, my Mum picked it up for me during a shopping trip to Cambridge a while ago – it’s always great to get a nice designer deal like this, there is no way you could or would buy at normal price, but in the sale, then why not!
