Abigail's party

jumper - Popjulia
coat - Stylewe
trousers & shoes - Primark
jewellery - Depop and H&M
bag - Kadell

Unable to quite believe that another year is almost up. Whilst we're currently in that in-between leftover mince pies and wrapping paper under the sofa stage, last minute resolutions, excessive champagne and existential crises will soon  be on the cards.

It's been a whirlwind and a half, that's for sure, but what's next? At least, that's the question we're so often asked.

And the New Year is certainly no different. Whether you're at a civilised family affair or sticky floored bar, questions tend to circle like vultures and the air suddenly turns sour. 
Rather than focusing on the present, the topic of conversation shifts to the future - to expectations and plans for what's to come.

Of course, it's never a bad thing to think about the future and set out ambitions for the year ahead. But when it gets to the point where anticipation for what's next takes over enjoyment of the here and now, it's questionable how beneficial it really is.

In short, I'm hoping for 2018 to bring more time with my favourite people, another New York trip and of course, more clothes. But, in the mean time, I'm going to spend some time enjoying this hot chocolate and back of the bread bin mince pie. 

Wishing you all a wonderful festive season.

Well Dressed

One small downside of my life is the lack of occasions I get to wear fancy dresses to. 
The upside is, this realisation still hasn't quite dawned on me yet, as I continue to be attracted to sequins and embroidery and lace like some kind of textile magpie.

These three gems from ScrappyKokoStore illustrate this rather perfectly.

Which would you wear?

Bright Christmas

Every year I go through the same 'I've definitely got enough jumpers' phase, and yet, each year that very quickly comes to end. Mainly corresponding with the same time that I see a jumper I quite like. Strange how these things work.

What's even stranger is how attached I've grown to colourful pieces recently; the pops of colour are quickly expanding into taking up half my wardrobe - which these Gamiss pieces now fit so perfectly into.

Which would you wear?

Love will keep us together

 sweatshirts - By me, c/o Tunetoo

I'm all about doing things myself. 

Whether that's online shopping, falling asleep on the train or sitting down with a mug of something warm, I've always been content to go it alone.

So when Tunetoo were kind enough to let me design my own pieces, I practically jumped at the chance.

There's something so nice about creating something that's unique to you, especially when you're  overflowing with ideas and are in desperate need of an outlet.

It was most certaintly Tunetoo to the rescue.

What would you write on your sweatshirt?

Click your heels

top - ebay
trousers and jacket - H&M

dress - Missguided
bag - Depop
shoes - Lightinthebox

It's funny how a change of shoes can change how you feel. How finding a new pair of shoes on your doormat can lift your mood, and your heels off the floor. 
 (Eat your heart out Dorothy.)

Whilst the rest of your outfit might look dull, that pointed toe or flash of red can be that finishing touch and somehow make everything that little bit more put together.

And I am so in need of anything that helps me look 'put together'. Thank god for Lightinthebox.

What's your favourite pair of shoes?
