Happy New Year guys and girlies! Yes, I know we're nearly at the end of Jan but it's my first blog post of the year so yeah :) Hope you all had an amazing Christmas and a magical New Year and started 2018 off with good vibes and good company. I've been back at work for less than two weeks after an amazing holiday in Ghana and I'm already planning my next trip haa. This look was inspired by my African mum and her strong desire for everyone to wear white on Christmas Eve/New Years (if you know you know lol). I wanted to start the new year shining shining so I thought why not throw some creams and white hues together. Believe it or not, I got the top and coat from work (Dorothy Perkins) which is hilarious because I'm so far from their target market. We cater to 30-something year old ladies but the clothes looked wavy and were free so I'm not complaining. If you're sticking to one tone in an outfit try combining different textures like fur, suede (all faux ofcourse), wool, shiny fabrics etc like I've done. It adds a bit more depth to the look. And the bootcuts are back bihhhhhh, it was about time I featured my fave trousers of all time in a blog post. I got them for like £2 in H&M and they're the comfiest, softest, waviest trousers ever!
This year is the year of making serious moves and being bold in everything you do. I can't stress this enough. Even though I come across as loud and bubbly etc, I can actually be quite shy in certain situations (no one believes me but it's true lol) so I've decided that I'm going to be more courageous and continue to step out of my comfort zone this year. We can't get where we want to be and achieve what we want by being shy and reserved. Get up and get it gurrl. No excuses. What are some of your goals this year? Comment below!
