New Beginnings 

New beginnings, new ambitions, new opportunities and desires but same old me. I am not one for the New You mantra, I am more New Year same old me. The past experiences, trials and tribulations have helped shape who I am today so no not new me. Same old me just new situations, new experiences both good and bad.

Fashion Monday ~ New Beginnings

The new beginnings outfit I planned a few weeks back when I went shopping with my mother. Originally I was going to pair this dress with a black coat hence the heels. But mother dearest gave my jacket to my sister and gave me the grey one instead. I wasn’t sure about the colour combo but my doubts where truly unfounded. These two colour combos work together so well. 

Even though I have said I planned this outfit a few weeks back, I didn’t actually know I would wear a dress. I had shared in my Sparkle into Christmas that I would be avoiding sparkles at all cost. That transferred over to my plans for New Year’s Eve and Day outfit to church. For New Year’s Eve I just worn my ripped jeans, boots and big scarf to church.

To enter the New Year I felt I needed to up my game from end of year and was glad I had this dress in my wardrobe. The heels I got a few years back whilst at university from a friend. She didn’t fit in them so she gifted them to me and though I love them I hardly wear them. These heels are too high for my liking but for a killer entry into the New Year I figured why not.

The jacket I believe my mother bought from with a clothes shop in Finsbury Park or Amazon. She is refusing to expose her sources to others including me lol. To finish off this outfit I paired with my African earrings and new watch from NewChic.com.

    That coat is lovely! Your mum has great taste. Not sure I’d wear those shoes in today’s weather though xD

      She truly has and I felt since we were opening the year why not start it with a bang hence the heels

    I love the mix of yellow and grey. They compliment each other beautifully and make you look really classy. A perfect splash of colour for the darker days
