    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.

    Pin for later!!New Beginnings

      Your mother has such a great eye. She is so funny not to divulge her source! Absolutely adore those sandals (although the middle age woman in me is shouting about you have freezing cold toes!)

      • January 5, 2017 / 7:59 am

        Hahahaha she is a crazy and loving lady lol. I was lucky to have only been outside for minutes at a time so my feet where ok

      I think the color combo worked out well. And my Mom is the same way, she refuses to disclose where she buys our gifts. Lol. Happy New Year to you! ❤️

      • January 5, 2017 / 7:58 am

        Hahahaha mothers eh! Thanks so much, I am pleased the colour combo actually worked

      You look incredible my friend. Wow. The shoes are my favorite. Happy New Year.

      • January 5, 2017 / 7:57 am

        Awww thanks Valerie, I appreciate that and Happy New Year to you too

    30. January 2, 2017 / 4:24 pm

      Those shoes are my absolute favorite part of the outfit, which is quite pretty as well, but I am a shoe junkie big time. So cute, they remind me of a white pair I used to have, but eventually wore them out and can’t seem to find anything like it.

      • January 5, 2017 / 7:57 am

        Awww bless, I used to be a shoe junkie too but now I am more in moderation. My mother sells several of my old pairs weekly

      That dress looks ridiculously beautiful on you, I adore the colour – I think because I have blonde hair and fair skin it wouldn’t suit me but I love the fit too – I would definitely buy it in another shade for me.


      • January 5, 2017 / 7:56 am

        Awww thanks Em, I loved the colour the minute I saw it and the fit is just right (before food baby lol)

    32. January 2, 2017 / 2:06 pm

      I love the dress and the colour, I love the shoes but I just would not be able to walk more than two steps in them, and your bag is gorgeous x

      • January 5, 2017 / 7:55 am

        Hahahaha, I love these shoes but I respectfully keep them in the closet more than on my feet

    33. January 2, 2017 / 1:24 pm

      What a really pretty dress! I like the color a lot. The purse is gorgeous too!

      • January 5, 2017 / 7:55 am

        Thanks so much Amber

    34. January 2, 2017 / 12:51 pm

      This is such a nice shade, and the fit is great too! 🙂

      • January 5, 2017 / 7:53 am

        Thanks Milly, I love it

    35. January 2, 2017 / 12:21 pm

      The grey and mustard really do work well together. It is nice to see some photos of you! xx

      • January 5, 2017 / 7:53 am
