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.
