Got some new shoes on

Well, the festive season is well a truly over, decorations are down and the only things that remain are the extra inches round my tummy and bum (1 and a half to be exact!).  It is almost impossible to not overindulge during Christmas, a week (and a bit) of not eating normal meals and telling yourself that chocolate for breakfast is ok, because it is Christmas after all... 

I have come back to reality with a bump, glad to be back at work....haha.  It is nice to have a bit of routine again and eat proper food though.  However, for the next few weeks swing dresses and big jumpers will be my friends.

With a wedding to plan I am on a spending ban at the moment, not really sure how I am going to cope with that.  Just have to keep thinking that denying myself something just now means I will get an awesome wedding dress!  It does also mean I will have to get a bit more creative with styling the clothes I already have, I may even discover some things in the depths of my wardrobe I forgot I had.


Because the weather has been so rubbish I have had to resort to taking pictures in the flat, the lighting is not too good but it is better than being outside, getting soaked and blown about by our brilliant Scottish weather.



My outfit today was pretty simple, black swing dress and cons.  I haven't owned a pair of high tops in about 6 years so I was really pleased when I picked these up in the sales.  My new Bonnie Bling got it's first showcase today, it is the perfect accessory, so pleased someone was paying attention for xmas gifts.

  1. I absolutely adore your necklace! So cute and unique! I also love how you styled the dress with pink Converse. It's an unexpected touch, but it works so well!
