Dress: c/o Phase Eight
Shoes: c/o Sarenza
Whatever outfits I decide to wear on any given day I'm still a girly girl at heart and will forever be drawn to all things pink and shiney- even better if it's both together. The second I saw these shoes by Tamaris (not a brand I'd usually look at, I admit) on Sarenza I knew I needed them to be mine. At £34.99 they aren't exactly expensive and are the perfect subtle way to embrace this season's trend for all things metallic. I paired them with my beloved Phase Eight dress for their first airing although I couldn't wear them all day as they need a little bit of breaking in first.
How are we almost at the end of the second month of this year? It's scary and it's worse when I think back to this time last year, so filled with sad and worrying events in the family and how long ago that seems now. As soon as the weather improves I plan to visit Sidmouth where my Nan's ashes are scattered as I feel a sudden need to be near her. That might sound stupid, but I suppose anyone who has lost someone close to them will relate on some level.
Anyway, to focus on happier things I am pleased to say this year as so far proven to be better, all we need now is the arrival of Spring; I can't bring myself to start planning my S/S wardrobe fully whilst I'm still shivering in knits and complaining about the weather every two seconds. I'm really loving the new season trends- especially monochrome, metallics and neon and can't wait to stock up. What will you be wearing when things warm up? I'm also starting to get excited for swimwear in anticipation of my August holiday. Black sequin bikini from Asos, you WILL be mine!
