I’m back with my first outfit post of 2017 – sorry I’ve been a bit slow off the mark this year. I found getting back into my routine a little harder this year. I was so busy before Christmas that when I stopped for a break, starting again was so much harder. It’s like after a run haha you’re fine if you just keep going but if you stop that’s when you feel it. The TWO colds I got over Christmas this year definitely slowed me down a little too.
Now we are well and truly into January and Christmas feels like a distant memory. The weather has really taken a colder turn the last while – I always find January and February to be the coldest, just when you think Winter is gone and Spring is on the way haha we still have another bit to go before it’s anyway warm again, but at least the days are getting longer!!! We are so blessed in the summer with brightness until 9/10pm!
Anyway, I was home for the weekend for my sisters birthday and it was so nice! It was made that little bit better with the news that I was nominated for Influencer of the Year in the Goss Awards this year. I really don’t think I have a hope of winning, but it’s just so cool to be in there beside some of my favourite influencers and friends! It’s a nice little reminder to keep going with it 🙂
I think before Christmas I was so caught up working that I got a little bit confused about what exactly my blog stood for. Should I share more? Where do I want it to take me? Is my content good enough? What is my end goal? Where do I draw the line? These are questions I’ll always ask myself and it is the downside of working in this industry. Having some time over Christmas to just chill really gave me time to remind myself why I started it and it gave me time to put things in perspective. First and foremost it’s something I enjoy – so it’s my priority to keep it that way, especially while I’m still working full time. I don’t have the answers, but I think most people don’t so we’re all just going with it and hoping at some point down the line we figure it out. It’s encouraging to be nominated an award like that, because even if I don’t feel like it half the time, I must be doing something right?! 🙂 If you have a second I’d love if you would have a look and vote for your favourite.
Anyway, that’s enough babbling. Let’s talk about this look. As always, black boots are my go-to in the winter months. I have quite a few pairs, but finally I’ve gotten my hands on a pair that are actually practical as well as stylish. These SOREL boots are completely waterproof, and created with a functional fashion element in mind, so even though it gives you enough height with the heel it’s still designed to be walked around in all day without stopping you (They are so comfy!!! I know how hard it is to find a comfy pair of boots – trust me!) They are available in store in Arnotts now and online from the SOREL website here.
I’ve paired this look with my new extra long grey coat from Dorothy Perkins, my trusty Topshop jeans and a Pretty Little Thing croptop. I’ve dressed up this pretty simple look with my Gucci Mini Marmont bag and my Dior So Real Sunglasses.
I’m (more or less) back into my routine now, so from here on out there will be weekly updates on the blog,
Have a great week guys,
