Hello, 2017 and Happy New Year! What an up and down year it’s been. 2016 has definitely had blue (or, let’s say, navy) moments, but it has also been great and the most amazing memories have been made, too. I have visited lots of beautiful places and met some new people along the way, which I am very thankful for. Here’s to 2017 being the best year yet!
I’m excited for 2017 and can’t wait to see what this year brings! Already looking forward to a few days in Rome at the end of March as I’ve never been and I can’t stop thinking about the delicious food I will get to eat. Pizza and pasta all day, please. There’s also Glastonbury to look forward too and I am sure more trips and events will pop up, too.I am however mainly excited to put all my efforts into achieving my 2017 goals whether it is (just to name a few), dancing and blogging more – I won’t be neglecting my blog this year, eating healthier, stop second-guessing myself and saving as much as possible for travelling. I am taking this quite seriously this year and have wrote all my goals down in the hope that this keeps me motivated and focused. I also can’t wait to learn new creative skills and one of my goals is that I want to learn how to properly sew – wild, I know. What are your new year’s resolutions?? This NYE was amazing, and I hope you all enjoyed your night! I love planning my outfit for NYE, this year I got a little creative and decided to channel metallic bohemia vibes inspired by the wonderful Rodarte Fall 16 collection. Could velvet be the new black? I am obsessed with velvet and when I finally bought my paisley/ floral blazer I knew it was perfect for NYE. As always, I wore my moon and star silver necklace and of course my collection of rings, lace up black heels to add more detail along with my sphere suede bag.I fell in love with Rodarte’s hand-craftsmanship that is always second to none, they manage to produce something so romantic and futuristic but artfully combine this with unique, vintage feels. I couldn’t help but adore the array of metallic floral hair adornments and their placement.After scouring the internet for hours, I couldn’t find what I was looking for until I spotted a pretty metal collar brooch which had two flowers connected with a chain in the middle. This simply had to work. I, and my mum, of course cut the chain from the middle and overlapped the two separate flowers, glued them to strong slides and repeated for the second clip. And that’s it. Easy. (A lot more frustrating than you think). Definitely not as refined as Rodarte but I liked how they turned out nonetheless.Blazer – Zara, heels – Asos, bag – Reiss, skirt – Missguided, brooch – Here.
Wishing you a fun-filled, wonderful 2017. Let’s make it sparkly!Lots of love,
