I'm curious - does anybody else feel wildly optimistic about this brand new year that lays ahead of us?
At the tail end of last year I felt like my life in Brighton was moving more in the direction I wanted, and I've never felt happier than now to be in my seaside city.
Joshua and I went running errands yesterday, and despite the ferocious winds, and scattered rain storms, we somehow managed to get some half-decent blog photos! I'm thankful my man is so patient!
I've been itching to get started on Yours Truly this year, but the bad weather and dark nights have really been a hinderance - roll on Spring!
The patchwork tunic dress I'm wearing is from the Topshop Christmas sale. I remember seeing it hanging in Oxford Circus when it was full price, and loved the graphic, potato-print style of the patchwork pattern.
It's a size or so too big, but I like that this adds to the loose, clean structure of the garment. The slightly cropped sleeves are always a favourite of mine too.
With a dress so 'busy' I kept everything else really simple. This chunky perspex tassle ring is one of my old favourites from my student days.
My make up is a combination of '& Other Stories' and MAC. I'm still so happy to have re-discovered yellow eyeshadow - a favourite look from my teens!
Proof of the kind of winds we were dealing with here! I've never had so many 'out-takes' from one set of photos...Nor so many grumpy looks on my wind-beaten face!
As you can see I'm still currently growing out my fringe, well actually - my hair in its entirety is being grown! A little project for 2014 if you will!
Channeling some Geisha vibes with clean white tights and black suede wedges. I love how clean cut they look paired with the dress!
So with 2014 in mind, do any of you have any New Years resolutions? I have five which are all pretty simple.
1. Save a bit of money (I have been more specific but I won't bore you with the details!)
2. Visit London monthly (Living in Brighton can be a bit like a bubble sometimes, I need to venture out and explore more!)
3. Learn to cook new dishes (I love to cook and would love to try something new)
4. Stay in better contact with friends (I'm pretty awful at emails/texting etc!)
And finally, my last resolution is to work on a new website that started to come to fruition last Summer. The content of which I'm going to be tight lipped about right now, but I am very excited!
I have set myself some achievable targets to help get the ball rolling, then I'm sure it'll be much like this blog (which by the way will still be going!) - a delight to produce!
I'm looking forward to sharing it with you, along with the labours of my other resolutions!
Happy New Year everyone!
Love Yours Truly, x
