Necklace: Dorothy Perkins
Hello everyone, and happy new year! I failed to take any pictures of my actual NYE outfit, so here’s my first outfit of the new year instead. Matalan is not a shop I usually go to as it’s not in the city centre so I always forget about it, but I had a voucher to spend so made the effort to go a couple of weeks ago. One of the things I got was this dress, which was a total bargain at £10. My wardrobe seems to be lacking in nice casual clothes at the moment, so I thought this dress would be perfect with some ankle boots and a cosy jacket for a daytime winter outfit. I’m trying to wean myself off wearing black all the time and this dark red floral print is a good stepping stone towards – shock horror – wearing bright colours.
These boots have done me well (I think they must be about 6 or 7 years old by now) but sadly they’re looking a bit worse for wear now. I’ve had a hunt through the sales online for a replacement and I quite like these Office boots, may have to spend some of my Christmas money on a pair! I also want a slightly sturdier pair of boots for days when the weather is not so nice – perhaps something like these? Have you found any nice shoes in the sales?
