All Black Everything





Coat: H&M (similar) // Jumper: Joanie Clothing // Jeans: Topshop (similar) // Boots: Topshop

Well, hello strangers! I can't believe it's been a whole month since I last blogged, the longest I've ever gone since starting it. Truth is, I've been getting frustrated; mainly feeling like I've lost my fashion mojo and getting angry at my very old and basic camera (savings for a new one are getting there). I was stressing myself out and had to take a little hiatus. I missed it though, and I've got to remind myself now and again that progress takes time, so for now I need to chill out, throw on some garms and just enjoy doing what I can whilst striving to improve. So here we are, my first outfit post of 2017 and first post of 2017 full stop. I can do this! 

To match this grey weekend, I unleashed my dark side with this all-black get-up. Firstly, I have succumbed to the wily ways of social media influence. I have seen Joanie Clothing on all my fave bloggers and it worked on me fo' sure. After a browse on their sight, I fell in love with Joanie's vintage vibes and had to purchase this gorgeous 'maybe baby' jumper (along with a t-shirt that's coming to this blog in the not too distant future!). Sassy slogan + snuggly = a winner of a knitwear piece. I also picked up these uh-mazing embellished jeans in the Topshop sale (yes, sale! High five me!). Again enticed by social media (the lure of the Facebook ad to be precise) I was on Topshop.com and buying these denim delights before I could say 'monochrome'. 

Finally, you can never have too many shoes, right?! RIGHT, exactly what I thought, hence why I bought these gorgeous ankle boots. They're so comfy, however I did need to size up even more than usual with these as they did come up small. I'm not too mad though as they are pretty super. I'm a big fan of the higher and more fitted ankle - I think they just look a bit 'neater' under jeans and with tights.

Today's grey weather certainly wasn't the kinda weather I enjoy in winter. I'm hoping for a bit more frost and a lot less rain to come this week!
