January is finally over. It always feels like such a long month for many reasons - the end of Christmas/New Year celebrations, the return to the school routine, having no money and realising that another year has flown by and we are all just getting older! So what next...... well February of course! We are nearly 2 weeks into the shortest month of the year already, and that's crazy! But I'm now starting to think about new clothes I want to buy for the spring and intrigues to see what trends are going to come around this year.
So after some internet window shopping, I've made my February wishlist.
Taking centre stage in my wishlist this month is a lovely red body piece from Yours to celebrate Valentines Day. It's got a plunging neckline, lots of gorgeous lace and a cut out on the back to give it all you need to look and feel sexy. Also from Yours is this lovely bird print dress. Skater dresses are still my favourite style of dress for my body shape, and this could easily look lovely dressed up or down.
Boots are great in any season, and I loved the look of these Chelsea boots with buckle detail. They would go nicely with dress but I love wearing my boots with skinny jeans or leggings also. Having the jeans/jeggings taper down to the ankle and then a nice chunky boot is my favourite look, and these berry jeggings from Evans are one of my favourite colours. I love the combination of burgundy and black together.
Out of my comfort zone is the floral print sweatshirt from Simply Be, but it is something that I think I would grown to love. Again, team it with a nice pair of skinny jeans and some boots, or even the pink trainers from Evans, and I think it's something casual but with a little something extra.
I'm trying to expand the pattern content in my wardrobe as I have noticed that most things are either black or just very plain. Even the little zip pocket detail on this top from Dorothy Perkins is a nice little touch to dress up a plain black shirt.
