Day One.

 DRESS FROM DAHLIA | BLOUSE FROM YUMI | SHOES FROM DR MARTENS*

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone's celebrations went according to plan. Our party was a resounding success, and pretty much everyone slept in until lunchtime! Once we were all up and dressed we drove over to a local beach with some family friends. We built a fire, roasted chestnuts, had a barbecue and wrote our hopes and wishes for 2013 onto a lantern that we launched into the sky.

I wore this new dress from Dahlia. It was reduced from around £60 to £30, and since my size was the last left in stock I couldn't resist treating myself! I'm a little late on the bandwagon with tapestry fabrics, but oh well. We've still got a good few cold months ahead of us, so I'll have plenty of opportunities to wear it. I teamed it with a contrast blouse from Yumi (you can't tell from these photos, but it has super cute mismatched buttons), my beautiful Dr Martens and a sweet vintage brooch.

How have you spent your first day of 2013?

  6. That sounds like a lovely afternoon. I spent mine studying the History of Art during the Middle Age, which is - at least for me - a great way to spend an afternoon, too!
    I love your dress and your blouse and pretty much everything you're wearing!
