New Year for me is less about partying the night away (I’ll be happy at home in my pjs) and more about an afternoon glass of fizz in the pub and maybe a walk on New Year’s Day.  Tartan seems to be a fitting way of dressing …

What I’m wearing (pub): Denim jacket: Zara | Skirt: Mango | Bag: Moroccan Bazaar | Boots: Mosquitos

(walk): Fur jacket: vintage | Top: Pink Flame UK | Trousers: H&M | Bag: Rip Curl | Boots: Clarks

After days of traipsing round every independent boutique within a five mile radius, and countless hours trawling the internet in search of something unique to wear to an evening do, I finally found the perfect frock in Coast on the high street. It was so flattering that even if five other people were wearing the same dress I didn’t care. I knew that with the right accessories I could make my look individual. So after an LDN:Skins spray tan at Margot (@margot_london), a Bio Sculpture gel manicure by Kate (@NailsByKate_N8) and a fab blow dry by Marguerite at Organic Hair Co I was ready to accessorise and go. What do you think?

What I’m wearing: Dress: Coast | Shoes: Next | Bag: House of Fraser | Bracelet: Tiffany | Earrings: Next | Ring: Oliver Bonas

It gave me the chance to wear my new distressed jeans from Zara and another new sweater from @LazariClothing in Crouch End which is fast becoming my favourite local store for neutral basics.  The hand painted belt is by Marion Cheung who can be found on Facebook at Marion Cheung Fine Art Paintings
