My wardrobe isn't very winter wonderland, as most of you guys can probably guess. Rainbow crop tops, snazzy sunglasses, off the shoulder dresses, glittery mermaid jeans and little strappy sandals may be a fashion blogger's best friend, but they ain't exactly favourable with Jack Frost. When Romwe kindly got in touch and asked me to choose a piece from their collection, I decided to go for something stylish yet practical for sub-zero skylines, opting for this V Neck Lattice Ribbed T-Shirt. It's cosy and casual, and just the thing I'd rock for a Starbucks date or a Saturday shopping spree. I paired it with my favourite pink and purple checked scarf, which I picked up in Primark last year and my Topshop gingham jeans.
My intention was to take a bit of a break from blogging in December but it seems I skipped the whole damn month and now look, it's January. I've missed blogging so much but the time just hasn't been right to post and to be honest, it's been nice not having to stress over everything I do stress about when it comes to blogging (long list). Most of you will know I had a nasty chest infection that I couldn't shift for weeks; I've never felt worse, they really do suck. My festive season was spent feeling rubbish and these past few weeks I've been focusing on (finally, finally) getting on with my book, spending January editing the second part of the novel, which I'm still in the midst of. My goal is to have my first book written by summer 2017, and ready to send off shortly after.
I'm so done with not being able to shoot decent summery pictures for the blog; can anyone else relate? I hate not being able to get as creative as I want to when the lighting and general forecast is frazzled. I feel so powerless without being able to really have the freedom to shoot, and it's been killing me lately! I know there's a brighter season coming up, and Spring will be blooming through it before we know it. Graham and I are also going to be doing a blog shoot that I'm really excited about and am keeping everything crossed it works out. We've postponed it several times because I was too ill back over New Year and let's just say the outfit is pretty unsociable for this season, so I need to be 100% before we shoot in the thaw. We've struck lucky several times with the weather tho, and I've got several style shoots I'm super excited to share with you guys in the meanwhile. Clue: one is full of glittery, mermaidy vibes....

How do you feel about shooting in the winter?
Has anyone got any tropical holidays booked?
