Apologies, apologies, I have been suffering from post Christmas/New Year fatigue. Lost in that bubble of chaos which exists of empty bottles (a rather significant amount here seeing as we had 20 for dinner on NYE), mounds of washing, feral kids and deChristmassing (I appreciate that isn't a word but it really should be) the house. Slowly. I have to keep asking a child what day it is. How on earth I'm going to get up on Monday for the school run - I have no idea. (I'm assuming they go back on Monday. I don't even know that. Woeful) Every year I emerge into the New Year from a fog.
But with no further ado, I'm so chuffed to reveal the newest addition to my wardrobe. My new Michael Kors watch from The Husband. A rose gold MK5128. I am so so pleased, have wanted one for eons. Now on the hunt for some rose gold bracelets to go with it. I appreciate they're not everyones cup of tea - The Husband is infinitely bemused as to why I'd want to replace a Cartier with a Michael Kors. Every now and again, a change is as good as a rest and so I am fortunate enough to have two watches to switch between.

Fashion wise, I also got a fantastic, statement necklace from my mother in law. Very handy as I don't have much jewellery of a silver note and this will look great with a plain tee, jeans, little blazer and ballet pumps in the spring (a standard go to every day outfit for me if you haven't worked that out by now) Ideally boyfriend jeans. Which I will discuss in further detail at a later date...
Hopefully you all got a gem or two for Christmas, would love to hear your favourite.
Quickly reporting on my sales deliveries. Well as much as I had high hopes for my Reiss delivery (I am beyond impressed with their customer service & delivery though - fantastic and ridiculously quick for a) free delivery and b) over a weekend and a holiday one at that), I am partly pleased that it was an unmitigated disaster.
My tapered trousers were less cutting edge than I'd anticipated and more M&S elasticated waist, polyester nightmares. Mum trousers circa 1981. Wrong. Wrong wrong wrong.
The sequin jacket at a push, I could have made work I think. But it was sat on that fence of vintage looking cool and cruise ship singer. Gah. Had I not got two sequin jackets sat in my wardrobe, I possibly would have kept it, as for £118 the quality is exquisite. But the money has gone back in the coffers. And polish halo.
Still waiting for Zara and Massimo Dutti but they've both been dispatched apparently. Yippee. Ooh and my River Island Jacket arrived. A bargain at now £25. I would say whilst it appears to be of good quality, the fact that after one night out in the pub, I came home minus an entire piece of beaded trim would possibly belie that fact. However they were a rather interesting shade of electric blue and I think the jacket may actually be improved without them. Very pleased.
So finishing with a quick round up of what I've been wearing the last couple of days. Now, huge confession to make, there is no outfit pic from NYE. But it was exactly the same - and I mean completely identical to the one I wore on Christmas Day - the truly wonderful Gok Wan black half peplum dress from Sainsburys. A dress I am beyond pleased with.
I have absolutely no idea what day we're on. These are from just before NYE to the day before yesterday. Slobarama mostly.
