Double Leopard


Leopard Blouse: JDY via ASOS

It's the middle of January and Blue Monday, what a killer combination. I'm currently sat on the train on my way to a blog shoot that almost got rained off (thanks very much gale force winds and torrential rain, good old British weather), and I'm trying very hard to be positive but I find it so hard in January. I keep having to remind myself that this wintery cold period won't last forever, and better days are yet to come. Last night we just booked a little getaway to Italy at the beginning of Feb, back to Rome (I LOVE Rome, it's beautiful) and I'm now counting down the days.

I'm not usually a leopard print kind of girl, I've had these boots forever and worn them like twice, three times? I love the shape of them though. My perfect boot shape. I need these boots in every colour basically. I do find it harder to style patterned boots, as I love patterned clothing and prefer to stick to more neutral boot colours, but who couldn't resist a bit of double leopard print? This blouse looks great with denim or white jeans as it does suede, and I love the cut out neck detail and flared sleeves, making it look that little bit more expensive than it was (£18!).

Hello January


Paisley Tunic and Flares: Waiste Vintage

Ah, new year, new me and all that. Not quite, well kind of. Surely you should be trying to better yourself as a person 365 days of the year? Anyway, I'm not one to make resolutions, one because I never manage to ever keep them and two, I write them down and end up losing them anyway.

But one thing I do want to do this year though is really push myself with blogging and writing. With opening my vintage shop last year, I've found it so hard to find the balance between the two, and my blog to a back seat. Honestly it is so much HARD WORK to open your own shop, more than I envisioned to be honest, I knew it wouldn't be easy but it's been incredibly stressful and successful in equal measures. Especially when you can't afford to employ anyone to start with and you're working 16 days in a row, and it's even harder when you struggle and do need someone but it's your baby and you find it hard to let someone else take control.


 I have definitely come to realise I am not a people person(!) and it's not as creative as I thought it would be to have a shop, I much prefer shooting and styling (and blogging) so this year I am going to take a step back from being on the shop floor and focus my energy on blogging and my vintage website instead. I want to give this blog a complete over haul, with the design and posts, and create some really great content, sometimes I really struggle with coming up for ideas for blog posts and content, so if you want to see anything on here, please let me know in the comments below!
