January Favourites

The lights have come down, the tree’s been taken to be composted and all the Christmas magic is gone. It’s January and time to embrace the real winter. Here are my favourite things for the month where we try to stay positive.

January Obsessions

January’s almost over. I’m wearing the same boots, same hat and mittens, and one of two winter coats outside everyday. Winter can get pretty boring and repetitive. That’s why I like to fill the apartment with colour and always have a little something special peeking out from under my coat. Here are all the winter brights and pastels I can’t get enough of this month:

1. Pretty Pastel Stripe Skirt
