2017 – A Year In Clothing

2017 has been and gone and a new year is suddenly upon us. Last year has been full of many ups and downs for me. I started my Masters degree at Northumbria, I have met people who will change my life forever and I have left some people behind. 2017 was the year where I really tried to figure myself out, I focused on my weight loss, education and loving myself.

I have come out of 2017 a much more positive person and let’s hope 2018 brings amazing things.

The one thing that has changed over the last couple of years is my style. I have always been very much into my fashion from a young age, I always wanted to look different and quirky. I have said goodbye to vintage and preppy clothing and my style has really come in on its own. I feel happy and confident.

Here is a quick look at some of my favourite looks over 2017.

Travel | Fashion | New York | What I wore

As you can see in my previous post, New York was an amazing experience. Looking back at my outfits is just making me miss New York more and more. Especially with the grim, rainy weather back in London, it was nice to finally get some summer gear on and free my legs of tights. With it officially being summer in the UK, it may be time to get the holiday clothes out on show.

So here is what I wore in NY:

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love a good pinafore/dungaree dress, so it was inevitable I was going to bring one along to NY. I love this look, it’s so easy to pull off and can easily be dressed up with a big, black hat and some nice, high, chunky-healed boots. I am a little bit in love with stripes at the minute, as it can really make a simple outfit stand out. I teamed this outfit with a red bag and red lipstick to really make the whole piece pop, and I do love a bit of red to make me stand out.

My next look was this pretty, floral dress by ASOS. I saved this dress especially for New York and it was perfect for the weather. I wore this dress to go to a Broadway show and then to a roof-top bar. The floaty sleeves, high neck and pattern clashes, really make the dress. I teamed this dress with my all-time favourite 70s style boots from Topshop (that I got my cheeky 60% staff uniform discount off). You can’t see in the photographs but they have a beautiful tortoiseshell effect on the heel, which really makes them unusual and eye-catching.

I really like this outfit, I am a massive fan of red. I was always wary of red because of being a natural ginger, but who knew, red really looks good on a ginger! At first I felt, self conscious in this dress because I never wear low neck lines. I have quite large chest that I like to keep hidden, but I plucked up the courage and bought this plunging neck-line wrap dress – and  boy I am glad I did! It was a rubbish day weather wise in New York, so I opted for tights and my all-time favourite denim jacket. I live in this jacket –  the Planet Hollywood logo on the front and back really make this jacket stand out from the others.

Both the off-the-shoulder top and ripped Lucas jeans are from Topshop. I am really loving the off the shoulder look, it’s great for showing a little bit of skin when you want to. However in my case, I got some pretty bad sun burn when wearing this top… I am also loving Topshop’s Lucas jeans – these are my second pair. They are mom/boyfriend style without being too baggy. I really recommend the black pair, I never take them off!
