The first week of January always seems to be the slowest week ever and I really can't wait until the weekend again (oh lie in's and proper breakfasts!). After taking a mini break at Christmas from the blog, where I didn't read many blogs or draft any new posts, it's now time to refocus. Truth be told, the blog has taken a back seat in the last couple of months and I'm keen to get into more regular blogging because I've realised that I quite enjoy reading random blog posts. It's actually my 7th year of blogging which is insane. I can't believe I've kept this blog for so long! I still remember the day when I excitedly told my housemates at university that instead of writing the dissertation one evening, I'd set up this blog. It's funny how things can change but the blog has stayed a constant.

So here is the first outfit of the year! I picked up this pink coat from the Petite range at Next way back in October and I'm pretty sure it ended up in their Christmas sales. It's very pink, very tartan and definitely girly and not the type of coat that I usually go for. Hopefully the boots, beanie and awesome new bag toughen it up a little (sorta). I've pretty much taken to wearing this combination a lot lately - the beanie and boots have barely left my side over the last month or so. Just so, so comfy!

  14. wow 7 years is amazing! have you been on the same blog URL? I've been blogging for 10+ years but I've had a lot of domains and livejournal accounts. I never could stick with one. I've had pyreflies.org for almost 3 years but just started the.pyreflies.org last year in May. I am really loving it and hope to never stop :D

  15. Just thought I'd let you know I'm pretty obsessed with your blog. You've done an incredible job with it! Congratulations on reaching 7 years :)

  16. Thanks Carolyn! I don't own any bright coloured coats so this one is a really fun addition to my wardrobe :)

  17. Haha deal Sam! I have just got into some bad habits so hopefully we'll both get back into the blogging game! Yessss those boots are the best and definitely chunky enough for the snow - though I think you'd be hard pressed for any snow unless you go back 'home' to Canada!

  18. I know 7 yrs is kind of crazy! I don't know how I've managed to keep it going but I have and still like updating it. Good luck with your blog too - I can't wait to read more :)

  19. Woo hoo for 6 yrs of blogging. It's kind of crazy that we've been 'online' for so long huh? Thanks for the coat and Kenzo bag love :D x

  20. Thank you! It's definitely something I've been struggling with - from posting 3/4 times a week at the very beginning to now 1x a week...hopefully I can bring this back up to 2 per week. I'd really like to get stuck in again :)

  21. Thanks Sandra! 6 years is incredible so well done to you too - it's great having a place to kind of refer to and see how our styles change. I can't imagine not blogging to be honest!

  22. I've always had the same URL - so you can scroll right back to 2008 if you so wished (though I don't recommend this as it was a completely different 'take' on the blog with not so great photography) 10+ years is incredible! I wonder if I will be blogging as long! Who knows?

  30. Wow 7 years of blogging, that is amazing! I started blogging about 7 years ago too when I was on maternity leave but have changed my blog since then. Love the pink coat, it looks so cosy and the new bag looks fab with it.

  31. Yeah my blog has changed a lot since I first started and have been tempted to delete old posts but it's kind of fun to see how I've changed over the years! It's great to be able to say we've blogged for this long right? Thanks for the lovely comment Ceri!

  32. It's mad, it's given me something to focus on for a long time, and has only been a good thing. Heck, I'm managed to start something full time from nothing. Not much of a job but it's certainly an achievement.
