I know that 2016 hasn’t been great for most people, amongst other things, I was deeply saddened by the passing of David Bowie in January, a man who inspired me so much and whose music I have loved for years, but wanted to look at 2016 in a more positive light in this post.
This year, I got a job, gained three Bs in my A-levels, got interviews for university and have grown my blog and social media so much. I really only started taking my blog and social media seriously in April, especially for fashion-related posts and have worked with some incredible brands since then; some of which I never thought would want to work with me! I have also come into myself so much as a person, developed my personal style more and gained so much confidence. I met my best friend Beka in October, bought myself a Kate Spade bag with my Christmas bonus and have spent so much time with my family, which has been lovely.
I’ve been loving the Teddy Coats worn by some of my favourite bloggers including Lizzy and Alice, and found this one for a bargain on Depop- AKA my fave app. I love the texture and oversized fit of it as well as the colour; it is such a versatile piece. I wore it with my beloved Dahlia Jade dress, which is no longer available but everything else they do is just as beautiful. With a coat which is so oversized, the pairing of the A-line dress works very well to avoid looking like a big bundle. FYI, there is nothing wrong with looking like a bundle, if that’s what you’re into then you roll with it.
