How many sleepy heads are heading back to work today after the festive break?

As I'm forever chirpy in the mornings, imagine me trilling a 'GOOD MORRRNING' and twirling about holding a bucket of coffee until both ends of your lips lift a centimetre or three. A smile makes all the difference - and if all else fails, there's the caffeine to bathe yourself in.

I know the 4th of January means looking forward rather than peeking back, but a quick browse through the archives meant I rediscovered these snaps from mid-September. My beautiful pal Mae took these and it would be a shame to not share these with you! There's two more outfits to post - and I promise you'll fall in love with her photography as much as I have... hence why I'd drag her out at lunchtimes to help shoot these.

I go weak at the knees for a cold shouldered piece; I've stealthily been adding more and more to my wardrobe over the past year. It's ideal for a day-to-night transition, it's feminine and eliminates the need for excess accessories as the statement cut speaks for itself. Saying that, I'm also a jewellery fiend so I can never resist a necklace buffet - and we all know how much I like a good buffet.

This little number was less than £5 from a market in China, though it cost me even less as I swiped it from my sister. There's a ton of cold-shoulder dresses on the high street, and ASOS is brimming with hundreds of them. This is the most similar one I've found.

I hope you all have the most amazing day.

Don't let the January blues catch you!


  1. I'm glad to see you back blogging Shu! This post has got me thinking about warmer weather, darn this cold snap!

  2. This is such a cute piece! I can't believe it was less than £5, I would probably end up paying at least £20 for one exactly the same from Topshop. It look gorgeous on you! Nice shoes too x
