Daytime Sequins - The Last Blog of 2013

So the eagle eyed among you will have spotted that I'm not wearing actual sequins, just a sequin illusion. Still, I like a good contrast and daytime sequins is the best kind, especially for the festive season.

Being the last blog post of 2013 it feels right to wear a bit of glam, particularly because my great plans to welcome in the new year consist mainly of sitting on the sofa with a curry. Either way, it's New Year's Eve and you've got to wear a bit or sparkle, even if that means teaming with stomach-expansion trousers (leggings) whilst spilling tikka masala down yourself. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

In classic Hannah fashion, I spotted the Boohoo #DRESSMAS competition when it was first announced and I thought, why yes, I would like to enter this competition. I also thought it'd be good to actually get an OOTN here on the blog too as I haven't before.

So of course, I don't get my outfit snaps done on any of those weekends where the sun has been shining, instead I wait until the last day of the competition when the rain and wind has turned up in full force. Needless to say, taking these pictures was quite a sorry experience and I felt quite the prat dressed up to the nines at 11am on a Sunday.

So anyway, this is my #DRESSMAS entry. This outfit is what I've got earmarked for my Christmas party. It's not a look I'd usually go for, simply because bodycon is really quite unforgiving but it's Christmas and I'll be wearing it, food baby or not.

Bow & Vans

What with Christmas preoccupation and 70% darkness, my blogging has fallen by the wayside a little. Plus, after getting sent a pair of sheepskin boots at work, I've hardly taken them off my feet. While I think it is possible to make UGG boots work in a fashion sense, they're not really fashion blog fodder.

Apologies if that makes me sound like a douchebag, it's just that I know there's a lot of hate when it comes to UGGs and I just want to make friends!

Anyway, back to the point. When I'm not wearing my toasty-feet-makers I've been loving sporty styles. Saying that, these 'sporty' Vans are about half a size too big, so if I try to run in them they end up flapping about in a very unbecoming way.

This bow blouse has featured here before because it is quite simply one of the best vintage finds ever. It really does photograph like a dream (second douchebag statement).
