New Year, New Wardrobe

I like to refresh a lot of things when a new year rolls around. New bedding, new desktop wallpaper, new diary... nothing major, just a few little changes to freshen things up a bit. My wardrobe is definitely on the list of things that need a bit of change injected into them, but as per usual my bank account disagrees. If I could throw out the majority of my clothes and start all over again, I would, but instead, I'm trying to focus on a handful of pieces that will add some new blood whilst also fitting in with what I already have and allowing for a bit of flexibility.

2016 was the year I discovered how much I love a good pair of trousers, so it's understandable that a few pairs have caught my eye. I'm really liking the casual-yet-pulled-together combination of tailored trousers, a casual tee and a pair of trainers. So easy to wear and pretty comfy (depending on how much I've eaten at the time, anyway) but still looking a little bit more polished than my usual early morning uniform of leggings and big baggy jumpers. I really fancy a pair of relaxed leather look trousers and already have the perfect outfit in mind for them.

My colour palette of choice hasn't changed much, with blush, grey and black still making regular appearances. I have been noticing a few more prints catching my eye recently, though, with a newly reignited love for leopard print starting to take over. I've always loved leopard print accessories, an obsession that was sparked by a pair of leopard print moccasins from New Look about five years ago, but I'm also loving more statement pieces now like jackets and shirts. I've seen a few people wearing the most beautiful leopard print culottes about in Glasgow and I need them in my life, but I cannot find them for the life of me. It's getting a bit annoying now as, like the leather trousers, I have the perfect outfit in mind featuring them! The hunt continues...
