Urg, January! How hard it is to hold on to any semblance of body positivity in the cacophony of new year new you bullshit. Television is choked with dieting adverts, social media feeds are full of self deprecating memes about being a fat fucker, and everywhere people are being smug about sticking to their resolutions, or self flagellating for not managing to do so. It takes a lot to hold on to any sense of normality in this tsunami of bullshit. Not because making change is in any way a bad thing, but because of the nonsense moral value that is ascribed to making certain changes. As though anyone not doggedly chasing societal depictions of the perfect body, skin, hair, diet is some sort of deviant, delinquent aberration. The horrifying "Before" shot, to be avoided at all costs. Urg! Enough!

How to blend them with your existing wardrobe and make them your own. I've taken this PU skirt from Elvi, a rather modern piece, and made it something wearable for me.

What's more fun than an end of year round up? So we still have a little while to go before we head into 2017, but to be honest 2016 was a bit of a fucker for me personally (and for the world, obvs), so I am kinda ready to put this bitch behind me. And what better way than to celebrate my fave outfits from the last 12 months!

November was a bit of an odd month. I spent a good chunk of it on holiday in the Caribbean (which was amazing! See what I wore here) and then returned to a pretty chilly London, and by the end of the month I was ready to get festive! Check out what I wore (and my Christmas tree!) below...
