Goodbye Christmas, Hello Fresh Start!

// Fur Gilet: Vintage //
// Burgundy Fedora Hat: Topshop //
// Frilly Socks: Topshop //
// Platform Chelsea Boots: Missguided // 

Hello everyone! Happy NEW YEAR!
I wanted to take this opportunity to take an outfit post next to my Christmas tree before it gets taken down today! Boohoo, Christmas has been done and dusted faaaar too quickly this year.
Also I really don't feel like going and taking pictures in the rain!
I'd like to hold on a little while long to the festivities inside my house please! 

Mainly I wanted to share with you my new gorgeous high neck swing dress from Boohoo!
Isn't it lush? 
I got this beauty for Christmas along with the burgundy fedora hat I have been eyeing up in Topshop for weeks. 
I'd never really thought about looking on Boohoo for dresses as I usually end up buying from ASOS, Missguided or Topshop, however, I was spoilt for choice when spying through the smocks available on Boohoo.. seriously you must go look, such reasonable prices too! 
I was drawn in by the high neck style of this dress and the bold vintage paisley print. 
I  knew I had to have this dress when I was already planning this outfit in my head.. 
I'm now searching for another fur gilet, preferably a black one as I seem to be wearing this one to the death! 
In other news:
I can't believe I start my business course in London on Tuesday - OH MY.
I feel like I have been counting down the days till this moment for a good 8 months now.. This actually could be the start of my first career.. ahhh!
I'm going to be a real life commuter, the thought of early mornings is killing me but I'm also super duper excited and nervous all the same.
PLUS.. I'm going to have to carefully think up an outfit for everyday now.. as my attire needs to be smart / casual - HELP!

Is everyone having a great start to their new year?
I am currently still nursing my hangover from New Year, feeling very fragile and craving lots of orange juice!
