Spots for the New Year

A New Year has begun , my how time flies, what really happened to 2015 it seems like no time at all
since it started and now it is over.With this thought in mind I am determined to make the most of every
minute and enjoy whatever comes my way and live my life to the full in my own way.

I have always loved the playful nature of spots, I am convinced they bring the inner child to the surface again.
I have had this black and white spotty Summer coat for some time but this is its first Summer outing as our
weather has been rather hot, so with today’s cool change it came out to play.Pairing the coat with my red
vintage cap, a mixture of red and black and white bangles and black pants.

Red shoes from Fly London , purchased locally, complete the look. I love the style of these sandals with their lacing at the back.If you look closely you can see a fly embossed on the left shoe.

Wishing everyone all the best for a wonderful 2016.
