Bag: Chanel mini 'Boy'.

A chunky aran knit jumper is a classic winter staple. I wear mine slightly oversized so it has that "borrowed from my boyfriend" vibe. I decided to double the 'chunk' and added the chunky Juicy Couture necklace aka my new favorite accessory.

Sandals: Saint Laurent (get the look here).

The Saint Laurent 'Jane' sandal is simple sophistication at it's very best. I had to have them- they reminded me of the first pair of proper high heels that I ever bought.... They too were a single strap sandal with a square front. I got them from Miss Selfridges in Croydon and I was 16 :)

The ultimate lazy girl outfit: black on black on black with more black. 

The jeans I'm wearing are possibly my favorite pair. They're the TopShop 'Jamie' skinnies. The fit on these is 'skinny' but with just the right amount of stretch and they have a slightly higher then average waist. I find a high waist to be much more flattering and um... forgiving. Especially post christmas ;)

The boy and I drove out to Palm Springs for new year's eve celebrations. It's almost obligatory to stop for a photo shoot when you drive through the desert ;)
