Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a lovely festive break. I had a quiet celebration with my family and was in bed by 11pm on New Year’s Eve. Gone are the days when I’d stay up well into the small hours of January 1st, but that’s fine by me. I’m now 20 weeks pregnant and my growing bump is limiting my sartorial choices.

Happy New Year

My boots are from Miista.
