Drop waists and pinstripes

Hello 2016! I hope you all had the best Christmas and New Year's Eve. We spend so long anticipating   this time of year and it seems to pass us by in a flash. I had the best time but I'm kind of ready to resume to normal life now, including four very wonderful days of work to recuperate! 

Last week I went for a post Christmas catch up with one of my closet girls, Lauren (Lozza to me). We    shot this look and then proceeded to eat too much cheese. I mean we were both pretty poorly afterwards. But I'd do it all again in the name of cheese.

I've been living in this drop waist dress from ASOS White, and I've come to conclude that drop waists are a tall girls best friend. Super flattering, black, with a v neck and crimped edges, scoring lots of lazy girl points for me.

My Daniel Wellington watch hasn't left my wrist since it arrived. You can't go wrong when its silver paired with black leather, it literally compliments everything. Especially a lot of my jewellery. When I went back to work after Christmas I felt all kinds of naked without it. 
The leather strap is incredible, I adore the crocodile effect. You can shop my watch with 15% off when you enter "DWRopesofholland" at the checkout! You're welcome!

This pinstripe wonder is also by ASOS and has travelled all over with me recently. The stand up collar is what I like most about it, and the contrast of the grey with the navy blue. Amazing.

So my obsession with Missoma jewellery isn't coming to come to an end any time soon and my favourite pieces are firmly around my neck and wrist. They very rarely come off and have worn so well.

As usual I'm wearing my favourite bag ever, by Anya Hindmarch  which is now back in stock! And my very special, metallic shoes are the Adriana trainers by Acne, which I cannot stop wearing. To be honest for the first few wears my feet were screaming, but now I've worn them in, they're perfect.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I'm spending mine with my other half, family and cups of tea.
