Burgundy Cardigan - Suzy Shier
Lace Shirt - Sirens
Shorts - Motel/ASOS
Tights - ???
Platform Heels - Aldo

The past two NYEs have been, frankly, fashion bummers. 2010 was stylish, but super uncomfortable. A constricting sequinned top and uncomfortable high waist shorts. With tights, of course. You know, for warmth and extra uncomfortablness. Whilst last year was comfortable but so... not stylish. A particularly ugly, unflatteringly oversized cardigan and black jeans. Black jeans, fine, good even. Completely stretched out cardigan with a crew neck? No. This year, I wanted to try to do something that could encompass both factors, fashion and comfort.

 I paired my lace shirt from Sirens (contrasting the colour with a black bra) with my new Motel shorts. I bought them in November on sale and they've become a staple in my wardrobe recently, absolutely love them! Super short shorts are my favourite, no matter if it's summer or winter. I may not be the skinniest girl in the land and I don't have perfect legs, but they always make me feel fab.

I added my burgundy cardigan from Suzy Shier to make the outfit a tad more casual (and warm) and wore my Aldo platforms heels to add a bit of height, or rather, almost 6 inches of it. And I can't, for the life of me, remember where my tights are from and they have no tags. Drives me mental as they're the most comfortable black tights I've had since.... ever, really!

Overall, I think I achieved what I set out to.
