Pink Satin Off The Shoulder Top & A New Year

posted on: Monday, January 2, 2017

Is it just me (or this pink satin off the shoulder top) that makes this year really feel like a fresh one?

Black & pink style outfit from Boohoo.

Wearing: Boohoo pink satin off the shoulder top,* Boohoo slash leg denim jeggings,* Boohoo mule slingback wedge,* Dylan Kain Birkin belt, Minskat Copenhagen Mira bag, ZeroUV aviator sunglasses*

I remember sitting in the end of school assemblies during my years at primary school & thinking “I can’t believe the year’s finally over. At this rate, I’ll never make it to 13”, & now at the end of every year, all I can think of is how much faster time seems to pass & how “at this rate, I’ll never be able to start my own colony on Gliese 581-d” because you know, I’ll most likely be dead before I even leave this solar system & also because I seem to think I achieve so much less as each year goes by.


Which isn’t really fair because I think we become so much more critical of ourselves as we get older. So with that being said, I think it’s pretty appropriate that my new years resolution* is to plan ahead & follow through with things. What are your resolutions for kicking 2017 in the ass?


I don’t usually say things like this on my blog since it seems to have evolved into a mostly sarcastic & somewhat cynical place but I’m truly eternally grateful for all the visitors to this little spot on the world wide web (even the haters who provide me with amusement) for your support & making me want to keep following through with things & I wish you all the amazing things for 2017. Happy New Year!





*But remember, we don’t need to wait for a new year, or the start of another week or a sign from above to start getting our shit together. Let’s start doing things now instead of waiting for the perfect moment.

New Year’s Resolution?

    You look so beautiful in this off should satin top ensemble! It makes me really excited for warmer weather to come! I’m hoping that we don’t get anymore snow this year because I’m really over freezing my butt off =P

  • haha I know what you mean, as we get older it feels like the pressure becomes more and more overwhelming. When I was younger it seemed like there was so much to achieve and so much potential to do so, but as every year passed it was a disappointing realisation that these things happened at a much slower rate than I thought and I changed course so many times. I didn’t make a new year resolution but my goal (in general) is to keep on being productive and motivated, but at the same time let life guide me and to trust its judgment!

    Hope you’ve been having a wonderful new year so far. Keep up the great work with your blogging (which you’re doing incredibly with by the way!) 🙂

  • Happy new year lovely! I’m back again from my little winter pause. Haha I think pink is the best to start off the new year – it’s fresh and it looks great on you! <3 Oh yes, I think so too, we become more and more critical – why is that? I don't know. But I hope this trend will fade again 😉 We should be proud of ourselves with no strings attached. These shoes by the way! <3

    Much love,

  • adorable!!!

  • When you have haters, you know you’ve made it! Hahah. I love the energy, thought and skill you put into your blog, Shannon – I’m sure the elaborate content didn’t just sprout out of nowhere, so you’re quite the talent! The simplicity in your outfit styling is also an inspiration to me. The photography is on point and I can only say that 2017 will have you slaying it on various fronts even more. Of course, being a sarcastic cynic is a skill too, so please, please be you! <3 <3

    I’ve definitely become more cynical as the years have passed and as I try to go after things–the world really can be tough. But I think it’s cool that you don’t try to hide that. Your upfront with it! That aside, you’re gonna totally rock your 2017 goals like you’re rocking that gorge top. Love love love it!

  • That top is definitely lovely and fresh! I didn’t really set any resolutions for the year, but planning ahead and following through sound like pretty great ideas!
