“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks your wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art -write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. But most of all, I hope that somewhere in the next year, your surprise yourself.” –
Neil Gaiman

So this is my very last outfit post of 2013. Can you believe how quickly this year has flown by? I went for a drive to a nearby town with my parents this morning and just couldn’t resist taking some photos near this blue door. I got this Dogtooth Two-Piece from Chicwish just before Christmas and have already worn the skirt & top separately, but couldn’t wait to wear them together too. I will just always love this print!

I’m in the middle of preparing my ‘2013 in review’ post (which will be live tomorrow) and it’s been so nice to look back on all the different events & opportunities this year has brought with it. It has, undoubtedly, been a fantastic year and I couldn’t be more grateful for everything.  I’m excited for a fresh start once again and the quote above is one I’ll be hanging on my wall for sure. The end of it just gets me every single time because, for me, that’s what a new year is all about -the surprises. None of us will ever know exactly what lies ahead or what wonderful things are about to happen and it’s that tiny element of surprise and mystery which make me so excited to begin a brand new year and journey.

Here’s to the surprises!

Stylishly Yours,

Erika x
