Hey guys! This year so far is off to a great start. But my optimism could possibly be espresso fueled. It’s safe to say that while I’m happy for a new year I’m so frightened of so many things e.g. moving to a new town without the help of my parents and starting university. I think it’s worth while to start out the year experimenting with a few things and taking chances so that’s exactly what this outfit post is all about.
I’ve been wanting to cut my hair for a while, or at least change it drastically. My personality is that of someone that needs some change every now and then otherwise I’ll drown in a rut of boredom. At first in the last month I was considering it but I was so frightened. This fright really made me realise I needed to cut my hair. The last thing I want to be frightened of is protecting something as unimportant as my hair and I wanted to do this to remind myself that appearance isn’t the most important thing in the world.
The act itself was a little less hyped. It played out exactly like: “Coen, do you think I should cut my hair?” “Whatever”. So I grabbed the scissors, went into the bathroom and in the next five minutes was finished.

The outfit picture is rather terrible but we were about to leave for a friends party and it was as hot as hell outside which I was not prepared to face. The leopard print dress I’m wearing was a bit of a spur of the moment buy. I regretted buying it almost immediately because I didn’t think I would wear something that isn’t black – so far that thought has been completely wrong. On the other hand while thinking about my style journey I wanted to add a bit more punk into my wardrobe and this was the dress for it – perfect with a leather jacket!

Dress: Jay Jays.
Shoes: Cotton On.
Anyway, I spent my New Years drinking milky alcohol with a bunch of my friends, ending up sleeping on the floor of a tent fully clothed with only Coen as a blanket. How did you spend your New Years? Are you getting a jump start on your resolutions or goals?
