Hello, 2014. How’d ya go? How ya doin’? And what have you done to me? The Shopping Diary… 2014 was pretty uneventful I have to say. Despite all that happened I can’t remember anything that happened.

So the Bachelorette happened and so did the midi skirt… I knew I wanted color and pattern… Of course one must always incorporate black because… well… it’s black… A high / low mix would also be helpful as in pairing a t-shirt with a fancy skirt… And even though it’s hot, a jacket is too…
