We're kinda only getting it into our heads this week that Christmas is over.
And when Christmas is over, it feels like everything else is a million miles away. Good weather will never come again, the darkness is going to stay forever, and we'll all just have to wear ugly woolly jumpers for the rest of our days.
Yep, January can be super depressing, and while we can't change the weather, we can wear beautiful god-damn jewellery that makes us look like *~queens~* from the South of France.
Launching today is Stella & Dot's SS16 collection, and we're totally drooling.
With semi-precious beads and tassels to bright and daring colours, the pieces really stick out from the crowd and will give an otherwise-boring outfit a bit of shine and flare.
Here's our fave pieces from the collection that will dress up any outfit on these dull days:
Beaded Abacus Cuff – €92
Tala Chandeliers – €56
Iris Tassel Earrings – €69
Ezra Statement Necklace – €150
Tesserae Ring – €45
You can shop all of these looks on the Stella & Dot website, or contact an nationwide independent stylist.
Since summer is neeearly here, we're getting excited about our wardrobe updates.
Soon our jumpers, hats and scarves will be replaced by skirts, sandals and sunnies. Hurrah!
Along with Stella & Dot's new SS16 collection, co-founder Blythe Harris has created a chart to show you how to find the perfect sunglasses for the shape of your face.
Between heart, oval, square and round-faces, there's a style for everyone so there's no need to try on endless amounts of sunnies and ask your mam if "this style suits?… Or this one… OR this one…"
You'll now be able to find your perfect pair in a flash… Now, all we need is the sun to stop hiding from us!
