Hello Lovelies! This week’s second look couldn’t be further from the first one. My first look of this week was dark and lacked colour but I loved it anyways. This one is very much the opposite but again, I love it. I never usually wear many bold colours and certainly didn’t have anything orange in my wardrobe before purchasing this jumper but I just loved this shade and how it “popped”. I picked this cropped sweater up while I was in London for work last week, I was instantly drawn to the colour of it. It has a beautiful rich mustardy, burnt orange hue.

Today’s look is about as predictable as I can get when it comes to choosing an outfit and that really doesn’t bother me. I think sometimes people can get so caught up in changing up their look or evolving their style that they lose their own personal style in the process. I love trends as much as the next person, I mean I count down the days until February arrives because I know that with February comes my favourite March edition magazines, so I’m definitely not innocent when it comes to buying into trends and fashion moments. In fact, I love them – trends are fun and exciting and create that buzz in the fashion world that I love so much. But that doesn’t mean that we should forget about our own personal style or that we should feel guilty about returning to the same pieces in our wardrobe.
Happy Sunday Everyone!
Sundays are by FAR by favourite day of the week, especially when you manage your first full weekend in, in months and you wake up feeling fresh as a daisy. Those Sunday’s are the winning ones. I’m spending this Sunday meeting up with one of my oldest friends, having brunch and then celebrating my sisters birthday, so it’s one I think I’ll be enjoying! Yesterday was such a fabulous day so myself and my sister/photographer decided we needed to take advantage of the last of the ‘September Sun’ lighting and shoot this look.
With the official arrival of the autumnal weather means it’s now socially acceptable to start rooting out all your cosy knits and layers. This makes me uncontrollably happy. Try as I might, I will always prefer dressing for winter. I love the layers, the darker shades, the cosiness.. View Post
I’m usually not a huge fan of vintage.. I mean, I can completely appreciate how stunning and beautiful it is but 9 times out of 10 it just doesn’t suit me. When I think of vintage I instantly think of small sizes and generally it just doesn’t work on girls that are in anyway “busty”. This pink longline blazer though was my exception. I routed this beauty out of a vintage shop in Clifden, Connemara during the summer and I honestly could not believe my luck. The quality of it is absolutely amazing and the best part? It was only €20!!
Happy Friday guys!
To be honest, at first I wasn’t hugely sold on bomber jackets but this black embroidered one, I fell for straight away. I quickly tired of the quilted ones that we were beginning to see everywhere but I loved the Gucci vibe this one had due to it’s embroidered detailing (just look at those butterflies). It’s black so I can still wear it with most things but at the same time it’s that little bit different! View Post
