“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious. But above all black says this: I don’t bother you – don’t bother me.” – Yohji Yamamoto
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.
I should first start off by apologising for being such an absentee blogger this past month and welcoming you all back! If you follow me on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Snapchat: @adashoflime) then you’ll know I’m just recently home from two amazing weeks in San Francisco.
Last October, one of our best friends, Sara Kate flew the nest and moved to San Francisco so myself and Eadaoin promised her that no matter what we would visit this summer. Truth be told I was so excited to just see Sara Kate and spend time with the girls that I didn’t actually put much thought into San Francisco as a city itself or have that many expectations for it. Little did I know that I’d fall completely in love with everything about the place. View Post
Today’s outfit is an “off duty” look of sorts – it’s basically what you would find me wearing on weekends and time off etc. As much as I would love to be a dress/skirt kind of girl, I’m just so much more comfortable in trousers and denims in particular. I’m becoming more and more a fan of the “Mom” jeans lately, they’re the perfect balance between not too skinny yet still flattering and they still show your shape. I love the fact that they’re high waisted too which means you can tuck a top in or wear them with shorter things like this cropped leather. View Post
I hope you enjoyed part 1 of my London travel diary that I posted at the weekend..now though it’s time for part 2! After a hectic first day, a late night and a severe lack of sleep we were doing well when we woke on Saturday morning ready for our second day of adventuring. Our first port of call was the part I was most looking forward to – The Vogue 100 Show at The National Portrait Gallery. View Post
I’m finally getting around to write these London posts, bold I know, but truth be told I think I’m only fully(ish) recovered now! So where to begin? Well, if you follow me on snapchat (username: adashoflime) then you might remember that back in March, my partner in crime, Eadaoin got me the best birthday present of tickets to see The Vogue 100 Show in London. As you can imagine, I was pretty thrilled, I’ve always had a soft spot for London so going on a spontaneous girls weekend there was a very welcomed plan. We went from a Friday to a Sunday and we managed to fit in an impressive amount of activities! View Post
