Hello to all you beautiful people,
I hope you all had an amazing bank holiday weekend and aren’t feeling too frazzled and rattled because of it today! I always feel like on the Tuesday after a long weekend, everyone is kind of on a “go-slow” pace. As I mentioned in my last post, I decided to take race week easy and not participate in the usual Galway madness and all the antics that go along with it.
As a reward to myself and also as a way of keeping myself occupied so the “FOMO” didn’t set in, I did the one thing that always makes me feel better – online shopping!
The first thing that was added to my cart was this View Post
I hope you’re all keeping well and enjoying what’s left of our summer. It’s probably the biggest week of the year here in Galway with the Races being on but I’ve decided to take it easy and catch up on some long overdue blog work.
A post I’ve been meaning to do for ages now is one on easily the biggest trend of the year so far – statement sleeves! I’m never one for fad trends because I usually tire of them quickly but this is a trend that is going absolutely nowhere and it’s also one that I’ve found myself buying into over and over again. If you follow me on Instagram and keep up to date with my #OOTD’s then you’ll be aware of my obsession for all things oversized and frilled in particular sleeves! View Post
I hope you had a not so miserable Monday. I don’t care what anyone says or how much you might love your job – Monday’s are still hard! For once, I actually stuck to my plan of not doing a whole lot as intended and just chilled out for the weekend. It was bliss. If you follow me on Instagram then you might recognise this outfit from last week when I wore it to my brother’s confirmation.
These culottes are probably one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe – they’re just so much fun and well, sassy! Try as I might, most dresses just don’t suit my shape so I’m always more comfortable in separates. I think the day of feeling like you’re not dressed up unless you’re wearing a dress is long gone. I’m always of the opinion that you should wear whatever you like and feel comfortable in, as long as the fit is good. That’s my only rule – get the sizing right and after that throw the rule book to the wind. Fashion is supposed to be fun!! View Post
Friday, Friday, Friday..oh am I happy to see you! Last week I only worked two and a half days between the bank holiday Monday and having time off for my brother’s confirmation so this week has felt like a marathon in comparison. I have absolutely no plans for this weekend and I couldn’t be happier about it. Most weekends I would have something on like a friends birthday or a family event etc so I’m looking forward to just coming home this evening, putting my feet up and chilling out.
This look is a combination of old and new pieces in my wardrobe. I’ve had this sleeveless blazer for ages and it’s usually a piece that I wear during the Autumn/Winter but I think paired with this white bell sleeve blouse it works for this time of year. I was doing a big clear out of my wardrobe recently and I rediscovered a few pieces I had forgotten about. Check print is really back on the scene at the moment so I was delighted to find my sleeveless blazer and not have to fork out for something new. I had been eyeing up this checked blazer for a few weeks but my thirst for something checked has thankfully been quenched for now. View Post
I’m finally back to a normal(ish) routine after a few days away in Nerja in the south of Spain. If you’ve been following my blog from the start then you’ll know that my grandparents live in Nerja for around half of the year and I’ve been going there since I was 12. I absolutely love it there. I’m going to be doing a separate post on everything you need to know when going to Nerja but for now, I’m going to be talking about the idyllic village situated in the mountains not far from Nerja – Frigiliana… View Post
