Raindrops on roses

And whiskers on kittens….

These are a few of my favourite (newly bought) things! Yippee!

Yes I’m very excited, I went shopping (yay!) and I get to talk about the things that I bought (double yay! Himself can only feign so much “yes it’s pretty” before I melt his brain).

First up are these coral slipper type shoes & beaded sandals, both from Penneys (& both were under a tenner each!). Yes I know it’s still baltic out, but its now April so summer has to arrive soon. Right?! I love ballet flats, and have far too many to count, because they go with everything and can often be a very comfy alternative to heels.

I just loved the colour of the slippers, it screamed sunshine to me. I plan on teaming them with turned up jeans & a white tee, with a blazer or chunky cardi.

As for the sandals, I know we don’t get that many sunny days here in Dublin, but with holidays being planned, and the summer stock coming into shops in February (why? Why does this happen?) everything would be gone by the time the sunshine actually deigns to appear. Plus they’re pretty. And it’s always good when they have a strap around the ankle like that, supports the foot a bit better. With the beaded detailing on the main foot section they could be seen as slightly more dressy than a standard plain one.

This necklace is something I’ve been eyeing up for a while now, it’s been in the window of the Fran & Jane near my work & I’ve been trying to convince myself that I don’t actually need it. Yeah that didn’t happen.

I know that a lot of companies have brought out similar styles and colours to this but i just loved the combination of colours used & the shape of it. I have no occasion (as of yet) that I know I’ll get to wear it but I already have 6 outfits planned! Ha! I think it would look great casually with this green maxi I bought in the Next sale last summer, or dressy with the black dress from ASOS that I wore for Christmas or even with a plain tee, skinnies & a leather jacket where it would brighten up the whole look. There are so many options.

So that’s my excitement for the week. Not very exciting I know, but it’s the little things!

‘Til next time……
