Wonderful weekend whimsy!

Last weekend I went to Galway with my friend Orla (she writes a fab blog here too; nice simple things) for her thirtieth second twenty first birthday! Her dad lives in a small town (or is it a village? I’m not entirely sure how to determine which is which!) outside the city & he very kindly allowed us run riot utilise his house as he wasn’t going to be there, which was fairly awesome as it is an amazing house!

So after work on Friday we all piled into one of the girls’ cars & toddled on across the country with one tiny pee break for someone with the bladder of a small child (me!), and possibly a stop in Ballinasloe to make the birthday girl go into the most old man pub we could find & make her do a shot! As soon as we got to the house it was all very chilled out with a home made curry & wine!

On Saturday we wanted to go into the Christmas market in Eyre Square, and since it was cold I needed to layer up! What I wore was; my grey slouchy cardi from Gap, denim shirt from Penneys (or Primark), long grey tank from Jack Wills, black leggings from Danskin, boots from Office, blue scarf from Monsoon, & (odd) multi-coloured socks from Wacky Sox. Now Wacky Sox are my go to for winter under boots, and sometimes just as normal socks, because apart from keeping my bottom half of my legs warm, they’re proper sports socks designed for hockey & rugby so the soles are really cushioned and that means comfy feet all day long!


Saturday night was for fun!! We were going all out to nice bars & a very nice night club and we looked savage (if I do say so myself)! I wore my lace peplum top from Next, with a long black string top from H&M underneath, and a studded belt from Penneys around my waist, my “leather” leggings are from American Apparel, bag & sparkly bangles are from Fran&Jane, and my beautiful shoes are from


Pretty sure this picture will summarise the night;


Sunday was travelling so was in comfies!

‘Til next time……

Today’s outfit (1/12/13)

Today I figured I should get some present shopping for Christmas. Working in retail you would think I would be more prepared, but eeeeh no. When I worked in the city centre I would’ve been finished all my shopping by now, but this year it’s gotten away from me – new nephew & a puppy to train have distracted me somewhat!!

So today I went to Kildare Village (a fantastic designer outlet village!) with himself’s Mumma to get some bits & pieces, & we both got a good lot done! I’m not finished – only have himself done & my secret Santa nearly finished, but I’m started. But this is what I decided to wear as it’s quite comfy, while being warm & smart looking at the same time.


The tweed look blazer is from H&M, white long sleeve top is from Jack Wills (as is the coral & white tank underneath), skinny jeans are from Levi’s Curve, & my satchel & ballet pumps are from Penneys (Primark).

So there you have it!

‘Til next time……
