Today’s outfit 03/07/16

Having a day date with himself today so going for ladylike chic – it’s nice to dress up & now that I have a uniform in the new job I don’t associate these clothes with work anymore. 


Striped tee, pencil skirt & leopard print ballet flats are all h&m, beads are Chanel.

Terrible typist*…

Yeah so I’m terrible at this, whoops! With starting the new job before Christmas and the house &/ dog taking up all of my time (& money) I don’t get to snap my ensembles all that much. But I am getting into the swing of the job (exceeding targets by my 3rd month which is fairly awesome!!)

So with the seasons moving into summer (& hopefully some decent weather), all I can think of are bright colours and patterns – especially since I can only wear black & white in work!! Looking forward to wearing my high waisted skirts with cute tees, or getting my hands on some fab patterned dresses – like the new stock Bow & Pearl have in. My go to colours are the obvious Royal and cornflower blue, daffodil yellow (strong but not overpowering) and pistachio/mint green! These are fab with so many other colours and provide a great contrast too! 
So there ya are…

*or just terrible at writing a blog because I have no attent…oooh something shiny….

Outfit of the day 25/12/15

Yes it’s a little late but I’ve been too busy, eeeehhhh, eating….. And working! Yes!! I’ve been working too! Ah the joys of the service industry!! 

  
Black courts (not really seen) are from Penneys / Primark, tulle skirt is from Cari’s Closet (sale for €20!!), black cardi is from Oasis, beads are Chanel, watch is DKNY, and ring is antique.

Christmas Day was its usual whirlwind of visiting and jamming as much into it as possible, before being able to take off the nice clothes & put on your jammies because (in the words of Regina George) “this is all that fits me right now”. 

Proof!!

Outfit of the day 25/10/15

My nephew was being christened, so that called for glamming up!!! 

  
(I had to brighten up the pic as the original was way too dark)

Grey short sleeve jumper (with black sequins on the shoulder) is from F&F (Tesco), midnight blue midi skirt from UFashion, black pointed toe heels from Penneys, white & black clutch from Onyx in Blackrock. 

 
Accessories consisted of gold drop earrings & bracelet from Stonechat in the Westbury Mall, and rose gold watch from DKNY. 

Also, I picked up this Rimmel eye liner & it is idiot proof – perfect feline flick the first try!!

**edit 25/10/15**

See, idiot proof!! 

  
Mascara is wonder’ful by Rimmel

New beginnings

I’m starting a new job next month, so will have to reasses my work wardrobe – currently trackie bottoms & hoodies/jeans & a tee – advantage of working in a sports shop, to something a bit more professional looking!! I have begun my attempt of grown of dressing with these beauties from Clarks; 

  
Yes, they’re pewter. So still managing to be my weird & preppy self!! My sister bought a pair of petrol green (or was it emerald? Either way, a lovely dark green!) a year or so ago & I was fairly resistant to them-reminiscent of school shoes, calling her a hipster etc. But jokes on me, I’ve been thinking about them since!! Curses!! So there we go, my new smart shoes for my new smart job!! 

Wish me luck!!

Outfit of the day 20/09/2015

Today I was on a quick fire round trip to London to meet my new nephew (& hopefully get a cuddle with his older brother & my sister in at the same time!) so comfy was high on priority list!!

   

(Excuse the airport bathroom mirror selfie, didn’t think himself would appreciate the light being put on at 5am for a mirror selfie!)

 
Blanket cape is from Oasis (Spring 2015 – but they’ve very similar ones in at the moment!), checked shirt is men’s from Tommy Hilfiger – love a mans shirt as they’re so much longer & better across the shoulders (& bust), long tanks (grey & dark purple) are both from Jack Wills, dark indigo jeans are from Levis Curve, ankle boots are from New Look, orange bag is Longchamp & my watch is DKNY.

  
And these are the amazing products that made me look human at 5am & stayed put until I got home at 1am -after a delayed flight! (The 17 blusher is actually one I use for eyeshadow as it doesn’t suit on my cheeks)

Today’s outfit (06/09/2015) 

Yesterday I was at Electric Picnic, so today being slightly zombie like after the 21 hour day (which wasn’t all that unusual when I worked at these gigs) that it was meant all I wanted was snuggly cuddly clothes.  

 
The cardi is from Fran&Jane, long sleeved tee is from Jack Wills, jeans are Levi’s Curve, and boots are New Look. 
Yesterday’s outfit consisted of wellies, jeans, comfy tee, hoody & jacket. No pic as I was in work all day before and, well, there was nothing exciting about it!! But I was so comfy, and warm as the temp dropped.
