Today’s outfit (10/08/2014)

Yes I know I have been very lax as of late with postings, but I’ve had a small matter of finally getting the keys to my, MY, house and then having to gut it & organise many, many (many) tradesmen to come in & make it habitable before we move in. So apologies for that!

Today we went for brunch, as my brother is home for the weekend – my sister was home two weeks ago with my gorgeous nephew & there was a lunch then too but I forgot to document what I wore! So we went to The Winding Stair for a veeerrrry delicious brunch. Himself brought me there for my 30th birthday in February and their dinner is even better than their brunch!

Since it was just family it was a smart casual ensemble that was thrown together. My flower print ballet flats are from Penneys, cropped chinos are from Next (they are very comfortable, come in beige & a knee length version also!), flower print top I got in the Gap outlet in Bainbridge, and put a navy string cami from H&M underneath as it can be a bit booby – which I didn’t think would be very appropriate for brunch. My mint blazer is from Penneys & my bag in vintage.



I kept my make up and hair quite simple: hair straight & down, and natural make up with Benefit’s “frenched” lipstick to jazz it up. That lipstick has been discontinued, so if you can, buy it all. All of it. It is the best red lippy as it’s quite bright, without being orange, and it makes your teeth look super white!

So there you go!

‘Til next time……

Today’s outfit (7/4/14)

Today I have lots to do & lots of people to meet that I need to look quite smart for so I decided on this outfit.


My tweed blazer is from H&M, long sleeved grey top (which has thumb holes in the cuff!!) is from Under Armour, with a long purple tank from Jack Wills underneath. My skinny jeans are from Levi’s curve range, flowery ballet flats are from Penneys, my satchel is from Zatchels, and my scarf was a gift.

‘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……
