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!!

Today’s outfit (03/05/2015)

For himself’s birthday I took him to Carton House as part of his present, we aren’t going to get away this year – money pit of a house will do that, but totally worth it!, so I wanted to give him (& us) a wee treat. 

For his birthday dinner I wore this gorgeous blue print dress from U Fashion, I’d bought it before Christmas and couldn’t close it, so it was my goal to fit into it! Yay me! My nude high heel pumps are from Penneys, and my jewellery is a mixture of vintage and gifts. 

 
I also gave some new make up a go: foundation & ‘one step’ primer from Stila, and this Rimmel mascara which is amazing! One coat of the mascara is perfect for daytime, but for evening I like a bit more drama so two coats was perfect! The brush is perfect for getting right into the base of the lashes

Outfit Opportunities

I had a really lovely Christmas, with a couple of days off (a rare thing in the world of retail) to spend with my family, himself & to just recharge the batteries. In my house, because we’re all grown up, we do secret Santa amongst the “children”, and my brother in law bought me this gorgeous dark (French?) navy midi skirt from UFashion – I may have been gushing about it on twitter, possibly.

(It doesn’t look as nice in the pic & on the hanger as it is on)

So I wanted to come up with some outfits that it would look nice in & here we are!

These two I thought would be nice and casual whilst still keeping a smart, pulled together look (the one on the left with the burgundy airtex is very Marisa Cooper from The OC). Both would look really nice with a pair of ballet flats, court heels, or pretty sandals in summer.

The one on the right could be “roughed” up a bit by throwing on a leather jacket over the striped h&m tee, (or a plain white one would be really nice too) and a pair of ankle boots or shoe boots like these ones:

The other combinations I came up with from my own clothes were:

The one on the left (long sleeved tee is from h&m) could be dressed up with a big statement necklace and shoe boots like those above, or a pair of nude court heels, or dressed down with a nice cardi, coloured tights and ballet flats (Office have some really lovely ones in stock all the time!). The one on the left is slightly more dressy to start with because of the sparkly shoulders, and the same dressing up/down would work for it. That short sleeved jumper is from F&F at Tesco & I’ve had it forever but there are plenty like it in the shops at the moment.

There are so many options as to how you could style it.

I also got some fabulous make up as part of my presents which I will be road testing asap so will write about them soon.
