Christmas Wedding | Little Black Dress

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and are still feeling full from the turkey!

Yesterday I went to a wedding, the first one I have ever gone to around Christmas time and it was so nice despite the bitter cold. I found it difficult to find anything I really liked in the shops so I wore a dress I got for a ball about two years ago. It was a classic little black dress teamed with black and gold accessories.  I love this dress, it’s a very flattering fit on and easy to wear for a long day as it isn’t restricting. What sets it apart from other black dresses is the neckline; I feel the strappy design really adds to this otherwise simple dress. When I bought it was about forty or fifty euro and I got it from Asos. I decided to go for patent black high heels and a black and gold clutch bag. I really love this clutch, it is quite unusual in its design, I got it a couple of years ago in a charity shop for only €15! It was such a bargain because I have worn it with lots of different outfits. To match in with my bag I wore a gold cuff bracelet with a leather trim design and some simple dangly gold earrings. To add a bit of festiveness to the outfit I added a red lip and off I tottered to the Church!

Just to say Thank You and Merry Christmas

This is a post to say thank you to everyone who has supported me since I set up my blog just over a month ago! Initially I was terrified to start up something like this and share my life and love of fashion with the internet; it was something that was completely out of my comfort zone and new to me! But the support and kind words I have received have showed me that this risk was worth it and I am truly thankful and appreciative to all of you! Weather you follow me through Google Friends Connect (on the right of the page), Bloglovin’, Google +, Facebook or even just stumbled across my page randomly. I am grateful that you may have taken the time to read some of my posts or even leave a comment. It shows me that I’m not just blabbering on to myself but people actually read this and that means a lot! I really hope that you continue to follow what I do in the future and that more and more people will start reading and following this little space on the internet that I have!Read More »

What I Wore | Travelling Home for Christmas

So yesterday I left Dublin and headed home to Laois for Christmas. It was sooo cold out I decided to stay casual and warm as I didn’t want to be freezing as I dragged my suitcases to the train station. I wore a black and white patterned furry jumper that I got in the Awear sale, I teamed it with black skinny jeans and flat black Chelsea style boots from Penneys/Primark and I think they were about €11. I’d say about half my wardrobe consists of Penneys/Primark, I shouldn’t be allowed into that shop! To keep my ears nice and cosy I also wore this headband from H & M, another steal at just €4.95. I have been looking for a nice one for a while now and was delighted when I found this one. The red also adds a bit of festiveness to my outfit! 🙂 My necklace was a Christmas present from my boyfriend, Mark. I love it so much and think it completes this outfit nicely. It’s quite unique with the pearls and I’m sure you’ll see me wearing it a lot over the Christmas.Read More »

Christmas Drinks Outfit of The Day

Hope everyone liked the Christmas outfit inspirations post yesterday! Over Christmas I am going to try and blog a lot as I have a variety of different things coming up and I am off from college. Last night I went for Christmas drinks and nibbles and got to see a lot of friends I hadn’t seen since in a while seeing the exams had taken over my life! I went quite casual and I wore a new top I picked up while Christmas shopping and teamed it with my black skater skirt. I love this top, it’s so pretty! I picked it up in Penneys/ Primark for €11, which I thought was a brilliant price! The coiled neckline on this top creates a nice girly look and adds good shape to the fit of it. I feel it’s very wearable and it would look just as nice with a pair of skinny jeans. To complete this look I teamed it with black brogue shoes that have a slight heel. I got these shoes a couple of years ago and completely forgot about them until I found them at the back of my wardrobe recently! I got them in Penneys/Primark and think they were about a tenner at the time.Read More »
