If you are a fan of the ‘Vans’ look but haven’t got the paper to spare then these could be for you. €10 in Penneys for a heavily influenced style. I have a pair of the Vans on my wishlist but these would do the job till i get that far down my list lol. Extremely affordable. I put together two ways to wear here going forward. The monochrome looks really well against white denim. As much as i keep saying it, runners like these are a really comfy but cool addition to your day to day wardrobe. So many ways to wear these little casual shoes. Here are two examples of how to wear.     Choker…

Pastels for Spring? To phrase one Mrs Priestly – “groundbreaking” right? Not quite but this year they have taken on a modern twist by hooking up with another trend. By adapting the soft pastel tones with a hint of metallic, it breaths some life into them. Not harsh or brassy but rather current and chic. Whilst putting together some looks for Spring occasions i thought i would take them from this point of view. Two birds one stone and all those other cliches. A prime example of the look i am talking about can be seen in the first outfit below. I adore this dress! Confirmation, Communion and Christening appropriate too cause i know a lot of you will be looking. Replacing…

I have been busy putting together some wedding guest looks for a post. I was somewhat side tracked as i had to find myself one too lol and my mother and my sister and you know the aul fella chimed in too feeling left out of the action. Tick Tock, Tick Tock. Thank the online gods for express delivery is all i say. Posts with outfits for weddings and other church occasions are highly requested and i get why. It can be hard to tick all the boxes for such a big day. Skirt For Weddings I personally had an idea in my head that i wanted for this family wedding. Sometimes that can be a bad thing because nothing was…

This little embroidered number from Penneys had it’s first outing on me last week. I am happy to report back that it is such a comfortable wear. Layered here with one of my longtime wardrobe heroes, a faux fur gilet. Tights were essential though! It was only €14 which is crazy affordable for a piece like this. I’m looking forward to getting more wear of this dress and styling it some more ways too.     I like the fit and the styling possibilities are endless. Day or night. Work or play. With or without tights. Summer or winter. You can’t argue with those options. This dress looks like nothing on the hanger. It also looks pretty shapeless. Add a…

I am more than aware that all i have posted or talked about lately is Penneys. Don’t get me wrong i have always been a massive fan and shared my favourite finds and buys from my latest shopping trip. It has just gotten so much worse though. There is nearly not a day that goes by that i am not like ‘ohhh’ or ‘okay i need that’ and i just can’t help but post about it. Money isn’t exactly flush for peeps so to see some really affordable pieces that can instantly update a tired winter wardrobe is exciting. There are a few things i rely on every year from Penneys and this year is no different.     Dress €8…

Rose print has been popping up more and more everywhere of late. Moving on nicely from the rock ‘ n ‘ roll movement that has been dominating the style scene of late. Just in time for Val / Gal Day. First we had embroidered patches and details that roses where a really popular choice for. Then came the band tees – think Guns And Roses. I started to see some more feminine pieces with an all over floral print and thought this was worthy of a little spotlight. There are plenty of styles and choice available in the shops at the moment in all sorts of colours and fabrics. I concentrated on the black and red colourway though with a glam…

It is always a tricky one this time of year. Everyone is still broke and wrecked after the festive period. January can be such a long cold month that is just mehhh on so many levels. The shops are no better either really. You have either got bitty sale rails still hanging around or full on summer clothes. Most of the new season pieces that have arrived are out of the New Year budget for most of us. There is one place that wouldn’t see us stuck though. Our old reliable friend Penneys. Yes, they have some great reductions in-store and yes their swimwear section is filling up fast , but they haven’t forgot about the here and now. Bringing you pieces…

Some important post fell in the door this week that prompted me to write this post. Davey, my super postman hadn’t got an online order for me, just a plain white envelope. Ripping it open i was met with a logo i was familiar with. It was an invite…. for a smear test. Those three years have certainly flown in. I had shingles at the time of my last one so i remember it well.

Happy New Year! Better late than never right. Everyone is saying it but God that last 12 months just flew. Especially since Summer , time just seemed to whizz by. What a year it has been for many reasons. I wanted to take a look back at the pieces I ardored and loved wearing during the past year. A round-up of my fashion favourites. As usual there were things I completely obsessed over and went on and on about. It doesn’the take much for me to get obsessed with a piece, colour or trend. There were some new editions and some old reliables that stuck with me through the year. Certain stores where all I could shop some months but…
