Occasion looks are always highly requested. Be it wedding guest, Christening or Communion mammy, there is always a lot of interest in this topic. Of course we always want to look our best, but when it comes to big occasions we want to look that bit nicer. That and the photos that come back to haunt us lol. I find with most ladies i speak to that the hardest part is finding something appropriate that is also stylish. You want to feel comfortable too and hopefully be able to wear the outfit again. Here i have put together some looks for those big events you have coming up this Spring. As always each look comes in under or as close…

As i set down to map out this weeks post i had a completely different idea in mind. After a trip to Penneys and seeing this swimming suit that all changed. I have been trying to hold off on Summer shopping but i think when it comes to swimwear you have to strike while the iron is hot. Sizes get whipped up so quickly and before you know it there is only odds and ends left. Cover ups and accessories are the kind of things you can pick up here and there and you won’t feel it adding up.   When i think back to years ago, basic top and shorts were as exciting as it got. The odd kaftan…

You can’t see me but be assured i am doing a little dance right now. My amazing insider informed me a couple of weeks back that H&M where finally launching an Irish site. I have been waiting impatiently ever since. Until now us lovers of the Swedish brand on the Emerald isle could not shop online. There was ways around it that i tried over the years but all carried extra effort and long waits. It puzzled me for the longest time why we were so far behind the times. The day finally came yesterday! The site launched. Does the dance make sense now? Okay okay as if we needed more oppertunity to shop. It will be dangerous but so…

This week all the outfits feature pleated skirts. Midi in length to be precise. The majority of the looks came in under budget with two coming in just slightly over. I personally find accordion pleats really flattering, especially worn high waisted. These type of skirts make for great occassion-wear. One of those pieces that are made for twirling around in. Adding some heels and a fancy top will see you great as a wedding guest look. To mix things up, pair with some tough boots and a shirt. For summer add some flat sandals and a light top. A classic black will be a gret wardrobe staple while a bright colour will serve well as a statement piece. Necklace €2…

It’s Friday again. I know it feels like a Sunday, thats what having Paddy’s Day on a Thursday does to you. The weeks keep on rolling in and the shops are filling up with the cutest summer pieces. I have been so good – so far. I’ve not bought anything of the extremely sunny weather required nature. The last few years i dove in wayyyyy too early and was kind of sick of what i had got when it came time for my summer holidays. Although, yes you do need to strike while the iron is hot for those pieces that just won’t stick around, i am just trying to be more selective. That was until i started outting together…
