I have been eyeing up this top for awhile now. My favourite bardot style neckline in a beautiful lace. I adore the finish on the sleeves and can see how flattering the cut will be on. I have paired it here with something different than my usual A-line skirts. Some really smart culottes in a modern print stripe. The colour palette is really soft and subtle with the light pink as the main tone. The solid black stripe makes them easy to tie in with basic black pieces in your wardrobe. As the pants finish at a culotte length it was a great opportunity to show a sandal with detail. The lace up design adds some interest but keeping them…

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…

What is in your bag? Phone, keys, perfume, hand cream, make-up, the kitchen sink? We carry around so much everyday including, big bulging, hefty wallets. If you are like me your purse is busting at the seems. Wishful thinking would have it stuffed with money and this would be a poor me / 1st world problem tagged post then. I just seem to have a billion cards, receipts, a sterling 2p coin for me trolley in Tesco. The list goes on. I need all this stuff. I think. Awhile back i had got really sick of my usual handbags. Yes i loved how they looked and styling them with outfits. Carrying them, not so much. Id taken to switching to really small bags or…
