Quite often fashion posts consist of really dressy pieces and outfits worthy of a night on the tiles. Occasion looks seem to take centre stage. I get it I do, i’m as guilty as charged. These events require a little something special. Dressing up is really fun and a chance for us to experiment and wear some pieces we wouldn’t normally get a chance to. But what about our day-to-day wardrobe, after all aren’t these the clothes we spend most of our time in. The clue is in the words ‘ day to day ‘. You know the stuff we get up in the morning and grab. Be it for work, the school run or college, we all need to get dressed. So I thought what better way to get back into the swing of Fifty Friday posts then to put together some looks that will get lots of wear. Easy, affordable day looks to get you through the week.
A collection of full head to toe outfits coming in under the fifty euro mark. I don’t want to say that each of these looks has to be worn to work or college or only fit for the school run. As always i try to include everyone and as many options as i can. Take inspiration and wear it your way.
A smart casual transitional look for the new A/W season. The neutral tones are very Autumnal, soft and easy to wear. Some comfy jeggings started the look and were built on with a pretty printed blouse. This is where the smart eliment of the outfit comes in. Appropriate for meetings and appointments during the day but comfortable enough to do the school run in. The low boot ties in well with the colour palette and looks great next to the indigo of the denim. The finishing touch is this mustard cardi with tie sleeves. An easy way to keep cozy as it gets colder without taking anything from your look. Infact it actually adds texture and colour.

A pretty but smart look to get you through the work week. This all in one pinafore dress is too handy to reach for in the mornings for a no fuss pulled together look. Paired with some opaque tights will keep the look sleek yet appropriate. I added a pop of colour with this red statement bag that is also very smart. Finished with some pointed flats for ultimate comfort.

Back To College
The last thing students want to be doing on a cold dark morning after a heavy night before is searching for something to wear. A relaxed but cool look is seen here that is both affordable but wearable. Taking the wardrobe staple that is the black skinnys and pairing them with a fun slogan tee. A slouchy cardi over the top will keep things cozy. For the feet we have these ‘Vans’ dupes that have become really popular. Easy to run for the bus in or go between classes. A zero effort, no frills option for back to college.

Extended sizing used to mean plain and bog standard with no options or room for style. Here a pretty and bright shirt dress provides the staple for the look. The button down front is very flattering , only added too with a tie waist for extra definition. The long sleeve top underneath is not only functional for the coming season but the clashing pattern provides some added interest. Tights can be added underneath or like here some basic leggings. Another classic finishes off the outfit in the form of the ballet flat. Easy, effortless but pulled together for your daily life.

Mammys to be shouldn’t have to compromise on style while they seek comfort. I put together a very classic maternity day look here that will allow you to keep killing it in comfort as you grow your little one. A classic but cool breton stripe tee takes the reigns. The frill detail on the sleeves really compliments the smock swing to the top. Maternity jeans don’t have to be boring. These under the bump options have a cool distressed finish. For the shoes we needed something that wouldn’t add to already aching feet. Beautiful statement runners that tie into the rich navy colour palette. A pop of colour is added with a handy cross body bag to keep the hands free.
