That Print Though

I’ve made no effort to hide the fact that i get obsessed with things really easily. It can be a colour, a store , a type of clothing or in this case a print! When i’m hooked i’m hooked and that is all i can think about. Just that happened with this print. The more i saw, the more i wanted. This wasn’t helped by the fact that there was so much to see. Dresses, kaftans, skirts, shorts, kimonos, tops – you name it, all donned this magical print. The print is really statement and such a summer pattern. More African inspired than the Aztec type prints we usually seen around this time of year. I really liked the red…

SilverCrest Hair Wand | Lidl Beauty Bargain

It was last week when this little beauty buy came onto my radar. One of those a friend of a friend told me things. My handy to have little sister flew to our local Lidl and picked me up one. Parting with a mere €14.99 for the ultimate relaxed, soft beach waves, was something i was more than glad to do. Let me just say that i suck at doing hair, my own more than any. Finding a tool that aids me with this in any way is always welcome in my eyes. I am really happy with my new shorter cut so i figured this wand could create that much desired perfect Summer hair. Yes aesthetically this does look like another…

Festival Fashion | Shop The Shoot

The weeks have flown by and Summer is almost upon us. With Summer comes another type of season, that is – festival season. Kicking off this June and running right through until October. There was once a time when festival wear was just functional, run of the mill. Now-a-days festivals are super trendy with some of the most stylish looks to be seen. We only have to look to Coachella to back this one up. For the June issue of In Tallaght magazine i styled some festival worthy outfits that are available in The Square. In keeping with the traditional festival vibe that is colourful , fun and relaxed – i paired some 70’s inspired bohemian offerings with some more modern pieces too. There is…

Look Of The Day #37

The black , blue , lime version of these shorts where really popular when i used them in a look recently. Not surprisingly really as they are a beautiful piece. A smart , tailored short that is also fun and quite cool. When i saw that a pale pink pair had made their way into New Looks collection i had to share them. There is a  softer, more romantic type feel to this colour option. All of the other qualities still apply though. Really easy to wear and quite adaptable to your styling needs. Here i’ve added a light swing cami top with colourblock straps. A black heel but a pretty and delicate clutch that picks up the pink beautifully.…

Fifty Friday | Skater Dresses

If i could only wear one shape for the rest of my life, i’d choose skater hands down. It is the silhouette that suits me and flatters my shape the most. I actually think they flatter most if not all shapes. For those with curves the skater cut hits you at your narrowest and draws the eye in before falling nicely over the bottom half. For more straight shaped ladies, a skater defines the waist creating an illusion of a curvier shape. A great go to weather it be skirts or dresses for any size. For this weeks collection of looks for under fifty euro i picked to focus on skater dresses. One piece and you are dressed. Easy peasy. There…

Look Of The Day #36

Have you heard the news? We are due a heatwave this weekend. No really. And yep i’m talking about the weather again. The brighter , warmer evenings have me excited to get stuck into my Summer wardrobe while the chance is there. Any excuse though really. With that being said, tonight’s look is moving in that direction. Fresh, bright colours and legs out. The main focus of the outfit has to be the shorts. There is something quite smart about these although they are still quite fun. The striped combo is beautifully done. I pulled the lime stripe to pair a top with. I had originally thought of putting a light cami with the shorts but when i saw there…

Look Of The Day #35

With tonight’s look i wanted to put together something easy to throw on. A comfy, semi casual outfit that takes no thinking. Minimal effort while still looking put together. Hopefully the weather will start getting better and we can start wearing sandals with ease. Pairing some flats or flip-flops with jeans and a pretty top is a reliable combo. Getting into the Summer vibe whilst also remembering where you live lol. The white in both the top and sandals will bring out your tan. Tanned feet look so much much better. I do really like this pair from River Island.  They were swiftly added to the wish list. It is hard to see the pretty little detail of this top…

Look Of The Day #34

Damn Kiera, back at it again with the lace. I can’t promise i’m jumping off the lace train just yet but will try mix it up for the next few looks. I couldn’t not though with this one. It is a combo i have been looking to put together for awhile now. There is something about how these two shades of green and yellow look together. Not quite sure what it is but hey it looks good so who am i to question colour wheel logic.  Another beautiful skirt of the lace variety in this stunning green. I knew i wanted a yellow toned shoe and these sandals from Penneys are just the ticket. With such an expensive shape and finish to…

Look Of The Day #33

Keeping with the occasional wear theme as it is really popular at this time of year. Lots of big events happening that require lots of Spring / Summer appropriate looks. Everyone is looking for something different and special for the big day whatever that may be. Well i think this lace skirt is pretty special. Really beautifully made and not the typical flat colour. Here we see a bright, vibrant orange and dusky pink taking on the black base with ease. The over layer of lace will be flattering on too. I paired this with a lace crop that i thought would sit perfectly on the waist of the skirt. Keeping the lace theme running through. Almost like a contrasting…
