Happy Wednesday girls! We are halfway through the week and Christmas holidays are in sight. If you haven’t got your party season style sorted yet, there is still plenty of time.

Beware, you will want it all.

Jingle Bells! December is here and I am in full Christmas party mode. That being said, whilst I love getting all glammed up for a party night out, I love nothing more than cosying up in seriously lush cosy knitwear.

There is currently a never-ending supply of the nicest tops and coats in high street stores and boutiques, Whitefawn Boutique included. (Sweater and gilet pictured above from Whitefawn) and the torture is real to be good!!

Having left it too late last winter to get the winter coat I lusted after so dearly (still not quite over it!), as soon as the autumn/winter pieces started to drop this year, I pounced as soon as my eyes caught this faux fur beauty from Topshop. The perfect colour to go with everything! Saying that, I am a creature of habit for neutral tones and florals (guilty!!).  Since I got my coat, it has sold out but thankfully, they have re-stocked in a peach colour which I think is a much more flattering tone.

I paired it for a recent style shoot with this cute floral midi dress and gorgeous belt from Whitefawn Boutique

If there is one thing you spend money on this winter, a coat is well worth the investment, it will pay for itself in no time! Take your time in choosing the right one for you and make sure it will work with everything else in your wardrobe.  You need to ensure all your hard earned pennies are being well spent.

Hi guys! Happy Tuesday with bells on it! I haven’t done a “Tuesday Shoesday” post in quite a while so I decided to put together an edit with some of my most favourite espadrilles & slider styles that are available right now and bang on trend.

I am having quite an obsession with espadrilles and sliders.  There are too many gorgeous pieces out there and had to really narrow down the post so as not to bombard you all!  We may not be having the best summer but lets embrace the “slightly” warmer temperatures and leave those boots aside.  Just click on the pictures for direct links!

Apologies in advance for the diminishing bank balances if you too have a shoe addiction.

P.S. How gorgeous is the style in the cover photo! ?

There is no doubt about it – when Spring has sprung, I am instantly refreshing my wardrobe! Let’s be honest, winter in Ireland is long, drab and dark and the need for brighter tones once March arrives is instant! Plus many of us have just finished paying endless January and February bills after the Christmas period! Light knits can be so easy to style. Pair a cropped knit over a cute dress or skirt and a longer knit over your favourite jeans, layering with a leather jacket for an extra edge.  You can get my rust knit here

 

Lace, River Island

A light knit will see you through the spring, summer and autumn seasons. Layer up or down as the temperatures change (which is common in Ireland).  A pretty jumper will take you from day to night easily!!

Some of my favourite knits at the moment:

Fashion trends 2017

River Island Grey Mesh off Shoulder Jumper

Asos

Free People Endless Stories Jumper @ ASOS

Frills, ribbon details and mesh are high on trend this season and all are super flattering to wear. Many of my readers will know at this stage, that I am big on quality over quantity with everything (something my bank balance does not thank me for at times!!) So my advice is, if you really love something and you will genuinely get the wear out of it, then go for it! The reality is, it will go far if the quality and brand is good. Look outside the box too – if you purchase something from a small boutique or a different brand on a website such as ASOS, subsequently the chances are your choice will be unique and no one else will probably have it!

Finally, as the saying goes, “If you can’t stop thinking about it, buy it.”  Happy shopping! X
