Put a bow on it!

FashionMy Style

Put a bow on it …loving this pencil skirt..

With its high waisted fit and bow to cover a multitude over the tummy area this dress is a dream.. I had been oowing and ahing over a similar skirt I spotted in Coast that was featured on Olivia Palermo, but its was that little bit too expensive for me. So when I spotted this one on Asos I simple had no hesitation in purchasing.

The colours are beautiful and its easy pair it up with any type of top. The one I’m wearing here is from Vanilla Boutique its old but I have found similar here from IClothing for €24.95..online here

The skirt is available here on Asos but is selling fast.

Apologies for the very little images but I have done a live video on this look and its available to view on my facebook page here

A huge thank you to Philip and the team at the Sheraton Hotel Athlone who allowed us shoot in this beautiful room, a better view on the video above.

Its an amazing hotel with beautiful views all over Athlone Town & the River Shannon, not to mention its attached to Athlonetowncentre, so plenty of shopping too which is even better!!

Until next time

Casual Wear during Easter Term

FashionFashion and Beauty BlogMy StyleUncategorized

casual wear

Casual wear during the Easter Holiday…so I’ve been living in casual wear since the kids got their holidays..Mainly because the alarm clock (aka two minions) have been waking up at ungodly hours and I’m literally too tired to even think let alone decide what to throw on..hence nice casual wear for the day. Its a comfy and little more relaxed easy look when dealing with two kids all day 🙂

This current piece is from a little boutique which only recently opened called Corali. It is owned by a gorgeous girl called Caroline, who is unbelievably helpful, and has an amazing eye for good quality affordable fashion!

I grabbed this jumper from her store a few weeks back, as soon as I tried it on I loved it…its so comfy but a fab piece too with lovely little details on the arms (a star on one side and an anchor the other side) This is a two in one piece with the collar and hem attached to the jumper. Its all in one and I can’t count how many times I’ve been complimented when wearing it.

Its a fine knit jumper and perfect for this kind of weather, as in cold one day nice and mild the next. The jumper also looks well with a navy blazer. I washed this a good few times now and it hasn’t lost it shape, the quality is excellent for the price I paid for it at €48 (from memory)

The lenght of the jumper is lovely too not too long for a 5’4 shorty like me but a nice lenght all the same. I paired mine with my stradivarius jeans which were €19.95, find them instore or here. I have these jeans a while and what I will say about them is they are true to size and after several wears & washes they have kept their shape. The only thing is they are distressed jeans and the rips on the knee have widened a lot more so if you don’t really like when that happens then avoid these jeans.

The heels are from Littlewoods Ireland but they are sold out sorry guys but Asos have similar here.

So a nice casual day time look for any wardrobe and as far as I know Corali still have these in stock, if you contact Caroline in the link above you’ll can order over the phone.

Hope you like and if you have any questions just ask me

Until next time

Love

A little lace top!

FashionMy Style

I’m always drawn to lace ..for me it never dates and its always good to have a little lace top (white preferably) hanging in the wardrobe. It goes with everything and you can mix it up with skirts, jeans or trousers.

This one I picked up in the January sales in Stradivarius, but even since then I have seen similar everywhere. And I’m not surprised as they are so dressy for day or nighttime and suit every kind of shape. This is slightly shorter so will suit a petite figure. But I have seen longer lengths to suit taller or longer torso s.

I paired this with my grey jeans from Noisy may which you’ll find here but I have also worn this with blush pink trousers and tulle skirts too. In the summer I pair it with denim shorts and it looks fab. (I’ll show you another picture below)

The heels are old from Savida, but they have a similar darker pair in stock at the moment. I wear this outfit during the day and it can also be worn at night.

Like I mentioned these type of lace tops never date so don’t afraid to purchase one if you are not already an owner..I guarantee you this type of top will be the one that you pull out from your wardrobe to wear, time and time again. As this was purchased in January I have found similar ones for you here, here herehere and here

As I said above I have also paired this top with Blush pants from Zara and nude heels and it goes perfectly together too. See pic below.

All pictures above apart from the last picture were taken by Emer Irish Fashaholic

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you have any questions just drop me a message

Until next time

Embellished Jumpers

FashionMy Style

Embellished jumpers are definitely ones to have hanging in your wardrobe, Why’s that you ask? Well because they are easily dressed up or dressed down. And so handy to make you look good, even if you don’t feel it.

embellished top

The beauty about embellished jumpers is they can look good with anything, jeans, and skirts.

I love this jumper and it is such a statement piece too with the embellishments on it. Its casual yet dressy.

Casual Wear

I had my eye on this for a long time and when I spotted this jumper on sale I simply had to have it. Its from Asos by a brand called Starry Eyed and you’ll find it here. I got it in the petite size and sized down as its quiet a large fit. It’s such a stunning top and everytime I wear it I get asked about it (even from Strangers). I also spotted similar tops here, and here

Here is a closer pic of the detail on the jumper, I have also paired this with my nude/blush tulle skirt from Love Cherish and it looks great with it. The jeans I picked up from Vanilla Boutique and are the Rant and Rave brand for €65, the most comfortable jeans you’ll find and a great fit. Very flattering.

The heels are from Savida and are in stock at the moment (Mine are last years but there is a similar colour in stock at the moment)

So don’t be afraid to add a few embellished tops to the wardrobe as casual wear

Cosy knitwear for Spring weather

FashionFashion and Beauty BlogMy Style

123

I love having some nice cosy jumpers in the wardrobe. The ones that make you feel all snugly when its so cold outside and dull. Or when you don’t want to be all dressed up but yet want to look stylish even if you are layered up like an Eskimo. Hence these fine knitwear jumpers are perfect for the wardrobe, warm enough to layer up yet perfect for a crisp spring day.

138

Now I know I posted this on my facebook page wearing it a slightly different way than it should be worn. Pippa O’Connor posted the same jumper on the same day wearing it the correct way over the shoulders and put me to shame!. Personally I think it can be worn either 🙂 Albeit it I’m no Pippa O’Connor no question about that and over the shoulder is fabulous too 🙂 This is the cosiest jumper I have in the wardrobe, its a fine knit and the wool is ever so soft. You can get this jumper here for €29.95. They are also available in other colours so I may need to invest 🙂

130 (1)

I like the ease of this jumper, where you can throw it on over jeans and I have a couple of different coloured leather skirts that I wear with it too. The blue jeans are from Stradivarius for €19.95 and you’ll find them here

90

I paired it with my Zara military wool coat which is so warm, and goes with everything. Unfortunately its sold out but you will find similar here and here. Nude shoes are from Asos but are sold out, however penneys currently have similar in stock at the moment.

130

So girls if you aren’t in possession of similar jumpers in your wardrobe, id recommend maybe getting some. They are super handy to throw on and great to keep you warm if the weather is anyway cool.

The pics are by the fabulous Irina from Happy Memories Photography who I cant wait to catch up with this week xx

Until next time

How to style a tulle skirt: Part 2

FashionMy Style

IMG_5780

Following up from my previous post on Tulle skirts, here’s another option and how I style mine! This is most definitely a more dressier take!

A tulle skirt always needs a little bit of sparkle to dress it up…now as you well know I’m guilty of this!! (The tulle skirt is as before from @Hazel Comyn designs)

My wardrobe would make a magpie proud…its insane, my husband is bewildered with the amount of loose sequins he finds on his clothes etc! But who can resist?

IMG_5791

This sequin piece is a cape that I picked up months back on Asos. I had no idea where I needed it for but I knew I loved it and had to have it! Low and behold it goes fabulously with a lot of pieces in the wardrobe. For €45 it was a bargain and you’ll find  a few similar ones here

IMG_5788

This is such a fun outfit, the plain white top underneath is penneys picked it up for €5 before summer, and it goes perfectly with the cape. Because there is so much detail in the cape you need to keep everything underneath plain and simple.

IMG_5749

The shoes are the same as the previous post and are an old pair from new look, but similar here

Again hope you like this look

This season its all about the detail, inspiration for designers has been taken from the street, sport, film, fantasy, fairytale, modern art and miltary hence the highstreet has us spoilt for choice!

Oriental Print!

Take inspiration from the far east and add a touch of Orient to your wardrobe. Think floral,silken fabrics, and bright prints. There is plenty of this trend on the highstreet so its time to embrace this beautiful decadent trend.

Mad Metal!!

This trend is taking the fashion industry by storm, from footwear, to dresses.

Think “sci fi fi”looks when it comes to this trend…not for the faint hearted!

Gothic Glam/Femme Fatale!

Gothic glam or the dark femme fatale is dominating the trends for Autumn/Winter. Floaty layers of sheer blacks, Glam goth with lace edgings and layers. Its about the sheer and lace and if you are to invest in one thing make it a sheer/lace top/blouse that can be worn with both denim and evening wear. With this trend keep the neckline high in tops and dresses and not only can you go dark black, try oxblood and midnight blues.

Bomber Jackets!

Bomber jackets are having their moment this year and are continuing to dominate the Autumn/Winter. The jacket doesn’t have to be a one hit wonder either, it can be worn with anything…jeans, tulle skirts, a mini dress with thigh high boots(which are also on trend for this season!) It doesn’t have to be a plain bomber either although the neutral colour palette will allow you wear it with anything. I’m particularly loving the embellished Bomber at the moment but then I am a bit of a magpie!

Loving the burst of colour and fresh new styles that has landed in our highstreet stores.Not to mention the simple shape bags around that have muted tones with minimal fuss (the mustard bag in the center is a perfect example of this trend!). At the other extreme is the novelty bags with their quirky stamps and stars!

My style …Two toned senorita!

My Style

IMG_5166

I am loving the bare shoulders look (cut out shoulders should I say) at the moment, its perfect for hot weather or a night out. I was heading on holidays mid July and had a mad dash to get a few bits for holiday nights out…I spotted this dress on a rail in Zara. I knew before I ever tried it on that it was going into my wardrobe. I had so much fun shooting this with Emer @Irishfashaholic shes such a talented photograher.

IMG_5172

This dress has an amazing top part with its cut out shoulders, thats what sold it for me. It is so comfy yet sexy if that makes sense? And the fit is great and suits my shape.

IMG_5188

A better look at the top part

IMG_5163

It is a fitted dress that’s for sure, when you are pulling it over your head you’ll notice this. As its two tone, its complimentary due to the cut and the eye is drawn up to the top part of the dress. It doesnt stick in all the wrong places.  I paired it with my new look tan suede heels again you’ll find them here

IMG_5195

I wore this dress on holidays and each time I paired it with these @Alex&Ani bracelets. Now who doesn’t love these? I adore the messages and meanings behind these bracelets

IMG_5179

And in case your wondering girls, this little dress was a steal at €29.95. It is in stock in some Zara stores unfortunately it is not online, even when I wanted to order it online after seeing it initially I couldn’t find it so have a look in you local stores. But there is similar dresses to this (just different colours)here and here

Hope you enjoyed this post

Until next time
