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 ūüôā

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 ‚ā¨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 ‚ā¨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¬†here,¬†here¬†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.

Until next time

A pretty skirt for any occassion

FashionMy Style

A pretty skirt for any occasion is very hard come by…I kid you not. So when I spotted this one I simply had to have it..its that one skirt you can wear during the day its dressy but with a hint of sexy with the lace hem…

Most importantly you can wear it during the day or night..you can dress it down with a grungy tshirt and converse and its got that nice edgy casual look if you are brave enough to pull it off!

I on the other hand, am not that brave sometimes, maybe its my height that restricts me from being more edgy but I stuck to safe for this look..But first lets talk about this skirt!

I adored it from the moment I saw it in¬†Bella Dungarvan¬†I bought it instantly and even though I had nothing or no clue what to wear it with I simply had to have it…its a pleated skirt but with a delicate almost see through lace hem! It is so feminine which i love and even though its pleated its tulle material.

Its slightly high waisted again another bonus as it hides a multitude and trust me I have things to hide ūüôā Its the perfect colour to carry you through the Spring/Summer season.

I paired this skirt with a simple white fine knit jumper from H&M, I will however wear it with a simple cami over the summer for a night out. The reason for pairing it with a knit is a have two of my gorgeous nieces communions coming up and feel this will be perfect to wear for either of their communions. Understated!

The skirt was ‚ā¨48, and the Top from H&M was ‚ā¨29.99 and still in store and online¬†here

The bag was a gift from my Brother but its by Parfois.

Hope you like this post and any questions just ask

Until next time

Savida’s Perfect Red & Pink Print Dress, ideal for bursting into the Spring Summer Season!

FashionMy Style

SavidaSavida’s red and pink print dress is an absolutely beauty to wear throughout Spring/Summer. This dress was kindly given to my by Savida for¬†Dunnes Stores. It has the most beautiful print and such vibrant colours, I instantly fell in love.

dress

It is an unbelievably flattering dress as its seam waisted and skims the stomach area. I love the fact it is midi lenght and even at 5’5 it is perfect for me. It is such a high quality dress, with 100% polyester lining, and even after washing it (which you can do at a 40 degree wash) it hasn’t lost it shape or vibrancy!

daytime dress

Its always so hard to find a nice dress with long sleeves and this one from Savida is perfect, I know I keep mentioning it but I cannot get over the quality. This dress is ‚ā¨50 but in my opinion it looks way more expensive and such good value

I paired a belt with the dress as it cinches and defines the waist even more but you don’t need to do this at all. It looks good with or without a belt.

I wore the Savida dress with these New look block heels as I feel they’ll work in the daytime and nighttime during the summer months. And I’ve even worn this dress with beige ankle boots and it looks fab. Its the perfect dress from going from day to evening time, its so versatile which is another reason I love it so much. The bag is TK Maxx and was ‚ā¨19.99. You’ll find the heels here¬†and more importantly you will find the dress¬†here online¬†and it is also available in stores now!

So girls I’d advise you hightail it to Savida ¬†fairly rapidly, as since wearing this dress at an event last Saturday, I have been inundated with questions about it and I know a few of you managed to snap it up..its amazing and even better in real life!!

Hope you enjoyed the post and I’ll have loads more looks to follow

Until next time

Savida: A cut above the rest!!

FashionFashion and Beauty Blog
Flamingo Dress
Savida

Savida, a label worth knowing! Last Wednesday I was kindly invited to pop into¬†Dunnes Stores¬†head office for a sneak preview of what’s to come into their stores for the Savida and Gallery Collections…

I am a huge fan of Savida (see previous post on collections I’ve worn) and I love to see how much it has evolved & grown in the past two years…To say I was impressed with the amount of hard work that has gone into pulling & selecting the collections is an understatement. They have some AMAZING quality pieces coming into the stores, now and in the next coming months. I had the opportunity to with meet with the fabulous and talented buyers who talked me through the collections piece by piece.

I never fully understood the amount of thought, blood, sweat and tears that the buyers go through in pulling a collection that is worthy to land on their store floors, and this visit was certainly an eye opener for me!

First up Savida, I am already a fan of this label and I adore their recent collections, they are young, chic and incredibly stylish but practical at the same time. There is something for everyone in their collections for summer, and the vibrant colours add lots of fun to it.

I love the variety available at Savida currently, there is something for everyone, practical items but with subtle details, making it that bit more unique. Colours are prominent, but the palettes chosen are wearable time and time again! Every collection coming up in the next few months all have a different palette. Blues and Yellows are visible for the current collection, yet reds, bright pinks, whites, navy’s, stripes are all more dominant in up and coming collections. All very wearable and pieces that will take you further into the autumn season too!

Savida have thought of every type of scenario or occasion (christening, bbq. summer party, races, communion) you might have, and created a collection for a strong busy woman..perception has always been that Dunnes is where your “mum” shopped for clothes, but this current mum who shops in Savida is young, trendy and very fashionable! The collection is younger and appeals to every sort of woman, the working professional in their 20’s, the busy but fashionable mom, the socialite girl, Savida has something for all these confident sophisticated ladies!

Savida have worked hard to change this perception of their clothing and have found the direction in where their collection is going, its remarkable how in such a short space of time they really have evolved and young fashionistas are sitting up and starting to notice!

So ladies keep your eyes peeled for these collections to land in-store, I had so many favourites I wanted and am impatiently waiting for them to hit the floor, top of my list is that beautiful giraffe print dress (top pic)….June cannot come quick enough..

I will be showing more of the collection in the next few days. There is so much gorgeous pieces, too much to show here but I will share them on my facebook page here!

Let me know what has caught your eye too and if you have any questions on pricing or when they will be available just send me a message, I be happy to help.

Until next time

Love

Day to night tops!

FashionMy StyleUncategorized

littlewoods Top

Day to night tops are hard come by and when you find one my advise is nab it! This is a great one as its smart for during the day but equally as stylish for a night out with the girls straight after work!

Littlewoods Ireland

I love the lace in the top but I also love the white collar even more, it makes it the perfect day to night top. A monochrome look never dates and this top can be worn with tailored black trousers also. Its from Littlewoods Ireland and designed by none other than Myleene Klass its reduced here to ‚ā¨40.50¬†here.

Here’s a closer look at the top..it has see through sleeves and is see through half way down the back, its so elegant and the fit is true to size. The quality is excellent and very comfortable on. I have also worn this with blue jeans for a more casual look.

Freddy Leathers

Again I am living in this Freddy leather trousers, I can honestly say they were a great buy, I have got more than the price per wear on these. So I’d highly recommend them if you are even considering buying them. The heels are Penneys’ and a great buy as they go with loads in the wardrobe. ¬†This top would look good tucked into a black skater skirt. To finish this look above, I always throw on a camel coat with it and it looks very smart and chic at the same time.

lace top

If you need any more details just ask you can pm on my facebook page here.

I hope you enjoyed this look.

Pics are by the talented and lovely Emer Irish Fashaholic she is so gifted at what she does and its always so much fun working with her.

Until next time

Grey jeans and How to style them: Part 2

FashionMy Style

Grey jeans as you know I have styled with all grey everything in my last post…this time I’ve decided to wear it a different way and to show you how easy it is to style these type of coloured jeans.

Oasis Leather Jacket

On any given day during the week its always nice to dress down, and stay comfy and casual. You’ve heard me mention school runs numerous times and this is one look with the grey jeans I usually go for first thing in the morning. Leather jackets with grey jeans always look good at anytime.

Primark Tshirt

This leather jacket is quiet old, it was a Christmas gift and its by Oasis Clothing. The beauty with Oasis is they make clothes to last and this leather jacket is lasting a lifetime. I love it, it has fur on the collar that is removable, which is an added bonus as its like two jackets in one! You will find Penneys have a similar jacket minus the fur for ‚ā¨23 and they are a lovely fit or you will find similar from Oasis¬†here¬†for ‚ā¨65.

Leather Jacket

I also paired it with a simple grey t-shirt from Primark, its from last year but they have restocked them since. I love these type of tshirt as they dont stick to your body and are loose yet have a little structure. HM are great for these type tshirts and you’ll find them for ‚ā¨7.99¬†here¬†They are great t-shirts for any type of jeans.

Grey Jeans

I’m wearing the same grey jeans as in the previous post but you can find similar¬†here¬†from H&M and¬†Noisy may

The boots are River Island and I live in these, they are extremely comfy and go with everything and are instore and available here

So my advise girls is go get those grey jeans you wont regret it!

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 ‚ā¨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

Jumpsuit.. its slowly becoming a staple piece for the wardrobe!

FashionMy Style

I have a thing for a nice Jumpsuit, I have done for a long time. I particularly love tailored ones. A jumpsuit is easy you don’t really have to put too much thought into it. And best of all it looks well and is easily styled.

lace

This beautiful jumpsuit was from a little boutique in Waterford called¬†Bella Dungarvan¬†its another one of our little gem of Irish Boutiques, and they are constantly stocking gorgeous bits. I spotted this on their facebook page it was on sale for less than ‚ā¨40, and an absolute bargain I had to have it! The girls are so helpful and you can order over the phone too if you are not near the boutique. They update facebook all the time with gorgeous bits that land in store. And girls they constantly have fabulous bits so definitely well worth the follow. As you know I’m all about affordable pieces and they have gorgeous bits that wont break the bank.

Lace jumpsuit

The jumpsuit fitted perfectly, its tailored but the top part which is completely lace add a little bit of elegance to it. I love that its black as black never dates and always looks well. I paired it with these Penneys heels but I would also pair it with sandals too and you can play around with the shoe colour or design.

jumpsuit

Here’s a better look at the top part as you can see its completely lace and I love the fact it has long sleeves. The jumpsuit is by a brand called Closet London, and for me their fit¬†is always true to size and nicely tailored.

Although this is sold out in Bella Boutique but you will find my exact one here or similar jumpsuit here in Zara

Have you a favourite type Jumpsuit?

Until next time

Love Pam

Happy Monday

183

I’m in the midst of packing I hate packing but especially if its just a carry on bag…I mean seriously I have a 101 things I want to bring but impossible to fit…as I’m packing I came across this embellished Jacket. I love embellished jackets or tops as they work with everything!

187

I picked it up in Zara during January, it was on sale and quiet a bargain, unfortunately its now gone but I have seen similar here and here. The thing about these type jackets is there are super for any event ..I paired mine with a casual pair of jeans but leathers would look great with them or skirts or just thrown over a dress/jumpsuit!

161 (1)

The jeans are Stradivarius, they have a slight distressed look and are the most comfiest jeans I own, at ‚ā¨19.05 they are a steal and you’ll find them¬†here. The heels are current and from Penneys, they were ‚ā¨16.

189

The bag is vintage and I adore it, Its a leather Louis Vuitton clutch and I picked it up in an old vintage shop in a London flee market…best buy ever and got it for a steal less than ‚ā¨40!

168

I love a statement earring too if I’m not wearing any necklace, personally I feel if the top/jacket is embellished then you dont need much more than earrings. These are HM and were ‚ā¨9.99 got them December last year but they are still in stock online¬†here

180

Hope you enjoyed this post ladies and any questions just ask, so with that I better get back to my packing and this jacket is coming with me, can wear it day or night!
