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 🙂 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 €48, and the Top from H&M was €29.99 and still in store and online here

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

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 €23 and they are a lovely fit or you will find similar from Oasis here for €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 €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!

Spring Style Sensation at Athlone Town Centre.

FashionFashion and Beauty Blog

Spring summer fashion 2017

What a weekend, chaos filled with fun and fashion and all sorts of gorgeousness! Last weekend Athlone Town Centre held their spring style sensation event showcasing all their collections for Spring summer Fashion 2017 that are available from all the stores. These included some of the top high street retailers and if you’re not familiar with the centre, then here s a post I done previously on all that Athlone Town Centre has to offer.

Myself, Shona from Sho Style and Tanya My little love stories (Two equally stylish bloggers) were asked to host our own style sections throughout each fashion show which were 1pm, 2pm & 3pm. First up was Shona and she pulled some fabulous looks which you can see more of here, followed by myself. I was delighted to be invited and given the opportunity to style some looks for the show and talk through the looks. It wasn’t something I have ever done before and surprisingly I as nervous as I thought i’d be…I think when you love and are passionate about something it helps and with all that Athlone town centre has to offer it made it that bit easier! The show was MC’d by the beautiful Holly Carpenter who was very down to earth and relaxed.

I was given 6 looks to choose, from a selection of stores, H&M, Quiz Clothing, Born Clothing, Oasis, Warehouse, and Topshop.

First Look was from Born Clothing worn by the gorgeous Katie.

17191908_10155115863601133_2288346355669468617_o

This was one of my favourite looks from the Collection as I love the versatility of a jumpsuit particularly this culotte jumpsuit. Its the perfect colour for spring/summer and for me its something I would wear to a communion or event. It is lovely and tailored and smart too, Its that little bit different to wearing a dress and will worn time and time again. This jumpsuit is by closet and retails for around €104 and is available  in all sizes ranging from 8 to a size 16. The bag €30 and shoes €35 were by Shoe Lace a fabulous shoe shop in the Centre. You’ll find all details for shoe lace boutique here

2nd Look was from Warehouse and worn by the stunning Victoria.

17097295_10155115864016133_6434755551962319341_o

This dress I want, it is so my style and I love the easiness of it. This is the kind of dress you can wear for a night out with the girls or dinner with your other half. I’d also wear this during the day but change the look by pairing it with ankle boots and a leather jacket. The dress retails at €61 which is a great price, my all time favourite and adding this to the wardrobe! These laser cut lace up heels are fab with this and are €35 from Shoe Lace.

3rd Look was from Oasis Clothing worn by the wonderful Dearbhla (an absolute lady)

Athlone Town Centre

I kept this look casual, as I’m a mum of two and always on the go with school runs, after school activities. I always have other things on myself while the kids are in school, so I wanted to do a dressy casual every day look. Its a look where all the pieces can be worn separately with anything else in your wardrobe. Oasis is perfect for those casual bits that everyone needs in their wardrobe and will be worn over and over again.This look can also be worn with white trainers too. The jeans are “Jade” and €51, the Flamingo Jumper (which I adore) is €52, Boyfriend Blazer is €52, Mia Multi strap heels €50, and star satchel €37.

4th look was from Quiz worn by the beautiful Ciara.

20170307_205814

This is actually a dress, but I styled the Dress with Jeans. I used it as a Top instead of a dress, I found it was more of a tunic style and with the height of Ciara it looked better as a top. Its a great look for the summer, dressed up with heels as above or flats for a day time look. Also on holidays you could wear the dress on its own. The Dress is €32.49, Jeans are €35.09 and Beige lace up heels are €45.49.

5th look was from Topshop worn by the elegant Aisling.

17159004_10155115866211133_326196710350078507_o

This popper skirt is divine, it is an off white suede colour but would go with anything, I paired it with black but you could also wear a brighter colour with it. It is a midi lenght but very flattering on any shape. it has an underskirt so that it doesn’t rise to high up the thigh. This type of outfit I would wear attending a relations communion, dinner or any family occasion. You could wear this other ways too by dressing it up with a black cami and biker jacket. Another one of my favourite of the day. The skirt is retailing at €68 and Jumper is €36, and the shoes are the models own.

Final look was from H&M and worn by the gorgeous Molly.

17157674_10155115865016133_1349952082012508823_o

This can be either a work to night out look, again all pieces can be worn seperately with other things in your wardrobe. The coat is fabulous and very tailored. It’s also a lovely lenght. Its retailed at €79.99, the blouse I adore and comes in other colours too, its a slight nod to the frill trend at the moment and again it can be worn with other items in the wardrobe.  This blouse retails at €24.99 and the trousers are €29.99.

It was so much fun and a great experience, a tad nerve wrecking as it can be daunting speaking to a large crowd, thanks to Holly for helping me to relax, and can I say well done to Tanya and Shona in their segments too.

17039374_10155115867076133_7680928740897878248_o

We had a fantastic day from start to finish, a huge thank you to Shirley and Aoife  and all the team at Athlone Town Centre for all their support and help. And for the beautiful and Professional Mandy and her equally gorgeous models at Catwalk Models.

Embellished Jackets

FashionFashion and Beauty BlogMy Style

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 €19.05 they are a steal and you’ll find them here. The heels are current and from Penneys, they were €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 €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 €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!

Until next time

My Style: Keeping it casual with addidas originals

My Style

Hi Girls

Now who doesn’t love just throwing on a pair of trainers and keeping it casual.

With two little nippers I find myself reaching for flats on a daily basis. But wearing trainers doesn’t have to look boring…Keeping things casual can look good too!

I love a nice jacket with trainers and jeans

This coat you have seen on my Instagram page so many times, yes I live in it but its so comfy.

I picked it up in Penneys a few months back and for €40 it was the best buy

So heres my current favourite Trainers..these are the addidas superstars..they are the comfiest pair and I love the gold on the addidas logo…you can purchase those here and here

I pair mine with crop jeans as it looks nicer! And Im such a shortie so crop always helps

I’ve paired my trainers with Blue Denim Cropped Jeans from Stradivarius €19.95 here and Lace Bomber again Stradivarius €19.95 available here.

The top of the bomber is almost see through and nice and light so perfect for Summer. The chain which isnt as clear in this pic is from My shining Armour and available here, I love it as its so delicate.

The watch is Guess bought from Fields and I adore this Stella & Dot bracelet I bought from Leona here, the colours are perfect for the summer.

And finally I am having a strange obsession with Headbands lately…they are so handy if you just want to throw up your hair, when you’re in a rush but still want it to look pretty..loving them!! This one above was a bargain from HM for €5.95,

So don’t be shy about purchasing Trainers girls, as they are so easy to dress up and can look chic.

Hope you like my style and do tell me what’s your favourite trainer?

Had so much fun doing this shoot with the lovely @thetwodarlings and @leanmeanmomma, who are quiet the photographers!

Until next time my lovelies

Have a great week

Pam
