Monday blues…Not when you meet an amazing Photographer!

Fashion and Beauty BlogMy Style

7

In this industry the fashion/Blogging industry you meet all different types of people. In Cork there is an amazing network of people with huge support for one another, & in general in the blogger community. At the weekend I had the pleasure of meeting another like minded lady who has a serious passion for all things fashion and an unreal sense of style. She should have been in front of the camera and not behind the lens! I met with Irina from Happy Memories Photography who is an unbelievably talented and very creative photographer but an incredibly nice person. We clicked straight away and had an amazing morning shooting some looks.

Irina is based in the south east coast and photographs Children, families, weddings, fashion and any other type of occasion. She’s also starting to focus on personal branding photography so watch this space! Irina started it about 10 years ago and  trained with some of the best photographers in the UK, USA, Ireland and Russia. Which isn’t really too surprising as she is a very talented lady! I will leave all her details at the bottom of this post so please go follow her as you’ll love what she does.

For our Shoot Saturday I kept the look nice and casual..it was freezing so this wooly jumper kept me nice and snug!

Dungarvan 4

I picked this jumper up in Vanilla Boutique and I love the embroidered detail on it. Its more a dressy, casual type jumper. And so wearable with jeans or leather pants…The bag was a lovely gift from my Hubbie. (Yes I’m spoilt!)

Dungarvan Irina 5

The shoes I featured before and picked these up from Milanoo, they are over two years old but very good quality..these were less than €25  and are still available here.

The jeans are such a lovely blue denim and very comfortable, I picked them up in Stradivarius for a mere €19.95 and the Coat is Penneys a bargain at €35…its lovely and lightweight which will be ideal for Summer (currently in stock)!

I had so much fun working with Irina, she has an amazing ability to put you at ease when taking pictures. You’ll find all her details here and shes a wonderful photographer so go check her out.

The day dress for any wardrobe …My style

FashionFashion and Beauty BlogMy StyleUncategorized

IMG_6552

A girl can never have too many dresses right?? And we always manage to find the perfect dress for a night out..but how impossible is it to find a nice day dress these days..One that will go with any type of boot be it ankle or knee high along with a pair of heels.

This one I spotted flying through Dunnes one day and though it was perfect. It sits so nice on and the shape is so forgiving. Its great paired with heels and ankle boots but for this shoot I popped on a pair of knee highs which I picked up last January in the River Island sales. There is similar here for €54!

IMG_6555

I love the detail in the top part of the dress it has frills and is really pretty. The neckline is lovely too. It is by Savida and there is a few still available in store, it is sold out online. The only thing I will say is size up on this.

IMG_6547

I loved the lenght too and it looks great with opaque tights. I throw a fur collar over it, the collar is vintage but penneys are doing similar and swamp clothing.

So there’s my perfect day time dress for you girls

Hope you like,

Until next time

My christmas party dress!

Fashion and Beauty BlogMy Style

IMG_6568

So there’s been lots of parties over the Christmas..loads of fun to be had…I had one already but we’ve a few planned from Stephens day onwards…now we can all be broke trying to buy some party dresses. But when I spotted this one in Penneys I thought yep this will definitely be worn loads over the Christmas!

IMG_6576

Its so comfy and reminds me a little bit of the self portrait dress except its incredible comfy and not a bit stiff the material that is! Its a lace style but it was the price that surprised me, at €25 it had to go in my wardrobe! It comes in a gorgeous wine colour too but I always think black never goes out of fashion, particularly a little black dress!

IMG_6581

The back of it is so lovely too its see through which makes it even nicer and I love the long sleeves.

IMG_6573

In fact I’m dressed head to toe in Penneys, the fur scarf is penneys last season but they have lots of other colours in stock at the moment..navy, mink, grey and lots of others! The shoes are penneys are so comfy the back detail in the heel is lovely with a lace up.

Hope you liked this look, its such a fun dress and at that price you cant leave it behind!

Until next time

Christmas day outfit -My Style

FashionFashion and Beauty BlogMy Style

So girls I know some of you aren’t fans of getting too dressed up over Christmas as in throwing on tulles, flouncy dresses etc for Christmas day…I could go either way depends on the mood…but as a rule I tend to dress up

This is something I pulled together and figured it would be a nice Christmas day outfit look, its not overly dressy and you can hide a whole christmas turkey underneath!! Bonus!

IMG_6475

The Jumper I picked up from one of my local boutiques Off The Rails Mitchelstown, the brand is new to the store which was recently acquired by Gill and they have beautiful stock. This jumper is unfortunately sold out but she has similar styles of the same brand.

IMG_6482

I love the style of this jumper, although you cant see it, the black trim of the sleeves, shoulders and the bottom is all velvet and the main material is a scuba material. The sleeves are also mesh which I love and it makes the whole jumper very dressy. You can also find similar here and equally dressy jumpers here,  here,and here

IMG_6481

The leather pants are the Freddy ones and you can purchase here. The heels are Dunnes Stores from last year. They were €30 but they have brought out a similar colour which is available in store or here.

IMG_6480

And finally I threw a fur scarf over my jumper, this one I picked up from Penneys last year but they have brought in other colours this year and are only €15.

Pics are by the ever talented Emer Irish Fashaholic we had so much fun shooting this look.

Hope you like it and again any questions just ask

Until next time

Christmas Nights out Mid Week!

Uncategorized

Hey Girls

So as you know there’s going to be tonnes and tonnes of Christmas parties from here on in!! Now for me, if I’m honest this isn’t the case! Mumslife!! Christ my 5 year old has more of a social life than I do 🙂

But there is one or two random mid week nights I have coming up..hence what to wear for a night out mid week??

So this is what I’m going with..Its dressy but simple! Nothing too over the top if its not a Friday/Saturday night..

IMG_6526

Leather pants and a Faux Fur coat..perfect to dress anything up!! And gorgeous and warm for these chilly nights. Like I said its simple and chic.

IMG_6539

I paired the pants with a Lace Shirt from Penneys for €10 which is a bargain as its so comfy and great quality.

IMG_6531

The fabulous Pink & Grey Faux Fur Jacket is from Love Cherish I adore it ..its so comfy and quiet heavy…glammy too! It was €105 which is great value for the quality and they have some in store, so contact the gorgeous girls on 063 21830.

IMG_6525

I adore these watches from Sundial Watches, they are stunning. The unique difference to these watches is they are solar powered. They are beautifully finished and would be the perfect christmas gift. The thing I love most about Sundial watches is they are owned by an Irish Company Calcul based in Shannon, and you know how I feel about supporing local Irish businesses. All the details on how to contact them is on the link above! I was lucky enough to win a competition for one of these pieces (From Yummy Mummy Blog) but I’ve added a few more of their designs on my wishlist for hubbie 😉 A girl can never have enough watches right??

IMG_6540

The pants are the infamous Freddy Jeans, and boy are these leathers amazing..I adore them and they fit perfectly! I got these from my hubbie for my birthday after tormenting him about them for an age! The shoes I got about two years ago from Milanoo delivered for the total sum of €35 I kid you not!!! They are fab! Cari’s Closet are doing these I believe and Penneys have launched similar ones in nude and also a black colour for €19. The YSL Clutch I picked up from Depop and if you re not familiar with this site girls, I recommend you do, as you can pick up some new barely worn high street, designer and vintage pieces for great prices..

All pics are by Emer@Irish Fashaholic and thanks so much to Maeve @LoveCherish for collaborating with me on the Fur Coat!

If you girls have any questions just ask

Until next time

Primarks Spring/Summer 17

FashionFashion and Beauty Blog

Right! I’m here hanging up the Christmas tree but dreaming of Summer!! Don’t get me wrong I adore Christmas and the silly season..but I’m blaming Penneys  in fact they have a lot to answer for 🙂

15107378_1857531687825912_3625501796160497676_nScreenshot_2016-11-27-21-34-03_resized

I just cannot stop thinking about the amazing collection we saw the other day at their Spring Summer launch for 2017…I want to fast forward to Summer right now..the metallics, studs, embroidery was splashed on every piece of clothing you could spot at the launch and it was amazing!!!

15193448_1857531981159216_5528682624626661069_n15203149_1857531954492552_3382064976200319253_n

There is so much choice coming and beautiful pieces, lots of soft pastels and nautical themes…stripes are huge too!

Screenshot_2016-11-27-21-32-47_resized

Gingham design in dresses and tops are creeping in..and bold mustard colours, and watch out for that delicate embroidered lace which I’m still dreaming about. It is divine!

Screenshot_2016-11-27-21-31-29_resized

We were so spoilt, not only with the collection but all the lovely yummy treats on the day including ice cream…now who doesn’t love ice cream on any given day?

Screenshot_2016-11-27-21-33-50_resized

The studded embroidered leather jacket was by far my favourite piece and I cannot wait for it to launch in all stores…I’m sure this beaut will be gone in a flash so we better move quick!!

Screenshot_2016-11-27-21-31-56_resized

Obvious I couldn’t do justice to all the beautiful pieces so here’s a better look of what is to come!

Keeping it girlie with a Bomber jacket

Fashion and Beauty BlogMy Style

IMG_5836

Previously I posted a fab bomber jacket from Vanilla Boutique, and I think I’m currently having a love affair with bombers lately.

They are so easy to just thrown on over anything…this time round I threw them on with a cute skirt, and anything that’s not to hard to dress up or down is always a winner in my books!

IMG_5844

 

This bomber I picked up in new look in the sale for €18, couldnt just leave it there at that price. its a lovely comfy bomber, and the material is soft and breathable not stiff! Some sizes available here.

IMG_5839

The skirt is so comfy and its a fine knit kick out hem skirt from Penneys, there are still some available at the moment. Fringe boots are oldies from Dunne Stores. But you can find similar here.

IMG_5835

The black jumper underneath is Zara which I picked up last year but its a basic piece so they restock it every season and you’ll find it online here.

My hair was styled by the fabulous Aisling all her details are here and I popped a hairband in from New Look that cost me €4.99, my latest obsession by the way!!

All pics were by the Emer Irish Fashaholic  whose talents are never ending..

Pleated skirts…keeping it semi casual!

FashionMy Style

IMG_5892

Pleated skirts are everywhere….similar to the tulle skirt…although not as fuller a skirt.

I love the pleated skirt, I was afraid of it at first as I always thought it would make my hips look larger than they were, but the way they have designed them with more of a floatier feel in the material, tends to sit better on my shape.

IMG_5853

The skirt is penneys and sits lovely, it feels so comfortable too, Asos are currently during a similar one here

IMG_5908

In fact the whole outfit is penneys apart from the headband which is new look and heels as before from Littlewoods for €15 here, the jumper is current stock and can be worn larger or neater which I went for, as my skirt was quiet floaty.

IMG_5859

As I said I paired it with nude heels but for an even more casual look you could pair it with white trainers and it would still look good

How to dress a tulle skirt!

FashionMy Style

IMG_5731

It was all the rage last year and still sticking around this year but perhaps in darker colours…none the less the tulle skirt is here to stay!

I love a tulle skirt, always have a princess moment when I throw one on!! Notions!!! haha This beauty is from Hazel Comyn design. Hazel an Irish designer has amazing pieces and will be featuring her new collection at Cork Fashion week in the next few weeks. Find more beautiful pieces here

They are so feminine and can be worn anyway and still look fabulous. In this post and the next, I’ll share how I dress mine!!

IMG_5751

I love to throw sweatshirts or jumpers over them. And this is one of my favourite ways to wear them. Because a tulle is so dressy its nice to throw something casual on with them (If you don’t want to go all out!!). The beauty about Hazels tulle skirts is you can turn them inside out and wear it as a satin skirt, so its like getting two skirts for one!! Amazing!

IMG_5760

I paired it with this Penneys boat neck fine knit jumper, its just so comfy, goes nicely with the skirt as its not too fussy, just nice and plain. The earrings are parfois for €7.99. Hair was by the fabulous Aisling Kelleher who is a Freelance Bridal & Event hair specialist, I mean she literally done this upstyle in 2 mins no joke!! Shes amazing…find Aisling’s details here

IMG_5749

The shoes are old from New Look (Bit dressy for this outfit but I would also pair flats or white sneakers with this look) Similar heels here

IMG_5746

Pics are by Emer @Irishfashaholic, I can’t tell you enough how much fun we have during these days shooting, Emer has an amazing talent behind the lens!

Hope you guys like the look!

Casual Series: Jeans from day to night

FashionMy StyleUncategorized

IMG_5694

Everyone loves jeans, not only because they go with absolutely everything but are easy to dress up or down

So I couldn’t do a post on jeans,without showing you how to dress from day to night…I had my flats on with these earlier in the day (see previous posts for nude flats ) but by popping on a pair of heels on in the evening I’m ready for a night out!

rsz_20160922_163035_resized

This Bomber is from  Vanilla Boutique and was reduced to €35, its perfect with jeans for day or night time. Its got embellished details running it through it which makes it a little bit dressier. I guess that’s one reason why I love bomber jackets too, they go with everything. Check out a previous post I did a few weeks back on some of my favourite bombers here

rsz_20160922_163004_resized

A closer look of the embellishments running through it!

IMG_5695

Popping a pair of heels can transform any outfit, these heels were a bargain from Littlewoods at €15 which you can find here

Jeans are just super to throw on with any top/jumper/jacket and head out the door, These ones again are the penneys jeans but some of my all time favourite pair of jeans are Salsa and Zara jeans.
