Body suits…the classy style

FashionMy Style

Bodysuits love them or hate them they can be so ideal under certain trousers or skirts…I remember years ago I got a shirt version from benneton and loved it. I wore it to work with trousers and it was ideal as it didnt fall out over your trousers by the end of the day..so you get my drift why they are so handy, no tucking or pulling at your top or shirt as it sits in place….

When I saw this bodysuit from Zara I know it would go with everything , its such a nice fit and has a satin feel (its not satin though its polyester)

As you can see from above, bodysuits wont budge when you’re sitting down and are so comfy, I love the large lapels on this one, the v neck is great for larger busts. If you are self conscious of it gapping you can also throw on a cami underneath (I have done this before and its still looks perfect). With bodysuits they tend to sit in place and hold everything together. This top has shoulder pads too which suits my shape but fear not they are removable!

These trousers I picked up in Born Clothing, they are by a label called Lost ink, who design pieces that are a little bit quirky. These wool culottes are my current favourite thing in the wardrobe and they go with numerous tops and jumpers. They were a great buy and really warm for this type of weather. You will find them available in Born Clothing in wilton so maybe check with them, they were great value at €54.99 but unfortunately and unsurprising they are sold out online.

These earrings girls were an absolute bargain …I bought them on aliexpress for €2.95 and I love them, that included delivery by the way!! You will find loads of fab pieces and you’ll find the exact pair above here.

So if you are apprehensive about buying a bodysuit dont be ladies as they are quiet comfy (even though its more time consuming in the bathroom!!) but they are nice and neat tucked into skirts or trousers and you wont have the fear of having to fix yourself all night!

Hope you enjoyed…

Until next time

Love

Printed Blazer..my favourite piece in the wardrobe

FashionMy Style

 

This printed Blazer is without a doubt my most covet piece in the wardrobe at the moment. I love a good blazer I think we all do, I have a good few hanging in the wardrobe, all different colours. Some for the colder spring months and early autumn and then the summer ones, but I’ve never had a dressy going out blazer that you’d wear as a top!

The moment I spotted this silky blazer I fell in love…I knew even by looking at it on a hanger it was going to be fab on!  After trying it on I was in love, totally my style and a little quirky.

The back is just as pretty as the front with the swan print, and I just love how tailored it is. The silk material makes it lovely and dressy for a night out.

The belt of the blazer was a bit tricky at first to figure out. Its like a obi belt but the widest part of the belt goes to the front and then you wrap the rest of it around your waist tying a bow (the thinnest part of the belt) over the widest part at the front (I had a few of you inquiring about this on snap chat!) I pair it with a nude camisole (this one is from Dunnes) but you can also pair a black cami or a bralette underneath if your daring enough, I would love to but I’m a bit too top heavy to nail the bralette look!

I have this blazer a good while now, over a month but thankfully it is still in stock. I picked it up in Zara and was €79.95 definitely a bit more expensive that my usual purchases but absolutely worth every penny. I love it! It is still in stock and you can also find it online here. I paired it with my River Island Leathers but unfortunately they are no longer in stock. You will find similar here.

Hope you enjoyed this look

Until next time

This seasons biker jacket!

My Style

This seasons biker jacket i am loving..

You know when your looking for a casual jacket but the denim jacket just wont suffice as its just too casual for that dressy casual look that you are trying to pull off?? Well this seasons jacket that’s in every highstreet you could possibly think of is perfect and its the biker jacket…but in the pastel colours!

Its the perfect type of jacket to turn a casual look into a slightly dressier look than normal. It works with pretty much everything! You may have seen me wear it in a recent post with a dress I picked up in Debenhams, if you haven’t you’ll find the post here.

I love the colours that are available in these type of jackets and the fact that its a soft suede makes it nice and warm and not too heavy if that makes sense. Mind you, it needs to be looked after as it can easily get stained. I picked a blush pink as it goes with everything. I have spottted nice baby blues and beige also and they are equally nice. I picked this up in Stradivarius for €45.95 so it didn’t cost an arm and a leg. You’ll find it here I’ve also spotted similar in Zara but a little bit more expensive.

I kept the look simple and casual and paired it with this simple frill top from Penneys which was only €12 or something like that. Got it about a month ago although I know they are still in stock. Zara have a similar top to that here I also paired it with my black noisy may jeans which you’ll find here. The bag is parfois as before. It just goes with every outfit.

Thanks to the beautiful Irina from Happy Memories Photography for all the fab pics.

Hope you enjoyed the post, any questions just ask.

Until next time

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 €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 €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!

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 €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

Communions and what to wear Part 1

Fashion and Beauty BlogMy Style

IMG_7121

Around this time I always get the private messages from my fabulous girls looking for a communion/confirmation outfit. Whatever it is there is always a panic about what to wear for these two particular occasions. Is it because its neither a wedding or a dinner and its somewhere in between?..I guess we all seem to put pressure on ourselves for these particular occasions. Unnecessary pressure too, seriously girls if you think hard enough about it, I’d bet you have something sitting in your wardrobe already you just haven’t thought about how to wear it differently.

For example take this skirt in the pic above, this is old about a year or two old. Its a Penney’s skirt a bargain buy and as I have two communions this year to my two equally gorgeous nieces, I’ve had to wreck my brains and wardrobe as to what to wear as I don’t want to purchase something new that I might never wear again! Hence why this skirt was pulled out.

IMG_7103

Its a neutral pink colour and can be matched with all different types of other colours, grey’s, whites you name it. I know there is similar skirts available here here, & here. Its a nice colour and the midi lenght is suitable for this type of occasion.  The beauty about the colour of this skirt is its always in season, and perfect for summer too. Its always good to have a neutral colour skirt like this hanging in the wardrobe as you’ll wear it over and over again.

IMG_7116

I paired it with a lace tshirt I picked up before christmas in Zara. They are still in stock as they are proving to be very popular and go with absolutely everything in the wardrobe. At €17.95 they are so affordable too. You’ll find them here, just make sure you pair them with high waisted skirts or jeans as it is a slight bit short in lenght. Lace tends to look good with everything and this two together work perfectly and are dressy enough for a communion.

The shoes are Savida and old stock but any nude heel/sandal or black heels will work with an outfit like this.

IMG_7108

I’ll pull together more looks in the next few days to help you figure out what to wear, I also think girls, skirts and tops are a nice change to wearing dresses for these type of occasion. Plus you have more of a chance of wearing the outfit again be it a top with jeans or the skirt with a different type of top.

Hope this helps and stay tuned for more

Until next time

Love Pam

My Style and a little boutique in the south east!

FashionMy Style

IMG_7153

Girls

You all know I’m all about affordable fashion and supporting local boutiques or not even local but Irish owned Boutiques.. I’ve said it so many times, everyone should pop into their local boutiques, you’ll be surprised what you’ll find and how inexpensive it can be…Everyone has this misconception that boutiques are expensive…yes some are but the majority of our Irish owned boutiques aren’t and you can find some lovely affordable pieces for any occasion. Times have changed and I have got some gorgeous pieces in the last few years from Irish owned Boutiques…

If you saw on my Facebook page the other night, I popped into a little gem of a shop located in the south east of Ireland, and discovered some beautiful pieces. In the thriving town of Dungarvan lies a Boutique called Signet-Boutique  it’s so pretty, they have an amazing collection and you’ll always find something that little bit special here. I’m lucky I visit Dungarvan a lot as my lovely sister lives there, so its hard not to pop into it when I’m visiting! Finola and the girls are incredibly helpful and so lovely. Last Saturday I popped in for a quick look, and let me tell you its never quick as you’ll be seduced by the stock!! So here’s a look at what I picked up ….

Crop pic of top

I adore this top from Signet its one of those tops that is perfect for a night out or catch up with the girls during the daytime/evening time, its dressy but can be worn casual. The detail on this top is incredible. I love the bow part and hems on the sleeves as they are all sequins while the rest of the top is a t-shirt type material. It is the most comfiest top I’ve worn. At  €59.99 it definitely looks a lot more!!

IMG_7150

I paired the Top with my Freddy Leathers which you may have noticed I wear to death, I didn’t pick the leathers up in Signet but guess what ladies? Signet stock the freddy jeans and leathers!! Another good reason for you to pop in!!

IMG_7141

Anytime I wear these leather pants I’m inundated with questions about them! They are extremely comfy and true to size.

Crop pic of heels

The heels are my all time bargain, picked these up in Penneys for €16 .. love them!

So girls do pop into Signet if you live or are down near the area, I promise you won’t be disappointed, they are also on facebook and I’m pretty sure they’ll take orders online!! This top is only one of many fabulous pieces they have in stock. Their link is here

Lots more looks in the pipeline and pretty busy for the next few weeks, but can I just thank Emer Irish Fashaholic for these amazing pictures. And how beautiful are the interiors in the Penthouse of the Clayton Hotel Cork City, want them for my own house :). I love working with Emer, always great fun and chats, and I wish her the best of luck with her new arrival on the way in a few weeks xx

Until next time

Monday blues…Not when you meet an amazing Photographer!

Fashion and Beauty BlogMy Style

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)!
