Party Time

Topshop Dress, Bag, Necklace, Rings // River Island Fur Gilet // Boohoo Litas // MK Watch

This is a post of one of my going out outfits over the Christmas. My girls and I went out at home and this is the outfit I wore. Oh and yes I am over wearing my Litas but if you have a pair, you will understand how comfortable they are. No tired feet the next day.

My Topshop dress is Midi length, i cropped it up shorter for the night out. My Leather Bag is my latest buy from Topshop that i bought on the day the sale started, i couldn't handle the crazy grabbing off the sale racks so i went around else where and found my new love. I love leather bags, the more wear they get the better they look and ill have it all my life. You can make a clutch out of it so that is how i wore this night after the photos were taken. Clutches are just more dressy with a outfit but a nightmare to be holding the whole night.
You have seen my chunky necklace in my other post "Holly & Mistletoe". It is one of my fave pieces at the moment along with my rings.

This River Island Gilet is years old and still remains one of my best items. Casual or dressed up it always looks great, i got it in Liverpool. Still one of my most loved shopping areas.

Thank you for reading and following me.
Happy Holidays and a Prosperous New Year...

Christmas Day

Topshop Gilet, Dress, Boots, Gloves & Necklace //  Missselfridge Coat // MK Bracelets & Watch

Hope ye all had a amazing Christmas and ye all got spoilt. This was my outfit for Christmas day at home with my family. As i was taking the photos a friendly friend popped his head in the photo with me. 

 I have bought this black gilet as a Christmas present to myself. The fur is lovely, not too bulky and very soft. I have been looking for a black fur gilet for a while. This is the nicest fur I have seen, not too heavy and perfect for layering.
I love these t-shirt dresses like you have seen in my "Birmingham" post, see here. I have fallen in love with these green shades at the moment, it complements blonde hair. Staying with Topshop my leather gloves are a Christmas gift from my brother in-law, 3 years ago now and are still my favorite. They have a zip with tassel detail at the end. Found my necklace in the Topshop sale for half price was very happy cause i wanted it before the sale.
Can i just say how crazy people are when it comes to sales, we popped into the Topshop sale St Stephans day and my god people are just insane, grabbing all they can off the racks. Wasn't my kinda scene I like to enjoy my shopping in comfort, full price or half price. 
I got my coat last Christmas as a Christmas present and i adore it. The faux fur collar and cuffs. So elegant, i always feel so dressed up when i am wearing it. And yes i am in love with faux fur!

Christmas Eve

River Island Coat - Topshop Necklace - Zara Leather Pants, Boots - Penny TShirt - MK Watch - McCarthys Jewellery Bracelet & Charm
Merry Christmas Everyone!
Here is my Christmas Eve outfit from yesterday. I spent most of my day at home with my family relaxing, eating and drinking. Christmas is that time of year when everyone slows down and takes the time out to chill out with the family. Nothing to do and nowhere to be, cannot get any better.
I wore my new coat from RI I bought on my last shopping trip with my Mother and Sister. It was on sale for 55euro and couldn't leave it behind. The boyfriend oversized coats have been my favourite fashion trend for these past couple of years. This coat covers all aspects, you look dressy, your definitely warm, and you can wear this with anything.
Really pleased with these trousers - they are biker style in a coated fabric from Zara. I really like the zips and quilting. They have a bit of stretch so are really comfortable. My suede studded boots from Zara are also very comfortable. I spotted Millie Mackintosh in Made in Chelsea episode wearing them but the cream version and they looked really good. Love her style.
My bracelet is a very special present my Mother and Sister bought for me. Its a brown fabric rope like bracelet with the gold star charm. Personally myself I don't like the typical charm bracelets from Pandora or Thomas Sabo for instance. This is perfect for my style and taste, plus its more casual and I can wear it all the time. Its a brand called Story that you will find in McCarthys Jewellers Galway. They have such beautiful and affordable jewellery. You can find there Facebook page here

Christmas Baby

Topshop Crombie Coat, Bag & Earrings - H&M Trousers - New Look Shoes - Pennys Shirt & Brooch - MK Watch  

Last night myself and my Boyfriends two Sisters and Mother went for dinner. It was his sister Emers Birthday, A girls night out. We went to one of my favourite restaurants, White Gables in Moycullen and its was to say the least, delicious as always. Food and Fine Wine, what more could a girl ask for.
The photos above are of the outfit I wore to dinner. I wanted to go for a comfortable dressy look and I was defiantly comfortable. My New Court shoes are just the perfect height for dinner, not too high and still feel dressed up. You seen these in my last post 'Photo Haul', where I bought them this week and I cannot get enough of pointed heels at the moment. Along with all the skinny and cigarette trousers raging at the moment, so hard to choose which ones to buy but I am very happy with these ones I found in H&M, Again... Comfort! The material of these trousers are beautiful and they sit great on your hips with the elasticated waist.
In my very first post ye will remember me wearing this burgundy shirt from Pennys for just 10euro. They come in so many different colours, they are a must have for when your suck for a outfit. You can never go wrong with a smart looking skirt, with a skirt, shorts or trousers button it up and add a chunky necklace and away you go, beautiful! Cant get enough of statement chunky necklaces if I haven't already mentioned it, go buy one, its a investment cause you can wear it with anything and it will change any sort of outfit.
Now finally my new amazing faux leather Topshop bag, what a baby. So delighted I went and bought after craving over it for awhile. Went great with my outfit to match my shirt, burgundy is a great colour this season and its one of my favourite. Its warm & cheerful.
Happy Birthday Emer!

Photo Haul

Topshop bag
H&M and Pennys
New Look

So since i have all my Christmas shopping done and dusted (even wrapped) it was time to do some ME shopping. I went on a little shopping trip with my Sister and Mother. We had a great day out although I am tired now. So just to shared with ye all, some of the items i purchased today.

From the top down i got this bag in Topshop, i have been eyeing it up for awhile and for 38 euro its a steal. Smooth, burgundy faux leather and rich suede black fabric, fashionable crossbody bag.

I am obsessed with what you can call  pegsdrainpipesstovepipesAsian tight-pantscigarette pantsskinny pants trousers this season. Today I found a pair in both Pennys (Primark) and H&M. They have a snug fit through the legs and they give you this sophisticated look that i cant wait to be wearing over the Christmas. Shirts will go great with these, long sleeve or sleeveless.

The H&M blazer was most definitely the best buy today, i have been searching for a ivory blazer for a long time now and today i came across this one on sale in H&M for just 20 euro!! Nice! Its a great fit, really tailored and figure hugging.

My adorable little penguin guy is a Christmas tree decoration but he will be going in my car, too cute.
Finally my new sexy court heels, from New Look. A other bargain today, i have been on a search for court shoes too and these are what i got. The last pointed shoes i bought were back in 2007 and these are the first ones i have bought since, so glad they are all back in this season. These will go amazing with my new cigarette trousers to complete my sophisticated look.

Holly & Mistletoe


Topshop T-Shirt, Necklace & Rings. H&M Leather Skirt, Pennys Vintage Like Bag & Socks, Boohoo Litas, MK Watch
Last Saturday night I was out again for my friends birthday and this is a quick photo shoot of my outfit that I wore.
I knew it was going to be along night of dancing so I needed to wear my Litas for comfort without a doubt. So since I wanted to be comfortable cause it was such a chilly night outside, I went for casual t-shirt in a classic leather skirt, casual/dressy look.
 Added the chunky chain for some great detail to my simple outfit and keep my arms simple with just my Michael KorsOversized Golden Lexington chronograph watch.
I love wearing socks with boots, its a cute detail to add to your outfit. I have a drawer full of trim socks from Topshop and Pennys. They go great over black tights for a pop of colour. I found these green socks in a pack of 3 in Pennys, came with mustard and burgundy colour also. Lovely toasty colours for the winter season.
Would you believe I got my burgundy vintage like bag in Pennys?

Have A Look At My

All the Castles

Zara Kaki shirt,Pennys (Primark) Blouse/Scarf/Boots, Forever21 skirt, Michael Kors Bag

Last sunday myself and my boyfriend went on a little road trip and we landed at Ashford Castle, wow what a magical place. It's so beautiful inside and the grounds around the area is just wonderful. Its a place where every girl would dream to get married. I couldn't resist but take a few photos of my outfit around the grounds outside.

My Zara green shirt came from New York, it's so versatile it can be worn casual or dressed up with a pair of skinny jeans tugged in.

Pennys have the most beautiful shirts for €10-€18, this one has a crochet collar it's adorable, will go nice inside little jumpers with the collar sticking out over the top. I have my scarf for a few years, it's vintage like.

Love this gold pleated skirt, I love everything pleated. I was looking for one for a long time and I came across this for half  nothing in Forever 21. I find Forever 21 is hit and miss shop. I find alot of there things are very bad quality and tacky so i was very happy with my find.

Topshop Dress/Earrings, Necklace Miss Selfridge, New Look Bag, Boohoo Litas

This is the outfit i wore when we went to Birmingham for a Christening a few weeks back.
Long, midi length dresses have overtaken their mini counterparts as the must-have piece. Elegant, figure-hugging pencil skirts, inspired by 1950s fashion styles are now the most popular design on the high street. 
Over two years old now, the Lita is now anything but new and still going strong. And even though new colour ways come out each season (or what seems like everyday), the designers at JC haven’t run out of ideas yet. We’ve seen solid colours, glitter, buckles, fur, floral, studs, zebra, leopard, woven leather–even a very patriotic American flag motif. Mine are surely not the real thing, Litas are found everywhere, Boohoo, Missguided, River Island and I even seen ones this week in Pennys. I
love wearing these out because they have to be the most comfortable boot.

Because of my simple outfit, I added this statement necklace and simple green earrings to match my bag/clutch .
