Style Alert – Front and Back Earrings

Hi ladies

Hope you are all enjoying a lazy Sunday 😊

I’m mad about these back and front earrings, not sure where started the trend first, but they seem to be in every shop! I have a few pairs from Penneys and River Island. The below are all from RI and are available on the website here right now. 

I think they are a fab way of adding some extra detail to an outfit. 

 

  

  

  

  

  

 What do you think? Love or hate?

New Style on the Block

Happy St Patrick’s Day!
Today was just fabulous, bright blue sky and decidedly warmer than last week. We climbed Cardiac Hill in Killarney this morning, it was stunning. In town, the streets were full of people dressed in green, children in buggies with balloons and of course lots and lots of people having drinks – what a pity that tomorrow is Wednesday! To that effect, I’m back on the couch browsing the constant influx of new pieces into pretty much every store (but not buying🙊 next instalment of my #40DaysWithoutShopping is coming soon).
Here are some new pieces from River Island

Happy Browsing😜

Manchester We Love You

What a weekend!
We stayed in the Midland Hotel-it was just fantastic. Rooms were stunning, food was great and the location was just perfect. We seemed to be only a 5 minute walk/taxi ride from everywhere we wanted to go!
Tiger Tiger was our venue for most of Saturday. We went to Roller Disco!! It was the best fun, and of course we were in our 80s gear which was just hilarious!
On Sunday we hit the shops…wowsers the shopping did not disappoint! We went to the Arndale Shopping Centre. It was great, had all of our high street favourites, from River Island, to Top Shop and even Starbucks-because we all need a caffeine fix 😋
We then hit Selfridges. It’s my personal favourite department store. I just feel happy in there! We got our MAC fix, and then browsed the wonders of Mulberry, Chanel, Tiffany and our true love Michael Kors.
We went for Cocktails in Mr Coopers at the Midland Hotel, and also went to Grand Pacific at Australasia and Neighbourhood.

We flew Shannon-Manchester with Ryanair.

All in all we had a ball, as did our gorgeous Hen🐔👰

Until next time Manchester!

40 Days Without Shopping – Day 20

So yesterday I had a slip up. Not just a small slip up, a massive one! 😭
I was in Manchester with the girls on a hen party, and the shopping was just too good. Now I didn’t buy anything too frivolous, just some essentials (MAC and River Island😂) However, I have picked myself up, dusted myself off, and am back on the No Shopping road.
I am disappointed, but it just goes to show that we are all human (and that I’m seriously addicted to shopping!!).
The girls are trying to console me with the fact that it was a Sunday, and apparently Sunday’s don’t count??! I’m not so sure about that!!
Wish me luck for the rest of my sentence…20 more days.

Until next time!

Slogan Envy

Hey guys!

I hope you are all having a good week!

Slogan tops are really popular at the moment, and I have to say I am a big fan. They are fun, and a really cool way to express yourself! Whenever I see a one that I love, I’m immediately on the hunt to put an outfit together for it.

They can be worn in lots of ways, from over skinny jeans and converse, to a skirt with ankle boots. I love to add a statement necklace over a slogan sweatshirt, then it’s instantly dressy.

Top Tip: I find the boyfriend styles aren’t a great style on me, I prefer a more fitted shape, so I would always get these in at least one size smaller than usual.

Cosy Christmas

Happy Sunday Ladies!

I hope you all had a great Black Friday Weekend!

Less than 4 weeks to go to Christmas! I cannot wait!! I absolutely adore Christmas. It is my favourite time of the year. I really do wish it could be Christmas every day, but my poor Credit Card will be delighted when it’s over!!

One of the girls asked me to do a post on long-sleeved dresses, so I decided to incorporate it into a Christmas Day wear post. Every year we struggle (well I do anyway) with what to wear on Christmas Day. It’s a day that you are spending with your nearest and dearest, and they will think you look great no matter what, but at the same time you want to look lovely as it is just such a fab day.

There are so many different family traditions from spending the day at home with just the family, visiting friends or even the Christmas Day swim, so while it’s important to look your best, your look also needs to be functional!!

I love jumper dresses at the moment. I got a fab one in Penneys a fewAnkle boots weeks ago, which I will be wearing on Christmas Day with tights and my much adored River Island ankle boots, similar to these, which you can buy here

 
Oasis has fab casual dresses at the moment; these are some that I love right now:

Pair these beauties with ankle boots and tights!

 

 

If you are more partial to trousers for Christmas Day, what about these lovelies from River Island:

PicMonkey CollageBlack and White dog-tooth Cigarette Trousers €55 – buy here

Green Floral Print Cigarette Pants €60 – buy here

Pair these with a simple black top, a statement necklace and some ankle boots. You can also wear them out with a pretty top and some killer heels afterwards, or dress them down for a shopping trip/casual Friday with some cute flats.

Don’t forget, if you are leaving the house at all, it is an opportunity to showcase your fab winter coat. Need some coat inspiration? Check out my post on Winter Warmers.

Let me know via the comments below what you will be wearing on Christmas Day.

As always, happy shopping!

Bags of Style

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I trust you are all having a suitably stylish weekend.

At the moment (and pretty much always if I’m honest!) I am obsessed with bags. Cross Body Bags are my true  love right now. They are just perfect for everything, whether it’s shopping, going out, work or holidays, there is a Cross Body Bag to fit the bill.

They also make great presents (hint hint guys!!).

These are just some of my favourites at the moment.

Happy Shopping!
