Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!!

Although it is still summer I can’t help but find myself still wearing black! The weather here in Ireland isn’t what you would find in Spain, so I can pretty much get away with it!

When transitioning into the Fall season it is the perfect time to start lightly layering, here you will see I am wearing a long chiffon top with a Karki green Kimono over it. This layering is light and definitely suitable for the mild weather!

I paired the outfit with my Topshop amo boots and my beige Kurt Geiger bag.

A/W Trends 17/18

We are nearing the end of the summer, but we are also getting that little bit closer to the Fall season, which means, new fashion! Fall is one of my favourite times of the year, I love the change in the weather and all the comfort it brings along with it!

I thought now would be the perfect time to start looking at the fashion trends that are on their way in, so we can all get our wardrobes ready!

Sparkle

Saint Laurent & Isabel Marant

There was a lot of sparkle on the runway for A/W this year, a lot of designers are hoping to revive the night-time antics by reintroducing sequins, chain mail, and metallic fabrics! Although I am not too excited about sequins, the chain mail will definitely interest me!

How To Style

Dress: €69.95 Boots: €39.95

Both of these items are from ZARA, I immediately fell in love with the dress, as I love the simple A-line shape. The dress is made up of sequins, but is in no way tacky! I paired the dress with these metallic silver pointed toe boots, I think the two pair together would make a lovely outfit for a night out with a few friends! (I have had my eyes on these boots for ages!)

The Suit

Alexander Wang & Stella McCartney

I feel like suits have been popping up a lot lately, but I don’t feel they ever go out of fashion! What I love, is that every time they come back aground, they come around with a new twist! This helps to keep them interesting and makes the suit more fun and less formal!

How To Style

Untitled collage (3)

Jacket: €39.95 Pants: €25.95 Boots: €49.95

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the beauty that is this ZARA suit!! I have never loved a suit as much as I do this one! The pink with the black detailing is just so pretty and perfect for the modern business woman! The trousers are skinny cropped legs, which would pair really nicely with the boots above!

Seventies

Untitled collage (8)

Miu Miu & Prada

It looks like That 70’s Show is going to be hitting out clothing outlets soon! 70’s fashion has been another huge inspiration for the runway this year and to be honest I can’t wait! I’m looking forward to the chunky shoes and flare jeans!

How To Style

Untitled collage (6)

Jeans: €60.00 Trainers: €99.95 T-Shirt: €20.00

For this outfit I wanted to go with a simple 70’s look, and when I think of that I think of wide legged jeans and trainers! The Jeans and T-shirt are both from Topshop and fit in with the 70s theme perfectly! The jeans are my favourite from this outfit, I love the high waist with the belt and the frayed hems!

Soft Leather

Untitled collage (11)

Alexander McQueen & Acne Studios

I was very excited when I seen this trend! I love leather jackets and anything with that rock n roll, biker style! Again I feel like leather pops up a lot, but it is a widely used fabric and popular among everyone, whether you like faux or real!

How To Style

Untitled collage (12)

Dress: €45.95 Boots: €49.95 Tights: €9.95

For this outfit I wanted to keep it simple, so I chose this faux leather dress with ruffles from ZARA, I then paired them with the sock boots and fish net tights. This would definitely be something I would wear. You could even pair the outfit with bright coloured boots to add that extra pop!

What do you think of the trends coming this Fall/Winter? Let me know in the comments 😀

Distressed Band T-shirts!

One of the fashion trends this Spring and Summer is the distressed band t-shirts! Shops such as Primark, Topshop and River Island have been killing it with the band t-shirts this year. Although, I find they are quite pricey for something you can simply do yourself, especially if you have a lot of band t-shirts!

Untitled collage.jpg

So for today’s post I decided to show you how to distress your own t-shirt!

Trend Spotting: Summer Sliders!

Lets be honest, sliders are ugly, but it is the kind of ugly that has made them popular and wanted by many fashion lovers!

Sliders were generally a plain strapped shoe, they were designed for comfort and not for style. Designers and celebrities such as Rihanna have taken the boring slider and given it a complete do over!

Now when you google sliders you will see many different styles, furry, jeweled and even metallic. These new styles have made the slider popular among fashion lovers as it allows them to be stylish but comfortable at the same time!!

Above you can see celebrities Khloe Kardashian, the Olsen twins and Rihanna sporting their sliders! Khloe is wearing simple black furry slider, the Olsen twins are rocking the original Berkenstock sliders and Rihanna its showcasing her Fenty Bow Sliders.

It’s a Nice Day for a White Wedding!

Last week I attended a wedding for the first time in almost 10 years! I love an excuse to buy an expensive dress and doll myself up to the nines, so you can imagine my excitement coming up to this wedding!

I had an idea in my head of what I wanted to wear, I searched high and low for the right dress! I ended up ordering 4 dresses from Littlewoods Ireland, and I fell in love with this gorgeous Myleene Klass dress!

This dress ticked all my boxes and more, when I seen the back detail I was sold!

For The Love Of Lace!

This outfit has been one of my favourites for the past few weeks. I bought the jacket in Penny’s/Primark a few months ago and it is now one of my most worn pieces!

The top is a laced smock from River Island, which I picked up during their sale! I love that I can dress it up for a more formal look or dress it down for a causal day out.

For this post I styled it for a casual lunch date with my close friend!

Wardrobe Wish List

Just when I think I have all the clothes I need, I find something else I want to add to my wardrobe!!

I am currently trying to build a collection of statement and essential items, similar to a capsule wardrobe. My main goal at the moment is to find shoes and jackets!

Mules

 

( V by Very / Lost Ink )

I’m not a huge fan of sandals, so mules are the next best thing for summer! There are so many choices this season, and I just can’t seem to choose one pair! I am torn between these pink embroidered mules from V by very and these simple black textured mules from Lost Ink!

Which would you choose?

Mom Jeans

TS26A73KMDT_Zoom_M_1

Topshop )

I’ve been living in skinny jeans for a while, and I just feel it’s time for a change! I was considering the boyfriend style jean, but because of my body shape they didn’t suit me at all! Mom jeans would definitely be a better fit! They would also be a better option for the summer!

Rain Coat

3046028620_1_1_1

( Zara )

When I was in Zara a little while back, I spotted this rain coat and straight away it reminded me of a coat I had as a kid, which in fact I hated, but clearly my taste has changed. I love the texture of the material! Funny enough I live in a country where it is raining all the time, and I don’t even own a proper rain coat!

Tulle Dress/Top

5643034800_2_1_1

( Zara )

I’ve been loving the new tulle tops and dresses, they are perfect for layering in the summer! I don’t feel comfortable wearing crop tops, but if I was wearing this over it I would feel a bit more comfortable! I like the embroidery on this top, but I would prefer a plain one, which I could add to.

Leather Ankle Boots

TS42K04KBLK_Zoom_M_1

( Topshop )

I know we are going into Spring, but living in Ireland the weather is very unpredictable! I have plenty of boots, but they all have heels. What I need is a plain pair of leather boots that are low heeled and will go with pretty much everything! I wanted these boots from Topshop but they are currently sold out, so I need to find something similar!

This is all I have on my wish list so far, but I’m sure I will have more very soon!

What is on your wardrobe wish list??

Trend Spotting: Embroidered Jeans

 (recent post from my old blog)

FotorCreated
In the sixties jeans underwent a make-over by university and college students, when they began adding patches and embroidery work to their denim.
This style was seen a few times since the 60s but this year they have come back with a bang!
High street brands such as Topshop and Zara have many styles of embroidered jeans in there Spring/Summer 2017 collections, ranging in colour, size and design!
Not only have they different styles of embroidery, they also used the technique on different style of jeans, from skinny to mom jeans!
Although this style of jean wouldn’t be considered capsule wardrobe material, they would make for a cute Spring/Summer staple!

Sailor Saturday!

(Recent Post from my old blog)

IMG_8408

I recently purchased this gorgeous leather jacket from Zara, I’ve had my eye on it since they released their Spring/Summer 17 collection!

I always wear black, but recently I felt I needed to add some colour variety to my coats/jackets, so a white leather jacket is definitely a change!

I decided to go down the monochrome path and paired the jacket with this black and white striped top, black jeans and plain black boots!
