Printed Courage

I saw printed pants in the spring/summer collections and thought they were really fresh and fun. It's a lot easier to wear print in tops, accessories and even skirts but for some reason, not everyone is as quick to put on bold printed pants. Maybe because it's a little different but sometimes it worth working up a little courage. Pairing printed pants with a plain coloured top is a good way to ease yourself in.

Seaside Fun

Bit of a random one from a while back but I'm wearing a coat and hat that I love so thought I'd share it with you. I packed my heavy hats and scarfs away there at the weekend. Lets hope I didn't do it too soon as Irish weather can be unpredictable. I could be getting ahead of myself but I always feel like spring-summer is well and truly here when the clocks change so we get longer evenings. Next weekend it happens and I for one can't wait!

Garden Party

Happy St. Patricks Day everyone!

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I'm heading out to join the celebrations but just wanted to quickly share an outfit post with you. This outfit is very much centred around the pencil skirt. I just loved the detail of the floral print and the colours throughout. Its just reminded me of a garden party. I wore it to dinner recently. I went simple on top as so not to distract from the skirt. The shoes are oldies but goodies as they say, while the necklace you may remember from a previous post of my finds from the sales.

Ready or Not

This jacket was a great find in H&M. As soon as I saw it, it reminded me of a Helmut Lang tuxedo blazer I saw online, the bonus being the price tag on this one made me happy. I was delighted when I tried it on and found it had a great fit. Nothing worse than when your heart sinks a little when you try something on  and it doesn't fit great when it was gorgeous on the hanger. These shoes are my treat to myself this month. I've wanted pointy stilettos for a while but was yet see a pair that I wanted. As you probably guessed, it was love at first sight with these beauties. I chose this outfit to wear when I wasn't sure exactly what the evening ahead held. Whatever was in store for me, I wanted to be ready or not.

I Just Want to be Myself

Quick picture before I was off on a few errands. It's a little windy out. This was the only shot I could get without hair in my face but it's just to show you this t-shirt I love which I bought because what it said across the front appealed to me...'I just want to be myself'.

Chapped Lips?

This is just a quick post to share something I found good with anyone who suffers with chapped lips from time to time. Somethings when I suffering from chapped lips, I was forever switching between lip balm & a lippy of some sort trying to achieve both moisture and colour. When I happened to try Clinique's Superbalm Moisturising Gloss, I expected it to add moisture but I wasn't fully convinced it would achieve what I was looking for which was long lasting moisture and colour. I half heartily thought I'd give it a try. To my delight, I was really pleased with the result, it gave me long-lasting moisture. I've recommended it to one or two of my friends that suffer from chapped lips with the change of the weather so I just thought I'd share this great find with you. I just wish I knew about it sooner.
