HOW TO BUILD A CAPSULE WARDROBE

I’ve decided I really don’t like January. I used not mind it, I was always ready to get back into work and figure out my plan for the year. But this year has been a few personal battles as well as beyond bleak weather. It’s just rubbish isn’t it? So I’m trying to put myself in a better mindset and getting back to plotting, and one such thing is planning my new season capsule wardrobe. It makes me very happy.…

MY TOP WARDROBE PICKS: JEANS

MY TOP WARDROBE PICKS: JEANS

Ladies, we’ve all been there. Laying upside down on the bed, jumping around for minutes on end, and grabbing a friend to help you get those super skinnies on! Jeans are just one of those things you have to get right. When it comes to style, material and pattern, it all counts, but getting all three of those that work for you can sometimes be a myth.  For week two of my Wardrobe Wednesday series, I’ve bought to you my…

HOW TO WEAR STRIPES WITH KAREN MILLEN PART ONE

Of all the trends I have styled I never know how to wear stripes in a way that suits my body. My body has changed so much over the last year with my fitness routine, it’s like starting all over again sometimes. But the stripes will not defeat me! I’ve teamed up with Karen Millen this week to show you how to wear stripes, my way.  I think a vertical stripe is the best way to start. They glide downwards…

WAYS TO WEAR OFF THE SHOULDER TOPS

WAYS TO WEAR OFF THE SHOULDER TOPS

Off the Shoulder tops are such a thing now, am I right? Oh yes they are. If you walk into any high street shop you will be hit with a plethora of shoulder-less tops that are either striped, gingham or floral. It took me a while to come around to the idea that I now had to have very toned shoulders to pull off the look but if you know anything about me and my fitness routine is that I…

MY TOP THREE HIGH STREET JEANS

Yeah I have a problem with jeans as you can see. So I thought I would elaborate and give you my top three high street jeans that I wear across all the images you see on my blog and instagram. Jeans are in my daily uniform; I should probably vary it up but you see I find I feel and dress like me when I am wearing any of the above pairs. I can honestly say I have repeat bought…

WEARING A DRESS OVER JEANS (IT’S OK)

WEARING A DRESS OVER JEANS (IT’S OK)

Have you got a dress you love that you feel you can only wear when you have your tan done and the sun is out? I have several, including this one from Penneys that I just adore. But since summer comes and goes, I wanted to find ways to wear it when Ireland is buried under cloud cover. So that’s where denim comes in. It’s absolutely a-ok to a dress over jeans. I did this when I was a teenager…

Masterclass with Penneys Denim

Masterclass with Penneys Denim

Penneys denim is a new favourite range of mine. Thanks to exceptional fabric and structure, affordable denim is having a moment. So I was inspired to have a little denim masterclass and show you how I style Penneys denim three ways over the next week or so. Mixing and matching is key, but it doesn’t have to be about casual wear either. I’m also have an affair with polka dots so not better way to start this miniature project. Nothing…

Logo T-Shirts

It is the season of the logo t-shirt, whether you love Minnie Mouse or Led Zeppelin. Personally, I love a little quote. And since my goal of the year is to be a total go-getter then I think that this Penneys Logo tee is up my street. When you have a tough day it’s easy to just give up and walk away. But that’s the worst thing you can do. If anything, after a tough day, I tell myself to…

How to style Metallics with Penneys

I have a new found love for metallics, and for this month’s post with Penneys, I have a gem of a metallic to style up. We typically go for a beige, structured style when it comes to trench coats but this season we can change it up a bit. Try softer fabrics so that there is some fluidity to the look. When the Spring breeze catches the cloth, it will billow softly…gosh I should have been a poet.  The key…

Spring Shirting

Spring Shirting

Spring is such a great time to re-evaluate everything. And I have been doing just that. I did a wardrobe declutter and decided to take a ruthless approach to what I kept or donated to the charity shop. It took a while but I have so much room now and I am left with the pieces I really wear all the time. Less is definitely more. I did find that I am keen on shirts and now that the weather…
