Gorgeous in Five.

It’s about time I got myself in top gear and began thrashing out some fashionable thoughts. Here are some of my favourites I picked that you too can easily pull together in just five minutes.

  1. Here, I decided to start with the top half. Since my trip to Japan and South Korea several years ago, I have been besotted by the bow-tie collar. I almost threw out a ribbon I got as part of my birthday gift from John and Katie. I saved it just so I could add it to my crisp white blouses. Take this little Gucci number for example. may tickle your fancy. Here I paired the navy/red pussy bow tie with a clean white canvas.

2. Think SuperGran (for those of us ancient enough to remember) or Rupert the Bear. You can’t go wrong with a set of tartan pins.

3. Gals, you need that all-important bag for your trinkets. Stash your mobile, wallet, makeup and keys in what I chose as a top handle ‘Sicily’ by D&G. Unfortunately it’s sold out of Net-A-Porter but I chose it simply because I long for colour in my wardrobe particularly at this time of year.

4. Coming in at number 4 for a mere 50$, you can snatch yourself a pair of Adidas Cloudfoam Advantage sneakers. Aiming to mix old with new, clean bold colour and pattern these originals will tie the look together just nicely.

5. Hey who doesn’t love a baker cap? Top off your look with this fun piece of head decor from Manokhi. Lest not forget winter still lingers.

 

So there you have it, my five top pieces to look outstanding in this mid point of the month. I hope you can take a leaf from my lookbook.

Blouse and Green

Although I tend not to post too many of theses, but here is my latest collage on a lookalike. The look on the left is by Gucci featuring a swing below knee skirt, white pussy-bow blouse, transparent, wedged sandals and there all-too-recognisable chain bag. I’m feeling the love from the color green.

A short ‘n’ sweet fashion blog this week folks but I’m singing off as it’s our Bank Holiday weekend and I’m too to Brandon Point in West Kerry to spread my summer style: You should too.

A-Line + The Slipper

Powerful inspiration this week from the new February edition of Ireland’s very own February edition of Social and Personal . Established in 1934 for a damn reason… These fashion editors have the best ideas!
I put together a few of my picks  from the range of A-line skirts out there. Pair with a cute slipper or dare I say moccasin for a perfect silhouette.
A Line + The Slipper

 

Take some more inspiration from the wonderful new line from Mariella Burani. This is a beautiful rose pink A line pleat with a striped turtleneck. Stripes are the way to go this spring (see previous 2 blogs). I just think these slippers are one in a million. Do you think they come on sale yet?!

Pumpkin Spiced Style

Pumpkin Spiced Style

 

I just love Autumn. The season of transition, change, harvest, cosiness and certain element of hunkering-down. It’s time for hot chocolate with friends and carving pumpkins. It’s time for fall colors, chunky knit scarves and it’s even ok to order  pumpkin-spiced latte.

I have been slowly but surely introducing my knits, long(er) coats and wooly black tights. I’m secretly loving the fact I can wear my capes again but of course very grateful it is not bitter cold outside just yet!

Thanks to Primark, we can all look like Autumnal models as we strut our stuff down the ordinary street.
