Buttery Brogues

Hello everyone!

You may be wondering from the heading why I have described my new pretties as 'buttery' but this is the most accurate description I could come up with to do them justice. They are a buttery brown colour, have a buttery soft texture yet structured and left me melting inside at first glance. I am in LURVE with them (If you couldn't tell already). Such was my love for them that I patiently waited 3 weeks for my order to come in. The beauty of Clarks shoes is that they cater for 1/2 sizes...a blessing for someone who is a 5 1/2 and who often misses out on the nicest shoes/boots/heels. Yup, first world problems of the highest order.

So here they are in all of their buttery beautiful glory. These are an investment piece and will be my summer go-to shoe fo shooo. The cutout detail makes them airy and bang on trend. The twine-like laces make the shoe, I think. They are also quite light even though they are leather brogues, another bonus. Ticking all of the shoe-y boxes. Hurrah to Clarkes!

I won't lie they were a pricey €85 but well worth it. I have worn them twice already and can happily confirm I was sans blisters after both occasions. And in all honesty even if they were a little on the ouchy side, good quality brogues are worth a little pain as they become an extension to your foot. Or so has been the case with me, but then I am a brogue enthusiast so I may be a little biased...

Have a good week!

Hello everyone!

Well its certainly been hotting up in little Éire these past few days, hallelujah! Whats that saying again? Its prime 'Exam Weather'? Yup as per usual when college exams/the leaving certificate (Final school exams...i.e. BIG DEAL) loom the weather turns miraculously amazing! And for once I am not studying (cramming) and taking exams like I've been doing over the last two decades basically. Feels weird. But enough rambling. The ankles made another appearance in this post hurrah! They were getting awfully fuzzy I won't lie, the beauty regime has cranked up a notch which isn't a bad thing.

So here is a Spring/Summer inspired outfit with my colour of the moment: MINT. Such a pretty understated colour. And the beauty of it is, is that this colour does actually suit every skin tone, always a plus for us pale Irish girleens. Such a clichéd statement but its true, I swears! I went for a more preppy simple look here as my styling preferences vary depending on my mood. I paired this with a vintage (my Moms circa 1993) box top, old reliable leopard print sunnies, some trusty high-waisted jeans and my beloved brogues. These are my shoes and suitable all year round, puuuuurfect.

Hope ye are all having a good weekend whatever ye're doing...and if its sunny for God's sake don't forget the SPF as unfortunately sunburn will never be in vogue.

Talk soon dudes,

Caped Crusader

Hello everyone!

Just a quick outfit post that I meant to post aaaaages ago. The weather was nice here in Ireland a few weeks back and I made the most of it by stripping off as much as possible i.e. losing my winter socks and those extra two layers of clothes I've been sporting since October! 

I'll be honest, this beautiful acrylic cape/kimono was purchased in the H&M Autumn/Winter sale 2012...and the images here are from the first time I actually wore it two years on. I know very bold, but being honest like most sometimes you just forget about AMAZING pieces you have picked up. So wearing this felt like BOOM new clothes, which is always good! 

A future post will feature my new glasses/sun glasses. I am super excited to get these as recently I have had to revert back to wearing glasses on a daily basis instead of contact lenses and I SERIOUSLY needed an upgrade from my 8 year old glasses - they seemed nice when I was SIXTEEN...not so much now! Lets just say my obsession with leopard/tortoise shell print has translated to the spectacle variation.

Anywho, hope ye are all having a great week and happy hump day!

Haul // Office ASOS Topshop Oasis

Hi Everyone! 

Hope you are all well and are enjoying a lovely May bank holiday weekend,

Sorry I have been MIA lately on my share of the posts but I have had a hectic few weeks. 

Last month I went to London went my sister and we were lucky enough to be apart of the audience for the filming of the Graham Norton Show, with guests Juliette Binoche, Ronnie Corbett & Ricky Gervais, I have to admit I only knew who Ricky Gervais was but it was a great night nonetheless. 
While I was in London we stayed just off Oxford Street so I was in my element and picked up a few pieces. 

Talk soon lovlies,
