Pinafore Revived

My eldest daughter has started school (sob!) and wears the same pinafore that I wore when I was there 25 years ago. Seeing her in it gave me all kinds of nostalgia which I'm guessing is the reason I couldn't pass this little number recently.

Transition Shoes

Autumn/Winter has always been my favourite time of year for style. I'm all for layers upon layers, chunky knits huge scarfs, boots etc. But as much as I love it I don't think we're quite there yet, in ther morning I'm dressing of the middle of Winter and by lunch I'm sweating all my layers off. I'm not quite ready to commit to boots just yet so I'm finding Penneys Brogues and Loafers the perfect transition shoes this year.

I travelled to Portugal for the first time with my family at the end of September to celebrate my mothers big 50th birthday. We stayed in Portimao near the the small town of Alvor. It was such an amazing trip!

Myself and my better half spent the weekend in beautiful Amsterdam celebrating his big 30th Birthday.

When packing for city breaks I always pack lots of separates that I can mix and match into different outfits depending on whether its day or night, the weather, mood etc. There's nothing more annoying then trying on and loving something at home only to hate it when you get there and have no other options.

Basic B**ch

Shirt H&M | Jeans River Island | Coat Forever 21 | Shoes Penneys

Trying to get two children ready for school and myself ready for work in the mornings leaves little time to start fussing over what to wear.  Lately I've found myself wearing the same outfits on repeat for practicality. I'm all about the basics, plain shirts or T-shirts with a pair of fitted jeans for a clean fresh look.

Basics can easily be dressed up by adding statement jewellery and a pair of heels to take you from day to night.

My favourite shop for basics is H&M they have a great selection and are so affordable. They are also offering 20% of your first online order when you sign up to their new online store.

Living in Ireland you really have no idea what the weather is going to be like when you wake up in the morning. It could be snowing or the sun could be splitting the trees. Which of course leaves it hard to plan ahead with outfits. When shopping now I tend to look for pieces that can transition with seasons (sometimes we experience all four in one day!!!) When I spotted this dress in the H&M window I could see myself wearing it with over the knee boots, a faux fur gillet and a floppy hat. But I could also see my self wearing it with gladiators or strappy summer sandels. I had planned to wear it with the lather but of course the Irish weather had a different idea and we woke up to a disgusting day. So I settled for something in the middle and went with ankle boots. I finished it off with this jacket.

I love all the little details about this dress, the lace up chest, the tassels, the slit on each side but the best bit has to be the price! It cost €19.99!!!
