OUTFIT OF THE DAY

I so wanted to start 2015 with an extra awesome OOTD, but considering that I’m still feeling the effect of Christmas eating, I also want to hide under a big blanket, size XXXL. I ended up compromising by wearing this:

ootd5 Scarf: Hermes
Jumper: Tommy Hilfiger
Bag: Hermes
Jeans: 7 for All Mankind
Shoes: Sketchers

Breaking in some new shoes here– they’re actually for a costume at an event later in the year, but I thought it might be wise to break them in somewhere else first. This was definitely a good idea, because by the time I got home, I wanted a foot masseuse under that giant blanket I mentioned. (That sounds dirtier than I intended it to be…)

I’m hoping they won’t hurt quite so much once they’re broken in, because I was perfectly fine for the first two hours, it was only by hour four that the ache really started. The reason for this is because they have a kind of hidden wedge heel, which is my absolute favourite thing– I might be complaining about them hurting, but I think we all know that I wouldn’t even consider wearing a “regular” heel for four or five hours walking around the mall. I’d be in pain by minute four, much less hour four, so these are a nice option when you want to add some height but still have some walking to do.

I’m working (albeit slowly) on shedding my Christmas pounds, so hopefully future OOTDs will be a little more exciting– especially once the good weather swings back around!

Have you put Christmas behind you, or are you feeling Christmas on your behind? Do you have beautiful clothes waiting until you feel better to wear them? Or were you good over the holidays and find yourself greeting January with gleeful and confident smugness? Drop me a line and let me know!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Winter is definitely here, and biting, so I’ve fallen back on the big guns: cashmere shawls and heavy jackets! I had so surrender my lighter leather jacket for this heavier, fleece-lined option… Which actually belongs to my Mum. Mum suffers from the cold even worse than I do (if you can imagine that), so for her, this is actually a spring jacket, not the winter coat it seems to me! Silver lining, though: I get to keep it until it warms enough that she can cast off her blanket-coat and jump into this, at which point I’ll move back to my usual (lighter) jacket. Everyone wins when mother and daughter end up the same clothes size! 😀

Shawl: Hermes

Boots: UGG

Probably not my best look, but as I was wandering the streets of Dublin in this, it kept me pleasantly warm, which was what was needed! I’m also giving my new birthday bag is inaugural outing. It’s a little stiffer than my older one, which will take some getting used to, but I think it will loosen up a little bit over time– and until then, I’m very happy with how it looks!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Trying that scarf-tucked-in lark again, this time in a more monochrome fashion. This time with more easily peelable layers, because I was a little overheated last time! I’m so in love with this cape. It was a super bargain that Mum spotted in the January sales for something like €10, and it looks exactly like what I’d wanted. The zippers on the sides can be undone to give you hand access when it’s cold, but I’m usually too lazy to bother, as you can see here!

ootd02 Cape: Dunnes
Shirt: Benetton 
Scarf: Hermes
T-Shirt: Oasis

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Off to town in this, so I needed something that was warm, comfortable, and cute! I’ve also discovered a handy tip: don’t want your scarf getting smeared with lipstick while it slaps you in the face and makes you look like a prat? Tuck it into the neck of your sweater! It looks like a really pretty blouse while you have the comfort of wearing a t-shirt, and you don’t have to worry about damaging your scarf. Bonus!
