OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Off to town for a day’s shopping! Read the full outfit breakdown over at anez.me!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

My January fitness blitz has paid off and I am back in my skinny jeans! I don’t know why people knock the January fad-diet-trend; while it mostly isn’t sustainable in the long-term, it does help to melt off those stubborn Christmas pounds! Here’s what I’m wearing now I can embrace my full wardrobe once more:

ootd1 Scarf: Hermes
T-Shirt: Primark
Jumper: Band of Outsiders
Bag: Balenciaga
Jeans: Paige
Boots: UGG

Yes, those are indeed the new navy Uggs that I got for Christmas. I’m so happy with them! It’s so nice to be able to wear an all-blue outfit and not have to worry about pairing up black or grey accessories to off-set my black or grey boots. (I could, of course, just not wear Uggs, but that sounds painful…)

I’m also loving this scarf, which I’ve had for years. Funny horror story: I was severely overheated today in the shopping center while I was wearing this, and so took my scarf off and tied it to my bag. The damn thing FELL OFF while I popped out of Tesco to, um, dispose of my empty ice cream cup (I’m back in the jeans so I’m allowed ice cream, okay?). I didn’t even realise it was gone until some incredibly kind soul hurried after me with it to tell me I’d dropped it! I thanked her profusely, but I’m not sure any amount of thanks can be sufficient to someone returning an Hermes scarf that’s out of season. I don’t know who you are, kind stranger, but thank you so much, and I wish you all the luck in the world! You are a genuinely lovely person, and I hope you are having a wonderful week.

Have you ever lost a beloved item? Have you ever had one returned to you?  Have you ever been the kind soul returning someone’s lovely lost item? Drop me a line and let me know!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Visiting town in this one, and since I was spending the day in BTs, I thought I should try to look a little sharp!

 ootd3 Jacket: Vintage
Scarf: Hermes
Sweater: Tommy Hilfiger
Jeans: Dunnes
Boots: UGG
Bag: Balenciaga

I really wanted to wear my salmon Karen Millen jacket with this to match the colours in the scarf, but it was just too damn cold! I’m so over this winter chill– can it be Spring now, please?

I’m definitely not over this scarf, though; I’ve had it for quite some time, but I haven’t actually worn it properly before this. I love the colours– there’s a nice balance of colour and neutrals, and I really love that pop of mint. It goes perfectly with this bag, which I’ve had forever, but don’t wear nearly as often as I should!

What items are you rediscovering in your closet this winter? Are you praying for Spring to come early? Or is Christmas all you can think about? Drop me a line and let me know!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

I fixed my mirror! Incredibly poorly, and with a lot of double-sided tape, but it’s better than trying to furtively snap pics in the darkness of the elevator while the poor neighbours wait outside.

 ootd1 Jacket: Vintage
Sweater:
M&S
Scarf: Hermes
Boots: UGG
Jeans: Vintage
Bag: Balenciaga

Still wearing this scarf a lot– I love it so much! It just seems to go with absolutely everything. Still sticking with my blue theme in general, really, and wanted something comfy and warm to go shopping in. My hair is thankfully starting to get properly long again, for which I am very glad. It’s so close to the length I want it to be! Just an inch or two more.

These jeans basically belong to the sisterhood of the travelling pants. They came to me from my mother, who I believe got them from her niece, who might have got them from their mum? They’re really old and soft and broken-in, though, so I love them.

Do you have any beloved cast-offs? What accessories can you just not put down? Have you started wearing your Christmas jumpers yet? Drop me a line and let me know!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Another day, another sad elevator photo! I tried to repair my mirror, but I don’t seem to be particularly skilled with spray glue– instead of sticking the mirror to the frame, I ended up sticking my hair to the frame and the mirror to the carpet. Will try again with different glue another day! Until then, you get another elevator pic:

Scarf: Hermes
Shirt: Primark
Jumper: M&S
Bag: Baleciaga
Pants: Under Armor
Boots: UGG

Heading off to Dundrum in this one, as you can probably tell by the lack of thermals and shawls! Wearing all my blues here as I wanted to match a blue ring I just got back from resizing. You can’t see it, but I’m also wearing a watch with a blue dial, blue earrings, and a blue stone bracelet. This gorgeous electric shade is one of my favourites, and I love how slouchy and easy to wear this bag is. The sweater was a snip in the M&S sale, and the colour goes perfectly with this gorgeous Hermes scarf that my mother bought me for Christmas a few years ago.

Do you colour-match your accessories to your outfits? What colours are you loving right now? Are you a fan of colour-matching, or is it all just a bit too twee for you? Drop me a line and let me know!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Just realised I never got to post this OOTD, so here it is now!

ootd10 Sweater: M&S
Leggings: Under Armour
Boots: UGG
Scarf: Hermes
Bag: Balenciaga

You can tell this is an old one because this was from before my mirror broke, haha. I’m so in love with this scarf– it’s one I picked up in Atlanta when I was there in September, and it has the most gorgeous blue and grey colour scheme which inspired this whole outfit. Quite fond of this little sweater, too, which I bought in the Autumn sale at M&S. Around this time of year, you can’t possibly have enough jumpers, I reckon, and Marks and Sparks do some really lovely ones.

What colour combinations are you rocking these days? Are you a jumper addict like me? Have you picked up any good sale bargains recently? Drop me a line and let me know!
