OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Dinner out with Mummy and Aunties with this, finally wearing something I bought before Christmas and never got a chance to wear until now! Pretty happy with how this looked in person, although it didn’t photograph very well and I was running out the door when I was taking the picture, so I didn’t really have time to try to take a better one! Two looks for the price of one here, mostly because it looks so different with and without the coat.

T-Shirt: Primark
Shirt: Primark
Trousers: River Island
Shoes: Chloe
Jacket: Louise Kennedy
Bag: Mulberry
Scarf: Hermes
Necklace: Primark

Super happy that I got to wear my little shirt at last! It’s been languishing in my closet for about six months now; it deserved an outing, I think!

Do you wear your clothes as soon as you get them, or do you wait until the perfect moment? What’s waiting in your closet now waiting to be worn? Do you prefer this outfit with or without jacket and accessories? Drop me a line and let me know!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Back with another OOTD, trying out some of my purchases from my recent Kildare Village Outlets splurge.

Jacket: Louise Kennedy (Louise Kennedy Outlet)
Scarf: Hermes (Brown Thomas)
Bag: Mulberry (Mulberry Outlets)
Sweater: Dunnes Stores
Necklace: Primark
Leggings: Primark
Boots: Uggs (Brown Thomas)

I’ve really been feeling the gold lately, so I was pretty happy with how this came out! I love these leggings, which I snapped up on sale in Primark before Christmas– €3! I’m a fiend for patterned leggings, so it was nice to grab a budget option since I usually have to go to McQ or Black Milk to get ones I like.

Do you have a new colour, pattern, or fabric you’re loving lately? Drop me a line and let me know!

KILDARE VILLAGE OUTLETS: SPENDING OVERLOAD

Someone take my credit card away from me. Cut it up, flush it, hide it under the bed, put it in your mammy’s bra– whatever you think will keep me from using it again for a while, will you? Because I’m just back from Kildare Village Shopping Outlet, and I’m pretty sure the damn thing is white-hot by this stage.

Kildare Village is an American-style outlet mall– if you’ve ever been to the glorious Woodbury Common in the States, you’ll know what I’m talking about, but unlike its American cousins, it doesn’t require you to get on a plane and then a bus for hours and hours. Instead, you can just hop on the M7 to get there, and if, like me, you live in the city, you can be there in under an hour. What you get for leaving the comforting borders of Dublin is lovely scenery and great shopping at hugely reduced prices. The last time I was there was a few years ago, and actually finding the place was a tiny bit of a nightmare, but now it’s incredibly simple: exit 13 off the M7, two roundabouts, and you literally cannot miss it.

You were already picturing this the minute I said “American-style outlet mall”, weren’t you?

While smaller than the ones in the States, it’s got a reasonably good selection of brands in a variety of categories, including homeware stuff like LeCruset and Villeroy and Bosch, sports brands like Nike and Reebok, and my favourite: great designers like Karen Millen, Louise Kennedy, All Saints, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and their newest addition, Mulberry.
