OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Been a while since I did one of these! Apologies for slacking on the blogging front lately; my life has been a whirlwind of all sorts of things I’m looking forward to posting about soon. In the mean time, I’m going to share some outfits I’ve been wearing recently! Off to lunch for my aunt’s birthday in this one, so thought I should fancy it up a little!

ootd16 Sweater: M&S
T-Shirt: Oasis
Leggings: M&S
Sneakers: Prada
Bag: Hermes
Scarf: Hermes

I quite like this look, because it’s casual enough for lunch (and comfortable enough for long car rides), but the high-end accessories give it enough punch to just about qualify as fancy! I really wish I had more Birkins– they make such an excellent tote, and the 30 size is just perfect for me in terms of carrying around my everyday needs. If only they weren’t so expensive.. And hard to get hold of! I’ve been trying to get my hands on a navy one for about three years now, to no avail. Back on the list now, I think, so I shall cross my fingers and see what happens…

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Out for lunch with the family in this– wanted something simple and low-key since we were going to be driving for hours beforehand! All silver accessories here, and although the bag and sneakers were purchased many seasons apart, I really do love how well they go together.

Leggings: H&M
T-Shirt: Oasis
Bag: Prada
Sneakers: Prada

These leggings are really old and the silvery bits at the side are in constant danger of falling off, but I just can’t bring myself to part with them!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Looking for a relaxed, casual look here for a relaxed, casual day! Shopping in Dundrum with Mummy and my lovely auntie in this one. Trying out the new leggings I got in my most recent shopping trip, and I cannot express how much I love them. They were a great bargain, and I have a feeling they’ll go with lots of my tops and t-shirts!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Going for a Spring/Summer look here. I love this coat, and I definitely don’t wear it enough!

Under T-Shirt: Oasis

Leggings: Dunnes
Boots: Uggs
Bag: Mulberry

I’m super fond of the combination of these bargain black/gold leggings I picked up before Christmas and this coat, and I actually got a compliment on it today!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

I’m so in love with this sweater I’m wearing it again today! It’s warm, comfy and soft.

I’m also doing the scarf-tuck again today! Here’s a closeup:

This is one of my more recent scarf purchases, bought because I loved the pattern. I wasn’t sure I would wear it much because there’s soft gold and plum in it, which aren’t two colours I wear very often. However, I’ve found they’re surprisingly neutral, and I’m reaching for this scarf quite a lot!

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!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Trying out something else from my last Dundrum Haul: these white boots. They were a super bargain, and I’ve been looking forward to wearing them. I was hoping they’d be comfortable, and they are… Well. Comfortableish. My little feet are very used to super comfy things like Uggs, so they weren’t entirely delighted about being squeezed into these, but I wore them for a whole day without needing to change into my emergency slippers! Not sure how much I like this sweater, though; I feel it makes me look a little broad in the hips. Think I might need to find something else to wear with these boots for the future!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Trying another gold-and-black thing today. Visited my the awesome Northern Contingent of my family, which means long car rides and then lunch at the Golf Club, so casually chic but comfortable is the order of the day! Can’t seem to stop wearing this little Mulberry bag I picked up a few weeks ago: it fits just enough for my daily needs (phone, keys, little bit of makeup), but is light enough that I don’t feel tired after wearing it. It goes really well with this scarf, too, because the scarf has leopards and there’s a little tiger on the bag (as you can see in the last photo here). I like to think of this one as kitty-inspired.

OUTFIT OF THE DAY

From a few days ago, here’s a casual, comfy outfit for going to the movies and seeing Captain America! Rocking a simple black-and-white theme today with very low-key makeup, as most of the focus is taken by this gorgeous scarf. This is one of my newer scarf babies (from January, I think), and I hadn’t had a chance to wear it yet. It’s pretty bright and eye-catching, so I decided to keep the rest of the outfit simple in order to let it shine.
