Scalloped Shorts & Vintage Blouses

25 May 2011

Finally finished College for the Summer. I wore this for a meal with my boyfriend yesterday. I bought the shorts nearly 2 months ago and had not worn them yet, happy I finally found an occasion to wear them.

So very tempted to buy some Jeffrey Campbell Lana shoes, they're discounted now on Nasty Gal too. Oh the temptation!
Lana or Lita? I'm torn.

Charity Shop Casuals

20 May 2011

Instead of using my day to study like any normal person, I chose to take a detour to my beloved charity shops. I had not popped into them in a while and felt like I was missing out on some bargains. I was right of course. A major charity shop binge ensued. And a Primark binge after that, obviously.

A lot of new clothing gained, I hope it makes up for not getting an extra day's cramming in for my exam on Saturday.

What do you wear when you go shopping?

Turban Head Band & Studded Brogues

13 May 2011

Very annoyed at blogger right now, deleted most of my comments from a previous post & deleted this one entirely!

I'd been wanting a Turban Headband for the longest time but never actually got the chance to order one online. My chance came at the River Island Student Shop Night where I got this headband with 20% discount. My Dad says it looks like a pair of knickers on my head, and I don't think my boyfriend will be a fan either, but I don't care I'm really liking it!

Big hello to all my new followers and readers, thank you for checking out my blog x

Easy way to Colour Block

10 May 2011

As you can tell from my past post I really am getting into embracing colour for the Summer. Personally I think only certain colours work well together when pairing seperate pieces of clothing for colour blocking, otherwise it's easy to look like a drop out from clown college.

I found this skirt at the back of my wardrobe yesterday, because of its bright colour panels it means I don't have to worry about finding seperates that work well together. Adding a piece like this to your wardrobe will definitely be a time saver for pulling off colour blocking.

Summer Colour Block

06 May 2011
049 colour blocking

I'm a big fan of colour blocking for Summer 2011. Not only is it great for a warm summer's day but it also brightens up the many dull days that Ireland seems to get during Summer.

I picked this skirt up in Bershka and immediately thought I would pair it with my royal blue shirt from New Look. For night time I'd probably pair this outfit with my lime green heels and a clutch bag, neither of which I could find for the photos.

My bird ring is actually bright yellow, not white!

Topshop buckle wedges I got in the Christmas Sale.

I'm now deperate for a pair of green chinos and a nude blazer to pair with them!

However I did recently pick up these denim leopard print shorts from Bershka which I am in love with.
