Oh routine feels good! Even though Im super busy with uni I still want to try my best to upload somewhat consistent content for you guys. Cathal kindly helped me film this lookbook, so I got my ass into 4 new outfits to show you guys how I style black! This was surprisingly quick to film so if you guys like the format, I think I’ll be sticking to it until I get to film another fun fashion cinema again! T x
Shirt & Leather Trousers – Zara, Coat – Choies, Bag – Chanel
What a crazy three weeks its been! Muchos apologies for the slow posts over the last 3 weeks, it’s taken me a while to get into a routine since starting back for my final year of uni (totally exciting/scary!). Since I won’t be able to film more then one proper video a week I’m working on vlogging the process of making work for my final degree show. Basically a log of how I’m going to create all the textiles/clothes for my graduate fashion show, I haven’t seen anyone else do something like it so I’m excited to start! They’ll be going up here & on my youtube channel(link in the sidebar) every two weeks. Hopefully this is me back in regular posting routine though, I think I did pretty well while in London but annoyed how I slipped since I got back home!
Digging all black again since winter has pretty much hit Ireland with a vengeance. You guys know I’m not a shirt person, but I love how they look with leather and the buttons down on the top. This one from Zara was a bit pricey but I got rid of my old shirts and needed a good new staple! It’s SO soft. Hope you like this one, (new post coming tomorrow too)
Just one of those – whip on your boyfriends jacket for an effortless oversized look – kind of days..Another snapshot post today, hoping to get into an outfit posting routine this week now I’m back in Belfast! I picked this San Diego state university varsity jacket up a year or two ago as one of Cathal’s birthday presents in my local vintage shop, The Rusty Zip. They have a killer mens section (I also got my oversized leather jacket that you guys see a lot on here from there too)! It’s a nice touch to the super simple white neoprene turtleneck & leather mini. Adding that personalised element to minimal outfits makes it your own in the sea of minimalistic outfits saturating the bloggosphere Whats your favourite way to jazz up those simple outfits?
Ok, now I need to book a holiday! Just in, this gorgeous Beautiful Bottoms swim set with contrasting lime green playsuit and I can confirm I’m a little bit in love… The shape of the bikini is my favourite kind, slightly bandeau’d top with bottoms that don’t cut in to my sides. Adore the green and blue combination and the coolest thing about this swim set is that its reversible! Kind of a different post from me but I was dying to use the perfect lighting that comes in my London window

Where have the weeks gone, seriously! It feels like only last week I posted my London Postcard and now I’m saying my farewells! I had the most busy but best 4 weeks London, and it feels so normal now that I don’t really want to leave! Interning at Topshop was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself, and I now for the first time in a while can say this is DEFINITELY what I want to do. It turned out to be the loveliest place to work with the most welcoming warm hearted people (I will be back just to haunt you all with my irish accent and trip on all of your chair legs). If anybody else is considering travelling to get better opportunities I would say go for it. I learned so much and feel so pumped for final year.
Although your probably still wondering what the hell these pictures are about.. I finally met my gorgeous scottish blogger friend Tania (Tania Tells Blog) and thought I’d snap our outfits. We chatted for hours and like true chocoholics, shared a chocolate brownie! I’m enjoying posting these impromptu snapshot posts from my compact camera. Should I keep posting them for you?:-) Kisses-

ADORE the latest from Northern Irish designer J.W Anderson. I’m not usually a print person but when its executed so perfectly I gotta make an exception. I’d style one of the more statement pieces with a loose basic, or dress it up with something like the gorgeous green draped crop top in the last outfit. The prints and cuts are quite modern in their own way(the sun ray skirt with those irresistable paper like deep pleats) but I also think their look is quite timeless too!
Hmm I think all this time in London is definitely making me a bit more open minded in terms of trying new styles and imagining how I could style them to suit me. Only five days left in this crazy city!
