Another fun snap from NYC last september. I love how this outfit looks really smart and even though it looks uber comfortable it has something a little sophisticated about it too while still being really fun and young. I’m taking a lot of those keywords into the outfit I’m making for my final semester project! I’ve already started but I’m thinking of documenting it perhaps?
I posted this on my youtube yesterday but forgot to share it with you guys! Hope you enjoy this super quick casual lookbook. Silly me forgot to add music! Happy weekend party people
Jacket - Nelly, Leather Pants – River Island
I love the look of the classic vintage Levis Sherpa jackets but I really fell head over heels for this slouchy modern take. Think less lumberjack and a bit more free. I bought this as my ‘splurge’ winter jacket/birthday present to myself this year for something a bit less depressing then black grey or camel, and that cyan denim certainly put a spring in my step today! Wish the fur was lined all along the inside too but the jacket is actually really warm without it surprisingly, so I’m a little less worried about how much wear it will get when it gets even more baltic in Belfast! I got it on one of my latest favourite sites, Nelly.com (think swedish Asos) and it’s from a label ’Estradueur’ I’ve been loving recently. We likey?
First one I just got super cheap HERE.
I’ve been browsing through some Maison Martin Margiela work recently and his aesthetic is really starting to grow on me (a endless list of covetable items, sigh). I love being busy but between blogging & university the last few years, time to pick up a magazine or browse through collections seems too seldom. The other two tops are from MMM and it has me craving some more unique sheer pieces (put the sheer button up shirts back on the rail, were ain’t talking ordinary here! ). I think sheer pieces are pretty good, you can layer them in winter & pair them with gorgeous ‘made-to-be-seen’ bras (I’ve be drooling over some of Myla Underwear’s range) on an evening out or in summer again. Sheer pieces can be so difficult to pick when trying to decide, you don’t want it so sheer that they end up being unwearable! I’d love to hear how you’ll be layering up your sheers!
Ok, I’m nostalgia ridden. I took this cute/disturbingly glam snap of two young girls at the Lincoln Centre at NYFW last september, and something about the summery vibes in this photo just cheered me right up (as I type I’m faced with acres of frosty country-side fields out of my window).
I took a ton of street style snaps on the trip and kind of forgot about them. I think I’ll post the rest over the next while to make me forget about how much I’m neither equipped for nor welcome the winter! I’m finding it increasingly difficult to resist the urge of piling on all my unflattering winter warmers that simply don’t cut it for outfit posts(Shopping will have to ensue, how awful )! I have a new haul coming soon though, hurray!

Mezzamies, I’m so excited to bring you a little project I’ve been working on over the weekend! Cathal & myself braved the cold on monday to film a short fun lookbook for River Island & their final Rihanna for R.I. collection. I got to pick some pieces from the stock in their Belfast Victoria Square store & lots of the pieces just screamed party season. I put together three outfits, and even added some Taggle tags (the little pink boxes below the prices) so you can shop each item in seconds! Filming a haul & finishing up another lookbook this week, so keep those eyes a-peelin’.
Top – Primark/Penneys, Riding Pant – American Apparel, Bag – Romwe, Shoes – J.C. ‘Coltrane’
Had some more awesome meetings with Taggled today, had to throw on my super cosy high waisted riding pants, one of the only bottoms I have that are high waisted enough to tuck this teddy crop top into!
Jacket – Nelly.com
I have been eyeing up this jacket for weeks! I Happened to go on Nelly last night to see that they have 20% off jackets until 12pm today, so of course I had to get it! Normal denim jackets, the vintage over-sized ones don’t suit me, so I thought this was a cool alternative. Perfect day-jacket with some colour to brighten up my wardrobe a bit!
I get tons of questions about the type of equipment I use to shoot my outfit’s & my videos with. What better way to tell you than in a video! ♥
