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
Dessert at The Breakfast Club ,Soho
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!
This was one of those shooting days when I couldn’t wait to get my blogging teeth into it! After slipping into the most badass of leathers from AllSaints I trotted off to the V&A museum in South Kensington for a bit of culture. I met up with my always superbly attired friend Toni (Fashitects) who kindly snapped up my outfit details in the Boroughs (always wanted to shoot here!) before some well needed Italian food. In love with my new in bag from AllSaints, moss green & pony hair leather, my two favourite things! It already has pride of place on my mantle, a center piece in itself in my all white London room.

Click the video above to watch my latest fashion cinema lookbook. So gutted I had to change the original song it was edited too, gotta love me always picking restricted music ;-( . Hope you love this one as much as the last, and don’t forget you can cop everything I wore with the links under the video if you watch it directly from my youtube page! T. x
New in booties which of course I just had to share with you! They’ve got this throwback 80′s/spicegirl vibe which I love. Zara are killing A/W at the moment and the stock on oxford street is too good to miss out on. This store is hoovering up all my shopping money, but I’ve learned they rarely get things back in stock so you just have to go for it sometimes! These weren’t exactly a steal at £89.99 but they’re real pony hair leather (no actual ponies were harmed in the making ladies and gentlemen) which somewhat justifies the price..right?
This is how I like my cheetah, well done!
How good are these photo’s Cathal took?! My boy is so on point with lighting these days.. I felt a bit inspired(and admittedly a little scared) when I added these lace-up front shorts to my basket but actually I think they’re super wearable when modernised with a very ‘clean’ look on the top. Did I mention how comfortable this outfit was?! Also My first time wearing a hat, I don’t know about it but I think it’s fun with my lighter hair and the bag of course… The shorts have that ‘I thrifted this in texas’ vibe and its nice to rock brown faux leather for a change! Definitely one of my California inspired looks. Kisses, T
