The Continuous Stripe Obsession

Follow

So if you follow me on IG you will be well aware of my current stripe obsession that seems as though it's not going to fade way any time soon. I know striped pieces are always in the shops year round, but they seem to be literally everywhere at the moment.. or else they're just more eye-catching than usual. New Look is also a shop that I don't normally go out of my way to visit, but I was so glad I did when I found this wrap-around kimono style top and also a grey/white stripe sleeveless jacket that I have yet to wear. I paired the kimono with a Topshop white cami underneath, Topshop blue Joni Jeans and Office boots.

'Mustard Chic' and Tips

Follow

Every so often, I get absolutely obsessed with certain tones and colours. For a while it was burgundy, then khaki green and now I can't seem to get enough mustard pieces in my wardrobe. It's a colour that I never thought I'd wear or could ever pull off when it started becoming 'trendy' again and although I do sometimes find it hard to match, I'd always say creams or greys work best to 'tone it down' a little. In my opinion, I'd avoid anything camel or warm toned as it can be a bit too warm, although colour-blocking with mustard and burgundy for example can look amazing too. I'm definitely going to give colour-blocking a go this Spring/Summer!

How To Wear 'Double Denim'

If you've been reading my blog or following my Instagram for some time, you'll know that I'm not usually the type to stick with one solid colour in my outfits. I really like to mix prints with plain pieces, statement jewellery with button up shirts and neutral shades with a pop of  colour in my lipstick or accessories. If anything, I definitely don't usually dress totally in the one colour. Recently, though, you will have seen in my Shades of Grey post that I've been trying out the 'all one colour' outfits and I actually received some really nice feedback.

I definitely would have never thought I'd be doing the double denim look as I cringe so much looking back at that famous photo of JT and Britney.. that's definitely not the look I was going for. (LOL)
Although it's a style that a lot of people would tend to stay away from, I think double denim is definitely wearable when you play around with different materials and shades as opposed to sticking with the exact same colour, top and bottom.. switch it up for sure! I paired my favourite pair of Topshop Ripped Joni Jeans in quite a dark denim that I purchased a year or two ago, with a very old lightweight cotton button up shirt (I'm pretty sure this was bought in France one year), rolled up the sleeves and tucked it in to my high waisted skinnies to make it look a bit more modern and 'chic'. 

For a more wearable look, I couldn't resist adding a bright pink lip shade (MAC 'Cherry' lip liner) to 'brighten up' the outfit along with a long necklace with an oval turquoise stone for an added bit of colour, yet still keeping things neutral with a pair of fringed beige booties - very similar pair on Missguided on sale for £14! I've linked these products and similar pieces below to re-create this look.

Shades of Grey: 2 Outfits

Being a person whose moods are most definitely determined by the weather, I literally feel so much more content on the days I can look out my bedroom window and still see daylight after 5pm.. although recently, Ireland seems to be stuck at grey, cold and rainy.. hence the grey outfit to coincide with the weather. All I can say is thank god February is almost over as I'm super excited for the spring/summer months this year and all they've got to bring, not to mention the SS16 styles that I'll be seeing at Belfast Fashion Week in March!

Style: A Step Into Spring

By the middle of January, the icy weather is definitely a bit played out. I used to be a person who loved winter and all that came with it, but this year I can't wait for the better weather and brighter days - any bloggers will understand the frustration of having at most a two hour  mid-day slot to take product/outfit photos due to the lack of sunlight.. there's no doubt that I'm ready to wave goodbye to winter. 

Over the past week or two, the high street stores have been bringing in new spring pieces and I'm over the moon to finally see the lighter colours come, and the chunky knits go! It's like I've been anticipating the spring all throughout November/December, so once Christmas had passed I felt that it was finally acceptable to wear my pastel pink MK bag that hadn't seen much light over the past few months. 

Of course I was absolutely freezing and had to add a white coat in the end.. which isn't the best option when you're going for a steak and red wine sauce, but at least it was an escape from the dark hues. My kimono is from last year's H&M spring line, pink cami is Topshop (available in light pastel pink), jeans are Topshop Joni's and my boots are quite a few years old, but from New Look!

90's Inspired Fashion

''You've got holes in your jeans, you know'' - I've heard it at least ten times coming from (a) the older generation, or (b) somebody with absolutely no clue about fashion. *eye rolls* 

Although you may not consider this the 'grungy' look, it is actually quite different for me as it isn't something I'd typically put together. I'm usually the one wearing light colours and pink lipstick. Recently, though, I've been really inspired by the whole 90's trend that I've been seeing everywhere lately. Not saying that I can see myself in a pair of Doc Marten's anytime soon (that would be a bit extreme for me), but with signature 90's fashion trends like berry lips and leather biker jackets coming back, I've been tempted to give it a go myself. 

I'm always fascinated to see fashion trends from decades ago come back into style. I found it hilarious when everybody began wearing the choker necklaces that we all ran about with years ago. I just hope 'mood rings' don't come back. *cringe*
 It shows that you really shouldn't dump clothes just because the 'trend' has been and gone, it will come back in style sooner or later!90s ripped jeans trend
