Mini Boohoo Haul

Back at it again with the regular posts, go me!  Made a cheeky boohoo purchase last week to up the mood, nothing like a bit of retail therapy! Hope you enjoy :*

It’s not very typical of me to add some colour to my wardrobe, but I thought this was the perfect piece to do it with.  It’s a beautiful lilac colour which is very toned down and goes with all the rest of the monotone things in my collection.  Perfect fit, and has a lovely thin fabric which hangs nicely on the body.  The zip at the back is very concealed adding to the simplicity of the piece.  It has a lovely texture as well which is very subtle.  I got this in size 12, lilac, and paid €10 for it!  Loooove this!

Fran Petite Cross Over Crepe Woven Skater Dress

I have soo many skater dresses but nothing in black so I feel like this was necessary!  I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the fabric because it was only €8, it’s very thick which is great.  I love the crossover detail which made this piece a bit different to other things I have, but of course the model had smaller boobies than me and not too sure if I like how much cleavage it shows.  It also means I can’t really wear a bra with this, which makes them seem a bit more out of control!  Definitely doesn’t make me feel too confident.  Another thing I wasn’t too pleased about was on the inside of the cross over fabric in the front has some extra unnecessary fabric which tends to slip out when I move, so I’ll have to try and iron this flat and see if that helps.  You can see this in the pictures as well.  I got this in a size 10, black.

Violet Moon Hair Clip

Not entirely sure why I got this, one of those impulse buys!  But it was only €4 so can’t really go wrong.  Got it in gold, which I’ve been wearing a lot of lately jewellery wise so thought it might be a nice addition to a look.  I also never wear clips in my hair so thought I’d try it out.  It’s nice, not obsessed with it but it’s different.  I wish the moon was orientated differently cause it always seems to be in the wrong place.  What can you do!

Cameron Marl Brush Cropped Hoody

Saving the best for last!  I’ve been looking for a plain black cropped hoody for soooo long but haven’t found one that was just plain before this so I had to get it!  I got it in size small, black, and cost me €16.  The fabric is so lovely, really thick and warm, which is probably why it always has to be washed at 30 degrees.  The cropped length is perfect for my body type, although I do find the hoody to be a bit tight on the neck and difficult to pull over your head.  Love this and so happy with the purchase!  Can’t stop wearing it 🙂

Hoped you liked this mini boohoo haul, a small order but can’t be breaking the bank these days. Y’all know how it is!  Also, let me know if you’d be interested in a quick life update to let you know what I’ve been up to!

Love and light,

Current Shoe Loves

Been loving these 3 pairs of shoes these past few weeks, all very different, but thought I’d share my latest obsessions with you today!  Hope you enjoy :*

Adidas Originals Superstar Shoes

Sooo classic!  Definitely a bit late to this trend but have loved them for years.  Pretty much been obsessed since Run DMC’s video for Walk this Way.  I mean we all know them from that, don’t we?  80’s hollaaah!  Anyway, I picked these up last Christmas in Office in Dublin for €90.  I wouldn’t usually spend so much on a pair of trainers but you can only really get the originals of these … or it just wouldn’t be the same.  They are so comfortable and go with every outfit.  Love the vibes they add to any look.  Got them in classic core white with black, the adidas logo at the back is in black with white, logo at the front is black with gold, and it has ‘superstar’ written on the sides in beautiful gold lettering.  The classic black stripes on the sides and the shell pattern on the front of the shoe are definitely what makes them so recognisable.  Love these so much and think they would be a great staple for anyone’s style!  However … living in the country in Ireland it is so hard to keep white trainers white!

White ‘Spice Girl’ Platforms

These are just so fun.  I picked them up a few weeks ago in Primark / Penneys in Limerick City for only €9, so worth it.  Been obsessed with platforms ever since the Spice Girls (namely Baby Spice) of course but think the trend is coming back recently as I’ve seen the style a lot on social media.  I love how simple these are, just plain white (again.. so hard to keep clean), and are quite high for a platform so may not be an everyday look for everyone, however I still wear them most days!  Surprisingly comfortable and easy to walk in, I love the extra height they give because I cannot wear heels to save my life.  They make my legs look longer and more toned than they actually are which is great.  Love wearing these with black leggings and a black hoody.  Keepin’ it monotonal y’know.

Blue Velvet & Black Platforms

These are so beautiful I cannot believe they were only €1 in Primark / Penneys in Limerick City.  Could not leave the shop without getting these, such a great price!  Love the blue velvet which is so different and adds an interesting to touch to any outfit.  They are much shorter than the white platforms which makes them more wearable.  I love the black and blue contrast as well which you don’t see that often.  I love wearing these with an all black outfit and a dark blue denim jacket.  Retrooo Viiibes!

Hope you liked this post and got a bit of an insight to my shoe style lately, maybe it’ll gave you some inspiration!  See you next week for another post,

Love and light,

The New Patent Shoes I have fallen in love with…

The majority of the shoes I own are Doc Martens…and there is a very specific reason why I always come back to this brand. Although they are an investment, being at a higher price point than a lot of other shoes, the quality beats all. A few years ago I was rooting through some of my mum’s old stuff and found these brown Doc Marten boots still in perfect condition. I fell in love.. and after some discussion they became mine for the foreseeable future. I have worn these shoes for the last 2 or so years every day. Day-to-day wear, festivals, nights out, they were perfect for everything! These shoes were about 30 years old and my mum wore them for a very long time before I even existed. If you take care of them, these shoes can last forever, and even passed down through generations!

So, having multiple boots in my collection I was on the search for something a bit more classy, plain… but can add a lot to your outfit. It took me a long time to decide but I found these babies. They are the Women’s Re-Invented 1461 Black Patent Leather Shoes.

Priced at €100, first and foremost they are so comfortable. The classic yellow thread running along the sole of the shoe adds the vintage feel and makes them instantly recognisable as Doc Martens. They have a 3-eyelet lace which makes them look more petite, something I love. The patent leather makes them super easy to clean and sometimes I think that I get a little bit paranoid about them being dirty. Just because they are so shiny and glossy it feels wrong! I’ve never felt like that about any other shoe…

Because they are so simple, they go with any outfit, of any colour, tights or no tights, whatever you feel in the mood for, they just work! I think me and these shoes are going to have a lovely relationship in the future. My babies, my loves, my shoesies.

Thanks for taking the time out of your day to read this,

Love and Light,

Namaste,
