On my search for some new winter clobber I came across so many beautiful pairs of reasonably priced boots. I was hoping to be lucky enough to find one pair I love to see me through the winter but, in the end had to restrain myself from buying a whole fleet.
Boots have been high on my shoe agenda for a while now & since I am trying the whole ”less is more” approach to fashion these days, I was willing to invest a decent amount in order to get one good pair. I found that the selection on offer at the moment allowed me to choose a high quality pair without spending as much as I had planned so I ended up with a beautiful new pair of shoes and some dollaaa left over to afford wearing them outside the house… win win!
Can you guess which pair I chose from the selection above? Which are your favorite?

I wasn’t as excited as usual for culture night this year as, at this stage I have been to aahhhh LOT of the stuff I have wanted to make it to over the years and… it was also pissing rain. I was lucky to get this shoot in before it started pouring out of the heavens but, undeterred (ok, not deterred enough to bail!) I headed into town to see what was on offer.
First port of call was the Freemason’s building on Molesworth street which had really intrigued me as it is not normally open to the public, it was so ornate inside, really beautiful to see. After that we had a sneaky pit stop in Peruke and Periwig for a cocktail (just to get in out of the rain, of course) and then hit the sugar club where there was a culture night music event.
The night turned out really well in spite of the rain & it was amazing to see all of the people brave the weather for a dose of Dublin culture
I have begun to realise just how much clothes I have acquired from Depop when I consider that 3 items in this look are from there alone. It is an amazing way to buy and sell clothes (and all sorts of stuff on), if you have the app you can follow me here.
Brandy Melville tee via Depop. Adidas superstars via Depop. Leather biker jacket, Dublin market. Midi ring, Fashionology & Ebay. American Apparel hoodie via Depop. Jeans, thrifted (DIY distressed). Beanie, Ebay.
I had been lusting after a pair of Adidas superstars for a few weeks now so was delighted to snap up a brand new pair in my size on Depop. Like a lot of people, I have a thing for beaming footwear so they had to be the fully white pair in order to satisfy the images I had in my head… and the looks I had already planned around them! I was delighted when they arrived and together, I’m sure we will make many a happy outfit.
Camel coat, thrifted. Tee, backpack & leather look jeans, Zara. Black jacket (layered underneath) H&M. Sunglasses, Parfois.
Last week myself and 7 friends flew out to Berlin for a few days to soak up the city and go to Berlin fest… I was both delighted and surprised at the amount we got done aside from the festival itself; nights out, alternative walking tours, vintage shopping, cocktail bars, great restaurants and flea markets to name a few (although, we showed up too late to the flea & it was closed… wasn’t for lack of trying though!).
I had oh-so-great plans to do several shoots but we were so busy that the ended up being the last thing on my mind during the week. Once it came to the weekend I was sure that Id at least get some festival outfit shoots but we were hardly seeing daylight long enough to even grab ‘breakfast’ so it fell by the wayside again. Terrible blogger!
Kimono, & crop, thrifted. Shorts, Zara. Boots, Ebay. Hat & bag, Primark.
I had a necklace nearly identical to this dolphin one when I was in my early teens, seeing these pendant choker come back around is a funny reminder about how ‘fashion’ is simply a well-timed notion. Having said that, I couldn’t help but buy this on Ebay, a little touch that reminds me of my attempts towards styling myself back in the day
Topshop dress & Levi jacket, thrifted. Boots, ASOS. Backpack, Primark. Sunglasses, Bangkok market.
I’m loving long cardigans at the moment, they are the perfect transitional piece from warm summer days to wintry months. I got this particular one in a Dublin charity shop & can see myself getting a lot of wear out of it over the next few weeks or, until I have to give in make the step up to a full-on coat.
Despite this look being made up of high-quality pieces, it actually cost less than 50 EUR for the entire outfit (except the watch, of course!) because most of it was acquired second-hand… get out into those thrift stores!
Clutch, vintage. Pleather top, Folkster. Zara jeans, thrifted. Leopard belt, Primark. Fringed loafers, Melbourne kilo sale. Watch Micheal Kors.

1) Making the most of the warm evenings with outdoor jazz. 2) That day’s accessories. 3) Another packed lunch with a vegan emphasis. 4) Talking to interesting people around Dublin.
Well, the days are getting cooler and the nights are getting shorter, summer is officially coming to an end. In mourning of this change which feels too premature, I find myself clinging on to boho festival pieces while I feel I can still wear them without freezing my ass of.
I was only recently enlightened with this oh-so-simple way of wearing a scarf as a kimono & it is undoubtedly adding to the longing I have for more summer days… so many light flowy scarves to be worn, so little time
Ankle boots, ASOS. Scarf (as kimono), thrifted. High waisted jeans, Dr Denim. Fedora, Primark. Moon pendant, Depop. Stone necklace & crop top, DIY. Stone necklace, Bangkok market. Satchel, Dublin flea market.
I haven’t owned a pair of culottes since I was a child but there was something about the grid print on this Monki pair that I just found irresistible.These were actually my first Monki purchase but I am loving their ‘street style meets Scandi-chic’ pieces so Id say it wont be my last.
Simple clean lines and colors were the order of the day it seems on this occasion. I coupled the look with a simple chignon, a hairstyle I have never actually worn before but after seeing one on a girl earlier that day I felt inspired; having my hair pulled off my face felt perfect for the clean look I was going for.
Birkenstocks, Ebay. Dolphin hem crop, Lavish Alice. Clutch, DIY from a Primark handbag. Sunglasses, Dublin flea market.
A friend recently sent me a video depicting all of the different ways in which a scarf can be worn, I have sought out those type of videos before in an attempt to get more use out of my lighter scarves but I had never seen the very simple ‘fold it in half & knot the corners to make a kimono’ suggestion. Needless to say, I was up the stairs rummaging through my scarf collection within minutes.
This gives a new lease of life to huge array of scarves that most of us girls are harbouring in our bedrooms, I am always drawn to the lighter material scarves in pretty prints & colour but they get forgotten about in summer and are rarely chosen over their warmer counterparts in winter. I bought this particular one in Urban outfitters on a trip to New york nearly 7 years ago and, despite being quite regimented about regular closet clearouts, I have held on to it because I liked the print so much; now I have found a way to incorporate it more frequently into my wardrobe as well as any other scarves that I have
Flares, gotten at a clothes swap. Top, H&M. Long gem necklace, thrifted. Stones & coins necklace, Etsy. Moon pendant & fedora, Depop. Satchel, Dublin flea market.
