Lost in the forest

I adore Zoe Saldana's dress created by Carven and styled by Petra Flannery. Petra is stylist to the stars and has been responsible for getting many on the best dressed lists! Printed dresses and cut outs are big this season. So I'm not an A-list actor so I don't have an A-list bank account! To suit my budget I picked up this dress from Primark, £13. It has similar floral detail and cut out on the side. Wear with white converse or with brown boots for a day look and high sandals for night time.

Summer crochet to dance in

Trousers - H&M
Top - H&M
Necklace - TopShop £15
Shoes - Penny's (Limited Edition) - Old

I went through my wardrobe during the week and filled two bags full of clothes, bags and shoes that I haven't worn in ages. I dumped all my flared white trousers, I think I had them since I was 18, which is a long time ago :( I have been looking for a pair of skinny white jeans and came across these beige ankle length crochet trousers in H&M. I adore them. They are amazing on and the gold zip detail on the back is fab! So every pair of trousers needs a top to match, only an excuse to buy something new! The peach colour compliments the trousers well and my tan (from a bottle!)
I bought the necklace in Liverpool (it's not on their website hence no link). When I came home I realised all my jewellery I bought was triangular shaped and  most of it was black, white and gold! The gold heel on my shoes wow's any outfit but oh my word my feet pay the ultimate price! Super high, I'm always complaining I'm not tall enough (I'm 5"6) , I guess I have to suffer the price!




Tassel Mania!

Tassel dress - Primark (Limited Edition) , £15
Black crop top (under neath), Primark, £4
Polka dot and red dip dye runners, Penny's €8
Peach runners, Penny's, €6

The Limited Edition section in Primark/Penny's is amazing! There was dresses there that I would never have thought Primark could produce. It is such a pity Penny's in the south of Ireland doesn't get these items. I met a friend today for coffee and this is the perfect outfit to look relaxed but still look stylish. What I really love about this dress is that it is extremely easy to dress it up or down! Add sky high platforms with bare legs and a big clutch and your ready for road. I love the colouring of the tassels it compliments the grey really well and the aztec stud design is keeping it on trend. I teamed it with a leather jacket and my new polka dot runners I got from Penny's. They are so cute and so cheap. The have loads of different designs. They are a great addition to any day outfit.

Dashing Around!

 Today was food shopping day! I thought the tee was very appropriate!

Tee - £4
Jeans - £19
Necklace - £3
Jacket - £23
All from Primark

When I saw this tee in Primark the weekend I was standing alone laughing away to myself. When I brought it back to the hotel and showed Chris (my boyfriend) I was weak. I'm very easily amused! I can't wait to show my dad he has a mustash too!

The jeans were a must. I'd seen a pair identical to these in MANGO but these clearly a lot cheaper got the basket residence. The detailing on the front and back pockets are very western, will def be wearing these July 4th! I love the torn affect it adds such casualness to jeans and it can really dress down an outfit for a lazy day!

This jacket was my favourite purchase in Liverpool. It ticks army and aztec and has a hippy touch to it which I love for the summer! I was watching Forrest Gump, and you know the part in it where Jenny is a hippy? Every time I wear it I think of  that! It will be Perfect to add edge to all my girly summer dresses!
