Pin It Now!

Jeans - Topshop
Jumper, Collared Top - Penneys
Boots -Ebay
Belt - Quack and Dirk

This was my Sunday shopping spree outfit. 
I braved the gale force winds to take these outside, hence my blown away hair. I have nowhere in my apartment appropriate for pictures due to lack of space!  I have a feeling I'll need to make space if this weather continues.
So, today I went to the Dundrum centre with my friend Hana as she was looking for a dress for a wedding. The weather seems to have brought thousands to the Centre. I have never seen anywhere so packed in all my life. Luckily most people seemed to be there with their kids so the shops weren't too crowded.  There are so many shops with so many lovely things - I was mainly looking for some new make-up which I didn't really manage to get as we spent alot of time eating lunch, drinking coffee and catching up (which I much preferred)! 
I did get some new foundation and an eyelash curler though (following on from a beauty blogger's advice - Letzmakeup. But not a stitch of clothing.  I blame the weather not being in sync with what's in the shops.

Track of the day:  Le Tigre - Deceptacon
I recently read an article in Red about how if a woman is into fashion, beauty, baking, how she dresses, etc..she obviously doesn't have a brain so I felt empowered as a woman who likes all of the above and does have a brain to listen to some Le Tigre.

Falling Down

Pin It Now!

Coat - Topshop
Scarf - Ebay
Boots -Office
Jeans - New Look
Beret - H&M
Blouse - AWear

Back outside thank god. Pictures taken inside never look great so I'm really happy there was a break in the weather today. 
Boots are back.  At this stage we should probably still be in tights but wearing tiny ballet pumps and not heavy waterproof boots. But, I actually don't mind because I prefer winter clothes anyway.
I really love this scarf.  I've never owned a tartan scarf before but I saw this on Ebay and loved the colours.
The coat came with a faux fur white collar which I took off to replace with this scarf. You can't really see it but I'm wearing a white blouse underneath the coat and I've bright yellow nailpolish on.
Enjoy splashing in the puddles!

Track of the day:
I'm afraid my mood reflects the weather so it's Scarlett Johansson today singing a sad song.  Her voice is amazing.

Pin It Now!

Cardigan, Jeans - AWear
Top - Zara
Boots -Ebay
Scarf - South Africa

It's hurricane season out there today so I had to take these pictures inside which is the reason for the poor quality. So, sorry about that.
I love these grey jeans - they go with my mood! They're also nice because they're not black and they're not blue - both of which I have plenty of.
I'm not really one for big bright colours but I love bright yellow as you can see by this cardigan. I think people are afraid to wear yellow - I don't know why. I think it's lovely.
I also have a black coat with me and my tan beret.

Track of the day:
I really needed cheering up today so I put on Pinback. Love this band.  I'd highly recommend you check them out. They're one of my favourite bands ever.

Wonder Years

Pin It Now!

Coat - H&M
Shorts - Pull and Bear
Shoes -Penneys
Shirt - Topshop

This was my look for yesterday for shopping with himself.  He did quite well out of H&M and got some great shoes in TK Maxx.
The day began with me being very cold in just the coat and no jumper but by the middle of the day I was sweating.  Ireland I love you but sort out your weather! 
I really like the colours in this shirt although it's going to have to be put away for summer as it's really warm.
I like this coat but you can see the sleeves are too long for me - I have short arms I think. In future I'll roll up the sleeves a bit.

Track of the day:
Real Estate are my new favourite band so this is my track of the day. They are playing Primavera this year and I'm very excited about seeing them while sitting in the Spanish sunshine drinking a beer. This song sounds alot like The Lemonheads I think.

Jacket - Pull and Bear
Blouse - Arnotts
Jeans -Topshop
Boots - Mango

I was at the launch of the new Jean Paul Gaultier designs for Diet Coke at Harvey Nichols last night with my friend Denise (one of my inspirations for starting this blog and also the other lady in the pics).
It was a great night.
What a gorgeous venue, funky bar, brilliant DJ, free nail bars, cool models, yummy Bellini's and of course as much Diet Coke as you could guzzle. I couldn't get over how lovely everyone was - so friendly and chatty. Met a few fellow bloggers too which was great.
Thanks to Fiona & Sarah from for the invite.
And this was my outfit..

Track of the day:
As I said, the DJ at the launch was brilliant and she played Django Django so that is my track of the day:

Jean Paul Gaultier

Pin It Now!

Coat - H&M
Dress - Topshop
Boots -Mango
Scarf - New Look

This outfit is from yesterday.
I haven't worn this dress in a long time.  I got my needle-handy mom to take it up for me and now it feels like I have a new dress. I've forgotten how nice it is so am delighted to have found it in the wardrobe.
I am very excited as I've been invited to the Press Launch of Jean Paul Gaultier for Diet Coke in Harvey Nichols.  Have my outfit picked out and all and will blog about it tomorrow!

 Track of the day:
Really enjoying Feist at the moment and this is my favourite song off the album.

All I need

Pin It Now!

Coat - Ebay
Jeans - New Look
Boots -Rocket Dog
Snood, Hat - H&M
Top - Zara

I'm just back from a brilliant ten days surf trip in Kerry with some really great friends and family.  I had to pack for all kinds of weather - rain, wind, hail and sunshine - and we had all of it. I'd like to rename Kerry "wait five minutes" - if it's raining, wait five minutes and it will stop and the sun will come out.  
So, again, lots and lots of layering.  I realised a long time ago wearing a scarf immediately warms me up. 
These pics were taken by my other half on a gorgeous beach while the sun was setting. 

Track of the day:
We were doing alot of driving around looking at beautiful cliffs rolling down to the sea. Seagulls basking in the sunshine. Wild Kerry sheep on the mountains. 
The perfect setting for some Air.

Big jet plane

Pin It Now!

Dress - New Look
Collar - Urban Outfitters
Tights, Brogues -Penneys

I can't get enough of this dress!  It's such a nice shape and really comfortable and you can put it with almost anything. I also like the length of the sleeves -it hides alot!
It's black and I know it's Spring so I put it with these orange tights from Penneys to give it a bit of colour. 
The collar is separate and once you get it to sit right it's quite nice.  It's quite delicate so you have to keep fixing it which is a bit painful. 

Track of the day:
Today I'm mostly listening to Angus & Julia Stone (brother and sister from Australia I think). I will be listening to it alot over the coming summer.

Fix you up

Pin It Now!

Coat, Scarf - Ebay
Jeans, Jumper - Topshop
Jacket -Zara
Boots - Office

It's cold out there (but sunny!).  Wow, what a difference a few days make.  Last week we had temperatures of 22 degrees and I was wearing a blazer and shoes without socks! This week it's back to winter clothes (which I don't mind at all as I love winter clothes).
I have never owned a tartan scarf but I like this red against the beige. I always wear quite muted colours so a splash of tartan colour can't hurt!

My other big love is music (my first love actually - besides my other half). My very good friend Ruth, who runs fantastic workshops in all sorts of lovely things at  made a suggestion to me a few months ago that I should also put songs I like on my blog.  So, thanks to you Ruth, I'm going to do that!
Track of the day:
I'm currently listening to this track from Tegan & Sara (hence the title of today's blog).

I love stripes

Pin It Now!

Top - Zara 
Jeans - AWear
Shoes - Topshop 

I really love stripes and wish there were more stripe tops out there.  So, this one gets worn quite alot. I like these dark jeans and think they'd work well with lots of different types of shoes from converse to these pumps to high heels to a wedge.
There were lots of little flies flying around me today - a sure sign of spring!
