Pep(lum) Talk

mesh dress trend 2017 fashion

Do you ever aimlessly stroll into Primark with absolutely no intentions of liking anything, and then leave with EVERYTHING? Yep, me too. I like to think that I hate Primark - I can't go even one metre near a sale rail and I don't have the attention span for messy shops, but there's something about that one section of Primark (don't act like you don't know which) that hooks me every single time. Last time I went in I left £50 lighter, with surprisingly a lot to show for it - this mesh dress included.
Frilled/peplem/flute sleeves are taking over right now and I don't think i've looked at an average-joe sleeve the same for a really long time (sorry, old sleeves)... They just add a little 'extra' to your day-to-day look and who doesn't want a bit of that?  
I also love an item that serves a multi-purpose. Wanna pop to a festival? Sure thang... Out for dranks? Got ya back gurrrrl... Just wanna spice things up at the office? You got it! This dress checks all the boxes and you've probably noticed already i'm a bit of a sucker for a simple t-shirt dress - it's a very 'me' style if there was to be a style to describe me (that sounds dead boring, but you also know that if I was an item of clothing it would be a fluffy shoe so it swings both ways here...)
This time, I paired it with the most Instagrammable shoes in my shoedrobe right now - these gorgeous embroidered platform heels from Ego. I've had these for a little while now but unfortunately haven't had a chance to wear them as must as i'd have hoped due to the old ankle injury, but these won't be leaving the 'feature' shelf anytime soon...

what to wear comfort fashion blog

Weekends are definitely for chillin', and it feels like a LONG time since i've had a minute. But that doesn't stop me dressing like all I do is relax... I never used to own a pair of jeans, never mind any form of clothing with the word 'sweat' or 'hood' in the description, but now I literally couldn't live without my chill-essentials. Maybe i'm just getting old (don't answer that...).
Since investing in this pair of 'Jamie' jeans from Topshop, i've been back and also got the 'Joni' jeans (my current faves) and they've become my ultimate daily go-to pants. I actually feel like i've been missing out on years of comfort - i'm like a changed woman.
The next new addition to my wardrobe was another item from work that has tempted me (that is yet another item from Sarah Ashcroft's range) - the 'Boss Babe' hoodie. I'm not gonna lie - every single piece is actually amazing and it's definitely my type on paper. Hardly a surprise i've purchased so many items already (and planning to invest in Spanx so I can buy even more). I'm officially sold on the whole hoodie hype. I can finally put my hands up and say - I GET IT. So much comfort in one piece of clothing...

how to style denim jacket

The gingham obsession continues with these incredible trousers that I spotted in Urban Outfitters last month. After visiting them THREE times in their Dublin store, I finally persuaded myself to buy them. I'm so bad at treating myself and it takes a lot of convincing to get me to buy myself something if it's not essential (tbh, even the essentials such as socks pains me). I like to spend my money on the finer things in life, such as McDonalds... 
I've been styling these up on an almost daily basis recently and my fave combo has to be with a slogan tee and denim jacket. After only a few weeks at my new job i've definitely picked up a couple of cheeky pieces including this amazing applique jacket. Until last month I hadn't ever owned a denim jacket (I know, a travesty) and now I own THREE. Addicted, much? 
The trainers are also back after the sprain - I even bought MORE. Who am I becoming?

Double Denim'in'

how to wear yellow 2017

I'm back... I know... I have a habit of making a disappearing act don't I? I officially pulled Sophie out of her photographer retirement and shot some brand new outfits for you guys!
After spraining my ankle on a terrible level two months ago, i'm sort of back up and (not) running and can finally hobble a bit in all of the amazing shoes waiting to be shown off in my closet. 
I snapped up these absolute baes about a month or so ago from Ego and i've been absolutely devastated that I couldn't wear them for such a long time - so typical! Yellow is taking over right now and while it can look a bit silly against blonde hair, there's no stopping us when it comes to accessorising (and by that, I mean SHOES!). Who doesn't love a new excuse to pick up a new pair?
I think these 'Florence' heels have actually taken over Instagram and who can be surprised? Look how pretty they are! I'll happily take them in every colour thank yaaaa. 
Not quite sure how to style up the super bold hue? Play it safe with denim overload to keep it casual.
