OOTD: Casual Key Pieces

If you follow my Facebook Page you will know that I have recently returned to work. Therefore, my items of choice these days are comfy, basics styled with key pieces!

I styled an otherwise simple black tee & ripped jeans with an oversized scarf, gold hoop earrings and white cut-out boots to keep things looking on trend and cool.




Jeans- Miss Selfridge
Top- H&M 
Boots- Missguided
Scarf- Market Stall

Converse are a casual staple for me and I usually style them with an oversized jumper and leggings. As the Irish weather was nice (for a change!) I decided to pair my converse with a high waisted acid wash skirt and a tie dye effect tank top.

Day to Night Style

I love putting together pieces that are comfy enough to wear during the day but can also be dressed up to wear out at night too. In the age of social media, most of us girls feel that we can only wear something once, especially if it's been uploaded to facebook. I'm not sure where this mindset has stemmed from and although it might seem a bit extreme and ridiculous sometimes we like to keep up appearances online... It's times like these that I feel glad to be a bargain  hunter! 

I wanted to show you how I style basics, jeans and a bodysuit from Miss Selfridge, to take the look from casual to evening wear. 

Casual

A simple pair of canvas trainers is all you need to make this outfit look casual. I would also add a leather jacket if it's cold outside and a fringed bag from Primark/Penneys if I'm going shopping.

Going Out

To make this outfit more dressy I've added pointed heels, a straight line blazer and a pair of statement earrings.I would also style this with a clutch bag to house all my essentials when I'm out and about. Although this look has a very laid back vibe, it is still dressy enough to wear if you're going out for dinner or to a bar.

What are your day to night essentials?

Summer Lookbook- Miss Selfridge Video Edition

I previously posted the pictures of my Miss Selfridge Lookbook in a previous post and wanted to share the video with you all! This is the first one I've done and although I have a long way to go in terms of filming and editing, I am really proud of this.


I hope you enjoy it!

Woman Crush Wednesday #1 : Marion Cotillard

French actress Marion Cotillard's style is a mixture of feminine, understated, structured, demure and bold.
I think its important to find inspiration in the celeb and media filled world and adapt it to your own style preferences.
The following combination of monochrome with bursts of red and orange immediately caught my eye and below is a selection of items that I would personally wear to recreate the look.
