So I know I promised a few OOTDs while I was on my week’s holidays but well I just decided to enjoy it since it was just one week. But I am back with an OOTD and hmm did any of you want me to do a review of any of the items from my 5 faves of the week post?
As you all know I have been working since Feb (read all about it here) and I am loving it. I sometimes just get stuck in a rut and don’t come up with any nice outfits for work but today I was really happy with what I put on. It’s not something amazing but I like it anyways.
I bought the One Teaspoon gold Iggy’s in their sale and it is just $5 AUD which is amazing! and to ship to Ireland it’s $30 but it’s fine. Now they’re not as gold as on the site as you can tell from the photos and jeepers when they say stiff on the description they really mean stiff! I have them now for 2 weeks and today I finally wore them. I had to run some errands and jeepers my legs were tired after walking in them. So they’re good to get a work out in!
However I think they look so chic with all black and have them as the statement. Hope I made sense. I wanted to wear them with my Toga Pulla Blue Suede boots but they’re not short enough and they’re not good when turned up…on me anyways. I went with my trusty cut out Topshop shoes.
I got this stunning top in Zara yesterday with another stunning piece which I’ll show you in another ootd and I’m so glad I got it because it’s amazing and it was just €13 in the sale!
I am wearing my O’Donnell Boutique jacket with the cutouts and I think that jacket is the best thing ever invented! It’s so soft and I live in it basically.
On my face I have on Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Desert Beige and I have on my new Chanel lipstick in Rouge Noir which is stunning!
Hope you like this outfit and do let me know what you think.
The Gardens at Glenstal Abbey
Last Thursday it was a gorgeous, cloudy, day. It was warm so that is why I’m calling it gorgeous.. I finally didn’t have to wear warm coats and a scarf woohoo. We went to Glenstal Abbey and it’s gorgeous there. If you’re ever in Ireland and you want to visit a peaceful place then this is it. It’s a boarding school for boys but it’s also a place where you can go and walk around the gardens also there’s a shop at the reception and you can get gorgeous accessories, soaps, cutlery etc there and my bf got me a Belleek ring there which I love!
We walked for a bit, we first went to the walled gardens and of course there was a good opportunity to take outfit photos. It would be rude not to…for you guys I mean :p
I went with a crisp white suit kind of look yet keeping it casual with my gorgeous tank top from Silver Factory and River Island plimsolls. The trousers are from Mango (I styled it in a previous post here) and the jacket is from H&M which you can’t get unfortunately but O’Donnell Boutique have a similar one here.
I love this look and I am loving the minimal/monochrome trend as you probably have realized from my latest posts. I just left my accessories at a minimum and just wore my trusty Michael Kors watch and my new ring.
I left my make up, again, at a minimum and I was wearing my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Desert Beige, MAC Kinda Sexy Lipstick and my Chanel mascara.
I will leave you with some photos I took at Glenstal Abbey. My holiday week is almost over (sad face) but I enjoyed the rest nonetheless. Hope you’re week is going good. Let me know what you think as always.
Brian finding out that there are sheep
I love trees
Look at how cute they look!
I’m loving these two trends and I finally found the perfect off white trousers so I can start completing this outfit for myself. I just kept it simple and also I made it very menswear inspired but with a sensual/mysterious touch.
I am in love with white…white trousers, white tops, shoes with white soles…. I guess I have Tumblr to blame for that. I was inspired to come up with this outfit. It’s a 90’s meets Gothic angel type thing that I concocted. If that makes sense.
I fell in love with the white trousers when I tried them on in Mango and I am so glad I got them (like I always am when I get things) because they’re not as see through as many I’ve tried on (H&M, ZARA etc) They’re €40 and are well worth it. The material is thicker than others and you can feel the quality of it. I guess it’s more of an off white but it’s perfect with white. You can get similar here
The top I got in River Island for €13 (you can get similar here) which is a lot but it’s still good to have and looks great with anything high waisted. The shoes are also from River Island which you can get here
For jewellery I went with my trusty watch by Michael Kors, my Zara bracelets and my gorgeous Alex and Ani birthstone bracelet.
For my make up I’m wearing MAC Film Noir Lipstick
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Desert Beige
YSL shocking liquid liner
Let me know what you think of the outfit. Would you wear it or something like it? Oh! and don’t forget! you can get 20% off Motel Rocks (motel rocks items only) with code elizabethsbeauty There are great new items in there and they stock Quay Australia sunglasses! I’m in love with them especially their kitty sunglasses!
I was contacted by Mod Cloth to style one of their gorgeous dresses and the dress that I had to style is gorgeous. I only heard of Mod Cloth once before and as soon as I went on the website I was intrigued by it and found little gems there from brands/designers I hadn’t heard of. I fell in love with Olivia Burton watches and I’m loving BB Dakota items. I had never heard of them before either. So glad I went on their website and trust me you’ll find unique pieces there it’s worth a look!
But anyways…back to the dress! The dress screams SS14 as well as fun, feminine and flirty. It is something that you could wear to a lunch date or while going shopping. It just makes everything bright and it makes me happy looking at it, as cheesy as it sounds. They also have more gorgeous dresses in their store so do check them out here
I love the turquoise and blue floral print on this BB Dakota dress. It’s very feminine and that is why I wanted to keep it that way when looking for shoes on their site. However, as I do love adding a little uniqueness to the outfit I thought that these holographic heels would suit them perfectly. I love that they will also be comfortable to walk around in if you were to go shopping with your girlfriends all day.
I decided to go with the turquoise bag because I thought it was cute and would add another little uniqueness to it. However, once again, to make it me I decided to pair it with a leather jacket and I picked a white one which would definitely still keep it Spring/Summer and bright.
For jewellery I kept it simple with just a watch, bracelet and necklace. Of course if it is a gorgeous sunny day then you need to protect your peepers and these cat eye sunglasses (I’m still in love with cat eye frames!) are stunning. It will go well with the outfit and won’t take from it.
Hopefully you like the way I styled this dress and do check out their website, there are great things there which are also reasonably priced. Let me know what you think in the comment box below.
Hope you are all good and enjoying your week. I seem to be coming down with a cold unfortunately but I blame the weather…it’s been warm for a bit and now it’s cold again. Boo!
But anyways I wanted to bring a little sunshine with this outfit. The yellow in these two pieces is lush. I am in love with the trousers and shirt. You probably have seen this shirt as well as the trousers on my Instagram but I couldn’t not feature them on my blog.
The pieces are from O’Donnell Boutique and you can get these pieces online or in store if you’re around 11 Catherine Street in Limerick.
I pair these two pieces with my gorgeous Lily jacket from O’Donnell Boutique which you have seen in a previous post which you can see here. If you get this jacket you will love it and not take it off like I haven’t until yesterday. Had to put it in the washing basket as it needs to be cleaned. It is sooo soft though! The trousers are gorgeous and so comfortable. They are a perfect length as well, so if you are 162.5cm tall they will be your perfect pair of trousers. However, I am not dissing ye lucky tall chics out there because they will be equally perfect for ye as when they’re ankle length they are super chic too. They’re gorgeous with ankle boots, heels and coltranes.
Shirt here, Trousers here (all from O’Donnell Boutique)
The shirt is amazing and it’s not static-y which is something I hate about shirts. I am in love that it has those accents with the black and it really is a great shirt to introduce colour into your wardrobe as well as the trousers.
Let me know what you think about this outfit and of course follow O’Donnell Boutique on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram and Youtube (They have something exciting coming up soon!)
So..I’m back with another outfit post. It’s just a casual one which I put together. I got a few pieces from O’Donnell Boutique which I am going to feature in an outfit post hopefully on Friday or next Sunday (they’re my days off) but I have put one of those pieces on today and I am so in love with it! It’s soft and it’s lined and I love how different it is with the cut out detail at the bottom. It will be up on their website next week and there are only size 10-16 left, it does come in cream as well, so if you like it do check it out!
I am wearing my H&M checkered print ankle trousers and t-shirt with my trusty Zara boots. I have been wearing them more at work now and my feet have gotten used to them so yay! They’re uber comfy now.
I only have on my Estee Lauder BB cream and Chanel rouge allure velvet in no 45. The rings are from H&M, ShopDixi and Regal Rose
What am I doing in the last photo you ask…I don’t know haha. Let me know what you think of this outfit.
