A Penny’s summer short suit..

As I said in a previous post I’m really loving the new pieces coming into penny’s for this S/S12. This matching blazer and shorts were my favourite, the colours, the cut and the pattern all contribute to a perfect summer outfit! I wore it with a polka dot tee to clash prints and popped on some coloured jewellery and socks to add a little fun!

A floaty floral dress..

I love this dress I recently picked up in Zara. The cut is beautiful, not to mention to floaty fabric & soft floral print. I decided to wear a soft jumper with flicks of colour to contrast with the print in the dress! Chunky heels, socks and a big rope necklace later I’m ready!

Keeping cosy with Red Radar..

This is a video I recently did with the lovely people in RTE Red Radar! It’s all about keeping warm and me being cosy! Check out their other cool videos too;)xWhat I wear

A dress for a besties birthday..

Tonight is one of besties birthday! I recently picked up this dress in Topshop and it’s time it got an outing! I’m not usually one for anything that is too body-con but this dress is an amazing fit. I love the cut-outs and it’s balanced by the long sleeves. I’m thinking black boots, ponytail and earrings I got at Christmas to finish it off! Happy birthday to the beautiful Elaine;) x

Happy Monday, happy colour!

What better way to start a Monday than with tonnes of colour? Here, I have mixed pastels and texture with a colour pop in the necklace and shoes. Enough colour to brighten up the dullest Monday’s.. Have a great day everyone! X

Texture & Print for the weekend..

Anything that gives a nod to Chanel I love, and this jacket from Topshop does just that! I’m also loving mixing texture and print at the minute so I added these shorts to the mix. A simple black T-shirt calmed the look down, and I added my gold necklace as a statement piece! Ready for the weekend!;)

Leather trim shorts & denim..

My denim shirt is a staple in my wardrobe. Worn open and lose, or buttoned up with some jewellery! The shorts are something I have wanted for ages but could never find! I added some fun print with my beloved leopard print wedges;)

Candy stripes & A cosy knit..

You will not find one item of pink clothing in my wardrobe but I took an exception for this cosy knit! It’s oversized and sweet and to keep in tone with the girly girl look I paired it with these shorts. Stripes are all over the high street in trousers and shorts this coming season and I loved that these cuties gave a nod to the 50′s!
Shorts are also getting much shorter this S/S12 so give them a little class with something that isn’t tight or low cut!
