So I have been out of action for the past few weeks for two reasons – I was busy settling back into college and more importantly I was busy coming up with new ideas and daily posts for the blog. One of my ideas is that every Thursday I will post a complete look for €100 or under! I think that Thursday is a great day for a two reasons – it’s payday and it’s the eve of the weekend! What better excuse to spend a small amount on a fabulous outfit that will take you through the weekend and many more to come?!

Today’s Stylish Steal features a TOPSHOP blue squirrel print dress – €24 (on sale), a black leather jacket – €39.95, tights – €5.95 and boots – €29.95 – all from H&M. I am in love with the print of the dress and I think that all the pieces are versatile and totally wearable for all sorts of occasions – for under €100 this outfit is definitely a stylish steal and makes for a very thrifty Thursday!

The dress can be dressed up or down, worn with bear legs or tights and can be made look more smart by pairing it with a blazer and heels. I like the idea of toughening it up with the leather jacket and boots as it’s a little more edgy and a perfect casual look. What do you think of my first Stylish Steal?

So it’s that time of year again – Autumn! And that can only mean one thing – it’s time to go back to collage and with that comes the need for a few new pieces to update your Autumn/Winter wardrobe. I have compiled a capsule collection of key pieces which I think are super stylish , comfortable and easy to throw on for collage. All of the pieces can also be easily mixed and matched with existing pieces you may have in your wardrobe and they are also really affordable. 

THE JEAN (Clockwise) – ASOS printed leggings, ZARA denim jeggings, ZARA boyfriend jeans, THE    KOOPLES khaki jeans.





THE TOP (Clockwise) – ASOS knitted tshirt, ASOS tshirt, THE KOOPLES zip detail top, ZARA studded     shirt (slightly obsessed with this!)


ImageTHE JUMPER (Clockwise) – THE KOOPLES grey jumper, TOPSHOP simple black top, TOPSHOP printed jumper (love the splash of colour), ZARA studded and lace jumper.



THE JACKET (Clockwise) – ZARA leather jacket, RIVER ISLAND leather detail military style jacket, ZARA fur leather jacket, ASOS denim bomber jacket.

Leather Lovin’

8 Aug


Today I am wearing a shirt from H&M Trend, a leather skirt from River Island, studded flats from Aldo and necklaces from River Island and Ted Baker. My obsession for all things leather has been going on for quite a while as I find that the various leather pieces I own are so versatile and can be worn day to night. For this reason I have been spending the past few days shopping online for some more key leather pieces for Autumn/Winter to add to my collection of leather trousers, shorts, hotpants and a skirt – you can never have too much! Here are my picks of some quirky yet versatile and wearable pieces from Zara and Asos. I hope you will be inspired!!
