Outfit Of The Day | A Chilled St Patrick's Day


Yesterday I had a lovely, relaxing bank holiday Monday. It was of course Paddy's Day, but instead of heading into the manic city centre, my Mam and I spent the day together and just took some time to have a chill day. It's really nice to be able to have an extra day in the weekend to take some time off and just relax. It also means that it's a short week too! Yay! :-)

In the morning, we headed out to the shops. We're going on holidays in May so we needed to get some summery clothes. We also needed to stock up on bikinis and flip flops/sandals. For some reason, they always seem to go out of stock really quickly. Especially the ones in Penneys because they're so cheap after all!

In the afternoon we brought our dog, Piper for a lovely stroll at Malahide Castle. It's gorgeous out there! The castle and the grounds are beautiful! Piper loves going for a walk there - she loves sniffing everything and meeting lots of other dogs. She gets so much attention whenever we bring her here for a walk. Everyone loves her, they love how fluffy she is! ;-) She kept rubbing her paws on the grass. She's never done that before. It was really funny to watch!

We met my sister, brother-in-law and my niece for dinner. It was Elsie's first St Patrick's Day and she wore a leprechaun babygro! It was so cuuute!! She loves watching the people around her and she was smiling at the waiter. I think it's so nice to see how babies just make people instantly smile. It's really sweet! :-)

I had fish and chips for my dinner. My favourite!! :-) It was a really nice meal. When we got home we tucked into the chocolate cupcakes that I made on Sunday. They were delicious! ;-)


I love this skirt, it's simple and girly. Not to mention the floral lace detail on it is just gorgeous! It's high waist so, it's great to wear with crop tops. I'm just wearing this grey and black top tucked into it. I think that's a nice look too. It's still very chilly so I haven't quite ditched the tights just yet. In fact, you don't really get to ditch the tights at all in Ireland because it's usually too cold for bare legs ;-) I wore my leather jacket with a fur collar to keep me snug and my taupe ankle boots which have been featured in an outfit post on my blog before. They have a lovely studded detail on the heel and they are so comfy to walk in as well. To brighten up the outfit, I wore my red printed scarf. For my accessories, I went very simple with the beaded bracelet that a friend bought for me.



What I wore:

Jacket // Zara
Scarf // A-wear
Top // Bershka
Skirt // Asos
Boots // Penneys (Primark)

And here's a photo of my beautiful niece, Elsie in her leprechaun babygro and my lovely sister :-)


I hope you all had a lovely St patrick's weekend!

Love,
