Outfits I've Been Loving Lately


Recently I've posted a few of my outfits on Instagram and twitter and people seemed to like them so, I'd thought I'd share them on here too! The weather has been gorgeous lately... we can finally wear lighter clothing. It's definitely not warm enough for the shorts, dresses without tights or anything like that, although I have seen a few people doing that (Only in Ireland!! Ha ha!). Anyway, here's what I've been wearing recently....


Outfit 1

Cardigan - Penneys
T-shirt - Penneys
Statement necklace - Penneys
Sunglasses - Penneys
Jeans - Zara
Runners - Converse

This is my typical everyday kind of style. I love wearing jeans and converse most days because it's simple, casual and comfortable. Although, it took me forever to find a good pair of jeans! In the end I found that the best place to buy jeans is Zara. They're always a great fit and a very comfortable material. I also think Topshop 'Leigh' jeans are very good too.

Plain t-shirts are a wardrobe staple for me! I used to think that they were really boring and I would rarely ever buy them but they're actually such a key piece to have in your wardrobe. They're extremely versatile and you can create so many different outfits with them! Even the 'big' fashion gurus will tell you "Buy the basics" "You can never have too many basics". And they're dead right! You can really build your wardrobe around them. My favourite way to style a simple tee is with a detailed cardigan and a statement necklace. I absolutely love this sequin cardigan! I think it looks so much nicer than a regular, plain cardigan.

Moving on to my new obsession - round sunglasses! I am actually in love with these! ...... I haven't taken them off since I bought them. Ha ha! They're so stylish looking and they're very much on trend at the moment. And this pair were only €2! Bargain or what?!

Outfit 2

Shirt - Zara
Jeans - Bershka
Shoes - Zara
Bracelet - Alex & Ani

I actually bought this shirt a year ago and I completely forgot that I had it! Ha ha! It feels amazing on... it's so soft and lightweight. And I just love the skull print. I'm so glad I found it again!

These jeans are fairly comfortable but they're definitely not as comfortable as the pair above. I also think they look a lot 'smarter' looking than the other ones... they don't have that same casual feel as the other pair so, I tend to wear these on the days that I make more of an effort ;-).  My favourite thing about them is the silver zips on the front. It adds a nice bit of detail to an otherwise boring pair of jeans.

I'm also wearing my espadrilles which are also from Zara (can you tell I'm obsessed with Zara? Ha ha!). These are the COMFIEST shoes ever!! I lived in them last summer and they're still in great condition so, they were great value for money! I'll no doubt be living in them again this summer. So, be prepared to see them in lots of future outfit posts ;-).

Outfit 3

Top - Penneys
Jeans - Zara
Necklace - Penneys
Shoes - Penneys

I wore this outfit for a walk on the beach and it was a HUGE mistake!! I was freezing! So, if you're headed to the beach in Ireland, wear a warm coat (trust me! I only wore a light jacket and scarf and it felt like it was winter again. Ha ha!) because it's still really windy by the sea!

I love this look, I think it's really simple but the floral jeans add a nice touch of detail to the outfit. In the Spring/ summer I love wearing printed jeans. I find them so easy to wear and they're a nice change from the run of the old mill denim jeans. I usually style them with a nice plain top and simple accessories as anything else would just be too much in my opinion. Less is more!

Outfit 4

Shirt - Bershka
Skirt - Bershka

And my last outfit is my favourite out of the bunch. One of my favourite things to do is tuck a shirt into a skater skirt. It's such a simple look to create but it's a very stylish one. I personally love a good shirt and skirt combo! I think it's a really classic and girly look. I absolutely love the colour of this shirt! It's perfect for Spring/ summer and as you all know pastel colours have been huge this year! So, I'm right on trend ;-)

I kept the accessories to a bare minimum by only wearing my name necklace as I felt that the outfit didn't really need any accessories.... I thought it would be a bit of an overkill! ;-) I'm wearing the same shoes as the outfit above. They're actually surprisingly comfy seen as in they were only €3 from Penneys! They have a floral detail on them (sorry that I didn't get a closer pic. I'm sure they'll be featured on here again though.). They're really cute and I think they compliment the outfit really well.

I hope you liked my outfits! Enjoy the rest of your evening :-)

Love,
