Casual Friday

Ah Friday.... My second favourite 'F' word after fashion of course ;-) For today's post we have a super casual outfit - Sure, what else would you want on a Friday! ........

Stripes and elbow patches
Stripes & converse outfit

                                      .........


The title is a little misleading as this wasn't really  the outfit I wore today but we'll roll with it, ha! In actual fact it was the outfit I wore to town on Sunday. I nipped into Brown Thomas to pick up some new makeup. I had saved one of my christmas vouchers to treat myself to some new makeup. I got the YSL Touche Eclat foundation and the Nars radiant creamy concealer - Two very hyped up products in the blogging community so I shall see what all the fuss is about!

I never normally talk about the location in my outfit posts but today I feel that I need to. It was only by an accident that we ended up taking these in Stephen's Green Shopping Centre as the original plan was to take them on Grafton Street but... it started to snow. Nonetheless this turned out to be a beautiful location. The lighting was gorgeous and the architecture in there is just breathtaking!
I'm a perfectionist so finding the best location with good lighting is actually a lot harder than you would think. People always ask me why it matters where I shoot my pictures and that question always makes my blogger ears burn!

If there were two words to describe my style it would be laid-back and casual. Comfort is the most important thing for me so you'll often see me sporting the jeans and converse combo. And that's exactly what I've gone for with this outfit. I decided to go for a grey and navy colour scheme. I wore my new stripy top from Zara which I bought in the sale for about €7. I don't usually buy my basics in Zara as they're quite pricey but this top has slightly changed my mind about that. This top has the softest material and it's quite slouchy too - Perfect for casual Friday! It also has elbow patches which I think adds a nice touch of detail to a boring basic top. Finally, I threw on my Boohoo coatigan which I've already featured in this outfit post.
