My Dream Shoes!


These shoes have been on my wishlist for many years...they even had their own savings fund :) 
 With a number of occasions coming up this year, I decided it was the perfect time to invest in my dream heels! I always knew exactly which style I wanted, and it turns out nude patent peep toes are a popular choice! These were hard to track down but completely worth the wait. I love the classic shape and colour, and of course the signature red soles make me smile every time I look at them. 

I'm so excited to wear them!

Paris Dreaming...


Paris fashion week is already upon us, with some of the most celebrated designers set to hit the runways over the next few days. I can't wait to see what Dior, Chanel, Miu Miu and Louis Vuitton have to offer. In the meantime, here's a little ensemble that would be perfect for Spring in the super stylish city!

Runway Details: London Fashion Week


Next on the Runway Details round up, we turn to the bright lights of London. For me it was all about the hearts at Burberry! Just when you think they can't do anything more with a trench, they show us how to wear our hearts on our sleeves...literally! Matthew Williamson and Mulberry are regular favourites at London fashion week and didn't disappoint this season; with dramatic pops of colour and covetable accessories. A notable mention goes to Ireland's own Simone Rocha, who showcased some beautiful coral creations! Meanwhile Emilia Wickstead incorporated lots of this year's colour du jour in wonderfully fluid fabrics and chic satin heels! 

I'm still loving all of the colour we are seeing for next Autumn!

Style Star: Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale is no stranger to my Style Star series. Whether she is walking the red carpet, sitting front row at Burberry or out doing a spot of shopping, she always looks stunning. I love the skinny jeans and boots combo she is sporting in these outfits, and the scarf is perfect for layering. What's great about this look is that it's so easy to re-create, with simple wardrobe basics that work well together. I've got a similar pair of boots from Zara, now all I need is that amazing pink coat. It's the perfect Spring cover up!

In the Pink!

So it seems like it's turning into pink week on the blog - what can I say, I'm finding inspiration everywhere! Not only is hot pink sizzling for spring, it's making an exciting splash on the autumn runways too. I spotted this Alexon dress recently and it's the perfect piece for channeling the trend. With it's simple silhouette, it's a timeless style that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion! Touches of gold would add the glam factor for evening whilst pairing it with a fitted navy blazer is guaranteed to deliver daytime chic.

How will you be embracing the pink trend this season? I've got more inspiration coming on tomorrow's Style Star!

Runway Details: NYFW


I'm glad to say next winter is looking bright, if New York Fashion week is anything to go by! I adored the hot pink at DKNY and the vibrant coral at Carolina Herrera. Winter florals were in bloom at Oscar de la Renta and Marc by Marc Jacobs, while shots of chartreuse lit up the Wes Gordon collection. It's great to see so much colour in the Fall collections! What have been your favourites from New York Fashion Week?

Weekend Style...



Leather pants and cosy knits have been my go to lately for easy weekend style! I love the embellished neckline on this jumper, which I picked up recently in River Island. And it's in my favourite colour of course! I finished off the look with simple bow flats for a comfy Sunday shopping session!

Have a great week!

Pink & Red


Happy weekend all!
I'm a little late on the Fridays's Fancies link up, but couldn't miss out on all of the Pink & Red fun!  This J Crew knit needs to be in my closet soon! Love the vibrant colour :)

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Looks to Love: Tara Jarmon


There's nothing I enjoy more than browsing my local boutiques and discovering new labels! Tara Jarmon is one such find and I am head over heels for the new spring collection! It was this particular dress that first caught my eye in store. A little further online research confirmed that the rest of the collection is equally as gorgeous! Pretty, chic and oh so wearable, the label is described as 'so Parisian and Universal at the same time'. Colours are bright, fabrics are luxurious and the overall look is minimalistic with occasional feminine embellishments. I'm coveting the lot!

Style Star: Rihanna


What a whirlwind weekend of fashion it has been! From New York fashion week and the Grammys, to the BAFTAs, the Elle Style Awards and our very own IFTAs here in Dublin, there has been a lot of red carpet action to take in! The look that most stood out for me today is Miss Rihanna looking stunning in this Alaia gown. I'm not normally a huge fan of her style, but she really pulled this look off at the Grammys last night. Gorgeous hair too!

Friday's Fancies: Layer Up


Happy Friday friends! 
It has been one busy week and I'm so looking forward to some down time over the next couple of days! 
While I'm loving looking at all of the spring lines coming through, my go-to weekend look is still very much centred around cosy layers - and lots of them!

That being said, it's easy to add a little spring to your step with some softer tones like this gorgeous Reiss knit. It's the perfect transitional piece!

Explore more lovely layers over on Long Distance Loving.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Neon Lights


Spring still seems a long way off - there was snow on the ground this morning! But it's never too early for a little trend spotting. I spotted this beautiful top in Oasis last week and it inspired me to pull together some citrus bright neons. Perfect for adding a pop of colour with dark denim now or zesty fresh against crisp whites later on. It's sure to brighten up any cold day!

Ad Love....


Spring is in full bloom in these stunning images! 
This is easily one of the best campaigns I have seen so far this season, and guess who it's from? None other than high street favourite, Oasis! I adore the modern day 'Alice in Wonderland' feel of these shots, not to mention the gorgeous girly dresses. I can't wait to start shopping the new collection!

Have a great week!

Friday's Fancies: Apres Ski


Today's 'Apres Ski' look is all about mixing textures and cosy layers! Taking this beautiful Isabel Marant knit as the focus, I added a pop of colour with the Zara booties to bring out the bright blue stripes. A faux fur vest keeps the look soft whilst the leather pants add a touch of after dark glamour!

Happy 1st day of February! Have a fabulous weekend!
