DOUBLE KNITS & REGRETS







Knit bottoms & bag: Mango - Knit sweater: Asos - Trainers: Lacoste showcourt

This is how you wear pyjamas in public . . . OK, they're not quite pyjamas, but this knit on knit combo is just as comfortable and effortless. 

This casual chic style has been on my radar for quite some time, so when I saw these rib knit wide leg bottoms in the mango sale back in January, the purchase was a no-brainer. Fast forward a few months and they, along with the sweater I purchased to pair with them, sat unworn in my wardrobe. And what better time to debut them than the start of spring!? . . . OK, let's skim over the pretension expressed in 'debuting' clothes and skip forward to me, wearing double knits, in spring.

Yes, I know, technically spring hasn't sprung quite yet, but the bipolar weather that graces Ireland isn't exactly consistent, and yesterday was one of those days. This, along with the changing seasons of the fashion calender and the rapid speed that today's trends come and go, made shooting this look a bit of an urgent matter. A pressure I regret succumbing to . . . Take my advice on this one ladies, never underestimate the power of knitwear. That shit will keep you warm. Like, really, reeeeeeeeaally warm. Not a good look for spring like weather.

So, unfortunately (for comforts sake), it'll be back to the wardrobe with this knit on knit combo. For another few seasons a least.

NEW YEAR'S FASHION RESOLUTION WITH BOOHOO.COM

Like every new year before, I saw this one roll in with a barrage of new year, new me promises. And whilst I'm not one to partake in such nonsense *(note disdain due to my lack of success with previous attempts) I was intrigued when the lovely people at BOOHOO asked if I'd like to take part in their new year fashion resolution campaign.


If you're anything like the Laura of new year's past, then you will be well into the breaking of your resolutions . . . it's OK fam, step into the circle of trust and let it all out, ain't no judgement here, for I am the queen of breaking resolutions and I feel you! It's just too bloody hard to stick to sometimes. 

But, put a fashion spin on that challenge and I'm all ears. So, for my new year's fashion resolution,

I will wear . . . more staple pieces.


Let's be honest here, we've all made the mistake of  feeding into those ridiculous, short lived trends for which we find ourselves looking back, totally perplexed at our fashion choices (silver leggings anyone??). This not only puts a dent in our ego but our bank balance too. So this year I resolve to purchase only items that have longevity, that will serve as a staple in my wardrobe. And the first port of call was this gorgeous biker jacket, that will not only suit many an outfit, but many a season too.

BLACKED OUT SPRING WEAR & APOLOGIES

jacket: primark - dress: zara - top: topshop - trainers: lacoste @asos

God have I missed blogging!!

Now that's said I'd like to start off with an apology. I know it's become a bit of a regular thing here on Style Stack, I don't blog for ages, then I begin with my "sorry I haven't posted in so long apology", and you guys are probably bored of hearing it!! Understandably. But in all honesty I'm kinda sick of it myself! Blogging is my absolute favourite thing to do (besides family time that is) and ever since I began over two years ago, I've rarely gone a day without checking out your lovely comments and the little clicks I've gotten that day, and lately I just feel like you guys are getting a bit of a raw deal. You come to visit, and there's nothing new for you to view. So let me explain why.

These past few months of my life have been super hectic. As well as being a mum and studying for my Bachelors in textile art, design and fashion, I have undertaken a fashion buying and merchandising course (which I couldn't pass up on after winning a scholarship!) and to add to the mix, both courses are a lengthy drive from home (2 & 4 hours each way). As grateful as I am to be able to add to my education, these jam packed days just burn me out, forcing me to put Style Stack on the back burner (no pun intended). Which leaves me feeling a little deflated, and totally baffled at how other bloggers manage to maintain a blogging routine alongside their busy schedules. So I'm kinda hoping that you'll stick around whilst I figure that one out.

Now that's been said, I'd like to thank you guys for continuing to visit, even if it is just to roll your eyes at my lack of posting.  

Hope to post soon,

P.s this jacket! I've been eyeing up the all saints balfern for months now, but am forever deterred by the price tag, so when I spied this little beauty in PRIMARK (yes, who'd of thought) I decided it would be the perfect substitution. So, it'll do . . . for now.

A WHOLE LOTTA NAVY & SMYTHSON

coat & sweater: asos - joggers: zara - trainers: lacoste - clutch bag: monki - notebook: smythson*
Photographs by Megan Ward


I've had a penchant for nice stationary from as far back as I can remember, so when the generous people of Smythson of bond street asked if they could send me a piece from their fabulous panama collection, well who was I to say no!? And let me tell you, this notebook is one gorgeous little slice of luxury. The lambskin bound, gilded gold pages and convenient size make this an accessory you'll be happy to slip into whatever bag you're carrying that day and of course flaunt if the notion takes you!

You can check out the panama collection here, and if you're anything like me, you will be drooling over the stunning bags, in particular the fantastically minimal panama shoulder bag, which I vow I will one day own . . . a girl can dream, right?

P.s this fur clutch! I can't even!
