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.

BASIC







Jeans, jumper & belt: Primark - Boots: Topshop - Jacket: Boohoo - Bag: Mango

When asked what I study (fashion design and textiles for those non-regular readers! Why you no come here more though!?) I am more than often met with the response of "Well that must be fun" or "sounds exciting", and even the odd "how do you study fashion", and it is, fun and exciting, but also extremely demanding. More so than I ever could have anticipated. So, whilst I dream of traipsing into uni dressed like an eager fashion week goer and impressing my fellow fashion bitches, who like you and I, appreciate a well thought out look, I've got to be honest here, it simply doesn't work out that way. Lazy dressing has become somewhat of a thing for me since commencing my final year, namely because I lack three of the key elements required for such circumstances; time, energy and commitment. So accept my apologies in advance fam, I'll be basic bitch'n it for the foreseeable future. 

But hey, it wasn't a total loss. I made an effort with the bandana . . . it took a rough 30/40 seconds to tie! Things can only get better s'pose.

THE GEORGIA PARKA COAT AND OTHER UNI STAPLES

Coat: *Target dry - Bag: Fjallraven Kanken - Boots: Dr Martens - Jeans & top: primark

Rolling into uni soaked to the bone, and having to spend the rest of the day in tutorials and lectures, whilst simultaneously shivering and cursing the onset of a cold, is a scenario that I am, unfortunately, all too familiar with. 

What's that I hear you say? You too have had to endure such a crappy ordeal!? Well no more! Yup, I'm being that dramatic. Discomfort can really hinder a girl's education, and ain't nobody got time for that s**t! So, to prepare for the onslaught of rain (which I'm pretty certain will come our way any day now), and to avoid all of the above hassle, go check out local company Target Dry and invest in that waterproof / windproof goodness and some of that classic fleekness!

You can thank me later. kisses!

DEBENHAMS FOYLESIDE | BEAUTY HALL RE-LAUNCH

A few weeks back I was lucky enough to receive an invite to one of the first local blogger events to hit my home town of Derry. Debenhams, of Foyleside shopping centre were re-launching their AH-MAZING beauty hall and welcoming the fabulous new arrival of none other than the fabulous MAC, and invited local bloggers along for a tour.

 We were welcomed with champagne and sweet treats on the rooftop restaurant before being led to the beauty hall, where we were introduced to some of the top brands and shown what they have to offer.


More after the jump . . .
