I’ve Fallen in Love…With More Clothes!

Yes I know I haven’t finished the rest of my Ireland blogs yet, I’m easily distracted. Distracted by sheinside.com *swoons*

I stumbled across this clothing website and I’m just in love with their stuff and the prices are…actually not too bad after the shipping fee has been added on! I thought I would put together this little blog post to show some of the things I am rather fond of on here right now. They have a nice variety of styles from casual to adorkable to dainty prettiness and a lot of the designs I haven’t seen before. I have found lately that most of the usual sites I check out have the same stuff across the board. I won’t chat about everything you see as, even though I love a good waffle, it may be a bit much for one post. So I will just chat about a few pieces but I will leave all the links to each piece at the bottom for your browsing pleasure.

Oooo check me out and my collage skills…


“Oh it’s all so pwiddy!”

Short Sleeve Cartoon Dinosaur Print T-Shirt

Yes dinosaurs are beautiful too. Who doesn’t love a good dinosaur based piece of clothing?!? I sure do and I just love their cheeky faces. Being in the industry I’m in I would happily rock up in this with a pair of skinny jeans and my black converse. ROAR! This cutie is only £8.20. Say what?!?!

Apricot Short Sleeve Deer Print Loose T-Shirt

This little bargain is a steal and I was just drawn to the soft floral sleeves and the beautiful deer illustration on the front. I would either wear this with skinny jeans and ankle boots or tuck it into my black quilted skater skirt with booties/converse.

Blue Lapel Short Sleeve Floral Pleated Dress

Now I love a good peter pan collar look whether it be a top, a dress or blouse with a layered jumper. I was lured in by the beautiful blue print and the detailing on the collar. I actually do not own a collared dress but I would love to add one to my collection. I would keep this simple with mid heeled open toes shoes and minimal accessories. This dress speaks for itself without needing extra bling (do people still say bling?!). Loving the hair style on the model as well.

Mint Green Lapel Double Pocket Longline Wool Coat and Black White Notch Stand Collar Long Sleeve Oversize Houndstooth Coat

I have two very similar coats in this post. I love love love an oversided longline coat. I tried getting one last winter but I struggle getting coats that fit me. I’m a size 10 and 5’7″ but I always find that I have to go up 1-2 sizes just to get the sleeves to reach past my wrists as well as fitting across my back without feeling the stress of the arm seams wanting to split. Me Hulk! However getting the bigger sizes means they usually swamp me in the waist region. Anyone else have this problem? Or just me? These coats are so versatile and can be worn with both casual and smarter ensembles. There have been many pastel versions of these coats this past Spring, especially pale pinks but I do love this mint green version to brighten up the day.

Grey Black Long Sleeve Mickey Hooded Sweatshirt

I know I’m not supposed to be spending money *she says staring at an unopened ASOS parcel on her desk* but I really really would love to own this. I’m a massive Disney/animation/film fan and have been ever since I can remember. This just looks so comfy and I adore the little ears on the hood. I would wear this with skinny jeans/leggings and my flats/converse. It has a very unusual zipped pocket along the front too which would be so handy for keeping a tiny purse and your phone in rather than carrying a bag. Want want want!

Black Vintage Floral Chiffon Kimono

All I have to say about this is:

“I bloody love a good kimono jacket”

Black Spaghetti Strap Lace Chiffon Playsuit


*wolf whistles*

Just wow! Isn’t is beautiful. I would have to pluck up the courage to go out in this as the lace makes it look a little more like lingerie but my it is gorgeous. As it looks like it would be quite short I would probably wear this with my black flatform midi heels and maybe team it with a floral kimono, like the one above. This would be a great for summer drinks or a BBQ party.

I hope you liked my Sheinside favourites post today and enjoy perusing through the site yourself. It’s an American based company so if you are from the land of foreign like myself they have delivery options here.

My 5 Fashion Loves this Week

Oh Pinterest! My procrastination station. “Just one more pin and then I’ll do something.” “Just one more hit!” To say Pinterest is addictive is an understatement and I’m pretty sure you will agree with me. It’s the little devil on my shoulder when it comes to my shopping habit too. But I do love it. I find it is a great source of inspiration for many things in my life, from fashion to baking to illustration.

Do you find that you get a look, or an item of clothing on the brain and before you know it you notice that your last 10 pins are all based on that item. Well here are a few looks/items in the fashion world that I’m loving at the moment and I thought I would share. The rain may be crashing down on us but I can’t help but stare off out of the window and dream of the approaching summer……

1. Pom Pom Shorts

I fell in love with these last year but struggled to find them in the shops until now. Who doesn’t love a good clothing item with a few pom poms here and there. Why just a few, why not line your shorts with them?! I have just purchased a watermelon print pair from ASOS, which are lined with these fuzzy balls of fun. I will have to take some pictures soon to show you all. I think the idea is super cute and I have seen a lot of pairs around that are made up of really gorgeous prints.

2. Unusual necklaces

This isn’t just a new love for me. I have always been attracted to the unusual when it come to jewelry in general, but a good statement necklace can really add something to a plain top or dress. They catch people’s eyes and I like that idea. I found these beauties of Pinterest and love their simplicity but quirkiness.


The dangley legs on the flamingo necklace makes me laugh, especially the detail of having one leg slightly shorter than the other to make it appear as though its resting. This is sadly just a dream necklace for me as it is $265. wow! But I wonder if there are any similar copies out there?! I shall have to keep my eyes peeled for one.

Deer antler necklaces have been around for a while now but I still can’t help but take a fancy to them. They create such interesting shapes.

I adore the idea of this minimalist compass style necklace as I have a slight fear of getting lost. Stupid I know, I’ve had it since I was little. This improved slightly after 6 weeks of travelling in S.E.Asia but it’s still there.

3. Kimonos

OMG these are just the most beautiful things. White tshirt and jeans…add a colourful kimono and BAM, mega stylish outfit! I took to these last year and managed to get two MAJOR Topshop bargains on eBay last spring for that summer. I wore them a lot and I’m so glad to see they have become very fashionable this summer! They are everywhere in the shops and I have to admit that I did buy one more recently to add to my collection. It’s been hard to resist all the gorgeous patterns, but I think three is enough for one girl. Well for one girl who is supposed to be saving anyway, you guys, knock yourselves out with them. I may do a little photo shoot with mine soon, so keep an eye out.


4. Pointed pumps

The summer arrives, the temperature rises slightly (even if it is just for a couple of days, just to lure you into a false sense of security) and suddenly you are hit with the dilemma. Your feet are still in winter mode. Your toenails aren’t painted and all you seem to have in decent condition are boots. Is it warm enough for sandals yet? That’s why I’m loving the look of these pointed ballet flats. I’m not a major fan of the rounded ballet flats, only because they remind me of the shoes I used to wear to school many moons ago. These pointed ones seem a bit more stylish and are still toe hiding friendly. I’m on a major hunt for these bad boys at the moment, with wide feet and a size 7 it can be difficult. Yes I have big feet to match my big hands HA HA.

I think these striped ones are in New Look down the road from my office so I may have to have a cheeky lunch time shopping peruse. Shhhh! Mmmm I forgot my fella follows my blog, so no hiding my shopping habits. My feet need them :p

5. Oversized knitted cardigans

Ok so they are slightly similar to the whole kimono love but I seem to always run cold and these come in handy. Even in the summer time, as soon as the sun hides behind a singular lone cloud, or when the sun starts to descend in the sky, I get that chill. I do really like the idea of a comfy oversized knit thrown over a cute summery dress or over a strappy top and shorts. Just a little something to cover your shoulders and take the edge off the breeze. I find them a bit edgier than a tight fitted waist length cardigan. I recently purchased a staple black one from H&M the other day that I can’t get enough of. It goes with everything and is so so comfy and warm. I wouldn’t mind getting a paler creamy colour one to go with more neutral toned outfits.



So these are my 5 fashion loves for the week. These images are from my Pinterest board so I can’t take credit for any of them, however I shall list their locations below in case you are interested in having a browse. What 5 fashion loves are you repeatedly pinning at the moment?
