Too Soon?

I am counting down the days. No…not until Christmas. This is related to that holiday but this magical day comes ever so slightly sooner. Only 18 days to go people…18 days before we can all dig out and dust off our collection of Christmas jumpers! YES!

celebrate

What do you mean you don’t have a collection of Christmas jumpers? What…you don’t OWN a Christmas jumper?! Wow you are missing out my friend, on this joyous, festive item!

If you have read my ‘Little Old Me’ page you will know that I’m a sucker for an awesome looking jumper. I am often mocked for my strange love for this item of clothing. A lot of girls are shoe or bag fanatics, but me, I love jumpers in all their forms. From crazy prints, unusual styles to just a plain old comfy jumper. The king of all jumpers has to be…the Christmas style pullover of course!

I have one or two that are just desperate to make their annual appearance.  However, whilst waiting for some work to render, I thought I would peruse the H&M website to see what new items they have in. H&M is always a winner when it comes to jumpers and cardigans. Good quality, good fit and still a reasonable price.

Just look at these beauties I found online…

Ah I want them all!

I am definitely tempted by the middle navy jumper for this season. It’s a classic print with the traditional top third coverage. I just love the combination of wintery colours that would go really well with various coloured jeans that I own. Pair this with ankle booties, a cute bobble hat and a warm winter mac and a jobs a good’un.

I know the Mickey Mouse print and the My Little Pony design aren’t exactly screaming CHRISTMAS, but hey they are still magic based and what is Christmas without a little magic! I seem to be drawn to Mickey Mouse designs lately. I am currently typing this whilst sitting in my mickey mouse print pj leggings from Primark. Suuuppper comfy! I just love the ensemble that the model is wearing. Mixing the monochrome Disney print with a red checkered shirt underneath. Just seems to work!

Who says jumpers are just for day time ay?! Mixing two of my favourite things: jumpers and the colour green. I would wear this jumper to a December date night or to a festive jaunt to the pub after work on a Friday. I love that it’s still casual but the subtle sparkle dresses it up a little. Perfect for the up and coming festive season. I would definitely team this with skinny black jeans, heeled boots, a simple long necklace and a clutch bag. I would keep the accessories minimalistic so they don’t clash too much with the jumper.

I can’t wait to have a little look around the shops to scout out the new wintery christmas stock. Won’t be long before I’ll have to start thinking about Christmas shopping. Ah I love this time of year! If it wasn’t for the constant rain, then this would be my favourite time of year for sure!!

You guys got your Christmas attire at the ready? Not long now!

Just remember:

A jumper is for life, not just for Christmas.”

Erm…unless it’s a Christmas jumper.

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

wolfwhistle

*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.

Speak to you guys soon

Friday Frock Wishlist

Happy Friday everyone! Is it me or has this week just flown by?! Cycling to work in the sunshine and spending lunch times relaxing in the park just makes the working week a whole lot better don’t you think?

So I was having a little procrastination time at work and as usual browsed through some of my favourite clothing websites to see what’s about. Yes yes I’m trying to save money for my soon to be adventures but there is no harm in a little window/screen shopping 😉 I thought I would share five items that I am just loving at the moment.

1. ASOS Pretty Maxi Dress In Floral Print

ASOSFloralDressThis has been sitting in my saved items tab for a couple of weeks now. Sadly it seems to be out of stock…dammit! But you never know when ASOS might bring more in. I really love the vintage esque style with the small pleats below the bust line and the gorgeous button detailing down the front. It actually reminds me of a dress my mum used to wear when I was little.

You can’t go wrong with this kind of floral pattern. It’s sparse so it doesn’t make the long dress too busy and distract you from the detailing. I would, like in the photo, team this with a long pendant necklace but maybe go for a sandal style heel rather than these cowboy ankle boots. You could definitely convert this into a wintery dress with an over sized chunky knit cardigan and heeled boots. It was £55 when it was in stock. Lets hope they bring this back in.

2. Olawia Flower Print Skater Dress

MissguidedDress

Now I am a big fan of the skater style dress. I don’t have the biggest of busts and am quite bony along the chest so I often prefer tops and dresses that come up around the neck. I always prefer keeping my chest covered and show a bit of leg instead. This is from Missguided and is a bargain at only £14.99. They have teamed it with this perfect minimalist leather waist belt just to break up the pattern over the dress and accentuate the waist. I’m also loving this black Fedora hat (£12.99), it completes the look of the outfit nicely. Really tempted to get this! Again it can be transformed into a winter dress with tights, a black or bright coloured jumper and heeled ankle boots. No…must resist!!!

3. Free People Slip Dress in Floral Print from ASOS

AsosNavyDress AsosNavyDress2

This is a little out of my price range at £88 for a causal dress but it’s still a good’un for the wishlist. Maybe if I win the euromillions tonight ay?! How gorgeous is the back and the subtle ruching under the bust. My third floral piece for this post. You can tell I’m really loving the floral at the moment! With floral it comes in so many styles and colours it can just make a plain navy dress go from “ooo I like the style” to “ok I really would love to be wearing that right now” The colours of these flowers just pop out of this dress. I like the combination of this girly style with the biker boots. This is new in for ASOS, nice work guys and girls!

4. H&M Woven Top

HMTopOk ok so this isn’t a frock…unless its a really really really short one?! No? ok I thought I would mix it up a little with some tops on this weeks wishlist as well. I received an email from H&M this morning announcing their new stock and this called to me. It’s simplistic, minimalist but bold with the small yellow insert. You could wear this for smart occasions or throw it on with a pair of denim shorts for a picnic in the park. This is also a bargain at £14.99. I am tempted to purchase this as when hanging the washing out to dry the other day I noticed all my tops seem to be black, white or grey. Yeah this combines two of those colours but the yellow just makes it a little more summery.

5. Bold Floral T-Shirt from Oasis

OasisTopThere I go again with another floral piece. Look at this gorgeous colour though. My favourite colour! I originally wanted a dress from Oasis that was in this pattern for a wedding I was going to. I waited for ages for it to come in store but when it finally did, it just wasn’t very flattering in the end. This has just come in and I’m intrigued to see what it’s like on. No greasy food whilst wearing this though. It says it’s cotton, but you can see a sheen to it so I bet getting marks out of it would be tricky. I have a bad habit of getting food down new clothing, like a magnet ha ha! This is currently £32


Well there is my little Friday Frock (and a few tops) wishlist. Hope you’ve enjoyed 🙂 I’ve included the links in the titles if you want to have a little screen shop yourself.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend. I’m off to a black tie charity ball this Saturday so I’m super excited about that.

I will try to get a few photos and blog about it soon. I have a few posts that I need to catch up on so stay tuned.
