Black, White and Red all over

I APOLOGISE !! Lads I’m sorry I have been so MIA lately like hello last time I did a fashion post was in summer?? I’m chronic. I had my official last ever day of college last Wednesday and I’m all set for 9 months of my final year of nursing internship¬†ūüė≥

So we all know red is the colour of the season but it can be hard to style up such a bold colour especially if you are used to wearing a lot of safe colours like black and grey. There are loads of red pieces availible and affordable in your high street shops like these boots from Stradivarious which were only ‚ā¨30!! I adore these and I love the Gold detail on the heel. Try motivate yourself to buy at least one red statement item this season.

Go Red or Go home this autumn! If you aren’t feeling like you can pull off a bright red shoe or coat, try add a little hint of red through your makeup. I wore Satin from Mac today which I have had for yearsss.

Longitude 2017

Hey everyone!
As some of you know I attended Longitude Festival this weekend all thanks to my sister for my amazing 21st present!!ÔłŹ I love outdoor concerts and festivals because it’s the one time we all get to truly experiment with our style and just wear whatever the heck we want and no one cares. I know we all try to do it in our day to day lives but if you walk into work with glitter splashed in your hair and a tie-dyed crop top you are going to receive some strange looks. Anyways, I’ve just gone through some looks I helped style over the weekend as well as the overall experience so enjoy xx
The Outfits
For starters I wore a cream dress I have owned for years from Forever 21 and paired it with an orange kimono from H&M and a brown belt from Primark to give it a more boho look. I kept my makeup pretty basic except I did a statement orange eye (cause realistically I’m not going to be able to wear orange eye shadow to work so decided to experiment) and black liner. My hair was so so simple to do, I just sprayed some texture spray to give it a messy look and parted my hair into a middle parting with two mini space buns.

The second outfit I styled was different in a sense that I took one piece of clothing (the shirt) and worked the outfit around it. I bought this shirt in TopShop for my sister for her birthday and thought it was perfect for a festival. I paired it with this frayed denim skirt from New Look and black belt with some red converse to bring out the red detailing on the back.
Getting there
I’m lucky enough to have a sister who lives in Dublin so we drove up¬†Friday¬†night and stayed with her. (For those who don’t know, longitude is a non-camping festival) we woke up and cracked open some cans then started plowing into the glitter and face paint. We found an unbelievably nice taxi man called Joe canning lol (Sidenote: he is not from Galway) and he brought us there and back and into town again after. We came home from Marley Park and then just went straight to coppers. Standard.

What we did
For starters we had to queue up and have our bags searched etc and once we got in we got a round of pints. We took the necessary pictures and got that out of the way then went exploring the venue. We met up with all of the college crowd and my sisters friends and we just chilled because the weather was actually unreal thank god. We then parted ways to see All Tvvins and Skepta then all of us went to the Weeknd. WHO WAS AMAZING BTW.

Who won Longitude?
I know my friends reading this are rolling their eyes so far into the back of their head that they can see last week cause I have not stopped talking about it. Niamh Cullen won the Most Stylish Woman of all time at Longitude yesterday. I basically had a mini heart attack when I saw her and asked for a picture like the ultimate creeper that I am. She is so sound and just an all-round deadly girl I mean do you see this jacket? No words. Fabuulous!!
Hands down one of the best days ever, everyone was just in such a good mood and the acts were unbelievable. I would really recommend going next year to anyone thinking about buying tickets. It’s kind of nice that you get to go home to sleep in a proper bed as well as opposed to camping in a tent with no showering facilities.

Co-Ord for Summer

dscn08211.jpg

Hiya! So this is my first fashion post and I am so excited to share it with you! One trend that I have loved for years is the co-ord set so I have broken down four different looks that can be suited for all occasions.

The smart-casual look

This combo is perfect for strolling around the shops, attending a function or even a night out. The best thing about this look is you can dress it up with heels or pair it with sandals for a more casual vibe. You can’t go wrong with a simple blazer and high waisted shorts co-ord!

Details:

  • Bershka- ¬† Blazer and Shorts
  • Newlook- ¬†Wrap around sandals
  • H&M- ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† Orange ruffled crop top
  • RayBans ¬† ¬†SunglassesDSCN0814[1]

The classic Denim co-ord

Two of my favourite styles rolled into one. Create a more edgy vibe with pairing a denim jacket with your denim shorts/jeans. I put a sheer crop top with this outfit and a bright red bralette. The best thing about this combo is you can literally make it work over and over again by changing up the tops and adding in a belt or a choker.

Details:

  • Bershka- ¬† Oversized Denim Jacket
  • H&M- ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†White sheer crop top
  • Folkster- ¬† Ankle boots
  • Primark- ¬† Patchwork shorts and bralette

The Fancy Co-Ord

Ok so this one is definitely not suited for a casual day time look, however the pants can be worn with a simple white tee and some trainers for casual vibe. This look would be more suited for a night out or an occasion of some sort such as a christening or birthday party. The white piping on the black silk give a luxurious feel to the outfit and is on trend with the pyjama style sported by Kendall and GiGi.

Details: 

  • Primark- ¬†Black blazer and pants (an absolute golden find!)
  • Topshop- ¬†White lace crop top
  • Office- ¬† ¬† ¬† Heels

The Festival Co-Ord

I am obsessed with this outfit! The bardot top and wide leg pants are so on trend at the moment and can be swapped around to create so many various looks. my personal favourite though is wearing the two together. I paired this look with gold wedges and a simple black floppy hat. Perfect for anyone heading to a festival this summer.

Details:

  • H&M- ¬† ¬† ¬† Top and Pants combo
  • Aldo- ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Gold wedges
  • Primark- Black floppy hat
