R.A.G Week 2018

Hey everyone! I literally have not been able to bless myself lately between finishing up my FYP (one step closer to possibly graduating woo woo) and working through my internship. The last time I actually wrote a blog post was New Years.. So now that I am finally a free woman, I hope to start belting out more posts as often as I can!

So to kick start the new me, I have decided to put together a little list here in the spirit of Charity Week aka RAG week because let’s face it, we all end up bringing half of our wardrobe with us back to college and only end up wearing the same old reliables.

This list I have put together has been tricky as I have constantly added then removed then added items.. These are just the basic items to bring with you that are versatile to wear both day and night, (which is handy when you are going straight from stables to icon hehe)

  • Midi Skirt

Day: Pair with a t-shirt, jacket and ankle boots or runners.

Night: Change into heels/sock boots.

  • Slogan T-Shirt

Day: Pair with jeans, denim skirt, midi skirt, tracksuit.

Night: Same as above, just throw on some heels.

*Tip* Raid your brothers and parents wardrobes for a vintage t-shirts, half of my Dad’s jumpers and T-shirts have “mysteriously” gone missing over the years….

  • Bodysuit

Day: Wear under an oversized denim jacket and track pants/jeans.

Night: Wear with jeans and heels or a midi skirt.


  • Ankle boots

Day: Literally with everything, comfy shoes are a must this week especially ones you can dance in!!

Night: Five nights in heels is tough going, ankle boots are stylish yet comfy. These are from River Island, a bit pricey but I have not removed them from my feet since I bought them. #Obsessed

  • Statement Jacket

Due to the unpredictable Irish weather, a jacket is essential. Variations include a bomber, denim jacket, blazer, leather jacket.. why not try a duster or trench coat? Some of my faves are down below.

  • A chunky cardigan

For days when it’s not raining and you don’t want to bring a coat, a big cardigan is ideal to still keep you warm.

  • Slip Dress

Day: Wear over a plain white t-shirt with tights, jacket and boots.

Night: Wear under a leather jacket and some heels.

  • Mom Jeans

Day: Pair with a t-shirt/shirt/jumper

Night: Change into heels and a “nice top”

*Mom jeans are my favourite type of jeans because they’re so funky and I just genuinely think they look deadly with heels and a crop top compared to most girls in skinny jeans. Be different and all that..

Redlane 16.12.17

Hey everyone! This little post is just showcasing some local fashion as well as supporting local business here in our very own Waterford. All of the items shown can be found in store in Redlane Boutique in Tramore or online at http://www.redlane.ie.

Now although I love to shop in my normal high street shops such as Penneys, River Island, Topshop etc, I do like to broaden my fashion horizons if I have a special occasion such as a wedding or our annual Race Day. The best thing about Redlane I felt was that firstly, the staff were so helpful that I felt like I was shopping with a couple of my friends but also the HUGE selection of clothes which you wouldn’t normally find in boutique shops. Take a look and see for yourself a mix between both casual and dressy.

For anyone looking for a day out, why not head to the races in Tramore on New Years Day? I know where I’ll be purchasing my outfit …..

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 😳

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 €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.


Boots – Stradivarious, Coat – NewLook, Tshirt dress – H&M
Below are some different red pieces I styled into looks that can be worn Day or Night.

Boots – Stradivarious, Skirt – Topshop, Jumper – Calvin Klein


“Tearaway” shirt from Topshop

Mens Large t shirt tied up from SportDirect.com €5!!
Heels – Shoerack, Skirt – Topshop, Coat – H&M
Coat – H&M, Jumper – Zara, Skirt – Topshop
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.

Co-Ord for Summer


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!


  • 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.


  • 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.


  • 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.


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