Waterford Vs. Web

Hey everyone! So some of you may already know I had been thinking of doing this post for a while. I have decided to showcase some Christmas party outfits available in shops in Waterford City from Penneys, Topshop, River Island and more! However, I know it can be an awful effort to drag yourself out of the house to go shopping so I have also compared them to similar outfits online, which gives you the option to shop from the comfort of your own bed xx


I am obsessed with co-ords and suits (check my full blog post on co-ords) as ye all know, so I instantly went for this fab navy velvet suit in Penneys. I thought this cropped pyjama top was cute and looked fab under the blazer for a more “going-out” vibe.

I love how the little silver details on this jumper tie into the silver metallic skirt. The jumper would be fab with jeans also,

The second I saw this I absolutely HAD to try it on. I think cowl necks and spaghetti straps are so flattering and I feel I’m in a 90’s throwback.

I love fur coats due to their ability to keep you nice and toasty but also to feel like a movie star. This body suit was in the sale also which is a plus.

This skirt is so versatile over Silly Season. You could wear it to casual drinks or for a night out on the town. I paired it with this T shirt firstly but spotted this little black crop top also in the sale.

You can not beat a crisp white shirt. It’s one of my fave things to wear, either with jeans or a cute little skirt. This one has a little bit of extra glam with the jewelled detailing.

Penneys Haul

Today I’m just going to show off a few bits I purchased in Penneys the other day. I hadn’t planned on doing this type of post but I went in to get a belt and ended up spending a small fortune on clothes so here we are!

The floral dress- €16

This is my favourite so I’m putting it first. I am obsessed with this dress, it is so comfortable and flowy so you aren’t at all body conscious. The slit up the middle gives it a real elegant vibe and the colours are perfect for this heatwave we are currently having. It can be dressed down with sandals or pair with some heels for a nice dinner outfit.

Shoes- River Island (old stock)



The T shirt dress-€8

This lilac dress comes in a variety of colours and is perfect for lounging around the house or even to throw on over your swimwear heading to the beach. I’m going to be wearing this for quick trips into town with a pair of trainers or sliders. The gathered hem is a nice little detail to give the outfit some character.

Shoes- Adidas Gazelle



The high waist shorts and belt – €15 and  €5 respectively

These black high waist shorts are so fabulous for summer with the studded detailing on the front make them my must-have for any festival-goer this season. I paired them with a retro black black belt also from penneys. What I love about these is they actually fit so well. Most jeans from penneys I can’t wear because they gather in all the wrong places but these are suprisingly perfect. They have one top button and a zip which I waaaay prefer over a line of buttons down your crotch! So much easier to go to the bathroom lol.

Tshirt- NewLook

Leather jacket- Topshop

Boots- Newlook



The jacket- €21

This was the first thing I tried on and instantly fell in love with it. It is super light weight so ideal for summer for nights out or dinner when there  can be a bit of an Irish-chill in the air. The colour is bright and fun for the time of the year and the ties at the wrists are on trend, but still subtle. If you’re going on a “jeans and a nice top” kind of night out, this is perfect for you!

Bodysuit- Forever21

Jeans- Topshop





The Shoes – €5 each

Sliders are on trend and you are not living unless you have a pair to throw on this summer! I wore mine into town with some culottes and a top just casually but add some glam to your pool side style by adding a pair of metallic or gingham  ones in penneys. A must have if you’re going away this summer.

(Apologies for the terrible paint job on my nails, I was in a rush)


Last but not least, these fab little sandals had been on my radar for a while now and when I walked in the other day they were reduced to a fiver. Such a bargain. I am going to be wearing these bad boys with white, denim and black jeans aswell as with some of my summer dresses. They are so handy for when you want to have a casual night out with your pals and so great for dancing.


That’s all for now, I would strongly recommend heading into Penneys on your day off or lunch break to pick up a few bits. I should also mention I have a bundle of swimwear ready to go for my holiday in August so I will have the outfit diary of that trip up when we get home.
