If you follow me on Instagram you’ll already know (and be sick to the back teeth of hearing) that I’m going to Greece next month. It’s an obligatory holiday as my sister’s getting married whilst we’re out there, but I’m not going to lie and say that I haven’t wanted to go for a while anyway! But seriously, not my choice guys, I’m being forced to! Anyway, we all know it’s outrageous to imagine someone wearing the same clothes two holidays in a row (who even does that?) so any time spent away is always the perfect excuse. This year when my boyfriend asked why exactly the clothes from last year were no longer up to scratch, I went with ‘ these clothes are so not me any more’ and the favourite ‘my style has evolved’ – what it has! After posting that I was off to Greece (ok I’ll stop) over on instagram, I was overwhelmed with the response of the lovely people who have truly made sure that I’ll be looking fly by the pool this summer. My personal favourite will always be Triangl, there’s so many rip offs and fakes around but when you hold an original in your hands, there’s no comparison. And guess what? it matches my super cute speaker from Coloud, who doesn’t love some music by the pool? So I wanted to do a little post for you guy’s to show you the pieces I’m in love with and give you a preview of what I’ll be wearing in Greece (sorry I couldn’t resist). *Bikini: Triangl | *Sunglasses: Zero UV | *Speaker: Coloud | *Headphones: Coloud | *Towel: Yonder Living Oh by the way, did I mention I’m going to Greece next month?

Mixing it up

When it comes to my jewellery I’m a bit unconventional. I’ve always been told that in life, there’s two kinds of people, those that wear silver and those that wear gold. Me however, I like both. Not so bad your thinking, one day you feel like wearing silver, you wear silver. One day you feel like wearing gold, you wear gold. No! I’m not talking either/or here guys, I’m talking about and. Silver and gold, and hey why not and rose gold whilst were at it? I know a lot of people box wearing gold and silver together in the same category as not cutting your toenails on a Sunday and putting an umbrella up inside, but I ain’t one of those! I love the clash and I know I’m not the only one, recently, it’s not only become more acceptable but I feel like the clashing of metals has almost become a jewellery trend in itself. The lovely people over at Magpie on the run noticed my unsavoury love for mixing it up a bit and sent me some beautiful pieces to style and clash up. I mean look, one of their rings even has silver and gold together on one ring, they know me so well! If you are like me and love the clash metals then you can treat yourself (or someone else) to something beautiful from the Magpie on the run shop with 20% off using the code ‘LSM20’, you can thank me later!   *Watch: Urban Watch | Bracelet: Primark | *Necklace: Magpie on the run | *Rose Gold Ring: Magpie on the run | *Silver Pointed Ring: Stroem Design | *Silver and Gold V Ring: Magpie on the Run

The Happy Checklist

One of my guilty pleasures when I have some spare time on my hands is to scour the net for other fashion blogs, reading months back and getting totally hooked for far too long! When I was indulging myself the other day I came across this Happy Checklist from Chapter Friday. The concept of making time in your everyday life for small moments that can bring you a little happiness is something that really appealed to me! If your a regular reader of my blog you’ll know I’m very much a crusader of all things mindfulness, constantly looking for things to bring me happiness and positivity. So when I saw this I thought, I’m in. I’m not great at sticking to order so to start off I thought I would choose an easy one, to treat myself to a magazine I love. I’m actually a subscriber to Elle magazine yet I never seem to find the time to sit down and read it. In the corner of my room I have a steadily building pile of unread copies forming, so I decided to take some time out to indulge myself in a cup of tea and a good old magazine session. I think you should try it too! Each task is so simple and easy yet brings small moments of joy to your everyday life, if this list isn’t quite to your liking, why don’t you take a moment to think about what makes you tick and make your own list! I’d definitely add taking my dog to the field for an early morning play to the list, seeing her happy little face brings me so much joy, I can’t think of a better way to start the day! You can see the original post from Chapter Friday and print your own happy checklist here.

Lace Love

Hi, my names Sinead and I’ve been a cold shoulder addict for a month. My particular weakness is anything white, crochet or lace. My dirty little secrets out and now I’m free to bare my shoulders to the world! So when the opportunity to work with Rare London came up, this playsuit was the obvious choice, I mean look at those shoulders, the lace detailing, the scallop edge.. divine. I wish I was going on holiday tomorrow, this little beauty is going to look spectacular on the streets of Rhodes! It’s quite a dressy piece, Rare London generally are known for their amazing dresses and party ready pieces, but as a casual jeans and t shirt kinda gal I decided to style it how I would wear it. It’s definitely a versatile piece, I’d wear it with heels on a girls night out but I’d also wear it how I’ve styled it here on holiday or to go for lunch!     You can get my playsuit here, or view the whole Rare London collection here!

Style Inspiration : Cold Shoulder

Pretty much everything I’ve brought in the last few weeks is missing one vital ( or not so vital) piece, the shoulders. i don’t know what it is about a top with no shoulders that get’s me so excited but I’m just loving it right now. Even with a pair of jeans they look super summery and in a dress or playsuit it’s just ir – es – ist – a – ble !! There’s nothing like no shoulders that says SUMMER, honestly guys, you heard it here first, shoulders are so last season. So since I’m totally obsessed I’ve currently got baskets brimming here there and everywhere with shoulder-less goodies on every site you can think of. I thought I would share my cold shoulder love with you guys and pick out some of my favourites on the web!
