Ear Jackets

This week I was introduced to the wondrous world of ear jackets by Raquel Leila. I’d never heard the term ear jacket before so I was intrigued to see what they were and how they were worn. The term refers to the way that you ear is surrounded by the earring with a piece at the front and at the back as you can see in the photograph! These are perfect for me as I’m not a massive earring person and have been saying for ages that I want to venture away from the simple stud earrings, small steps people! Raquel Leila is a Canadian based jewellery brand all designed by the beautiful Raquel Leila Waldman, the pieces have a contemporary feel with simple geometric designs that look amazing layered or worn individually! I love these earrings because they’re the perfect balance between the classic stud and a more up to date design! You can buy my ear jackets here, and below I’ve put some of my favourite items from the collection!   Don’t forget to sign up to the newsletter here for $10 off of your first purchase!!

White Inspiration

  I don’t know if you’ve noticed but white is EVERYWHERE at the minute! I know its a timeless colour that goes with anything and there’s always some variation of a white trend in stores each summer, but this year I feel like there’s even more than usual! To help you ( and me) to see how white can be worn, I’ve put together some of my favourite images courtesy of pinterest! I’ve also made a little white wish list! I personally LOVE the image above of the oversized white dress and knee high gladiators. I’m all about oversized clothes and I think that tan and white sit together like two peas in a pod!   When I think of white in the summer, I think of beachy hair and light flowing fabric ( see picture on right), but ( see picture on left) white works so well with structure, making the most beautifully tailored pieces.         1- Ear Jackets – Raquel Leila | 2- White Jeans – Topshop | 3- White Dress – H&M | 4- Lace Bra – Elcy Clothing | 5- White Smock Top – H&M | 6 – Snake Lace up Pumps – Topshop | 7 – Leather Messenger Bag – Zara | 8 – Bracelet – Raquel Leila

Denim Skirt

I hope you’ve all had a lovely bank holiday! I always think the first bank holiday in May officially kicks off summer so from here on out, I don’t care if its sunshine or raining, I’ll be wearing sandals or skirts or both! Bearing this in mind I thought I would do this post on one of this season’s must haves, the denim skirt. There’s lots of different styles around, I was in the process of deciding which one to purchase when I set eyes on this absolute bargain from the one and only Primark! At ¬£10 it’s easily mistaken with the Topshop and River Island¬†styles! As it’s one of the most popular items of this season, I thought I would do a post on how versatile it is. When a piece of clothing is as versatile as this it’s practically an investment! I’ve put together a few looks including a smart-ish look, a casual look and a night out look! Shirt: H&M | Watch: Asos¬†| Boots: H&M | Skirt: Primark T Shirt: Topshop¬†| Necklace: Asos¬†| Sandals: Topshop | Hat: H&M Old¬†| Skirt: Primark Jacket: Asos | Top: Missguided | Mules: Primark| Skirt : Primark My favourite look has to be with the Missguided crop top, I hadn’t really considered wearing it out in the evening until I did this post. I think it looks really nice against the white crop and I’m sure you’ve already noticed how much I love this jacket! Here’s a list of some of the denim skirts on the high street, mine is from Primark at ¬£10. Topshop – ¬£28.00 |¬†Zara – ¬£29.99 |¬†Miss Selfridge – ¬£25.00 |¬†Asos – ¬£28.00 |¬†Boohoo – ¬£15.00 |¬†River Island – ¬£35.00

Highlight Reel

I love this quote, we all constantly compare ourselves with others picking out their best features and comparing them to our own worst. We beat ourselves up about the silliest things and are 1000x harsher on ourselves than we would ever dream of being on someone else! Wouldn’t it be great if we could all see ourselves through someone else’s eyes, our very own highlight reel? Try this, write down the top 5 things you hate about yourself, but write them in the third person. Then stand in front of a mirror and read out what you’ve written, would you ever even dream of saying those things to someone else?! Treat yourself with the same respect you would others! We would never say such hurtful things to someone else so why do we constantly do it to ourselves?! From now on I am going to only see my highlight reel and if I do criticize myself, I’ll balance it out with a compliment on something I love about myself! Sinead x

Getting Dressed with Pinterest

Getting dressed, the easiest part of the day surely? No! If your like me you take great pleasure in getting dressed and agonizing over the fine details of your outfit! When you feel like you’ve worn every item in your wardrobe at least 10 times and need some inspiration on new ways to wear.. always turn to Pinterest! I use Pinterest as my personal style guide, I have a board that I pin to when inspiration strikes¬†with outfit ideas. I tend to find outfits that I like but that also incorporate the clothes I already own or clothes that have a likeness to mine! It’s a great way of looking at your wardrobe in a new light and helps you to mix things up a bit! My boyfriend is a particular fan of this because it means I can be ready so much quicker and my ‘floordrobe’ is no more! No more trying on everything you own on a daily basis.. hurrah! Don’t forget to add me on Pinterest so we can share outfit ideas!Here’s an example of two items of clothing I own and an outfit I’ve pinned to pair them together in the future.. And here’s one I did earlier!   Sinead x
