The ‘IT’ Bag

If there’s one thing that all us girls aspire to it’s to own our very own ‘it’ bag. A piece of the glamorous lifestyles we see in magazines, something that finishes every outfit off and makes us feel a million dollars. Of course the original ‘it’ bag has to be the classic Chanel.. no post about handbags would be complete without it! For most of us the price tags make these just a dream, but the high street is starting to do some pretty great bags with some curiously similar features to designer goodies giving us regular girls our very own slice of handbag heaven! I’ve done some digging and found my favourite high street handbags and paired them with their designer counterparts!   I’m sure there’s some kind of tying trick you can do to make that front bit look the same if you want to go the whole hog!

The Relaxed Shirt

I brought this shirt from H&M a couple of weeks ago and it’s so easy to wear that I’ve already had so much wear out of it! I was inspired by a shirt I saw some of my favourite bloggers wearing a few months back that was a similar shape but with red and blue stripes, so I’d been keeping an eye out for something like this and thought I’d hit the jackpot when I saw this beauty! It’s actually called ‘Relaxed Shirt’ which I think sum’s it up perfectly! It’s so easy to wear and the sort of thing you can just throw on with a pair of jeans, I’ve finished the look off with my beige suede jacket that I’ve been dying to wear since winter!! Can we just talk about the weather for a minute?! I love this look with heels for casual drinks or dinner as well. The slightly longer length of it means I’ll also be wearing it in the summer as a lightweight jacket – multi functional! Shirt: H&M | Jacket: Old | Jeans: Topshop | Bag: Zara | Boots: H&M Sinead x

Spring Style Inspiration

Spring is upon us! All of the new season trends are out; denim, 70’s, fringing, etc, but I generally find myself looking to social media sites like pinterest for my style inspiration. I don’t buy a whole new wardrobe every season as I’m more of a minimalist when it comes to my wardrobe anyway ( as I said before, black, white and grey) so I only buy pieces that I know I’ll love for months to come and that will fit in with what I already have. Therefore whilst I do like to keep up to date with the trends, especially for my job, when it comes to styling my own wardrobe I look to pinterest for new ways of styling old favourites! Here’s some of my favourite looks I’ve found that I will be using as my inspiration this Spring!   You can find all of the original links for my inspirational images on my pinterest boards. My definite spring staple has to be my leather jacket, as soon as the weather turns milder my coats get packed away and the leather jacket makes a strong return! I love the tonal looks, all white or all grey using different textures to create a unique look. No spring inspiration post would be complete without my shopping list for this season! I know there’s some jumpers on there but I do love a good skirt and jumper combo!!

Selfish

  I think the word ‘Selfish’ is thrown around a lot nowadays as a bad thing, yes it can mean being unkind to another person and that isn’t good. But I think it’s important to remember the true meaning of the word selfish, to look out for yourself and look after yourself, which is definitely something we should be doing!! Most of the time I find myself agreeing to do things I don’t really want to do because I don’t like saying no, but that’s not fair on me, I’m letting myself down! Have you ever not wanted to do something or go somewhere but gone along with it because you feel obliged to? did you spend the entire time thinking of what you could be doing and how you wish you weren’t there? Next time say no! (*Obviously there are times when you shouldn’t say no, your grandma’s birthday party being one of them!*) Remember to treat yourself with the same respect you treat others, and demand that they treat you with the same respect! Being Selfish is a good thing! Sinead

Charity Shop Find

Can you believe this cardigan is from a charity shop? Me neither! I’ve learnt to be quite thrifty recently and couldn’t believe my eyes when I walked into Cancer Research and saw this beauty hanging up! It’s so soft and the quality is amazing, for a mere £5.00!! I love the length, though it’s a bit tricky to wear with jackets so might be worn a lot more when the weather get’s better! I’m not a big fan of colour, so I think camel is the perfect accent to my black, white and grey wardrobe! I’ve dressed it up a bit with my black coated jeans from Topshop, and my heeled sliders but it’s the sort of cardigan you can wear with pretty much anything! I’ve always been one to pop in to charity shop’s on occasion, but finding gems like this remind me that you can find such great quality items at a fraction of the price, plus no one else will have it!   Cardigan: Cancer Research | T shirt: H&M | Jeans: Topshop | Heels: H&M Old | Bag: Zara| Watch: Larsson & Jennings   Sinead x
