Lost in Paradise

  Shorts : €5 // Blazer €9 // Heels : €13 // Tee : €3 // Necklace : €5 // Sunglasses : €1.50 all from Penneys / Primark. Spending Easter Sunday in Nerja was quite the experience. Its a very small costal town, and its people are quite traditional and religious, so Easter Sunday is a very important event. There was a beautiful religious themed procession in the main square, which was absolutely stunning, with vibrant colours, traditional costumes, and decadent holy statues. It really reminded me of the Dole&Gabbana A/W ’13 collection, and I was blown away by the beauty and depth of the whole event. Seen as the locals were getting all dressed up in their Sunday best, I decided that I might as well suit up for the occasion. This pink tweed suit is a recent purchase from Primark, and to say that I am in love with…

Currently Wearing

Embroidered Shirt

Jacket : Next // Shirt : Primark/Penneys // Leather Pants : H&M // Tardy Boots : Jeffrey Campbell I’ve just realised how moody I look in these photos! Cheer up there Ciara, eh?1 Its weird because Im literally always smiling, as in ALL the time, I can’t help it. But sometimes in outfit photos I do fall victim to the age-old “Fashion Scowl” which for some reason is a default-fashion blogger thing. Forgive me, dear readers! Anyways, this is a pretty relaxed outfit by my standards, its extremely comfortable (yes, even the Tardy Boots are comfy!) and it’s perfect for popping into town for some errands, or for a lunch date. You may have spotted this shirt in one of my inspiration posts here. Although Spring is indeed upon us, Irelands winter is still clinging on with both hands, so unfortunately a coat is still very much a necessity for…

Real Vs Steal ~ Embroidered Shirts

Kate Bosworth wearing Isabel Marant embroidered shirt Its time for another “Real Vs Steal” feature ~ I know I haven’t done one in ages, and this week I’m crushing on embroidery in all its loveliness! I first spotted these beautiful embroidered  shirts on Kate Bosworth at Coachella last year (read more here) last year but after rooting around for them I learned that they were Isabel Marant, and therefore a bit out of my price range unfortunately! I was delighted to discover recently that Penneys (Primark) have them in stock right now, retailing at just under €15 ~ delighted! I snapped up one, as you can see in the photo above from my instagram  They come in a cream and a white colour, with different embroidery designs, and they are just gorgeous. I recommend popping in post-haste to get in on the action, as I don’t imagine these will stay in…

My Interiors Lust-List:

Holographic

Dress : AxParis // Clutch : H&M // Boots : Sam Edelman // Necklace : Primark/Penneys Considering how much you all liked my Holographic-themed inspiration post, (click here to read) I couldn’t wait to show you guys my new Holographic clutch from H&M. I thought it would go perfectly with this amazing AxParis dress, which is covered in small sequins,  giving it a really cool “slick” look, almost like its wet. I feel like a fish, haha! AxParis have some amazing dresses at the moment, so be sure to check out their new arrivals section to see some of their goodies 🙂 I also picked up some lovely neon jewellery pieces in Penneys (Primark) last week, and this pink one goes perfectly with the outfit! I love pops of bright colour on black outfits, I think its a really fun way to incorporate trends like Neon and Space-Age into your wardrobe…
