Kimono's & Brogues

Hello all,

So I'm addicted to this hat, I know. But it's just so handy to throw on especially when you're trying to conceal your not so freshly washed hair! I also happen to be addicted to kimonos..sorry! This one is something I would wear to a festival, but since I don't have any festivals to attend I wore it in my field while my sister took photos of me, compromise is essential to life people. Anyway, I hope you like it :) Also, because there just wasn't quite enough flowers going on I threw on a floral headband around the rim of my hat!

Kimono - Missguided, €20
Dress- Awear, €30
Necklace- H&M, €12.95
Brogues- Penneys, €9
Hat- New Look, €15
Floral Crown- New Look
Sunglasses- Stall in London

As always, thanks for reading!

Floral & Pink

Hello all,

This is the outfit I wore last Saturday to the Into The West Blogger Event. I got lots of messages asking where each item was from so hopefully this post will be helpful to some of you :) My favorite part of this outfit are the trousers, mainly because they are the most comfortable trousers I own. They're like pyjama bottoms, and who doesn't like wearing pyjama bottoms. I also got quite a good discount on them, as they were originally €35 but I got them for €27 with double student discount on Thursdays in Only. So fellow students remember that one. Hope you like it :)

Shirt - Stradivarius, €19.95
Trousers- ONLY, €27
Belt- Penneys, €2
Hat- New Look, €15
Necklace- H&M , €12.95
Bag- Penneys, €11
Heels- Penneys, €15
Thanks for reading,

Into The West Blogger Network- The First Meetup

Hello all,

So as some of you may know I attended my very first blogger event this weekend in the beautiful g Hotel. The event was the first official meeting of a new network of bloggers called the Into the West Blogger Network. This weekend's event was orgainsed by the lovely Sinéad from Yummy Mummy Fashion and Lifestyle. A big thank you to Sinéad for getting us altogether for our little Afternoon Tea (how posh), I was so happy to be a part of the meetup and it was amazing to meet so many fellow bloggers from the West :)

The day kicked off in one of the gorgeous lounges in the g Hotel. Seriously if you've never been you NEED to get yourself into see that hotel. It is amazing! We were then treated to some complimentary Prosecco while we waited for our Afternoon Tea, which I'm telling you did not disappoint at all. So many nice things to eat, I literally stuffed my face, and I have no shame. I was sitting across from the lovely Orla from Beyond The Fashion, who lucky for me doesn't like cake so it's safe to say I ate two people's worth of food. It was a good day for me ;)

Sinéad then presented us all with some goodie bags courtesy of Cara Pharmacy and Publicity Loft. Holy Mother of God I was not prepared for what was filling these bags. We were seriously spoiled with products from La Roche Posay, Avéne, Theirry Mulgar, Vichy, Benefit, Wet'n'Wild, Ren and yes, even more. I was like a child at Christmas! We will be smelling and looking our best thanks to the lovely sponsers of the goodie bags :)

Some photos from the day :

Overall, the day was a huge success and exceeded all of my expectations. I have to admit on the journey down to Galway ,I was absolutely terrified. I was so anxious of the fact that I am only 19, so kind of the 'baby' of the group and combine that to still being relatively new to this blogging world and you have one nervous lady. But to my relief, I of course, need not of worried. Everybody was just a pleasure to meet, the atmosphere was lovely and relaxed and plenty of laughs were had. It was so interesting getting to know the people behind the blogs, some of which I have been following for as long as I can remember!I will link all the blogs at the end of this post so you can all go and check them out :) I will also be posting an Outfit Post on what I wore this week so keep your eyes open for that too ! Also thank you to Danielle from Sweet Memories Photography for the photos!

so sorry if I left someone out, if I did, please let me know :)

More Daffodils..

Hello All!

So you may have gathered from my recent few posts that I am loving all the Daffodils that have sprung up everywhere. Call me a hippie or a flower-child but seeing them just makes me happy ! They remind me that Easter is well on the way (thank GOD because I am seriously craving a packet of Tayto, lent was so much easier as a young one). Speaking of Easter I'm hoping to do some pretty pastel/Easter themed outfits for Crimson Threads over the next few weeks so keep your eyes peeled for that :) But, on to today's agenda, this outfit is super duper cheap with the dearest thing being €20 :) I hope you like this outfit (and the Daffodils).

Jumper : New Look, €15
Skirt: Pull & Bear, €19.99
Floral Headband : New Look, €12
Sunglasses: Stall in London, £5
Necklace: Penneys, €5
Boots: New Look, €19.99

Thanks for reading :)

I always find it kind of funny taking these more 'dressy' Outfit Posts around the house, growing up I definitely never thought I'd be trekking through the yard & dodging the animal droppings in my heels but that's the oh so glamorous life of living on a farm :) I wore this outfit on a college night out a few weeks back so I thought we'd take a few photos of it (It was also the only clean outfit that was available to me). Hope you enjoy it :)

Top: Forever 21, €7
Skirt: New Look, €20
Blazer: Missguided, €36
Heels: Penneys, €18
