Outfit Post: Tailor Made

It has been an eventful week to say the least. I'm still on my ever lasting mission to learn how to drive. I recently got ensured on my mums car so hopefully I'll be able to get a bit of practice in. I already have my driving test booked but having a sore leg really put me behind about a month of driving. I can see the growing frustration in my driving instructors eyes every time I do something wrong...after all I have had EIGHTEEN lessons. Anyway back to my outfit. It was raining when I left the house so I put tights on underneath my leggings and wooly socks too...thats Irish weather for you. I was kind of going for a jockey horse riding kind of look. No I'm only joking but it kind of looks that way. Photo's by Alex.

Scarf and Blazer: Penneys
Wet Look Leggings: Topshop
Distressed Leather Boots: River Island

You can hype this look on Lookbook HERE...it would be much appreciated.

Antique Thrift Shop Haul

On the way home from Galway I discovered this little gem of an antique/thrift shop. I had to brush off the dust and dirt to uncover anything but it was worth it. I love little places like that where everything has a story. I came across this old leather camera bag/box which was handy as I have been looking for one for ages. It was the perfect size for my film camera and it has a real authentic look about it. I also found a leather belt and pair of high waisted jeans that look pretty ridiculous on but I have high hopes for them; they are currently under construction. I'll show you later.

Don't over think it


Sometimes you just need to take a moment to clear your thoughts and become familiar with what is most important to you. Everything will be Ok in the end...if it isn't Ok then it isn't the end. Happy Monday too:)

Photo Diary: Boomtown Antics

The legendary Tanya Stephens

The man made tornado

The police rave unit - a DJ booth and giant speakers

This was the most mind blowing stage at Boomtown and it was created by a group called Arcadia; they are involved in most large scale festivals in Europe. There is a DJ booth inside a giant spider that breaths fire and also had trapeze artists hanging from his claws at one point.

Here is a little photo diary of my week in the UK. Boomtown was an amazing festival and one that I would highly recommend; plus the weather was incredible. Things went slowly downhill when we tried to leave the festival. It took us four hours to make it to the nearest town that was only about 5miles away due to traffic. When we arrived we missed our bus to London and had to wait another two hours. Not to mention that I had my passport stolen so when I eventually arrived to London I spent the rest of the evening in the police station trying to get a letter of pardon in order to fly home to Ireland. We left London at 2am and almost missed out flight at 6am. They wouldn't let my friend on the plane because he had no form of I.D at all. In the end he had to buy another flight and wait for immigration to give him the go-ahead. I didn't have a phone to contact him so I just waited in arrivals for hours hoping he's walk through the door. The trials and tribulations eh. It was still all so worth it -hope you enjoy the snaps.

Mustard &Fedora

What a beautiful day!! I am still a little unsure about mustard but I seem to be drawn to it lately. This shift dress was my latest purchase from Penneys. I teamed it with my new fedora, well not new NEW but robbed off mum. I love it!! This outfit has a very 70's vibe to it. In the fear of looking too girly I threw on some gaudy gold chains and big platforms.
Dress: Penneys
Hat: River Island
Chains: Topshop
Rings/earings: Penneys
Platform Boots: Jeffrey Campbell
