Weekend Style: A Pop of Colour...


Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Besides gathering materials for my pin board project, I hadn't really planned on going, far but Laura was heading to Dundrum Town Centre yesterday for a little retail therapy so off I went with her tout suite!





 We spent a lovely few hours over there and had a delish lunch alfresco in Milanos....I tried a goats cheese and spinach pizza  and it was amazing! 


Of course I spied this fabulous piece of Michael Kors goodness in Harvey Nichols! I would love to have bought it there and then but the sales are starting shortly ... Laura has a preview in Brown Thomas on Tuesday evening so I shall wait and see what's on offer.

In the meantime I'm using a DKNY neutral colour bag I bought about two years ago in a local boutique. I jazzed up a very ordinary oufit using colourful accessories from A/wear:) I did buy a lovely striped top in House of Fraser so I am looking forward to styling it for an outfit post:) 

As regards the floral trousers in my last post, they need about 2 ins off the length but I think they might have some potential!

I hope you all have a lovely week:)

  1. Very nice neutral colored blouse, belt, and bag. Lately I've been feeling that I would like to try adding more feminine style blouses like this one to my wardrobe. They seem to give a look of casual elegance which I like.

  3. Great outfit and looks like weather was better for you than here, it has rained non stop shoes and clothes are a bit of a non entity at the moment! BTW if you like Sophie Kinsella, read 20s Girl, it is a modern day ghost story and will make you laugh out load!
