Old Places, New Outfits
Hello my lovelies! Happy New Year to you all! I really hope that 2019 is off to a good start for all of you and that you’re feeling just as motivated for the new year as I am.
For our first post of 2019 I’m coming at you from Ireland with an outfit that I was absolutely loving during my stay there over the holidays. This ensemble is one that makes me feel so killer. I don’t know what it is about setting foot on Irish soil that makes me want to embrase a wilder dress sense but growing up by the mountains and by the sea always made me feel so inspired by the ruggedness and unpredictability of the landscape. Whenever I touch down in Ireland I love letting that edginess and impulsiveness shine through in my look.
The first piece in the outfit is from an independent fashion brand based in Britain called Heresy. I think most of you will recognise this shirt so I’m not gonna lie when I say that the reason I got it was because I saw pewds wearing it in one of his videos a while back and I just fell in love with the style. Honestly I’ve been loving shopping from independent fashion brands lately and I feel like my wardrobe has got a serious level up because of it. Yes you may end up paying a little more from time to time but for something unique that is helping out a small business, it’s definitely worth the blow. I mean just look at that graphic on the front, it’s so damn cool.
Ripped jeans definitely aren’t a huge trend in Paris at the moment like the way they are at home but that doesn’t mean that these distressed patchwork ones from River Island (similar) aren’t among my favourites ever. I really feel like sometimes a distressed look can make or break the killer vibe of an outfit and paired with these patent heeled ankle boots from Public Desire (similar) really completes the badass feeling of the look.
Just look at the rocks by the beach and the colours of the sea and the sky. Everything about it is so refreshing and inspiring. Honestly being home really helped detox me and prepare me for the new year. The air is just so fresh and there are so many natural wonders to be found when you explore the Irish countryside.
Finally I’m wearing my furry black jacket that I nabbed from Om Diva, one of my favourite vintage boutiques in Dublin. What I love about this look is the variation of textures it brings to life, just like the wild landscape of Ireland.
Did you guys like the outfit? I’d love to hear your thoughts on it in the comments below! Oh and what did you do to clear your minds before the start of 2019? After my trip home I honestly feel so detoxed and ready to take on the new year.
That’s all from me for now. Thank you guys so much for reading. I hope 2019 is off to a good start for all of you. I’ll see you very soon in my next post.
