Autumn is here and so is my favourite season! As an autumn baby and a libra myself I have always really resonated with the change of weather in October. I just love to see the leaves falling from the trees, how the colour palette of the world changes from green to orange and how all of the autumn warm colours contrast with the dark blue sky in the evenings. The weather this time of year is perfect for hot cups of tea, chai lattes, warm blankets, cuddles and cosy sweaters and what could honestly be better than that?
I really come into my element in the Autumn and especially during October because I get so excited for Halloween, my birthday and just spooky season in general so it’s a given that I would feel like my style is at its peak this time of year.
If you guys watched my latest lookbook on YouTube you’d see a lot of my favouite outfits that I’ve been wearing in Paris lately but I still thought I’d share some photos here too.
A common misconception about shopping ethically that I hear is that it costs an arm and a leg to buy new, ethically made clothes. In today’s post I’m going to share some sustainable fashion brands that I’ve tried and loved and that won’t cost you much more than any other high street store. Let’s start.
It was hard for me to make the change to wearing mom jeans and to be ok with it, I’m not going to lie. I’m only 5’2 so daring to wear something that carries the risk of making my legs look smaller and stumpier than they actually are was no easy task but recently when I was in River Island I found the most perfect pair of mom jeans I have ever tried in all my days. So needless to say, I have been converted.
Autumn is finally here which means that it’s time to bring out the shades in your wardrobe that match with the harmony of the falling leaves on the trees. Autumn has always been my favourite season for two reasons; the first being that the colours are just so warm, so ethereal and the world is practically dyed a different shade of beautiful by the faint sun that shines through the trees as well as the multi-coloured leaves that fall from them. The second reason is because it’s just so delightfully cozy and that’s exactly why I’m coming to you for today’s post from the comfort of a Parisian cafe corner.
Hey everyone! I hope you’re all doing well and that you’re having a lovely September so far.
When I was back in Ireland during the holidays last month it was pretty much a rite of passage for me to go to Boots and to see what they had. Since it doesn’t exist in France and we don’t always find the same products here, I always have so much fun browsing the rails for makeup and beauty bargains so today I’m super exited to share what I got with you!
As we get deeper and deeper into the summer, the streets of Paris become emptier and emptier especially when there is a heatwave stifling the whole city. After two years living in Paris, I’m no stranger to the city’s transformation into a ghost town during the summer months and so last week I decided to join in on bandwagon of the Parisian exodus and retreat down to the countryside for a breath of french air.
Because I was mainly enjoying my time away from the hustle and bustle and daily struggle of defending myself in Paris (fellow foreign strugglers where you at?) I didn’t take that many photos of the landscapes that surrounded me nor of many of my experiences. (It was the holiday mentality all week but sure you know yourself.)
I did however snap quite a lot of outfit photos and put together a lookbook which is exactly what this post is about.
When I was shooting the outfits for this blogpost I unintentionally managed to wear the exact same pair of jeans in all three of my outfits…but can you really blame me? Light wash jeans are just so versatile for summer so for today’s post I’m going to show you three different looks I’ve been loving for this late summer weather.
