Two of My Favourite Outfits for Autumn
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.
Branching Out With My Style
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.
A Cosy and Classy Outfit of the Day
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.
A Week of Parisian Outfits
It’s funny how the more time I spend in Paris the more people back home in Ireland comment on how french my look is becoming.
While I certainly don’t make any conscious effort to dress like a french girl, there are certain fashion rules that apply to Paris and that I have adopted in my look. Stepping out onto the streets here can feel nothing short of stepping out onto a movie set. The buildings that surround the cobblestones and arcades here are famous for being among the most beautiful architecture structures in the world, in the springtime the florists pay extra attention to put their most colourful flowers on display at their doorsteps and if you go out at the right time of day, the cafes and boulangeries greet your nostrils with the fresh smell of bread and hot coffee; but above all the city is home to many of the top fashion brands that the world has ever known from haute couture to prêt-à-porter. In a city as copious in culture as Paris it can often feel like many of the girls here dress accordingly to their heritage. Also when life gives you a movie set why wouldn’t you dress like a movie star?
When it comes to my own personal style, I’m all about attitude and self expression which is why often on our blog you’ll catch me wearing a lot of outfits that raise some eyebrows. However I can’t deny that living in Paris and absorbing the French culture has definitely had a heavy impact on my dress sense and the way I put my outfits together.
For today’s post I thought I would share with you guys some of the latest outfits that I have been loving to strut my stuff in around Paris be it for a casual day with friends or for a romantic date. Let’s begin!
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.
New Outfit, Who Dis?
It feels like a while since I last made an outfit post for you guys. To be honest, things have just been so hectic since the run-up to moving to France so I haven’t really had the time to go out and shoot any fashion pics at all. Recently enough though I had the opportunity to visit the Palace of Versailles just outside of Paris. Because the location is just so beautiful and dazzling beyond words, I decided to take the opportunity to show you guys one of my absolute favourite go-to outfits at the moment.
