How are you?
Haha okay, it’s been a while.
Firstly, apologies for going awol..
I’m not sure what to say really, I couldn’t keep up with the blog for personal reasons, and college got a bit on top of me. Second year is definitely a lot harder.
But it’s safe to say I missed writing here! That’s why I’m back. As one of my New Years resolutions I am intent on posting once a week. I don’t want to commit to any more than that as I’m not sure I could keep up with my college work and post more often than that at the same time.
HOWEVER, you could catch me on Instagram and Twitter a lot more often if you’d like.. My username is lauraawhelann on both.
OKAY! Enough of the boring stuff, let’s talk about clothes..
Little disclaimer.. I wanted this to be a sales post, but I honestly couldn’t find enough that I liked to make a detailed post, so some of these are non sale items, but amazing and affordable at the same time.
This gingham two-piece is pretty unusual, and not everyone’s cup of tea but I’m weak for anything green.
It’s €50 for both pieces, or €25 a piece.
Nine Crows is another one of my favourite shops in Dublin, you’ll find them on Capel Street on the north side of the quay.
I really like this denim dress, I figure you could throw a turtle neck over it while it’s still Baltic here in Ireland.. It’s on sale for €35.
Now this is my kinda New Year’s Eve dress.. I love the corset detailing on the back and the high neck tie at the front.. I actually tried on a similar dress in topshop without the detail on the back for a similar price, but this is a lot more unique. It goes for €45.
I have a mad love for pinafores these days. I have two from topshop already but I’m already dying to buy this one. Why do I have to be broke? It costs €57.. Ugh, as if.
(If you didn’t get that Clueless reference.. I’m very disappointed.)
I love this casual boxy shirt. I actually spotted it in the Stephen’s Green shop the other day and it’s a really thick material. I think it’d be cool to put a dark hoody on underneath.. Or on cold days it’d be every nice to throw on under a big knit to have the collar showing. It’s €44.
And last but not least is this stripy dress.. I promised myself to throw more colour into my wardrobe this year, and this is as far as I’m willing to venture really. (Except for anything green, as aforementioned.) It costs €46.
Most places I saw we’re offering up to 50% percent off, so have a thrall through if you’re bored and feeling that food coma.. I’d also recommend asos’ sale and of the above, I think Urban Outfitters came out tops!
Thanks for reading, and I promise to not disappear again!
