Last week I told you there would be more lime and here it is. Sorry but this post will be a short one because I spent my evening doing this:

If you too would like to be a domestic goddess and make After Eight flavoured cupcakes then here is the link to the recipe that I used. I’ll let the clothes do the talking, I’m sure you will be most disappointed that you don’t have to read my long winded rambles.

This cute lime cardigan is from Penneys, where else. The little diamonte buttons add to its cuteness factor.

This floral print top is from H & M and you may have seen it in this previous post where I paired it with blue. The jeans are my old faithful black skinnies from Dorothy Perkins.

These boots are from the Amy Huberman range for Bourbon footwear. Fingers crossed it will be only a few more weeks before I can wear cute little pumps again.

I picked this necklace up in Carraig Donn. I like blue and lime together, which you will see more of in an upcoming post.

So the big question is, will you be baking mint and chocolate cupcakes or wearing lime?

FRIDAY STYLE: UPDATED BRETON TOP FOR WINTER

Every spring the magazines, blogs and shops are awash with navy and white stripped Breton tops and usually they are styled in a nautical themed outfit. The Breton top is considered a wardrobe must have as it can look both chic and relaxed. Well I’m not waiting for spring to rock the Breton. This outfit is nothing new; you always see images of celebrities getting papped out and about in something similar but obviously more expensive. I like to call this look super model off duty chic. (Just because I am about 10 inches too short and 20 inches too wide doesn’t put me off my delusions, I look just like them.)

Vero Moda Monochrome Lace top
I picked up this Vero Moda top after Christmas at 25% off. I like that the stripes are black and I love the lace trim for a fresh update on the plain old Breton.

New Look Biker Jacket
I love the look of a leather biker jacket over some lace. This faux leather jacket with gold hardware is from New Look and the black super skinny jeans are from Dorothy Perkins.

These ankle booties are from the Amy Huberman range for Bourbon.

Obviously off duty super model chic requires an oversized beanie, regardless of the temperature. This one with metallic gold thread is from ASOS.
What’s your favourite celebrity inspired outfit?

FRIDAY STYLE: FOREST GREEN SKINNIES

?????????????????????? ??????????????????????

Brightly coloured skinnies may have had their moment in the summer but since I am a bit paranoid about my lower half, I was waiting for the change in season to wear darker coloured jeans. I had to have these forest green skinny jeans the moment I saw them but once I had them home couldn’t decide how to style them. I don’t want to wear them with other neutral colours and end up looking like G.I. Jane but if I go mad with the colours I could end up looking like a hippy. So in the end I played it safe with greys.

???????????????????????????????
These forest green skinny jeans are the Wonder Jeggings from Vero Moda. They come in loads of colours (I also have them in a deep red and a plum purple).

??????????????????????
The plain grey t-shirt is from Penneys. This chunky grey cardigan is also from Vero Moda. Coloured jeans are a great way to de-frump chunky knits. I think coloured skinny jeans really freshen up knit wear, giving the outfit a more modern take more so than normal blue and black jeans.

???????????????????????????????
The necklace is from Awear. A plain t-shirt needs a statement necklace and this one works perfectly with the jeans.
The ankle booties are Redz.

How do you feel about coloured skinny jeans? How do you style them?
