FRIDAY STYLE: MY TAKE ON DOUBLE DENIM

It may technically be summer but you still need to layer up a bit. Today’s outfit has some pastels peeking out but it’s not quite screaming summer either so I think it’s appropriate for the mixed bag of weather we are having lately. I think double denim can look quite cool but I’m not sure I am cool enough to carry it off so I cheated a little here by breaking it up with the top underneath and wearing dark navy jeans.

New Look Denim Shirt

I’ve wanted a denim shirt for a while now but it’s hard to find one in just the right colour. This one is not too light, it’s not too dark and it has some nice fading. The material is quite thin so I won’t roast when I wear it with another light layer like I have here. I got this denim shirt in New Look recently.

Penneys Check Shirt

The check shirt underneath is from Penneys and I have had this for a while now. I really like the peach and aqua blue along with the navy in this shirt. I actually wear this a lot. I think it works really well with the denim shirt and the navy jeans.

Dorothy Perkins Navy Jeans

The Navy jeans are from Dorothy Perkins.

Carraig Donn Statement Necklace

This necklace is another recent purchase and it’s from Carraig Donn. I absolutely fell in love with this the minute I saw it and I think it ties the whole outfit together nicely.

Oasis nude courts

 

The shoes are from Oasis. I’ve said it a few times now but nude wedge heel courts are a brilliant type of shoe to have as you can wear them with almost anything and they are comfortable.

Are you brave enough to wear full on double denim or do you cheat like me?

FRIDAY STYLE: SMART CASUAL TEAL AND PLUM

Well we have reached another Friday after a short week. Sometimes the week after a bank holiday Monday feels so long, especially when it has been wet, cold and windy all week. To cheer things up a bit, todays outfit is one of my favourite colour combinations, teal and plum. As you may already know, I love all shades of green and my second favourite colour is purple. This outfit is smart casual and I would wear it if I was meeting up with some friends during the day, like for a coffee or some retail therapy.

Teal Vero Moda Top

This Vero Moda top is a recent purchase from an independent boutique. It was on a sale rail with a sign saying everything €10. The sales assistant reckoned that was a mistake and it was only new in but the manager said it was indeed €10 so I don’t know if I found a bargain or just got lucky. I love the colour and the print is really cute too. The loose shape that comes in at the waist is really comfortable to wear and it hides a multitude on those days when I am feeling a bit pudgy.

Plum Penneys Blazer

I picked this blazer up in Penneys a while ago. The relaxed shape means it works better with jeans and tops rather than a dress. The strong plum colour is great for colour blocking or contrasting with brighter colours. The jeans are my faithful old reliables from New Look.

Love Moschino Bag

The Love Moschino bag was a Christmas present from a few years ago. Who would have though a teal bag would be the perfect present for me? I love this bag!

Oasis nude courts

The wedge heel nude courts are from Oasis. Shoes like these that you can wear with anything, while dressed up or casual, and that are comfortable to walk in are a must have for the summer.

Teal and Plum Jewel Statement Necklace

I picked this statement necklace up while on holiday in Portugal.

Have you got any good bargains lately? What is your favourite colour combo?
