FRIDAY STYLE: THE BLUES

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

I don’t know why blue is the colour of sadness because it can be so bright and vibrant. Blue is also currently having a moment and is shaping up to be on trend right through autumn and winter. I’m taking advantage of the mild weather for as long as it lasts and using the opportunity to wear all my blazers while they are still enough of a cover up.

This gorgeous cobalt blue blazer is from Mango. I love the military style gold buttons on this.

The floral print t-shirt is from Awear. I’m not usually a huge fan of florals but I love the mirror style print on this T, the mix of colours is stunning. One thing to point out is that I would usually be a medium in Awear but this t-shirt is a small.

You have seen this turquoise necklace in a few posts. I think it works well with the aqua tones in the print.

The shoes are a recent purchase. I bought them while on holiday in Portugal.

Will you be working blue this season?

CURRENT FAVOURITE ACCESSORIES

I assume many people are like me in respect of how they go through phases with accessories. I find myself reaching for the same bits and pieces over and over again over a period of time and then it all changes and I start reaching for a new set of accessories. Accessory trends are tied in with clothing trends and change from season to season. I figured it was time I showed you what’s getting my love at the moment because I’m off on holidays and I do love to pick up some bits and pieces in markets, stalls and local shops while I’m away. As much as I love a bargain in Penneys, there is something so satisfying about buying something and knowing no one at home will have it.
So here is a look at the accessories that I am loving at the moment:

Turquoise Necklace
You have seen this necklace in a few posts already. I bought it in Penneys. Turquoise is always classy and this piece really adds a lovely pop of colour to so many outfits.

I actually picked both of these scarves up in a bric-a-brac value shop. With the warm and humid weather I usually wear these loosely with a t-shirt, blazer and jeans when heading out in the evening.

This is my new favourite belt. You may be seeing a lot of this because the pale pink is girly and the studs give it a bit of edge. Because it’s nude it goes with everything and I love the little turn lock buckle.

There was a post on beaut.ie recently that said big wrist jewellery and cuffs were going to be a big trend so I dug out this little beauty. My older sister gave it to me years ago when she finished with the glam rock phase.

Dangling chandelier earrings have been another big trend for summer and I have been wearing these ones from New Look.

Another green necklace, but this one is a little bit daintier and far more subtle than some of my others. It’s Jaime La Vie from Carraig Donn.

This knuckle duster is also from Awear. I just like that it is eye catching and pretty.
