A week has passed, a week has passed since my post man was nowhere to be seen with my mass amounts of invitations to LFW.
Non existent invitations more like!
Having said that I have had my time to soak up the glossies and surf the blog-sphere in the venture of finding my favourite trends. I have chosen my three favourite trends from the catwalk and I have picked a few pieces from the high street ready to get your prepped for S/S’17.. Talk about planning ahead!

Christopher Bailey started the ball rolling for Burberry with ruffled over-sized shirts, they were seen on both the men and the women; looking to the past as an ode to Virginia Woolf’s Orlando (with a copy of the novel left on each guest’s seat). Bailey introduced the collection as “a love letter to the past and to English history and a kind of dressing up box to visit and revisit.”
Inspired the silhouettes created on the catwalk my most recent #ootd on my Instagram shows a chunky belt to cinch in at the waist and creates a more masculine texture with the clash the feminine silhouette.

What feels like only a few days since the turn of the new year, we are now greeted with a new month. My mind cannot comprehend with the idea of the first month of 2016 being over…
The month of mantras and resolutions, and for once I have actually stuck to mine. Maybe.. it’s the age of maturity, have I finally blossomed into a mature woman? I use the word blossom, my parents favour the idea of me being abducted by aliens.
I have managed to read some books this month, discovering new loves – or you could say binging on certain series on Netflix and Amazon Prime. I have also hit the January sales HARD this month. A spending ban is definitely in order this February.
Ladies and Gentlemen this is Colm.
I never get the opportunity to really thank people for helping with my blog. After nagging them to take a photo of me, well – when I say photo I object and mean like 70?
This will be a monthly series where I introduce you to the guys that help me with my blog. take them for coffee & cake or a burger & pint depends on what entices them as a form of payment.
The people behind the camera shooting ootd’s or Lookbooks or my blogging and style inspirations I wouldn’t be on here without them today. I also think I owe it to them after standing in the cold until their fingers go numb.
I know everything about him, so let me introduce you to him…
