Lookbook: Going Green!

Hello all!

My friend Michelle once told me that my whole wardrobe was just blue and black pieces! Until she pointed that out I hadn’t realised I was like a walking Rolling Stones album! (Google that one!) It’s not like I didn’t like any other colours, I just naturally gravitated to them.

So I an attempt to ‘mix it up’! Yes I said that! I am so not cool! I saw this stunning emerald green dress on the River Island site recently, and thought it would not only be perfect for a work event dress but also knowing I would be having a shoot for the blog coming up, I thought: Lets try green!



I styled it with some simple additions, let the dress be the statement! So I paired it with my Carie’s Closet black patent pumps (Much for comfortable and affordable than their more famous cousin!) and some Bvlgari cat eye sunglasses. I had a curly blow dry but the wild Galway elements made that one a bit less curly and a but more windswept!



You can get the dress here or here. The sunglasses I picked up as a pay day treat in Brown Thomas and they can be bought in Galway, Dublin or Cork or  ordered online here and the shoes are from Carie’s Closet as I said and can be got from one of their four locations nationwide or online here

So thats all for now, have you tried any colours that are not in your comfort zone?

PS: The dress must have been nice as Mammy Nolan has taken it for herself! She is getting her own back on all the times I ‘borrowed’ her clothes!!

Much love,
