15 January 2012


The weather has been really unseasonably warm here for the past couple of weeks! It's really making me look forward to Spring, and the wardrobe opportunities that Spring brings. I prefer Spring to Summer for clothes, as it's more acceptable to continue wearing layers, and light scarves and hats. In Ireland in Summer it's only properly sunny for a few days, but it doesn't stop the shops filling up with sandals, bikinis, straw hats, bandeau dresses and other things that are useless if you're not going on a sun holiday.
Anyhow! It's still technically Winter so I'll leave that rant for another day. This H&M dress is making me feel very Spring-like. It's actually quite a heavy cotton which surprised me. I'm glad though, it's much more flattering than the thin, clingy cotton mixes they often stock.

I've had a very lazy time this weekend. It has mainly consisted of:
  • Dying my hair with my newest discovery, the best hair colour in the world: "Mango intense copper". If L'Oreal ever discontinue it I will cry.
  • Trying this recipe for dairy free lemon curd. I try to avoid dairy and this is DELICIOUS!
  • Catching up with New Girl - it's not really my kind of show but honestly I would watch a photo of Zooey Deschanel propped up on a chair for 30 minutes, so I'll give it a chance.

What have you been up to this weekend? Are you looking forward to fashion for SS2012?

I love that cute dress - also your hair colour is great:)

I know what you mean about clothes shop selling clothes that aren't appropriate for your climate. Wellington has some good days but its FAR from tropical! We have a lot of Australian chain stores here, which is cool, but they don't seem to alter their stock for our climate. Too many skimpy clothes from thin fabric in the summer and their winter gear is just not warm enough for Wellington/South Island wear - grrr...

The dress is gorgeous, I love the cut & the wee polka dots. Your cardi is a great colour & the bow is super cute.

That copper is such an amazing hair colour!!

Ah, you are so cute! It WAS warm here, but yesterday and today have been icy cold. I don't mind though; as long as there's no rain. X

I love that dress. It has such an old school vibe and fits you so well. I love blue and yellow together! The best!

Do you live in Ireland? How in the world did I miss that one? For me, in Ohio, Winter lasts forever, Spring and fall are fleeting, and summer is long and sticky and 95+ for three or so months. EW EW EW. But it's snowing now and bikinis are already out?

I love your description of New Girl/Zooey. I kind of hate her, but she's so pretty and I'm so jealous. So, sometimes I watch it and get green with envy.

Adorable dress and that yellow/mustard cardigan is perfect with it! Gorgeous haircolor too, so flattering. The winter here in Belgium has been exceptionally warm too, I've barely had to wear a thick scarf or gloves. And I agree with you about summer fashion! Spring is a lot more interesting because you can layer and wear actual clothes instead of just bikini cover ups.

I really like the dress, looks super versatile, I'm going to have a little look for it on the website now :)
I'm actually really liking New Girl, anything with Zooey Deschanel gets a thumbs up in my book!

Such a cute outfit! It has been pretty warm in Ireland - I moved from London to Galway a few months ago, so naturally it rains 24-7! Can't wait to see what spring in Ireland is like!

Spring in Ireland is generally pretty rainy I'm afraid :( April can be gorgeous though!
