I love the days Im off and going somewhere because I get to do a full face of make up and get all dressed up! I was off for lunch and had spare time to take some pictures.
Yesterday I took a little trip to Kilkenny with my boyfriend. I love going kilkenny for a day out and the atmosphere is great up there specially on a nice summers day! Penny’s is what does it for Waterford since the upgrade but other than that.. So why not take a little trip away and I wanted to buy a few things to treat myself for my birthday which is on Tuesday ☺
So firstly I went to ONLY. They had Easter deals on which was great! I picked up these:
Firstly were these jeans which are just fab👌 they are skinny style and are very soft material which makes them extra comfy! They were also in white and a pale blue but of course I’d have to go for the darker colours 🙈
Since i love everything black rhese had to be bought! They are slightly a washed denim look with a leather strip down the side which makes them that bit dressy and different!
I than added a bit of colour to my life, I bought these fab colour jeans which I don’t know how to explain (a greeny blue colour)? These can be brightened up in summer with a nice flowery shirt. These were €10.95 each or two for €16.95!
I than picked up this light grey oversized jumper. I have been looking for a nice one for a while now and what I like about this one is the high neck line and the 3/4 length sleeves. The material is very light which is good as in Ireland the weather is never that great so on them sunny days but have that chill this is ideal! I can’t wait to pair this jumper with a nice simple long necklace. This was €24.95
Than I went to RIVER ISLAND. I have to say I was so happy with the clothes in this season I wanted everything!! And when there was a sale I was straight to it! here
First I picked up this stripe long tshirt. I was looking for one like this but couldn’t seem to find a nice one. This ticks all the boxes for me it’s light material and the slits up the side make it dressy! I’m usually not one for slogan tops unless they have a good one! As some can be pointless and ruin the top! This slogan is “Paris is always a good idea” , which is so true! This paired with jeans, ankled boot heels and a bouler hat 💖. This was €33 reduced to €14
Aaaaand another stripe! I was eyeing this up back home in Waterford but was waiting till pay day and when I seen it on the sale rack it in my size, it had to be mine! What I love about this top is the detail. I love the striped boxes style, the pocket, sleeves rolled up abit and the twisted detail in the front. Also the front is that bit shorter than the back so you could even tuck it into your jeans or leave it out! This was €45 reduced to €24. Only thing is I do have to wash it as it has abit of makeup on the collar.
Lastly I bought it flowery shirt! I love shiffon shirt’s no matter what the style or print! This caught my eye in someone’s hand and had to have it, and thankfully there was a few more left on the railing. What I love about River Island shirts lately they have open backs or slits! This one has a slight slit going up half way! This makes it that bit more dressy and different. The print in this is fab you can wear any colour with this really!
I than went to penny’s to have a look and see if there was anything different, this shop is so much smaller than the Waterford one but I did come out with a few things. Usually that’s were I spend all of my money 🙈
I bought 2 crop tops, one in black and the other in black and white stripes. Crop tops are big in now and will be more specially coming into summer! But these show the right amount of skin as they have a high neck line and have short sleeves. Will love wearing these with my black disco pants. These were €4 each.
I than bought another slogan top this is a vest top for summer paired with denim shorts be lovely! This slogan says ” make it happen”. This was €3.
I than just bought sunglasses which are rounded frames and have that leapord print style! They were €3.
And I bought a very simple gold necklace. It’s long with just a simple straight line that’s dented abit on one side which will go lovely with the grey jumper I bought! That was €2.
Now if you never heard of this place or never been you NEED to go! It’s my new addiction 💖 and what’s a trip to Kilkenny without going into this fab store!
Everything in this shop is so unique! Trust me you will need abit of money going in here because you will so much stuff! I was going mad though it was the last shop I went to 🙈 I did buy two scarfs which I will wear as headbands or tie around my handbag to dress it up!
I picked up the pink one first and it just has the 3 colours in squares going around it and seen it was €3.95 for one and €5 for two so after 5 mins of rummaging through the box and my boyfriend telling me to just pick 2 I came across this royal blue one! I LOVE it, Royal blue is a lovely colour and than it has black tassle kind of things on the edges on it! I also bought a nude turban but I forgot to get a picture of that!
This shop have amazing stuff there sequin tops/cardi 💜 here is a few pictures of what they would have:
Hope you enjoyed my haul ☺ I was planning on doing a makeup look but I woke up being sick today and stuck to the bed.. but I promise to have one soon ☺
