Works Weekly Fashion

Wow. It's been a while since I've done one of these posts. 

After looking through a bunch of old photographs to compile a really personal lifestyle post recently, I got pretty nostalgic.
I have SO many lovely clothes spilling out of my cupboards but I hardly ever wear them anymore - so this week I decided to funk up my fashion a bit and it felt so refreshing!

Monday:




I went for a wintery silver look with this long-sleeved (ancient) glitter dress I own, a musky pink beaded necklace, some leg warmers and a grey snood all paired with my May Shoes of the Month. I had on a waist-belt and showed off my new Polo handbag - which was my little birthday spoil that I treated myself to.

I spent my lunch break in the travel agent inquiring about a little trip away....... to....

Ireland!  

My travel bug is not yet over... nor do I think it will ever be - and planning this trip is so exciting. It will definitely be this year.. that is all I know for now!!
If you have any places to suggest I visit please let me know!

Of course I'll do Dublin, Galway and Limerick.. so any bars or historic buildings, landmarks and must-see places will be a fabulous help for me!

Thank you!!

Tuesday:




I was feeling very French today. 

During my lunch break I went to this gorgeous cafe called Mon Petit Pain where I ordered a box full of macarons and sat out in their courtyard in black and white stripes and a beret. 

I paired my maxi dress with some pink peep toe heels, a matching pink beret and some swirly silver earrings. What a great day. 




Wednesday:




I desperately wanted to wear my May shoes of the month again - I am really loving them! When I bought them I also bought this leopard print button up seen above.

I was never previously sure if I liked leopard print or not and wasn't confident that I could really pull it off.... I'm still not sure if animal print is really a 'Jade Thing' to wear... but it was interesting to experiment with what I had in my wardrobe and mix them with something new and daring.

The working day was crazy because it is end of month so I am busy busy with admin work but still I'm finding time to do what I do best... have fun! :) 

I met my friend Ashley at Mo's on Rex on Wednesday evening for a few beers. Just another great, great day!    


Thursday:


Thursday was another fabulous day - although I only had gone to bed at 3am the previous night due to a pajama party at a local bar... I managed to pull through the day. 

I even receieved a wonderful parcel from my friend in Canada - which you can read more about in the previous post. 

I spent the evening relaxing with my family, watching series in front of the crackling fire after devouring a 10 page hand-written letter from my intercontinental 'pen-pal' - bliss.

Friday:


Today was cold! 

I have decided that I am the worlds #1 procrastinator! I'd set my alarm for 6am and was determined to pull on some sweat pants and a hoodie and go for a run around the island this morning.... but when I saw the weather outside I just crawled further under the covers and slept for another hour. 

Today's look was for pure warmth and comfort, with my favorite 'jeggings,' boots and thick tribal printed chunky sweater. I also had my most sentimental and favorite necklace, the 'OM' symbol hanging from my neck. 

Tonight, after a little trip to the spa this afternoon to get my nails done, I am cooking dinner for my family. I have no idea what I'll be preparing just yet but I'm in such a creative mood - so some experimenting will definitely be done!


How was your working week blogger friends? I hope it was as wonderful as mine - never stop smiling and sharing the love!

Enjoy the weekend!

  7. Thursday !!! Love love loved Thursday's outfit; everything about it. Who takes your pictures? I'm just curious because you're good at posing for them. I suck at posing and you do such a good job. I wonder if it's your mom or dad or if you set up the timer..! Your Thursday boots are awesome too by the way. Great fashionable week you had!

    1. Go somewhere then - book a ticket and just go! Even just for a day... catch a train and close your eyes and get off after a certain amount of stops you have premeditated but have no idea where you'll land up... it is where you're supposed to go that day <3

  15. I love all the outfits Jade, but Friday's is my favorite mainly because of that awesome sweater. I also really like your hair up like that, it displays your beautiful facial features.
