Step out with confidence featuring Femme Luxe

It’s a hard truth to accept, but most of us just don’t make as much of an effort as we could do in the wardrobe department. It’s so easy to sling on your favourite tee and a pair of jeans, so why bother using extra brain cells in the morning to go with a different look. I’ll tell you why if you keep on reading! Step out with confidence featuring Femme Luxe.

Look 1: I’m casual but still made an effort

It’s so important we feel good in what we wear. Most of us get dressed within the first hour of getting out of bed, be it to go to work, head to the supermarket or just as a part of getting ready for the day. What we wear has a huge impact on not only our self esteem, but it also has an impact on those around you too. This outfit above is as easy as jeans+tee, it’s still two items of clothes… BUT the look and feel of this outfit is so much more. It’s ‘effortless style’ down to a tea.

Look 2: Just stepped off a music video

This outfit is one up from the first look. I’ve braved shiny golden heels and paired it with a khaki lounge set from Femme Luxe to create a look inspired by my gal RiRi. I felt so confident as soon as I put the heels on, so don’t be afraid to spice your look up by ditching the trainers every once in a while. Everyone walks differently in heels, it puts a spring in your step, or so I find. Whether you’re comfortable wearing a wedge, kitten heel or stiletto, definitely be brave and rock it whenever you can.

Look 3: I’m fabulous bitch

So that last shot is totally giving you Morticia Addams vibes right? I just loved shooting this look in the dark, knowing I was a full on rainbow in this low cut jumpsuit. I wanted to capture how nightlife confidence is just as important as your daytime confidence, but they can be entirely different to one another. This look is anything but subtle, so if you’re not afraid of grabbing a few eyes with a bold look, then go for it! You got this, girl.

Alice’s first snowfall and Cari’s Closet

This week we have seen a huge amount of Christmas spirit with the big event right around the corner. One bottle of mulled wine gone, bank balance a little shorter due to inappropriate cheese purchases and of course all the snow! I am not a fan of snow normally, it means icy roads and slushy mess on the ground, but this week I got excited. I’m finding the love in the first good snowfall of the year all because of Alice. Here is a little bit about what happened during Alice’s first snowfall and Cari’s Closet.

Cari’s Closet is an Irish born brand with stores based in Malahide Co. Dublin, Cork City and Galway City. Its new website rivals all the best ones out there in my opinion. A recent discovery, but this is a place to be for fashionistas and for finding that all important New Year outfit.

I decided to get dressed for the occasion after peeking out the window to discover a blanket of fluffy white wonder. Alice was still asleep at this point, so I got myself all dressed and ready while she was sleeping. I pepared to brave the cold in a red poloneck from Zara and put on my matching faux fur gilet* from Cari’s Closet. I put Alice in her fluffiest snowsuit and we were ready!

She was so curious about the bright white snowfall, she found it hard to focus on just one spot. I kept her hood nice and high as the snow was still coming down. We just about managed to get a lovely photoshoot in before we took her back inside into the warmth.

Then it was time to do a few by myself!

red poloneck: Zara

faux fur gilet: Cari’s Closet

bag: Boohoo.com

skirt: H&M

boots: Nasty Gal

Thanks to daddy for all the amazing shots!
