Hi lovelies! Okay, before I say anything else, I have to confess my profound love for these new shoes. I'm totally obsessed. I've been looking for a pair of brogue-ish shoes that don't cut my feet horribly for a while, but I think that these kinda make up for the fact that I haven't found the right pair yet. I know they're not really brogues at all, but they've got that same sort of 'collegiate' feel, I think. Well anyways, I'm in love with them! <3 

I really loved getting dressed up today. I've been working every day for the last few weeks (as a painter, how glamourous), which means that I can't really dress as lovely as I want to. ): This is the first time I wore this dress too - I bought it when I was in Birmingham on a whim, because I normally steer well clear of midi dresses, considering I'm only 5'4". But I actually don't think I look entirely dwarf-like in this one, which I'm happy about. (: And I'm also crazy about its Cath Kidston-esque print and colours!

I'm really hoping to make the most of this crazy Indian summer we're having in Ireland at the minute. I think it's hilarious that the sun has finally started to appear once we hit September, when everyone is heading back to school / college / work and can't properly enjoy it! I've also been thinking about maybe doing some video tutorials / hauls / vloggy things for the past while. Let me know if that's something you'd like to see!
Until then, keep safe and happy!

P.S. Any of ye other petite ('vertically-challenged') chicks out there, do you avoid or embrace the midi?

Oh, P.P.S. What do you all think of the new blog layout? (:


  1. Hi :) I only recently discovered your blog, but I'm really enjoying it, and I like the new design! I just wanted to comment that, at 4'10", midi dresses are just perfect for me as maxi dresses, without having to be taken up! :D

    1. Thank you lovely! I'm glad you like it.
      Oh, that's cool! Sometimes I see midi dresses that are way nicer than the usual maxi ones and I wish that they were maxi length! So you got that problem covered! (;


  2. I hope everyone loved you in this is
    so the dress.those shoes are adorable and the frilly white socks are perfect with them

  3. Love the shoes....... the t strap is adorable.... love the anklets.....
    Love the dress
    I'm gaga over your smile....

    I'm a guy and I'm only 5'5" so I understand the height thing....... funny though, my legs are kinda long.....

    so I try to show them off in leggings and tights and shorts.......

    You are always so very fashionable.

  4. Dayum girl I wish my unbrushed bed hair looked half as good as yours!
    I wanted to thank you so much for the lovely comment you left on my post; I really needed to hear that today actually :)
    Plus, I'm so glad you're posting again! I used to pop over to your blog quite a bit but I think there was a gap in your posts there! I love your style a whole lot and I'm putting you in my blogroll so I don't miss your posts again ;) (I actually rather neglect bloglovin as a reader and just use my own blogroll to get to blogs I like haha)
