What I Wore: Family Dinner

IMG_3445 2 IMG_3424 2 IMG_3434 2Hello my lovelies! I hope everyone is having a FABULOUS week so far! I have been doing a lot of thinking and planning and general head space maintenance and I have to say I’m feeling pretty good! Last weekend I went out to dinner with my family and I thought what a good opportunity for another outfit post! I wore a dress by Mary Grant, I “borrowed” my top from my mother, tights by Vera Wang (I know, I had no idea she did tights, bought them from TK Maxx). I bought my shoes in the Brown Thomas sale and they are by LK Bennett. They are AMAZING! Glittery, gold and pink, what more could a girl want?!

IMG_3427 2 IMG_3451 2We had dinner in a restaurant in Blackrock Co Dublin called Le Plancha. The food was out of this world. I’m not sure if the pictures do the food justice, the lighting was a little odd. To start I had Mushrooms on Toast: Wild mushrooms on toasted brioche with crispy hens egg and cream. I think this was one of the tastiest dishes I have ever had!

IMG_3471 2Then for main course we all had different steaks. Mine was beautiful and my brother who considers himself a steak connoisseur rated his as 7.5 out of ten, which by his standards is pretty damn good!

IMG_3487 2 IMG_3479 2I loved it all so much I’m thinking of booking it for Valentine’s dinner! I hope you all enjoys the rest of the week and chin up, the weekend is just around the corner!

What I Wore: Winter Shopping Trip!

IMG_3312Hello my dears! It has be SO long since I did an outfit post. Too long! With it being too dark before I leave for college and being dark when I’m home again in the evenings I have found it pretty hard. But this weekend I was going shopping and thought why not take some pictures before I left! I almost forgot how fun it was! Its always fun dressing up after Christmas when you have new gifts and sales shopping to wear!IMG_3317 3 IMG_3327 3Today I wore a dress I picked up in the sales in Jack Wills before Christmas. I love it! I wear a lot of navy during winter. I don’t really wear any black so for me navy is my black! My cardigan was “borrowed” from my mother, its quiet old but it’s from a brand called Ann Balon, I think it’s a mother of the bride type of brand! My boots are by Ash and I bought them in a shop in Bandon in Cork called Dressed. Dressed is an adorable boutique, I would recommend anyone from or passing through that neck of the woods go check it out! It stocks amazing brands like Odd Molly. My bag is by Celine bought in Brown Thomas and was a very generous Christmas gift!

IMG_3341 2 IMG_3346 2These boots are seriously amazing. I walked round the city all day in them and they were beyond comfortable! I have been listening to blogger and vlogger Vivianna Does Makeup rave about them for ages and she was definitely right!

I’ll hopefully have another post up during the week so keep an eye out! And now to leave you with a little quote I love: “And those who were seen dancing were tought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” Friedrich Nietzsch.

 

 

2014 Roundup!

IMG_0701Happy New Year everyone! Without a doubt 2014 has been one of the best years of my life. Without getting too mushy and emotional I’ll just say I think I have really come to terms with a lot of things and have started being the person I want to be. Saying that there’s always room for improvement and I have a New Years resolution list a mile long in one of my notebooks! I am really looking forward to 2015 and see what surprises it has in store for me! I wonder where ladypennyfeather will be this time next year?! I thought I’d do a little roundup of my 2014 favourites to share with all of you! Here it goes!
