Polka Dots & Pleats...

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Yay! Its sunny outside, finally its warm and sunny and not just clammy. For this reason I have been wearing dresses & skirts with bare legs as much as possible. This little skirt I picked up in the River Island sale awhile back. I have a growing addiction to pleats, I just find them uber flattering especially if you are wearing a high waisted style..Im really gonna have to start looking out for some pleated numbers for autumn...maybe in claret or mustard..

 I found out today that Ive been nominated for Best beauty/fashion blog in the Irish Blog Awards! There is a lot of fantastic girls in the same category & its now down to a judge to pick the favourite which is nice that it isnt only down to votes.

  6. Dear Magpie Girl,

    I am in complete awe of this outfit so completely simple but the colours really compliment each other well especially with red hair....I'm going red myself and I'm a bit worried pink will clash...will it? as I have a lot of pink in my wardrobe, but with this outfit the pink really works.

    Love the choice of boots too! Another fabulous post.
