Sporty but chic for Silverstrand

Hello everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend! Mine was really busy, but in between my college projects and my work experience in a boutique I managed to have some free time for an afternoon stroll at Silverstrand beach near Galway.

For the occasion I decided to wear something sporty but fashionable. Leather is huge this season and I couldn’t help but get myself a few different pieces because this is a trend that I really like. However, I think that sometimes leather can be hard to wear especially for the day, so I tried to tone down my skirt with a stripy sweater and a pair of studded trainers that gave the whole outfit a little kick!

I got the shoes at an outlet in Italy when I was back there for the summer, and I’ve been wearing them a lot. I find them perfect for college  because they are comfortable and stylish at the same time, an essential aspect when you walk around all day but you still want to feel like a fashionista  😉

Baci, Giulia.

First post of the Autumn

Hello everyone! First I have to apologise for my very very long absence..I have about a thousand good excuses to justify my lack of posts but I guess saying that I was just plain lazy will have to do!

I promise that I’ll get back to posting at least once a week ( because I KNOW you really missed me!!!).

Now let’s start with the fist outfit of the Autumn, last Saturday I went for a walk in the countryside of County Monaghan and  I decided to wear this classic vintage blazer because it’s comfy and cosy, plus it matches perfecly with the surroundings! I matched it with a silk blouse, my beloved Top Shop trousers and black brogues ( I’m totally into brogues lately!)

One last thing, the reason why I look so out of sorts is because being quite the city girl I was terrified to ruin my shoes with the mud, which in the end  I managed to avoid by tip toeing my way back to civilization!

Baci, Giulia.

Posing in front of the Titanic…

A few days ago I went for a walk on the Galway prom in Salthill and you can imagine my surprise when I saw that nothing less than the Titanic was there!

Of course it’s not the real one but a 1:100 reproduction of the boat that sinked the night of the 14th of April 1912 in the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

I’ve always loved the movie and I have to admit that I also went to the 3D screening of it, so  I couldn’t resist the temptation to play the movie star and pose for some pics in front of this quite impressive reproduction of the transatlantic.

Even if I hadn’t plan it my outfit was right to play the part which made me even more happy!

I think that is impossible to go wrong with the blue pencil skirt and stripy shirt combo and adding a trench makes the whole outfit look very classy and timeless    as well as the red lipstick wore with almost no other make-up.

What do you think of it? Are you big fans of the Titanic too?

Rocking a summer evening!

Hi everyone, today’s outfit post is a combination of some of the things that I really like at the moment.

I got my high low hem skirt few weeks ago in H&M and it took my a while to figure out how to style it best, in the end I decided to go for a quite rock&roll look adding my vintage leather jacket and my snake print sandals to it.

I’m happy about the final result and I can’t wait for some more nice weather to wear it again!

Baci, Giulia.

HELLO SAILOR!

Today the famous Volvo Ocean race arrives on the shores of Galway and  the whole city is buzzing while preparing for a week full of fun and events.

To get in the right celebratory mood I’d like to show my readers a photo shoot with a nautical theme  that I was asked to produce during my fashion course this year.

My inspiration was the french riviera during the sixties and the location is the Claddagh in Galway.

The photographer is Feargal Norton.
