A lil outfit post for ya'll this fine Wednesday evening (she says in enthusiasm while staring out at the bleary rain - bleugh!) Though autumn weather beckons, I had to post this look given that the touch of sunshine gives a feeling of summer - wishful thinking!
I bought this dress on my adventure to London a few weeks back and it' just so comfortable and easy to wear. This best part is that it is cut across the middle and held together by metal pieces that look exactly like body jewelry?! It's a bit edgier for me, I'm not usually a girl to wear a lot of black.
My hat is from Penneys would you believe but the quality suggests otherwise and I love the boho feel it adds. You can of course HYPE this look below, and let me know what you think?

The Lust List

I realise that it has been a while since I have done a post of this sort. 
Strange considering that I become inspired and fascinated by things so quickly. 
So here is a short culmination of bits and bobs that I am swooning after and lusting over right now:

I am just entering the final week of my current Design Doma diary this week. The cuteness of these products are so great that I just had to hop online to order me a new one.

These Coltrane cutout boots by Jeffrey Campbell are my absolute MUST for the winter season ahead.

Loving quirky and creative interiors at the moment. I don't know why exactly but I am going with it.

Love Madame Juliette above and her collection of awesome leggings make me want some.

Old habits die hard...floral, in jumpsuit form, swoon.

And this beauty...well I just cannot resist

Leather Cap

My latest outfit post consists of just some of my newfound treasures from my London trip.
I wasn't a huge fan of the midi length when it first reared its head but when I tried on this one, in all it's jersey loveliness, I changed my mind...slightly.
I had been trying to get my hands on a decent leather sleeved jacket and scored this one which is my new favourite thing in life.
I paired them with my trusty Jeffrey Campbells and gold accessories.

Girl About Town

The final two days of my London adventures brought shopping, lots of shopping.
Especially in the form of Topshop shopping!

As corny as it may sound, Topshop on Oxford Circus is one of my favourite places. The visual merchandising, the styling, the incredible displays, the get the picture yeah?

So I managed a nice haul of goodies from Topshop, some treats from MAC, and a few bargains from Zara.

We also made it our mission to hire the London Bikes and take a cycle around hyde park. It was so much fun. Literally taking a bike from one docking station and leaving it back whenever you wanted to another station. I felt like a kid at Christmas, racing around the roads, speeding down hills, wind in hair it was brilliant!

That brought our lil holiday to a close and back home to Ireland but boy did we have fun!

Hyde Park

Day 3 saw us wander off towards Camden Market, one of my favourite places for picking up little fun, unique bits and bobs. I picked up a gorgeous blazer with studded lapel from a little vintage pop up store that I adore. I will be featuring it very very soon. After Camden we headed for the city centre, and to say we walked the WHOLE of London is no exaggeration!!! Interrupted bus services and Olympic torch runs meant we were walking...everywhere! No matter it was great fun and we retired to Hyde Park that evening.

Day 2 of our London adventures (my best friend, Aoife and I) consisted of straying into the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, if you must, for a ramble around the famous Portobello Market.
Glorious sunshine and lots of lovelies to look at we bagged ourselves a few authentic treasures and graded our adventure a success.

We ventured out to Westfield Shopping Centre (the largest shopping centre Europe has to offer) in search of a few bargains, a nice dinner and quality tea and chats.
We surely hit the bargain jackpot in Urban Outfitters - when going to pay for our items, the charming fellow serving us informed us that it was 'buy one get one free' - WINNING!
Nonetheless we each cam out with two items and paid only £10!

As I mentioned the day was an absolute scorcher so I wore this floral dress. Can't believe I haven't featured it before because it is certainly one of my go-to items all year round.
I accessorized with heavy gold accessories and coral espadrilles.
