Team spirit

As the weather is back to its usual rainy - self in Dublin, I really hope that this was not the only time I got to wear one of my favourite summer outfits this year. 

Skirt & heels are not always the first things that come into my head on a hot day. Most of the time, it's much more likely to be flip flops and shorts. I decided to make a bit of an effort the other day, although, I will admit, I dreaded that I'll get too uncomfortable too soon and just end up annoyed on such a lovely day.
I probably shouldn't be saying it but comfort is important! At least sometimes. On a day like that for example, if you're trying to spend a nice day with your boy, yep, it's definitely important. After all it's not like he'll pick up on your peplum top, paired with a perfect pair of cigarette pants and block - coloured heels by one of your favourite designers. He mightn't even notice that you're carrying a piece of art in your carefully, ombre - manicured hand (the one off, vintage clutch) and your hair is pulled back in a perfectly messy chignon to show off the amazing shape of your Prada sunnies. Nope...you could turn up in a pair of runners and he probably wouldn't know better! 

Anyway, men mightn't care - we do!

I ended up wearing a maxi skirt, a strapless neon bralet, a basketball-style tee and a pair of heels. I was amazed to find that the outfit was actually really comfortable and perfect for the hot weather! The t-shirt brought me back to my teenage times when I spent endless amounts of time hanging out around basketball field. Nope, I had no interest in sport. I was much more into the boys wearing those basketball tees... ;)

  7. Wow, what a risky pairing! I never thought a sportsy tee could look so great with a maxi skirt! And I totally agree with you: being comfortable is a must for every daily outfit. We all want to look great, but days are long and busy, so we need an outfit that can be comfortable for the whole day :) .
