Last weekend was my first proper night out in over a year! It was long overdue.
I won’t lie to you, it was fun! So much fun in fact that my head and my voice the next day were a bit worse for wear. There was a lot of talking and laughing and catching up with people who I hadn’t seen in so long. Most of them didn’t even know I’d had a baby! I took that as a compliment 😉
I wanted to feel sexy but keep it somewhat casual and seeing as we’re still waiting for our lovely Irish summer I decided to keep the shorts, but skip the bare legs and opt for patterned tights instead.
There’s one rule that I always follow when choosing an outfit. Don’t show too much flesh. If I’m wearing shorts without tights, then I’ll wear something that covers me up on top, or if I’m wearing something low cut, then I’ll pair it with jeans.
You can make an exception for a killer dress, depending on the style and the weather.
I picked up this shirt in Spain last year and I’m so in love with it. The silk is nice and cool and it flows really nicely. I love the detail on the sleeves and the zip detail on the front.
I’ve had these shorts for years! Right now they’re the only ones in my possession that fit my postpartum shape! So I guess you could say that they were a sound investment and probably only cost less than €10
This bag was a birthday gift from a very special friend of mine (Hello China Doll) and it’s perfect for adding a splash of colour to any outfit. It also comes with a cross body and a wrist strap!
The shoes! Admittedly they’ve seen better days, but they cost me €20 and they’re still going strong. I’ve had them for about 8 years and they’re still my go to heels. You can’t go wrong with black patent and a cheeky bit of leopard print.
