Layering..


When it comes to clothes I'm usually really picky and like what I like, but if there's one other person(except my mammy obv!) who knows me well enough to pick clothes for me it's my bestie! She lives in Australia (which breaks my heart!:() but she still manages to keep on trend with everything I want to wear! I love Longline blazers/gilets so much and I am obsessing over Navy at the moment! So when I opened this up I was so happy-She knows me well! Although it looks heavy it's actually really comfortable to wear and is surprisingly light when on. Dressed up or down or even layering this will be so perfect. 


I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of navy ankle heeled ankle boots for about 7 weeks! I really have looked everywhere that I could, finding navy boots is so hard at best of times but finding the exact colour of navy, heel and shape I was after was like a treasure hunt! 
(So this is why I shot this look with a pair of cute pumps to match my top.)


But luckily Mark was on hand to show me these beauties! I watch Lorainne almost every morning and their fashion never seems to fail, and either does the price!
Honestly I had never heard of LaRedoute before, so this was new to me. Even better? They were on saleeee! (The best feeling when you find something you really like!) but even better Mark gave me a discount code to use. These were already on sale from £95 to £47.50 but with the code it came down to £38 including delivery. Like how could I pass these? I know I use any excuse for a new pair of shoes but hey, when your saving that much money it's a must! 


They arrived this morning, fit like a glove and are even more perfect than I imagined them being! Even though it's coming into spring/summer I know I will still wear these so much! 


Discount code -( 25OFF or else SPRINGWEB)

OOTD..

This is not so much a full post, just an OOTD kind of post. I love these jeans and boots so much, but realised that I've never blogged about them before. I bought them in December for starting work again and I just loved the colour of them - totally right to carry into spring/summer! 


They are the softest material and fit your body so well. Everyone I know who bought these had to go down a size, no matter their body shape! So I really would recommend going down a size, and if you're really tiny? Maybe even two sizes depending on how tight you want them to be! 


The boots are also such a great colour, I wore them with brown & black in the winter, but I can't wait to wear these with my light denim and whites in the summer. All these items are still in stock so even better! Here's the links to buy all three, and yup you guessed it, they are from my favourite shop! Haha happy shopping dolls, Emma Jane xx

Suns out-moms out..







You know when one of your friends says, "ugh right, that's it - I'm not going, I have nothing to wear!" - but in reality they have more clothes than anyone you know? Yip, I'm that person! 

I am a real neat OCD freak when it comes to my clothes- each item is put away in a certain way; organised by shape, size, and colour (most importantly with all the hangers all facing the one way!) basically, I usually know the exact order they are in, so if anyone (aka my sisters) have been looking around in either of my wardrobes, I know straight away because they never put anything back in the right place! I regularly clear out my wardrobe of things I no longer wear (check out emmajanemooney on depop for when I clear my wardrobe out!), so last month or so, I was tidying and came across this pair of mom jeans that I completely forgot I even owned, from A/W 14!


So when I held these up and realised what they were, I remembered exactly why they were at the back of my wardrobe, completely forgotten about - I absolutely hated them at the time I wore them. I wore them around the house one time at Christmas time and really did not like them at all for some reason. Anyway, after pulling them from my wardrobe, I tried them on again, except this time I loved them - it was like I had bought a brand new pair of jeans, and all girls will know the struggle of finding a good pair of jeans you love!

These weren't usually my thing, as I'm usually into more structured clothing, and live in my skinnies, so I was amazed that I liked them so much. I teamed them with a new shirt I had recently purchased and a pair of heels I had only wore once to LFWND. As soon as I put the whole outfit on, I knew that it was perfect for girls lunch/dinner or even after work drinks - just ditch the black work trousers and you're set to go!


Ever since I rediscovered these jeans (anyone who sees me on a daily basis will know), I literally cannot stop wearing them. They are the most comfortable pair of jeans I own and I never thought I would say that about a pair of mom style jeans - the high waist on them is so perfect, as it means that I don't have to keep pulling them up! I wear them to work with my vans or converse, but I really would wear them for a night out or dinner with heels too! Aghhhh can you tell that I love these? Haha anyway, I suppose it goes to show that there really could be something in your wardrobe that you've forgot about and could fall in love with again! Thanks for reading, Emma Jane xx

Pop Of Print..









Ok, so we're in the second week of February and I've already broke my resolutions, no gym or no blogging for around three weeks! Time to get my ass in gear 👍🏻 I'm back at work, so the structure of that will hopefully make it easier, gym straight after work tonight for sure! 

This is probably my favourite post of 2016, I'm just in awe of this shirt it is far foo cute. The rich denim colour makes it pop so much in photos, don't get me wrong I'm all for washed out denim in certain things, but this style is so perfect in this colour of denim!

The cute bow detail makes it so much more dressier & girlier than a regular denim shirt, so that's why I teamed it up with this cute skater skirt, heels and a little pop of leopard print around my waist in the belt to make it an outfit you could totally wear out on the town or out for dinner. 

I love that it's so versatile, I can wear it like this dressed up- teamed with leggings and converse for a casual look or even with a pair of smart trousers for work. It's definitely an alternative to a plain denim shirt! All items linked below, thanks for reading, Emma Jane xx
