Festival Fashion

By Elaine Scully Styling




Girls your festival outfit must appear laidback and effortless, which as every fashionista knows entails extra effort! Simplify it by planning your outfit around one statement piece. I chose an oriental kimono (€47) for my key item and layered it over a vintage inspired top (€26). Shorts that aren’t so short are tricky to find - your figure will love this longer length denim style (€35). Comfortable footwear (hard to say as a heel lover) is essential for your festival style and I adore these block heel boots (€55). For fun finishing touches accessorise with colourful, stacked jewellery. 

Clothes and Accessories from River Island in Fairgreen Shopping Centre Carlow. Hair, Blakes Hair Salon; makeup, Benefit Counter at Sam McCauley Chemist; model, Lorraine Cowman.

Tummy Tuck

By Elaine Scully Styling

Anyone over indulge at the weekend? Feel like you need a Tummy Tuck? Here are my top tips for slimming your tummy






Firstly AVOID wearing the unflattering 'bubble top' (top with elasticated hem) - you might think your hiding your tummy issues but instead you are making your entire upper half look round and unshapely

Now here's what to wear...............




1 Statement shoulder details will slim your tummy by broadening your shoulders and drawing the attention away from your tummy.
Mandi Stone Cut Out Sleeve Top, €23
Available in sizes 8 to 16





2 Eye-catching necklaces or earrings ensure your all the focus will be on your slim decolletage and fabulous face.
Limited Green Filigree Chain Necklace, €14.99





3 Wearing a dark colour on your tummy and a brighter colour on your upper half will slim your tummy and detract from your problem area.
Blogger What Laura Loves Dress In Collaboration with Simply Be Designed For You, €49.99
Available in sizes 14 to 32





4 Statement detail on the neckline of tops ensure your tummy won't get a second glance.
Black and White Crochet Vest, €16
Available in sizes 36, 40, 42


Happy Shopping

Travel in Style & Comfort

My lucky readers are planning their holidays and suggested I post some inspiration for their Travel Outfit.

Your travel outfit first and foremost needs to be comfy!!! That said you still want to feel and look fabulous - it is after all the first day of your holidays :-0 When planning your look think about what pieces you can restyle for different outfits during your holiday - particularly for your footwear, choose a pair that will mix and match easily with other outfits - it'll mean one less pair to pack (shoes take up space and vital baggage weight)

Littlewoods Ireland Autumn Winter 2013 Press Preview

I posted last week (actually it's probably two weeks ago now) about receiving an invite to Littlewoods Ireland's press preview of their autumn winter collection.....well as promised I have lots of pics from the event to share with you!!

As is the norm at these events there was an array of rails and mannequins displaying what Littlewoods are stocking for the new season. I took my time and had a good nose through everything. Catching my eye were some amazing maxi dresses, parka's, and this really cute LBD with leopard print peaking through the back - I fell in love with it there and then so entered their twitter comp in the hopes of winning it...sadly it wasn't to be :-(


















Coleen Print Back Dress, €59!!!!
http://www.littlewoodsireland.ie/coleen-print-back-dress/1282097741.prd?browseToken=%2fb%2f1655%2c6819%2fs%2fnewin%2c0






It's always strange stepping into the season ahead leaving the current season outside. On this occasion their mock campfire and marshmallows were a stark contrast to the sticky heat outdoors!! But that's all part of the fun of getting a sneaky peak into fashions future - although for Littlewoods their autumn collection is already selling fast since it became available online on 21st June!







After my casual wonder through the rails, Caroline Morahan, the face of Littlewoods, hosted the mini fashion shows. She wore a simple shirt dress from the collection which suits so many shapes and is very versatile to style....it looked fab on her!!



                             








Their site is well worth a visit - I just had a quick browse before posting this and spotted a fab selection of budget friendly pieces such as this one..........

South Tie Waist Printed Tunic, €20!!
http://www.littlewoodsireland.ie/south-tie-waist-printed-tunic/1270848322.prd?browseToken=%2fq%2fsouth+tie+waist


Happy Shopping :-)
