Outfit Post: Festive

Getting into the Christmas spirit with a classic red/cream combo!

Cardi: H&M
Skirt: Penneys
Tights: Penneys

Outfit Post: Predictable

I've become too predictably twee/quirky, I fear. I wore my circus belt to class for the first time and not a single person commented. Like, it's just so ordinary for me to wear a belt with acrobats on it. Hrmph.

Outfit Post: Behind the Times

I'm pretty behind on posting outfits, and I'm now in the States for three weeks and will probably be too busy to take pictures. So, enjoy these next few and there will be more up in the new year!

A bit of a comfy school outfit:

Outfit Post: Christmas Market

I finally got to the Christmas market down at the Docklands today. It's totally charming and was full of families with tiny babies in giant fuzzy hats. Too cute. I ate a giant German sausage and had the most delish mug of mulled wine ever. Love it!

Outfit Post: Brocade + Red

Still trying to experiment with this bright red skirt. I do like it with this cream + black cardi, and think I'd like to pair it with more cream for a festive, Christmasy feel. I wore this outfit to run errands then go to a very cool lecture at college on queer practice in contemporary art. Oh, also I'm obsessed with this necklace from Accessorize. I feel like wearing big accessories lately, and it's really one of the only big necklaces I have.

Outfit Post: Birthday business

I'm behind on posting, all because I have no internet access in my room right now! Which means I've been using it in one of the empty rooms in my flat, but it's not nearly as comfortable so I'm only on for short periods of time.

I wore this outfit for class, to give a presentation, on what just happened to be my 24th birthday. It wasn't a terribly exciting birthday but I have big plans to celebrate once I'm home! I did get pretty much the bestest birthday present I could think of - Sherlock on DVD! I mean, I already was watching it pretty much once every few weeks, but now I have special features and commentary to watch too! I have more pressies waiting for me at home(s), so exciting! 

Sadly, the continued snow/ice meant that my gold-shoe-wearing on presentation days had to be suspended. I'm really glad I invested in these LL Bean booties as they're all I've worn for the past two weeks and my feet still feel great. Love.

Outfit Post: Book Launch

This dress is one of my go-to items for arty events - I've worn it to Davis Museum openings/events more than once. It's fun but sophisticated and very flattering. It's also comfortable, which was key for my long day yesterday. I had class, a few hours of attempting research, a book launch for one of my lecturers at which I served wine (and drank wine), then drinks out with my classmates for a birthday celebration. I got home after midnight after walking part of the way due to buses not running the full routes. Also, this sweater is so perfect for cold weather - not bulky, but the boiled wool is so warm.

Outfit Post: Brightness

Still snowing in Dublin, and the city is beginning to shut down. I'm supposed to flight to Birmingham tomorrow for an exhibition but have little hopes of it actually happening. We'll see...

I wore this for class on Monday - a little brightness to counteract the dinginess of too much uncleared snow/slush. It's a good thing I love snow so much, or else the way it's (not) dealt with in Dublin would make me hate it.
