Metallic State of Mind


I am the ultimate magpie so it’s no wonder I fell head over heels for this Shell Pink Metallic Midi Skirt when I saw it last week in New Look and I got even more excited when I spotted this glitter box purse in the exact same hues to match. Don’t you just love it when that happens ?!


I’ve paired with this divine Floral Metallic Collar by Irish Designer, Emma Manley, handmade with individual perforated leather petals. I’m a huge fan of Emma’s accessories and clothing and even though this collar is from last year’s collection, I think it’s a truly unique statement piece which will always add value to your accessory collection.

Emma has also recently launched a new bag range made up of other precious petal beauties. I first saw samples of these back in January at Showcase in the RDS and they have been on my wishlist ever since. Have a peek, I promise it’s worth it, even just to swoon.


I’m also wearing this simple black crop top which I bought recently in one of my favourite shops, Folkster along with my fateful Prada Baroque Sunnies from Brown Thomas to complete the look.

I shot this outfit last weekend in the Fun Fair in Killarney, which was one of my favourite Summer spots growing up.  The scent of candy floss mingled with the alternating noise of slot machines, cheesy pop music and little squeals of joy brought out the child in me and by the end I  was just dying for a whizz on the waltzers.

Thanks so much to Kenny and the gang for allowing me to shoot there, I had so much fun.


I hope you like the look and that the location has brought back some little nuggets of nostalgia for you too.

Just incase pink is not your bag, I’m leaving you with some more of my other pleated favourites to ease you into a metallic state of mind.

Until next time,

Laura XO
