Chilled Afternoon

Having lunch and chilling at home by yourself is seriously underrated. It is a task that I try and integrate into my life but it isn’t always easy with responsibilities pulling you in all different directions. As you’re reading this college is now in full swing for me and has hit me with full force with the work load of lectures and labs so looking back on these pictures made me appreciate the time I had off.

Winter in Ireland is a contradiction in itself, there is the bitterness of the air matched with the glare of the beaming winter sun. This was definitely one of those days that had me wearing a turtle neck and scarf while sporting a pair of sunglasses. Although I don’t enjoy the cold, there is something so refreshing about stepping out into the bitter air and just breathing it in. Winter is going to have Ireland in its grasp for another few weeks so I will have to enjoy these little moments while I can.

 Since the beginning of the year I have been trying to implement healthier food and dishes into my lifestyle so on this particular day I decided to make myself a fruit salad. This meal was not only delicious but so aesthetic and had me reaching for my phone to take a photo. Of course this meal is a paired with an enormous cup of coffee, what is lunch without coffee after all!

Sadly, this chilled lunch by myself had to end too quickly and before you know it I had to leave the comfort of my home and go into town to complete some of my cumbersome errands. An outfit like this called for my Office Lucky Charm black boots which I have talked about in a previous blog post. These boots are so comfortable and were undoubtedly the statement piece of this outfit.
                                                                                                  This Outfit:

                                                                                       Turtleneck Sweater: Next

                                                                                                Jeans: H&M

                                                                                               Boots: Office

                                                                                              Scarf: Primark

Turtlenecks are without a doubt one of my favourite pieces to pull out during the winter season. They are such an easy piece to integrate into any wardrobe and can be flawlessly be paired with a pair of jeans or an A-line skirt. I can assure you that I will be holding on to my turtlenecks for another few weeks at least and will be featuring in many more looks to come

I would love to know in the comments down below what your outfit choice would be for a chilled afternoon and what piece you will be holding on to until the end of the cold winter season.
