A Change in Style...

Hi lovlies, I have a dilemma and I'd love your help with it!

I've reached one of those points when I realise that my style is changing. I know that cause I'm only a youngin at 22 that I'm still finding my home in the style department. Although I'm very confident in my dress sense I'm at the point where I don't know what I want to wear next!? For the past while it's been cute flowery tea dresses or skinny jeans and a flowery floaty top.

But now I have an urge inside me to wear something completely new!? But what!?

Generally I become to like certain types of clothing over time but I'm bored of my current clothes and believe me thats a tonne of clothes to be bored with!!!

I guess now I'm thinking what's next!? I'm back in the working world up in Dublin and I'm seeing so many different styles of clothes everyday! I'm generally very cute in dress, lots of flowers and pastals with a little bit of preppy Rachel Berry chic thrown in and the odd converse orientated outfit.

I'd love to hear what styles and clothes types your loving at the mo so get in touch and let me know! And make sure to let me know if you have ever felt like this!

Brand Lust: Forever 21

As one of my favorite US stores, Forever 21 is a website I check quite often. Today I came across these three amazing new season dresses and I just had to share them with you.

The first is so playful and fun and I love the colours. The second is a real "me" dress and is quite like a dress Rachel Berry wore on Glee that I loved! The third, is just to prettyful! :)

What do you think of them and of Forever 21!? Although I pop up to the Dublin store every now and again, you just can't beat the NYC stores... :)

Hi lovelies, welcome to the another great guest post. This post which is written by the lovely Fabiola will take you through her favorite Summer Accessories. Some of which she has made herself!

Hi everyone name’s Fabiola I chat with Miss Kat via Twitter under @fabii_cakes and I am soo excited to be sharing with you all my go-to summer accessories. Now, some of these I have made and others I got from friends and etc, either way enjoy!

Lately I have been loving floral headbands and since I am a d.i.y kinda gal I made the pink rose one and loved it, my friend made the other. Flowers always look so pretty in hair!

                   Here are some of my favorite summer rings. For Summer I am loving gems, big stones, big flowers and rhinestones galore!

The next accessories I am loving is earrings, especially dangly ones. I love anything turquoise and exotic 
looking. I am also into the cross trend as well as you can see by my silver dangly earrings =)

FEATHERS!!! Yes, I am HUGE on the feather trend right now, from earrings to hair extensions.

Last but not least NECKLACES all kinds with stones, turquoise and dream catchers. I love layering necklaces 
during the summer especially really eye catching ones like below =)

Anywhos hope you enjoyed a look inside my fave summer pieces  and take a look at my Etsy shop > I post handmade goodies there =)

Sales Sales Sales!

Hi lovelies, please tell me I'm not the only fashion loving gal who's left moneyless after to much spending in the sales!? :D

Oh my have I enjoyed them! I even got the special River Island band (after been up queing since half six!!) and got soooo much stuff! Shops I hit this week included Penneys/Primark, A|Wear, New Look & River Island!

Let's have a look at the goodies I got.... :)

A|Wear Purchases:

So although I think A|Wear have increased their prices so much, I did manage to find to great bargains in their sale (I found their sale prices really high this year though). I got this gorgeous oversized burnt orangy cardi! Reduced from €30 to €15! It's super dressy and great for my new job!

The second thing I bought were these amazing peep toe pumps that were only €12 in the sale! These are my first A|Wear shoes and I haven't taken them off since I bought them! They are sooooo comfy!

New Look Purchases:

I don't generally shop in New Look, but I had a peep in this week and the sale had just started!I got this gorgeous skirt and cutesy shorts for €10 each and the bangles & ring were a steal to!

Penneys/Primark Purchases:

I am a divil for the cardigans and these gorgeous preppy chic cardigans were only €3 and €5 in the sale! Bargain!!

River Island Sale:

This sale rocked my socks!! I got so much and due to my special discount brand I only paid half the price of the sale price!! €65 for all these goodies! Shoulda been €130 in the sale minus the band!

Lucky Meeeee!

I also met Whitney Port on Friday and she was sooo nice and looks so amazing in person! My phone died right as I was about to get a pic with her (im devo) but here's my autograph and a shot I got of her at the Kildare Village Event that I got online! 

Today I'm off to see Glee perform in Dublin and I am so excited! This is a dream come through foe me as I'm the hugest fan! I dress quite like Rachel Berry so today Im sporting one of my Rachel Berry dresses and cardi's! I am leaving the Penny Loafers at home though as it's just such a gorgeous day! 

Have a great day lovelies xxxxx
