Basically the Same Pair of Jeans 3 Different Ways
When I was shooting the outfits for this blogpost I unintentionally managed to wear the exact same pair of jeans in all three of my outfits…but can you really blame me? Light wash jeans are just so versatile for summer so for today’s post I’m going to show you three different looks I’ve been loving for this late summer weather.
Christmas Time in Paris
Hello my lovelies! I hope you are all doing well and that you’ve all had/are having a lovely Christmas. Right now it’s St Stephen’s Day in Ireland which in our family and in many households is basically like a second Christmas where we eat turkey and ham, drink bottomless glasses of prosecco and eat as many sweets, chocolates and truffles as the eye can see.
As you probably know from my latest vlog, recently I went out to shoot this outfit in Paris before I left the city to return to Ireland for the new year. I know I’ve worn this jumper countless times on my blog but honestly, my love affair with the cashmere sweaters from Hades is never ending. Since 2018 begun I’ve slowly been moving away from fast fashion brands and shopping more for quality pieces that I know are going to last me a lifetime. Honestly I am obsessed with how festive these photos turned out and I can’t wait to share them with you in today’s post.
My Go-To Outfit In Paris Right Now
If you guys have seen my most recent post then you’d know that lately I have been completely and utterly enamoured by the adorable illustrations of Lorraine Sorlet, an independent illustrator here in Paris.
One of my top goals for 2018 when it came to our blog was to make more of an effort to support sustainable fashion brands as well as smaller artists, creators and designers. We live in a world where huge fashion franchises have a monopoly on what we wear and where we shop. This year I wanted to rebel against that. One of my all-time favourite places to do so when I go shopping is of course Family Store UK, a Brighton-based boutique which is just an awesome place to shop for pins, patches, printed matter and apparel created by less well known labels.
Hello my lovelies! Valentine’s Day has just passed and I hope you all had a lovely time, no matter what you did to celebrate. The next big event coming up in the year is of course St Patrick’s Day and as it is my first year away from home, I’m excited to see how the celebrations will go.
I dont know about you but for me personally, the very notion of sporting a festive outfit for Paddy’s day and being clad in so much green is enough to conjure the most darkest of childhood memories. From the frumpy school uniforms we all had to wear growing up in Ireland to the cringey leprechaun costumes that flood retail displays this time of year, there’s something about the thought of the color green that so often feels so off-putting.
But looking festive on a day that celebrates our unique culture all over the world isn’t just about sporting a cringey “kiss me I’m Irish” t-shirt in the Paddy’s Day parade.
Today on La Dame Who Fell to Earth, we’ve teamed up with prettylittlething.com to bring you two looks that are equally festive as they are stylish.
A Little Note on Self Love
Hello my lovelies! Happy Friday to you all. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, love is in the air here in Paris. And in light of that I wanted to share an outfit with you that was not only cute, sweet and elegant, but also the perfect ensemble for a special date with yourself, a loved one, or even an evening out with friends.
As with every year on Valentine’s Day, there comes the over-saturation of soppy couples on social media which often makes it so easy to feel down and out about not having an SO to celebrate with. It’s for this reason that I decided to devote today’s post entirely to self-love. Whether you may be in a relationship or not, self-love is such an important skill that has such a powerful influence over the way we live our lives.
However it’s something so many of us can so easily overlook and neglect to do. But what better time is there to appreciate who we are than on Valentine’s Day, right?
Here are my top tips for self-love as well as a little outfit for you. Let’s start!
Two Outfits, Two Cities
There can be no denying the fact that living between the fashion capital of the world and the colorful streets of Dublin has had a serious influence over my sense of style. While fashion in Paris typically tends to be more classical, revolving around basics pieces and signature items, Dublin street style is a lot more daring and eccentric.
Today I thought I would put together two outfits, one in Dublin and one in Paris to show the contrast between these two unique cities.
Some of My Favourite Places in the City
Despite living in Paris, a city that no doubt is the epicenter of the influence of fashion in the world, having had the first ever spark for my passion for this creative industry ignite within me in Dublin, I can’t help but feel a little nostalgic for the unique character of the city. Especially in terms of fashion. Compared to Paris, Dublin really is a city that is just so alive with colour and us celtic girls really know how to strike the perfect balance between looking chic and braving the elements.
In light of that today I thought I would share with you some of my favourite stores, vintage and contemporary, unique to the city.
