What to Wear? Winter Footwear

If you’re anything like me and have all your winter clothing sussed but seem to be at a loss when it comes to winter footwear – then you’ve come to the right place.

This year, I seem to get ready for work no problem. Hair, easy. Makeup, easy. Clothes, easy. However, I end up standing there in my bare feet and think to myself what shoes go with this and why do I not have warmer ones. Everything it my closet seems to be flats, Toms, heels or flip-flops.

Here in Ireland, it’s November and it’s a damn cold November at that. So with all that in mind, I think it’s time to stop shopping for more clothes and start thinking about my poor cold feet.

I’ve been searching through my local stores and online and I’ve found a range of winter footwear that I have on my list for my next shopping trip.

Essie Peach Daiquiri!

essieEssie Peach Daiquiri: €9.99 at http://www.boots.com

This weekend I was heading to a naming ceremony in Dublin. I wore black skinny jeans, black ankle boots and a white and blue stripped jumper. So, to brighten up my nails I choose Peach Daiquiri by Essie. After trying 4 colours from the collection they have quickly become by favourite. They literally last me all week and each weekend I change it up for another colour.

This polish is advertised as a refreshing sweet yet fruity, powerful cocktail – and it is!! It was a perfect polish to brighten up my outfit for spring!

Let me know what colour to try next! 🙂

Essie Love ♥

Sunday – a day of relaxation AND the day before the work weeks begins. This means a new nail colour is in order. Working in an office I like to keep things neutral with my nail colour. So, yesterday I picked up Fiji by Essie. This is a  very opaque, creamy pastel pink polish. I had to apply two coats on top of the base coat to make sure the colour was even throughout. Apply the Essie “all in one base” to ensure it lasts!

Products Used: Essie – all in one base (€10.99 http://www.boots.ie)

         Essie – Fiji (€9.99 http://www.boots.ie)

I’ll keep you updated on how well it holds up during the week 🙂
