Recently I've been wearing these awesome leggings I got marked down to €8.50 in Oasis last week. I was drawn to them like a magpie, I think my wardrobe needs a bit of a shake-up and I want more striking items to incorporate into my more conservative style of dress, a hint of eccentricity makes me happy.

I got the pleated sheer skirt on ebay for £5 including postage and I absolutely love it, even though its a tad on the big side. The length is perfect, I'm actually becoming more found of calve-skimming skirts as opposed to the shorter skimpier minis in my wardobe. And its sheer! I'm loving sheer things at the moment, I don't know why I didn't before, I'm only just realizing the possibilities. I'm actually quite happy with this outfit because everything was bought on sale except for the boots and it doesn't look cheap.

Recently, I've also started voluntary work at the Yeats Society Sligo, its only 3-6 hours a week, a lot of sitting around, but the ladies that are in charge there are lovely and it gets me out of the house. I am a 'meet and greet' person. I also will be beginning at The Model gallery soon too, more sitting around, but in a creative environment.
I'm considering Oxfam too, I got the application form today and it had that typical charity shop smell with a bored, dull woman behind the counter, but I could pick up some bargains there and it'd just be for the summer and most importantly, its all for a good cause!
PS. I just watched Nationwide (an irish around the country type programme) and it featured Miss Courtney's Tearooms, I'm dying for a roadtrip down to the South-West now just to visit this beautiful tea shop! Its my dream to manage somewhere as lovely someday!
