Post-lockdown fashion with Femme Luxe

Fashion

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been putting a lot more effort into my sense of style since lockdown restrictions have lifted. In the last few weeks, I’ve had the pleasure of finally seeing the beautiful faces of my friends and family members and I have to say, I found every possible excuse to get dolled up for the occasion.

Thanks to Femme Luxe Fashion I didn’t have to look too hard to make that possible. As you might have read in my last fashion post about Femme Luxe, it is an influencer-inspired fashion brand that provides budget-friends statement pieces for your wardrobe. 

So whether you’re meeting someone for a friendly coffee or have a date lined up, Femme Luxe has plenty of affordable options that will still make you look glam 🙂

Black Sweet But Psycho Print T-Shirt

RRP: €13,95 €6,95 (51% OFF)

This Black Sweet But Psycho Print T-shirt was unsurprisingly my top pick for my post-lockdown wardrobe! I love a good statement tee, especially when it is as bold (and accurate) as this one. It is available in black and white so you can pretty much mix and match to your heart’s content. I’ve matched it with ripped shorts but also jeans. The good thing about a statement print tee is you can style it however you like! 🙂

White Thigh Split Shirt Mini Dress 

€38,95 €19,95 (49% OFF)

Anyone who knows me would tell you that I love an oversized shirt dress. So much so that in the lead up to my 27th birthday I went around looking for a men’s shirt to wear as a dress with high heels – I know, Carrie Bradshaw was clearly an influence on this fashion choice at one point or another.

Dare I say it, this White Thigh Split Shirt Mini Dress would give Carrie a run for her money. The tie front detail and split on the side really give it a girlie but sexy chic look. If you like to be a bit more colourful, then fear not as it is available in navy and khaki as well. 

Grey Crop Loungewear Set

€45,95 €19,95 (57% OFF)

This Grey Crop Loungewear Set can be dressed up and dressed down, thanks to the skin tight fit and material. It sits so beautifully on the lower half of the body and the elasticated waistband helps give an illusion of an hourglass figure – a girl’s gotta take it where she can! It is quite warm on as well so you don’t have to worry about feeling too cold with a crop top 🙂

Black Satin Cuffed High Waisted Joggers

€40,95 €20,95 (49% OFF)

I have yet to match high heels with a pair of joggers. However, the more I see it on other people, the more the idea is becoming attractive to me. These Black Satin Cuffed High Waisted Joggers are perfect for those who are well versed in creating a glam look with a pair of joggers. They have a high waisted design and a cuffed leg in a luxe satin material – you really can’t go wrong! Cherry on top? They’re available in blush, lilac and stone. Speaking of stone…

Stone Off The Shoulder Knitted Loungewear 

€49,95 €24,95 (51% OFF)

This Stone Off The Shoulder Knitted Loungewear Set is ideal for a laid back look that is low key luxe. It has a gorgeous off the shoulder long sleeved crop top with matching shorts. I love the material and overall comfort that comes with this look. It is also available in lilac and blue.

So there you have it, my recent fashion picks from Femme Luxe Fashion. Let me know which of these looks is your fave! 🙂

Tandem skydive in aid of SOSAD Ireland

lifestyle

The last few months have been rough for all of us. Between trying to navigate life through a global pandemic, seeing a worldwide outcry for racial equality as well as any other hardships we’ve been forced to endure since, it can be hard at times to know what to do to help each other as well as ourselves. For that reason I’ve decided to do a charity skydive for SOSAD (Save Our Sons And Daughters) Ireland in hopes of raising awareness around the issue of mental health.

SOSAD Ireland is a registered charity based in Drogheda that helps improve the lives of people affected by depression and suicide. It’s a charity very close to my heart so I wanted to give something to a team that works tirelessly to help keep our minds happy and healthy.

I created an everydayhero page last Friday afternoon to raise funds for the tandem skydive and the last couple of days has really opened my eyes to the sort of support network I have built through my blog, writing and connecting with people in the media space in Ireland.

I’m genuinely overwhelmed by all the positivity and support so far and still gobsmacked by the fact that we hit my fundraising goal in just two days! Words cannot describe how grateful I am to everyone who has donated or even spared a thought for this initiative.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you all. 

Although I have hit my fundraising target, I will continue to fundraise for SOSAD until the week before my parachute jump on August 23rd so if you can donate or share my everydayhero page, I’d greatly appreciate it. 

In these uncertain times, I think the services provided by SOSAD are more important than ever before and the more awareness that is brought to this cause, the higher chances that the people who require SOSAD services will get the help that they need.

Thanks again to everyone in advance and I hope you’re all staying safe x

    If you're wondering why I've published this blog post under the category lifestyle rather than race, it is because I believe that people should have continuous conversations about race and racial discrimination.
