The Emerald Lass

You don’t need to know me too well to know that I’m a bit of a girly girl. That means I’m more likely to be found in a frilly dress or tulle skirt than anything else.

I also wouldn’t be The Emerald lass if I wasn’t all about my greens. No, not the ones on my dinner plate.😬 I love almost every shade of green there is out there but Emerald remains my fave. Such a rich and vibrant shade, what a gem!

Summer may be packing up its bags but that’s not about to stop me from going for gold, (well, green) in this Topshop wrap dress. I love the lady-like appeal of dresses. In a wrap dress, you can’t be anything short of a lady. I’m not usually one to favor low necklines so this was a little out of my comfort zone. But I love that it’s low but not revealing and I hope I still managed to pull off a classy, demure look whilst adding a bit of sass.If you’re worried about being weather appropriate, throw on a pair of tights or fishnets, add a pretty cardigan or a blazer and Bob’s your uncle!😀 To compliment the dress, I paired it with my pink ASOS pumps and added my green fur box bag from Mango.

What I wore last summer 

We’ve all been there. Worn that beautiful occasion dress and perhaps it was even a hit on your Instagram feed.

Wedding season is here and that only means one thing; you need outfits to stand out in! Continue reading What I wore last summer 

Summer vibes

imageIn a recent conversation with someone, the most talked about topic in England came up. No, I’m not referring to Brexit, but rather the weather. 😁 (I’m sure you all have your opinions on Brexit and the aftermath but we’ll leave the politics out for today.) According to this friend,  for him, summer officially starts once Wimbledon begins. Wimbledon is now in full swing so I say…let’s get this (summer) party started. Continue reading Summer vibes

Happy St Patrick’s Day

IMG_3704 Almost 5 million people live in Ireland. But about 70 million trace their roots back to it. It’s meant to be one of the top 10 countries to grow up in. It’s the birthplace of 24 Olympic medallists, 14 Oscar winners and 9 nobel laureates and perhaps the best goalkeeper in the world(all hail Shay Given!) . If you’ve been following me for a while, you may already know that the name, “Emerald Lass” was borne out of my love and connection with the colour green and with the nations of Nigeria and Ireland.  Continue reading Happy St Patrick’s Day
