Plan a concert outfit with me

Happy Saturday, this was meant to go up yesterday but I had a busy day and didn’t find the time to write it and I also didn’t want to rush it so I gave myself an extra few hours to write it! As you may or may not know I love going to concerts, I’m literally always at them and I always want to wear something different to them all so today I’ll be sharing with you how I plan my concert outfits.

Normally I don’t plan them till about 1/2 weeks before the concert so that they are new in shops and stuff, sometimes I’m literally only walking around getting things the day before the concert but normally it depends on the concert because I have ideas for different concert like Ed Sheeran I went to him in May and I knew I wanted to wear a jumpsuit to it so it was just a matter of finding a jumpsuit I liked, also there is no harm is planning ahead if you have your tickets and you are just shopping around and you see a nice top on sale or a skirt you could always get it and save it up for the concert and then closer to the time find something to go with it, but anyways here’s step by step how I do it!

First thing I normally do is go to Instagram & Pinterest for inspiration using these two platforms normally gives me an idea of what kind of look I’m going for and the kind of things I want to look out for online or when I’m shopping, looking for inspiration is the best thing you can do because although you mightn’t wear what you’ve found it might give you an idea for something completely different. Also at concerts you can literally go wild with your outfit I think the more unique the better!

Once I kind of have some idea of what I want to wear I usually look in my local H&M and Primark for the clothes I want but if they don’t have anything normally I go onto boohoo.com or prettylittlething.com and search for the clothes and I always find something weather it be what I was looking for or something completely different. Shopping around definitely helps inspire you too because if you see something new maybe you’ll want to wear that and match it with something other than what you’ve planned in your head.

Then when I have the bits I want obviously I buy them, try them all together and see if there is anything I want to change, if so I just do it all again, look for something new to go with it and keep doing it till I find the perfect outfit for me!

Here’s a few tips:

– always be open to different ideas, just because you’ve one idea in your head doesn’t mean you shouldn’t think of other possible looks, if you go into a shop and they don’t have what you want and you see some really nice clothes instead of sticking to what you originally wanted think of ways you could style the clothes you did find in the shop.

– for me I think it’s better to have your outfit all set before the concert, that’s why it’s important to try it all on together before hand to make sure you like so on the day of the concert you aren’t running around trying to change it and find something new to wear, I really think this is important, it definitely is for me because all concerts I go to are in Dublin and I live like one and half / two hours away so on concert days I need to be really to go and hope on the bus/train to get there on time.

– don’t be afraid to be bold, concerts are literally the happiest place on earth, it’s where a couple hundred/thousands people who all love the same music come to have the time of their lives, and I think a concert is the only place you can really be bold and wear whatever you want to wear because no one judges, they all just came to listen to music not judge people.

Have you any upcoming concerts you are going to or would like to go to? Let me know in the comments
I’m hoping I’ll be going to Why Don’t We in October, then I’ve Nicki Minaj, Shawn Mendes & The Vamps next March, April & May and I’m so excited!!

Taylor Swift

Happy Thursday, i’ve been really busy and only got to write this really late last night soo yeah.

Last Saturday i went to Taylor Swift’s second Croke Park show which was also her 13th show on her stadium tour. First of all it was amazing!!! Honestly when i went to Ed Sheeran i didn’t think anyone could do as amazing as he did but Taylor surely did! Everything about the concert was amazing, her outfits, the set up, everything!! It honestly did show how much time and effort she put into the making of the shows, from the different acts she did, outfit change to stage change they all looked so creative and thought out. My favourite part of the show was her endurance it was the best! and my favourite song was the style/love story/you belong with me medley because they are literally my favourite songs ever. Along with Taylor being amazing so was the crowd, honestly love the happy atmosphere at concerts, can’t imagine how great it is standing on that stage looking at 80,000 people singing and dancing to your songs, Taylor literary didnt stop smiling from the second she came on stage till the very last second on the stage. Also as you walk into the concert they handed out wristbands that were actually set up to light up the colours of her stage and go off at the same time it honeslty looked so good and it was actually an amazing idea. There isnt a bad thing anyone can say about it honestly it was just so prefect and I don’t anyone can actually top it! If you are going to see her you should so look forward to it and if you are debating if you should go or not, 100% go, you wont regret it i promise!

Outfit!

Jumper & skirt & bra top – hm

Shoes & bag & sunglasses- Primark

This Is Ireland – Waterford

First post of my This Is Ireland series, I started in Waterford and i didn’t get that much done because i literally only decided to go that morning and didnt have it planned at all and i just wanted to jump straight into it so i will be re-doing Waterford and spending more time planning and doing things.

Where I did go;

– Tramore Beach.

– Latcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens.

– Waterford City.

LATCADIO HEARN JAPANSESE GARDENS

These Japanese Gardens have a unique story behind them, they reflect elements of gardening traditions of the countries and cultures traversed by Lafcadio Hearn during his varied life. (Patrick) Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904) was a gifted writer and first became famous when he moved to Japan and also changed his name to Koizumi Yokumo, the gardens follow his journey from Greece to Ireland then to America and the gardens reflects this in design, choice of plants and particularly in visage of rocks. ” In order to comprehend the beauty of a japanese garden, it is necessary to understand – or at least to learn to understand the beauty of stones” – Hearn. The idea for the gardens came about in 2012 when his great-grandson visited T for the summer, and it was opened in 2015. Each garden has a story behind it about a period of his life, starting with The Victorian Garden which represents his childhood summers in Tramore, which he loved so much.

Garden’s 

  1. Victorian Garden
  2. Transition Garden
  3. The American Journey
  4. The Greek Garden
  5. Arrival in Japan
  6. The Stream Garden
  7. Woodlands
  8. The Garden Of Peace & Harmony
  9. The Living God
  10. Journey’s End

along with 10 gardens there is two little games for kids, with finding different fairy doors all around the gardens and another with another sheet of different things to find around the gardens.

opening hours: 10:00a.m. – 5:00p.m.

prices: adult – €5, child (under 12) – FREE.

guided tour (45min) €7.50 per person (4 adults max)

School Tours (all ages) €3.00 per child.

you can also get passes and become an annual friend all the information is on their website: lafcadiohearngardens.com

TRAMORE BEACH 

As soon as we finished in the Japanese gardens we headed to the beach, we didn’t do much just a walk along the beach, some arcade games, little bit in the fun fair and then some food.

For those of you who don’t know about Tramore it is located in Waterford City, Ireland which I think is about 20/30 minutes from the city, you can also get public transport to and from the beach. It has a lovely big beach, a fun fair, one or two shops, food places and a donut bar, along with two arcades. It is also literally every irish family’s tradition every year in the summer when you go to Tramore you get a take away in Dooley’s which is without a doubt the most amazing place ever!!!

WATERFORD CITY

Waterford is about two hours from Dublin and you can get bus or train to and from Waterford. We just went for a bit of shopping in the City and also were going to go to the Waterford Castle but it was closed for a private event so we couldn’t. Two little facts about Waterford, it is one of Ireland’s oldest towns, founded by the Vikings they called it weather fjord.

OTHER THINGS TO DO IN WATERFORD

  • Waterford Museum Of Treasures
  • Reginald’s Tower
  • Waterford Castle
  • Waterford Viking Triangle
  • House Of Waterford Crystal
  • Cathedral Of Most Holy Trinity
  • Greyfriars Municipal Gallery
  • Ballyback Castle
  • Geneva Barracks

I will be going back to do more at some point but any questions let me know! that’s it for Waterford… Kildare is next!
