October so far...

This month I have been having a lovely time being crafty, catching up on my magazine reading, snuggling with the pup, bargain hunting in my local charity shops, attempting some diy, sewing gifts for my friends and trying out some easy seasonal recipes. I really do love Autumn! Hope you're all having a wonderful weeknd. Modern Milly xx

H&M AW12 I love you...

All images from here.
I shop quite a bit in H&M anyway but when I clapped my eyes on these images for AW12 I was so excited. Love the colours, love the 60's styling....makes me want to go shopping and back-comb my hair! Modern Milly xx

Orla Keily and Uniqlo....

One of my favourite brands is the retro-print-tastic Orla Keily but I find most of her beautiful clothing and homeware is out of my normal price range....Hello collaboration with Uniqlo! There are a number of beautiful printed tunics and tops to choose from at very reasonable prices. The above dresses are a pick of my favourites and priced at just £19.90 each they are such a bargain! Grab one whilst theyre in stock! Happy wknd! Modern Milly xx

Read all about it....

I have always loved magazines. Every month I cant wait to get my hands on a brand new shiny publication so I can devour and absorb every beautifully shot image and cleverly written word. Whether its fashion, home or craft related, I am hooked on my monthly dose of editorial inspiration. Recent additions to my monthly reading list are the beautifully crafted Mollie Makes and its brand new (out today) sister publication The Simple Things. Love, love, love! Modern Milly xx

Primark A/W 12...

I don't know about you but with the weather being so rubbish lately I've been daydreaming about Autumn colours and prints a bit earlier than usual. I always love to see how Primark have styled up their ad campaign images and this AW12 they dont disappoint. Modern Milly xx

Going Green....

One colour which has always been a favourite of mine (ever since I purchased an amazing pea green boucle swing coat from Topshop when I was a student and inherited the nickname 'Bogey' from my lovely housemates. Yes its true!) is the colour GREEN.

Doesn't matter where I shop, my beady fashion eye is always drawn to some sort of shade or print of green. I love it.....and it seems to suit my pale skin and dark hair. (nothing to do with the fact that I am of Irish descendants of course)

I would love to incorporate more of the brighter hues into my wardrobe this season and have been having a little nosey online to see what is available. Find my best buys below....

Green Shirt Dress £17.00 Primark

Green Print Sunglasses £13.00 River Island

Sleeveless Peter Pan Collar Shirt £12.00 River Island

Pencil skirt £14.99 H&M

Diana Scallop Pleated Midi Dress £20.00

Pleated Swing Mac £65.00 Asos

Envelope Purse £24.00 American Apparel at Asos

Bird Print Shell Top £19.99 New Look

Woven Rope Cuff £4.99 New Look

Crochet Top £35.00 and matching Crochet Tulip Skirt £35.00 Asos

What's your favourite colour?

J'adore Paris!

P.S. I know its probably a bit cheesy wearing a 'Bonjour' print jumper actually in Paris but I wouldn't care! :-)

Well hello there Sister Jane!

I recently stumbled across a gorgeous new brand called Sister Jane. They are a Spanish label who are currently available in the UK at Topshop and Asos.

Images taken from here.

It was the zig-zag collar dress (available at Topshop online for £70.00) that originally caught my eye and when I searched for more and came across their website and all of these other little beauties I got really excited. New brand LOVE alert!
