Outfit of The Day & Coffee in The Mountains

I have a weakness for spotty clothes. Basically whenever I see any item featuring polka dots I have to buy it.

I got a new spotty skirt recently from my favourite boutique in Belfast, Liberty Blue. I adore this shop but the only marginally negative thing I'll say about it is that they have the mirrors outside the changing rooms meaning that if you want to see how something looks you have to come out of the safe cocoon of your cubicle for everyone to see.

The sales assistant always comes over to give advice which is nice and I get why they do it because it's their job to sell, but it always makes me feel a bit shy. Anyway, when I tried this skirt on the girl who was working that day (who was absolutely lovely) told me it was nice in a Minnie Mouse kind of way. I don't know if that selling technique would have worked on the average bear, but luckily for her I view Minnie Mouse as a kind of style icon and headed straight to that till.

Skirt -Liberty Blue, Top & Shoes - H&M

Bit of garden scenery there for a change! I promise we do try to look after it, even if these pictures make it look like I'm standing in an ill maintained jungle.

My make up for the day :

The lipstick I'm wearing is Revlon, Pink in the Afternoon which, interesting fact here, is the lipstick that Holly Golightly wears in Breakfast at Tiffany's. (And is completely why I bought it) If anyone wants a full make up list let me know and I can type one up.

We weren't too sure what to do with our day, so we headed out for lunch in a coffee shop at the bottom of a mountain. As you do!

This was the view from the car park :

Really pretty if you ignore the ominous looking clouds!

The coffee shop was located in a little courtyard:

After our lunch we went for a wander around the nearby pond:

It's the secret garden! And I have no idea what's with the abandoned BBQ!?
And then we headed home cause it looked like it was about to rain! Summer in Northern Ireland, people! Let me know in the comments if you got up to anything exciting at the weekend!


  1. That skirt is so pretty! You've got your halloween costume sorted now too - you can go as ghost minnie mouse (fabulous idea I know ;))
    It looks so pretty there - I could do with that coffee right now.

    1. Emmm, that's an amazing idea! Currently trying to persuade my boyfriend to go as Mickey...If you ever come to visit Northern Ireland I'll show you round all the mountains :)

    2. Also look what I just found - https://www.etsy.com/listing/198315948/glow-in-the-dark-ghost-minnie-mouse-ears. I feel like this is meant to happen.

  2. Your outfit was adorable and I love the idea of going on a walk around a cute, little pond! I've never been to Ireland, but it looks absolutely gorgeous!

    1. You should visit, it's so scenic! And I've got tons of advice about where you could go! Thanks for reading :) <3 xx

  3. That place looks lovely! I also adore what you're wearing - i've lost count on how many polka dot things I own. Whenever I go shopping I can't resist a cute little polka dot dress/skirt/top x
