Random: Shopping, Dining, OOTD & More

So much going on these days so I apologize for all the mixed bag posts, but this is the only way I can share at the moment! We're just about to jet off to Ireland in a couple of hours so as you can imagine, I've been busy! Hubby got a job! He starts on Monday! Yikes! So we set out shopping on Wednesday at Westfield to get him some work clothes... I couldn't resist taking a tour through Dior while we were there... I nearly died of gorgeousness overdose!!!

It's official that Mr. Julep has become a Pink Man! Thomas Pink has the best shirts for men ever! And now, many of their styles don't require ironing!!! AMAZING! They are a bit pricey, but so worth it!

After a day's shopping, I treated hubby to a steak dinner at The Meat and Wine Company, which was soooooo good! The steaks were amazing! The service was not that great, but the food was worth a bit of waiting around... Pictured above is a Puzo Rose, which has Absolute Citron, Cranberry Juice, Lime wedges, Elderflower Cordial, Rose Water and Ginger Ale... it was heavenly!

I finally found a cute pair of wedges on a sale rack!!! YAY!!! These are Nine West, super comfy and much cuter than this picture shows... I also found coats, which thrilled me! I've been looking for the perfect coat for 2 weeks and liked nothing. Finally, when I found one, I found two!

This is a random photo of the zen garden situated in the courtyard of our building... I just thought it was pretty.

Yesterday when I woke up, I realized we had no available luggage for our trip... so we set out to buy some. This was my outfit.
Argyle V-Neck Merino Sweater - Uniqlo
Dark Wash Denim Mini - Uniqlo
Grey Tights - H&M
Bag - Esprit
Black Ring - H&M
Boots - UGGS (pictured below)
Cameo Earrings - Dorothy Perkins
We headed to Selfridges and on our way, we stopped here for lunch:


It was great! Kind of like a diner!

I had macaroni & cheese...

with a side of mashed potatoes... YUM!!!


Selfridges had an art exhibit. I wasn't impressed by most of it, but I liked this one. A shark's jaw dripping with magnetic tape... interesting. You know, like the ribbons out of cassette tapes!

Hubs has to do some travel with his new job so we got him a fabulous Tumi suit carrier that folds up into a cabin size rolling case! Fab! I had to get something fab too... it's only fair! So I settled on this Longchamp beauty... it also has a suit bag inside as well as a bag for your shoes! Awesome!


Now we're all packed up and ready to go! I hope you all have fabulous weekends!!! I'll be posting photos of our family weekend in Kilkenny when I get back! xoxo

  2. We drove through Kilkenny on our honeymoon. I'm so jealous! We're dying to go back. We're thinking our two-year anniversary in March might be the perfect time. Have fun!
