Shiny Moments...

Happy new week and we are so happy to be almost into February! We hope everyone had a good weekend:) 

Here are some of our favourite shiny moments over the past few days:)


Spotted these stunning 'go with everything' sandals in Office during the week:) 

Both colours are divine and perfect for spring/summer outfits


A hike with friends in hailstones up the Dublin mountains over the weekend, the view at the top was well worth the trek:)


And of course the only way to warm up on the way home was to stop in for some hot mocha and coffees... 


Beautiful early morning winter skies as pretty as ever....


Finally enjoying almond croissants on national croissant day today! The beautiful mug was kindly gifted by the fabulous Irish company Love The Mug,  where you will find lots of other fabulous designs in their collection....

We hope you all have a great week ahead!

The Weekend Edit


And just like that, it's Friday again! 

With temperatures taking a serious plunge yesterday (so.cold.), our second edition of the Weekend Edit is styled with cosy layers in mind.



This weekend uniform starts with the staples - Zara skinny jeans and a cosy knit from And Other Stories. I then added a statement coat from River Island to give the whole look a lift. You really can't go wrong with a piece like this and the colour is perfect for brightening up these last days of January!

The cream boots were chosen purely to match the jewel in the crown of this ensemble....the stunning handbag. Pure Italian leather, this quilted beauty is from Primp & Style and it was love at first sight when I spied it on Instagram during the week. At €140, it's a little slice of affordable luxury and again, a piece that will go with everything you own!

And after the longest month ever....it's finally pay day! 
If you plan on treating yourself this weekend (you should!), happy shopping :)

Shiny Moments...

Happy Monday everyone! At last it's getting nearer to the end of January :) We are so looking forward to some nice spring weather (well hopefully anyhow) and longer brighter evenings! 

Here are some of our shiny moments from last week :)


Beautiful scent and fresh flowers, the perfect winter pick me up :) 

This Jo Malone perfume is divine!! Anne


Delighted to snap up another cosy cardi in Pull and Bear for €12.99! I can never resist adding to my stash of warm knits :)



Hot chocolate and glossy magazines make the dark evenings more bearable!




I hadn't been to Sophie's at The Dean for ages, so when it came to choosing a brunch spot, it was an easy choice...




The French toast tasted just as amazing as it looked! Laura



Some of you may have seen that I blogged about this jumper on Friday. Well I only went and convinced myself to buy it mere hours later! 

A few people have asked me about sizing and I'd recommend going up a size if, like me, you like your knitwear a bit roomy! I'm wearing the medium here.


A beautiful pink toned evening sky, after a lovely sunny Sunday :)

We hope you all have a lovely week ahead :)

The Weekend Edit


A big happy Friday everyone! 

We're excited to launch a brand new series on Lustrous.ie today! Every Friday, we'll be styling up an outfit with the weekend in mind. 'The Weekend Edit' will include all things fresh and new on the high street, along with a wishlist item or too. It's all about balance, right?! 

Laura's starting point for today's post was this beautiful funnel neck jumper with fluted sleeves...



Available in the two colours above, this M&S (yes, M&S!) jumper has become somewhat of a bloggers fave over the past few weeks - and we can see why! Wide sleeves are a huge trend at the moment and they add a lovely twist to this simple sweater. Paired with skinny jeans, it makes the perfect statement. Today, I've teamed it with a grey coat from Zara, as I just adore a blush and grey colour combination! 

Office have added a few new colours to their range of ever popular 'Chloe-esque' studded boots and this taupe colour is a must for the brighter months ahead. The cherry on top is this beautiful Gucci Marmont mini cross body bag - simply divine! 

Shop the Look:

Hope you enjoyed our first Weekend Edit and got some inspiration. If you'd like to suggest a theme for upcoming posts, pop us a mail on hello@lustrous.ie. We'd love to hear from you :)

Have a lovely weekend!

Interiors:Spring Colour

Once Christmas has gone by, I'm not really a fan of the winter anymore! Short, damp cold days and being stuck indoors a lot makes me tetchy and longing for a bit of spring warmth! So to lift the spirits a tad, I've looked to some of the interior and homeware stores to seek out a little spring colour and they did not disappoint! 

Here are a few favourites I found:)



Emerald green is a big colour for 2017 and I love the mix of shades here with the yellow
 from H&M home



If your looking for unusual bits and bobs, Carolyn Donnelly @ Dunnes always has some lovely utensils and crockery to add an instant update to the kitchen or dining room. 


New bedding is always a lovely pick me up and these gorgeous florals from Next are just perfect for bright spring days ahead:)



Loving theses aqua tray tables from my favourite shop in our town at the moment, Meadows and Byrne ...the perfect shade to add a pop of colour to any room and also very versatile as they are so light to lift and move around quite easily.



Finally adding a little spring colour with some faux flowers is so easy, Dust have a great selection online to choose from!



Hope you are all having a good week:)

Shiny Moments

Hello all!

Another weekend is coming to an end, but isn't January just flying by? 
We have been keeping busy with closet clear outs, meal planning, lots of walks and just taking time to enjoy the little things :)

Here is what's made our first Shiny Moments round up of the year...


Beautiful winter light...


Cosy movie nights in...


Relaxing with a magazine or two...


Looking ahead to Spring and getting excited to introduce some bright colours again :)



Have a fabulous week ahead!

Outfit Diaries: December

Happy Saturday everyone! 
Well we made it through the first week back to reality and doesn't it make that weekend feeling even sweeter? I'm appreciating every moment of this slow Saturday morning :)

Before launching into a new year of fashion posts, I thought I'd share a quick round up of some outfits from December...


This Zara aviator style jacket was one of my best buys of the season. It's faux fur lined and the cosiest thing ever! I teamed it with my staple faux leather trousers here and a simple blush pink top. 


Another great Zara buy was this little red playsuit (that looks more like a dress). Floaty and so easy to wear, this is a piece that I'll definitely pull out again in the summer. It was a bargain at €30!


On Christmas Day, I thought the Penneys Star Dress would be perfectly festive. I managed to keep  it on for a least 5 hours before changing back into PJs!


Myself and my bestie treated ourselves to a little spa getaway to the fab Ice House Hotel in Mayo (I'll do a full post on that next week) between Christmas and New Year. I packed one of my favourite black dresses to wear to dinner and accessorised with my Mulberry Lily bag.


I got picked this jacket up in the Zara Black Friday sale. It's perfect for walks and I'm obsessed with the furry oversized hood. Speaking of obsession, all of my rose gold dreams came true when I spotted these Nikes online and had to hunt them down immediately!


A little sparkle is essential for New Years Eve, especially when you are in the depths of the dreaded flu! Sequins and red lippie definitely helped me feel better.

Have a great weekend and here's to a fabulous 2017!

Fresh looks for the new year....

Happy 2017 everyone! Hope you all had a good Christmas break, and are ready for a brand new year. As always at the start of January, it's nice to think about a few decor changes in the home, especially when all the lovely festive decorations come down and the house feels bare!

 For now, I'm just gathering some inspirational photos which I think are appealing. 

Hope you enjoy!











I also read in an article recently, if you haven't used something in 6 months either toss it or rehome it! No point in hoarding all those bits and bobs at the back of cupboards!! 

I'm sure I will find loads when I look behind my own:)

Take Care!
