OOTW in Cavan

This weekend my boyfriend and I celebrated our first anniversary together (collective awww hehe) and Will treated me to the weekend in in Farnham Estate in Cavan.  The hotel itself is gorgeous.  It's in the middle of nowhere so it's peaceful and quiet and has a golf course for any golf fans out there.  The hotel has also won numerous awards for its spa.  We mainly spent time in the indoor and outdoor infinity pool which was so relaxing and in their different steam rooms.  If anyone is looking for a rosemantic get away with the other half or a a couple of days to treat your friends or your mother, I would definitely recommend this place.

I took some pictures of what I wore while I was down there to share with you ladies :)

This is what I wore for the trip down.  Suit jacket I got in Oxfam on George's Street in Dublin for €10.  Its a Next blazer and its about 2 sizes too small, so I won't be fastening it any time soon, but it looks really nice left open.  Jeans I got about 4 years ago in Topshop for about €60, t-shirt I got from Old Navy years ago for about $5, brown boots I got in a small shop in Spain for €20, belt is purple with gold studs I got in Penneys last week for €2 and the bag is Lucky Brand I got in Macys about 3 years ago for around $150.

After swimming and working up an appetite it was time for dinner (which was yum!).  Dress is Lucky Brand I got in Woodbury Commons Outlets outside New York for $69, sandals I got in Spain for €20, brown leather and silver bracelet is also from Spain for €20, earrings I got in Austria a couple of years ago for about €5 and handbag is Lucky Brand from Macys for about $90.

Forever 21 can be very hit and miss when it comes to their clothes.  Something about this dress caught my eye, even though I wasn't sure if I liked it or not, but when I tried it on I loved it.  The material is so comfy and soft and I love the neck-line and the pockets too.  Plus it was on sale for €13.95.  Shoes I got about 2 years ago in Banbridge just outside Newry for £15.  Found them recently at the back of my wardrobe and thought they would be perfect with the dress.  I'm on a hunt for nude shoes with a 2 inch heel if anyone knows of any?

Thanks for reading
