The Savvy Sartorialist is six months old this week and I also reached 5k followers on Instagram! Both are important milestones on my blogging journey so I wanted to write a post reflecting on what I’ve learned in the last six months as well as my tips for anyone thinking of starting a blog. I also wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone … Continue reading The Lessons I’ve Learned Through Blogging!
Hands up if you find packing for holidays stressful?! Booking flights, finding a dreamy Air BnB and researching peak Instagram opportunities are all the easy parts. Between annoying baggage allowances and the fear of under-packing, I always find it difficult to pack for a holiday. I always aim to pack light and only bring versatile essentials that can be worn and styled in different ways, … Continue reading Style Staples: The Holiday Edit
When you think of blazers you might think of school uniforms and stuffy corporate wear but the traditional blazer has been re-imagined this season. A firm favourite with those super chic Parisian gals whose style we all admire, the blazer is the ultimate style staple. Lazy girl glam is most definitely a statement I would use to describe my own day to day style and … Continue reading Style Staples: The Blazer
The Slogan tee is one of this seasons boldest trends; the more attention grabbing and provocative the statement, the better. Developing for a few seasons, wordy tees cropped up everywhere on runways from New York to Paris with many designers using slogans to make strong political statements; think Maria Grazia Chiuri’s “We Should All Be Feminists” tees at Dior and Prabal Gurung’s “The Future is … Continue reading Style Staples: The Slogan Tee

Hello lovelies, So you might have noticed that I’ve been a little quiet here on the blog over the last week or so. I had some family stuff going on so between that and the fact that I just wasn’t feeling it last week, I decided to head home to Galway for a few days much needed R&R. The weather was fabulous and I even … Continue reading Accessories Edit: Statement Earrings
Galway is known for it’s year round festivals, lively arts scene, general amazing banter and was even voted world’s friendliest city by US magazine Travel & Leisure! For any of my readers who may not be familiar with Galway, it is a medieval city located on the Atlantic ocean and is the biggest city in the West of Ireland. Despite living in Dublin for the … Continue reading Insiders Guide to Galway
Hello lovelies, If you are familiar with my insta feed you will notice that 90% of the time I can be found in runners or stylish flats! Once upon a time I was strictly a heels girl but a back injury a couple of years ago means heel wearing has to be kept to a minimum. My luck is in though as flat shoes are … Continue reading Ditch The Heels For Fancy Flats!
Hello lovelies, I hope you are all having a great week and are looking forward to the long Easter weekend. I know I am!! Today, I wanted to talk a little about personal style – what it is and how you discover yours. In an increasingly trend driven environment, where there are now 52 seasons rather than 4, it is important to have a sense … Continue reading Creating Your Personal Style
Hello lovelies, Today I thought I would share something a little different, a little more personal on the blog! Yesterday, I tried a new North African street food restaurant for lunch called Moro Kitchen and besides loving the food, I was struck by the below quote on their wall which is all about our attitude towards change. Change of any kind can be a scary concept … Continue reading Ch-Ch-Changes!
Apparently Spring has finally sprung (she says as wind and rain batter the windows!) and with it has come the desire to ditch the winter woollies in favour of lighter, brighter pieces. As much as colours like black and grey are year round favourites for me, I am really craving bright colours after what feels like a very long winter. And they don’t come much … Continue reading Go Bananas for Yellow
Hello my lovelies! I’ve been kinda quiet over here on the blog for the last week or two. The days just seem to be whizzing by; I’m working in a PR company for a couple of weeks (more about that at a later stage) and this past weekend, I was at a family wedding so I haven’t had a chance to write a post! If … Continue reading 24 Hours In Belfast
Hands up who else finds the variety of different skincare brands and products on the market overwhelming? Who else has spent more money than you care to admit on products that have been nothing short of useless? My answer to both questions was yes…until I got serious about my skincare routine. As a teenager, I had skin as soft as a baby’s bottom and not … Continue reading My Holy Grail Skincare Products
I don’t know about you, but I spend fashion month with my phone literally glued to my hand (no change there I hear you say!) following all the shows and the emerging trends. If I am completely honest though, I generally get more excited about seeing all the street style looks from outside the shows. These women have their own individual styles without slavishly following … Continue reading My Top Trends from LFW
Every once in a while, a trend comes around that makes me question my dedicated following of fashion and tests my open mindedness in the sartorial stakes…wedge heel trainers I’m looking at you! And while I will generally give any trend a go and try to put my own spin on it, there are some that are just met with a sigh. In such cases, … Continue reading Get Waisted
When you think of an ‘IT’ shoe generally images of skyscraper stilettos and statement-making over-the-knee-boots come to mind. If like me though, you dread the thoughts of squeezing your feet into sky-high heels (I am mos def a trainers/ ankle boots kinda gal – must be getting old) then fear not! The shoe of the season is not only super stylish and chic but is also … Continue reading Sole Mates
This season it is all about the statement sleeve! Statement sleeves of all shapes and sizes have been making waves for a while now having dominated the SS17 Fashion Week runways in New York, Paris and Milan. From bishop and bell to trumpet and cut-out, every variation imaginable graced the catwalks of fashion houses like Gucci, Celine and J.W. Anderson. Playful, larger than life sleeves … Continue reading Swoon Worthy Sleeves
“Fashions fade, style is eternal.” – YSL If, like me, you have repetitive strain in your thumb from scrolling through instagram then you will identify with the seemingly endless images of impossibly stylish women. It can all be a bit overwhelming and it can be hard to know the right things to do all the time. But my fashionable friends, achieving that super polished look … Continue reading Look Insanely Stylish in 6 Steps
I don’t know about you but January has me craving some much needed D. Vitamin D…get your mind out of the gutter. If you are planning an escape to the sun and want something more than your typical bucket and spade beach holiday, then look no further than Marrakech. If Marrakech isn’t already on your travel bucket list, add it. Immediately! It is hectic hot … Continue reading Magical Marrakech
Happy Tuesday lovelies! And it’s a sunny one here in Dublin town 🙂 So any of my readers who know me well, know that I am a full blown coffee addict (and self confessed coffee snob!). I literally cannot function until I’ve had that first cup in the morning and I think the quote “first we have the coffee, then we do the things” sums … Continue reading My Top 5 Work-Friendly Coffee Shops in Dublin
