Spring 2018 FINALLY decided to show it’s face last week (briefly!) and with it came an intense desire to wear nothing but light, floaty summer dresses. I mean think about it…are dresses not THE most comfortable and hassle free items of clothing?! Unlike trousers and skirts, you don’t need to think what to pair them with. Just pop on some sandals or sneakers, add a … Continue reading SS18 Dress Edit
So now that the title’s got you singing the 90’s Mark Morrison classic, let’s talk about the classic trench. Much like florals, there’s nothing too groundbreaking about mac’s for Spring but for me it’s one of those unsung wardrobe heroes I find myself reaching for year after year! Trenchcoats are the perfect transitional piece and are ideal for this time of year when there’s still … Continue reading Return of the Mac
So let me start off by saying that I know this one will divide opinion! For most people white shoes and boots are like marmite…it’s a love or hate situation. Up until not so long ago I was definitely on the hate them side of the fence but they have become my unlikely style heroes. When I was a teenager, white shoes were always associated … Continue reading White hot!
As someone who loves to travel, I love a good city break. Rather than wait all year for a two-week long Summer holiday, I prefer a little and often approach. Short trips as often as I possibly can! For me, city breaks are the ideal way to visit new places. To be honest, I really didn’t know a whole lot about Bruges apart from what … Continue reading City break series: Bruges
In the fickle world of fashion, colour trends come and go; we’ve been seeing lilac challenging millenial pink as the next must-have colour (coincidentally these two colours are a match made in heaven) and already there’s a new pretender on the block. While everyone has been talking about lilac, green has been quietly rising up the ranks in shades from mint to forest as well … Continue reading Green with envy!
Now that we’re a couple of weeks into January I have finally stopped longing for a return to Christmas and am getting so excited for Spring. It’s still deathly dark in the mornings and absolutely freezing (as I type it is actually snowing outside!) but I can almost sense Springs arrival in the air. A new season brings with it new fashion and after layering … Continue reading Top trends for SS18
Happy new year! You can still say that in week 2 of January right?! In all honesty the arrival of a new year quite often fills me with mixed emotions. Rather than waking up on January 1st brimming with enthusiasm for the year ahead and the possibilities it brings, I often feel a weird mix of nostalgia (for the good times the previous year brought), … Continue reading New year, same me!
Christmas is just around the corner (I know right! Where did that year go??!) and the annual shopping frenzy has well and truly begun. Choosing the right gift can be so stressful and I don’t know about you but I think it’s sometimes difficult to find something a little bit different. I went along to a local craft and food fair in Galway last week and … Continue reading ‘Tis the Season to Buy Local!
With temperatures falling rapidly and a distinct chill creeping into the air, longer hemlines are ideal for beating the cold while still looking chic. Midi skirts are a particularly good winter style if you don’t fancy layering up with tights because, let’s face it, the corned beef leg look is nobody’s friend. Sartorially speaking, the pleated midi skirt is bang on the money. Around for … Continue reading Nailing The Pleated Skirt & Oversized Sweater Look
I know what you’re thinking! How is it almost Christmas already? 2017 has absolutely flown by in the blink of an eye and I hope it’s been good to you all! If you don’t think Christmas fashion is the best of the whole year then I’m sorry, we can’t be friends. Now that Halloween is over it is totally acceptable to talk about the C word! … Continue reading Ultimate Christmas Party Edit
