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

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!
You may have noticed that I have been pretty quiet here on the blog over the last couple of weeks…at least I hope you’ve noticed and I’m not just here talking to myself! As some of you may know, I recently relocated from Dublin to Galway after 10 years living in the city and so have been a little distracted with all things move related. … Continue reading Big Life Changes & Unlikely AW Style Heroes
I know what you’re thinking, there’s nothing ground-breaking about faux fur for Autumn Winter! So why am I dedicating a blog post to it, I hear you ask? Well my fellow fash-hun’s forget what you think you know about faux fur because this season’s furs are brighter and bolder than ever before! Traditionally, faux fur conjured up major Cruella de Ville vibes however rocking fur … Continue reading Are You Faux Real?
Hello lovelies, You may have noticed that I have been a little quiet over here on the blog for the past couple of weeks. We have recently moved from Dublin to Galway so have spent the last couple of weeks moving in to our new house and generally just trying to get settled into life in a different city. It was also my 33rd birthday … Continue reading Layering Like A Pro
Gingham was one of those trends that literally just exploded overnight.
