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!
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!
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
Let’s face it, corduroy has a rep as one of the most unsexy fabrics of all time. Even the name sounds uptight and stuffy. Corduroy is basically a form of ridged velvet but while velvet got invited to all the best parties in town, cord became the uniform of choice for professors and geography teachers alike. However, given the resurgence in popularity of velvet, it … Continue reading Striking The Right Cord
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
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
