Is it safe to safe it’s finally summer here in Ireland? Well even if the forecast peeks two days of sunshine ahead,  I’m going with it. Here’s the ultimate summer fashion blog.

Think Special K, 90’s TV advert, swimming pool in back yard of condo. Red full swimming togs and a fancy big sunhat. Yep, that’s my inspiration for the above collage. Ladies please, if you don’t have a sunhat, for the love of God get one. Make a statement with contours or striped in strong primary colors or go straw/ nude for a safe bet. I bought a beautiful nude one on the streets of Florence almost five years ago and it’s as good as new.
Grab a towel and sunscreen and go hand out int he back garden if you’ve no waves nearby. The next 48 hours are hopeful….

Blouse and Green

Although I tend not to post too many of theses, but here is my latest collage on a lookalike. The look on the left is by Gucci featuring a swing below knee skirt, white pussy-bow blouse, transparent, wedged sandals and there all-too-recognisable chain bag. I’m feeling the love from the color green.

A short ‘n’ sweet fashion blog this week folks but I’m singing off as it’s our Bank Holiday weekend and I’m too to Brandon Point in West Kerry to spread my summer style: You should too.

Maxi Dress: Alert!

You simply cannot go wrong. They are adorable with all sorts of foot wear. You can get away with runners, All Stars, wedges, flipflops, pumps or dressy heels. The maxi is uber versatile. Why not embrace it?

BALMAIN
Maxi Dress with Cut-Out Shoulders
GBP 1,087.00

 

How could I sign off without including this beauty from Balmain? A pale blue viscose beauty awaits to be stepped in to. Ideal for a summer wedding guest or while on holiday to the continent? They advise to match with a pop colour shoulder bag. I couldn’t agree more. How about a fun hand clutch . I have to suggest the below….

Well have fun maxi dress shopping this weekend. I am pulling out my old ghosts this weekend. The weather certainly beckons!

Zoe Kravitz- a quiet icon.

Zoe Kravitz- a quiet icon.

 

Hipster, elegance, class and attitude. Not to forget, a side helping of inherited fame. Kravitz seems to ooze effortless grunge and style.

Think boho chic, summer festival style. Dreads, leather, doc Martin’s and funk. Kravitz has it nailed. Having watched the entire series of Big Little Lies in one night I was Zoe-ified. Playing the cool, step-mom, doing school drop offs in kimono’s and denim pants, I was officially a follower.

Rainy Days

Rainy Days

 

So we don’t necessarily mind if it rains in Ireland, right? Not if the temperatures are up and spirits to boot. Why not put your best foot forward and rig yourself out in on of these bright and smashing rain coats?

Topshop Metallic Rain Coat.

Here are a few of my selected favourite rain macs on the high streets this week. I just love this metallic  longline mac from Topshop. It’s now only 48 quid reduced from almost 70!
TS11M07LSLV_Zoom_F_1.jpg

So embrace those rainy early summer days and get your fun macs on. With a fancy umbrella in hand, go dance in the rain.

Ruffles; love ’em or hate ’em?

Asos Ruffle Top

It’s a love hate relationship I have with ruffles right now. It seems it’s on every store front, on every shop corner on every current fashion magazine. I just can’t seem to make up my mind.

Zara_ruffleblouse-1280x1923.jpg

Primark Ruffle Top €13

I think they can at times, add feminine class but must be paired with the correct ensemble. Steer clear of any gaudy jewellery. In fact, it needs little to none. Same applies for milk-maid tops. A small pearled earring would do the trick.

 

010913-CWL-bold-ruffles-400_1.jpg

Left to Right: Gucci, Chloe, Balenciaga, Givenchy.

In order of the above I love, hate, love, hate it. Why? I think there is a fine line between tacky and classy. Be warned!

Rochas, SS ’14

Interestingly enough, the above display was put on at Paris Fashion Week SS 2014! Fashion really does come in circles.

Tales in Black and White

Black; a forever classic.
White; chic.
Merge the two and you get a burst of everything.
Black & White
I put together a collage of some fun and chic black and white mixes.  You may get called a walking zebra but at least you are a stylish one. Check out this cute shirt from Cos; a non bank-breaker, ladies!

Stripped Rib Jumper

What do you think of this white on white? I never thought it would work but looks like this black belt has done the trick.

Buttoned Culottes 39.95€

 

What a stunning pair of white palazzos (below). I love the high waist with button-defined waist line. How flattering with the slash cut turtleneck!

Weekend Diaries

So can someone please explain to me why this weekend went by Concord-fast? What is with that. And Monday will be a drag. So I’m going to preserve what little time I have here and enjoy my Sunday drippings with some fashion fixes.
Below, I have put together a mix of some cute pastel sleepwear. I just love silky slips, don’t you?
I put together this collage below of some fun and funky bright colours. Mustard has seriously been on my radar for the past couple of weeks. I’ve paired it with bold black to take one in to a nice chic Sunday evening. (Just in case you had some last minute dates or nightcaps to attend)

Sweatshirt Dress with Sleeve Pleats

I am just in LOVE with the new COS Selection. I cannot seem to get enough of their loose, lighty pastel and neutral shades. Grant it it’s not ideal weather right now but give it time and soon you will be dusting off your favourite sandals from the bottom of your attic trunk. Here are a few of my picks from the current store stock.

Layered Wrap-over Blazer

I am all over the floral prints these days especially when it come to a good trouser suit. With the shadows of St. Patrick’s Day lingering still what’s wrong with a good green? Echo the saint with this stunning 2 piece.

Tailored Jacquard Coat and Pants.

 

Let’s bear in mind that there is still snow in forecast this weekend so why not treat yourself to this beautiful padded quilt jacket. Perfect for layering your favourite cashmere cardi under or teddy bear coat over. My name’s on that I one!

Francoise Hardy in Black & White

ecde9a6ccfe7d4b7b0f830860abf1cc7.jpg

Francoise Hardy

From the 9th arrondissement in Paris did this trendy young one emerge in 1944. Born for the polo neck and head scarves was she.

images-4.jpg

A long time inspiration for Paco Rabanne, Isabel Marant and the modern Alexa Chung, her style is super, effortless and trendy as.

Packing for my trip to Morocco tomorrow, I’m sneaking some inspo from her portfolio. What’s your favourite look?
