Weekend Looming

A weekend awaits in the beautiful marina village of Vilamoura on the south coast of Portugal. After a short hop to Faro airport, a fabulous Air Bnb apartment will unfold it’s long sun-kissed arms to my destination- sticker suitcase and vagabond self that is I.
Weekend Looming
Here is a mix of some of my own collections and some Polyvore hits I snapped up which I am hoping will inspire my few packing hours which lie ahead.

Milan 2017: The Gucci Chronicles.

Milans Flagship Gucci store in the Quadrilatero d’Oro proved as immense as I had predicted.

The window display was that of stacked beauty of florals, lace, chiffon and old school flower patterns.

An ‘out with the new, in with the old’ attitude greets you as you step into the flagship haven.

The accessories section did not disappoint with retro glitter and lamé headbands, scarves and top handle totes bags.

Red, White, Blue.

It has nothing to do with July fourth for two reasons: One, I spent way too many fourth of my Julys in the United States, way too much for an Irish lass, and two, I’m simply far too late with this blog to be celebrating such madness. No I am merely scanning through polyvore ( my newfound religion) and there looking back at me is this beautiful linen striped dress. Around that is what I based this weeks fashion collage.
Red, White, Blue.

 

There’s really nothing else too it. I blended red with obvious whites- it being summer and all. I randomly stumbled across this cute mini satchel and wove the rest of the outfit together. What blue, red and whites do you have lying about?

D’Marge showed the effortless effort of these fancy Italian street guys. They have used some of my primary colors mentioned to blend their look of the days. Perfectly imperfect or sprezzatura as D’marge like to put it. I think it works.

I really and truly have no idea who this lady is but she sure as hell is on a mission. I love it. Another classic; crisp, white jumpsuit no less,  broken by blue patent sling backs (good sensible ones at that) and an all important red mini handbag and belt. Clean, simple yet effective.
Red, blue and white: Let that be your humpday ethos tomorrow.

Lace versus Leaf

Whilst lace is pretty, leaf is cool. And what better way to convey your summer wardrobe is through this trend, en vogue leaf print. It definitely rings Dolce and Gabana (for those of you following catwalk and fashion weeks, you should know). Lucky for us, the high street have some cute finds that won’t flog your purse and plastic.

What else do you need? Look at these beauties. All sorts of forest get up. Bottle green, lime green, apple green, teal green. I know I did a leaf print blog several weeks ago but I love so much I thought ‘what the heck’.

Look at these little darlings, a pair of tropical leaf embellishement on the Dolce Vita Kevin Slide flat sandal. $70 on Nordstrom! Slide on down that credit card on withchic.com a cropped top with high waist matching shorts. And guess what? They’re also leaf print!

Stepping out in Pink

 

With a decent shoe under you, you cannot go wrong. With the summer in full swing why not opt for the pretty pink look and match with canary yellow, crisp whites or even the ever-reliable denim.

 

This summer why not let your feet do the talking? Maison Margiela (above) boasts an electric sugar pink with toe spacers yielding deviousness. The ‘Tabi’ boots are all you will need.

What about these cute headed heels by Vivetta at Milan Fashion Week? My sister was funnily enough creeped out when I screenshot them to her. Needless to say she will not be borrowing them when I soon purchase them.

Last but certainly not least. I’m going to be truthful and tell you I haven’t a notion who designed these babies, but I love them. A hint of Christian Laboutin draped around the ankle. A Gucci frill on a masculine, oxford tipped brogue.; certainly a winner. I’d pair it with a marine striped maxi hugging dress and call it my own.

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.
img-set.jpg
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.

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….

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.
