Festival Fashion

August 16, 2018

Hi guys,

My latest shopping post is my second festival fashion blog post of the summer but a couple of you have messaged me asking to do another one as a guide for Electric Picnic. Festival fashion is my favourite – it’s the one time you can really go all out and have a lot of fun with what you’re wearing. Here are all my favourite pieces online at the moment for festival wear. I hope you find something you like and have a ball if you are heading to EP!

Catch up soon,

Winter Workwear

August 14, 2018

Hi guys,

I remember from my Tourism Ireland days how hard workwear shopping was. I would spend so much time and money trying to find pieces that were office appropriate, comfortable and still a little stylish. Not an easy task.

It’s also not the funnest thing to spend your hard earned cash on. I’ve found some really reasonable pieces online, ones that are easy to mix and match (which is SO important).

If you invest in a few pieces from each section I’ve highlighted below you should have a workwear wardrobe that will turn into about 50 different outfits. Nobody wants to be spending their early mornings outfit planning so I suggest sticking to the same colour palette (with the odd pop of colour, of course) that way it’s easy to co-ordinate no matter what you decide to put on while you are still half asleep.

I did a video with Laura from StyleSavvy.ie back in June talking all about Summer Workwear and some tips for putting your workwear wardrobe together – click here to watch, we’re hoping to do another one soon for winter workwear, let me know if you’d like to see that,

Anyway I hope you find this post helpful,

Happy shopping,

Louise xx

Step into the new season: A/W Shoes

August 7, 2018

Hi guys,

While we are still weeks away from Autumn/ Winter – that hasn’t stopped all the new stuff hitting the shops, and judging from what I’ve seen they are selling fast. We still have a bit of time before we have to consider new-season coats and jumpers, but it is no harm getting ahead with new season shoes. In this blog post I’m going to briefly go through all the A/W shoe trends and show you guys my favourite online at the moment 🙂

Autumn/Winter 2018 is primarily about statement shoes: expect to see lots of bows, cowboy boots and brown (which is the new black!). Animal print is a massive trend across the board this coming season and there are lots of great shoes in animal print. Some of you may be happy or annoyed to hear that ‘Dad’ trainers are not going anywhere and are still a major trend. I wore my white ones a lot this summer so glad they can carry me into next season. A new style of heel to look out for is ones with square pointed toes- not sure about these yet but we’ll see!

I hope you find these trend led blog posts helpful- let me know if you want to see more of them!

Chat soon,

50 Going Out Tops

August 3, 2018

Hi guys,

Anyone else running out of summer dresses at this stage? I have been on the hunt for some new going out tops which are my go-to going out look for Autumn. It is nice to get a few in your wardrobe ahead of the new season. Animal print is a big trend this coming season and you will see a few animal print pieces in this edit (and lots of it on the high street!). There are some fab shirts included as well which are such verstaile pieces to have in your wardrobe as they can be easily dressed up or down. I also love having a few good camis that can be worn as a top or worn under shirts and jumpers when it gets colder for layering.

Hope you see something you like and happy shopping 🙂

Chat soon,

Loving Leopard

August 2, 2018

Hi guys,

This blog post is all about leopard print! The Autumn/Winter 2018 runways were filled with animal print so expect to see a lot of leopard print this coming season. If you want to get ahead of the trend but not sure how to style it then keep reading 🙂

Leopard print goes with so many colours and fabrics and can easily be dressed up or down. A blogger that I think wears leopard print so well is called @thefashionbugblog (worth a follow, I love her style) and she described leopard print as a neutral! While many of us aren’t that brave, I’m going to include some pictures (all from Pinterest) of the different ways you can wear leopard print.

Maldives Round-Up

July 31, 2018

Hi guys,

As you may have seen from my social media spamming, I’m just back from an amazing trip to the Maldives. We were there for 6 days in total and it honestly felt like a dream the whole time we were there, and now that were back too. It’s literally heaven on earth – the bluest waters I’ve ever seen, the most relaxing resorts I’ve ever been to and the nicest people/food/ hotels I’ve ever come across.

We were lucky to be there during the first ever Baa Atoll Summer Festival this year which added to it even more. The first resort we stayed in, Finolhu, as well as the second resort, Amilla Fushi, were both involved in it as well as fellow Baa Atoll resorts Soneva Fushi, Four Seasons, Dusit Thani and Vakkarau Maldives. It is essentially a food festival that runs across a number of the resorts in that region from 20 July – 3 August. Transportation can be organised by the participating resorts for those wishing to repeat their experience in a specific resort – which would allow you to see even more of the beautiful Maldives.

We got to try out the menu at Kanusan in Finolhu and at Feeling Koi in Amilla Fushi and it meant we got a real taste for Maldivian food. They do a set menu with little tasters from the menu for a set price (but you actually get a lot more food than you would normally get for that price) so it’s brilliant! For more info check out the festival website here – I imagine it will be even bigger and better next year.

I thought I would do this blog post to round up my outfits on the trip and also to compile the different blogs and vlogs I did so you have all the info in one place if you need it.  Continue Reading…
