Summer Stripes on 5th Avenue

August 15, 2015


Hey guys,

Hope everyone is off to a great start to their weekend. Any of you who follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (lou1409) know that I’m at Irish Fest in Milwaukee for work for the weekend. 

I was so happy to be able to fit in one more trip before coming home. This year has been full of the best opportunities in every sense of the word – but work has definitely been a highlight. It was my first year out of college and working in marketing – so it was always going to be exciting but the fact that I got the opportunity to travel while doing this made it even better.

Living and working here for the year has given me the opportunity to meet so many people and experience so many things that I probably wouldn’t have had at home – I’ve definitely got a lot more drive now to work harder for what I enjoy. I shot this look before work on Thursday at Rockerfeller Plaza on 5th Avenue. With a busy week and weekend ahead it is hard to find time for everything and 8am is definitely not the most ideal time to be shooting for anyone who enjoys their sleep but how often would you ever see Rockerfeller Plaza this quiet at the start of Augsut?

I love this striped summer dress I bought in Topshop last week. It was a real treat as I have barely allowed myself to look in Topshop since I moved here because it’s just so much more expensive than at home. It will be nice to get back to reasonably priced Topshop’s and Zara’s again.

This weekend is a nice warm up for going home. Being surrounded by Irish people, culture & music is a nice reminder of some of my favourite things about home. The run up to going home is definitely bittersweet but I’m gonna get back to enjoying the moment for now – you can follow my Irish Fest updates over the weekend on Instagram, Snapchat (lou1409) & Twitter.


Have a great weekend,

    The stripes on this dress are so fun! I love navy and orange together.
