Summer Memories with H&M

May 17, 2018

Hey guys,

I hope your week is going well. The weather and long evenings are definitely making the weeks more fun at the moment. Every so often we even get a glimpse of the sun, and no one knows how to enjoy some sun like us Irish haha.

I’m so excited to be collaborating with H&M again, this time to show you some of my favourite pieces from their summer collection. I always love injecting some colour into my wardrobe in the summer months, and H&M had so many colourful pieces to choose from. I styled up 3 outfits from the collection and took photos in 3 locations that are special to my heart since I was a child.

The first outfit I wore in my uncles Orchards in Tipperary. I spent many a summer here growing up with my sisters and cousins. We came up for a few days every summer to stay with my aunt and uncle when we were really young – we climbed the ‘Devils Bit’ mountain, told horror stories I’ll never forget and just made the best memories. I have had so many happy, fun times here. I am wearing a blue bardot dress (product code: 0615508), with a brown belt tied around my waist (product code: 0516859) . Brown round sunnies (product code: 0657360), a gold chain from H&M (product code: 0648929)  and blue printed slip on sandals (product code: 0582462) . Continue Reading…

Summer Dresses

May 14, 2018

Hi guys,

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I had a lovely chilled one at home with Coop and the family. We did the Darkness into Light walk on Saturday morning and then head to my cousins communion on Sunday. Thankfully the weather was gorgeous so we all got to sit outside and enjoy a barbecue (my favourite).

It really feels like summer has arrived now after a few sunny weekends so I decided to do my latest shopping post on summer dresses. Perfect for holidays, summer occasions or any chance the weather is nice enough to get the legs out!

Hope you like them.

Chat soon,

VIP Style Awards 2018

May 6, 2018

Hi guys,

It’s been over a week since the 2018 VIP Magazine Style Awards – and it only crossed my mind today that I haven’t done a blog post on my outfit on the night. I absolutely loved my dress, it was everything I had imagined. When I heard I was nominated at the start of March I immediately started brainstorming for a dress – my first stop was my Pinterest board of ball gowns (I save dresses here randomly throughout the year, whenever I see nice ones). Then I went to every online shop I know that sells ballgowns – and wow! They are expensive. Anything I saw that I liked was WAY out of my budget!

I knew I was looking for ruffles, tulle, a delicate top but I didn’t know where to find it. I went to the ARC Fashion Show at the end of March with my friend Ellen, and that’s where I saw Caterina Coyne and just fell in love with her designs.

I sent her some of my inspiration dresses, Caterina drew some sketches to match this – we met and then came up with the final design together. I absolutely love it. It’s feminine, fun, edgy and has a gorgeous shape. It was also super comfortable which is important on the night as it is quite a long night. Thank you Caterina!!! Continue Reading…

Blazers for Spring

May 6, 2018

Hi guys,

How is everyone?

It’s finally starting to properly feel like Spring and I love it 🙂 I love being able to leave the house without a coat and blazers are the perfect light layer. I feel blazers always pull together an outfit and can make you feel more dressed up than you are. I have my top 50 picks online here. There is something to suit every style and budget hopefully!

Happy shopping 🙂

Lucy Nagle Cotton Collection

May 1, 2018

Hey guys,

I hope you’re all having a good week. I can’t believe today is May – is it me or did April just FLY by? Between the cruise, Coachella and the style awards I had a busy (and really fun) month, but now I need to settle down and get back to a little bit of normality (it’s a struggle).

I am so happy to see the long, bright evenings creeping in – any signs of summer are more than welcome! I even started packing away my winter wardrobe last week and taking out my summer bits.

These new Lucy Nagle Cotton Collection T-shirts are a lovely addition to my summer wardrobe. If you follow me on social media you’ll know I live in comfy, casual t-shirts paired with jeans and skirts. These new ones that Lucy launched on her website and in Brown Thomas are so soft, flattering and versatile – you can see how differently I’ve styled these 5 different t-shirt styles below (I’ve linked each one below the photo).

This is Lucy’s first collection of t-shirts – and there is 4 styles. She has a mix of round neck, v-neck and cold shoulder tees – so she really has something for every body shape and size (sizes go from XS – L). I wore a mix of sizes XS and S and I would say they are quite generous size wise – I wouldn’t always be an XS. They are all made from natural fabrics- Bamboo, Cotton or Rayon (Wood Pulp) – which explains why they are so soft.

They’re the perfect t-shirts for work, weekends and/or working out. I personally love the length (they are that little bit longer than normal tees so a little bit more flattering and comfortable to wear). Basics like these – that can be worn in so many different ways in every season are worth investing in. As I always say, you have to consider cost per wear 😉

Also, it’s important to mention they wash well (gentle machine wash, cold wash only, inside out) – and are priced at €60.

Check out the different styles I love below and how I’ve styled them – let me know what you think,

Summer Shoes

April 27, 2018

Hi guys,

Hope you’re all well. I’m back with another shopping post for you 🙂

While it might not be warm enough to get the legs out just yet, it is time to get the summery shoes out! Shoes are a nice way to transition an outfit into a Spring/Summer style without freezing! If you are going on holidays later in the summer, I’d recommend buying shoes now too because I always find the nice sandals sell out so fast! Hope you like my top picks.

Happy shopping!

Love,

Lou x
