Friday's Fancies: Summer Sunset


So here we are, the last weekend of summer. It's hard to believe that September is almost upon us!
As a last hurrah to sunnier moods, today's look is inspired by the golden orangey hues of a summer sunset. There have been some really pretty ones this year - and as Irish summers go, I must say it was pretty good!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Ad Love...


The DKNY Fall campaign is always one I look forward to and this year it's no different! 
Led by runway queen Cara Delevigne, the campaign captures the brand's city chic essence at various locations around New York. It's smart and sophisticated yet edgy and cool - and Cara makes it all look so effortless. I love these three looks!

Plain White Tee!


                                        

 I've said it lots of times before - I'm all about the simple basics dressed up with great accessories!     A prime example is the plain white t-shirt. An absolute staple in every wardrobe, it works all year round. Keep it cool and casual like Miranda with a colour popping scarf or layer up with cosy knitwear as we transition into Autumn. Don't forget to add a statement bag and killer heels for the ultimate casual chic look!

Friday's Fancies: Autumn Uniform

H&M Pants | Mango Top & Necklace | Zara Clutch & Heels

Happy Friday once again! We made it!

This week Alison has set us a 'Back to School' inspired challenge. When I think 'school', it instantly reminds me of my uniform days. Funnily enough, mine was wine - a colour that I was not a fan of at the time! Fast forward to today and I can't get enough of it - although these gorgeous Zara heels are a lot more fabulous than my wine pleated school skirt!! 

For today's outfit, I've pulled together a luxe casual look based around my ultimate A/W staple - leather pants. My €29.99 pair from H&M saw me through the entire season, and worked for both day and night. I'm looking forward to getting them out again come September!

Have a great weekend!

Bling!


So there I was scrolling through my morning Facebook feed when these gorgeous gems caught stopped me in my tracks! I couldn't believe they were from Oasis. The stunning Goldmine collection comprises a fabulous array of tassels and pearls with everything from chokers, bracelets and cuffs to long chains and elegant earrings. I've got my eye on the orange stoned necklace above, I love the pop of colour!

You can shop the full collection online here
But be quick, it's all Limited Edition and they are sure to sell out fast!

Autumn Ideas...


Rumour has it that we are due some more sunshine around these parts later on this week. It would be nice but I must admit that my mind has raced on to Autumn styling! While I won't break out the boots, tights and knitwear until September, it's nice to start gathering a little inspiration now.

Today it's all about cosy layers, soft knits, casual boots and deliciously dark nail polish.

Is anybody else feeling autumnal yet?

Leopard Love...



Love it or loathe it, leopard is back once again for 2013. I've always said I liked leopard print accessories, particularly against an all black or tan outfit. The gorgeous Chiara from the Blonde Salad is a fan of leopard in all shapes and styles. From chic scarves, clutches and heels to statement trousers and outerwear, she pulls it off with class and style every time. Since spotting her coat in the outfit above, I've been thinking of different ways to incorporate leopard print into my wardrobe and I'm very tempted to give this look a go!

What are your thoughts on leopard print?

Ad Love...


Hi all! 
Just popping with a little more 'Ad Love' to brighten up your Wednesday. I know I probably say this with every new campaign I see, but this one from Longchamp really is my favourite so far!
Coco Rocha towering over the heart of New York city, in a blaze of colour and toting some fabulous arm candy.....it truly is a match made in fashion heaven!

Luxe Leather



When it comes to Autumn fashion, it's all about the vast array of fabrics. From leather and lace to wool and cashmere, the options are endless.Leather has always been a key feature for the season and Reiss do it so well. I especially love the buttery tones running through the new collection! This peplum top and leather skirt have shot straight to the top of my wishlist!

Friday's Fancies: Treat Time


Happy Friday all! Another week has just whizzed by - summer is going too quick!

When Alison's 'treat time' e-mail popped into my inbox earlier this week, I didn't have to think twice about my picks for Friday's Fancies. 

What's more refreshing than a delicious slice of watermelon? Maybe some ice crushed watermelon topped off with a zesty slice of lime! I've bookmarked this recipe to try before summer is out.

Meanwhile here's my citrusy bright watermelon/lime inspired outfit! I love the colour of this beautiful DVF dress. Perfect for showing off a golden summer tan!

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!

Ad Love...


The September issues are on the shelves and the Fall ad campaigns are landing thick and fast! While I'm still holding off on any autumn purchases, it's a nice time to start gathering a little inspiration for the season ahead. I love this shot from the new Joie campaign - soft, feminine and oh so pretty. Models Poppy Delevigne, Julie Restoin Roitfeld and Anouck Lepere make for a winning team in a gorgeous array of textures and fabrics. I can't wait to see the rest of the shoot!

Zara Jeans | Sandro Top | Anya Hindmarch Clutch | Christian Louboutin Heels

Happy Monday all!
I've had a great weekend so far and it's nice to have an extra day off today. 
Here's what I wore for an evening out with the girls on Friday. It was nice to get dressed up and pull out my favourite heels and sparkly clutch. We enjoyed some delicious tapas along with some bubbles and cocktails. It was a perfect start to an otherwise quiet weekend :)

Short Story!


Friday night means cocktail night! In keeping with this week's Friday's Fancies theme, I had a lot of fun styling this look around these adorable Topshop shorts. I'm looking forward to some much needed rest and relaxation this long weekend, kicking off with tapas and cocktails tonight. I've also got a spa voucher sitting pretty on my dressing table since my birthday - this could be the weekend to put it to use! 

Happy Friday all!
