A look back at the pieces I’ve been loving and things that I’ve been wearing the most the past two months. March and on into April the weather is so bipolar. Dressing for that kind of weather is a nightmare. For this reason i haven’t been too wildly exciting on the style front day to day. In saying that i had a family wedding and a special blog collab that i had some really pretty pieces to wear. I still have my favourites though and it’s those that i have been living in. These posts are so fun to do. To look back through my Instagram to see the stand out pieces and go to looks of late. Always handy to look back on and remind myself of things that worked and looks i’d like to try again. Without further adieu my Spring fashion favourites. What where yours?
Kicking things off with one of the nicest things i have ever worn. If not THE nicest. I was struggling to find an outfit for a family wedding at the start of March. In my head i had an idea of what i wanted but that was proving to hinder the process more than help with it. I knew i wanted a statement skirt and was really liking the overlay style that had been popping up. It was love at first sight when i scrolled down to see this absolute beaut on ASOS. It was in the Plus section which i didn’t even know Coast did so i was thrilled. I had so many compliments on this look and absolutely loved twirling the night away. Did i mention it had pockets to? Things like this , especially from Coast are real investment pieces that can be pulled out for occasions. They also hold their value quite well due to the quality so could be sold on which is ideal if you hate seeing pieces just hanging in your wardrobe.
I started my love affair with neckerchiefs last Summer with the classic paisley style bandannas. Literally could not get enough. My collection grew steadily with all my favourite colours included. I am happy to continue you on with this look by nabbing this little checkered print number. Gingham is huge at the moment and only set to go one way as the season moves on. This little scarf was €3 in Penneys and looked really cool against the red of my top. That was under bargain basic from Penneys. Printed scarves are a really affordable way of adding a little something to a look and updating some older pieces. I spoke before about how easy and versatile styling scarves can be here if you want to take a further look. Another way i have been loving this checkered number is tied onto my bags. It really adds a pop and looks really cool.

After what felt like a lifetime these babies finally landed on Irish soil in . I have counted three similar pairs that i already own. Three! But i still need these to wear with little gingham dresses and a leather jacket as you can see below. So much detail for a mere €17 too. You will also see these western-esque booties in another look below. More of a wearable day to day look that is appropriate for Irish weather. They add a little something to the most basic cropped jean. I cut my pair myself so they sat at the length i wanted them.

I got this shirt for an event a couple of weeks ago that sadly i couldn’t attend last minute. I had other plans for styling this Boohoo number but it is a very handy staple to add to my wardrobe. Never met a stripe i didn’t like even if i do look i work in TGI’s. After looking for the link to share i seen it’s only €13 now which is so affordable for a staple piece. I like shirts mixed in with everyday tougher pieces but this would be a cool work shirt too to inject some colour and style into your everyday work wardrobe. This might be a good option for those who aren’t big ‘Summer’ dresses. Still light and fresh though.
Lost Ink Stripe Dress
Finally a very worthy opponent for the Coast Skirt was this pleated pleasure. A very close second place. I styled this piece for the soft launch of the Littlewoods Ireland Curve section. The brief i had was to style up looks featuring this Summers key trends. Pleats , colour blocking and confident stripes and well this dress had all three in one. It’s from a brand i really like – Lost Ink. A dress that was just made for twirling. I loved the fit and how it made me feel while i wore it. The colour combo in the pattern worked really well together. It was fresh and bold but not too in your face. I decided to clash some red accessories against the dress. Not sure how , but i now love mules. This pair from V By Very where exactly what i had in mind and i thought they worked well together. I feel this dress would be ideal for any Summer occasion. You can read the post i did on the launch and see the rest of the looks i chose here.
That’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed looking back as much as i did. Stay tuned for June/July
