Home From Abroad
It’s been two years since I last saw a summer in Ireland and now that I’m back, I couldn’t feel happier to be home.
As much as I love Paris, I’m pretty happy that I haven’t spent much of August in it. There’s nothing quite like escaping to the countryside, especially when that countryside is the place where you grew up.
One of the places on the top of my list to revisit when I was back in Ireland was Glendalough which is an enchanting lake and ruined monastery located not too far away from Dublin. I made a video there last Autumn that you can check out here but otherwise the photos I took this time are pretty spectacular too!
Basically the Same Pair of Jeans 3 Different Ways
When I was shooting the outfits for this blogpost I unintentionally managed to wear the exact same pair of jeans in all three of my outfits…but can you really blame me? Light wash jeans are just so versatile for summer so for today’s post I’m going to show you three different looks I’ve been loving for this late summer weather.
A Hot Flash of Outfits For Summer Weather
With red hot temperatures on the rise this summer we all need the perfect sweat-proof outfit that’s going to be perfect for chilling out and cooling down.
Being an autumn baby who lived almost my whole life in Ireland, coming up with summer outfits that are both comfortable and cool can be an impossible task at times, especially because I’m not used to having to go about my everyday life while sweltering under the extreme heat. It’s only really now after two years living in France that I’m getting used to dressing comfortably under the blazing hot sun so for today’s post I came up with three summer outfits that are perfect for staying stylish no matter how high the thermometer may be.
A Little Update After My Last Post
Not the best quality photo I know but I figured that I would come on here and let you guys know how I’m doing after my last blogpost where I was feeling mentally exhausted and just drained from my bad experiences in Paris.
The Perfect Place To Snoop in Paris
Notre-Dame and the square surrounding it may be inaccessible after the fire that happened in April but that doesn’t mean that you should skip out on visiting the quartier of Saint Michel next time you find yourself in Paris.
Bringing Italian Design to Paris
I may live in Paris but the mystical world of Italian maximalism is something that has always deeply inspired me when it comes to igniting my love for all things fashion. Think designers like Alessandro Michele and Donatella Versace paired with a Renaissance-like frivolity and you’ve got yourself the perfect recipe for my inner fashionista’s dream come true.
Fashion for me is at it’s most awe-inspiring when it brings something unique and even sublime into the world as we know it. When I first discovered the whimsical designs of Vivetta Ponti, I immediately became utterly enamoured by the the surreal universe that she creates in each of her dreamy collections. The designer evokes all aspects of abstract art in her creations from impressionistic paintings to poetry and even the sentimental aesthetic of old Disney movies to name but a few. The fact that she has the power to bring such art into her designs is truly amazing and when I saw that one of her pieces was up for grabs recently on Depop, I just had to grab it and make it my own.
Today’s post is all about how I thrifted a designer coat and why it has such a special place in my heart being from one of my favourite designers.
A Thing For Navy Blue
When you think of the typical image of the Parisienne what picture usually comes to mind? The old saying goes that if a parisienne could leave the house clad in nothing but a Burberry trench coat her life would be complete and I have to admit… it’s not untrue. The trench coat is a piece as timeless as they come. Throw an eye back to any old movie set in Paris and you’re bound to see the fiercest of femme fatales wrapped in the most elegant of fabrics. The timelessness of the trench really got me thinking about how every Parisian woman, including each one of the friend’s I’ve made in the city has their own signature piece in their wardrobe.
