Airport à la Kendall

kenny 1kenny 2

Leave it to Kendall Jenner to turn a trip to the airport into the perfect outfit opportunity. She opted to travel to London recently in this totally affordable $38 off the shoulder top. She paired it with skinny black jeans and a Saint Laurent bag and boots.

Kendall was spotted at her bff Taylor Swift’s concert before rushing off to support brother in law Kanye West who was performing at Glastonbury. This model and IT girl certainly has a busy social life.

I think this black top is very versatile and could work for many occasions, whether that’s a night out or a weekend lunch date.

I am now going on the hunt for some lookalike boots to copy those that Kendall wore, I simply love them.

Wimbledon Winning

wim2wimbledon

When it comes to Wimbledon, there’s a stylish new queen of court and it’s Andy Murray’s beautiful bride, Kim Sears. With impeccable taste, a go to winning formula and a swish of that glossy hair, Kim has stepped into the spotlight time and time again, always coming out on top.

Here’s how Kim achieves the perfect Wimbledon Wardrobe in six easy steps.

1) The statement bag, Mulberry’s Willow as touted by Kim through manys a tournament. Shop the bag in a different colour or a cheaper alternative bag.

2) Hobbs love in, Kim trusts this high street stalwart and so should we. I have picked out some dresses for you to look at, most of them reduced now.

3) The perfect pair of wedges. Ms Sears knows how long a good game of tennis could go on, especially if her husband or Novak Djokovic has anything to do with it.

4) Just stepped out of the salon hair. Kim’s perfect blow – dry has garnered Kim as many column inches as her husband and even has its own Twitter account, @KimSearsHair!

5) Cover ups. When all around her, celebrities were flashing far too much flesh for tournament traditionalists, Kim knew when to opt for a smart cover up, usually a denim jacket.

6) That rock…..While most of us will just have to dream of a £200,000 engagement ring, Kim has the real deal on her finger and there is no better accessory for her to showcase.

And that’s it, Kim has played it well so far and I personally cannot wait to see what this fashionista brings courtside this Wimbledon Tournament.

Racing Ready

The best thing about racing? There really are no fashion rules. There is nothing like a race day to let your style shine and for you to enjoy the chance to dress up!

Last year Millie Mackintosh was one of the fashionistas to judge ‘best dressed lady’ at The Irish Derby so I’ve created a similar look to hers here and also included some different styles of dresses for you to peruse at your leisure. Some of them are on sale!

3) Off the shoulder dress

Will you be racing this year? The Irish Derby is on this weekend June 26th – 28th. I will probably go to The Galway Races as it is something of a Family tradition in our house.

Pretty in Pink

The old saying ‘pink to make the boys wink’ is especially true about this bright pop of colour. I have to admit I am not always the biggest fan of pink and if I do choose to buy something in it, it would definitely be in a paler shade. That said, I saw this outfit earlier in the week and knew I had to steal her style. Shop the look below.

It’s a REFORMATION

reform 3reformreform1

‘We make killer clothes that don’t kill the environment’ – Reformation.

Ever since i spotted Millie wearing this beautiful beige dress, (I admit, I check her Instagram account every day) I’ve been lusting after it. One thing I’ll say about my personal style is that it’s always evolving, that’s the fun of fashion I suppose. Sometimes, I like formal, elegant garb for an event, lately, I’ve been loving the ‘undone’ look.

I think we can safely call this season the ‘season of the shoulder’. Actress and fashion blogger Jamie Chung has since stepped out in a similar piece to that of Millie’s.

Ode to Ted, Caped Crusaders.

The coolest cover-up to update your wardrobe ahead of the new season, yep the cape is here to stay and seeing as most of us have invested heavily in the trend, we couldn’t be happier.

I know I shouldn’t be talking about autumn/winter stock yet, but I couldn’t resist after seeing this last week in Brown Thomas. The navy colour immediately caught my eye and when I tried it on, I knew I had to have it.

So as Ted himself says, swing into the new season with this contemporary cape.

White Shirt Style

white 4white2whitewhite on jeans

Next to blue jeans and converse trainers, there’s nothing quite as ‘go to’ as the humble white shirt. It’s versatile, cool and it’s a piece that can be worn any day of the year. That said, there’s something about summer that makes the white shirt especially necessary. It can anchor statement pieces such as printed shorts, coloured jeans or simply convey a sense of casual with a pair of denim jeans and heels.

Shades Of Grey

GREY 5GREY 3GREY 4GREYGREY 1GREY 2

Ever since I saw a picture of Chrissy Teigen, whose style and personality I adore, turning a routine airport check-in into an exciting fashion statement, I’ve been looking to add more grey to my wardrobe.

This season, there is plenty of emphasis on the cooler and softer side of the colour spectrum, with bolder colours taking a back seat in a more supportive role as an accent.

I’ve decided to steal Chrissy and Katie Holmes style for you to enjoy/shop.

Look 1:

Shop the distressed jeans

Shop the grey trench

Shop the barely there sandals  and  cheaper sandals 

Look 2:

Katie has definitely come a long way since her Joey Potter days of Dawson Creek, cementing her name as one of Hollywood’s true style icons.
