The Cari’s Closet Edit


I think most of us fashion lovers are following the power house that is Cari’s Closet on Instagram and/or Facebook

‘Cari’s Closet began as a way to bring top designer dresses and cutting edge fashions to Ireland in a way that is affordable and easy’ and it has certainly lived up to that aim. 

The boutique has three shops in Dublin, Galway and Cork. They also have a worldwide shipping service. 

Ahead of their new website which has now launched they asked me to pick my favourite pieces and looks to share with my followers. 

I think this white dress is elegance and simplicity defined! This would be an ideal choice for the day after a wedding for any bride to be. Then it would also work with a tan on honeymoon. It’s available in pink too. I got this and I’m in love! 


First up with accessories is this gorgeous GG designer looking belt. When it comes to certain accessories, I’m just not willing to invest a lot of money into them. I think this one is priced well. Shop here 


Next is this easy to wear apricot top which is so me and can be worn for lunch with girlfriends or dinner and cocktails. 

Top (also available in black) 

Blush pink heels will go with both daytime and nighttime looks. Make your wardrobe work overtime for you. 

Well there are no words for this showstopper! The colours are DIVINE and it has a real designer look. Shop the dress here (I’m also thinking of the upcoming party season with this dress)

No blog post of mine would be complete without heels and these are extra chic. 

Another showstopper for any occasion is this lavender beauty Pair with the black heels above or these studded nude ones. 

 

Shop these studded nude heels here  

If you’re like me and love your comfortable clothes after work, then this star print loungewear is just for you and a more fashionable alternative to pjs! Yes please. 

I love the grey colour of this long dress and the embellishment is nice without being over the top. I could see myself wearing this to a wedding abroad or (and I know many brides to be follow me) this would be a fabulous bridesmaid dress. 

Speaking of bridesmaid dresses, these multiway dresses are a great way to make sure all your bridesmaids feel entirely comfortable on your big day. They will suit every figure. They are available in charcoal (pictured) magenta, champagne and coral to name a few colours. 

Statement earrings are the easiest way to add umph to your wardrobe and these will also work for autumn/winter with a little black dress or jumpsuit. 

And there you have it, my top pieces from Irish boutique, Cari’s Closet. 

Happy shopping,

Fashionably yours,

Sports Luxe 

I for one, am glad to see that the sportluxe trend is around to stay. It’s so easy to throw on some denims and trainers if you’re not up to wearing ankle boots or heels. I get a lot of messages about runners so I thought I’d put all my favourites into an easy shop post here. Hope you enjoy.


These gazelles sold out recently after I linked them so if you like them go buy 


Hard to keep this colour but worth it.

Embrace the Cape

‘I really need new clothes’ – Me every morning! 


Like a coat, but with a more fashionable edge, capes are taking their place in the winter wardrobe of fashion staples. Choose from woolly capes (which I’m talking today) or more structured coat types, think Ted Baker! Wear whatever you feel comfortable in.

Pink Posh 

Victoria Beckham is just such a stylish lady. When I shared this image of her on my Facebook Page you all loved it so much I thought I’d recreate her style. She’s busy in NYC as she prepares for world domination today with her new collection being shown but busy or not, this sartorial queen never puts a foot wrong. 

Steal her style;



Trousers 

Barely there sandals

 
Plain white shirt

And there you have it, I really love those pink trousers…..also please continue to send me your style steal recreations, I really enjoy seeing you put your twist on the styling I do on my blog.

Heels Heels Heels

A funny thing has happened in fashion lately, footwear choices that were once deemed uncool, and unfashionable are suddenly à la mode! 

Nike ‘flyknit nsw’ in grey 




Running shoes, Birkenstocks, sandals and Adidas sliders are among the low shoes with a high profile nowadays, however there’s just something about slipping on a pair of heels that makes you feel super confident. Today I’m talking gold heels in particular. 

I recently bought a very affordable pair (which I’ll include in my picks below) and got a lot of messages about them so I decided to do a blog post. 

Shop the heels;

My gold heels go with everything in my wardrobe, I’ve only worn them with skinny jeans and a skirt so far but hope to also wear them to a wedding in October.
