I will be the first to admit, Winter clothing is the real love of my life, my pasty limbs do not fare well being exposed in the sun. If I could get away with tights all year round I happily would! This Summer in an effort to try and look sunkissed a got my first spray tan since my Debs! It did not turn out well, I looked like an idiot and scrubbed it off as quickly as I could and resigned myself to back and try rock the “pale and interesting” look.

This Summer instead of going crazy buying pieces I bought a few good classic pieces and kept a colour scheme in mind. Most of the pieces I ended up purchasing were either white or navy. Stripy tops in white and navy from Jack Wills and lots of white or navy tops and skirts from Maje, Sandro and Claudie Pierlot ended up making up most of my Summer wardrobe. I also found sticking to a few brands helped make all the items more interchangeable.

Most of these pics came from my poor old I phone so apologies for quality! There’ll be lots more Summer outfit pics coming up soon! Hope you’re all making the most of the weather while we have it!

What I Wore: Summer Wedding

Hello Everyone! I hope you’re all having a lovely summer! Last night I was at an amazing wedding at Killashee House in Kildare. I love summer weddings and the beautiful old country house was a beautiful setting for a celebration. I sipped cocktails and danced all night with my lovely family, what more could a girl ask for?!

Yummy sandwiches!

Cakes and scones!

Before the dancing started my boyfriend and I went for afternoon tea in the hotel. Afternoon tea must be one of my favourite things in the world and I cant miss an opportunity to try it out whenever I go to a new hotel! It was delicious! There was far too much to eat though so we brought the leftovers back up to our room for a midnight snack!

My Beauty Products.

These are the products that graced my face and body for the night! I went for a full coverage foundation with a shimmer and highlighter of my cheeks, a plum colored lip and beige and light brown shimmer eye shadow.

My dress is by fabulous Irish designer Mary Grant. Both my mother and I are obsessed with her clothes. I got this number in her pop us shop in Kildare Village a few months ago specifically for this wedding. I love it! I don’t have many full length dresses and this made me feel very elegant and ladylike!  My shoes are from Ted Baker and matched the dress better than I ever could have imagined! I wore a string of pearls and then a necklace with one big fresh water pearl which was made by my wonderful mother!

I was so happy with how everything came together! Usually I’m wondering if my hair will behave or my make up stay on but last night was one of those magical times where everything seems to go your way! Which left my mind free to concentrate of having a ball with my family! So until next time everyone keep enjoying the Summer! xxx
