Hi guys! Happy Tuesday with bells on it! I haven’t done a “Tuesday Shoesday” post in quite a while so I decided to put together an edit with some of my most favourite espadrilles & slider styles that are available right now and bang on trend.
I am having quite an obsession with espadrilles and sliders. There are too many gorgeous pieces out there and had to really narrow down the post so as not to bombard you all! We may not be having the best summer but lets embrace the “slightly” warmer temperatures and leave those boots aside. Just click on the pictures for direct links!

Apologies in advance for the diminishing bank balances if you too have a shoe addiction.
P.S. How gorgeous is the style in the cover photo! ?

“One day like this a year will see me right….” I’m still singing after the Elbow gig at Live at the Marquee on Wednesday night! I absolutely adore music and always feel so uplifted after a good gig! That being said, I don’t go to enough concerts, something I need to start doing more! I picked up this cute smock summer dress from Asos recently. It was quite the bargain at €37 and have it linked below too (just click on the pictures for links). It’s really good quality and has that lovely jersey material for a good fit. Winner all round!
Current Favourite Summer Dresses
I’m obsessed with dresses at the moment! I think it’s because as a nation and our climate, we don’t get the chance to get out of the jeans much but I’m definitely making more of an effort this summer. That being said, I don’t know if it’s a good thing because right now I want all the dresses! Smock and midi styles being my top favourites. Topshop, Zara, River Island and Asos have a great range at the moment and lots of good offers! Whitefawn Boutique also have the most divine range at the moment and they are also having a sale!
The dress above that I wore on holidays is from an Australian label called Auguste and is now sold out, however they do have other gorgeous pieces in stock and some on sale!
I adore the label. They have such a gorgeous range of clothing, however they are that little bit more expensive as the pieces are such good quality and you must be prepared to pay customs charges on delivery! So you would really really want to get the wear out of your piece before purchasing.
Happy shopping 🙂 C, X
There is no doubt about it – when Spring has sprung, I am instantly refreshing my wardrobe! Let’s be honest, winter in Ireland is long, drab and dark and the need for brighter tones once March arrives is instant! Plus many of us have just finished paying endless January and February bills after the Christmas period! Light knits can be so easy to style. Pair a cropped knit over a cute dress or skirt and a longer knit over your favourite jeans, layering with a leather jacket for an extra edge. You can get my rust knit here
A light knit will see you through the spring, summer and autumn seasons. Layer up or down as the temperatures change (which is common in Ireland). A pretty jumper will take you from day to night easily!!
Some of my favourite knits at the moment:
River Island Grey Mesh off Shoulder Jumper
Free People Endless Stories Jumper @ ASOS
Frills, ribbon details and mesh are high on trend this season and all are super flattering to wear. Many of my readers will know at this stage, that I am big on quality over quantity with everything (something my bank balance does not thank me for at times!!) So my advice is, if you really love something and you will genuinely get the wear out of it, then go for it! The reality is, it will go far if the quality and brand is good. Look outside the box too – if you purchase something from a small boutique or a different brand on a website such as ASOS, subsequently the chances are your choice will be unique and no one else will probably have it!

& Other Stories Frilled Merino Wool Knit
Finally, as the saying goes, “If you can’t stop thinking about it, buy it.” Happy shopping! X
