Here comes the sun!

from: RTÉ Fashion Blog

The weekend is almost upon us, the sun is shining down its glorious rays (and it looks like they are staying put for the foreseeable future). For many lucky ducks out there payday has just arrived, and the thoughts of breaking free from work at five bells to start splurging on a brand spanking new summer wardrobe couldn’t come quick enough.

This summer it’s all about fabulous vivid colour, as well as soft neutral, and pastels – green has reined supremacy on the colour chart. Below are a few staple items that can be mixed and matched all summer long, without breaking the bank.

tako skirt Monsoon


The above statement Tako skirt from Monsoon is great for fashionista’s that want to experiment with the tribal trend without going the full hog. I just adore the Mexican inspired embroidery and flattering pleaded pockets. This skirt is the perfect way to add a splash of colour to your daytime wardrobe. For the perfect office chic look, team with a simple blouse and a neutral wedge. For a more casusal weekend look, this outfit would look amazing with a tucked in t-shirt. A great purchase for festival-goers this summer. At just €70 this skirt is a must-have investment piece!

shoes These funky nubuck leather perferated wedges from Topshop are ultra stylish, yet super comfy. The wooden heel and neutral gray shade mean that these bad boys can go with almost everything in your wardrobe. I love the sporty yet feminine aspects of these shoes. The dainty tassel is my favourite feature.  At €106 a pop they may seem a bit steep, but I can guarantee these will make a long-term addition to your wardrobe.



A bright patterned scarf has to be on your shopping list this summer, and is one of the most versatile products on the fashion market. This beautiful over-sized jungle print sarong can be worn as a hair band, a neck scarf and as an accessory to tie around your handbag. This multi-functioning garment is €125 from

Last but not least, the gorgeous tan leather biker jacket from A Wear is an essential piece to add to your summer collection. At just €65 this jacket really is a bargain!


Happy shopping!
