Holiday Clothes

It has been a lovely week here. We even managed a barbecue. This weather always happens at exam time my son starts his next week.  It is lovely to wear lighter clothes but it is still not shorts and flip flops weather.

I took out my summer clothes today and thought I would show you a little sample.

My holiday is only 2 weeks away so I am starting  to get excited. My husband thinks I'm crazy with my outfits laid out on the bed in the spare room. But I think the build up to your holiday is part of the fun.

Hope the sun is shining with you and have a lovely weekend.

New sandals I bought comfortable and yet modern. As the streets are all cobble locked and very steep. I learned last year that high shoes don't work. I fact I wore my flats out and changed to higher heels before entering the restaurant.

I love shorts on holidays and I think the sequinned tshirt dresses them up.

Bargain trousers from Dunnes Stores

Hard to get the true colour of these shorts they are much pinker in reality.

J crew trousers 

Boden Bekini 

L'occitaine Products suitable for carry on.

A little jo Malone bath oil a favourite necklace

It is a long weekend here in Ireland so I have escaped to the seaside for a weekend of relaxation and long walks.

I recently went into town for a lovely afternoon of shopping and also attended an Armani event in Brown Thomas. I really like Armani foundations particularly illuminating silk which gives great coverage and also a healthy glow.

I enjoyed pottering around the little side streets looking at everything from antiques, art, fashion and jewellrey.

I am on countdown to my holidays so trying to decide what to bring will post some summer fashion soon.

Spring is definitely here the beautiful flowers , little lambs and sound of birds just cheer me up.

Wishing you a happy Easter.

The park is so pretty this time of year

I discovered this lovely Parisian cafe on Wicklow Street

I love this ring from The Loft

Happy Easter

The weekend has arrived very quickly and Easter seems just around the corner.

I have spent my week trying on my summer clothes as we have booked our summer holiday to Portugal in a couple of weeks. Oh the fright of trying on swimwear when you are so pale. But I am so looking forward to some sun.

I just thought I would do a pot purri of things I like at the moment.

Really enjoying walking at the moment

The beauty of daffodils

This j crew blouse is sold out but would be perfect for summer white trousers

This blouse is so feminine and pretty

A little Easter chocolate cake 

Mother's Day flowers

These Lily's from sainburys have lasted 2 weeks

 I remodelled an antique ring into a necklace and am so delighted with the result.  I was not wearing the ring.  I would really recommend restyling your jewellrey.

Have a fun weekend
