Irish Fashion Check Chic 1

Hey guys,

Are you all enjoying this beautiful weather? It’s really amazing how much the sun makes me smile. It instantly makes my day better. 🙂 Summer is well and truly on the way so let’s hope it is as good as last year. For today’s post, as promised, I am showing you what I wore out for a friends birthday over the weekend. If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter you may have seen this outfit over the weekend. I must admit, it was a very last minute outfit choice. I spent all day on Saturday baking a birthday cake for my friend and trying to write a paper so the day just flew by. As I stood staring blankly into my wardrobe all I knew was that I wanted to wear my new DVF handbag. Isn’t it a beauty? It’s my first DVF piece and I am really impressed with it. It’s real leather, so the quality is fantastic, and it sits perfectly so it’s super comfy to wear. I really love it and just know I will have it for years! There’s a little story behind this bag too… if you remember, I spent a few days in Dublin at the start of March. As I was strolling up Grafton Street, I randomly entered a competition to win a €500 voucher for Brown Thomas and guess what? I WON!!!! I never win anything so I couldn’t believe my luck. Anyway, I bought this bag with the voucher and my new rose gold Michael Kors watch that I am also wearing here. I already have a gold MK watch but love the rose gold too and just couldn’t resist. The colour of this bag is officially described as ‘sunburnt’ so I knew I had to keep the rest of my outfit pretty simple and you can’t go wrong with monochrome now can you? I added a statement necklace, some black heels, dainty rings, and my new watch to complete the look.

What do you think? Do you like it?

    […] and wear with any outfit. I also wore emerald pendant statement necklace (that you have seen before here and here) to pick up on more of the colours in the skirt. I think it really pops with the pink top. […]
