A Style Post: Deconstructed Tux & Snakeskin Shoes

Hello!

White and off-white are the ultimate summer style colours.

I like it in different shades mixed together on various fashion staples and worn with metallic accessories. I’ve worn it here with a silver ‘pearls’ necklace, gold-tipped heels and a studded silver clutch. I love mixing up smarter pieces with ore casual elements in an outfit; the tux jacket could easily be worn to a more formal occasion, but paired with these pale peach-coloured jeans and a loose hair-do, it was perfect for a lunchtime catch-up on South William Street, Dublin 2.

I also adore The Garden in the lobby of the Powerscourt Centre. Apart from St. Stephens Green and a few hanging baskets dotted here and there, touchable, smellable flowers and foliage are a rare sight in Dublin. The Garden brings brightness and life to this otherwise, grey Georgian street. I have been keen to do a style post wearing something pretty here for months! 

Spring/summer fashion tends to incorporate fewer embellishments than we see in autumn/winter, this beaded cami-top (vintage) is a rare embellished piece, perfect for summer.

Shout out to Sarah at The Licentiate for taking the photos.

P.S I’d love to do more style posts, I enjoy them.

P.P.S – These jeans are the best I’ve ever worn. They are insanely soft and comfy even when you first put them on, plus they don’t stretch an inch. Even after I’d worn them all day they still fitted me perfectly and I didn’t have to wear a belt.

Whistles S/S ’12 Round Up

Hi all,

The high street stores are showcasing and previewing their Spring / Summer 2012 collections. Most recently in to visit Dublin were COS and Whistles.

Before I saw the collection, I wouldn’t really consider myself a Whistles customer, but having seen highlights from the collection, I can say I’m definitely sold.

There were two main themes:

A bright, bold collection of neon colours and androgynous tailoring…

…including lots of matching separates, a blue tux jacket with tapered trousers,

…a pink tux with lighter pink contrast detail…

Striped separates…

Beautiful floral-print top and trousers…

The second collection was beautifully feminine, embellished nudes and pastels…

Including, new for Whistles leather pieces – scalloped nude leather…

…and laser-cut black leather…

…as well as classic shift dresses…

Good to see that the pleated midi skirt is still a wardrobe staple for S/S’12, especially in this powder-blue.

Yours,

Whisty Xx

Whistles is available in Brown Thomas Grafton Street.
