I’m usually not a huge fan of vintage.. I mean, I can completely appreciate how stunning and beautiful it is but 9 times out of 10 it just doesn’t suit me. When I think of vintage I instantly think of small sizes and generally it just doesn’t work on girls that are in anyway “busty”. This pink longline blazer though was my exception. I routed this beauty out of a vintage shop in Clifden, Connemara during the summer and I honestly could not believe my luck. The quality of it is absolutely amazing and the best part? It was only €20!!
With the arrival of September, means the coming of shorter and of course colder days. I, for one, am absolutely delighted that Autumn is finally here. Try as I might, I’m just not a Summer girl when it comes to fashion. It goes without saying that we didn’t exactly get very good weather in Ireland this Summer meaning we didn’t get very much wear out of our Summer wardrobes. That’s what I love about the Autumn/Winter season – we are guaranteed to get endless wear out of the pieces we buy. Although, that definitely isn’t the only reason why I’m A/W mad – I love, love, LOVE the darker, richer palettes and colours, the layering and the sheer cosiness of winter dressing. Let’s not forget all the fun accessories we get to play around with in this season too.. I mean if you don’t like a collarless coat in Summer then good luck, it’s not being worn, but in Winter, throw a fur collar or cashmere scarf around the neck and it’s totally transformed.
I’ll warn you from the get go, this post is gonna be a picture heavy one but once you look at the photos you will understand why. While I was in America last month, we were lucky enough to be there for the 4th of July weekend. On that weekend we decided we would take the plunge and drive up to Lake Tahoe. Now when I say we, what I really mean is leave all of the driving to our brilliant and considerably less of a wuss, best friend Sara Kate and leave the annoying singing and car-games to us in the back. We rose early on the Saturday morning (hungover, again- shock, I know!) to come to the conclusion that it was probably best to get out of the city for the weekend so Tahoe View Post
Brunching has definitely got to be one of my favourite things to do, mainly because when you talk about it, it sounds more like an activity rather than what it is – eating, and lots of it. It’s a civilised way of saying I’m going out at noon for a fry up and bottomless bubbles! That’s why I was over the moon to attend this year’s Midsummer Brunch with Absolut to celebrate the end of another amazingly successful Galway International Art’s Festival. The breakfast come lunch was hosted by ones of Galway’s trendiest eateries – Biteclub. View Post
How glorious is this weather we’re getting? 30 degrees heat is something we are not used to here in Ireland! These warmer temperatures had me dreaming all day of being back among the vines in Napa, so much so I said I’d finally get around to posting about it 🙂 For anyone who follows me on snapchat or Instagram (@adashoflime) or if you know me at all for that matter, then you’ll know that I’m not exactly shy when it comes to professing my love for wine. From the very first evening we decided we were going to San Francisco, both of us immediately said that there was absolutely no way in hell that we were going that far without visiting the infamous wine country.
