I don’t tend to share my fashion interests on this blog due to the fact that I try to stay true to its travel and European-living theme. However, this doesn’t mean that I don’t take an interest in style. From time to time I’ve given my readers a little peek at other fashion blogs I enjoy – The Beauty Department, for example – and I even went on a Pinterest streak, sharing some of my favorite pins. Well, I think it’s about time I take a small look at style since I left the house today sans jacket for the first time in a long time. It’s officially spring here and I need to start dressing like it! My love of black needs to hibernate until next fall – or at least take a backseat to some brighter colors.
Living in Dublin didn’t exactly inspire a bright wardrobe; the cooler and rainier atmosphere resulted in purchases of dark sweaters, jeans, jackets, etc. Therefore, I think a little wardrobe revamp is in order. I’m not a huge shopper, so this will probably happen over time. But in the meantime, I’ve got these fashionable blogs and ladies to use for inspiration along the way…
I am not nearly as fashion forward as Emily on Cupcakes and Cashmere, but I peruse her site nearly every day to see what she’s currently trending. I loved this post for two reasons: those pants are great and I have that bag! The complete look is fabulous, but those pants are specifically on my mind for a spring wardrobe update.
This entire outfit at The Glamourai is perfect summer chic, especially the Kelly Wearstler blouse. There is nothing better than a comfortable and silky blouse during the spring and summer.
I love this blue, pleated skirt that I saw on Pinterest, originally found on Lucy Laucht. I’m not too sure how a skirt like this would look on my frame, but if I stumble across something similar, I’ll at least give it a try.
I tend to be a trousers, shorts, and capris type of gal, so these trousers at Zara are definitely my style. I love the color, I love the fit, and I love the belt!
*I have to give a shout-out to my sister, Melissa, because she agreed to bring a couple of very lightweight, shorter-sleeved sweaters with her to Spain that I ordered and had sent to her residence. Clearly, she’s the best.
