Let them be Green with envy!

Hi guys!

As we all know trends come and go, but I want to talk to you about making the rest of the fashion pack green with envy! I have always been a fan of the colour Green. The many different shades of green make it a perfect colour to have all year round, but lets concentrate on Spring/Summer. The versatility of the colour makes it so easy to co-ordinate with base colours such as white, navy and grey. This seasons high street is full of many different shades of green and I am going to bring you my top menswear picks from the wide variety of stores available at Athlone Town Centre this season. There are some great menswear stores in Athlone Town Centre to help you keep your look on trend! All of these items can be worn in a casual manner or can also be smartened up to take you from day to-night. (more…)

MLB Sports Luxe Look with Fanatics

Hi Guys

I was recently approached by an American website called Fanatics to style a Sports Luxe look using one of the Major League Baseball caps featured on their website. I was happy to accept  for two reasons, one I love trying out new ideas for my blog and two I have always thought Sports Luxe would be a tricky look for me to style but I like a challenge!

Off I went in search of inspiration from magazines and the internet to see if I could find suitable pieces.I wanted to look for pieces that I would wear but would also be ideal for this look. First off I had to pick my Baseball cap to use for the look. I chose this Chicago Cubs Grey and Blue snapback cap. Even though I am more of an NFL fan I chose the Chicago Cubs cap because my sister Danielle spent a summer in Chicago. I also have many relations over there also making it a personal reason why I chose them.

So now that I have the cap picked, lets move on to the rest of the outfit. While getting inspiration I noticed that bomber jackets and fitted joggers were major players in this trend so I found these two perfect pieces.

I have already mentioned the bomber jacket from boohoo.com in a previous post as my pick of the preview that I attended. So I thought it was fitting to have it in the outfit. Its colour and texture make it a must have.

The Navy skinny joggers accompany this outfit perfectly and I feel the colours really compliment each other. The joggers give the outfit a nice tailored look

. I decided to put this White baseball polo shirt from River Island underneath the bomber jacket. I like the overall look of the polo shirt and the style was just fitting for the task in hand.

Finally to the footwear I have always been a big fan of Converse so these break point trainers were the perfect pair to add the finishing touches to my Sports Luxe outfit. I just thought the colour worked well with the look and complimented the rest of the pieces.

Hope you guys enjoyed the post and please provide feedback of the sports luxe look! To shop for a baseball cap like the one featured go to the baseball hat page on fanatics website.

Boohoo.com S/S15 Preview

Hi Guys,

I was invited to attend the Boohoo.com press preview for their S/S15 collection on Tuesday. The event was held in the Morrison Hotel on Ormond Quay in Dublin. It is a really stylish hotel and Burrell PR did a great job with the event. I didn’t know what to expect as it was my first press event but I was greeted by the lovely Leah from Burrell PR who showed me around and presented me with a goody bag and a drink from the drinks reception always a nice way to start an event! There was 2 rails for the mens collection it didn’t look like much but there was a lot of key pieces within that small space.

    

Many of the pieces I had already seen on both the website and the recent TV adverts. I found many pieces that I liked as I never imagined Boohoo  sold classic or dapper pieces but I was pleasantly surprised. There was quite a few and also many trend inspired pieces. All the pieces were inspired by the city of Manchester, this is where Boohoo.com is based.

    

This knitted bomber jacket was one item that caught my eye prior to the event and I fell even more in love with it as it was exactly as it was described on the website,which isn’t always the case when buying online.

There was many other items that caught my eye and here they are for you to shop til you drop.

                

But the one item that I hadn’t noticed at first but was brought to my attention by one of the Boohoo reps was this Suedette Bomber Jacket. Everytime I went back to the rails I was automatically drawn to it. It is definitely on my must buy list especially when there was a €50 gift card in the goody bag. This was a very generous thing to do especially when it was already a privilege to check out this seasons collection.

Overall it was a good event and it was very well run and I hopefully look forward to attending another event like it in the near future, good job Burrell PR and Boohoo!!

All these great items can be found at Boohoo.com

Hope you enjoy!!
