Five things you need to own NOW

Ok the Beast from the East is gone and the Pest from the West is hopefully more of a press moniker than an actual front, in any case we can put all of that nonsense behind us and get on with the real business of Spring.

the jacket

According to the fashion bible Vogue, pashminas are achingly passé and fascinators are so o-v-e-r. So whats a girl to do when she needs a cover up at an event? Enter the longline blazer. Insouciantly cool, it’s the ideal inbetweener – not quite a blazer, not quite a duster coat. This pick is from Penneys – where else?


Longline blazer, €18, Penneys

the dress

Caroline Kilkenny is the ultimate purveyor of to-die-for dresses. This off the shoulder number is super sleek ‘n’ sexy and with the right styling is certainly more top notch than TOWIE so you can look totally fishy.

the bag

Looking for a fashion hit for under 40, this green saddle bag from Next with faux brass detailing is your only man. Plus its a lovely shade of green, a cute little nod to Saint Patrick’s day without going full on 40 shades.


bag, €38,

the earrings

These resign earrings from M and S look waaaaay more expensive than they actually are. Oodles of flash for not so much cash!


earrings, €20,

the shoes

Heading back to Penneys coz we forgot something – shoes! Nude courts for 12 euro? It would be rude not to.


shoes, €12,

Share the joy
