Five things you need to own NOW

Are we thinking Autumn Winter already with this chilly, rainy downturn? ‘Fraid so.

Let the thought of lovely new things to buy warm the cockles of your heart.

the jacket

Yes we know, denim jackets are a staple and you probably have one lurking in your wardrobe – but, there’s a slew of brightly coloured offerings in the shop right now for you to get your hands on. If candy coloured hues ain’t your thing, dip your toe in the water with this russet jacket from Next.

the top

Basic white tops, tees and cami’s are surprisingly difficult to come across, however this ivory cami from the ethical silk company is a real find.  Firstly it’s part of a set (comes with shorts) so you get real bang for your buck, also the production of the silk is completely cruelty free so your conscience can rest and finally it also has a super flattering V at the neck which will elongate your neck making you look taller. What more could you want?

the trousers

Get a load of these Paper bag waisted PU pants from Penneys – a bit of a mouthful alright but these ARE the trousers for the upcoming season. Worn with heels or trainers, they are super versatile and bang on trend.

the foundation

FINALLY! IT cosmetics have landed in Ireland and we couldn’t be happier. Their famous CC cream is fantastic and truly is ‘your skin but better’. It promises and delivers  ‘flawless, perfect coverage’  while protecting your skin  with SPF 50+ UVA/UVB physical sunscreen (which is better than the chemical one). It really is an all in one.

the trainers

The 90s are back, now whether you choose towering buffalo trainers or timberland boots is up to you. These bad boys however, are non negotiable. Fila Disruptor II trainers have been seen on everyone from Bella to Kendall and give you comfiness and extra oomph. Singing Spice up your World on full blast is also a must.
