Guys I'm literally just in the door from a fabulous night away in Doolin, Co. Clare. Oh my god we had such a relaxing and fun time. I loved the hotel we stayed in so much that I had to share it on my blog straight away. This wasn't my first time in Doolin, I was there for a night last year when we stayed in a lovely hostel. While walking to a local pub we noticed a wedding party going into the only hotel in Doolin and I thought if someone chooses this hotel for their wedding venue, then there must be something special about the place. So for yesterdays trip to Doolin I decided to try out Hotel Doolin, it cost €140 for a double room including breakfast. From the outside the Hotel doesn't look like much, the exterior gives nothing away about the stunning interior. The lady on reception was lovely and showed us up to our room. When she opened the door for us and I walked in I was taken a back and really pleasantly surprised by the room decor....it's not often that happens when I enter a hotel room. The majority of hotel rooms look very similar and are styled in bland hues with no character, this room was completely different, it was bright and quirky and the attention to detail made it stand out for all the right reasons. I always find when the room I'm staying in is clean, spacious and cheery I instantly unwind and am guaranteed a relaxing stay.

The weekend is on its way so I have put together an outfit inspiration post while we await its arrival. The Gingham trend sprang to mind for this look, and when we think of this checkered print we immediately think of adding a gingham top or gingham dress to our shopping baskets, whereas I think channeling this trend through accessories is a far more fun idea and I love what I have found and hope you do too.

This post was inspired by a friend/colleague, she was looking for a jumpsuit in a block colour and really loves the colour jade green. Before I even began my search online a curvy model (Louise O'Reilly of stylemecurvy) that I follow happened to pop up on my instafeed wearing a stunning green cropped style that stopped me in my tracks. Isn't it just fab? It's available in dark green (as shown below) or Navy. It's exactly what she was looking for. The cold shoulder detail is so hot right now and adds a nice flash of skin. And of course the cropped leg is super trendy and great for showing off your Saturday night heels.

Adoring this top from Zara, I see it as a very wearable piece to add to your wardrobe - ideal for a dinner date, work wear (for those not confined to a uniform like me....so jealous), drinks nite and great with jeans for your more casual outings. Play around with the belt, tie it to front, over to one side or swing it round and tie it on the back. You could also remove the belt and add one of your own, add a tan style to dress it down or add a punch of colour with a zesty lemon shade. The detailing on this top are just fab too, it boasts the ever so trendy ruffle detail, a waist cinching belt to show off your curves or create them if needed, the print is so refreshing and it has the added benefit of featuring black which means it will match all the existing black pieces in our wardrobes. And who doesn't love a top that only costs €29.95??

The khaki military jacket, an eternal favourite of all fashionistas and this season you can give it a fresh look by simply teaming it with brilliant white. I love the simplistic yet utterly stylish examples below of how to pull off this look with the help of Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo.....

There's nothing I love more than planning an outfit for a wedding. It is however an expensive invite to receive, there's the wedding gift, a day of drinking and before all that of course comes the cost of your outfit. With this in mind I went on the hunt for a purse friendly dress that will get you noticed for all the right reasons.

Footwear at this time of the year can be a tricky one. There are days when the sun is shining and it looks so much like Summer and I think to myself it's the perfect time to show off a new season top or jacket. However, there's one thing holding me back and that's the thought of cold feet.....I cannot deal with having cold toes and someday's (like today) it's just too beautiful out to wear my winter footwear. So I went looking for some footwear inspiration for any of my readers having the same problem. Below are some gorgeous shoe choices that will keep your toes underwraps for a little while longer but will accessorise your new season style perfectly. During my hunt I ended up treating myself to a shiny (literally) new pair of brogues (details below).....Deelighted with them.

Easter always makes me think of my childhood. My Mam has a great talent for knitting and sewing and loved making jumpers and dresses for myself and my sisters. Easter promised a new outfit for Sunday mass and this outfit always (or maybe it's just how I like to remember it) felt like the start of the summer season of bright and cheerful colours. With Easter only two weeks away I have put together some inspiration for an Easter Treat....girls by no means am I suggesting this treat be a replacement for a treat of the chocolatey kind, this is most definitely additional to what the Easter bunny brings. So what's your fave? Mine is a toss up between the Floral block heel sandals and the Embroidered Jacket....if only Mam could through them together for me (sure if you don't ask)
