What a week it has been. The snow continued to cause havoc for lots of the country with huge snow drifts still being cleared down in the South East. Yesterday was International womens day, a day where women came out in force to celebrate those who mean the most to them, those who inspire them and with messages overall that we still have a long way to go as women took to the streets in Ireland to continue to ask for a date for the referendum to repeal the 8th amendment here in Ireland. Sickness has been in the house with no-one escaping and I have pretty much been bed bound from mid week onwards!
I did however pay a trip into Boots earlier in the week and as always when I do get instore I am reminded how much I love Boot’s mini club clothing. The Limerick store has a tiny section for clothing, which is a pity and it’s hidden at the back of the store, which means I tend to forget it is even there as I pass the shop door but I did swerve pleasantly towards the childrens clothing as I went in to pick up some medicine for the kids.
First up for boys it is all about cute prints in store, these are a few of my favourites of what is on the rails. This lizard print hoodie should make any little boy happy to pair with his jeans or shorts over the summer, maybe with the white insect short sleeved shirt which would be adorable with chino shorts. For fresh Spring days I love this bright green animal print rain jacket and this set of three long sleeved animal print tops
Online on the Boots website these pieces from Fearne Cottons range caught my eye. How cute is this grafitt print sweatshirt and joggers! And this matching bomber jacket which is reversible to a green print with a star logo is fab, I love the idea of two coats in one for boys especially, given they are muck magnets
On ICLothing I love this little plane print sweat cardigan( also comes in grey) and these combat pocket pants.
Over in the girls, this mustard floral print dress is a lovely dress which can be worn with tights for now and paired later with navy leggings when the weather warms up. This turquoise banded party dress with its bird prind is adorable and would make a lovely dress for over Easter with a chunky knit cardigan layered over and later in the year worn bare sleeved with little white T bar sandals.
The blue, coral rimmed neckline floral dress I would pair a long sleeved top underneath with a gillet over for now and worn on its own in warmer weather, or paired with leggings in a bright coral colour as your little girl grows and it becomes more tunic length.
And lastly in Boots in-store this gold and cream party dress is so lovely, the picture doesn’t do the dress justice but its a perfect little occasion dress.
Popping online for a look on Boots given the limited range in-store and there are fabulous pieces ,well worth a look there such as the following cat dress from the Fearne Cotton collaboration.
They also have a reversible bomber jacket for girls aswell in this lovely khaki green cat motiff with reversible pink inside, this is such a great idea!
On Iclothing for girls if you are looking for an occasion dress for your little girl I think this tulle crochet dress is a little different and so pretty!
This coral print top and grey skinny jean is a really cute look for little girls on Iclothing currently.
Zara are throwing out dresses left right and centre and it is hard to keep up with how
quick they are updating their website with new stock this week. These dresses have caught my eye as perfect Spring Summer dresses.
This blue smock laser cut detailed dress is just so pretty. Wear on its own on hotter days with a pair of simple brown sandals or converse and for now you could pair a pair of really skinny dark blue jeans underneath.
This mustard dress is gorgeous and perfect for now. I love the lace like detail at the end of the sleeve and this dress with a leather biker and black ankle boots would take you from day to night!
If you are lucky enough to be heading away then this white floral embroidered dress is perfect once you have a little tan on your legs or wear now with a black tight for contrast .
Zara always have fantastic rubberised dresses for under the twenty euro mark and this smocked V neck floral print dress is a bargain . I have the long sleeved versions of this dress that came out last year and they are so comfortable to wear and always get compliments when I wear them.
You can’t go wrong with a simple striped dress during the Spring, Summer. Paired with converse and layer a denim shirt open over the dress and its an effortlessly smart casual look perfect for days out with the family.
I love this parka, which comes in black and beige aswell new instore, its that perfect inbetween rain coat and not too heavy for when the temperatures rise.
Ok it is one of the more expensive Zara bikers at €79 but can we take a second for this studded fringed suede beauty! I have some of their cheaper bikers and they are as good as the day I bought them several years later . These coats go with everything and are a must have!
If you are not brave enough for the tassles, here is their pink suede version for 2018. How pretty is it! Or maybe the navy ? Both would be lovely over this heron print silk dress with a bare leg and ankle boots.
Happy Friday and have a lovely weekend everyone xx
