For many of you who know me personally, you know that I spend a couple weeks a year visiting my brother in Ireland. I’ve been going for the past 13 years so Ireland has unofficially become my home away from home. It’s been interesting and amazing to see how the city has evolved in recent years. I’ve seen the tech industry blossom, new and modern architecture rise, and the coming and going of my favorite stores and restaurants. However, one thing that hasn’t changed is the warmth of the Irish people and the infectious spirit that you immediately feel upon arrival.
Needless to say, part of my heart will always be in Dublin with my brother. However, I feel very fortunate that I can keep visiting and experience the wonders of the city year after year. One thing that’s also evolved with each visit are my outfits!
This year I felt like I packed particularly light – simply packing ripped jeans, basic dresses and surprisingly only 2 of my moto jackets! I realized that in previous years I packed distinct outfits for each day, whereas this time I packed black and neutral basics that I was easily able to mix and match.
The Irish weather is notoriously temperamental, with bursts of sunshine quickly being blown away by cool wind and rain. With that in mind, my Irish outfits always consist of layers that keep me warm, but ready for any change in temperature.
For this particular look, I layered a simple, neutral Zara dress with an olive Club Monaco vest. The vest is a new purchase that has already paid for itself tenfold. I find myself layering it over short dresses, skirts, and of course, ripped jeans. I love the longer hemline, accessible pockets, and dusty green shade that goes with everything. Thanks Dublin for giving me the opportunity to break out my Fall-wear a little earlier this year! Do you dolls have an item you can’t wait to wear this Fall?
