Rebecca Rose, StylistBy Rebecca Quigley
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and ready to kick start this Monday with a bang!
I for one am very excited and nervous for the week ahead as I have so much happening. So it’s the week of Galway Races and is always a busy one for me as I head down on Wednesday evening after a hectic start to the week of work and events.
On Thursday I of course will be entering into ladies day and then on Friday I will be able to relax a little more as I am delighted to be apart of the judging process this year for ‘Friday’s Most Stylish’. An incredibly fun gig for me.
Then I leave on Friday night and head back to the big smoke to get ready for my TV slot (yes I said TV!!) on Saturday AM. I hope you all will tune in!
Anyway less about that, lets stay focused and chat about all things casual!
I often hear on many occasions from my clients that they find dressing down at the weekends a little difficult, especially if there something on or somewhere to go and want to be comfy and feel stylish but not really dressy. With that in mind, I’ve styled two chic and stylish looks that will see you through this fab weather and have you looking super stylish!
I am not a huge jean girl mainly due to the fact that I think there is plenty of time through the Autumn and Winter to wear skinny’s. So instead I will showcase here two very comfy casual day time looks that include a cute coordinate and a khaki dress. I hope you like them!

Happy Saturday Gals!
I hope you all have some lovely things plans for the weekend. I for one hope to head out over the weekend!
Today on the blog I am talking all about the summer essentials that will keep all those wardrobes up to date.
If you are anything like me, you too are always hyped to buy the latest and greatest trends. But a well-balanced wardrobe also includes a combination of timeless essentials that won’t go out of style. So this summer I am going to help you to make sure your closets are full with fashion staples that we can wear for years to come.
Once you’ve rounded up the basics, it’ll be easier than ever to get dressed and mix and match items. So have a read to make sure you have these key summer staples.
The white T-shirt may not be the most exciting piece of clothing, but it is one of the most versatile especially this SS18. The simple summer style can partner with nearly everything and look great. So, whether you’re rocking a midi skirt, underneath a strappy dress or with your jeans, you can never go wrong with this staple piece.
2. The Perfect Wedges
When you want a dressier summer shoe, wedges and block heel sandals are practical and on trend, and neutrals are definitely way to go. What’s nice about these styles is they’re easy to walk in and offer more stability than a stiletto while still elongating your legs.
3. White Trainers
Keep your feet looking and feeling fresh this summer with a pair of white sneakers. The minimalistic shoe is a must-have style and it is perfect for both busy days and lazy weekends.
4. Tea Dress
Whether you’re heading out for the day, for evening drinks or to your favourite cafe for brunch, a tea dress makes an excellent outfit choice. The chic and simple style is perfect for keeping you feeling cool and looking effortlessly elegant both dressed up and down like I have shown.
5. Straw Hat
Protect your skin from the sun’s harsh rays while looking great this summer with the help of a straw hat. Perfect for the beach or a picnic, a straw hat can put a fashionable finishing touch on countless warm weather looks.
6. The Perfect Sunglasses
There’s no better way to finish off a stylish summer outfit than with some sleek shades. While there are plenty of styles to try, none will ever beat the ideal pair for your face shape. So, whether you rock a classic pair of aviators or look chic in a cat eye design, embrace your personal version of the perfect sunglasses with pride. I tend to wear many budget style glasses but the ones I am wearing in this shoot are from Prada at Brown Thomas.
7. Basket Bag
Basket bags have been “a thing” for the past while and has become a must-have accessory for designers, fashionistas, and celebs (just scroll down your Instagram feeds to see how many bloggers, Insta-celebrities have been spotted carrying a straw bag at Coachella and just everywhere!).
8. A Denim Jacket
I has become much a part of our closets as a checked blazer. But it can get a little, well, boring. It’s not that we don’t love this wardrobe staple it’s that we can run out of ways to make it feel fresh and interesting. During the colder months, we can also be tempted to throw it out which I have done when doing my wardrobe detox, regretting it later when it’s the summer and want it for every summer outfit. So make sure to keep them even if it gets a little rugged as that just ask character.
Oh, yes, the dreaded swimming suit, having a well-fitting bathing suit is a must. I know not too many people enjoy shopping for swim wear but it must be done. If you are a little bustier, I would always recommend a suit with an underwire or built in bra. Vertical stripes are always very flattering and a pop of colour will always make you stand out while pool side!
