My Top Ten: Summer Sales

If you’re like me then you’ll love picking up a bargain or two in the Summer sales. I find it so hard to resist having a nosey around the shops at this time of year, especially when I want to invest in a few statement items. However, I’m really not one for trawling through sales racks so once the sales start, it’s online shopping time for me.

I love a good sale for picking up some staple wardrobe items, or a few statement or designer pieces that might otherwise have been out of my price range. If you get in early enough, there are some real gems to be found. For example, I recently bought a pair of Prada white leather trainers that were reduced by 50% in Brown Thomas, and while I normally wouldn’t have paid that kind of money for a pair of trainers, the half price tag meant I didn’t have to think twice!

A good bargain literally fills me with glee and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one this happens to. So in the interest of spreading some bargain buy love, I’ve picked out my Top Ten Picks from this year’s summer sales to share with you all. What’s even better? You can buy them all online!

Weddings, Bank Holidays & Summer Oufits

Today is a good day, it’s my Friday, it’s a bank holiday weekend and to make it even better, we’re off to the lovely Castle Durrow for my beautiful friend Lucy’s wedding. And to make it even doubly, doubly better, I’m a bridesmaid, yay!

You may remember a few weeks back, we had a Club Tropicana themed hen for Lucy in the stunning Clonabreany House and now the celebrations will continue for the big day itself.

Obviously as I’m bridesmaid, I can’t reveal anything about our outfits just yet, but over the past month or so in Paris and here, I picked up a few bits for summer and I’ve decided to pull some of them out to wear over the weekend. Here’s a look at some of the things I bought:

FashCollage1

  1. ZARA Printed Blazer €69.95
  2. H&M Long Denim Shirt €24.99
  3. H&M Round Sunglasses €9.99
  4. COS Coral Petal Drape Top €59.00
  5. COS Blue & White Stripe Belted Sleeveless Top €69.00
  6. ZARA Nude Embossed Flats €19.95
  7. ZARA Skinny Jeans €39.95
  8. ZARA Printed Dress €59.95

We have pre-wedding drinks tonight, the wedding tomorrow, a second day party on Saturday and another friend’s birthday on Sunday, so it’s definitely going to be a weekend full of celebrations with lots of different outfits needed. The only obstacle I now have is that it’s been more like winter in Ireland for the past few weeks, with hailstones and snow are both forecast for this weekend. So all my outfit planning may go out the window, eeek.

But fingers crossed the snow stays away and I get to wear some of my new clothes.

For now, I’m going to love you and leave you so I can finish getting packed and get on the road.
