Denim Days

Living Easy Style Personal StyleBack in my old stomping ground of Queen St West. It’s definitely one of my favourite streets in Toronto for whiling away a Saturday. Dotted with independent boutiques, quirky restaurants, cool little coffee spots and not forgetting the leafy green Trinity Bellwoods Park. On this particular Saturday the park was hosting a vintage market. We spent a fine hour or two browsing clothing racks, bargain bins and lot’s of unique industrial furniture finds. Continue reading

Ireland to Canada // Making Moves

Living Easy - IrelandLiving Easy IrelandLivingEasyIreland

Finally I’m back on the blog after an unplanned hiatus. The reason being myself and my husband have made the big move back to Toronto – who knew moving country would be so time consuming?? (tongue firmly in cheek!).

The last year at home in Ireland has been an absolute blast. Catching up with family and friends, not forgetting all the road trips. When we left Canada last year we had a mission to visit some of Ireland’s towns and sites that we hadn’t yet visited. The Giant’s Causeway and Croagh Patrick being two of the highlights. I’ve stacks of photos to share on the blog, so stay tuned!

These photos are the last outfit photos taken at home in Ireland. Busy with the move I didn’t get a chance to share. Back in basics, it’s fair to say a colour palette of greys and blacks are still a favourite of mine. I picked up the leather look skirt in Zara, the asymmetrical zip detailing was the clincher for me. Also I scored the AllSaints peep toe boots at Kildare Village – delighted with my last buy in Ireland (if you ever make the trip to Ireland, a stop at Kildare Village is a must for shopping!).

When the sun is shinning, there really is no place better than Ireland. And today in between cloud cover, was one of those days! In true Irish fashion, I made the most of every ray of sun,  dressed in a festival vibe exploring the gorgeous countryside. It’s funny how style evolves having previously swore I would never wear overalls. I shiftly ditched such promises as soon as I clapped eyes on these Only denim overalls at our #OpshFashTag photo shoot. Luckily as part of our prize, we were given the choice of one outfit to take home. Needless to say the overalls, in all their distressed denim goodness found a new home with me. I guess my lesson learned, is when it comes to fashion never say never!

I’d love to hear any of your fashion change of hearts? Feel free to share in the comments.x

THINK PINK

                Boots – Nicholas Kirkwood x Erdem // Knit-Asos // Aviators-Ray-Ban                              Bag & Boyfriend Jeans – Zara (similar)

Finally coatless! Even if it’s for one day only and I’m snug in a high neck knit. I’m still marking a big fat X on the calendar. Dust down the deck chairs and grab your factor 30 – summer is on the horizon! Over ambitious? Absolutely and I’m making no apologies. The weather this past couple of months has me contemplating some type of Ark investment! So trust me, each dry, bright day counts. And the rescue of my boyfriend jeans and sunglasses from the depths of wardrobe oblivion is one step closer to summer sun.

Not forgetting my Nicholas Kirkwoord x Erdem ankle boots on this long list of firsts. My very last purchase before I left Toronto, bought in the height of summer from The Room. I remember struggling with the fact that I was already well over weight in the luggage department. But the overzellous sale tag won out and with some very determined packing the boots made it safely home.

Cable Knit & Cobblestones

LivingEasyFirstly apologies, the above photo look’s like how I’m feeling tonight – a little blurry! I blame an overzealous Saturday night for my blurry head and the cold weather for a rushed job on the snaps. That and the fact that our quiet little back street was all of a sudden bustling full of tourists once the camera starting clicking. I guess it’s to be expected, choosing a location beside Ireland’s most famous brewery. Home of the black stuff – Guinness HQ. The price you pay having Dublin’s gorgeous cobbled streets as your back drop. Continue reading

Camo on the Curragh Plains

LivingEasy Bag – Bershka // Jacket , Camo Pants, Knit – Zara // Sneakers – TopShop

There’s nothing like changing season’s to add an element of danger to dressing. Not quite winter and not quite spring. Everyday is an Irish day – you never know what you’re going to get! So layering is not only stylish but very essential. These shots were taken on a rare spring like day. Dressed in layers of quilted leather, denim, camo and knit, I was pretty cosy playing tourist at home and taking in some trails at The Curragh. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for lot’s more snaps and adventures as #livingeasydiscoversireland.
