The Comforts of Home…
No matter where we may be in the world, the Irish always have been gifted at adapting to new cultures and new customs. We have a long history of immigration that is still ongoing today with housing crises in all our major cities, lack of public transport pretty much all over the country and lets not forget the harsh climate that we all have to endure on our little island.
While I’ll never regret emigrating at such a young age, there is a huge amount of things about home that I miss a lot. For today’s post (and since I am still in Ireland) I thought I would share them with you! Let’s start.
The Wild Atlantic Way of Donegal
If there’s one thing to know before travelling to Ireland it’s that you haven’t seen any of it unless you’ve visited the Wild Atlantic Way. This week myself and Greg went to Sliabh Liag in Co. Donegal and although we were blown to bits by the wind and the rain, we still managed to snap some photos of the cliffs.
Home From Abroad
It’s been two years since I last saw a summer in Ireland and now that I’m back, I couldn’t feel happier to be home.
As much as I love Paris, I’m pretty happy that I haven’t spent much of August in it. There’s nothing quite like escaping to the countryside, especially when that countryside is the place where you grew up.
One of the places on the top of my list to revisit when I was back in Ireland was Glendalough which is an enchanting lake and ruined monastery located not too far away from Dublin. I made a video there last Autumn that you can check out here but otherwise the photos I took this time are pretty spectacular too!
Old Places, New Outfits
Hello my lovelies! Happy New Year to you all! I really hope that 2019 is off to a good start for all of you and that you’re feeling just as motivated for the new year as I am.
For our first post of 2019 I’m coming at you from Ireland with an outfit that I was absolutely loving during my stay there over the holidays. This ensemble is one that makes me feel so killer. I don’t know what it is about setting foot on Irish soil that makes me want to embrase a wilder dress sense but growing up by the mountains and by the sea always made me feel so inspired by the ruggedness and unpredictability of the landscape. Whenever I touch down in Ireland I love letting that edginess and impulsiveness shine through in my look.
A Touch of Cashmere + How It Feels To Be Home
Here I am, back in my seaside town in Ireland for the holidays. I’ve taken a long pause from social media over the month of December and especially over the Christmas break where my time was largely spent catching up with friends and family. It’s crazy how quickly time has flown by. It really feels like just yesterday I was still in Paris, shooting outfits and filming my vlog about going home. Since making that video and landing home, it really feels like the time I spent in Ireland, opening presents with my family under the tree and sitting all around the kitchen table, eating countless turkey and ham dinners and drinking bubbly has gone by in the blink of an eye.
I just uploaded the vlog of my trip home to Ireland and it honestly feels so strange to be back in Paris. I’ve spent the past week trying to settle back into life in France but I had such an amazing stay in Ireland that I couldn’t help but feel especially homesick even before I got back on the plane again.
Everything about going home just felt so surreal, being in my own bed, seeing my old bedroom in my parents house and all of the things that I left behind, not to mention the hometown that used to be apart of my everyday life. It’s crazy to think that now that I live in Paris, none of that is in my routine anymore. Going home to Ireland felt so nostalgic and so bittersweet and the time went by so quickly it almost feels like I dreamt it.
Two Outfits, Two Cities
There can be no denying the fact that living between the fashion capital of the world and the colorful streets of Dublin has had a serious influence over my sense of style. While fashion in Paris typically tends to be more classical, revolving around basics pieces and signature items, Dublin street style is a lot more daring and eccentric.
Today I thought I would put together two outfits, one in Dublin and one in Paris to show the contrast between these two unique cities.
