OUTFIT | Urban Boho at Navy Pier, Chicago

Dress - American Eagle
Sunglasses - American Eagle
Shoes - Converse

And so, the holiday outfit posts begin to roll in! 

On Monday, myself and the clan flew across the Atlantic to the Windy City, and that feels like yonks ago, as we have done a ton since then! From baseball games and food tours to shops, shops, shops and art museums, we have shopped, ate, and explored around so much that it's hard for me to believe we have only completed visiting one location out of four we have planned! 

Today we have arrived at Niagra Falls, the Canadian side (it's my first time in Canada and I must say the money notes are so pretty), after the past few days in Chicago. The weather did not welcome us with bright spells, but rather rain, and lots more rain. Like Ireland! Despite the dreariness, we did look and have admire the waterfalls (for a brief amount of time). They're magnificent!

Okay, now back on track! I wore this gorgeous maxi dress on Tuesday in Chicago when we went for an evening stroll on Navy Pier - the sunshine, the lake water, the Dippin' Dots and Emily snapping pictures of me (and filming... shhh) made me feel summery and fashion blogger-y as we walked with Chicago's skyline in view! I love the slit in the dress, and while the pattern is eye-catching it is simple and stylish.

I bought the maxi that day actually, when I was browsing in American Eagle in Water Tower Place. I picked up the cute floral sunglasses there too (I have bought loads of bits and pieces so far from lots of shops, so will definitely do a haul when I return). As of that day, I had no better shoes than my black converse to finish off my bohemian look (I only brought two pairs of shoes with me on holiday as I was in bad need of more decent pairs - sandals especially - which I have now found - and what better place to shop than on holidays?). Even though the sneakers didn't fit the vibe, I went with it and decided I was sporting an Urban
Boho style!

In other news, I've uploaded my first YouTube video! I'd love it if you could like the video and subscribe to my channel. There's plenty more videos to come, including lookbooks and vlog type videos of my holiday (yes, that includes this outfit!).

Stay tuned here for more outfits from Chicago and soon other places I'm visiting! My Instagram has been full of photos from my trip too, so make sure to follow it. 

On a last note, I'm so happy America has legalised same sex marriage. #LoveWins <3

OUTFIT | We're All Living the Good Life, Whether it's Hail, Rain or it's Sunshine

Crop Top - Bershka
Shirt - American Eagle 
High Waisted Jeans - Bershka
Shoes - Converse

In hail, rain or sunshine I would have gone to The Script's concert in Croke Park. On the evening of June 20th, Ireland did decide to have some sunshine, and those conditions were what I favoured more!

Hi! I'm back to blogging as I have finished my Junior Cert... finally!! Hopefully I'll even be back to better, and more frequent, blogging for this summer and Transition Year, and the future I guess! 

In celebration of the ending of the exams, I went out last Thursday night with friends, but also on Saturday ventured to Croke Park to see The Script perform. The Script have been a firm favourite of mine for quite a while now, my first song to love being "The Man Who Can't be Moved". They're still just a small Irish band to me, but they sold out Croke Park and live streamed their performance, and that amazed me. They put on a fantastic show!

For my outfit of the night, I opted for a summery look with a bright crop top and shirt put together with high waisted jeans. The concert look was complete with my sports luxe converse. My makeup contrasted the clothes, as I created a bronze smokey eye with a pop of green - in honour of The Script's Irish nature of course. Despite the clashing colours, I believed my makeup and outfit did my concert spirit justice.

If you'd like to see how and what I used for my makeup, then make sure to subscribe to my new YouTube channel as I will be uploading my first video soon!

I'm heading out to America tomorrow with my family for two weeks; we'll be visiting Chicago and Niagra Falls, as well as Ontario and Toronto in Canada; I'm all packed and ready to go and have another adventure! I'll hopefully get to blog, and I will for sure take lots of photos of places and outfits. What I'm most thrilled for is shopping, shopping, and even more shopping!
