Summer evenings

There is something so enchanting and magical that comes with the sun setting on a summer evenings. I don’t think I will ever get tired of seeing the sky transition from a blue to a warm orange as the sun slowly removes from sight and the moon appears once again like clockwork. The last few days have been so lovely that I have been even praising Irish weather (which is very rare if you know Irish rain!) and have been basking in the sunlight as much as I can while dressing as summery as I dare. Ireland never gets particularly warm so my leather jacket has been my partner in crime these last few days which has been so much fun. I love finding new outfits to style around a leather jacket and have unquestionably made good use of my wardrobe this week.

I don’t typically wear a lot of stripes which is why when I found this top discarded at the back of my wardrobe I knew I had to incorporate it into an outfit. I am a person that likes to get as much wear as I can out of an item of clothing so I was determined to bring this top back into rotation. This outfit is the embodiment of cool summer days and is a great option for when there is a bit of a cool bite in the air. The top was quite a light material so the leather jacket provided enough warmth without being suffocating. The leather jacket in a mauve colour also gave the outfit a bit of a colour injection which I think it needed for the summery vibe that I have been styling lately. While I am smitten for black leather jackets, I am so delighted that I bought this jacket in a more unique colour so it could be worn for moments precisely like these!

I cannot explain to you all how inspired I am by the summer, there is so much motivation that the weather brings me that I have so been enjoying exploring my wardrobe. Nothing describes the feelings of finding old pieces in your wardrobe that have long been forgotten. With that in mind I urge you all to rifle through your wardrobe and uncover long forgotten pieces that no doubt will become favourites in all your wardrobes!
