Charmed by Dublin (to be sure, to be sure)

Back in town after our city break in Dublin, feeling relaxed, refreshed and ready for the week ahead.

A quick outfit post from Friday (can't remember the reason for the pout... potentially a grumpy morning face?)
(Dress- Witchery; Scarf- Tsumori Chisato; Boots- Acne; Tights- Tabio)

Clumsily drawing your attention to the floral-on-floral combination. You can't see that detail of this scarf but it is huge when unfurled and has a really simple, graphic image in the centre, framed by tiny liberty print blossoms. I fell in love with it when I bought it in Japan a few years back.

These tights always divide opinion. When I was boarding the plane on Friday night, the steward scanning in the tickets apologised to me 'in case I thought he was staring at my legs' and explained he was actually looking at the previous passengers' rolling suitcase. I hadn't thought he was staring at my legs. His embarrassment made it clear that he had been. Or perhaps wasn't staring any more as he had been temporarily blinded by the acid brightness of the tights...

Saturday outfit, a melange of prints and textures for exploring the town.

General itinerary: hearty fry up for breakfast; morning trawl around the vintage stores in Temple Bar area (Perk Up!, Jean Cronin, the Fluorescent Elephant and the Loft Market are highly recommended); obligatory trip to the Guinness Brewery; late lunch at Leo Burdock's (amazing fish and chips); afternoon snooze (the height of indulgence in my book- blissful); bar crawl in the evening (my fave was the Exchequer- spectacular 'Gingerbread Jack' cocktails ); possibly MacDonald's and Burger King after that (I know. I know. So bad, but so good).

(Flannel checked shirt- Uniqlo; Vest- Vintage from Tokyo; Skirt- Vintage from Copenhagen; Boots- Acne; Tights- Tabio)

A close up so you can see the pattern on the knitted vest- was glad I thought to pack the flannel shirt and woollen vest as it was chilly in the city, especially when walking by the Jiffey River.

I love this skirt- a proud vintage bargain. The flowers look like they've been hand-painted onto the skirt as the print has a slightly grainy quality, the colours are a little muted and you can see the brush strokes.

Will post a few more pics of the trip tomorrow.

Hope you had an excellent weekend too?
