What are you wearing? I’m wearing a t-shirt (€9) and belt from River Island, Rant and Rave jeans (€65) and a cardigan(€44) from Vanilla, Fermoy, Zara pumps (€39) and a DKNY watch (gift). My sparkle studs (€19), Norah necklace (€98) and cuff (€79) and clutch(€79) are all from Stella & Dot.
Describe your style in three words? Simple, relaxed and accessorised.
How long does it take you to get dressed in the morning? Thirty minutes when I have work meetings and about five minutes when I work from home.
Fashion or function — which word best describes your attitude to clothes and why? I like my clothes to look well and as a working mum I need to make sure that my outfits are practical as well as fashionable. To this end, accessorising simple outfits well saves me time and money. My accessories are pure fashion!
What’s your biggest source of style inspiration? I get inspiration from people on the street, magazines and online. I especially like the Irish Fashaholic blog by Emer O’Mahony, TV3’s Xposé and I admit, I do love watching what celebrities wear.
What do you think of Irish street style? It’s eclectic and people on the streets in Cork seem to be less contrived looking and less self-conscious than, say, London for example.
Where do you like to shop? I love TK Maxx as you never know what you’ll discover; Vanilla in Fermoy, Zara, River Island.
Who or what is Ireland’s greatest undiscovered gem? Stella & Dot jewellery and accessories — check out their website — www.stelladot.eu. I am one of their “hobby” stylists; I adore the style and quality of each piece.
Why does your style/outfit work? It’s simple and relaxed and well accessorised. I love white so this season’s white on white is perfect for me! I think the pop of yellow bag and jewellery ties in perfectly.
