Describe your style in three words: Funky, wearable, comfy.

How long does it take you to get dressed in the morning?

20 minutes max.

Fashion or function — which word best describes your attitude to clothes and why? Fashion dies but function always lives.

Who or what is Ireland’s greatest undiscovered gem?

Elizabeth Christina Designs — a Cork milliner with stunning designs and a unique style.

What’s your biggest source of style inspiration?

People-watching, particularly at airports.

Where do you like to shop?

Cork and Kerry shops, and I always support Irish designers when I can.

Why does your style/outfit work?

I mix old with new: The jacket is over 10 years old and I’ve worn the skirt to death, both casually and as formal wear.
