Trans-seasonal Trickiness!

Today I had intended to post my first Summer Fashion post of 2016..............Hmmmmmmmmm! What a mistake that would have been . I woke up this morning and within minutes it started SNOWING!! Yes, the curse of Irish weather and its ability to constantly surprise and usually not in a good way.

So, today I've decided to tackle the tricky topic of what to wear trans-seasonal?

My solution to this dilemma is COLOUR and plenty of it. If you have to  "Cosy Up" pre May at least do it with as much rainbow hues as possible.

The second trick to tackle the freezing freakiness is LAYERING.  Layering is your friend during those Seasons when the weather simply refuses to play fair.

With the help of multiple layers you can simple remove or "add to" as needs be. I've compiled a few looks that I think are warm and cosy but still give a hint to the colour and vibrancy of Summer to come............  I hope you are inspired in some way by them.

This vintage look was inspired by layering a vintage coat over a calf length knitted geometric dress.

This great dress has a very vintage 1930's feel and accessorised with the Raspberry Beret and scarf make it more so.

My love for the 1930's fashion era was greatly influenced by my love for the movie "Bonnie and Clyde" which was set in the 1930's but made in  1967 and starred Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. It was Miss Dunaway's amazing wardrobe throughout the movie that had a lasting and inspirational effect on me. Have a peek here.

Her amazing wardrobe consisted of knee length skirts ,great tank tops and her trade mark Beret.  She worked this look with true style throughout the movie that complimented her sleek blonde bob.Her cool vibe has had a timeless influence among the more discerning fashionista's.
