Florals for Spring…Groundbreaking

While florals for spring may not exactly be a groundbreaking idea, we can’t help but love them (sorry, Miranda Priestly). Right on cue, we spotted this quirky, floral print dress on Holly Willoughby’s Instagram page this morning.

Holly’s Victorian style number is from Kate Middleton’s favourite store, L.K.Bennett and is priced at a purse-busting €445. 

The good news is, our favourite brands are dropping their SS19 collections right now, so stealing Holly’s style without the celebrity price tag is cinch!

Tulips, roses, daisies: whatever your vibe, here are some fabulous floral dresses we’re currently craving. 

Stylishly yours,

Style Inspiration: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is one of my style icons; I just adore everything she wears. She is so effortless, yet always managed to nail it.

91efb155e1e49c1ceac7bb0f6feb170c

Her style is simple and low key yet she always looks so incredibly stylish. Her off duty ‘go to’ look seems to be skinny jeans, heels and a loose t-shirt; so effortless.

68b8942c0f6e8e4a49b21509abbe93f5It does help when you are a Victoria’s Secret model and have a body like hers; pretty much anything would look great on her. Let’s take a moment to appreciate some of her best street style looks:

Most Stylish Women 2014

10. Miriam O’Callaghan

Heaven knows how the TV presenter and Mum of eight (yes 8) always manages to be dressed immaculately. Never short of a classic dress and smart casual off duty style Miriam is one of the most stylish ladies gracing our TV screens. Check out some of Miriam’s best looks this year.

9. Taylor Swift

In her 25 years Taylor has become quite the fashionista. The singer songwriter always remains true to get own unique style which often includes cute dresses and pumps, denim separates and converse. I am loving her twist on the classic red carpet dress below.

8. Kathryn Thomas

The Carlow native has had an impressive year in the style stakes. Never afraid of trying something a little edgy and accompanying it with a smokey eye, Kathryn has earned a spot on this list.

7. Pippa O’Connor

Pippa is one of Ireland’s leading models and owner of her blog (pippa.ie) Pippa’s casual style and love of all things high street make her looks easily accessible to all. See some of her looks below.

The Blind Side actress and daughter of the english musician Phil Collins created quite a stir at the ‘Love Rosie’ movie premier, in an exquisite ombre gown (see below). Her effortless sense of style is evident from her mix of casual and formal looks.

3. Suki Waterhouse

At only 22, the model and actress’s grunge fashion sense continues to impress. From androgynous suits and ornate gowns Suki is certainly not afraid to push the boundaries and for that we applaud her.

2. Olivia Palermo

I think we will always remember Olivia’s wedding to German model Johannes Huebl this year. If you need a reminder check out The Style Fairy’s blog – Our Favourite Brides of 2014 here. Besides from being one of the most beautifully original brides of 2014 Olivia continues to be one of the most stylish socialites.
