Ted Baker Autumn Winter Collection

Summer time in Ireland is always a bit hit and miss but this year more than ever, even though we didn't get the worse weather it just seems to have flown by. Now that we are in the last few days of August our priorities have severely changed from planning holidays and outfits to focusing on appropriate work wear and college attire. I for one love Autumn. I love knitted jumpers, hot chocolate beside the fire and watching the X Factor curled up in a cozy blanket. But my favourite part of all is Autumn fashion. 

As I was browsing online looking at the latest trends I of course had to check out Ted Baker's A/W collection. I have always been a fan of Ted Baker and my love for the brand grows more over time. As I was browsing I stumbled across the Ted Baker Botanical Trail Collection  exclusive to John Lewis. I thought the collection was beautiful and I love how floral's were brought into this autumn collection. It has that perfect autumnal vibe that we all want in out A/W wardrobe but adding floral's in deep navy and oxblood makes it the perfect collection for people like me who aren't quite ready to let go of summer. I always like to take inspiration from latest collections while staying true to my own sense of style and this is another reason why I love Ted Baker they always have the perfect blush, creams, whites and grey's in luxury knitwear which work very well in the winter wardrobe. 

Here are just a few of my favourites from the collection: 

As you can see no matter what season it is blush and cream always have a way of making it into my wardrobe. What are your favourite wardrobe staples for autumn winter? 

Yours Stylishly

#KindBloggerBoss Breakfast With Cocoa Brown

On Thursday morning I along with some of Ireland's leading bloggers attended the #KindBloggerBoss Breakfast with Cocoa Brown in Penney's headquarters in Dublin city center. The breakfast was to celebrate the launch of the newest products of the Cocoa Brown beauty line - Cocoa Brown Kind Shampoo & Conditioner .  As with all new Cocoa Brown products there is always a lot of excitement before the big reveal and this time it was no different.

From reading my blog you will already know that I have loved Cocoa Brown from day one and Marissa Carter has been the biggest inspiration for me. As those of you who work in the beauty industry will know that it is a very competitive industry and can be very tough at times but seeing people like Marissa Carter build such a high quality brand from the ground up is incredible and such motivation for me. She really is a girl boss and a kind one at that. Not forgetting her wonderful team Stephanie and Kate who were also at the event. These girls are so hard working and from speaking to them and following them on social media you can tell that they genuinely love the brand.

Throughout the breakfast we chatted about all things beauty, business and blogging related which I really enjoyed. I love meeting people working in the same industry as me who are so successful in what they do. It is such a breath of fresh air to meet people who are so passionate about their own careers, who are so positive and believe that anything is possible. We took loads of selfies and had lots of giggles before we sadly had to say goodbye to the beautiful interiors of Penney's headquarters. 

Make sure to keep an eye on my blog over the next few weeks as I will be sharing all of  my thoughts about the Cocoa Brown Kind Shampoo & Conditioner

How To Style The Biker Jacket

Image c/o Pinterest

The 'Biker Jacket' has always been a classic for both men and women and for this autumn/winter the trend is just as popular. Although styles do change throughout the seasons the basics are always the same. When I was younger I never considered myself cool enough to own or wear a biker jacket. But what I have learnt that when buying into the latest trends it is still possible to hold on to your own sense of style. My instagram feed has been full of this look as of late which makes it really difficult to avoid this trend. The more I see it the more I love it and would consider this piece the perfect wardrobe staple for autumn/winter 2016.

The Biker Jacket 

The Biker Jacket itself can be the finishing touch to any outfit. Giving a simple outfit some edge, while also keeping the outfit classic with its structured tailoring and clean cut details. Channeling your inner Kate Moss or Kendal Jenner you will be ticking all of the most stylish boxes. 

The Pussy Bow

I for one love the pussy bow trend and was delighted when I saw that it was coming back with a bang this autumn/winter. It is sophisticated and feminine but can look super cool styled with a black biker jacket

Super Skinny Jeans 

I love a good pair of well fitted super skinny jeans styled with any outfit but especially this pair as they help to elongate your legs, styled with a pussy bow blouse and a black biker jacket it is the perfect outfit for a shopping trip, coffee or cocktails with friends or even for date night. 

The Perfect Shoes 

Whether you are a flats or heels kind of girl this outfit will go perfectly with both. For day time my favourite shoe of choice would have to be the Valentino Rockstud Ballerina Flats and for night time the infamous Gianvito Rossi Plexi Pumps. Both pairs of these shoes remain firmly on my wish list. 

Saint Laurent Monogram Shoulder Bag 

Another luxury item on my wish list is the Saint Laurent Monogram Shoulder Bag. It is such a classic and will go with almost any outfit. It is also perfect for both day and night. 


What outfit is complete without a pair of sunglasses. Sunglasses have been a must have accessory for me as of late not only for the sunny weather but to be worn as a hair band to keep my hair out of my face. I love this look. The Celine Shadow Sunglasses are the perfect choice in my opinion as they go with a number or outfits and with the black and tortoise shell colouring they are perfect for bringing outfits together.  

Have you bought you 'Biker Jacket' yet? If so how are you styling it?

Best Dressed Lady At Halo

Galway Race Week gets bigger every single year and this year was no exception. From twitterinstagramfacebook and of course snap chat (username: kerrieanneburke) I was constantly updated on all the action. Galway really does know how to hold a celebration. Unfortunately I was very busy with work that week but the one event that I was able to attend made up for all that I was missing. 

I was kindly invited as a VIP blogger to Halo which is a nightclub located in Galway's city center right in the middle of all of the excitement. The event I was invited to was called 'Dress To Impress'. It was the night of Ladies Day at the races so it really gave the day something a little extra. Our invitation stated that we were to arrive to the event at 9:30 but a bunch of the blogger girls and guys decided to meet up for cocktails and a catch up before the event began. 

We decided to meet in the Bite Club which is another cool venue just a few doors away from Halo so it was the perfect location. The Bite Club is really cool and has an American style diner vibe. We stayed there for a little while catching up and sipping on slushies before it was time for the main event.    

On arrival to Halo we were greeted by our hostess who then brought us to Halo's VIP Area. We were then served glasses of prosecco and treated like royalty for the entire night. The staff are always so friendly. The event kicked off with our blogger friend Laura Fox and special quest Roz Purcell judging the 'Best Dressed Lady'. Our excitement grew when Ruth from The Beauty Kemple got chosen as a deserving finalist.
