Fur me Fabulous

Fur is huge this season! Whether you choose to do just a pom pom keyring or a Cruella da Ville inspired jacket, there are so many ways to fluff up your outfit! I have lusted over Charlotte Simone's kitsch insta feed the last few months (think fruit loops inspired scarves!), but if her Popsicles are out of your budget, head over to the high street where you are guaranteed to find some furry gems. I have added two new stoles and a fluffy pom pom key ring that I am going to use as a bag charm to my winter wardrobe and I think a fur clutch is now in order too...

Are you just as fabulously obsessed with fur as me? These are my top picks-

Pop of Neon

So, a few weekends ago I decided to base two very different outfits (but with an all black errthang theme...) around my neon clutch. Black is such a staple colour of my wardrobe- I undeniably feel the most comfortable in this colour! However, a pop of colour is sometimes needed- and this neon clutch was just that!

The weekend was pure bliss! It was spent with friends (we unintentionally all wore black and white lol!) on the Saturday afternoon gossiping about life in one of my favourite local cafes in Meath 'The Donkey Shed'. Saturday evening saw myself and Ev with a bottle of Prosecco, some cheeky sticky toffee pudding and us finally starting Season three of Homeland. I know I'm a bit late to the Homeland buzz....but I'm slowly but surely making my way through every series on Netflix lol!

Sunday was spent in Dublin City Centre trying out a joint called 3fe- famous for its coffee and very small menu range (there were only three things on the brunch menu which is surprisingly refreshing for a change to not have such a choice!). We got the fish tacos, the corn fritters, the tasting espresso set (one Ethiopian bean, and one Mexican I think!), a chocolate and beetroot cake (yes I said beetroot- it was so moist and delish!) and one scone! It was some of the best brunch I have had in Dublin yet, and not too hard on the wallet! A stroll round grand canal dock and seeing blue skies ended a peaceful weekend! 

What do you like to get up to in Dublin? Have you a gem of a place for brunch? Do you recommend anywhere in Dublin?
