The Irish population remains the most admirable when booking our summer holidays. I say this because despite the country’s unpredictable weather, every year we decide with the utmost good faith to holiday in the most picturesque seaside locations on the island… Unfortunately, we can never fully trust the weather report which causes chaos when deciding what to pack! We do hate to see all the gorgeous flowy and floral outfits go to waste because of a bit of typical, unpredictable Irish weather.
With all that being said, we have gathered some Irish holiday essentials which will be sure to see you through whatever the weather and keep you looking fabulous and holiday ready!
Of course, the central piece of any holiday ought to be the swimwear… And with the wave of cold water swimming on the rise, there are no excuses now. Take the plunge!
1. Our Papaya ICHI swimsuit is one of our shop faves
Shop Our swimsuit range here:
For all those hardy enough to bear the elements we also recommend the cutest and most comfortable co-ord to warm up in while you sip hot chocolates by the beach! The Carla & Gwen fluffy joggers and hoodie from Indie & Moi will keep you looking fab. We love these pieces together however the versatile set can be worn separately and paired with blue denim jeans/shorts or a plain white Tee.
5. The perfect summer dress
For this essential piece, we choose Zilch’s Flowerfield dress.
Using breathable and environmentally conscious fabrics, we choose this lightweight floral maxi dress as our outright winner. We love this chic, buttoned-up, collared look along with a sinched-in waist to give a simple and attractive silhouette. The ideal day-to-night summer dress.
This year why not swap out the light jumper for a denim jacket instead?
Not only do you get to display your lovely blouse or dress but you can also wear a light jumper underneath this staple piece.
Our Cherry Paris Bogata jacket is slightly oversized making it a handy and fashionable piece to wear during the day or when dining out. Search ‘denim jackets’ on our site to view our entire selection.
7. The Reversible Seasalt Raincoat:
This nautical-style raincoat gives us all the seaside inspiration Not only is it reversible (Yes that means it has inside pockets too!), it is waterproof up to 3000mm which is suitable for mild-moderate rain and has a rating of 3000g breathability. It is well-suited to the Irish summer weather. We also love that it’s recycled from plastic bottles!!
