On the Island

I wore this outfit on a little excursion Andrew and I took with some friends to the smallest of the three Aran Islands, Inisheer. We took a ferry to the island off the coast of Galway and had a lot of fun exploring the beautiful landscape all day.

To stay warm, I made use of layers (two thermals underneath my shirt, as well as double tights!) and decided to get creative by layering one of my favorite lace pieces over my chambray top. If I was still living in LA, I would have worn the lace top underneath and thrown my chambray over like this. However, the cold Irish weather has encouraged me to be more experimental with my outfit choices and try new things to stay warm and fashionable. On top of that, I have noticed that layering collared shirts under clothing is really popular in Ireland, so this outfit is definitely inspired by the local style.
Stay tuned for more pictures from my island adventure!


  1. i think it looks cute layered "backwards!" i also like how your brown boots look with black tights.

  2. I have to echo a commenter on a previous post : Your pictures remind me of P.S. I Love You. I love the way you've styled the lace with the chambray. You're getting a taste of what the weather is like where I live, and I'm soaking up your layering inspiration while you're in Ireland! I also really love that you're taking cues from the locals. I think that's a brilliant idea.

  3. thanks for such a thoughtful comment! I'm glad I can provide a little layering inspiration, seeing as I'm taking so much inspiration from everything around me here! also, you are both right about P.S. I love you...I definitely want to re-watch it now!
