How to wear floral RN

With spring collections finally hitting down, it’s easy to get swept away with all the new season gorge looks. However, as we know from  ya know , exisitin’ RN it’s COLD A.F.  which means all of our cute Spring looks have been put on ice. Literally.  Fear not however, as we’ve come up with a handy guide to rocking new season florals now.

The trick is? Dare to layer. A simple polo neck worn under a cute floral dress and teamed with ankle boots is a total winner . For seriously cool 90’s vibes, why not layer your floral dress over a thin knit and team with a biker jacket and clunky boots. A chunky knit can transform a floral dress into a cute skirt simply by layering over it. Or if you’re feelin’ v adventurous, layer a button down floral dress over some ripped skinny jeans and biker boots for a hella grunge look!

LOVE IS A LIE & these celeb break ups tell us why.

5. PETE WENTZ & ASHLEE SIMPSON :
Like an EMO Posh & Becks ,  our lives were complete when ~rock chick ~ Ashlee married the abso gorge pop punk Pete ( c’mon who didn’t have a crush on him? Guyliner n ‘ all)  Their split sent us into a downward spiral in the form of many Avril Lavigne ballads while vowing to never believe in love again. 

4. BELLA HADID & THE WEEKND  :
Ok we were obsessed with this relaysh. The STYLE game alone from this unbelievably cool couple was absolute goals, slaying every single party & papp shot in sight. While we were devo by the split & shook by the infamous 2016 VS runway moment, sources are reporting the two have been ‘hanging out’ again – we’re admittedly getting our own hopes up for a stunning relationship rekindle!


3. RACHEL MCADAMS & RYAN GOSLING :
One of Hollywood’s most iconic couples for sure, I mean remember thaaat MTV Movie Awards KISS?! As if they didn’t melt our hearts into puddles enough on screen in The Notebook, they totally killed us with couple goals IRL too. We’re obvs delighted both of them are happily moved on & loved up now – plus we can always rewatch The Notebook if ever missing those early 2000s times.

2. BRAD & JEN :
We know it’s V UN-WOKE to be #teamjen in 2018 – after all it was Brad who was married and these women are successful , powerful and not just pawns for the world to PITT
( sorry!) against each other. HOWEVER, we will always fondly remember the golden era of Friends-mania,. A time when Brad & Jen were the perf couple who not only slayed the red carpet together, but delivered one of the best Friend’s scenes  :

1.BRITNEY & JUSTIN:  
Ok Ok hear me out. I know this was a life time ago , and he’s since married one of Hollywood’s  biggest babes and killer actress Jessica Biel (  legit #couplegoals)  and she’s literally become Queen of Las Vegas with her residency, but looking @ old pics of Britney & JT still stings. No one could rock a co ord look quite like them , and our early 00’s hear still pines for a reunion. Or at the very least a killer track they both feature on.

Dry Jan ? These 5 tips will keep you from going totally cray!

January – the Monday-ist month of the year. Broke, bloated and totally partied out? Its time to grab the fleece PJs & avoid any social commitments ( brunch? Oh sorry, I can’t make it – I’m SO swamped … uhhh washing my hair. ) So if you’re looking for things to keep you sane during this bleak, grey month, here’s our top 5 tips to get you from this  ….
to this…

1.Netflix is LIFE. 
Over the last few years Netflix has wormed its way into our lives, starting out as a casual habit and quickly becoming our number 1 Bae. But this month? It’s our literal lifeline.
And what better time for a Friends re-watch binge. Since it was added this month, we here @ Dresses.ie HQ have watched about 150 episodes… could we BE any more obsessed?

2. Bumble that shizz. 
Just ’cause you’re at home with a face full of sudocreme and hair like a crow’s nest doesn’t mean you can’t be ‘social’ .  January is the busiest month for online dating, so now’s the time to line up some dates or at the very least indulge in some harmless flirty texts.
3. Learn how to cook..
My heart says Justeat – my bank balance says – learn how to cook! Youtube is our new BFF when it comes to cooking ideas & recipes. We particularly L-O-V-E The Happy Pear’s channel so many easy, affordable and DAMN tasty recipes! Time to up your food game we think!

4. Give your Spotify a glam make over. 
From gym playlists, to the perfect pre game tunes, now’s the time to de-clutter and re do your Spotify. Release your inner DJ and create a playlist for every type of situation. Chilled Sunday Mornings? How’s about some Kygo. Boy got you down? Dua Lipa to the rescue! Need some Monday morning sass – Oh hay Cardi B! This is the month to tackle this task, your future self will thank you!

5. #selfcare
We know , we know. It’s SUCH a “new year new me” cliche to run out and join a Gym on January 1st – BUT hear me out. At home yoga is free ( THANK YOU YOUTUBE ) and can be the perfect way to wind down after a stressful day of trying to avoid the left over celebrations and deal with fuzzy hair courtesy of our fabulous rain. Channels such as Yoga with Adriene offer a gorge selection of super easy to more advanced lessons. Or, what better way to #selfcare than with a face mask,  bubble bath and a big fat G&T? Whatever floats your boat, January is the perfect ‘me’ month so indulge!

You got this, Gal xoxo

And the winners of 2017 are….

EXTRA moment of the year :
Queen B offish broke the internet back in February with the announcement of her pregnancy via the most ICONIC and possibly copied image of the year. Draped in fabric and surrounded flowers this took extra to a whole new level & we LOVED it.

BAE of the year :
Ariana Grande won all of our hearts after the tragic incidents of Manchester. From her compassion shown to the victims and their families to the amazing One Love concert she organized and fronted , this is one seriously strong gal and that’s why she’s our bae of the year!


Squad of the year :
Not only are the Riverdale gang total babes ( can we date the guys and be BFF’s with the girls PLEASE?) but their off screen friendship is absolute squad goals. From hanging out at Coachella to being each others biggest insta supporters, we are in love!


Anthem of the year :
Dua Lipa schooled us all with her New Rules.  How many of us have had to sing it to one of our gals as they tried to send a dodgy 3am whatsapp to a tragic hook up?
So thank you Dua Lipa from saving so many of us from terrible F*** boy mistakes!

Beauty HERO of the year :
Just when you thought you’d had your fill of celebs releasing lip kits and beauty lines, Fenty Beauty comes along and answers all of your make up prayers in one swoop. Their stunning range of foundation colours, mixed with the most gorge packaging and just enough Rihanna swag had us all rushing out on day one to do damage to our bank accounts!

Couple goals of the year :
This has not been a great year for celeb couples. (TBH Chris Pratt and Anna Faris’s split still has us SHOOK ) So when the engagement announcement that everyone was waiting for came along, we couldn’t help jump on the love train and obsess over the frankly , adorable images of Prince Harry & our new style crush Meghan Markle! Just in time for Christmas too! It’s a festive love fest!
MEME Queen of the year:
There wasn’t a situation that couldn’t be summed up using a Gemma Collins gif / meme / screengrab. Her status has rocketed this year and we are nothing short of obsessed with her and her candy!
Heart breaker of the year :
Who didn’t have their hearts broken by Dustin in the final scene of Stranger Things season 2? ** SPOILER ALERT ** After his Steve-over ( I wonder how much hairspray they had to use?!) he was left crying in the bleachers when no girl would dance with him. Cut to Nancy asking him to dance and the CUTEST scene on TV this year :

FASH moment of the year:
When Donatella reunited the original squad for a tribute to her brother Gianni, we knew we were witnessing something special. Draped in gold and looking as fire as they did in the 90’s Carla Bruni, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Helena Christensen rocked Milan and kind of broke the internet. ( Sorry Kim, hun !)

LOL of the year :
The world gained another hero this year. Little Marion who bust her way into the spotlight by interrupting her dad’s BBC interview in the most adorable, hilarious way possible.

Marion, we salute you!

Who were your 2017 winners?!
