Guest post from Long Distance Loving

The bird and I are off to Nice today!

So today, Alison from Long Distance Loving is gracing us with a guest post! She always has the best fashion boards! Thank you, Alison!

Hi there! My name is Alison--and I'm the blogger behind {long distance loving}. Jessica asked me to fill in for her while she and Matt escape to the south of France for their anniversary weekend. I pulled together this chic getaway ensemble, which would be perfect for a night out on the town!

Weekend Recap of Cologne

Happy Monday!

The bird and I spent this past weekend in Cologne, Germany. He had a work conference for a couple days and we spent an extra couple days there exploring the city.

Here are some pics from my iPhone:
Cologne was beautiful! There were so many different areas to explore, including the Rhine River, fashion district, Cologne Cathedral and the Belgian Quarter.

We even got our first mini taste of Oktoberfest (even though Munich is the real host of Oktoberfest).

I hope you had a great weekend!

Transition into Fall

It has officially transitioned into fall in Dublin. It's colder, windier and darker already. Time to bring the fall and winter clothes back out: boots, scarves and lots of layers.

And what better place to look than Pinterest for some fabulous fall inspiration?
 one / two / three / four

Here are some of my fall favorites:

I may not be ready for fall's cooler weather, but if it means all of these items hanging in my closet... I'm in!

Have a great weekend!

Weekend recap

We had a fun-filled weekend over here!

As I mentioned on Friday, Laura and I went to a fun fashion event in Dublin. You can see Laura's recap here. The event was called the Ultimate Girls Day out and was filled with pampering, fashion shows and retail therapy.
We were even lucky enough to walk home with some fun prizes! Such a fun and much needed girls day!

The bird and I also went out for a little date night at Roly's. Love discovering new spots in the city.
How was your Labor Day weekend??
