July Must Haves

This month we have carefully selected some standout pieces (translation: absolute must haves) which are as hot as the sunny weather we’ve been graced with recently.  Each item will be a unique addition to your wardrobe or boudoir that will see you leading the pack in the stylish stakes.

Lap it all up for cheaper everywhere you go too, for it is sales season after all.

1. Candy Floss coloured nail polish

Warmer weather manicures and pedicures are sporting different shades of pink this month. Rachel Zoe, stylist to the likes of Nicole Richie and Jennifer Garner, tweeted the other day that “my shade preference for the summer is. OPI’ “Bubble Bath” (Candy Pink) coloured nail varnish, $8.50”.

If you can’t get your mits on the OPI brand, try Ruby & Millie’s Candy floss-coloured nail polish from Boots (€11). 

2. Hat, H&M, €8

Remember Johnny Depp in Benny & June? He wore this fantastic hat which has seen a comeback this summer. Just in time for Oxegen festival this weekend, we found a lookalike in H&M for €8! What a steal.

3. Kenneth Jay Lane, Crystal stone ring, €58

Sales, sales and more sales. The summer sales are in full swing, and although we get stressed with the chaos in the shops and have learned to restrain from picking up a dress for €10 “just because its  a bargain”.

We simply love our costume jewellery, so we’re delighted when we found this attention-grabbing cocktail ring which is reduced by 60% in the Net-a-Porter summer sale. It’s the perfect option to add a dramatic flourish to even the simplest ensemble.

You can also pick up Kenneth Jay Lane’s fabulous jewellery in Cocobelle, Royal Hibernian Way, Dublin 2.

4. Wedge Wellies £35 (€40)

Not going for a pair of Hunters for this years festivals, but still would like some funky wellies with extra height? Try these giraffe print wellingtons with wedge heels from www.wedgewelly.co.uk which also come in a number of designs as well as block colours like black and green too.

Holly Willoughby is a fan, as is Jordan who was papped at the Badminton Horse Trials wearing a pink pair called “Candy girl”.

5. Vitamin E Hand & Nail Treatment, The Body Shop, €12

This is a miraculous cream for hands and nails. Until recently, I was not one for manicured nails, but this was recommended to me by my friend Heidi from Cleansheets.ie and I went from having neglected nails to having strong, long nails in 3 weeks applying twice daily, morning and evening. Even the nail technician commented on their condition while she manicured them into perfection!
