August Bank Holiday Outfit Inspiration

July 29, 2019

I always find that the August Bank Holiday comes with hundreds of outfit changes and last minute plans. I even think it’s half the reason I have so much fun! But, I quite like the idea of having plans in place and outfits ready to go…so let’s give this a go!

This year, there are so many things going on around the country on the August Bank Holiday, that it would be a shame to let it pass by. So, whatever your plans may be, I’ve pulled together some of my favourite looks so you can just focus on showing up and having fun!

Swimsuits are all the rage again this year, and I am here for it. Let’s be honest, we need all the insulation we can get to cope with Irish waters! Throw on a cute coverup and pair with natural accessories for a fool proof look.
