We are delighted to have Meggan from the super cool blog Cardigan Jezebel as this months featured blogger.  Meggan is a 20 something American living in Cork with a penchant for cats, make-up and stationery.  Meggan has chosen three quirky yet easy to wear summer looks that will give you major styling inspiration.


Hello people of the internet! Today, I want to share some fashion ideas that define Summer for me. I’ve picked out some outfits for a casual day, a great night out, and even the beach. I have to say, Opera Lane is the first place I go to when I’m on the hunt for inspiration. I could spend ages wandering around shops like New Look, River Island, and Topshop (with an occassional stop at Starbucks for refueling). Each outfit I’ve picked out has come from one of these stores. One of my favorite things about Opera Lane; you can visit any store and find the perfect outfit.



riverisland casual

All River Island

Body Suit – €30 Shorts – €35 Jacket – €65 Bag – €40 Shoes – €55


Nothing says Summer like bright colors! I think this outfit is perfect for a stroll around town or even brunch. Each item works together to create a memorable outfit. Or, you could take any one of these items into your normal wardobe for a killer boost.



Night Out

topshop going out

All Topshop

Dress – €40 Jacket – €60 Bag – €42 Earrings – €13 Shoes – €80


Topshop is hands down my favorite shop on Opera Lane. Everything has an edge or a quirkiness to it. I think this outfit has a touch of everything I love about the store in it.

Beach Day

New Look Beach Day

All New Look

Bathing Suit – €29.99 Shoes – €22.99 Bag – €24.99


We’ve been so lucky with the weather lately that I’ve actually been contemplating buying a bathing suit. This one-piece from New Look is so cute I wouldn’t even dare put a cover-up over it. Pair it with a great pair of sandals and you’re ready to hit the Beach!




Now, get shopping!
