Evening Out: Guinness Brewery
What better way to celebrate a night out than in an outfit inspired by the beer you’re drinking? The Guinness Brewery is just one of many reasons to imbibe in Ireland, since they give you beer for free. Start with a subtle beer drinker tank top, and add a high-waisted golden skirt. The golden slingbacks match your skirt and are comfortable enough to stand in all night. A faux fur cropped jacket matches the walls of the factory and keeps you warm and stylish. Finish off the look with a black metallic clutch just big enough for your bare essentials, and some accessories: a beer charm (try putting it on a charm bracelet) and a piano necklace for the harp that is Guinness’ logo. Just make sure photos of your night don’t end up on the internet. So not classy.
Internship Outfit: Ha’Penny Bridge
This week’s internship outfit is inspired by the Ha’Penny Bridge, known as such for the price of the toll it used to charge. The bridge is white, so start your outfit with a plain white button-down, paired with a pencil skirt the cover of the river below. The pumps and the tote are work-appropriate and in tune with two major spring trends: pointy shoes and color-blocking. Don’t forget the accessories! We chose a striped scarf for the bridge’s pattern, sun earrings for its decorative lamps, and a coin necklace for the name.
Casual Outfit: Dublin Castle
Dublin Castle has seen its fair share of fires, so start your outfit with a pair of trendy crimson jeans. A grey tank top matches the castle’s outer facade and is tame enough to balance the metallic tweed blazer, which pays tribute to the castle’s gold interior. The library contains over 22,000 volumes, but the book-related item here is very American: earrings inspired by Dr. Seuss’ Cat In The Hat. This is the perfect outfit to study for midterms with, so slip on some easy-to-walk-in black Converse, and tuck your books into a bag that complements the bright jacket. Now, off to the library!
