My Week On Instagram ❤

I don’t know about any of you but it has been such a busy few week’s with work, writing and catching up on some quiet time. I can’t believe it’s September already! I absolutely love this time of year, Autumn is my favourite season and my official countdown to Halloween is on. As soon as we enter this season I get so excited for my favourite holiday. Last year I was very lucky to spend it in Salem, it was honestly the best experience, I cannot wait to go back within the next year or two.

It has also been a busy week for me over on my Instagram account. I’ve been shopping up a slight storm treating myself to some new make up for Autumn and updating my wardrobe with some new cosy knits and comfortable shoes. I also can’t stop wearing my new wooden watch from  JORD, it’s my favourite new accessory. I also spent last month pretty much signing off from Summer by part taking in some festival adventures at Hozier and UB40. I

Inspirational Blogger || Anouska Proetta Brandon

Anouska Proetta Brandon is an Irish fashion blogger who has made a massive name for herself within the industry. Today there are a lot of bloggers from the green isle who are creating and building a career for themselves following in Anouska’s footsteps. She is one of few who have went beyond the profile of just being a blogger and working with huge names such as: H&M, River Island and Parfois.

Starting up her blog in 2011, she wanted to create an outlet to share her personal style. Today it has transformed into a fashion, lifestyle, travel and photography blog. Basically anything Anouska finds inspirational can be found on her blog and incorporated into her own style in a unique and timeless manner. Her style is definitely described as classic meets chic with basic staples paired alongside bold accessories and sharp structures.

In my opinion, Anouska is the kind of girl who can wear pretty much any look. She has the body shape and confidence to rock a cute demin skater dress (a style that can be hard to pull off) or a full on structured suit. She is 1/2 Irish, 1/4 Spanish and 1/4 Austrian. Her first name is Russian and her second name (Proetta) is Italian, and of course Brandon is Irish. No wonder the girl can wears so many looks with all of these amazing cultures in her blood. Can we also just take a moment to appreciate the simplicity of black lace and a silk scarf?! Absolute perfection!

Did I forget to mention that Anouska has a thing for printed floors?! Yes, you heard, floors. As us bloggers are keen to take inspiration from pretty much all areas of life and decorate our Instagram and blogs with beautiful and unique shots, you can often find the ‘from where I stand’ hastag a strong favourite in our feeds. The perfect shoes are essentials as is the textile on the floors, with some sneaky editing and perhaps a filter, you’re pretty much good to go.

I was in complete awe over Anouska and her style during a recent trip to Prague. Her pictures were beyond breathtaking with perfect shots of iconic landmarks, the obligatory ice cream angle and of course her fabulous style. I fell head over heels in love with this magnificent wide leg jumpsuit. It looks effortless on Anouska as she has kept the rest of her accessories etc to a minimum.

With Autumn just a stone throw away, I cannot wait to see what gorgeous layered looks Anouska will be wearing. I would seriously recommend checking out her blog if you eat, sleep and breathe fashion. If there are any bloggers you would like to see featured, please don’t hesitate to get in touch! 🙂

Anouska started up her blog in 2011 as a way to share her love for fashion and life through photography and film. I love her style- it’s quite European. With a photographer who has an eye for detail, it’s a winning combination. Definitely worth visiting, I promise you’ll love it!
