It's official: staycation is the word of 2021. 

With the continued international travel restrictions in place, we are looking at another Irish summer. Whether you choose to explore the ancient caves of Ardmore, taste some seafood delicacies in Kinsale or grab a takeaway pint from one of the delightful bars in Dingle, you will need a killer outfit to make you feel stylish and comfortable. With so many fashion boutiques and shops open for business again (we are open in Naas and Monread!) the choice can feel overwhelming. Especially as most of us have spent the past year in our lounge-wear. Luckily, we have the curated the perfect pieces for your staycation trip in this post. Our staycation outfit ideas are SO stylish in fact, that you will feel like you're actually on holidays! 

1. The Wear Everywhere Cardigan

Our Monza longline cardigan (available in six glorious colours!) is an Irish summer essential. Although we would all love to think we will have a gorgeous, warm summer, the reality is sadly far from that! Our Monza cardigan has 18% wool, which will ensure that you feel warm and cosy when you're strolling with your friends, having outdoor dinner with your family or bringing your children on summer activities. This must-have cardigan would be perfect with jeans and a top or over your favourite wrap dress. 

2. The Mood-Boosting Floral Dress

Kate & Pippa Boho Midi Dress Orange & Pink Print SS21

Planning a city escape this season? Whether your staycation holiday takes you to the winding streets of Galway, the bustling centre of Dublin or the food capital of the country, Cork, you need an urban outfit to match the vibe. Our Boho SS21 dress is your savvy style saviour. This season, we are all dress obsessed! At Nicola Ross Boutique, our style advisors always recommend building your outfit around your key piece: your dress. By starting with your dress, you can then invest in a few accessories to take your dress from day to night. Team your Boho faux wrap style dress with white trainers and a denim jacket and then dress it up with some chic mules (like Jennifer has above!) and your trusty leather jacket for an effortless evening look. 

3. The Trusty Patterned Top

This light and airy Forli top has the perfect colour palette for Ireland’s unpredictable temperatures (we have it in blue, too!). We love this top because it is not too vibrant and outlandish, which makes it very wearable throughout the season. If the sun does eventually come out on your staycation, we can add pops of colour as we see fit. The other thing the team here at Nicola Ross Boutique love about this top is that it is versatile enough to be worn for smart/casual occasions too. The Forli top be dressed up very easily with only a handful of added accessories. Look at Laura and Doireann's styling choices above! It’s the perfect addition to your staycation holiday suitcase, it's an eternally stylish piece for your spring/summer wardrobe.

You want to make sure that your look matches your heavenly surroundings. A standout dress of summer last year, the wrap dress isn’t going anywhere for 2021. As soon as you step into our Sienna SS21 wrap dress, the summer vibes begin. There are so many ways to wear our wrap dress. Pop on jeans and a white cami top and our Sienna transforms into a soft kimono. When the warm weather hits, style our Sienna wrap dress as a light coat using it to layer over your favourite shorts. Why not fold your Sienna wrap dress back to reveal a pair of colour pop trousers? There are endless style options with our Sienna wrap dress this holiday season.
