Kildare Village - Day Trip to Castletown House

As the summer holidays come to a close don’t leave it too late to escape the hum of the city and enjoy new and intriguing experiences.

Kildare Village has collaborated with fashion blogger Tara Marzuki as she creates her very own five Day Trips. Follow Tara here during the month of August as she styles her own look from the boutiques in Kildare Village for her five ultimate summer days out.

Day Trip One to Castletown House

"For my day trip to Castletown House, Ireland’s largest and earliest Palladian-style house, I looked to the location for inspiration. A monumental estate, Castletown House oozes sophistication, with its historical decor and beautiful tea rooms. I decided this Mulberry velvet number would be the perfect fit. Glamourous, but not too fitted and colourful without being too bold, the velvet’s colours were picked up beautifully by the light and to bring them out further and give the dress more shape, I added a magenta waist belt, also from Mulberry. I went for a camel-coloured, calf hair handbag to add some warmth to the look, but kept it subtle on the feet with a flattering pair of teal sandals. I completed the look with a 1940s vibe for the hair and a bold lip."
