Kildare Village - Day Trip to The Irish National Stud and Gardens

As the summer holidays come to a close and it’s time to start thinking about those must have autumn/winter essentials, why not combine a fun day out this bank holiday weekend with a spot of autumn shopping or treat the kids with some back to school or college essentials at the Village!

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 to The Irish National Stud and Gardens

"The National Stud and Gardens located in Kildare is a beautifully elegant spot and the perfect place for your Day Trip to Chic. I had the opportunity to walk around the Gardens, cross the iconic red bridge in St Fiachra’s garden and I got to meet Kicking King, the Cheltenham Gold Cup winning horse – he was so sweet!  

For this look I chose a classic mini dress from Karen Millen – it can be styled differently all year round – and I stuck with the three-colour rule, which is an easy way of combining colours without going overboard. To keep the look modern, I paired a mixture of classic and fun accessories. The cobalt pumps and bouclé jacket are timeless wardrobe pieces but this French Connection necklace and Lulu Guinness clutch add more personality and originality into an outfit. The cut of this dress makes it uber-flattering and completely comfortable, perfect for a summer occasion or day of frolicking in the gardens."
