When we think of perfectly styled Irish influencers, Lauren Arthurs springs to mind immediately.

The blogger and style maven took to Instagram recently to showcase a pretty unique take on the classic summer kimono, and we're all about it.

Lauren opted for this golden-hued oriental-inspired kimono with a cinched, button down waist and fitted lower sleeves. 

The silky finish adds a luxe touch to an otherwise very affordable statement piece. 

The low cut neckline leaves rooms for some layered necklaces, or leave the decollatage bare and add a pair of tasselled earrings. 

Bershka Kimono €45.99

Rather than teaming this piece with jeans and sandals like the stylists at Bershka, Lauren went for an edgy pair of chunky Doc Martin boots. 

She also went bare-legged, adding some black shorts and her black Gucci Marmont handbag.

This piece is perfect for a summer holiday, thrown over a bikini and some chunky sandals. 

We would also weAr this kimono open, with a black turtleneck top and black jeans. 

 Another piece to add to our wish list…



Our Beauty Blogger of the Week is the amazing Lauren Arthurs, creator of Love Lauren. 

This Cork native has recently moved back to Ireland after a stint in London.

Lauren started blogging in January 2013 as a hobby, but her site has since blossomed into something much bigger. As well as insights into her life, style and beauty routine, the blog also features an online boutique and an area for readers to sell their own pre-loved clothes and accessories. Very impressive!

We caught up with Lauren to get some of her beauty secrets…

1. What is your best budget beauty buy?
My best budget buy is definitely the Mua ‘stick’ concealer. I think it costs around €2 and comes in 3 different shades. It's so fab for covering up those bags. 

2. What is your top make-up tip?
Apply your foundation almost instantly after applying your moisturiser. That way, your face is still dewy and your make-up spreads much more evenly.

3. Most girls have a much-loved lipstick – what's yours?
Hmmm, that's a tough question as lipstick is my favourite make-up product and I use so many different colours and brands – but my favourites would have to be Nyx 561 'Violet Ray' & 'Red 01' from Kate Moss' line for Rimmel.

4. What was your very first perfume and what are you currently wearing?
My first perfume was Escada 'Paradise' which is really lovely but it's more of a sweet summer smell. Now I wear Dolce & Gabbana 'Light Blue' which is such a gorgeous fresh smell. I love it! 

5. You're only allowed to use three make-up products for the rest of your life… what are they?
Face moisturiser, mascara and Vaseline! I’m not a person to wear too much make-up but I feel naked without mascara! I think most girls do.
