Last Saturday some of you that follow me on Snapchat may have seen that I was at the Athlone Fashion Trail with my Into the West Blogger Network fam. This was a day of discovering what Athlone has to offer fashion wise. I already knew Athlone was a great destination for shopping as I would make regular trips there to shop but unfortunately since I moved to Galway, these trips have become less often so I was so excited to be back for a browse around the shops & boutiques of Athlone.
We started the day off in the fabolous Colm Quinn showroom where we were treated to breakfast and bubbly, I always love visiting the Colm Quinn showrooms.. #goals
Our first stop of the day was Kadee Bridal and OH MY GOD is what I have to say for this boutique. I fell in love with dress after dress. If you’re planning a wedding and you want something different and high fashion inspired, you NEED to visit Kadee Bridal, trust me.
Olivia Danielle is a firm favourite of a couple of my blogger friends from ITWBN so I knew we were in for a treat with this stop and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. This boutique offers something for every age group and every style and every piece of clothing is definitely runway approved in my opinion.
Athlone Town Centre will always be a top pick for me and if you have followed me for a while you may have noticed. It’s definitely worth the trip here as H&M and Zara along with many other amazing high street stores are located here all under one roof.
Lunch was served in the most beautifully decorated area in Athlone Town Centre and was supplied by The Fatted Calf, I have one word for this lunch, PERFECTION. If you are ever in Athlone I would highly recommend The Fatted Calf for food, it’s so delish!
We visited Boutique Clodagh which was actually a boutique I have never been to before. They have some beautiful coats for this coming winter so if you looking to update your winter wardrobe, Boutique Clodagh is worth a trip.
Nell’s Closet has me dying to be invited to a special occasion so I have an excuse to return there. I would definitely really struggle picking just one outfit from here though as there was plenty of wow clothing on display. Nell’s Closet certainly caters for all age groups and occasions so no matter what age you are or what occasion you have coming up I can guarantee you will find something amazing here.
The Athlone Fashion Trail definitely wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Burgess. Burgess Department store was founded in 1839 and is famous for being the longest established department store in Ireland.
We ended the day in the best way possible with cocktails in the Radisson Blu overlooking the River Shannon on a beautiful sunny evening.
