My Visit To Athlone Town Centre

Being from Galway we are deprived of some amazing shops, especially two retail stores that would be my top favourite. They would be Zara and H&M. I wonder sometimes how we function without these two amazing, stylish and affordable stores. 

A few years back Athlone opened the largest shopping centre in the midlands with 60 top retail brands all under the one roof. Catering for all ages, the retailing brands range from M&S and Next to River Island and Zara. View thewebsite here! You can keep up to date with all the goings on in Athlone TC if you follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Its really a great day out and such a novelty for me to have a shopping trip to Athlone Town Centre, where I try to shop as often as I canIts only 40-50 minutes from Galway and such a easy drive on the motorway. Its just great not having to travel as far as Dublin for these great retail stores.

I was there just last Sunday with my friend and I choose some outfits from my favourite shops just to show you guys what a great shopping experience you can have there. 

My First stop was to H&M, with such affordable clothing I am always super excited to shop here. The H&M in Athlone TC is big so you have great selection there: 


Yellow and White Patterned Trousers and Vneck white top (shoes my own).

Collared Patterned Sleeveless Shirt.

Monochrome Stripped Wrap shirt.

White T-shirt, Sport Luxe Silk Shorts and Gold Chain
 Prints are huge this summer and aren't going anywhere. H&M have a great selection of prints and I am a sucker for them.
These wrap shirts are huge at the moment too, H&M have the nicest ones I have seen yet. I have one from Zara and Topshop have them too, Beautiful and really elegant.
I am gone a bit mad on the monochrome sports luxe look at the moment and I had to stop myself buying these shorts (cause I have loads already ha) but this white T-Shirt for €9.95 is really fab. It has T-shirt material on the back but the front is silk like a shirt. I forgot to buy this chain, so sad. But next time :)

River Island:

Bowler Hat, Camie Top, Tracky Trousers and Cut Out Hi Tops
Orange Midi Skirt
Sports Luxe look is very me and the bowler hat it pretty cool. These cuts out trainers come in several colours - Red, Blue, Black and White. Super uber with a wedge insert. The cut out detail is so funky, they are really different. 
This Cami top can be worn day and night like above. Orange is a huge trending colour and very eye catching like this figure hugging midi skirt.

Silk Sleeveless Shirt with Floral Jeans & Orange Pointed Courts 

White Dress (Chain my own).
Floral Jeans are trending this summer too and Zara have some great selection of floral printed jeans. They fit really well and look good on. 
You would of seen these court heels on my Instagram and Facebook and a few people asked me about them, they are lovely and soft on your feet.
This dress would be great for the races with a very colourful head piece. Very classy dress you would have it for years to come.


Varsity Yellow Crop Top and Topshops Riding pants

Beanie, Mom Jeans and Crop Jumper.
I actually bought this crop top on my shopping trip in Athlone TC, I have been looking for a yellow crop top like this for awhile and to my luck I found it here for €25. Tops like these can be worn casual of course but they look really cool on nights out with a chain like mine above.

These pants are copies of American Apparels riding pants. Super stretchy means super comfy. There are pockets on the back too. 

My other purchase of the day was this Cropped Jumper on sale for just €15. This is very suitable for our Irish weather and I will get loads of wear out of this jumper. You all know I love beanies and you cant go to Topshop without trying one on. They always have a great selection and good quality ones.

I hope you guys enjoyed my post about Athlone Town Centre because I always enjoy my trip here and I hope you guys do/will too, when you come to visit.
