"When it comes to fashion I'll always put it before practicality, even if I regret my choices later."

We caught up with Louise Cooney to find out the secrets behind her amazing style. She tells us everything, from her favourite places to shop to her biggest fashion regrets.

What is your most worn piece of clothing?
A black double breasted blazer I have from H&M. It’s so versatile & just really good quality! Something I’ll have in my wardrobe & continue to wear for a long time.

Most sentimental piece in your wardrobe?
My aran knit jumper my granny knit me. She had her own tags that said “Made especially for you by Peg O’Neill” – it’s so special to me. It’s a hug in a jumper!

Are there any outfits/trends you regret wearing?
Platform heels – I’m 5 foot 10 as it is, I definitely didn’t need the height! But when it comes to fashion I’ll always put it before practicality, even if I regret my choices later.

Your favourite brand to shop with?
H&M – very reasonably priced, on trend & I love that they have put more of a focus on sustainability through their recycling & conscious collection!

The best style advice you’ve ever received?
Less is more.

What outfit makes you feel the most comfortable?
Weirdly I love an all white look! I’m always a little worried I’m going to get it dirty, so I’m not comfortable in that sense, but it makes me feel good, stylish and like myself.

What is your next buy/what are you lusting after?
I love Bottega Veneta everything at the moment, but I think I’ll be lusting a little while longer! New York is an expensive city to live in so I will admire from afar for now!

Is there a particular piece of jewellery that you wear all the time?
Yes my Katie Mullally Gold Irish Pound necklace my sisters got me for Christmas, I love it so much.

Who is your biggest style icon?
I definitely look to other fashion bloggers for inspiration Leonie Hanne, Brittany Xavier, Danielle Bernstein, Caroline Daur – they just never get it wrong.
