The AW17 Edit .1

With September 1st on the horizon, new season thoughts are slowly but surely creeping in!
Although I haven't had my summer holiday yet (4 weeks and counting!), I've already started my AW17 wishlist! This year, I'm setting myself a challenge to start with the basics and buy with outfits in mind, rather than random pieces here and there! So where better way to start than with a Top 5 list, all styled around the ultimate wardrobe staple - skinny jeans!

The only black jeans I have been living in this year are my POCO by Pippa All-Stars.
Perfect for day or night, they are without a doubt a key piece that I'll be building many outfits around this season!

Here, I've picked a monochromatic mix of basics tailored around work and weekend. A good fitting black blazer is at the top of my agenda, along with a quality pair of casual leather boots. I actually have this River Island blazer in Camel and I've worn it loads! Cashmere is the ultimate luxurious treat and a timeless investment. And Other Stories has a gorgeous selection in-store already and I'm definitely going to pick up a few pieces. Finally, pearls are trending in a massive way for AW17 - so they couldn't be overlooked! This white shirt from Zara is the perfect nod to the trend :)

Now...back to browsing for beachwear! But that's a whole other post :)

Have a great week!

End of summer jackets....

Hi everyone! We have been a bit quite on the blogging front of late, but it has been a busy summer so far for us and a little break away from everything is good sometimes! Now I love autumn except for very rainy days, but these unfortunately come hand in hand with our unpredictable weather in Ireland, so an extra light layer is always good to carry about.

White top| Savida @Dunnes

 I picked up my khaki parka the other day in Heatons for a mere €16, there are other colours  availabe instore as they don't seem to have them online. This one is great to pack away in your bag and have ready to whip out in a flash lol!! 

Here are a few more styles I like....

Red contrast shower proof parka Next

A great basic showerproof long anorak M&S

Saw this in a magazine during the week, love this red patent option from New Look

Love this large mesh design from Asos, reduced in price but only from size 12 up available. Would be good for layering with heavier knits later on in autumn though:)

Another great reversible option reduced also from Asos

Love the leaf print on this handy grey/khaki mac from  Dunnes

Hope you all have a good week ahead!

Take Care:)
