Coats, coats & more coats

Pin It Now!






It seems to have become very cold very quickly. We all know what this usually means - time to get a new winter coat. I can't stop myself from going into Zara these days - they're my favourite shop at the moment.  They have gorgeous stuff especially their coats - very on trend with studs, leather and lots of black, navy, grey and khaki. 

I'm also loving the blazer coat which seems to be everywhere - not sure how warm this would keep you as it doesn't close in the front but it's gorgeous. 

Unfortunately I will have to wait until the winter sales are on as they all seem to be pretty pricey starting from €150. However just like shoes, a girl can never have too many coats...

Nerdy Spex

Pin It Now!

For about a year I thought there was something wrong with my computer screen at work until a colleague said I should probably get my eyes tested. But I was only in my early 30's? I couldn't possibly need glasses? Well, it turns out I had one eye shaped like a rugby ball and the other like a soccer ball so I got glasses. Since it was my first pair I got a pretty plain pair - small with thin frames. They are too small for my eyes and I am sick of looking at the top of the frame so I want to get a new pair. 

But...which colour to go for...tortoiseshell brown or plain black? Or should I go completely crazy and get a pair of these?

The problem with picking glasses is finding an opticians who will leave you alone long enough for you to try some on. I always find they end up handing me frames by Chanel, Tom Ford, Ray Ban and every overpriced designer in the shop. It's very frustrating. Funny enough though one of them did say black frames suited me best...I think I'm going to go for the black frames.

Pin It Now!

Jeans, Scarf,Boots - New Look
Cardigan - Miss Selfridge
Blouse - From a friend

I'm sorry for my lack of posts lately but it has been a very busy month for me. I will try to post more often if I can but forgive me if I only manage one a week for the next while.

Track of the Day:   The XX - Sunset

The XX are back with their second album at last. I don't think it's as good as the first one - the songs are much slower and there aren't enough guitar solo's but it does have a couple of good tracks like this one.

Hope you had a nice weekend xx

Summer Evening BBQ/Get A Job

Pin It Now!

Skirt - Zara 
Shoes - Penneys
Necklace - H&M
Earrings - Forever 21

At the Italian wedding of my very good friend Sarah to her sweetheart Mark they held a BBQ in the grounds of the hotel the night before for all the guests. It was held around the swimming pool while the night crickets kept us entertained with their wonderful songs. 

I wore a long black skirt from Zara and was going to pair it with a grey t-shirt but instead wore a yellow one...why am I doing a post with a grey shirt you ask - just to show you how else you could pair it!

Track of the Day:   Gossip - Get A Job

The more I listen to this song the more I love it. I always end up dancing around the kitchen/bedroom/bathroom to it. 

Have a good week xx
