The Outerwear Essential

Hi guys! I hope you’re all having a great week so far. If you’ve been following my Snapchat and Instagram stories over the last few days you’ll know that I have been in France since Monday with my better half and bestie Leo. We’re visiting family over here and exploring Loire Valley (such a beautiful place). I will definitely be working on a travel post when I am back in Dublin. There is so much to do and see here and if you’re a lover of wine then look no further.

Anyway, back to fashion! With Autumn in full swing it’s time to start investing in lots of layers and outerwear pieces to get you through the cooler days and nights to come. Am I right?

Key outerwear styles this season include padded jackets, parkas, longline blazers, drape wrap coats and Chrombie styles. Not forgetting pops of colour like red, blue and pink to sit alongside neutrals. I know…. so much choice, so little time. I can’t get enough of anything and everything red and burgundy at the minute and of course (as I am sure you’ve noticed) logo tee’s.




I picked up this outfit from Littlewoods Ireland (outfit link below) and I am obsessed! Leather look jackets have always been a wardrobe staple of mine, a girl can never own too many skinny jeans, oversized shades for life and how amazing are these pointed boots? PS. They are beyond comfortable.







Leather-look jackets have been adding attitude to outfits for years and every girl needs one as part of her wardrobe in my opinion.  Whatever the season this Vero Moda beauty will get you through. You really can’t go wrong with a colour pop.


Own it with this statement tee from V by Very. They were everywhere at fashion week and they are here to stay so have at least one in your AW17 wardrobe! Love them!


Black skinny jeans are a wardrobe staple whatever the season. This pair from V by Very is cut with a high-rise waist that creates a really leggy look! I love the length and they are a stretchy fit too. A classic look with five pockets and they are nicely fitted to show off your shape.


The Kitty ankle boot from V by Very flaunts a sleek silhouette and a sexy pointed toe. The black knitted upper ensures a snug fit, while the skinny stiletto elongates and elevates your pins.


I went all out with this fabulous glam-rock embellished crossbody bag from V by Very. It has a classy gold chain for a strap and I love the pearl and gold studded detailing. The black compact bag is roomy enough for all the essentials and it has an interior zip for your extra bits and pieces.
