OOTD: Berry Tones

Coat: Zara // Top: New Look // Jeans: Topshop // Brogues: Schuh // Bag: Vero Moda // Scarf: Awear

Needless to say the Irish weather has cooled noticeably in the last few days...there was frost on my Mom's car windscreen this morning, the first time since last winter! Add to this the cheer of an over cast sky and plenty of misty rain (yay!) November is most definitely here. Anyway less of the doom and gloom and more about the positives of this time of year. Bonuses? Wrapping up warm and layering to keep out the cold, hot water bottles, reading in bed at night and an open fire to name but a few! It is safe to say that I prefer dressing for winter weather as opposed to summer weather, as I think you can have more fun styling outfits with layers and accessories.

My colour of the moment is quite obvious from previous posts and one that has become a staple Autumn/Winter colour over the last few seasons. Plum/Berry tones are easy to style and add colour to neutral winter outfits and are seriously dominating my present winter wardrobe! The staple of my outfit is a new purchase; a plum Zara coat of a rich wool texture, gold zip/button details with black lapels. It was pricey but I believe in investing in good quality winter coats that will last you from one season to the next, plus I could NOT have left it behind was love at first sight! Tell me what ye think!

Hope ye're all well
