Mini Autumn/Winter Haul

Hey all!

Today I have a little haul for you. Hurrah! I wasn't very frugal with my expenditures on my Croatia holliers in August so times were a' tough for awhile. I have been scrimping over the last number of weeks to add to my already admittedly mahoosive autumn/winter clothes collection. Being from Ireland it's standard for a girls wardrobe to consist of 80% cold weather clothes. I don't think I need to explain why, much. Rain. Lots of rain and wind. Oh and cold weather...aaand that's just JUNE, you get me?!

First on my Autumn/Winter hit list was a cape. Yup I caved to the 'trend' but this gorgeous New Look cape is special. Just my happy balance between Chic/Boho. Whats not to like? Big, cozy and just plain fabulous! A 'night-time' counterpart was thus purchased at a market in the RDS during the Failte Ireland Dublin Horse Show. Random. J'adore, j'adore. I also needed to invest in a leather jacket. Like most, I have been on the lookout for my 'perfect' leather jacket. I hit a winner with this waterfall effect beaut so happy (stylish) days!

I fell in love with this pinstripe-esq box style pullover from New Look. So soft. So chic. #majorlove. The ankle booties were a must buy. I'm talking desperate times. My Topshop Chelsea boots bit the dust and were subsequently binned. Sad times but just meant replacements! The brown Chelsea boots are from Parfois, serious love for this shop. Very reasonable. These cost €45. A total bargain in my opinion for the style/quality. The black suede tassel boots are Zara Basic. They are divine and were a total steal at €30 in their summer (go figure) sale down from €80!!

Last but not least the bodycon River Island digital print dress. Very much out of my comfort zone but I decided my night time style needed a pep and this was it. Lets just say it was eye catching! ;)

So there you have it, my mini haul. Of course more shall be bought. I mean its only November after all! Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.

Love, Noir

October Style Picks

Hello everyone!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately...Aoife and I have been pretty busy working etc and as many bloggers will know it is difficult juggling all the different aspects of your life and on top of that maintaining an interest in blogging too.

So, the break was nice but expect a few more posts before Christmas tiiiiiiiime! Yes, already mentioning Christmas because lets face it once November starts its a slippy slope to December. On the plus side the weather has been exceptionally mild in Ireland but I'm not too lulled into a sense of security as the sh!t will no doubt hit the fan weather-wise eventually. Ever the optimist, I know!

This post is pretty simple (to ease me back into blogging). These ladies were my October Style Picks. Oddly enough not one of these women (bar Emma Watson's pants) are wearing dark colours for Autumn/Winter hence why I was drawn to these looks. My obsession with cream/nude/white this past Autumn is not wavering!

Hope ye like this and I look forward to future blogging adventures! What were your favourite looks over the last month?
