If you've been following me for a while, it will come as no shock that I've had a little trip to ZARA recently.. yes, again. If there are many of you from Ireland, I always go to the ZARA in Belfast which is a whole shopping trip of its own - I could literally spend a day in there (no exaggeration at all), not to mention spend an entire month's wages in one go!
I found this amazing beige-green(ish) faux leather coat in the sale for £29.99.. reduced from about £80. With this coat being completely lined with faux fur, it is quite literally the warmest piece in my wardrobe and I've been so glad to own it these past few weeks throughout this nutter of a storm that's been going on in Ireland. Also, it's probably the only coat I own that actually has a hood.. bonus. I'd happily buy in many more colours!
Chunky knits are and always will be my favourite clothing item for the colder months. This cardigan/jacket in particular is super cosy and comfortable.. especially for those days in class when I like to keep warm, but would be otherwise uncomfortable wearing a coat.. it's a great in-between! I'm also obsessed with the contrast lapels and cuffs as it adds a little bit extra to an outfit. I've already worn this piece so many times that it has become an absolute staple for me. I'm sure I paid £29.99 for this in store, but somehow it's £15.99 on the ZARA website.. I'm not sure if this is a mistake as it is not a sale piece, but buy it at the cheaper price while you can!
I own so many pairs of shoes that I could probably set up my own boutique and pay a mortgage with the money I'd make, but unfortunately 90% of them just aren't comfortable enough to be wearing for 4+ hours when you work in a super busy fashion store, hence this purchase. I love that the boots are two-toned.. the front is a brownish shade with a red/burgundy undertone, with the contrasting black at the ankle and a chunky gold zip which gives an extra bit of detail. What makes these perfect for work is definitely the chunky heel and overall comfort of the boots.. I'd definitely recommend if you're looking for a new pair of comfy yet fashionable shoes!
These are still available on the links below if you'd like to make a purchase, and are also available in all-black if the two-tone isn't for you!
I'd love to know if you've found any amazing pieces recently!?
Thanks for reading..
