I have wanted a classic-looking camel winter coat for the longest time (I even talked about it on a recent wish-list blog post – read here) and as I live most of the year in Dubai – I never found the need for it.  But seen as I was home in Ireland and it was Black Friday…..I thought – why not? It doesn’t take much to persuade me!!! So I hopped online……(seriously…….why would anyone venture into the shops on Black Friday???) and got my 20% Black Friday discount from Zara on this fab wool coat above…..thank you very much.

I think it is something that I will have in my wardrobe for years and will never date as it is a classic style and the length lends to a timeless fashion.  It is also a wool coat – so it has that practical factor of keeping me warm……..added bonus ha, ha!

As camel is such a timeless colour – it looks fab with most other colours, especially black, cream, white, red, navy and blue.  For this look I styled it with an all-black ensemble as you can’t go wrong with black ever and lends itself to a nice, smart, winter look.

The saddle bag is something I have talked about on my Instagram and Facebook page – a similar look to the Chloe Drew bag and was such a bargain at €25 from Irish department store Dunnes Stores.  It is such a great size – especially for us mums – as its the perfect bag for throwing over your shoulder – holds all the essentials and more, whilst looking stylish especially with the gold hardwear and isn’t bulky.  It has a gorgeous black textured leather finish, a gold chain strap and is the type of bag that can take you from day to night.  It also comes in a fab dusty-pink colour – which of course I bought – perfect for Spring/Summer 2016.  Remember ‘you snooze……you lose’ when it comes to stuff like this! When it’s gone…’s gone!!

Ok so we all know…..I absolutely love shoes……and this winter in particular, there are so many fab new styles about – my head is literally spinning! I love ankle boots and anything patent and shiny and have been wearing these fab H&M Chelsea-boot-style patent black ones so much this winter.  They go with everything, from skinny jeans, leather leggings, black tights, midi-dresses, leather skirts, skater dresses – you name it…..these look great with so much.
