Back to Black (and White)

The weather in Dublin last weekend was disastrous! After some beautiful sunny weather the rain came back and it completely put me off any of my bright and cheery clothes. I returned to me reliable look of all black with a dash of white, and of course a red lip (it really is the perfect addition to any monochrome look)!

I have been waiting to wear this coat for AGES after buying it February at Penneys. It is a light and hood-less jacket so not exactly Irish weather friendly, but it was an absolute bargain so I don’t really mind. The main body of the coat is white and the arms and shoulders are made of faux leather.

I have been pre maturely packing for my Summer holidays and re-discovered these Jimmy Choo patent black sandals that I have not worn in YEARS! They were one of the best sale purchases of my life, but not particularly comfortable… they are great for bars and restaurants but an absolute nightmare if you plan on standing/ walking/ dancing for hours! I bought them years ago when I worked in Harvey Nichols and had almost forgotten all about them!

Conor and I were out for a dinner and a drink (yes only one) and I was really happy with my outfit, which was brought to life by the jacket and shoes.

As I mentioned before, the jacket was a bargain buy from Penneys, so the only real issue I have with it is the length of the sleeve. You can see in the picture below that the sleeve does not sit right on my and I will probably look at getting it taken up, or I may even try a DIY job, but for €30 this jacket is pretty awesome!
