It has been a while since I shared a fashion post, so I decided to gather my looks from November that made it to Instagram, but not here.
In general November was a pretty casual month, I rarely get totally dolled up these days as the colder weather has me wrapping up and even staying in rather than heading into town.
I hope you enjoy this new style of post, let me know what you think in the comments below.
I started the month in my new Kenzo x H&M jumper. I was lucky enough to get invited to the preview the night prior to the collection launch and was lucky enough to grab the frill neck jumper. Funnily I did not like the look of this jumper online, but in person I fell in love.
I love breaking out my camel coat for Winter. This one was a black friday purchase from two years ago on Missguided, so this will be its third Winter with me and it is still in perfect condition. What I really love about camel coats in general is that I can be wearing runners and jeans and the coat will make everything looks a lot chicer and more put together.
I love a little leopard! This was another sale find from a couple of years ago, and it has done me so well. I rarely buy prints and stick with neutrals, however there is an argument that leopard print can be a neutral as it goes with just about anything!
WINTER IS COMING! I love my faux fur jacket and affectionately call it my ‘Jon Snow’ jacket. This is my toastiest jacket and adore dressing it up and down throughout Winter.
*My mum dug out this gorgeous roll neck top that she believes she’s had for about 20/ 30 years. She kindly gave it to me as it I was on the look out for a nice roll neck and she hadn’t worn it in decades.
Ok so this picture is kind of cheating as it was taken in October but I only shared it in November as part of my Lusty Beg Island post. To be honest though, I certainly wore this EXACT look in November too, as it is a go to for me.

You know I am having a bad hair day when I have it tied up! My go to style for oily/ frizzing hair days are two french plaits tied into a small bun at the back. I always get compliments when I wear my hair like this, and honestly I only wear my hair this way when there is nothing else that can be done with it!

Ok so I can’t really take credit for this look as I whipped a jacket off the rails at the Trace press day. I couldn’t help myself, I mean a gold metallic sheepskin aviator jacket!!!! The quality of this piece is amazing, I really did not want to take it off!
On a day-to-day basis I am usually in all black. I find it really funny how I adore all black clothing now, but when I worked in retail and HAD to wear all black all the time I HATED it! I only owned one pair of black jeans, for work wear only and now all of my jeans are black except for about 3 or 4 pairs!
I am 99.9% sure we are all wearing Zara here!!! My little sister Ria ( the gorg gal in the middle) turned 21 this months so herself, our sister Tara and I celebrated with food and drinks in Xico with all of her fabulous friends.
Although I rarely wear colour, I really love a good burgundy shade in Winter. It is warm and rich, without being too wild. This burgundy high neck top was a bargain find from Zara last year and I wish I had picked it up in a few more colours now.
Ending the month as I started. I usually don’t wear sweatshirts outside of the house, but my Kenzo x H&M jumper is so pretty! It has a fabulous ruffle neckline and gold button details (which you cannot see in this picture 😦 ) that dresses it up for me, while still feeling comfortable/ casual / cool.
You may have noticed that I repeat a lot of the same items over and over, and I try now to make an effort in purchasing items that I will get a lot of wear out of. I am also on a bit of a spending freeze since Conor and I got our house, all of my money has gone towards paint, kitchen utensils, rugs etc.
I am pretty lucky that my sisters work in retail so I get discount on items like my high-rise Hollister jeans that I LIVE in (did you notice I am wearing a pair in almost every pic? They are the same jean style but I do own a couple of pairs of the same style)! However, looking at these pictures I have decided that in December I will take at least one picture of me in jeans that are not black, even though I don’t own that many alternatives!
I hope you are having a fabulous Wednesday, and thanks so much for checking out my latest post.
