We all need a good coat at this time of year, and the Penneys Military Coat has been a much talked about item. The military style coat in general is a premium look this season with some labels commanding a hefty price, but not this one. It is a perfect catwalk to closet look and it’s only €40. And it doesn’t have to be styled for day time either. So I decided to try an alternative look.
I love slip dresses and this rose print style is perfect for what I need. The print adds character; a lot of the black styles really do look like nightwear and I’m not too keen on that. To avoid looking too bare, I layered a mesh long sleeved top underneath but you could also go for a light polo neck, turtle neck or knit to layer either.
The balance of the autumnal colours against the backdrop of my old Alma Mater, Trinity College Dublin is ideal for my current style. I’m loving the dark light to shoot in, and it’s adding a feeling of mystery to my instagram feed. I wanted to change how my social media pictures look so I am embracing the time of year, with low setting sun and cloud cover.
You may have seen the boots in this post from my earlier outfit post on the pleated skirt (another one of those to come this week too!) and I have been getting loads of comments about these on instagram too! These are all available in store in Penneys & Primark now.
