Darling, I Love You As You Are When You're Alone

I had a rare weekday off last week so we took advantage and got the train to Dun Laoghaire for the afternoon. We went for lunch in a cute restaurant called Gourmet Food Parlour. It was freezing but we still took a walk down the pier and stopped along the way to take some outfit photos. 


Coat- Dunnes Stores SÃ¥vida (similar here and here)
Top- New Look (similar here)
Jeans- Dorothy Perkins Casey 
Bag- Stella and Dot The Waverley Petite
Earrings- H&M
Shoes- Clarks Hotel Chic (Available on Amazon)
Watch- Stella and Dot Icon Convertible Watch (c/o)
Lipstick- Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect

So obviously the bright pink coat is the reason I wanted to photograph this outfit. I saw it in Dunnes at the beginning of January and fell in love. It's totally not a colour I would usually gravitate towards, in fact I think it's one of only two pink items of clothing that I own.  It's kind of oversized and not exactly the most flattering shape but I absolutely adore it.

Continuing my obsession with tassel jewellery, I saw these earrings in H&M and thought I didn't need them but after a second look I had to buy them, I think they look a lot more expensive than their price tag of only €7.99. The bag was one of those purchases I had been thinking about since I saw it at a Stella and Dot press day last year. I bought it in January after getting a Christmas bonus in my new job. I love the suede and brushed metallic mix and it can also be used as a clutch as the strap is removable. This particular style comes in lots of different patterns and colours, in fact my sister has the tan and stripe one which is such a cute cross body bag for Summer.

The Clarks shoes were one of my few Christmas sale purchases. I saw these in early Autumn and loved them so when they went into sale I picked them up immediately. The metallic finish actually matches that of my bag.

Before I bought this polo neck top I don't think I'd worn one since I was a kid. I just love how warm it is having my neck covered. I just think they're such a chic Winter wardrobe staple. These jeans are the relaxed skinny fit from Dorothy Perkins. I don't really shop there but I was browsing one day and came across these jeans. I loved the relaxed fit and charcoal shade, they're so comfortable on and a great price too, I'm definitely going to get them in another colour.

Lastly my watch was given to me at a press day and I've been reluctant to wear it because I love it so much and don't want to ruin it. I love the rose gold cut-out strap which you can actually interchange with other straps that are sold separately. I have a black leather double strap and they also come with a silver bezel so you can totally change the look of the watch depending on what you're wearing.

Tell me some of your current wardrobe favourites!

  1. Hi, Emma!

    I'm happy to go sight-seeing with you again, dear friend. The view from that pier looks marvelous and I can imagine how invigorating the chilly wind felt. Here in our part of Florida the weather is warming rapidly. The temperature didn't get anywhere near freezing all winter long. I only wore a jacket once the entire season!

    I admire your lush pink coat and the other elements of your outfit.

    It's great to see you again, dear friend Emma. Take care!

    1. You'd get a shock here Tom, it's been freezing, but is finally starting to warm a little. Hope you're well!

  2. Absolutely darling look! I love that 2nd picture of you especially, such a beauty. And I like how those earrings match with the shoes!! x

  3. You look beautiful and that Dunnes coat is fantastic!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate every single one!
