Last week I finally got my MRI appointment - at 8am on the other side of Belfast. Instead of thinking about the 7am start that would require, I instead focussed on the opportunity. I knew I'd be finished at about 8.30am so rather than cut across town in the rush hour, I decided to park up at Castlecourt and have a quick look in the shops while returning my Zara order.
It was short and sweet as I'm not up to walking far but I managed to find some nice pieces in New Look, Next, M&S and Zara....fur and pastel coats seem to be the order of the day, starting with New Look:
Black Fur Coat (£44.99) & Pink Wool Mix Biker Style Coat (£49.99)
And these oversized tartan scarves are gorgeous:
Pink Tartan & Orange Tartan
Kimonos are still featuring - loved the colours in this one:
Went up to Shoe Heaven but there were too many heels for my liking ...
I then went over to Next where there were some more great coats. The one on the left is a gorgeous pink colour and the one on the right is a mix of charcoal grey & navy. Stunning.
Pink Waterfall Coat (£65 - more pink coloured in real life) & Navy/Grey Zip Coat (£55)
I'm forever drawn to coral colours so this jumper really appealed. It's got gold flecks through it so is perfect for my colouring. I also spotted this faux leather jacket which is really similar to the one I got in H&M last year I'm always asked about.
Coral Boxy Jumper (£22) & Quilted PU Jacket (£55)
Onward to M&S for a fur & pastel coat update...the blue coat was in the sale though in limited sizes. I can't find either of these online.
The pale yellow coat was also in the sale (but I'm all over yellow coats now)...and then there was these boots (only available online in light grey). Just as nice in real life as they look online and they come in burgundy also. Very tempted. How many pairs of ankle boots are too many?
Finally it was into Zara where I had high hopes for their fur coats. But it wasn't to be....behold Mrs yeti woman:
I tried them all, long, short, leopard and plain. All awful. My fur coat dreams are in tatters....I can't even bear to link to them all. But they're all on the Zara website if you think they'll work for you.
And the tartan oversized scarves featured in Zara also - similar colours too
What was my MRI style? Hush harem pants, H&M grey t-shirt (old), River Island skater shoes and H&M quilted faux leather biker jacket (past season). Comfort all the way!
Hope you've had a good Bank Holiday weekend, here's to the last week of the school holidays...
