Outfit Catch-Up

It's another outfit catch up post and a chance to let you know what I've been getting up to this week. I'm loving the sunnier days and (slightly) warmer weather so my lighter coats have had a few outings, starting with Saturday when I wore my green Zara one..
Coat/Jumper/Scarf - all Zara...all past season - new version of the knit here 
Jeans - Pieszak (from Sarah Jane Boutique)
Shoes - Seven Boot Lane Flame Trainers (℅)
Cross Body Bag - Boden (v old - similar here)

On Monday, I wore my navy Boden Zoe, which I got in the sale after Christmas. I love the oversized shape. Under it, I wore the River Island draped top I got before Christmas. It's in the sale now apparently but I can't find it online anymore.
Coat - Boden Zoe (in clearance) - I'm wearing the size S
Draped Top - River Island (past season - I'm wearing a 14)
Scarf - via Dejavu
Boots - Ash Jalouse in Navy (current season heresimilar here)
Cross Body Bag - Yoshi (on sale!) use 15EXTRA for 15% off sale prices

I also wore my green Zara coat on Tuesday..but here's what I had on underneath it. I had to do a talk on Blogging & Facebook, hence the slightly smarter look. Kept it simple though...when in doubt, wear black!
Black Oversized Knit - River Island (current)
Black Jeans - Topshop Joni
White Shirt - TM Lewin
Black Ankle Boots - Ash Jalouse (similar here & here)

Wednesday saw me at the launch of the Lidl SS16 fashion range - a lovely event in the Merchant Hotel. Here are some photos of my favourite items and the good news is that the first drop of this new stock started today in the NI and ROI stores!
Here's what I wore:
Black Wool Cape - Zara
Grey Roll Neck - Mango (old - similar here)
Blue Distressed Skinny Jeans - Pieszak (Sarah Jane Boutique)
Black Ankle Boots - Dune London

Finally, today I wore my Great Plain's coat again (from this post), along with the lace up Topshop pumps I bought in the sales (see this post):
Jeans - Kings of Indigo (via TK Maxx)
Shoes - Topshop (out of stock)
Black Knit - Zara

How is it almost Friday again??? And I've just realised that my kids break up for Easter on Wednesday next (the 16th) - cue panicked planning for this almost 3 week break. Surely half term was only last week?

Hope you've had a great week,
