The one that got away....

I completely forgot to finish and publish this post back in October. No idea why. I must have had a manic few weeks and thought it had been published. So a few months late, here goes with the bonus that the shoes are in the sale and there are lots of similar jackets from Zara on sale too...
The photos were taken by my photographer friend Jess Lowe. If you're in or around Belfast and you want some great head shots, Jess is your woman. I love working with her and will book her for more photos in 2018. It just elevates blog posts to another level having decent photos that aren't taken by a 9 year old. The best bit? She puts you at ease immediately and just does a great job without faffing about.
I'll start with the jacket, which has featured lots on Instagram since I bought it in October. It's been one of the most useful pieces in my wardrobe - perfect for dressing up jeans and heels on a night out - as I've done here. It may be in-store but it is no longer online. However, I've found a few alternatives on the Zara site (see further down)
Bag - Yoshi (gifted 2015)
The bag is an oldie from Yoshi. They've an amazing sale on at the moment too. This is the Lowry clutch which is a cross body and a clutch, all in one. The most gorgeous soft leather too. It's no longer available in this colour way but the colours change each season. Some of this season's colours are in the sale on this link.

The shoes are my velvet slingbacks from M&S which make me very happy. I'm hoping to wear them more once the weather warms up a little. As I said above, they're in the sale at the moment and come in a blush colourway too. Low stock online but I've seen them in-store in a wider range of sizes.

The jeans were a lucky find on the H&M summer sale rail for £10. Always check out the H&M sale jeans - I've picked up about 3 pairs in the past few seasons for between £5 and £15!
Finishing with the top. Not just any old black top this one - oh no, it's a super stylish thermal one from from Hotsquash. Jenny the owner gifted it to me a few months ago after hearing about my cold office! It's fabulous and long line (perfect for long bodies) and is a brilliant design for those of us less blessed in the bust department.
I particularly love the asymmetrical neckline
Don't the autumn leaves on the street look lovely? To think this was only 3 months ago. Not a leaf on any of those trees at the moment.

Finishing with a few of the Zara alternative jackets that are still available in the sale. Adore them all. I really shouldn't have looked....
