Outfit Update | Gucci Dupes

A long overdue outfit catch up as I'm aware I've been sharing stuff on Instagram but not as much here on the blog. So for those of you not following on Insta (and I know there are quite a few), here's what I've been wearing and doing the past couple of weeks.

Starting with some new shoes and I first spotted these beauties on another Instagram account - Back of the Wardrobe.  They're the most amazing Gucci dupe from Dune and I had been on the look out to replace my River Island ones which are not leather and are slightly wrecked looking after much wear.
And of course, I had to wear them the next day along with a recent purchase from Gap at The Outlets in Banbridge. Loving this stripey jumper which was on 30% off the day I was down, making it about £25 (can't find the receipt)
Jumper - Gap
Cross Body Bag - M&S (SS17)
Jeans - H&M (SS17)
Shoes - Dune
(all my own purchases)
Next up and a colder day outfit from a day at the Good Food Show in Belfast. I bought this Benetton down filled coat in the sale in January (with Christmas money from my mother in law) and it's without a doubt the warmest coat I own. It's like putting on a heated blanket because it instantly retains the heat thanks to the feather and down filling. They retail at about £140 I think but it's worth racing in to the beginning of the sale to snap them up with some discount. I think mine was £100...definitely don't have that receipt still!
(current season version on link. It doesn't have a hood like mine but actually thinking about it, I don't really use my hood...)
Scarf - Fat Face (AW16)
Boots - Ash (AW16 - bought in the Summer Sale - the best time to snap up boot bargains)
Handbag - Zohara currently reduced
(all own purchases apart from the bag)

Next up, a dressier outfit from a visit to the new Bassetts showrooms in Bangor. Yes, I'm still looking for a bathroom and no, I've still not availed of their kind offer to quote me a good price for a new one but it's in the budget for the new year - just need to get Christmas out of the way first.
Meanwhile, check out the tiled corridor in the new showroom...a blogger's dream!
Jacket - Zara (AW17 - not online but I've seen it in-store recently)
Jeans - MiH (as per this post)
(all own purchases apart from the bag)
The shoes deserve a picture of their own. I saw them in DejaVu about a month ago for £18, brand new and unworn! I just couldn't leave them behind...
Shoes - Nine West (preloved purchase from DejaVu)

Another cosy one from the day I took the twins into Belfast to see Paddington Bear 2. Officially my favourite film of all time. I laughed and cried and came out wanting to rebook immediately to watch it again. 
Coat - Jaeger Outlet, Banbridge (50% paid for by gifted vouchers)
Scarf - Mango (AW15 - google 'plaid blanket scarf' to find lots of eBay options)
Bag - Zohara (as before)
Shoes - M&S (gifted) - only available in black & nude now

Finishing with one from last week - well wrapped up in my new H&M scarf and jumper...
Jumper & Scarf (current H&M but not online)
Jeans - Selected Femme (preloved via DejaVu)
Bag - as before

And that's me all caught up - I've not posted an outfit on Instagram for over a week! Mainly work reasons - it's been a busy one because of candle evenings up at the Field Day factory - but also practical reasons - it's getting dark so early! I've booked a photoshoot with the 9 year old tomorrow so normal service shall resume...

Back soon with a Silver Story party post!
