What I've Been Wearing 14 | Style

Another update on my outfits recently...transitional dressing is in full swing this month! Starting with a recent one from this week. It was one of those mornings when you wake up late and can't think what to wear. But I had a couple of meetings and it was my son's school prize giving so I had to make a bit of an effort!! So I called on all the wardrobe basics....
Coat - Hobbs
Jeans - JD Williams Sophia Jegging
Trainers - Crime London (AW18)
Jumper - Benetton (AW16)
Next, this is what I wore to French Village a couple of weekends ago when my husband was away and they offered to sort us out for dinner. Hence the happy face...
 Coat - Stradivarius
Shoes - M&S (SS18)
Bag - preloved Dune
Jeans - old H&M
Leather top - preloved M&S
Next up, one of two pictures from my visit to The Bottom Drawer in Portadown. This is one of the outfits I tried on - the cropped jacket is an amazing buy!
Jacket, skirt, bag and top - The Bottom Drawer, Portadown
Shoes - Marco Tozzi (SS19)
 One from last weekend now where I wore a new knit from Berlin Boutique. Love the oversized cut of this Ozai N Ku brand jumper.
Leggings - Spanx (AW17 - Orchid)
Boots - Tommy H from Alana in Lurgan
Blazer - M&S (AW18 Sale)
Bag - Zohaha (gift)

I did a 'guess the gate' on Instagram but everyone got this one - it's St Malachy's in North Belfast and my poor son had to take this ahead of basketball training...he was less than impressed
Parka - hush sale (AW18)
Jeans - H&M old
Boots - Tommy H at Alana as before
Bag - Zohara (gift)

Next up, it's an outfit from the Gok Wan event I attended in Belfast last week. As a long time fan of Aunty Gok, I was delighted to be gifted a ticket to come along by the team at Berlin Clothing. They loaned me this dress to wear but I ended up buying it!
Dress - Freequent at Berlin Clothing
Bag - preloved
Blazer - H&M (old)

A change from the phone photos next - this one is a professional one taken by my friend Gillian Robb  for a JD Williams project I worked on last month. This scarf is the free gift they give you if you spend £50 or more during October on the JDW website. Just love the colours - perfect for my warm colouring...
Scarf, Trousers, Shoes, Bag - JD Williams (part of a paid collaboration)
Jacket - preloved Topshop

I featured this next coat on a blog post a while back...it's from AllSaints and I'm so pleased I got it at the end of the sale. Have worn it loads:

Boots - Tommy H as before

Navy knit - LK Bennett- (SS18)

and again with the coat - love how easy it is to style with its neutral colours. This photo was taken in Excel Clothing when I was in this week doing a try-on:

Scarf - preloved

This next outfit is another one I tried on at The Bottom Drawer...you won't be surprised to hear the coat came home with me...

Another casual outfit using a preloved Zara blazer I picked up when I was down in Dublin...

and finishing with a night out outfit - from an evening spent with the team at AC Hotels in Belfast and Novelli at City Quays. We got to experience a Christmas night out and it was simply wonderful...hence the dressing up!! Do you recognise the coat?!! I'm a sucker for a great coat...
Coat - The Bottom Drawer
Bag and Shoes as before

Hope you enjoyed...all the outfits are always over on Instagram but I do keep a few just to share on here :)



  1. What size is the black faux fur coat you're wearing? I'm just wondering whether they come up oversized/loose fit. Love it with your satin trousers. Xx

    1. Hi there , sorry for the delay replying....for some reason, I can't reply to comments on my phone. I'm wearing the 8 in this coat - it definitely comes up big! x
