Style Diary – Oversized Roll Neck & Military Jacket

IMG_1578

Hey Guys,

Happy Sunday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I had such a nice weekend – on Friday evening I attended two boutique openings in town (more on my Instagram) followed by a few drinks in the beer tent at the Christmas Market. I had a very chilled out Saturday for the first time in a long time and I can honestly say I forgot how nice it is to wake up feeling fresh (& not suffering from wine flu) on a Sunday morning. Today we had a family birthday and afterwards myself and my sister went into town to start on the Christmas shopping and shoot this look.

I picked up both this jumper and jacket in Zara a couple of weeks ago when I went shopping in The Athlone Town Centre with my family. The lovely people at the shopping centre had kindly sent me a voucher so I was delighted to finally be able to put it to use. I’m obsessed with oversized sweaters and roll necks at the moment so this jumper was an absolute must have the second I laid eyes on it. I was on the hunt for a good black jacket that would do for both casual and going out so I was delighted when I found this. I was even happier when I realised it was only €39.95! They don’t seem to have it online but I’ve found similar styles which I’ll link below.

After a small bit of shopping we went for a stroll through the Christmas Market. This year they’ve spread the market out over two locations which is lovely as it means you walk through Shop Street and Quay Street to get from one to the other. Nothing like a hot mocha to warm you up! Hope you guys enjoyed this post 🙂

Gotta Dash,

Edel x
