And the Penney drops...

So a little over a month ago we were happily walking around in our sundresses and sandals with the thought of winter and knitwear very much in the back of our minds. But a month has passed, and with it a drop in temperatures and dark evenings. It's that time of year again, time to start thinking about your A/W wardrobe. Now it would be very easy to go in to Zara and Topshop and drop €400 on the perfect wardrobe, and if you can afford that I salute you. And also,can you be my best friend? However for the everyday girl who wants to look fashionable and be able to eat that week, Penney's / Primark is the perfect high street winter haven. Penneys was once a budget friendly shop, but the quality wasn't great and you really did get what you paid for. Now though, Primark is a pillar of the High Street store and is loved by women all over the world. The clothes are always bang on trend, of the highest quality, and the price point, although a bit more expensive than before, is still very much purse friendly. The A/W collection was just released and it is just stunning. Now I have to admit, I know tartan is very much 'in' at the moment, but I'm not a lover of it, but I do quite like the tartan dress in the collection. It's a perfect winter piece to wear with boots, brogues,  a big wool cocoon coat, or to throw a chunky Aran jumper over. 

For those of you who are lovers of tartan, it features heavily in the new collection from jackets, shirts to scarves. 

This jacket pictured above is such a gorgeous, perfect winter coat. The two textures of wool and leather give nods to the monochrome, and cosy yet trendy cover up. 

By far my favorite piece in the entire collection. Not the most wearable piece because the colour is one that would need washing after a couple of wears, but it's worth it because it's so gorgeous. The colour is one we saw alot in the recent Fashion Weeks and the cocoon shape is very on trend. This will be one I will most definately be adding to my expanding wardrobe! 

I love these trousers. 
I got them last week only €17, and I'm
DYING to wear them. Perfect for out at night with a crisp white shirt half tucked in, or day time with brogues, ankle boots and a big wooly jumper. A great winter piece that will take you straight through to spring/summer! 

It's hard to tell if this skirt is midi of full length, but either way it's beautiful. The colour and material are perfect for contrasting textures such as leather, velvet and a black chunky ankle boot. 
You could also wear it very girlie and romantic with ankle socks, brogues, a lilac or any pastel cashmere jumper and the pink jacket pictured above. 

Moreso the outfit on the right- the neglige type dress is something that isn't for the faint hearted but it's perfectly ticking the 'underwear as outerwear' trend. Also, the shoes are amazing. For those of you who aren't sure about the slip-style dress, you could use it as an add on to existing pieces in your wardrobe. Put it under a little black dress and let the lace lining subtly peak through, or throw a jumper over it. I feel like my mother saying that 'put a jumper over that now', but jumpers are a great way to wear stylish winter clothes without freezing your arse off!

 That's my picks of the Penneys current collection, I look forward to seeing them in store in the next couple of weeks! 
Chow for now! 

Peace :) xo
