Steal My Style - Trench Coat

I am the kind of person who always prefers to be overdressed rather than underdressed. I'm not sure if that's good or bad, but that's just me. I wore this outfit for a shopping trip to Kildare Village. As I do with all of my Steal My Style posts (which you can find here), I will break this outfit down, and if a piece is no longer available, I will try my best to find an affordable lookalike.

My mom actually bought me this Tommy Hilfiger trench coat. Although my mom and I nearly always go shopping together, there is the odd time that I'm not with her. She knows my style so well that if she is shopping without me and she sees something that I'd like, she buys it for me. This coat is one of the things she bought for me, and it's the definition of my dream investment coat. For a coat with a RRP of €300, this obviously isn't a purchase to be taken lightly. Being Tommy Hilfiger, the quality is exceptional, and I love a lot of their classic designs. I've had this coat for a while now, which has since sold out, but it's been too cold until now to wear it as it's quite light, which is perfect for spring. Surprisingly, I found it quite difficult to find a good quality, nice navy trench coat on the high street, so this Jack Wills coat is the most affordable one I could find.

This New Look top is a simple, plain red blouse-like material that I bought on sale for a few euros a while ago. Being New Look, it obviously isn't designer quality, nor does it have the designer price tag, but I'm glad I bought it as the block of red compliments the stripe detail on the belt of my coat
. Again, it's quite light so I wore a cropped cami underneath from Jane Norman. I like how it's ever so slightly cropped which gives a nice, tidy, feminine silhouette. The top below is also from New Look, is super affordable, and would also look great tucked into high waisted jeans.

These Miss Selfridge jeans are one of my favourite pairs of denim jeans that I own. I usually wear high waisted jeans, but these are such a comfortable and perfect fit that I couldn't say no, even if they are more of a natural waist. I love the mid wash and the slight grinding on the hems. I turned the hems of my jeans up to show off the grinding and add a bit of youth to my otherwise very classic outfit. The Topshop jeans that I have linked below are a really similar wash and style, but without the grinding.

I have previously featured these heels in black in a Steal My Style post which you can read here, and a Budget Bargains post which you can read here. I love how they are almost the exact same colour as my Furla handbag, and I feel that they complimented my outfit perfectly. They aren't too high, so I find that they're perfect for a day of shopping, but I'll admit that I changed into flats after a while because it started snowing and I was absolutely frozen. It was actually near impossible to find any decent brown heels with tassels, so I had to settle on these lookalikes with a frill instead (and a lot higher heel).

My Furla Linda handbag definitely has to be one of my favourite designer purchases, if not my favourite, to date. I got the medium size in the colour 'daino' which is a beige. I absolutely love it, and it was well worth the investment. My preference when it comes to investment handbags is Saffiano leather rather than smooth or pebbled leather due to the fact that it is waterproof and much more durable, thus making it harder to mark or damage. Personally, I would never buy a designer piece from anywhere other than a reputable source such as the official website, a reputable outlet such as those in Kildare Village, or Brown Thomas. It is just too easy to unknowingly purchase a fake, especially online. It can sometimes be very hard to tell the difference between a good fake and a genuine, authentic piece as some good fakes, such as fake Louis Vuitton bags, now even have fake serial numbers. Unfortunately, Furla only has the Linda bag in the small size in the colour 'onyx' which is a black on their website. I will link it below along with a high street lookalike.

I bought the silk bandeau that I have tied on the handle of my handbag in Kildare Village reduced from €59 to €9. I bought both of the colours that were available, and I love them as they are such a classy accessory. You're not limited to just wearing them as an accessory on the handle of your handbag, though. They can also be worn around your neck, wrist, or as a headband. They are 100% silk and made by Furla, so they are obviously amazing quality and worth every cent. In my opinion, you can never have too many. You can view Furla's full range here.
