Monday's Haul: Kildare Village

The past few days have brought with them some really awful weather. My hometown suffered greatly with businesses and homes getting badly flooded. However, everyone worked together to help each other out and things are starting to get back to normal.

On a day when the weather was a bit better I managed to take a trip to Kildare Village and this week’s haul is all about my purchases.

In keeping with the current weather situation I decided to get kitted out in rain gear. They say every cloud has a silver lining and this one is designer!

Hope you enjoy.

Until next time,

This rain jacket is from French Connection. It’s a beautiful winter white colour with a lot of detail. The main body is polyamide while underneath the little details are cotton. I can see myself wearing this to festivals all summer long. It’s also available online. €315 down to €71.

Wellies are probably the most underestimated of all footwear. They are ridiculously functional, particularly in this Irish weather and are becoming more fashionable every year. I like these ones from Polo Ralph Lauren because they almost look like a regular boot with the houndstooth pattern and are perfect with denims or leggings. They have a buckle detail at the top which gives them a luxury feel. €110 down to €39.99.

The leggings are DKNY and are one of the most comfortable leggings I’ve ever purchased. They have a really nice pleather detailing down the side and are a great fit. They sit high on the waist and are perfect with this winter white jacket but also look good with any long top. €70.

The sunglasses were ‘borrowed’ from my sister’s bedroom. Sorry Rebeccca!
