One for him, one for her and one for Mammy. Friday fashion.

It is all about Penneys this week with a few pieces from Tesco for boys thrown into the mix.

First up for boys if you are starting to think of Christmas, there is nothing more adorable than a shirt and dickie bow pairing and this cute shirt from Penneys would be gorgeous with wine chinos or paired over dark blue jeans. I love this black denim shirt and top combo which would be really cool over grey jeans, as would this NYC motif hoodie instore this week.

Popping into Tesco this checkered shirt caught my eye, it is a beautiful green colour in reality ,the light is slightly distorting but trust me it is a beautiful shade of green.

I love this cute polar bear long sleeved top for boys and is perfect for all the kids Christmas parties coming  up over jeans. Or if Christmas jumpers are your little mans thing, then this pom pom jumper in Tesco would fit the bill nicely. If you want to go the whole hog, of shirt,dickie-bow and Christmas print then here is the shirt for him. How cute is the print on this boys shirt!

I love this other blue checkered shirt in Tesco at the moment, I am always impressed by the softness of their little boys shirts which won’t irritate sensitive skin. And how cool are these pants and suspenders? All tops and shirts would be lovely over this pants so you can mix and match over the holidays.polar bearboys xmas jumperchristmas shirt boy

Back to Penneys for little girls this week I absolutely fell in love with this frill collared denim shirt which will give you lots of different looks paired with skinny jeans, skirts and pinafores.

They have some beautiful tops in-store at the moment for girls, these two pretty blouses are perfect to be paired with cord shorts or skirts for a more dressy look and later over jeans for a more casual look.penneys blouses

 

I have a weakness for coats and these two new into Penneys for girls are too cute. The green winter coat with pink faux fur collar is your perfect Christmas coat and I love the grey boucle coat with the duffel buttons, this grey coat is perfect in the car as it is nice and thin but cosy aswell.

If you are searching for some party dresses for your little girl, Penneys are really ramping up their stock now and there are some beautiful pieces in store. For unicorn obsessed girls this tutu style dress will be sure to keep them happy. The navy floral embroidered dress is stunning and made it home with me so keep an eye on my Instagram as I will be posting some pictures once I put it on A.

I haven’t seen this style girls dress before and I love the velvet striped detail on it, it is a really rich looking fabric and looks far more expensive than what the cost it. The blue velvet and gold dust dress is devine and the picture doesn’t do this dress justice, you need to see it. The little bows on the shoulders are lovely and the gold dust sparkling across the bottom of the dress is beautiful. And lastly if you prefer a more traditional style party dress this gold sparkle bow dress will fit the bill. Penneys have cardigans of all lengths in store to suit all these dresses and the others that I haven’t featured so you will be sure to find a complete outfit in the one place.penneys velvet bluepenneuys velvue blue goldpenneys gold dress

Boots! These three pairs of girls boots are perfect for Christmas with their sparkles. The lace up style is a glitter explosion, I love them and the bow detail  boots in red and black will suit any outfit.

 

 

I ran into Zara and these two dresses caught my eye. I think the picture of this star dress doesn’t pick up the beautiful shimmer of the material and I love the frill sleeves. Overall though the colour didn’t do anything for me but I think this is a gorgeous dress and definitely a party dress for someone over the Christmas. Pop over to my Instagram stories to get a look at this gold sequin dress to see it in all its glory later. It is quite large fitting, I tried on a medium and think if I were to buy it I would get a small but I loved this dress on. The sequins drip off the dress and move with you so perfect for all the dance floor moves at upcoming Christmas parties.

Back to Penneys and I literally wish I had an open credit card this week with all my finds!

I featured their new leather coats last week and now they have it in a beautiful wine colour. The dusty pink coat was forty euro, quite large fitting closed but extremely cosy to wear.

 

So this coat is a bit out there for me but I have fallen in love and only wish I had somewhere to wear it. The block colour combos of pink,white and grey I think are stunning. For only forty euro it is such great value, the quality is really good and I have not stopped thinking about it since I tried it on.Again it is quite large fitting, I tried on a ten and even with my bust it was roomy.

I love this mustard frill cardigan and would pair it over this frill pleather skirt , a camisole and with opaque black tights and ankle stiletto boots for a night out or 100deniers and wedge knee high boots for a more casual look.

 

The dresses are stunning off the hanger and I was really disappointed with the fit on the bust as Penneys have been generous in sizing as of late with their wrap dresses. I tried on the ten ,hence why you can only see the side profile pictures 🙂 If you were to go up a size these dresses are really good value.

Here she is , “The” velvet wrap dress. It is in-store right now in wine and a midnight blue colour. I bought the wine and it is my Christmas day dress, we all want to be comfortable for that big feed and the ten is this is roomy and extremely comfortable to wear. For only sixteen euro its great quality and a great price.

I wanted a cosy roll neck jumper and picked up this pink sparkly jumper for those crisp Winter days out. Cardigans are everywhere instore and I thought this pearled grey long cardigan would be lovely over jeans and the leather skirt featured earlier with the many skinny ribbed  polo necks in-store right now.

I am a huge fan of jumper dresses in the Autumn and Winter, paired with black tights and knee high boots and these two caught my eye this week. I love the richness of the red roll neck dress, it was on the hanger as an off the shoulder dress but kept slipping up off the shoulders so I styled it as a roll neck and think it looks pretty nice.And lastly this white cable knit, bell sleeved dress took me by surprise on how comfortable it was to wear and how much I liked it even with the bare leg,although tights are a must in the weather and all deniers,designs and colours are in-store too to match up to your choosing.

One for him, one for her and one for Mammy. Friday fashion

I have just about made it in for Friday due to gremlins being at play but better late than never! I have posted over on my Instagram and Facebook pages (@Dodeestodaquiris) this week how I had huge success with the Marks & Spencers sale and now the many many packages arrived I wanted to share a few pieces with you that I picked up for the kids.

First up for the boys, no Christmas is complete without a Christmas shirt and this navy Santa print does the job and will be perfect for one of the kiddies Christmas parties they will go to over the holidays with a pair of jeans paired with it. How cute is the print!

ms xmas shirtNext up is this lovely Dinosaur print tracksuit. The dinosaur is a fluffy motif which is great for little men who love the sense of touch. I love the mustard detail in the band of the pants ,matching into the jumper. My little man is obsessed with pockets and will love this star print hoodie which is fleece lined and has the obligatory pockets for hiding his little toys in.

This grey checkered shirt is lovely, soft and cost on the inside to keep your little boy warm. I think this will be fab with a pair of faded grey jeans and also more formally over a pair of wine chinos.ms shirt grey

And lastly I wanted to pick up another warm cardigan that would keep my son warm in the car on the morning rush to playschool and this beautiful red one fits the bill. There are no strings on the hood to be pulled out ( bonus!)ms red hoodie

I popped into Outfit for kids in the Dorothy Perkins store in Limerick to see had they updated their stock since opening and found a few new pieces in-store. This navy jumper with star shirt collar underneath caught my eye as a perfect Christmas day outfit and this navy knit hoodie would layer over perfectly.

Popping by Zara I had to pick up this long sleeved top for my little artist, at only €4.99 it is a steal!

For him and her, both bargains from M&S I needed Winter gear if we get cold weather and snow and these snowsuits fit the bill perfectly. I picked these up for twenty euro each, a complete bargain! Fleece lined and waterproof ,the weather won’t stop us from venturing out for walks in the cold. You can see the reflective zips here too which are great for when dusk falls when out and about from a safety perspective.snowsuits

For her this week from my Marks and Spencers haul here are the lovely pieces I picked up.  I love knit dresses on little girls with boots and chunky tights. Add a cute print into the equation and M&S have hit the spot with this beautiful cloud motif  frill shoulder,knit dress. I will pair this with the grey tights (not pictured) that came with it and these stunning silver sparkle boots I picked up for twenty euro in the sale. I love these boots as they are a very versatile colour and will go under a variety of colours.

I was pleasantly surprised when I unpacked this pink “Smile” jumper and dress as I had believed it to be an all in one piece. However the striped piece is a sleeveless dress, meaning I have two outfits in one as both could be worn with other pieces for different looks.

I need this in an adult version please! This cobalt blue sparkle frill dress is fabulous and will grow with your little girl from a dress now with tights to a tunic later as she grows taller with leggings underneath.Same goes for this lovely Peter Pan denim collared dress.ms blue dressms denim

And lastly from M&S for herself is this rich pink, sparkly, fleece lined cardigan, again another in-car purchase ,guaranteed to keep my little girl cosy on the school run.ms hoodie pink

In Outfit for kids in Dorothy Perkins,this cute little fox in a pocket pink jumper caught my eye in the girls section, I would love this over a little skirt or skinny cords.

And pairing this beautiful cream, fur lined coat from Penneys for younger girls your little woman would be all set to brave the elements,in style.penneys girls coat

 

For Mammy this week ,I abstained from the M&S haul and confined that to shopping for the kids and picking up some Christmas presents but I did see the following pieces out and about during the week.

In Penneys I fell in love with the colour of this pleather jacket and was impressed with the softness of the material. I didn’t add to my collection as it is the wrong time of year for short coats in my opinion but if you were on the market then you can’t go wrong with this.

Popping into Dorothy Perkins and with Christmas party season and outfits firmly in mind ,these jeans are top of my wish list! Pop over to my IG stories and Facebook page for a video on the sparkle, they are amazing! If you are brave enough to wear them during the day you could dampen them down a little with this beautiful cream floral print jumper or if it is Christmas jumper day in the office, this Penguin jumper is one that someone has to buy me, given my penguin obsession! This leather floral embroidered skirt also has twenty percent off at the moment and will suit lots of different looks to get you through the Winter period.I paired it with the floral jewelled jumper here for a more casual look .dp sparkly jeans

Another wish to my Christmas list is this box chain black handbag in Dorothy Perkins.dp bag black

 

In Zara this week I spotted a few pieces that would not suit me but I really liked all the same. This pink  jewelled coat is  gorgeous and would be beautiful over the green floral dress and skirt with skirt combo pictured here. The long space themed black dress is a beautiful print and would be fab with a black leather jacket over it.

I love this grey pearl studded blouse and the grey pearl jumper is a steal at only €17.99 and so soft to wear ,its the ultimate cosy jumper. Both would be lovely paired over leathers or skinny jeans.zara grey shirtzara pearl grey

Bags are high on my wish list for Christmas and either of these two beauties from Zara would put a big smile on my face. I love the yellow ring bag and was surprised by how spacious it is inside. The deep wine studded bag is a perfect bad to blend in with this seasons colours.

Stop all your looking I have found THE Christmas party dress and skirt if you are brave enough!Oh the sparkle is just devine!zara sparkle dresszara sparkle skirtzara sparkle dresszara sparkle skirt

 

And lastly, grab yourself a bargain and invest in one of Zara’s well known best sellers. They really are the Queen of Biker jackets. I have a few leather and suede one’s from Zara and this mustard suede coat is not only gorgeous but a steal at €29.99!

Run now:)
