WhatLauraWore: River Island Cape… or is it a Poncho?

Evening All

If you follow me on Twitter you’ll know I’ve regularly been tweeting about my love for my new bear hat.  Well I’ve recently discovered its a panda.  Anyway, I digress…

Michael and I regularly like to have a little date night.  When you live together its easy to fall into the habit of staying in every night in front of the TV, so this is our way of keeping things alive in our relationship and never getting bored.  This week he took me out for dinner and drinks and to see the Christmas lights in the park that’s in our city centre.  It was fantastic, there was reindeer and little stalls and the whole park was lit up with Christmas lights in the trees and there was a big Santa, a sleigh and reindeer, penguins and polar bears, all lit up.

This is the outfit I wore:


Cream Polo Neck Cape from River Island  (i think this is more of a poncho!)

Batwing Top in Black from Yours Clothing

Black and Stone Spot Plazzo Pants from Yours Clothing

Black ballet pumps from Shoe Zone

Grey FOCCO style bag from Ebay (see my post here)

Beige Panda Grey Eyes Beanie Hat from River Island

Rose gold watch by DKNY

Bracelets by Tresor Paris and Nomination

Pearl heart and diamante earrings from New Look

I’m absolutely loving River Islands seasonal offerings once again.  They’re a store that always get it right in my opinion, when it comes to accessories, footwear, knits and jewellery.  Ive bought some gorgeous faux fur bags and lots of hats, scarves, gloves etc from there recently which I’m sure ill show you all in posts to come.

Hope you’re all well.  This outfit post is a nice little break from all the new products I’ve been trying out recently!

Do you and your partner have ‘date nights’?  What Christmas displays are on in your town?  Are you looking forward to St. Nic coming?

    That hat is so cute! And you look really cosy in your cape/poncho! My boyfriend and i (although we don't live together) have 'date night' too, we either go to the cinema ('cos it's 2 for 1!) or go out for food or drinks somewhere 🙂 Georgie <3http://thehandbagsnthegladrags.blogspot.com/

    Me and my hubby used to date night, but have got out of the habit in recent years, but were talking about it just today and are planning to get on it again, we miss the nights out alone 🙂
