Kirsty / by Cathy Carey

1. Name/Age/Occupation?
Kirsty Lyons. Age 26. Stylist.

2. Tell me about one thing you're wearing.
This coat is one of my favourite things at the moment. It's knitted wool and it has quilted lining so it's really warm. I spotted it on sale during the height of the summer and it seemed like I had to wait for ages until the weather got cold enough to actually wear it! The length of the hem and the sleeves are the main reasons that I love this coat as I feel really swamped when a coat falls below my knee. I also like the fact that it's so textured. 

3. What influences the way you dress?
Social media probably plays a part as I'm always on Instagram and Pinterest and I get ideas from there. However I think that the main thing that influences the way I dress is how comfortable something is, especially for a day in work. If I feel like I'm going to be tugging at something all day it will stay in my wardrobe. I think I shop more practically than I used to and I understand that although I may love that backless top in Zara it will be worn only once and then left in my wardrobe for an eternity. 

4. Tell me about the most complimented item you own.
I bought a long black tunic with side splits on a Penneys trip for Body and Soul this summer and it has to be one of the most complimented things in my wardrobe. I layer it over black polo necks and leather trousers and it seems that every time I wear it someone compliments it. It cost me about €15 and I have worn it so many times. 

5. Last question... summer or winter style?
Definitely winter. Boots and coats are my very favourite things to shop for. I'm also a big fan of layering. I wear long sleeved black turtlenecks underneath almost everything I own during winter. Like this dress actually...!
