I did something really rather cool related to my blog today, but you will have to wait until next week to hear about it... but it did involve wearing a nice outfit, and styling such as used to be every day for me, but is now more for occasions where extra effort is required. It was a shame not to capture it myself so here it is!
Today's dress: Heyday Fleur
Bag: Leather Satchel Co (I use it every single day)
Shoes: Swedish Hasbeens Fredrica
Earrings: Bow & Crossbones
But as mentioned, it is not really all that warm. Cue my favourite new eBay score, a 'vintage' (absolutely zero idea how old it is... maybe 80s) cropped leather jacket!
I absolutely adore this jacket! I have been looking for one for years, never found something that both fit and was suitably cropped. This was a very lucky find and risk on eBay - luckily it paid off and it is perfect!
I have a long body, so it might not be as perfectly cropped on a shorter lady. Just right on lanky old me!
Isn't it good?? It's lightly lined so it's not too warm but keeps the cold away nicely. I shall never take it off (except when I wear other jackets... or no jacket... or in winter).
Bonus details are my awesome new shoes from Swedish Hasbeens to replace my knackered ones from last year... Fredricas are the perfect height and the natural goes with errrrrr'ythang.
Do you buy a new thing, love it and wear it every day despite having loads of other things languishing in the wardrobe? I hope it's not just me...
