I haven’t made a what I wore post for ages and I already intend to have another one up on my blog towards the end of the month. I used to love doing these posts and being able to show off my unique style. These days however I either don’t have time, or make zero effort.
I recently picked up a new jacket though from Topshop and it’s one I’ve wanted for months. So long infact I mentioned it in a wish list post last year. June to be exact. I remember eying this up in Coventry and wanting to buy it. Then stating I would pick it up when I went to Bristol. I never did mind and in December and January it went into the sales. I went to pick it up then so many times, but I never did due to trying to save money. I do regret that, especially when I looked for it again and it was gone. I was gutted.
Only recently did I think about it again and check out eBay. I’m a huge fan of eBay and have been for a long time, something regular readers on my blog will know!
This jacket (from memory) was originally £50-£60, it went into the sale for £25-£30 and I picked this up on eBay for £25.50. I’m happy with that! Yes it was worn a few times by the original owner and it needed a wash, but that doesn’t bother me at all.
Glasses – Ernest Hemingway.
Lips – Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob.
Black t-shirt (underneath jacket) – Primark.
American flag denim shorts (underneath jacket) – Topshop.
Tights – Tesco.
Sneakers – Vans (LE Star Wars Darth Vader).
I love it and since buying it I’ve worn it constantly. I love my parka from Topshop for cold spring and autumn days, and especially for freezing cold winter. But for the warmer days in spring and autumn, and definitely hot summer days, I NEEDED a good transition jacket.
This is perfect. I’ve always loved the military style look and ten years ago I owned a jacket exactly the same as this. If it still fit me, I would wear it.
I feel so confident and great when I wear this and it’s something I’ll be excited to create more looks and posts about in the future.
I really enjoyed taking these pictures, especially some of the ones my boyfriend took closer to my face as they just look really cool. It was also cool to edit these images and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Me and my boyfriend had a lovely day out and whilst the weather wasn’t amazing, it was just great to walk around and relax. We went out for a pub lunch too and it was nice to just get out of the house and do something other than uni work!
I can’t wait for the nicer weather, I’m excited.
What did you think of my outfit? Let me know in the comments.
Until next time, take care all and see you soon.
