While I have to first of all admit that I have broken my clothing ban that has been in place since January (following the sales), in equal measure I have bought with purpose. I think I mentioned previously that while it seems to be all the range to have a capsule wardrobe, I actually still enjoy a fairly disposable attitude to some of the areas of my wardrobe. However, since my ban, I have gotten totally bored of the high street and even when I have allowed myself to go shopping, nothing has taken my fancy. I have also now found that while I still don’t really like the idea of a capsule wardrobe, I do find myself shopping to fill specific gaps rather purchase another i.e. top aimlessly. With that in mind as well as my recent nuptials, I needed a couple of new outfits and this has been my favourite so far (excuse the posing), Spring Retro:
Jacket: AX Paris at ASOS | Top: New Look | Leggings: ASOS | Trainers: Deichmann | Sunglasses: Warehouse (old)
Bomber jackets are EVERYWHERE right now and I love them, but that being said, one needs to be careful as while they appeal to me (a 28 year old married woman!), they also appeal to thirteen-year-olds and on no fewer than three occasions, have I seen a teenager walk past me in a jacket I was eyeing up only minutes before. I picked this particular jacket up on the ASOS website and I totally love it; it’ll be ideal to wear throughout the spring and summer months, especially as I tend to keep to block colours so this will be a great pop of pattern.
The top has also been an instant hit and can be both dressed up to be worn formally, as well as dressed down; I love that it ties at the back, cinching in my waist (which I stupidly failed to capture -apologies).
The look overall can be enhanced further by wearing a pair of ankle boots, heels or even sandals, as well as a chunkier, more statement necklace.
Until next time xFollow
