Just some very quick snaps for this Challenge: I’m afraid I was a little optimistic about the temperature when I decided to abandon my winter coat in favour of a thinner jacket, and even although that jacket was layered up with a wool sweater and, well, a thermal vest, I was still feeling the chill. Back to the coats for another few weeks at least, I fear!
I’m back in jeans again for the second challenge in a row. Sorry about that: as you may have read over on my personal blog, I’ve been feeling totally uninspired by my winter wardrobe recently. I’ve never really been much of a fan of winter clothes, anyway, but by this point in the year I’m just desperate to get into my Spring/Summer stuff again: the fact that the shops are full of gorgeous sundresses and summery skirts (some of which may well have already found their way into my wardrobe), doesn’t really help! Add in a bit of a hair disaster and I find myself just reaching for comfort clothes a lot of the time right now, especially on the weekend.
This jacket was one of my favourite finds of last year. I discovered it tucked away at the back of a rack of dresses in New Look: there was only one left (which just so happened to be in my size!) and it had a rip in the seam under the arm. I could tell by looking at it that the tear wouldn’t be too hard to fix, but New Look are generally really good about discounting stuff that’s damaged, so they knocked off about 20% of the price, and I walked away with a bit of a bargain. I love it when that happens!
I also love the equestrian feel of it, and the little touches like the split sleeves and gold buttons. Sometimes New Look will surprise me with something that’s really nicely cut like that.
Um, this was supposed to be about shoes, wasn’t it? Here they are again:
Well, sort of.
