Going mainstream?

Biker jacket in suede: Dorothy Perkins 
Skirt : Vintage
Jumper : H&M
Blouse : Zara

Biker jacket and tennis skirt combo 

Today I feel like I'm going mainstream with a twist? Or maybe I've lost the plot and conformed, well we will see...

so by now you might be overdosed on tennis skirts and well who can blame you? They've been the staple piece on Instagram for pretty much a year but that doesn't stop me loving them. These days I'm trying to find one that's a little different from the AA style and I think this vintage one does the trick! If you're like me and don't like wearing what everyone else does but like the style it can be quite frustrating! But don't worry I have a solution - go vintage! I can guarantee you will find the piece but with more detailed and more of a quirky twist! 

The jacket is in suede and yes I know suede is also everywhere. But gosh darn it! It's so cute, comfy and warm. Just because a piece or trend is everywhere doesn't mean you can't jazz it up a bit and change round the way you wear to appear different. That doesn't mean I will be wearing ripped jeans anytime soon (I have a quite strong revulsion for them) 
However this weeks outfit findings have made me ponder on how I can mix match items and styles more.

Sailor style

Blouse: Urban outfitters vintage 
Jumpsuit: miss selfridge - sold out - alternative 

Sailor style

Once again yours truly neglects the fact it's winter - the colder it becomes the more powerful and crazier my outfit choices seem to be. It actually poured it down during these pictures hence the drowned rat hair. Anyhow today's outfit is in a cute sailor style. The blouse is vintage and has various layers of frills and I'm sorry but I'm a sucker for anything frilly. Normally vintage pieces would be hard to replicate but I'm pretty sure you could replicate it with any floral blouse. You could use and extra bit of material or use a bow from a different blouse and mismatch them. 

The jumpsuit thing (I've no idea how you're supposed to refer to them) is currently sold out but I tried to find something that was near enough. I paired it with black tights but if you're feeling particularly brave you could go for a thigh high combo, maybe with thigh high boots  

Til the next time,

Statement skater coat

1940s style coat -
Coat: Asos
Scarf : Topshop 

I am so incredibly tired...
So I haven't made a post in a good while. I've been busy with coursework deadlines and uni applications and all, apologies. 

A good winter coat is what you really need in this weather. In the UK as per usual it's raining so this one is just what I  need. It's quite long without boots, just about knee length with. It has pleating all around the back and buttons lining the front and crease in the back. It was thicker than I thought it would be but as winter is coming up that wont be a problem. The coat is a nice skater style, which is one of my favourite styles as it sucks in your waist haha! You can click on the link to shop the coat, I got the scarf from Topshop a couple of weeks ago and its fast becoming one of my most worn scarves.

My umbrella is the most boring item ever.. Does anyone know where to get any statement umbrellas? I could really do with one. But with my track record with umbrellas breaking maybe I should stick to my boring black one.


Til the next time,
