The Forgotten Jacket…

September 29, 2010

I had completely forgotten about this jacket and thought I’d given it to charity years ago, as I often have huge clear outs of things I no longer wear. But before I give any thing away I always let my friends have a mooch first and the other week my friend and I were going through new and old charity ready bags when I came across this jacket and totally fell back in love with it. I couldn’t even remember why I was giving it way in the first place!? I soon grabbed it and put it on and been wearing it pretty much ever since. It gives girly dresses a bit of edge like I’d been after. I’ve teamed it with a vintage dress I brought at the weekend from a Vintage Fair, as I brought a couple of dresses I spent today shortening and hemming them ready for wearing.

I’m also wearing new socks I brought from H&M, I loved the idea of wearing socks with boots or brogues in the winter to keep my feet nice and warm but wasn’t sure if the look would suit me. If it would just make my legs look stubby or if I’d even like the socks with tights once I’d tried them together but I’m pleased to say I rather like the look. I’m a fan of layered clothing as it adds texture and depth to outfits and the socks are another little layer. I think this will be a fall / autumn trend I will definitely be adapting into my styling. I’m looking froward to wearing and showing you my other new buys and some uniform I’m getting from work. I’m hoping to get some more outfit photos done in the evenings before it gets to dark and the light is gone. I fear over the darker winter months I may have to do photo taking indoors!?
