If you follow me on Instagram, you will already have seen this outfit. I wore it for an impromptu night out last week.
American Vintage Jacket, Jigsaw Vest, Topshop Baxter Jeans, Becksondergaard Back, Mango Sandals
I'm a pretty lazy dresser these days and whereas in my heyday, I used to love a pretty dress and a chance to sparkle, these days, I've adopted the uniform of many a grown woman - a pair of jeans with a little something to show that you tried "a little". My trying "a little" was me busting out a jacket. And if you've followed me for a while, you will know that I am not much of a jacket wearer, especially blazer type ones. I usually feel a little too "done" in them. But I don't argue with the fact that a jacket really pulls an outfit together.
The one I'm wearing is the American Vintage Paterson jersey jacket. I won a voucher to spend at The Dressing Room in St Albans and the jacket was one of the things I ordered. They only had it in the "Dolphin" colour at the time which is a pale grey and whoever thought up that colour description up is a genius because they could not have described this colour better. To be honest. I didn't have high hopes for it but it actually turned out to be a brilliant fit! The arms are slim and flattering but not overly tight and it seems to shape in nicely at the waist in a not too obvious way.
The rest of my outfit?
Many shades of grunge.
I wore a very old vest top from Jigsaw which is very food accommodating in that it skims the body. The black Topshop Baxters also came out as did the fangledy dangledy Mango sandals. The sandals look lovely but can I be bothered to wear them on a day to day basis? Nop because I hate lacing them up. These are the sandals to avoid if you are having a day out "clothes shopping". You waste valuable shopping time trying to tie them if you've been trying things on. The Becksondergaard clutch got it's first outing and last but not least, my first concession to dark green this season - my toes which are done in H&M's Envy. I did tell you I was going green this season!
