Bomber Jacket and Skirt
It’s been a while since I posted a outfit blog. However, it’s not that I didn’t want to blog, I was unable to. Life has been extremely busy of late and if you don’t know I am teacher also, which has been pretty full on. Anyhow, I’m back and I want to keep this my focus!
I’m wearing my favourite look this year, bomber jacket and skirt. The skirt was my favourite buy in the February sales. I wasn’t looking for anything but when I seen the huge side pockets and splits each side, I was pleased. So pleased I bought two (they were cheap enough!) I intend to embellish one because I loved the shape and fabric, I may never see one again haha. As the weather in the UK is neither hot or cold and sometimes very confusing, our outfits are generally a mix of spring summer and autumn winter.
When I bought the skirt I envisiaged a light tight fitting bomber jacket, so I was glad when I found this. I often find myself gravitating towards sportswear and combining them with smart famine pieces. The mesh jacket is from Urban Bliss, the fabric gives the jacket firm structure and shape.
The two splits each side are the perfect length, not too long or short. I found it balanced out the length and casual cotton / elastane fabric of the skirt giving it a more sophisticated belonging. I matched this outfit up with black heels with lace button holes.
I don’t tend to follow specific trends, I generally wear what suits me and what I prefer at that time. That is why I can have clothing in my wardrobe for months before I chose to wear them, I’m in not rush to keep up with the jones. I do follow catwalk fashion for inspiration and ideas but not keep up with what’s next.
