A fashion & lifestyle blog

Looking at these pictures, I've decided it's definitely time for a hair cut. The lion's mane is getting a little unmanageable now, which is quite sad considering how long I've been growing it for. If you'd told me 5 years ago I'd no longer have to wear extensions and was actually at the stage where my hair was too long, I would have told you that you were in no uncertain terms, clinically insane. Oh how times change.

This gorgeous little jacket from Lily Vintage is definitely the focal piece of this particular outfit! I'd seen it hanging in the window of my local vintage store a few weeks ago, and it's been on my brain pretty much non stop since then which essentially meant that I had to buy it. So last week, armed with a deadly Halloween hangover, I braved the busy streets on a Saturday morning and to my astonishment I found it still hanging up in the shop. Admittedly, it's probably a little big, however there was no way at all I was leaving it there and we all know I like a slouch fit.

I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit quite simple, so my Cheap Monday jeans and little Boohoo crop were an absolute must. Please excuse the almost glow in the dark white skin, I am quite possibly the palest person ever. My boss is half convinced that I am a vampire.

I finished off the outfit with these new Topshop shoes - I can't remember the name of them - which I have had my eye on since the summer and saw in the sale last weekend for £30, I couldn't really say no to them!

How would you have styled this jacket? Remember to check out Lily Vintage on ASOS Marketplace!

  3. I like how you've styled it - I think the only other way I might have done it is with a black bodicon dress and boots xx
