Today has been great. Not only did we manage to avoid the impending rainstorm hovering over town while we shot these photos, we also ended up stopping off for spontaneous cocktails on the way home. Who doesn’t love a Pornstar Martini at 2pm on a Sunday? This gal does.
I’m now waiting for our veggie gammon roast to cook so I thought I’d fill you in on the latest additions to the LJLV wardrobe, namely in the form of this freakin’ stunning statement denim jacket and gorgeous embroidered skirt. As I’m sure you’ve noticed – because let’s face it, I’ve banged on about it enough recently, during 2017 I’ve been hugely embracing everything statement or patterned. I mean, honestly, if 2014 Lucy took a peek in my wardrobe right now she wouldn’t recognise me…
ANYWAY, let’s take a minute to first of all discuss the jacket. The utter babes at Shein kindly sent it over to me last week and I immediately fell in love. It reminds me of all things Rolling Stones and I kinda get a real rebellion and retro vibe from it. I love that the embellishment is in sequins too rather than just embroidered as I feel like it gives it a bit more va-va-voom. I went for an oversized fit because, well, this is me we’re talking about and I love the way it fits. The denim is super duper soft too and has a definite stretch to it as well.
Equally, the gorgeous embroidered skirt that Wear All sent me feels totally similar. I’ve been struggling with the size of my hips & bum recently however this skirt is SO comfortable and also super stretchy which makes me feel more confident wearing it. I’ve been wanting to try the embroidered skirt trend so much recently but I hadn’t found one that I liked the fit of however this bad boy definitely fills that hole in my closet and I am so insanely happy about it.
