Blue Biker Jacket and Skinny Glitter Jeans + Link Up

Blue Biker Jacket and Skinny Glitter Jeans

Just when I thought Spring was on its way we get this Siberian blast and the temperature has dropped to freezing. It had just started to snow when I set off for work early this morning! The weather warmed up a little bit briefly last week – enough for me to wear a jacket rather than a big coat. I got to wear this bright blue jacket that I bought in the January sale from Mango for the first time.

I have a thing for these stretchy, brightly-coloured biker jackets. It took me all of my will power not to order it in hot pink too. But I reasoned as I already have a pink jacket I’d limit myself to just the blue. Mango and River Island always have a great selection of suedette biker jackets in a multitude of colours. I also spotted some in New Look last week, so I may yet add another one to my collection 😉

Dressing for the current weather conditions, I teamed this blue biker jacket and skinny glitter jeans with wedge boots for a warm and streamlined look.

This jacket is a little shorter and fits a bit tighter than my khaki one from River Island, but it’s fine with a lightweight fitted jumper underneath. Come the Summer, I can wear it with a pencil skirt and heels, or even a flared midi skirt. Right now though that seems like a long way off! Dressing for the current weather conditions, I teamed this blue biker jacket and skinny glitter jeans with wedge boots for a warm and streamlined look.

At the time I had just started to experiment with making jewellery, and I found Nikki’s success story very inspirational.

If I wanted to add another layer for extra warmth I’d wear a cape over it. I like to find ways to get the maximum amount of wear from my clothes. Because the jacket’s quite a snug fit it means the sleeves don’t quite cover my wrists, which is perfect for showing off my new bracelet from Lola Rose. I have long been a fan of the brand, in fact I remember reading about its founder Nikki Gewirtz when the company was in its infancy. At the time I had just started to experiment with making jewellery, and I found Nikki’s success story very inspirational. In fact it’s fair to say that it sparked a love of chunky, semi-precious jewellery in me.

This bracelet is now sold out but there are many, many more to choose from, as well as necklaces, rings and earrings. The bracelets range in price from £25 upwards, and would make a lovely gift for Mother’s Day or a birthday. Every piece comes beautifully packaged – my bracelet arrived in a blush pink padded pouch with stud fastening. The chunky gemstone beads are threaded on a cord, with an adjustable Chinese knot – if you’ve ever struggled to do up lobster clasps on bracelets you’ll know what a bonus this is!

My jeans were also a Mango January sale bargain, and this is their second appearance on the blog already (last time I wore them with the gold sparkly jumper) . I added my much-loved Angel Jackson bag for a bit more colour (previously seen on the blog here and here). I love how the flashes of red and yellow compliment the bright blue jacket.

Are you a fan of biker jackets? If you could have one in any colour what would it be? I’m thinking maybe emerald green or purple 😉

    You look great in this vibrant cobalt blue jacket! I have a few moto jackets from Mango myself. i love the textured black jeans and an all black look with bold color, really cool! The jewelry is lovely, I love the sage green color of the stones and can appreciate jewelry making, as i dont have the patience, or the eyesight!
    Have a great day!

    If I only had to wear one jacket for the rest of my life it would definitely be a moto jacket!

    What a great jacket, a moto jacket in a color besides black is just so fun. And yes it looks great with the sparkle skinny jeans.

    Love the bright blue of your moto jacket! I really like the cropped style and can see why you were tempted to purchase it in pink. And those glitter jeans – wow!

    Simple but such a standout-the bright blue against your black column is so eye catching and then there is that bag! For some reason it reminds me of Mondrian.

    I think my fav color for a jacket like this is exactly the blue you are wearing. And I can totally envision it with a pencil skirt. The metallic skinny jeans are fabulous. I’ve never seen anything like them and they remind me of the pants I used to wear back in my disco days. Sparkle and glitter has always been good 🙂
