I’m certainly enjoying this milder weather, which means Spring is almost here! The daffodils are starting to bloom and the trees are in bud 🙂 I took the opportunity to wear a jacket instead of a coat, which I teamed with a check skirt and biker boots. I bought the skirt on eBay last week for less than £5…another little bargain that’ll be a useful addition to my wardrobe.
The key to wearing a jacket at this time of year is to layer it over a fitted sweater; I wear my rollneck jumpers on repeat, they provide endless outfit options. Thick tights and chunky boots toughen up the classic check A-line mini skirt, as well as insulate me from any late Winter chills. I resisted the urge to add a colourful bag and opted for this studded satchel instead. I’ve had it for years but I’d forgotten all about it until the Match Made in Seven Punk challenge. It matches the studded boots perfectly.
SHOP THE LOOK
You may recognise the Pom Amsterdam bugs jacket from a previous post when I went to the Bias-Cut.com pop up shop in London. I’d been admiring it from afar for weeks, and as soon as I tried it on I knew I had to have it. I just love everything about it: the fit, the fabric, the gorgeous lining (which I keep forgetting to photograph!)…and of course the bug embellishments. Those are what really sold it to me.
Having good quality classic pieces (albeit with a little twist) make getting dressed a joy. However many times I wear this jacket I’ll never get bored with it. The same goes for the heart tassel earrings, which I bought at the same time.
