Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a great weekend and start to the new week. Apologies for having to skip Sunday’s link up post – I returned from holiday on an overnight flight on Sunday morning, then had to drive from Gatwick back to Cheshire via Cambridgeshire. I finally got home Sunday evening…just in time to go to bed ready for the 5am alarm! I’m amazed I made it through a 10 hour work day feeling so chipper, although it hit me driving home in the dark. I’m still trying to get back to some kind of routine…and then there’s the unpacking and washing all my holiday clothes! It’s good to get back to blogging and catching up with everyone else’s posts though 🙂
I’ve got some holiday outfits to share with you over the next week or so, but today’s outfit is one from before my trip. We popped across to the other side of the quays during a break from work to have a look at the poppy display at the Imperial War Museum North. It really is a stunning sight.
It was quite a chilly day so I wore my snuggly mustard biker jacket. The four colours in these tartan trousers make them very versatile when it comes to selecting tops and accessories. It also helps that the pattern includes my two favourite colours: red and mustard. The last time I wore them on the blog I teamed them with a red belt bag and sock boots, but these satin bow trainers are much kinder to my feet!
I’m a big fan of faux suede moto jackets; they’re ideal for cooler weather when you don’t want to wear a big Winter coat. I have a couple of thinner ones, but this mustard jacket has a soft, fluffy lining. The only downside is it does shed a bit, so I probably wouldn’t wear it over a black jumper. I loved this jacket the moment I saw it in River Island but I waited until it went on sale before snapping it up. It was definitely worth the wait, although I had to wait even longer to wear it because I bought it in Summer!
To be honest, the fit isn’t as flattering as my khaki and cobalt blue biker jackets, but then it is thicker. That doesn’t make it any less versatile though; I could wear it over a maxi dress with tights and boots for a dressier look, or with dark skinny jeans for a casual weekend outfit. I’m sure you’ll be seeing it again over the coming months!
