Check skirt and studded biker boots, Pom Amsterdam bugs jacket, Modalu studded satchel

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.

Thick tights and chunky boots toughen up the classic check A-line mini skirt, as well as insulate me from any late Winter chills.

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.

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.

Do you have favourite items of clothing that always make you feel good?

Happy Tuesday! I hope your week got off to a good start 🙂 Welcome to the 100th Style With a Smile link up! As this is a milestone link up it seems quite fitting that it’s a special one. The last seven days have been pretty hectic, but in a good way. As I mentioned in Sunday’s post, I’ve been to London twice. On Wednesday I travelled down to the Bias Cut’s pop up shop, where owner Jacynth launched her own collection of cashmere sweaters.

I can never come away from one of Jacynth’s pop up shops empty-handed…show me fabulous clothes and I simply can’t resist!

I’ve been a big fan of the Bias Cut’s ethos and Jacynth’s mission to end ageism in the fashion industry for several years. I was even lucky enough to model the A/W collection for the website a couple of months ago. Jacynth carefully curates the pieces and only selects the most flattering designs made to high ethical standards. I can never come away from one of Jacynth’s pop up shops empty-handed…show me fabulous clothes and I simply can’t resist!

On this occasion I treated myself to something I’d had my eye on since I first saw it online. This gorgeous Pom bugs jacket wasn’t in stock when I modelled some of the A/W collection, but when I saw it on Shirley I was all heart eye emojis! Luckily for me there was one in my size so it was meant to be! I adore the bug embellishments and little tassels. What you can’t see (because I forgot to get a photo of it) is the beautiful lining. I just love everything about this jacket! Sadly it’s now sold out but there are other equally fabulous jackets still available (like this one that I adore!).

My bargain blouse

I teamed my lovely new Pom bugs jacket with skinny glitter jeans and a gorgeous Hawes & Curtis blouse that I found in a charity shop. It must have been my lucky day because I found three of the same design in different prints in my size. The blouses fit perfectly, and best of all…they only cost £3.75 each! What a find! They are fitted at the waist and have a little stretch in the fabric so they’re really comfortable. I’m obsessed with pussy bows at the moment too!

A surprise blogger meet up!

And look who I bumped into at the pop up…Jacqui, Anna and Valerie! It was such a lovely surprise to finally meet up with them after being friends online for so long 🙂 Meeting up with other bloggers is so much fun…I need to do it more often! Jacqui was with her lovely goddaughter Esther who takes her blog photos, and she kindly took some group shots of us…thank you Esther 🙂

 

Last week’s favourites were…

Nancy of Nancy’s Fashion Style, Jennie of A Pocketful of Polka Dots and Grace of Color and Grace!
