Lace-Ups and Leather

I’m not big on cold weather, that’s probably the only down
side to the summer ending. However, autumn means plenty more opportunities to
wear my leather jacket, and I will always jump at the chance. I’m very passionate
about leather jackets, as you will be able to tell over the next few months,
and I can’t wait to dust off my collection and add to it.

I’ve always had a weird love for jackets, they’re so much
fun to wear. It’s nice to be able to change the vibe of a whole look with one
item, like a coat of jacket. Sometimes I can wear a leather jacket in a really
casual setting, but also to something more formal. On the other hand, I can
find blazer-style jacket or a collared khaki coat that is super stylish and
little more chic. It all depends on my mood. For most days, a leather jacket
will do for me, usually faux leather because it’s way cheaper and just as good.

I have recently become obsessed with these lace-up block
heels from Next. Block heels are a big love of mine because they’re much easier
to walk in that the barely-there sandal or even wedges. I never go for heels
that are too high, in case I want to wear them in a casual setting like today. The
first thing I was drawn to was the style, lace-up is on trend and easy to wear
(I have a weird struggle with buckles). When the shoes arrived at my home, I
realised they’re actually faux suede *heart eyes*, which always looks awesome
against contrasting fabrics like denim. Because the colour is neutral, all the
attention doesn’t have to be on the shoes and I can wear something with an
eye-catching pattern, like this cotton tank top.

I managed to bag this top for £3 in the TK Maxx sale and
have been bargain hunting in their stores ever since. It’s easily one of my
favourites, simply because there’s so much stuff! I got a playsuit for £5 and
another knitted jumper for £2! I was so excited about the new buys I tweeted
around twenty times in five minutes, my followers were so confused. My top was
a fun piece to add to the top over my favourite bright denim jeans and Topshop
