Cool Story Bro!
Just as I headed out with my trusty photographer/best friend Carrie to shoot these snaps, I stopped and thought “nah, I’m not struggling down the street in these heels, I’ll go there in flats!” Oh the falsities of Blogger life; tricking our readers into thinking that we would ACTUALLY ever bother with the pain and effort of wearing heels with our outfits! “Oh, these, I’d wear them every day!” Yeah right.
Naturally, as we quickly got into the swing of taking photos and concentrating on dodging cars in the background, I forgot to change footwear. So the Primark flats that I once wore when competing for the British Cheerleading Championships, stayed on my feet whilst I dangled the Topshop ornaments – sorry shoes.
“So, um, what’s the story here? Because you’ve got two pairs of shoes.” Carrie pointed out.
“Uhm, it’s my coming back from the party-last-night look, where I could wear either pairs of shoes and it would still go, it’s like I don’t care… it kind of works…”
“Cool story.” hmm.

Anyway, the ACTUAL story of this post is that I’ve finally got a ‘leather’ jacket! Whoop! And it’s just perfect. I’d not bothered getting one before because of the cost and that when you pay less it usually looks cheap. Then there’s the conundrum of which bloody shape and style to choose. I adore this one which was kindly sent to me from Krisp Clothing. (Remember the brand from, like, school?!) I love the cropped fit, long sleeves and the strap details and now wear it with everything like this beautifully illustrated charity T from Mercy & Wild! (All you veteran leather jacket wearers going “yeah yeah, it goes with everything, we know!”)
New closet staple sorted! p.s I went for a size smaller in this for a nice, fitted cling.
