The Jacket I Needed In My Wardrobe

The Jacket I Needed In My Wardrobe

Oh hey there Friday! Another week has flown by and I’m also surprised at how fast summer is going too! I had been holding onto summer with every ounce of my being but as soon as it’s grey skies and rain, all I can think about is winter coats, layering and where to start looking for some new boots. Although I’m not ready for all of that quite yet, I must admit I am slowly entering the transition period with my wardrobe and I’ve already made my first Autumn/Winter(ish) purchase, with this faux leather biker jacket.

Now I wouldn’t class a biker jacket as seasonal, it’s definitely an all rounder as far as I’m concerned but it’s certainly a piece I knew I wanted in my wardrobe by Autumn. I’d been on the look out for a replacement ever since I got rid of my last biker jacket whilst having a Spring clean of my wardrobe. I’d worn that jacket to death and although I loved the style, after years of wear it was time to let it go and look for a replacement. I finally found one that fit (I often have long arm problems) and that I liked the style of whilst in Topshop the other day. It’s faux leather but that didn’t put me off because my last biker jacket was too and I wore that so, so much yet it still lasted for ages. I also like the fact that this one has a faux shearling detachable collar. You know I love my versatile pieces and I like how it gives it a completely different look, which will be great for when we move into Autumn.

I wore this outfit combination last night as L’Oréal and I headed to the Porter + Cole launch party. I featured that spot in a recent blog post and it’s fast become a favourite spot, of both of ours. There aren’t many places where you can go for a coffee and want to stay all day and then for a wine in the evening and want to stay all night. This is certainly one of those spots and if you live in Manchester I definitely suggest you go and check it out.

Anyway, that’s all for now. I’m keeping short and sweet today as I’m about to head out. Have a fabulous weekend!

    Definitely a staple jacket to have in your wardrobe! I have a pink motorcycle jacket that I literally wear everywhere in fall — your post made me want to break it out again!

    Those Topshop shoes are too good though! I need those. I have a few faux leather jackets that I love. One is from Topshop actually. Unfortunately it’s way too hot here to even begin to think about wearing them haha. This is definitely one of my favorite outfits you’ve put together so far! I love the belt hanging down, as the jacket belt hangs down too. It looks really chic!

    Beautiful photos as always and styling, I love this combination. I actually love biker jackets lately, I used to think they were just not me at all but now the more people I see wearing them and looking brilliant in them, it’s changing my mind for sure.
