It's All About....The Bouclé
Jackets jacket jackets. Everyone seems to have a jacket this spring. And with so many to choose from it's hard to know where to start. I love a good jacket....she says sitting in a hoodie and some sweat pants but hey, I do try hard sometimes...
Flitting between trying to look hard core glamourous and achieving that awesome one off ensemble without making an effort and looking like I've just dragged myself out of bed, the jacket can help considerably to finish off ones chosen outfit. Today, because the sun is shining, I've decided to look at cream and pastel shades. Unless you have the washed-out dull look about you (strongly suggest this is addressed quickly if so), this colour can suit most people. Top this with jeans and some bang on trend trainers, you're going to look amazing. And with a bag for all your gumpf and a plain t-shirt you're laughing.
And as per this point of his entire blog , here are two versions. Ted Baker versus Asos.
I don't see why looking good necessarily has to cost the earth. It's amazing how similar items can be but for substantially less....unlike my last post where I didn't buy anything due to the sheer volume of champagne, I've gone and got the cheaper outfit below. The whole thing! I simply adore these trainers. How come you can get something so decent for such a ridiculous price (£12)?! This simple but cotton rich t-shirt from Very goes so well with the jacket. This ASOS tote bag finishes the look and is big enough to carry around all manner of things. Maybe some fancy sunglasses....I'll come back to that later!
Below I've replicated the look above but for a different budget. I just love this Ted Baker jacket. Its so so beautiful. It would look good with just about anything. Teamed with a textured white t-shirt from Anthropologie, Ash trainers and Mint Velvet tote bag, this is a strong look for the spring and summer. Even if you mix and match the looks or simply buy one item, you'll look blimin' fabulous!
