I've been in the market for a new leather jacket for a while after I'd lost my old one on a night out. I saw the perfect one before Christmas but I couldn't afford it at the time. It since went out of stock and I've been left with a jacket shaped hole in my wardrobe ever since. I've sort of been lacking the casual cool look that a leather cropped jacket can give.  I saw this in Forever 21 yesterday and decided to get it as a stop gap between getting the dream leather jacket. Obviously this one is just pleather, but it does the job and will stop me from craving the look until I find the dream jacket again!

  8. really random but I find it pretty cool that you take your ootd photos in your garden - I tried it today as well for my new blogpost and it was so worth doing it for the quality of the photographs - and risking being watched by your neighbors.
    Love your nail design! x

  11. Love the outfit anyway, the skirt is a great autumn/winter colour that subtly brightens up the black. Your jumper is a great length too and the texture <3
