So a lot of people won't know this but when I was younger me, my sister, mother and father lived in Canada and traveled around America. From then on it's always been a place close to my heart. Although I was only a very small child at this point and don't remember 90% of it, it somehow truly feels like somewhere I love. Weather I do instinctively remember little things about it or not I don't know. A lot of things I love and do to this day are related to The States such as my interest in Native American culture, my use of the word pants instead of trousers and my obsession with California. But then again I'm sure we all have a place in mind in which we'd rather be!

My mother often tells me stories of our trips to the South West, our visits to Phoenix to see the Cowboys in among all of the cacti and vast deserts, sights of American bisons and sounds of wolves in the night. Funny how I love anything western and my favorite animal is in fact a Bison! It clearly has stayed with me all these years.

I saw this bomber jacket hanging in a seriously cool store near me called The Cove Boutique and felt like it obviously had to be mine. The Cove sells items from the likes of this one and other vintage finds, independent brands, jewelry and unique home ware too. It's really lovely to have somewhere so different in my town as Devon isn't the most out-there of places, so having somewhere like this is just what the town needs for us young, trendy folk.

Under my jacket I've kept it simple but a little bit preppy with a white T, a pair of Topshop Jamie jeans and some hi-top chucks. A nice and plain outfit to go with a statement, satin bomber jacket that makes me feel like an extra in Saved By The Bell or like I'm wearing the hot jocks letterman jacket. I've clearly seen way too many films set in the 90's! But other than feeling like one of Zac Morris' high school pals, I completely adore this jacket. There's nothing quite like buying vintage, having an item that you'll most likely never see anyone else wearing is a pretty awesome feeling.
