It's been one of those months where everything has gone mental and my life has been one big ball of busy. I have zero complaints to make about how hectic things are right now, filling my time with fun things isn't exactly painful. With that though has come no new blog content for a few weeks, which is one downside to having a mad schedule. Fear not though, I made some time and posted this gem of an outfit for you!
I decided to make it a good one and go all out with this metallic jacket of dreams, which has been sitting in my housemates wardrobe for weeks calling for me to wear it. Honestly, living with mates is great when you're so fucking bored of your own clothes and want a change. This particular housemate (Elisha, I'm talking about you doll!) has a taste for the crazy and colourful side of fashion. We're talking multicoloured fluff and bright green berets. Yeah, she's as cool as she sounds.

After a while my willpower caved and I had to lay my hands on the jacket, it was as good as I thought it would be. I don't ever want to give it back but I think she might just hate me for keeping it locked away in my room, still tempted though. It was purchased from Pretty Little Thing, a site that I have never actually ordered from before, despite it being stupidly popular in the blogging world - even bigger now Sophia Richie is the face of their new advert! I'd been on there before but never made the plunge to purchase anything, I'm half tempted now though as this isn't the only killer jacket they've got in stock. Take a look at the khaki and orange version, perfect for smashing this seasons military trend!
It was time I embraced some colour and go for some baby pink Dr Martens as well. I obviously couldn't go all the whole way so dulled it down with black jeans and my new Ramones halterneck, a cool change to a basic band tee. I love the contrast of the bright and dark in this outfit, adding some pink to the mix was a great idea but adding metallic was even better. I've been eyeing up the metals a lot this season, seeing skirts and shoes in beautiful shades of metallic. It was cool to give it a try and it's certainly wet my appetite for more.
I had a lot of fun stealing this jacket and getting a feel of what it's like to wear something super sassy. It's made me think about investing in some out-there pieces to spice up my wardrobe a little more. I certainly don't need anymore coats in my life, but I'm keen to find some unique accessories to start me off.
