Biker Jacket & Lace Up Denim.
Images by K Benson & words by me
With the cold weather coming in fast I wanted to upgrade my wardrobe and replace my worn and tatty leather jacket with a fresh new one. I searched high and low for a stylish and affordable one that would see me through the Autumn/Winter months and still be wearable come spring. I had always wanted a biker style jacket with padded elbows and a belt around the bottom, the likes of which can usually be found for an eye watering price in All Saints. Enough lusting and window shopping though! I found this little gem on the H&M website for a rather conservative price of just £39.99, bargain right? It is faux leather but it's incredibly warm and the under arm is made of a stretchy knit material to keep you that little bit cosier on harsh days and nights. So far, I haven't felt the need to wear a jumper or cardigan with it when out and about but the weather hasn't been too unkind as of yet. My top is from New Look, I wanted to add a little bit of colour to my usually monchrome wardrobe and so found this denim piece in the Southampton store. It's sold out online, but you can probably find it still in store somewhere unless they have all been snapped up! It's a great piece to transition the summer lace up trend into A/W and one of my favourite items to wear at the moment. These pictures were taken in Tangley churchyard, which is one of my favourite spots in North hampshire. My boyfriend and I often go for walks through the forest and have a wander through the churchyard and inside the church itself. It's a really beautiful countryside area surrounded by greenery and nature, if you're ever in Hants then I would suggest checking it out!
