SWINGS + ROUNDABOUTS

So this is my first ‘proper’ post since returning to the UK. We had such a lovely time in Portugal and I’m gutted to be back, but I’ve got straight back in to blogging! Today Dan and I found ourselves at the local park with my little nephew, and with camera in tow, decided the spot was a perfect place to take some outfit snaps. I wore my new denim jacket that I got from Choies. I’m pretty much obsessed with the site right now as they have some great bargains and the stock is always rotating so there’s great new arrivals on a weekly basis. I went for this jacket as I love it’s boxy oversized shape. It’s actually one size, so would fit any size from an 8 to a 14 comfortably. The shape on my figure reminds me of the typical 90s denim jackets that had a real boyish shape and loose fit. This one looks really cool with the sleeves rolled up too.

Blouse – Topshop at Outfit*
Jeans – Joni by Topshop
Boots – Maxwell by Topshop
Faux Fur Collar – H&M
Rings – Handmade from Portugal

I wanted to let the jacket be the main focus of my outfit, so styled it simply with a white blouse, black skinnies, and my new favourite chunky black boots to set off the monochrome aztec patterned panels. I threw on my trusty faux fur collar too to keep off the chill and make my neck feel less bare from having my hair up! 

Have you shopped with Choies? How would you style the jacket I got?

    The aztec detail really adds a nice bit of 'pizazz' (yep, I just said pizazz) Hannah x
