LISTENING TO : KINGS OF LEON - ARIZONA ♫

T-shirt - Forever 21, jeans - Topshop, shoes - Converse, jacket - The Cove Boutique, necklace - Topman


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.

B.I.G PRINTS

16TH FEBRUARY 2015
OUTFITS
LISTENING TO : THE NOTORIOUS B.I.G - SKY'S THE LIMIT (EXPLICIT) ♫
T-shirt - Forever 21, jacket - New Look, jeans - Primark, booties - Marks and Spencer, belt - Primark, necklace - Topman, watch - Topshop (similar), rings - Accessorize


If you've seen my 'Current Sounds' section (which you can find at the navigation bar at the top of this page) then you'll know already that i'm an avid hip-hop fan, Biggie Smalls being my top choice. I've always enjoyed that sweet 90's sound, super mellow, super chill and a little bit naughty. As we know by now another love of mine is ridiculous t-shirts, and obviously this one is a little bit mad! Little pictures of Biggies face from the iconic The Final Chapter album is pretty hilarious, so thank you Forever 21 for making this brilliant t-shirt which kind of reminds me of Eleven Paris as they're notorious (no pun intended) for their eye-catching and rather ridiculous all over prints.

I feel like my coat is a fitting choice, as the 90's hip-hop scene wasn't shy of a few fur coats here and there. P-Diddy was the ultimate fur king and still is, did you see his outfit at the Kanye West x Adidas Originals NYFW show? That fur collar was something else.

I've added a little more pattern by wearing a thin leopard print belt to the mix and kept the rest of my outfit toned down with a simple pair of black skinny jeans and everyday black booties, which if you haven't gathered I literally wear daily. I'm really obsessed with wearing basic jeans and boots and having a more 'out there' top half at the moment, mainly because these jeans are a security blanket of mine. I've pretty much worn black jeans all winter and i'm going to have to cave in and stock up on more to save my moaning every time I spill something down this pair. I think the fact they're black makes me feel a little more comfortable as I can accidentally spill tea down them and no one will notice, which is a twice a day occurrence for clumsy ol' me as it was only yesterday that I split half a cup over myself and my boyfriends bed sheets, oopsie. Another reason why I need to stock up I feel!
