About this outfit:
I have a really big fetish of going to Trafford Centre and Manchester as I have a lot of love for the city, and this is the outfit I wore this week for a few hours of retail therapy.
The jacket is one of my most favourite finds and I will most definitely wear it out until there are holes in it! It sort of reminds me of an older woman's shawl that maybe a sophisticated woman would wear over a bikini at premium beach bar, definitely not me, and unfortunately as there aren't any premium beach bars in Preston to wear this over a bikini with a straw hat, I had to stick it with a black hat shirt leggings and boots in the rain.
I was worried when I took the financial plunge when spending £80 on a light non thermal jacket as it doesn't look like it would go with much however, the print surprisingly works really well with a lot of things.
I have teamed it with some snake print velvet part leggings (yes! print on print who'd have thought?!) and for the top its a really good basic blouse also from Topshop it's long to cover your bum, as there's nothing worse than wearing thin leggings with your bootay out! Fashion rule numero uno! Something else which this really was a plus for me and my figure was the great fit over the bust and shoulders.
My hat which I am basically attached to 24/7 is from H&M at a bargain price of £10! It looks fab for when you're going out at night if you can prevent people from stealing it, or just in the day to add some edge to your look!
These boots are from Miss Selfridge they are about a year old now but you can pick many similar ones up from high street stores they are really easily replicated, but a real good staple boot, that gives you height when wearing something long like this jacket which can drown you at times. Definitely the best way to convert your look from day to night!
I found that this was a real feel good outfit for a bit of mid-week shopping which wasn't too hot for a shopping centre.
So thats my Trafford Centre look this week and my first but hopefully not my last blog completed! I hope you enjoyed it and spread the word.
