Three outfits

I may have spoken too soon in the last post, because the past few days (save for the weird weather we had this weekend) have been oddly warm, and more than once I found myself taking my jacket off while walking around outside.



This jacket is an old friend. I bought it 50% off on sale from Sportsgirl in 2008 (leather jackets were really in that winter), and remains the most expensive piece of clothing on my wardrobe. I wore it nonstop for about 3 years but last year I decided I didn't like it anymore and set about looking for another. Luckily I never found the perfect one because my love for it has somehow been rekindled and I'm congratulating my 15 year old self for picking one with the perfect length. So... that is the unnecessary and boring story of my leather jacket.



You have met my Wednesday dress before. It shrank in the wash and now I can only wear it with tights. Don't buy anything 100% rayon guys, it'll just break your heart. Although the fabric seems a bit stretchy, maybe I can put it on some sort of makeshift rack? Oh, this page has some tips, but it's accusing me of having machine washed it when I did handwash in cold water, gosh.



I'm totally turning into a jumper person, and this is my new favourite. It was my dad's but he asked me if I wanted it because it "looks like something I'd like" and I said yes please, thank you. For the longest time I thought it was navy and I kept planning outfits in my head around it being navy but when it got cold and I pulled it out again I realised it was black. Sorcery. A different black to my jeans apparently, which is really annoying me in these photos.

Jeez, I just rambled on like an old lady who's been living alone. Which I almost am, since I haven't socially interacted with anyone outside of the uni (and hospital) setting in about 2 months. Wow, I should line up something fun. In the meanwhile you'll probably be seeing me pull out the old 50mm lens again to make my boring pictures seem marginally more interesting.

  2. I like your jackets and the jumper especially because I'm literally obsessed with them haha. Sometimes when my life is too boring to post about which is maybe 90% of the time (except for now) I force myself to visit a neighborhood I've never seen before and take pictures.

    1. I should have clarified but I'm a med student so I'm usually at hospital for uni, not as a patient :)

  10. I know right! Here it has been freezing in the morning but burning hot just a few hours later.

    I like your jackets, and jumpers are always the best.

  11. The weather was totally weird this weekend LOL. It's great you are still getting so much wear out of a reliable coat. The story of your jumper is cool. I have a jacket that used to be my dads and I love too.

  12. I LOVE that leather jacket! I am really liking these outfit posts. And don't worry about your social life, I'm sure it picks up again soon :)

  13. I know what you mean, the weather's been so up and down lately! When I went to see Vivid I didn't even need a jacket, it was so bizarre. I really like your leather jacket by the way, I've always wanted one but have never found one that's *just right*...

  14. I feel you on the weather. It's supposed to be 'spring' here but it's been raining non-stop for weeks! I can't remember the last time I saw the sun!! But you look absolutely adorable. Your loafers are to die for, and I love the trench! Sorry to hear about your dress shrinking. If it's any consolation, my mint green pants have now turned lilac in the wash. Oh, the washing machine chronicles!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog as well. Would you like to keep in touch and follow each other?

  15. I love your leather jacket! It's great when you start liking old favorites again :)

  16. In your defence that jumper does look navy to me too haha. I have to really adapt my eyes when I'm looking at clothes to figure out the colour.

    That is a very lovely coat. I have my coat from when I was 16 and it's the best I've ever had although I do try and find other options just because I'd like to try something new. I also adore your shoes, the monocrome feel of them is very lovely.

    A lot of my clothes aren't worth selling on ebay either haha, I've sorted the stuff out I'm going to just bin with holes and things that are still in alright condition. I found things with tags... shameful me! I completely agree, I've dug up a few bits that I can't get rid of due to them holding a memory so those I'll make some room for definitely!

  17. Ohhh, that jumper is neat ...but it does look navy to me too actually. How deceitful eyes can be. And wow, I think your 15-year-old self is pretty awesome for buying the jacket. It still suits you nicely! It looks pretty darn cool.

    I myself can't wait for warm weather, and I know I will hit myself when it actually gets warm here because I can't stand the heat.

  18. i think every time you post photos of that trench coat i comment about how i want one and i still haven't just gone and bought one! also i hate when clothes change colour on you (or when you don't properly register the colour in your mind beforehand, either one, but it has happened to me before!) hope you're able to get out of the house a bit soon, though the cold weather makes me want to stay in all the time so i can see why you might not!
