How beautiful is this contrast khaki sleeve jacket that Mary Jane Fashion kindly sent over. I've been a fan of the contrast sleeve for a while. For years, I've been lusting over a £2000 leather, contrast sleeve, classic Burberry trench but unfortunately I don't ever see myself having that many pennies to spare on a coat. This little number however fulfills my need contrast-sleeve needs in the meantime. What's even better is that it's under £40, a whole £1960 cheaper than my Burberry pipe dream! For such a cheap price, it's unbelievable how expensive it looks and feels. It could easily be mistaken for part of Zara's luxury collection. Needless to say, I will not be taking it off for quite some time!
I wore this little concoction of garments to a date the other night. I picked up the dress in the post-Christmas sale. I love the lightweight fabric and everyone knows I'm a fan of the smock shape. The colour of it is gorgeous too! I'm slowly warming to the colour red more and more now my hair is a little lighter and does not clash horribly with it. A year and a half down the line, my Topshop Allegra boots are still my "go to" shoes. I'm so glad I made the investment into them because they are easily the comfiest heels I own. I even love how scuffed and distressed they look from my constant wear.
I'm making the most of my time before returning to university on Monday. For example, last night my housemates and me decided to build a fort in our hallway, drink wine, eat my One Direction birthday cake and listen to Beyonce. Yes, I am 22 years old! We're contemplating building an even more extravagant one tonight and making it a permanent house fixture. I'm sure our landlord would appreciate it!
