Outfit: Leather and Silk

cardigan: Urban Outfitters, top: SuperTrash, bra top: ASOS, trousers: Ted Baker, scarf: French Connection, boots: Schuh, ear cuff: ASOS 

If I could, I’d live in leather trousers. They add coolness to any outfit, and I love pairing them with tees and more feminine textures like this Supertrash silk top. Real leather is also great in any season as it’s surprisingly cooling in hot temperatures and warming in winter, so although they’re pricey they are a good investment. I scored these amazing Ted Baker real leather and jersey trousers for £30 in an amazing Selfridges sale last year. Insane!

I Want it Wednesday – Studded Shoes

Studded Shoes

1. Jeffrey Campbell Elegant Stud Loafers

2. Marc by Marc Jacobs Studded Platform Booties

3. Diesel Exposure Magnete Metal Stud Lace Ups

Obsessed with everything studs right now – studded jackets, studded bags – and studded shoes are one of the easiest ways to edge up an outfit. I usually think of studded shoes as boots, but Topshop have spiked up flats with their now everywhere Vectra3 flats. I’m also surprised by how much I love these Diesel trainers. They could have gone a bit too bling but the colours and materials have kept them cool.

I Want it Wednesday – Red Chanel Jacket

Red Chanel Jacket - Alessandra Codinha (Satorialist)

source: http://www.thesartorialist.com/

In love with this red Chanel jacket WWD reporter Alessandra Codinha is wearing. I love her teaming of it with tiny little shorts, as it’s one of those pieces that could style old (she said she stole it off her mum). It would smarten up any outfit without actually making it smart, if you know what I mean, so I’d wear it with a high-waisted leather skirt, loose-fitting crop top and little black ankle boots. Doubt I’ll be able to find this exact piece but I’ll be on the lookout for some similar jackets. There’s this McQ blazer, but it’s a little boring – I love the white and black lining on the Chanel jacket.
