Biker jacket and kitten heels?

These leather kitten heels were a great charity shop bargain at £4. I think they're cute yet very demure which is why I've married them up with my fabulous blue biker jacket. I love the contrast between the two opposing styles of dress. Tough rock chick meets demure lady about town. This is very me. Well, today this is very me. My style isn't about trying to shock or make some big statement. I just like mixing it up and doing my own thing. I love to see what the current trends are, what's in fashion, but it doesn't rule my buying habits. I think that's the main reason why I love vintage and charity shops; the original, one-off is much more interesting to me than following trends.

The colour of the jacket is the main reason I bought it. It called to me from the rack when I was recently in TK Maxx and yes, it was a bit of an attention seeker amongst all the black biker jackets. But how could I resist the siren call of electric blue? Try me on it begged, and who was I to argue? The minute I slipped it's silken sleeves on, the deed was done. The zip slid up gracefully almost to show me how a biker jacket could be elegant and refined. The look today is testament to how versatile I think this kind of jacket can be. I've paired it up with spotty slacks which are very sleek and business like. And I chose the flowered shirt to introduce the rose tones which gave me the perfect lead-in to my coral handbag satchel. To finish off, I chose the bright blue ring for obvious reasons, but also the diamante ring to echo the dressed up element of the outfit.

While I was recently on holiday in Exmouth I wore the jacket with jeans and flats. Biker jacket and jeans - very predictable you'd say. Well, it's here for you to see and compare. The fact is, I love, love this jacket and whichever way I style it up, I think it's going to be a story that will run and run. My passion for clothes is fuelled by fun. I want to continue this love affair for as long as I can and I hope you'll stay and enjoy the ride.

If you have a fashion favourite that's versatile then I'd love to hear about it. Crazy or conventional, I don't mind, I'm happy to share in your pleasure.

  1. Epic Awesomenesss!!!
    Anna, you have a winner wonder your face is pure joy in your photographs.
    Who wouldn't be smiling if they looked this good?

    I think anything can be versatile if you make it so.
    To many people, your jacket would be impossible to style because they just wouldn't "get it".
    You "get" your jacket so it reciprocates and becomes versatile to you.
    It is a team effort.
    Great team!

    1. Samantha, am so pleased to hear your vote of confidence. And you're right, anything can be versatile - it's down to the styling. I have another couple of posts in the pipeline featuring this blue beauty and they do make me smile. xxx

  2. I'm so glad you're loving your biker jacket. That just makes me smile because your love for it is infectious. Isn't it great when you absolutely fall in love with a piece and just want to wear it and wear it. This is what dressing should be about. This is what style is about. Not following endless trends, unless it's a trend that really speaks to you. And so what if you wear it with jeans (and by the way, that jacket could never be predictable)? Doesn't matter a jot! You're enjoying your purchase in the fullest way. Hurrah!
    You are wearing my favourite colour so I love all your blues here.

    1. Thank you Jacqueline, I agree. Dressing should be fun and surely this is why we're all blogging away furiously because we want to share our passion. I would never have guessed that blue was your favourite colour - you wear so many others with conviction xxx

  3. Again, this is an outfit I can so relate to. I also love lady and rough together. I also love electric blue. The bag is a very good accessory here to add a third colour (and also in the blouse). I learned that three colours in an outfit is much more interesting than two.

    1. The handbag was an inspired shoice which I agree lifts the outfit. Am in love with this jacket and know it will feature quite often this autumn, so watch out for it. Great to hear from you xxx
