Military Approval


[Jacket - Topshop, draped knit (worn underneath) - H&M, Jeans - Primark]

I am currently in the middle of 5 days off work, and, as well as baking disasters (I attempted cherry bakewell cupcakes this afternoon, but they were certified "truly unpleasant to eat" by the boyfriend. He was correct.), drinks with friends, finding a new TV show to gorge on and shopping trips, on Friday we took a trip to the Tate Liverpool. We had a great afternoon and saw some amazing works (including pieces by Dali, Warhol, Jackson Pollock & Man Ray). It really made me wish I had more time to visit art galleries & museums. I think there should be an extra day in the week dedicated to cultural pursuits, am I right?!

I wore one of my favourite jackets, albeit a jacket that I neglect a lot, this military inspired wool jacket I got from Topshop a couple of years back. I really love it (I'm one of those people who will love fringing forever and always) & was so excited when I found one left in my size on a sale rack, after being indecisive over whether to buy it at full price. However, it gets neglected quite often because it is a pretty awkward length to wear, but I paired it with a long, draped jumper from H&M and seemed to work, yay!

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend :)!
