Topshop leather jacket and shirt, H&M jeans and sunnies, ASOS satchel and chelsea boots, misc. rings, vintage briefcase bag, Casio watch

This was my outfit from when Melissa and I went to Brighton. We did do some filming but the video isn't up yet, so I'll do a whole other post about our trip to Brighton when the video is up and running :)

Lately, I love the whole androgynous, 'boy meets girl' trend. I love the mannish boots, loafers and brogues, the clean cuts, oversized boyfriend coats, skinny jeans and masculine accessories. This is definitely my favourite trend for this A/W, now I'm on the lookout for the perfect oversized winter coat, brogue chelsea boots, preferably in oxblood and in a really hard, need-to-wear-in leather, and a black felt boater hat. If I get all of these items, I'll be sorted for this season me thinks. Oh and also some chunky knits to layer up with shirts in the winter. At the moment, I've been rolling up my jeans and pairing them with my trusty chelsea boots quite a lot. It's so comfortable and I love the glimpse of skin between the jeans and boots. Seriously, I wear my chelsea boots so much, anyone who doesn't have a pair, I strongly advise you all to go out a purchase a pair, they're so versatile and I think it's so worth spending a bit more on them as you'll wear them SO much so you do get a lot of wear out of them. They look good in the summer with floaty, floral dresses, but also in winter with jeans; which is why I'm contemplating buying these boots from Topshop, as my current boots are slowly dying as I wear them so much and I know they'll go to good use and will be a good investment for my A/W wardrobe. And even for S/S too.

  12. I'm in utter awe of this outfit, I'd love to wear something like this during A/W! The jeans are fantastic and paired with that leather jacket it just all adds that little bit of edge!

    The Brighton weather looked lovely in these photographs unlike the grey clouds in England today! I really like those chelsea boots; they look very sturdy! I have a pair but sadly the sole has gone in hole so I'm on the look out for a new potensial pair!
