Reasons for and against Biker jacket v Aviator jacket

All of my thoughts have turned either my trip to Canada in October or Lima Dreaming at the end of December, two very different trips with very different weather.

I spotted this burgundy biker jacket by Zara the other day and I fell completely in love with colour. I am already planning outfits and deciding what bags would work with it.

My reasoning for my desperate need to buy this jacket is my trip to Canada. I an going to Vancouver Island so the weather shouldn’t be freezing at the end of October but it will be wet some days. I would team it with my new corduroy cap, also from Zara for a perfect combination for walks, play parks as I will be with my little munchkins.

The only downside to this jacket is the zip, I don’t know how i feel about the diagonal zip! I know this may seem trivial but I would rarely fasten it and this is why I like symmetry.

So, the question is should I opt for the Aviator jacket instead? It is only available in black but it gives perfect symmetry when open and the new cap would still work perfectly.   it would go over anything and everything ) It would also mean I could stick with my beautiful colourful bags (very important)

I do think I need to go to Zara and try them both on immediately.

I could add to the drama by including other jackets in the dilemma but at this price point it keeps it fun.

How many ways can you wear black?|

I have never been a fan of wearing black as I think it s very dull but I have recently found myself in the  position of having to wear black five days a week. I am looking upon it as a challenge and enjoying it., although I have to admit the fake tan is coming out shortly so that I can ditch the black tights.

The black may fade to navy upon a few occasions as it makes the whole outfit look softer.

I had very pieces to build this new work wardrobe on, an Isabel Marant black skirt and a Zara slip dress were about it so what did I buy?

This black dress with a blue trim works great with my chain ankle boots or my wardrobe staple blue Acne Starboots. It will also work well with bare legs and Birkenstocks.

I have just been browsing The Dressing Room’s website and I have fallen in love with this Muubaa Biker jacket so I had to build an outfit around it! I kept it laid back with boyfriend jeans  which are a great favourite of mine.

The jacket will also look just as good over dresses with some biker boots.

I just love these boots from Zara, they will be great with jeans but also I will wear them little dresses. As they are so high I will keep the top covered so that the legs can stay bare if possible!! It will make a great outfit for drinks with your friends.
