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.

Zara Biker Jacket £89.99 here

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.

 

10 denim pieces you need for summer days………..

I always love pretty denim pieces when summer arrives and a denim jumpsuit is just wonderful. (I do love a jumpsuit)

I know autumn is only a moment away but some of these pieces will see you through to cooler days. I will be lucky enough to have my summer again in January (Lima Dreaming)

This jumpsuit at Anthropologie is probably the perfect place to start and the Whistles pink denim jacket a perfect finish.
