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.

 

So many more additions to my winter wish list…..

There are so many pieces landing at the moment I barely know which way to turn! I love to wear new clothes instantly I am not very good at keeping them until the weather changes. The things I love today can all be worn now which makes it so much more fun.

This faux suede trench from Zara is very useful with the wonderful weather we are having.  It would go over everything and keep away the morning chill in a very pretty way.

I also love the coat below, it has a hood which I love and it definitley has a Isabel Marant feel about it. I am thinking this would be perfect for my Canadian adventure in October.

The perfect pair of jeans is always a challenge and I think I have found my next pair.

The colour of this Isabel Marant top is just gorgeous and I do like to add a piece to two every season.

I cant have a wish list without a Isabel Marant dress it just wouldn’t be right.

There are not so many shoes around at the moment that I love , or do I just have too many pairs already!

I tried these KG velvet pumps on in store (House of Fraser) and I love them. They feel very comfortable and look gorgeous, just perfect for personal shopping.  Unfortunatley they don’t appear to be on any websites yet.

KG Kurt Geiger velvet pumps £119

No matter what anyone says  I really want a pair of furry slides and I have found the perfect pair. They are super comfortable and will take me well into autumn (perfect for flying) I have already tried them and the size 3 was so big the 2 fit me (help)

My new obsession for the week Biker style ankle boots

After falling for Zara’s  ankle boots earlier in the week I am now on the search for more pairs to compare. (difficult as they are gorgeous)

Today I have spotted pairs by Isabel Marant, Valentino,and Kurt Geiger, obviously a mix of price points but all gorgeous.

Outfit of the day a pretty dress and biker boots…..

This a perfect outfit for work (personal shopping) it is super cute with the advantage of very comfortable feet!! Bonus!. Just add tanned bare legs.

I do believe that I could add a midi dress as well, that would work well when the days are colder (I don’t like tights) .

A bit of an obsession faux fur embellished slides…..

It all started with the Miu Miu faux fur slides they are just so pretty, never to wear in real life just at home. (especially the rain) I know that isn’t very practical when you pay so much for them so I have found two great high street alternatives and I think you will agree they are just a s pretty.

Now I can’t decide whether or not I like the green faux fur better than the neat black jewelled flats by Other Stories (I need help or both!)

Other Stories Gemstone Faux Fur Slippers £69 here

Outfit of the day a bardot dress with silver ankle boots…

I adore navy blue and bardot dresses so this Zara dress is pretty perfect. It is something I can wear for work (personal shopping) with bare legs (tanned) and a cool pair oaf ankle boots or over jeans with pumps.

These Isabel Marant  boots are on my winter wish list and they will work so well now with bare legs and all through the winter.

Here is why I love Zara pretty gold ankle strap shoes…..

What is not to love about these shoes, they are gold, they have sparkly straps, they have  pearl buttons and they are very very pretty.

I would wear them with cropped flared jeans or bare legs with dresses.

Zara Gold Courts with Ankle Straps £49.99 here

 

Outfit of the day with Zara a tweed jacket and a cap

I love everything about this outfit even though at 5’2″ I doubt the boots would work but the idea is cool.

It has the overall look of cross between Chanel and Vivian in Pretty Women, I like that!

The pair in the image aren’t available yet but this red pair is a great alternative.
