Ripped Knees

Khaki Parka Coat - New Look
Sports Lux Leather Patch Jacket -*
White Shirt - H&M
Ripped Knee Jeans - DIY
Boots - Chockers Shoes
Sunglasses - H&M

Lately I've been inspired by simple street styles and I can't seem to get out of my black skinnies. These are a pair I ripped at the knee for that worn out grunge look and I have a quick and super easy DIY tutorial scheduled for Friday to show you how I did it. I pulled this leather patch jacket from MeeMee over a white shirt and I love how comfy it is. It's quite a thin stretchy material so works just as well as a jumper in colder weather and a thin jacket in the summer. The shape and leather shoulders are definitely my style, and MeeMee have so many beautiful clothes in stock at the moment, I especially love their vintage section for unusual pieces. 

You may have seen my Vine video showing my new 'inspiration' board which I'm so glad I finally have up on the wall. I'm considering doing a blog post about it but basically it's a place for me to cut and pin all of my current fashion obsessions and it's been great to look over when I'm struggling to put an outfit together. It's like old school Pinterest!

Anyone getting excited about Manchester Fashion Week (4 weeks to go) I have some big news... the show schedule for the first 4 days is now up on their website and you can start buying tickets too for each individual show. I'd get yours quick before they sell out!
