A cropped jacket in summer

How in love with one jacket can someone actually be? I eyed this jacket up in & Other Stories last month and then it sold out before I had chance to buy it. Lucky for me, and you, it came back! Lizzy has this jacket too and it is just so flipping good. The cut of it means it goes with pretty much anything, from high waisted denim skirts to shirt dresses.

I shot this on my film camera last week on one of the hotter days in London, I say hot, I mean sweltering. It’s not a day for public transport in twenty eight degree heat, let me tell you. I had one of those days where I had a to-do list longer than hours in the day; at 10pm I was still working and still had to choose outfits and pack a suitcase for a trip.  Not to mention a surprise baby shower (not mine), a meeting, lunch with friends, and two store appointments. All absolutely lovely things, sure, but I’d once again over stretched myself, so by the time I got home to James he was ready to hand me a wine. A bottle of.

I kept this look simple but summer-y. You can’t avoid a denim skirt in the summer, they’re just too easy to wear and absolutely do go with every top you’ve got in that summer wardrobe of yours.  My shoes are from Dune, and I love the pastel lilac and mid block heel. I also managed to walk for at least an hour in these at one point and lived to tell the tale so, if that’s not a serious shoe road test, I don’t know what is.
