Dress - Topshop // Biker jacket - c/o Next // Boots - Topshop 

I think I've finally found the perfect biker jacket, the kind that makes you want to curl up in it and weep with happiness. For most of my adult life I've yearned for an Acne shearling coat, but I think my purse would implode before it even let me consider buying one. Then, just in time for summer ending, this beauty pops up on the Next website and presents itself as the perfect Acne substitute. I do own a lot of coats (heh) but I've never managed to find a shearling biker I love that's also in my price range, so I'm so happy to finally add one to my wardrobe. It's also fully fur-lined so I'm secretly a little bit excited for Winter's arrival now... a statement I'm sure I'll regret as soon as the sun disappears.

I also picked up this checked smock dress in Topshop this week with a voucher my Auntie got me for my graduation, and have been chucking it on at every opportunity. If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know that I've got a long-standing love affair with dresses that have pockets ad THIS ONE JUST SO HAPPENS TO HAVE POCKETS. Oh simple pleasures.
