So get your leather, leather, leather, on, on, on, on

So ever since seeing this picture of Rosie off of Made In Chelsea looking amazing in a leather sleeveless jacket (refuse to use the word 'gilet' and become my own worse country casuals nighmare), I've been scouring the high street for my own version. And who would believe that it would be Primark who came up trumps!! Even my local Topshop didn't have a version for under £50.

Leather jacket - Primark
Maroon Skinny Trousers - New Look
Black Chelsea Boots - H&M
Floral Jumper - Vintage (Sheffield)
Watch Pendant - Vintage (Nottingham)

[Apologies for the crappy photo quality - in a rush!]
It's a little synthetic (to be expected from Primark, never going to get a proper leather one am I) but exactly the style I was looking for and I'm really pleased I found it for such a bargain. Now I can prance around and pretend I'm in MIC for real, darling. xox

  6. Love it! I call those vests, haha. Must be an Australian thing? I wish I could wear vests but they make me look really manly. You rock it, though!

  9. MIC love! Ahhh, Rosie annoys me more than I can word, even if her style is impeccable. Primark comes out with some amazing things sometimes, I've my eye on a black dress with floral details actually... Must stop spending money! xxx
