Grunge | Tartan on tartan

Outfit post - Tartan

Afternoon chickens! I've spent the weekend playing the hostess with the mostess with some of my family. We drank a lot of beer, didn't get much sleep, and went to a dog show yesterday which nearly broke me. Far too much cuteness to handle, including cuddles with an 8 week old Alsation ball of fluff!

When my flat finally emptied about lunchtime, I have since been properly vegging out. Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging on the box (and what?) and I'm already trying to decide what to wear to the #AXParty on Thursday. Who's going?!

Leather leggings - H&M
Creepers - c/o TUK
Tartan shirt - vintage via COW
Tartan bomber jacket - c/o Persunmall
Bobble hat - George

When this tartan bomber jacket from Persunmall arrived, I was kinda stuck how to style it. Don't get me wrong - I love it - but it didn't seem to go with anything I own. Tartan dress? Too much. Black t-shirt and jeans? Not enough. In the end, I decided to double up over a vintage shirt I got from COW and I'm pretty happy with it, looking back! The jacket is a pretty snug fit, so if you want the true american bomber feel I'd recommend to go a size up, but it's lightweight, perfect for Autumn.

I think tartan is my favourite of the latest trends. I might have bought a deliciously pink jacket after seeing Emma looking INCREDIBLE in this one, but the only trend I've really bought into so far this year is leopard print, thanks to a sneaky style challenge with Vouchercodes. This week, I'm also featured with a whole host of other bloglings I'm sure you'll recognise - have a look!
