It was cold, I didn’t have enough outerwear and I became the cliché of a woman having to take her boyfriend’s jacket because my teeth were chattering. But I really was cold, okay? It wasn’t a move.
The only move I made afterwards was to hijack his jacket and style it three ways. Why? Because as someone once said to me, “It is of the because.” A good reason as any, if I do say so myself. So here are three looks styled using my boyfriend’s jacket with links to whatever items I could find in the captions.
No, he didn’t know I was going to do this when he handed the jacket to me. Surprise!
With Look #1, I was inspired by the show ‘Derry Girls’ and their uniforms; although of course I’ve kinda fancied it up a bit. I don’t have any checkered skirts anymore so the frilly one will have to do.
I was kinda going for a ‘Gossip Girl’ look with Look #2. Preppy but high school, if you catch my drift. The headband especially makes me feel that one step closer to Blair Waldorf.
Helen Anderson is one of my favourite British bloggers/YouTubers and she has this very rock & roll aesthetic that inspired Look #3. She’s a total badass and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to exactly replicate her, so I’ll have to settle for being a half-badass.
Well, this has been quite a different styling challenge for me but I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for reading!
