Leather Jackets: French Connection Shift Dress, Ankle Boots, Balenciaga Work | Grey Tank, Jeans, Studded Flats, Mulberry Alexa

Here's what I wore to work on Thursday:

DressFrench Connection 'Kay' houndstooth shift dress

BagBalenciaga classic work in 2006 Rouille

Pretty much wearing the exact same outfit as the last time I wore this dress, only with a leather jacket this time. It just works so well with boots and a Balenciaga, haha. A nice easy outfit so you can see why I've repeated it. The photos don't show the detail the best, so as requested on my last post, I took a close up of the print on the jacket on instagram.

Last worn: printed leather jacket, French Connection dress, Asos ankle boots, Balenciaga rouille work.

Here's what I wore to work for casual Friday today:
mulberry alexa foggy grey wittner santa fe cobalt blue leather jacket jeans edenborough eveans cuff

wittner cobalt blue leather jacket skinny jeans studded mbmj mouse flats mulberry alexa bag

Jacket: Wittner Santa Fe cobalt blue leather jacket (New purchase)
Top: Cotton On 'eternity' tank in charcoal marle
Jeans: Sass and Bide strayed misfits skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bracelets: the usual plus Lovisa 'Collette by Collette Dinnigan' twisted bow charm and heart charm silver bracelets and Edenborough Evans 'Ivy' silver cuff
BagMulberry regular size Alexa bag in foggy grey

Only found out that Wittner made leather jackets when this beautiful blue was one posted on their instagram a while ago. I kept thinking about it and eventually ordered it, along with the leather jacket from Asos above. I usually have a difficult time finding nice leather jackets so I thought if I get two, I might get lucky with one of them and could return the one that didn't work. Of course I kept them both. The colour and leather on this jacket are amazing. Bags are my go-to splurge items, but I made an exception in this case. I'm so pleased with it! :)

Unfortunately, today we had a really important meeting this afternoon, I had forgotten about. Since we were asked to dress more formally than the usual casual Friday wear, my friend and I popped out at lunchtime to shop so I could get a jumper to cover up my bare shoulders with! :)

Last worn: grey marle tank, Sass and Bide jeans, studded shoes, Mulberry Alexa. It's the first time I've worn the jacket as it's a new purchase.

  8. Houndstooth is one of my favourite all time prints so I love the dress. I have always wondered about the leather jackets they sell in Wittner. I didn't know they came in such a fabulous colour either.

    1. I didn't even know Wittner sold leather jackets until I saw this one posted on their instagram, haha! Took me a while to take the plunge and buy it, as it is a bit exy!

  9. love the two jackets - remember you instagramming these - yeah it's so hard to find a good one and i'm glad you've managed to :) the colour of the wittner one is gorgeous, really beautiful blue, had no idea they did jackets either so i'll have to pop into their stores when i'm in the city next :)
