what I wore today: 80's throwback

I have a habit of putting together the most random items; today was one of those days! 

I saw this satin bomber jacket in american apparel and just loved it; it's so fresh and simple I knew it'd be a good investment for the summer. I went for ivory but there's some other to die for colour options.

I've been tempted to wear this 80's vintage shirt for a while now but couldn't seem to find the right outfit! today I decided it was going in the mix and so was my new necklace. I've been wearing so much gold the last few years that I'm now loving silver all over again (especially the silver and turquoise combination) so I'm hoping to buy a few more little pieces over the summer. 

I'm glad I picked out this random ensemble though! I have a habit of reaching for the same items in my wardrobe without thinking; it's good to mix it up and find clothes you've forgotten about hidden away!

satin charmeuse night jacket: american apparel
red vintage shirt: kindly gifted at vintage event.
silver and turquoise western necklace: new look
red heart bag: forever 21
leigh jeans: topshop
trainers: converse

my plans for tonight consist of fajitas, a duvet & magic mike on DVD (living the saturday night dream y'all!)

happy weekend!

back soon
