Outfits // The Sleeveless Jacket

Okay I suck at taking outfit posts. I feel so sad as I would love to take outfit posts but I have no-one to take them for me. I think I need some more pals. It's a shame to waste a good outfit.

Anyway, this is what I wore yesterday. I bought this jacket last week and I was a bit unsure about it to begin with. I liked it but I have essentially spent £35 on a coat with no sleeves that I can't really wear during the winter but I'm now okay with that. I really, really love it and have not stopped wearing it since. It's really warm considering it doesn't have any sleeves but I still wear long sleeved jumpers and tops to try and stay warm this autumn.

I bought this crop top either last winter or the winter before and I have never worn it before. I really liked it when I bought it, but I just couldn't find the right skirt or jeans to wear with it. I know it is cropped but I am very wary of having my tummy on show. I had appendicitis a few years ago and I now have three rather disgusting scars on my stomach which I try my hardest to hide as much as possible! I found that these jeans were okay to wear with it as they are quite high waisted so do tend to hide it as much as possible.

Let's talk about the jeans! I bought these jeans off of the American Forever 21 website, alongside a couple of other things, and got them sent to my mum's friends' house in Washington for her to pick up for me when she visited last week. It is always risky buying jeans online, even more so when you have to try and figure out the US sizing system. I have a pair of jeans I bought from Forever 21 earlier on in the year and they are a size 27 so I decided to be brave and go for a 26 and luckily they fit perfectly in the waist, although I think they are too baggy in the leg. 

When I bought the jeans (which was about a month ago) I was really into the whole ripped jeans thing but as we go into the colder months, I will probably revert back to the standard black skinny jean that are still intact. Also, it will be nice to not have to listen to people ask me if I can't afford jeans without rips in.
