I have made a decision for the next year to totally reduce my spending.  I’ve come to realise I waste a lot of money, and barely save any, so I’m making a conscious effort to stop spending and start saving.  I’ve said this many times and gone back on it – but I don’t think I really ever meant it, otherwise, well, I would have done it.  I have bought a lot of stuff over the last year, and I’ve noticed that I repeat things.  I mean, why wouldn’t I, my style is my style; I like what I like.  However, I don’t need to!

BASKETBALL

So I have this jacket, I found it while vintage shopping with my aunt; and I believe it is the single most complemented thing I own, or have ever owned!  It’s a Spalding NBA bomber jacket, the idea is that the jacket looks like the Spalding basketball; and it really does, the leather has been perfectly textured.  Dressed up and dressed down, it is everything!!!

GREY MATTER

Gotta start kicking layering up a notch as the cold has started to set in!

Layering matters!  One – because it looks good, and two – because it’s Autumn and the chill is well and truly kicking in!  I decided to do the whole tee under a slip dress thing, and throw a thick cardigan over the top; the denim jacket was added to break up the greyness, the extra layer didn’t hurt either.

As short as this outfit is, I was surprisingly warm!  Layering is definitely key, regardless of length.
