Technicolour Jacket Dreams

I'm currently experiencing a really rather lovely period of my life. You know when everything sort of seems to level out, after a period of uncertainty and feeling altogether a bit glum? Yeah, that. And you know what makes everything just that little better? A new jacket, of course. You know there is really nothing that I enjoy more than outerwear, and I think I have pretty much found the Holy Grail of outerwear, if such a thing exists.
These pictures were taken when I finally met up with the lovely Laila from the blog Tape Parade. We had such a lovely time hanging out, and of course we had to crack the DSLR's out and take some snaps. So thanks to Laila for taking these!

Jacket - Unif via Depop
Top - Internacionale
Jeans - Topshop (Joni)
Shoes - Shoe Zone

This. Jacket. Basically I've been nothing short of obsessed with a certain American brand called Unif, who create an array of colourful clothes that are clearly made for the super cool kids. Not just cool, SUPER bloody cool. And despite being the one at school who probably spent more time pretending to be a witch in my own personal games on the playground than learning to socialise (I still haven't really stopped doing this) I wanted a slice of the action.

I've been using an app called depop that you may have heard of, which is like ebay and lets you sell clothes etc. I'd been checking the Unif tag religiously, as their clothes aren't available in the UK unless you get them shipped from America. One day, the much sought after I DYE Moto jacket came online from an English seller, and I snapped it up as soon as I could, for perhaps a little more than I would usually spend on a piece of clothing, but I knew this was the one (yes, I talk about clothes as if they're the relationship I currently don't have).

This tie dye jacket is honestly the item of my dreams, I feel like I've been waiting for this jacket. It was destined, meant to be. It is now a part of a my soul, and let's just say in the event of a fire all expensive electrical items and valued flatmates would be pushed to the wayside just to save this baby. So yes, I really do quite like this jacket.

 I decided to pair this with an understated neon orange top, so as to leave my parents in absolutely no doubt that I'm on drugs (I'm joking mum, if you're reading).

Just, you know, a casual pose that we would all do.

  1. You're literally too cool for school. And I was also playing witch games by my self in the playground too. "EAT THESE LEAVES! THEY'LL TAKE YOU TO THE MAGICAL REALM" I would shriek at anyone who came near. It's not surprising that I found it hard to make friends...

    Anyway, that super special foreign jacket looks amazing on you, and you can pretty much wear it with ANYTHING because it's got ALL the colours going on. Excellent! It kind of matches your blog background a bit too. :)
