FAIIINT Wishlist Mint Velvet cropped jacket, Vero Moda drape tee, Label Lab wrap cardigan, ARK PU patent skater skirt, Charkviani ‘Marilyn’ Boots, Hawick Cashmere Beanie

Since buying myself that French Connection skirt I was craving a few months ago I’ve become a little obsessed with skater skirts. You’ll be seeing more of that particular skirt soon, as I can’t stop wearing it! They’re not something I’d usually find myself searching for, but to be honest I’ve been kind of enjoying the hint of girliness it adds to my outfits, it’s a nice little change and so I’ve been trying to hunt down a few others too. I really love this super glossy patent version from ARK, it’s almost veering into tacky territory, but I kind of like that & you know I love to play with lots of different textures. Paired with the right items I think the slick plastic would add a wonderful extra dimension to an all black outfit.

Another thing I’ve been searching for is another great cropped jacket, I wear my Todd Lynn x Topshop one to death (as I’m sure you’re aware!) & I’d probably say it’s my most favourite jacket. The cropped length & fitted shape just works so well with everything I own, and really seems to suit my shape too. I stumbled across this one from Mint Velvet on one of my late night browses, it’s an absolute steal & I could have kicked myself when I saw my size was totally out of stock! Obviously it was not meant to be, so I guess I’ll just have to continue looking and at least I still have something to do in the early hours when my insomnia strikes! Though, if any of you do happen to come across a perfect little cropped jacket, I’d really appreciate a heads up!

    Love that cropped jacket, I’m obsessed with them which is ridiculous as what I really need are big fluffy coats

    sass and bide does crop jackets really well in general, strong shoulders, i think you’ll like them! and i feel the same about skater skirts, they’re so much fun to wear :) those shoes are pretty amazing – i’ve never heard of this brand before but i’m definitely checking it out now.

    Wow, that coat…so amazing.

    yess I think you would look amazing with the girly touch of a flared skirt! I know what you mean about the tackiness of the patent material, but on you anything would look classy and stylish :)

    Oh gosh Steph, that cropped jacket is so you! I’ll definitely keep my eyes peeled for a similar one. <3

    I’ve seen a lot of cropped stuff on Shopbop though I think it’s mostly the denim kind. Could have spotted one or two leather ones but the price tag is obviously up there too lol. I’m kinda loving that PVC like skirt, the shine I think would look amazing on you because I just know you’d style it to perfection. It can definitely get put in the tacky bin, I’m just envisioning some tweens styling it with a tight neon crop and those super junky Jeffrey Campbell booties from two seasons ago. *shudders*

    I think that the cropped jacket is my favorite item and I believe it would really, really look good on you! Haha, you should totally go for it!
    Other item I like, are those super cool heels! I love how edgy they are & I would love to incorporate them in my closet, because they could spice up any outfit!

    Good options! I used to wear that shape of skirt a lot. It’s quite flattering especially with tights.

    First of all the one thing that I noticed is those boots! They are incredible just love the print and design they would look great for Spring/Summer and Autumn! And the French Connection skirt really is pretty but tough at the same time and as you said it’s not really you but it’s great your trying something different as lace can add a touch of femininity but it can also look very grungy/futuristic if styled with other pieces. I love lace and always try and mix it in with tougher pieces as it adds interest to an outfit and looks amazing! Can’t wait to see how you styled it ;)

    That wrap cardigan is pretty perfect, you always find the most gorgeous pieces in the places I wouldn’t even think to look. I’m not very good at shopping online, I have to know what I’m looking for because I get quickly bored of browsing (unless it’s on Ebay browsing a certain brand, I love a bargain!). I’m looking forward to seeing how you style your skater skirt, I have one I bought a while ago from Warehouse but I just don’t know what to wear with it! Good luck in your hunt for the new perfect cropped jacket :) xxx
