River Island Biker Jacket and Jeans

Hi everyone! The week has been a real mix weather wise, we've had glorious sun, downpours, gales and clouds so for the moment bare legs and no jackets are still off the agenda for the moment!

I decided to wear my newish River Island biker jacket which was a half price bargain in the mid season sales, reduced to £35. Its a perfect trans-seasonal jacket as the body is Melton wool and quite lightweight too providing just the right amount of coverage and warmth for an unpredictable British Spring day:


I also chose this style for the black pleather sleeves so it could work as an evening jacket when the nights are cooler too and still look smart:



I'm wearing my Topshop skinny flares which I thrifted a couple of years ago from the Sue Ryder charity shop, a recently thrifted Zara Mans chambray pinstripe slim fit shirt (also from Sue Ryder) and my Peacocks sandals that I've had for quite a few summers now:



This outfit I've just realised is all original high street- no vintage or designer in sight!!

Wishing you all a really good weekend-I am hoping to get to a couple of boot sales, replenish supplies for my ebay selling and if the weather's good I'll definitely be in my hammock in the garden with a magazine in one hand and a nice cool drink in the other-fingers crossed!!

Love your version of double denim and that biker is great! I love bikers for spring too - you just never know when it is going to get chilly despite the sunshine!

I was out in that hail storm yesterday- my choir were walking back from the hospital where we'd been singing and we got absolutely drenched! I had no coat!
Your jacket is really stylish!x

This is nice, and we had snow flurries here today, so the vest would be so perfect for this once again cold weather (brr).
