Is it possible to fall in love with a jacket?
One of my goals this year was to shop a little more carefully, meaning shop for quality over quantity. I've never been one to spend hundreds on new clothes, but where I can, I love buying special pieces that I will get a lot of wear out of. I think doing this, and buying basics, which I wear a lot of anyway, means you can't really go wrong.
It's a wonder I was able to snatch up this jacket from ASOS because I think it's now out of stock unfortunately, and went out of stock in my size just after I bought it! I've seen Liv wear this and after those diddle daddling I decided I really wanted it in my wardrobe. Summer is coming up in New Zealand and what's better than a statement denim jacket? This one is really nice quality and, I think, a lovely colour - medium blue - which perfectly slots into my wardrobe with my black jeans and plain tops.
This is a small ASOS haul of sorts, so the other item I picked up was this black satchel bag. Perfectly my style and a really decent size to store all my bits and bobs in. No, it doesn't fit my laptop in for Uni days, but Uni ends for the year in a week (eek! yay?) so I'm calling this my every day bag when I'm going to work or meeting with friends. I was in desperate need for a new bag after I've been using my tote bag which left me a little bored - you know, I need something structured in my life. Come to think of it, this would be a nice camera bag of sorts, if your gear wasn't too hefty.
So I'm currently in love with my two new purchases and no doubt another ASOS package will be making its way to my door soon, as I'm always browsing the site.
