A few years ago, heck, even a year ago I would have never worn trainers other than in the gym... These days I look for any excuse to wear them, but it doesn't have to be comfort over style anymore.

As a predominently monochrome dresser, I've been wearing this bomber jacket a hell of a lot since I bought it to take to London with me last month. I know it's quite a muted colour, and New Look describe it as 'mink', but I see it as a purple/lilac shade and think it really brightens up a simple look. I actually can't believe how handy it has become, I just keep reaching for it as it can completely change a casual outfit and give it a bit of somethin'.

I've never really been into the whole sports luxe thing until now, but I feel the need to dive in with both feet now and buy lots more bombers... I have my eye on a maroon one for Autumn and there are about four floral ones I need in my wardrobe!
I think they would all style up these ripped jeans (which I have been wearing more often than not recently) and my black and white trainers which just go with everything, therefore giving me the perfect excuse to rock trainers on a daily basis. They're on the right side of casual, not too sporty or plain, just ideal for getting plenty of wear from and best of all they're in the sale now for £10!! Bargain of the year or what?!!

Now that the sun has been making a few appearances in the North East I'm finally getting to wear my Quay-esque sunglasses too - I bloody love these, the blue/green lenses against the thick black frames is a great contrast and it's a bonus that I finally feel I've found a frame shape that suits my face.
I'm hoping to get lots more wear out of these over the coming months, I'm sure they'll be popping back up on here again before long.

So there you have it, my current uniform... Super casual, super comfy!
In other news, who else is having Love Island withdrawals?! I felt lost without it last night... Seriously missing having Alex on my TV, although I am glad Nathan and Cara won, they're so cute.
