Paisley Print Trophy Biker Jacket – Per Una at Marks and Spencer, plain white tee – H&M, indigo skinny jeans – Boden, silver jewelled ballet flats – Next, watch – Michael Kors, silver necklace – birthday present from my brother 

I first spotted this jacket in Marks and Spencer in York a few weeks ago. I had four children in tow who were all  s t a r v i n g  and we were heading up the escalators to the cafe so there was no time to stop to have a proper look but it being Saturday lunch time, the cafe was of course packed to the brim. What was I thinking. So anyway we came back down the escalators as fast as we went up them and now my poor children were even more  s t a r v i n g  so I definitely didn’t have time to stop. But as I craned my neck as we whizzed by, I realised that it was in the Per Una section which completely threw me. I swear if you squinted a bit it could pass as Isabel Marant or had I completely lost the plot? I looked at it online later when I got home and actually by this point, I didn’t care if it was more mad aunt than Isabel Marant I loved it! So when we were out shopping for my son’s birthday last week, I hunted it down to try it on and there it was, this lovely little jacket hidden away in a sea of bonkers Per Una frills. It had to be mine.

I’ve worn it today with my Boden skinny jeans and just a plain white tee from H&M. The jacket is quilted but really lightweight so doesn’t feel bulky at all in fact, it’s a really nice fit. I think the biker style makes it more relaxed. I love love LOVE the print which I guess is a bit mad on paper with the grey and white background, tribal embroidery and bright paisley floral patterns. Oh man I am totally dressed like a mad aunt, aren’t I? Don’t answer that by the way!

    Love the jacket. It’s really nice and even with the paisley it doesn’t look “old” one bit. Nice combo.

  6. You always look so lovely and well dressed! I wish I could dress myself like you do x
