What better to do on a Sunday than take advantage of the fact that the beautiful Manchester Central Library is closed, and so is nice and quite for some photos! I absolutely love this newly refurbished area of Manchester around St Peter's Square, and would definitely recommend a visit if you're ever in the city.
My outfit here is all about this shaggy jacket / cardigan from new online retailer Blue Vanilla
. It's also available in black, but I like the grey as the lighter colour makes the interesting texture really visible. Plus, I love grey! It's a real statement piece, so even though my outfit here is literally jeans and a t-shirt, I think the jacket makes it stand out. The jacket is £30, which when compared to your standard faux fur jacket or indeed the shaggy cardigan I featured in this post
, is relatively cheap. Blue Vanilla are also offering free UK shipping at the moment too!
I matched the jacket with a Topshop ribbed, long sleeved crop top in a different shade of grey, and my new black high waist skinny jeans by Ark's own brand. I have loved my Cheap Monday Second Skin high waist jeans but have worn them to death, and I am really pleasantly surprised by this pair which I got to replace them. They're really soft and stretchy, whilst still being thick enough to feel like jeans rather than leggings, and they fit like a dream. They don't have front pockets which is a little bit annoying, but they do have back pockets so all is not lost. For £26.99, they really are an excellent pair of budget jeans! I'm also wearing pointed Public Desire boots, and a couple of gorgeous silver pendant necklaces which I've linked under the photo below.
Thoughts on this simple outfit?
