My Easy OOTD - Red Leather Jacket & Houndstooth
It's been a while since I did an outfit post up on my blog and I feel it's about time that changed! I've been focusing so much on my youtube recently, and really enjoying the process. You guys can see so much new in fashion and items I'm loving over there, but I don't want to neglect my blog at all! I love sharing what Im wearing, loving, buying and thinking in this little space on the internet. So I thought I'd kick my blog back off (I mean its only been like a 2 week break!) with a simple OOTD (outfit of the day) post.
So as the weather has taken a sudden turn for the COLD, this an outfit I wore the other day when I was just shopping and spending a lot of time in doors. Max time spent outside was to and from a car and the building. So bare in mind I was a little chilly in this for November. Throughout the winter I find myself grabbing leggings and OTK boots because I think its such an easy look and so flattering on your legs. So I always want something thats going to add some interest to what I call my base layer.
I did a little Lasula Haul over on my youtube channel, which you can watch here, so Lasula is a brand that I saw a lot on instagram and I had no idea if the pieces would be any good - so I picked up like 7 items and i was so impressed by the quality, the styles and the fit! Its a really affordable place to shop. So I would totally recommend picking some bits up from their website. The jumpers are amazing, I have around 5 wooly knits!!
My top is from Lasula and its this gorgeous peplum style houndstooth bandeau top (woah what a mouthful) - I mean I don't know if thats the technical name for it but oh my gosh I love it. I find is SO flattering, the sleeves are fab and super elasticated so they actually stay in that position on your arm (Which is rare for one of these kinds of tops)! I got this top specifically to wear with my leggings and OTK combo because the peplum style means your legs are elongated as the waist starts slightly higher, giving the illusion that your legs are sky high! Winner I say.

Over the top of that I wore another Lasula item which is this amazing red faux leather biker jacket. Ive always wanted a statement colour leather jacket but its one of those things that can be a 'trend' or something you're not sure you'll like in a months time. Thats why I would totally recommend buying something thats potentially 'a trend' or 'in fashion' right now from somewhere more affordable. That way you havent broken the bank and you can afford to keep moving with the trends. Red is hot in the fashion world right now so I was keen to get some red leather into my wardrobe. I think it really brought an extra pop to the outfit and takes a dark outfit to something fun and bright. Perfect for brightening the winter months.
I simply paired this with my Sophie Hulme bag in this gorgeous light grey which I think ties in nicely with the colours from the top. Overall Im loving this simple OOTD.
