Hello, and a huge warm welcome to my blog! My name’s Charlotte Jayne Jackson and I’m currently based in Shropshire, England. The main focus of my blog is fashion, food and adventures so if that sounds great to you stick around, take a look, and enjoy! ~ x
What do you guys think of my new jacket? It’s faux leather!
Got this lovely jacket from ASOS Design and I’m crazy about it ~ It ties at the waist and even has slight shoulder padding!
I’ve been LOVING the 90’s grunge style recently just because of how genuinely ‘cool’ I think it makes people look…
I made sure to get faux leather as I have a plant based lifestyle and therefore always try to avoid buying animal products if I can help it (sometimes that’s hard but I try!).
I should say that this jacket is very oversized when it’s not tied but the belt pulls in the waist so nicely that it doesn’t matter that much – as I usually prefer more fitted clothing ~
Can’t wait to wear this out in the spring when Lockdown ends in the UK. It will honestly go with SO much.
I’ve already had a few people on Instagram message me about it, so as always I will link it down below xox
*Also I’m sorry that a lot of my photos are inside my house atm, but I’m not allowed to go outside to take photos because of the national lockdown restrictions where I live. I’m hoping that will change soon so I can give you better photos in more professional and interesting backdrops!*
For Christmas this year I decided to invest in a proper winter coat. I owned many coats and jackets but I did not own one that was suitable for really cold weather… which is problematic when you live in a place with cold, damp winters.
I ended up choosing this beautiful white puffer coat from Zara. A size small (S) fits me great and it’s ever so warm :).
It’s fleece lined making it soft and cozy, but most importantly, it’s NOT made with down.
So many winter puffers are made with duck feathers and I wanted to find something gorgeous and suitable for the bitter cold that was also cruelty free!
I was definitely successful. This coat is suitable in temperatures -5C to -20C so perfect for winter breaks away (skiing!) or cold bonfire nights.
The pockets are lined and there are even straps in the back to stop the coat from falling off you as it’s quite heavy.
I love styling it with a turtle neck, some jeans, ankle boots/ snow boots, and a little black cross body bag.
Thanks for reading and thank you to all the people who have followed my blog recently ❤
Good morning everyone, I hope you are having a great week and keeping healthy if you are in Lockdown!
I want to write a post about this White cardigan I recently purchased from Missguided (as I pretty much live in it haha!).
I think like a lot of people during COVID I’ve bought ALOT of lounge wear, wayyy more than I usually would, this year because we can’t go anywhere but our living rooms…
This cardigan is perfect for lounging around the house. It’s oversized, ties at the waist, is soft and wearable. I LOVEEE it!
I like to style it with black leggings or cycle shorts with fluffy slippers and a t-shirt <3. The sleeves are extra large also, giving you that feeling like your are slightly wrapped in a blanket haha.
One of my favourite (and I mean FAVOURITE) pieces to wear this winter has been this white turtleneck/ roll neck jumper from Topshop.
It’s very soft, knitted and definitely keeps me warm in the cold winter tucked into a pair of dark jeans/leggings and layered with a coat 🙂
I wear a UK size small (S) and LOVE to style it with the little black bag you can see above ^. A small on me is quite loose but not oversized so I would size up for less fitted look. The fit around the shoulders is baggy, but more tapered in the arm, making it fit great in a coat!!
(I got this jumper while Topshop was still independent, so now to buy it you have to got through ASOS.)
