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
//Good afternoon guys, has everyone been keeping up with the Olympics?? I’ve been loving the gymnastics today ~
Speaking of very figure hugging outfits, something that I’ve been loving wearing at the moment is black bicycle shorts! I was always that person for years who started off hating it as a fashion trend, then eventually loving it on other people but never thought I’d wear it myself…BUT that day (or rather year) has come ~
This summer I have been living in my black pair of bicycle shorts! They go with so much but I particularly like wearing them with my oversized white shirt 🙂 (see above).
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 ❤
