I keep being very, very naughty at the moment, and spending money when I should be squirrelling my funds away for winter. However, I think that my most recent purchases are totally justifiable, because they're great quality, crackingly versatile and make me feel really happy. Which is what retail therapy's all about, right?

The jacket is perfect - a little bit grunge, hardy enough to keep me dry in the rain, and so versatile. I've been umming and ahhing over several different options for a while, but the Topshop version finally won me over. Since I bought it, I've literally been wearing it over every outfit. It looks great with basics, such as skinny jeans and breton stripes, but thrown over a girly dress and heels, it creates a really charming juxtaposition. Also, it has the best pockets ever. To the extent that I don't actually need a bag. Without it looking bulky... The dream. So I'm really sorry, but this jacket will be appearing in every single outfit post for quite a while. Because I'm in love with it.
Seriously. I'm so chuffed with this jacket, I don't even mind that it's raining, and blowing a hooley outside. I'll probably be disappointed when the sun starts shining again, because I'll have to take it off.
I'm in London for a few days, and am hanging out with the trendy lot tonight in Brick Lane. I'm off to rummage through my bags to see if I have any hipster camouflage - anything to avoid all the cool kids turning around, staring at me, and yelling "YOU DO NOT BELONG HERE!"
Enjoy the weekend, kittens, whatever you're up to. Let me know if you have any exciting plans!
