The Levi's Ex -Boyfriend Jacket: Two Ways

Spring is officially here and it's finally warm enough to wear one of my favourite statement pieces: the Levi's denim jacket. Ever the versatile jacket, it looks good with any outfit. Here are two of my fave ways to wear it...

This look is perfect for a casual Saturday spent wandering around the city and looks great paired with a navy blue jumper, white jeans, ankle boots and tan bucket bag. The jacket the perfect size that you can pop a chunky knit under for chillier days too.

I'm such a fan of a floral tea dress and denim jacket, infact it's probably one of my signature outfits. But until it's warm enough to wear with a pair of plimsolls, it still looks good with tights and a pair of chunky boots. The dress in particular is from Calvin Klein and I'm super excited to carry it through to summer.

The Denim Boiler Suit

This is an item I've seen spring up on Instagram heavily over the past month, I was particularly inspired by how unbelievably cool Charlotte Jacklin and Alex Stedman looked in theirs and immediately ran to ASOS to purchase one.

I'm a sucker for the comfort and versatility that dungarees bring, and especially enjoy the toddler like aesthetic, but thought that a boiler suit was just one step too far and wouldn't suit my feminine style of tea dresses, ruffle neck blouses and floral prints.

Au contraire! Although I do dress very femininely, I always like to add a masculine, tomboyeque vibe to an outfit - whether it's a biker jacket, a pair of Dr Martens or an oversized Levi's jacket. I just had to reverse this way of dressing to find my own way of styling the boiler suit.

I wore a turtle neck underneath (classic), a pair of striped socks (which I didn't realise would be quite so visible but enjoyed how they turned out anyway), and my Adidas Stan Smiths.

I was shooting with boygirl agency which began in the Northern Flower shop in the NQ, Manchester. I loved how the pop of pink tulips brighten up the outfit and as if by magic, the most adorable little dog walked past and we immediately asked if we could borrow her for a few snaps. Her pink lead matched the flowers perfectly and I adore how the photos turned out!

I'm pretty sure I'll be wearing this a lot in the coming months, and have even considered a white denim boiler suit for summer - but I fear chocolate ice cream + white + one very clumsy lady = disaster.
