Red flat

I should be wearing the jacket that matches this skirt by now. I ordered it on December 27th, for delivery within 2-4 weeks. That was 4 weeks ago yesterday. I phoned Next to find out where it was and they said it was on a further 1-2 week delay. Well how about an email to let me know that Next? Or better still, how about a section on your website where I can view my outstanding orders to find out whether they’ve been delayed? I shouldn’t have to phone you to find out where my things are.

Anyway, I was in mind to wear a biker jacket today so thought I’d try out the one I usually wear as a coat and use it as jacket instead. I was watching some of Jess Cartner-Morley’s videos on the Guardian website yesterday and she suggested wearing a biker style jacket with stripes. I added the polo neck for warmth, the skirt because I love it, and the red boots for colour.

Black polo neck – New Look Tall
Striped top – Dorothy Perkins Tall
Grey moto jacket – Dorothy Perkins
Grey skirt – Next Tall
Black tights – Primark
Red boots – Shoe Express (eBay)
Red beads – eBay
Silver earrings – gifted

Total Est. Cost £64
