I think we can all agree that you need this dreamy ass coat in your life because it's made mine a whole lot better. It's no shock that I'd go for the most eccentric patterned piece of clothing on the Blue Vanilla website because we all know my love for anything slightly mad and this jacket - kimono type thing definitely tops my fruit cake. I freaking love it! Paisley is one of my all time favorite patterns and the colour pallet that goes with this one is beautiful, very autumnal too might I say. I know, the dreaded winter vocab will be spilling out of all of our mouths sooner rather than later but you know, this jacket is perfect for that season.
Top - Forever 21, shorts - M&S, kimono - Blue Vanilla, boots - Newlook (similar) belt - Primark (similar)
It's so whimsical and retro but what I really love about this jacket/kimono contraption - let's just call it a kimono - is that it's so versatile, I can wear it so many ways. I can loose the belt and have it as a slouchy overcoat or if I was feeling extra fancy I could cinch it in even more and wear it as a coat dress which is very on trend right now. I think it would look unreal in the evening with a pair of black heels and a smart clutch along with a tight pony tail and golden accessories.
I especially want to wear it to a Fleetwood Mac concert where I can join in with Lindsey Buckingham and the gang and float about in the crowd while my ears fill with the joyous sounds of their voices - dreamy!
