Little heroes

#teenvogue // ASOS dress, TOPSHOP jacket, KURT GEIGER shoes, CHANEL bag

I remember when I was younger, my mother tried to coax me into wearing my older brothers old denim jackets. Being the badass, incredibly opinionated 5 year old I was, I weren't havin' none of it. In fact, up until a few years ago, I quite disliked denim jackets (possibly because I associated them with my fathers childhood as a cowboy in Kansas...this based on the assumption that everyone in Kansas is a cowboy, even my 87 year old Grandma). Finally I gave in and we bought a more fitted one from Only one summer in Danmark. I wore it a few times before I not only realised I wanted a baggy one (like my brothers old ones, damn) but my mum twigged she quite liked the one I had bought and proceeded to subtly integrate it into her own wardrobe. (I didn't complain since I've stolen countless objects from her wardrobe, fair is fair in mother-daughter wardrobe wars).
Anyway, back to the present day, I spotted this one in Topshop and it ticked all my boxes. I usually prefer Topshop's winter collections as they tend to be a little less IBIZA BEACH FUN YEAH RAVE NEON IN YOUR FACE LACEY SKIN but I'm quite liking their current vibe.

  9. I love baggy denim!! I still have my old vintage denim jacket from junior high that was clearly five sizes to big at the time b/c it's still two size baggy almost ten years later!

    1. Maybe try East London or South West? Areas like Richmond, Dalston, Shoreditch or Clapham, Wimbledon! It's very personal though, but those are just my suggestions! x

  27. Aw it's too bad none of your brother's old denim jackets are left over. I found a boxy one from my dad... but it's HUGE. Anyways, I like how you made it more lady like with the heels and dress and bag :)

  35. I feel I have the same love/hate relationship although it doesn't remind me of cowboy's as such but the kind of Ibiza clothes wearing kids you described above, ha! Also the Kurt Geigers look epic on.
