The weather has certainly got a lot chillier in the UK recently but I managed to get away with my leather jacket last week. I think now though, it’ll be hidden away in my wardrobe for the foreseeable future since the cold has cranked up a notch or ten!

I am in love with this faux leather jacket, it looks so similar to the Acne ones. I’ve got a bit of a thing for Acne dupes…the leather dungarees (shown here) and shearling jacket (post here) and now this leather jacket. I do have quite a few leather jackets already but I really could not pass on this one! Unfortunately I think it’s now sold out online but you might still be able to snap one up instore.

Another thing I’ve been quite obsessed with recently is this tartan backpack. Why did I not invest in a backpack sooner?! They are so incredibly comfy to wear and it’s big enough to fit everything I need without looking bulky, what’s more it matches my trousers perfectly 🙂

What do you think of this outfit? Do you have any backpacks? I’m looking for a nice black leather one if you have any recommendations 🙂

P.s. sorry for the lack of fashion posts lately but I’m going to plan my posts better so that I do a good mix of beauty/fashion/life with set days of when I post on my blog and when I upload videos so thanks for bearing with me!

      Definitely, it’s far too chilly although I do love wearing a leather jacket it looks great with pretty much everything! Oooh I’ll definitely have a look in Zara, it’s one of my favourite shops! 🙂 xx

    You look amazing Chantelle, i love the trousers so much. I also am such a fan of the shirt and jumper look, it always looks so chic. It is so well styled but looks effortless..am I even making sense?! Haha.
