Biker Grove.

Hello lovelies! When it comes to winter, I can't make do with one coat. I need a huge variety of gilets, macs, jackets, blazers and coats to cater for every outfit and occasion. It was for this reason that when I spied this beautiful number in H&M my reaction was not 'no thanks, I already have four coats and I bought another jacket last month' but rather 'oh my god that's so pretty I need it now!' Plus I'd been looking for another biker type jacket since I somehow lost my old one(!)

And so I bought it. Cost per wear wise though it has been fantastic, I only bought it at the start of the month for just over £30 and I've already worn it a ton of times so I'm happy. I know I said that I was avoiding the khaki jackets with the leather look sleeves because so many people had them but I think this is a slightly less worn version of the trend and therefore perfectly okay. Right? Plus it IS beautiful.

Jacket: H&M (available in-store)
Peplum Dress: H&M

My only quibble with this jacket is that the popper on the right shoulder continuously comes undone when I have a bag resting on it, which can be a bit of a pain when I don't notice straight away and it just flaps about as I walk for a bit. Otherwise though, it is perfect. I'm going to wear it repeatedly until it gets too cold (unless I'm wearing leather on my bottom half, I can't quite pull off full biker chic.)

  9. Oooh you look gorgeous Lauren!
    I've got a pleather jacket with popper things like that on the shoulder and wondered why they kept undoing on one side. Mystery solved!
