Who says we can’t wear leather jackets as we get older. I love my navy oversize biker jacket. I bought it from MeandEm a couple of years ago to replace my AgnesB 1985 version. Incidentally, I still wear my AgnesB except now I wear it when cycling. Literally a biker jacket.
Unfortunately, this version is no longer available. MeandEm now offers a similar one in Khaki. Yes, it is expensive however when choosing a leather jacket it is worth buying the best quality you can afford. Good quality leather gets better with age if you look after it. Like us!!!!
A classic combination – leather jacket, jeans and ankle boots. I promised that I would talk more about my new jeans. They are the high waisted straight leg jeans by Levis from John Lewis & partners. I have been putting off buying a new pair of jeans for months. My NYDJ jeans have served me well but they were definitely getting past their sell-by date.
On a couple of occasions, I had put time aside time to try on jeans but with no luck. My patience runs very thin when trying on jeans and I find it an exhausting experience.
So on this occasion, I decided to make life easier and to book a personal shopping session at John Lewis & partners. It was a much more relaxing experience having a personal stylist bring me a selection of jeans whilst I stayed in my spacious and comfortable changing room.
The result “success”; I found a pair of comfortable jeans that fitted perfectly. Luckily they were not the most expensive. I am afraid that I am not in the market for paying over £200 for a pair of jeans.
Baukjen have some excellent leather jackets in a variety of colours.
