Good evening to you all, I’m a little excited to finally get this post out today. Something I’ve wanted to do on my blog for a long time, especially as a main feature are my OOTD posts.
For those readers who are new to this abbreviation, OOTD = “Outfit of the day”.
My style of OOTD posts will naturally change a little as I get myself started on this new chapter for my blog. Bare with me as I adjust into this new movement.
So I spoke of a little while ago about a location shoot I found. It fits perfectly for my blog too, a little bit of grey, a little bit of acid green, something concrete and minimal.
Since I am back home in the Hampshire countryside for a little while, I had a hard time finding somewhere (legal) to start shooting. Somewhere that gives a minimal, monochrome vibe. Also the illusion that I’m not back in ‘every tree here Hampshire’. As I’ve probably said before, the city is where I feel 100% myself. So I wanted to find a location that I felt personally connected too.
I have teamed up with my mum who takes the photos (she has the nice camera) and below is my first outfit I’m featuring.
Well I have rambled on long enough, so please scroll down to see the look.
(My second OOTD post will start more promptly too, this post is the exception. So imagine from down onwards here as the beginning of it. It wont have as much text above like this first one has.)
– Concrete –
I wanted to start of with something concrete. An outfit that showcases my own individual style. I’ve come across a fair amount of strong brands that I adore. One in particular was Noose & Monkey that I just felt connected too. I predominantly wanted to feature this bomber jacket for my first post.
I managed to get myself the ‘Noose & Monkey Morgan Bomber Jacket’ in their January sales. I had been keeping my eye on it for some time, checking their site regularly. When I saw that only Large & XX-Large sizes were available, I bought one there and then. I’m glad I did because the jacket is wonderful!
Not only is the jacket structurally made well, but the quality is expressively London tailored. The delicate gold pattern against the garment itself is really nice. The soft black velvet of the jackets outerwear is complimented with a little gold spakle detail. The fully closable zip allows it to be worn closed or open. And the inside is lined as a tailored suit would be, with the brands unique skull decal print.
Feel free to leave a comment below with any questions about this outfit.
