This is what I wore to see my boyfriend and walk his dog with him, little bit overdressed perhaps? I love the mix of denim, leather and leopard and this is also quite a 'classic' look for me, a lot of what I am wearing here I would consider as wardrobe must-haves, but I will save these thoughts as I am going to do a post on it soon. I got the Superga's (the shoes) after a long and seemingly never ending debate with myself over whether to get new converse or branch out and go for the more under the radar Superga's. I feel that converse have become, if it's possible, almost 'too popular' now, EVERYONE seems to have them, which - although I'm sure I will have a never ending love for them (having had mine since I was about 11) - it kind of takes the 'shine'? away, if you know what I mean. They just don't feel as cool/special anymore (they felt like this when I was 11, sad I know). I will still wear my good old converse though and will probably get some new ones anyway because at the moment I have white hi-tops, which don't get me wrong, I love, but my feet are slightly out-of-proportionately-large in comparison to the rest of me (clown feet) and I don't think Converse hi tops help with this. So I will get the other ones (low tops?) which I also think are more versatile. I will probably always go for white because I think it goes with everything.

On a more serious note, I think I should get a more casual jacket such as a green military jacket. I am aware this just does not look dog walking appropriate which leads me to wonder what I own which is dog walking appropriate... NOT A LOT. Then again, not owning a dog myself and having only walked my boyfriends dog, well accompanied him while he walked his dog, once in over two years of being together I don't know if it's necessary for me to own a dog-walking-appropriate jacket. Also I was going to buy this one from Urban Outfitters the other month due to the fact I was thinking about getting one anyway and it was in the sale for £20 but I hesitated, disaster struck and it got put back up to it's normal price of £75. FML. So I don't know if it is the right thing to do but I am now refusing to purchase one unless it is as good and as cheap as said jacket.

So I am back to square one with wanting to get out of my leather jacket rut but not knowing which direction to go. I do love leather, I just need variety!
