A Typical London Day

It's getting pretty brisk in London, but I'm sure New York is a whole lot colder. I'm starting to think that every day in London will be like that, maybe just a little bit colder and a whole lot of rain. Regardless of where I am, I am always cold. So to combat the wind, I have on my heavy duty and oversized biker jacket from the Alexander Wang x H&M collection that I bought in Budapest. 
The jacket is pretty heavy, but because it's wool blend, I can stay warm and cozy. It blocks all the wind that's coming my way even if it does have one layer. I love the moto detailing on the elbow and the fact that it has black zippers. I don't have to worry about silver or gold accessories clashing with each other when I wear this jacket.

Albeit from the same collection, I paired my jacket with this mesh top. The heaviness of the jacket makes the top a little bit more bearable for the cold. I can never resist a good mesh top. I love how the mesh strops coincide with the ones on the sleeves. The mesh detailing and perforated design on the chest area makes the top so much more edgier, but also so much more difficult to style. 
At first, I thought this top was a little hard to style because of ALL the detail. I admit that there are pieces in the Alexander Wang x H&M collection that are quite hard to style. But when I first saw this top online, I knew I had to have it. I thought that the best way to pair this top was to just stick with pieces I'm comfortable with (or comfortable wearing).
I opted for my very laid back boyfriend jeans (that don't belong to my boyfriend). I could have easily picked up a pair of black jeans for this outfit for an all edgy black-and-white ensemble, but I chose my boy jeans from All Saints to make it much more casual for everyday wear. 
For accessories, I have on the usual bracelets I wear everyday and my new Chanel Wallet on Chain (WOC) that I recently bought in Kadewe, Berlin. My new wallet provides just the perfect amount of space for all my essentials: cash, credit card, phone, lipstick. 
For shoes, I have on a pair from Dune London. I am always on the look out for a good pair of ankle booties. Maybe my standards are high, but I can never find the right one in New York. When I saw this pair in Dune, I feel in love. 
 A year ago, I would have never worn this outfit. It's weird how much my style has changed, but more importantly, I feel so confident when I wear outfits I truly love. 
I hope you enjoyed this outfit post! Hopefully, I'll have more to come! 
Have a nice weekend~
