Not leather clad or dangerous.

White tee: c/o COLLECTIVE. Leather jacket: The Kooples. Joni jeans: £30, Topshop. Boots: Topshop. Ralph Lauren Sunglasses: Sunglassesshop. Necklace: Topshop. Watch: gift, Rotary.

Now, any of you who follow me on twitter may have noticed that I've been indulging in the music I love quite a bit recently. Last week, I headed down to Twickenham to see Chime for Change with my main girls Liv and Jaz, and then later that week we went slightly more more East to Rough Trade for the launch of Miles Kane's new album. Of course, I thought it only fair to channel their cool, and whip out the new "yay you've made it through three years of university treat yourself" present I picked up in the Kooples after about three hours of umm-ing and ahh-ing. I've always wanted a leather jacket, as anyone who's seen me in the same room as one will definitely know, and you could find me looking on every website from Bonprix (it's an online store I've recently come across, please keep me away from their festival shop) to Topshop in my attempts to find The One, but once I had the thumbs up from mama, I knew it'd be okay to finally enter my pin and do it. And, erm, here it is in all its glory.

To tone it down to make it more mosh pit than royal circle, I've paired it with my Jonis and a plain white tee. This particular t shirt is from a brand called COLLECTIVE, who have challenged me to style it three ways. You may have seen Monday's toned-down affair, and it's gonna be all-white on Friday (and I can't promise there won't be any puns, as there probably will be). About 90% of my tees are white, but all seem to be adorned with something band related (I'm looking at you, Morrissey). This one's a lovely lightweight material, that fits loosely enough to not weigh you down in the hot weather, so it'll be perfect for the Summer, if it ever shows its head. I am consciously trying to build up a wardrobe of good quality basics, so this one fits right in.
