Denim Jacket Love Part 1

Okay okay so anyone who properly knows me will know that I am both a late 90s/early 00s lover as well as Gigi Hadid (and Kendall and many many others) are my girl crushes. I just love them. 

I currently have a little obsession with denim jackets, and I feel I need to share...

Recently I was scrolling through Instagram, when I came across this image of Karlie Kloss and Gigi Hadid wearing these customised denim jackets featuring a design based around what I think resembles a Greek/Turkish eye, and a personalised name/ 'motto' adding the personal touch.

I had just purchased my Watermelon Jacket from Asos, and was like 'noooo why do I only want denim' and then I thought, 'actually, is that such a bad thing?' (The answer to this became a likely when I insisted on packing my watermelon jacket with me to Malaga just in case I wanted/needed it- given that it was 30 degrees most days I think this may have been a little obsessive!!)

I had been contemplating buying a men's denim jacket from the place that I work all summer (making the most of the discount and men's denims jackets tend to have a better shape!) but couldn't decide if I wanted to customise it or simply keep it plain, however after seeing this jacket I knew I needed to make my own slightly different version of this jacket. I'm slightly nervous about creating this piece, naturally I tend to go for slightly more 'quirky' pieces, yet I also like simplicity, however there's a little pet of me that people will be like 'what is she wearing...' - aaah problems!

I've trawled Etsy, Asos and Skinnydip for everything I need, and now I am just waiting for all of the pieces to arrive- I'm still not 100% sure on my ideas, and it might be that I use some of the patched I have ordered else where, but I will be sure to update you once I have created the finished product!

Are you liking the denim jacket trend currently?
