How I style the Velvet padded Jacket

January is a bit of a funny month isn't it? I feel like in this month we can be in a great frame of mind to set new goals but on the other hand some things can feel rather slow and demotivating in this dull month. I feel like right now I'm in a good mindset to start the 5:2 diet again (I do it more for disciplining myself than the losing weight part..although losing half a stone would be fab!), and I have been really eager to shoot outfits, but then last Monday my laptop broke and I literally felt like I wanted to throw the towel in. I was just dreading how much it was going to cost to fix (bare in mind I did spend a grand and a half on a camera last month). Luckily it got fixed when I went to Milton Keynes the other day and I only had to replace the hard drive (thank the lord it only cost me £140!) I think now that I've got a working camera and now a working laptop I'm just hoping to get my creative juices flowing again! My other goal this year would be to learn Photoshop and Lightroom so I'm hoping to make a start on that next week on one of my days off. I feel like now that I've got this advanced full frame camera, I really do need to fully understand it and I want to learn the process on how to give my photographs its best finished edit. 

So I am sure you have seen floating around all of these padded jackets or maybe even velvet padded jackets! I was rather against these to be fair, considering I am a jacket person and my wardrobe is over flowing with different styles, however this padded style jacket hasn't really tempted me, nor have I found one that I've really fallen for. 

But then I came across this Boohoo grey velvet padded jacket and thought it had some potential. 

I have to admit, by getting the size down, its a massive yes from me! 
It's genuinely such a nice thick warm jacket but I didn't feel like I was melting in it! It also comes in a deep green colour and a bright pink! I have been obsessed with grey this season so I honestly can't fault this! 
I actually really struggled and had creative fog when I thinking of a way to style this jacket. After looking through my old feed (I like to see how I've styled jackets in the past) and with some help from google, I opted for the velvet cami over the white top combo!!

This set together does seem to work for almost any outfit and thats because monochrome match is rather flattering on the top half of the body! Me personally I also prefer thin layering compared to a heavy chunky knit because I hate the feeling of being restricted if I can't move my arms with all the thick clothing! 
I am also loving these New Look boots that I got for Christmas! They have only just gone into sale but I think all sizes are in stock! The simple zip is nice feature and makes them easy to wear with all my outfits!
