The Monday Piece - The Varsity jacket

The Monday Piece this week is on Varsity jackets! I love varsity jackets and that American high school kind of 'look'. I was a cheerleader captain in University and the American Football lads had the coolest jackets, though they were custom made and came from the States and cost a small fortune - i did ponder taking one from the changing rooms but felt too naughty so didn't! Anyway, i've loved them ever since and have recently been on the hunt for the right jacket with the right colours that wasn't ridiculously priced. SO pleased i found this one, it's a boys but i got the smallest size and think it fits ok, there's plenty of room to get a chunky jumper underneath too. I was tempted to try it on with my old cheer kit and take some photos but i though that might be a bit too much, my old kits royal blue and white - it's amazing, i might take one for twitter and post it on there! The body of the jacket is thick wool, and the sleeves are faux leather, the colours and style are quite traditional which i love, i'm pleased i went for this as opposed to the standard black and white version. Are you a fan of Varsity jackets?
Have a great New Year however you celebrate, i'm hoping to have a quiet one with champagne and food!
