Winter Wear with Bench
During the winter months I NEED to be comfortable and warm whilst still looking put together, and stylish. I love this sporty look because both the leggings and the jacket fit like a glove, and keep body heat in keeping me super warm while outside running errands in the freezing temperatures! Ive been wanting a quilted jacket like this one for SO long, and am SO happy to have found the perfect one whilst working with such an awesome brand.
A Collaboration with Bench
In high school Bench was one of my favourite brands, I loved their sporty and edgy styles and back then having the brand written across your chest was all the rage. Its been years since I purchased anything by Bench and I am SO glad to have had the opportunity to collaborate with them, not only did I find HANDFULS of items whilst shopping at their NOTL location, my mind has changed from how I thought of the brand in high school. They still have sporty pieces as I picked up a pair of leggings and a jacket that would be perfect for running, hiking, or walking. But they also carry a TON of chic streetwear, I picked up this teddy coat and have been wearing it every single day for two weeks!
What I really love about these pieces is the ability to layer them and make two completely different looks, one sporty and one chic. It just goes to show how important and beneficial versatility is.
Pieces for the Future
As I get older, quality has become more important than quantity. I have slowly begun to only keep pieces in my closet that will be of value for a long period of time, with that said, ALL of these pieces will be in my closet for years to come. Brilliant quality, without sacrificing style is a win-win in my books.
