Penny’s for a pound

So this month I’ve been saving money and have really had to watch my spending. I have actually shocked myself and am doing pretty well.
As the saying goes, save the penny’s and the pounds will take care of themselves.

Well that’s all well and good, but it does then mean you have more pounds to spend. So, surely then it’s only right to invest in something. Which is why I’ve decided to invest in this little beauty. I know it’s a bit counter-active but I can’t help it.

I’ve been looking for the perfect leather for ages. This is it. I have been looking at vintage aviator type ones, as I sometimes think that newer leather can look quite stiff, even the more expensive brands. I also decided I didn’t want black, as sometimes they can look quite harsh and a bit too bikery (is that a word?).

This is perfect, it actually reminds me of a Burberry style I saw a while ago, but is obviously less then a quarter of the price. It’s got a beautiful distressed finish and just enough detail to make it classic enough to be the perfect Investment for the future. I absolutely love it. What do you all think?
Shame I’ve got to wait until next month to save enough penny’s.

Its from Whistles and is available now.
