I was pretty happy when I saw this coat reduced in River Island before Christmas, I love some leopard print so it obviously had to be mine. It is a ‘boyfriend’ style jacket so is slightly over-sized, I think this gives it a slight vintage vibe, especially paired with the trusty faux fur! I have also recently appeared to have re-kindled my love for shirts, this one from H&M is especially cosy, such amazing material – H&M can do no wrong in my eyes! I don’t often ‘do’ checks, but I loved the subtle pattern of this and the fact that it’s nice and long. Pattern clashing also seems to be another favourite of mine – it’s so fun that this used to be completely agaisnt the rules of fashion, now we can wear all the patterns together, yess! And lastly, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this bag, the detailing and dark rich brown colour make it absolutely amazing. I am really into structured satchels at the moment so was overjoyed when I received this through my door. It’s amazing how a bag can transform an outfit.. and yes, that’s what I tell myself when I open my wardrobe and they all spill out.
Yikes, England is going through a bit of a cold spell at the moment, and ‘cold’ is a very polite way of putting it. I had to de-ice my car three times for work this morning.. THREE TIMES! How can de-icer ice up?! One of life’s mystery’s. Are you snowed in yet?!
