The Shearling Aviator Jacket By The River

The Shearling Aviator Jacket With Skinny Jeans

I’m going to keep this blog post shorter as unfortunately I came down with a cold/flu this morning and haven’t been feeling too good all day, so I’m pretty tired, but in order to keep to my schedule, this outfit post has to go out today. I hope you all had a lovely weekend, despite the rain if you’re in the UK. With the freezing cold weather we have been having, I’m definitely layering up even more than this if I can, but it wasn’t as cold a couple of weeks ago when we shot these photos.

For my outfit that I wore, I chose my River Island Faux Fur Aviator Jacket as the focal piece. I love this jacket as the sleeves are elasticated and fitted, but it’s so warm at the same time. I layered it over a long sleeve white top (which you can’t see) and then put my ALLSAINTS Manson Vest in Olive Green over that to create the layers. I chose my James Jeans Skinny Jeans in Slate Grey, to play off the black and white theme, then added in some fun with my Ted & Muffy Medusa Boots, and extra black with my Balenciaga Mini City in Black Suede. What do you think of the Aviator Jacket? Plus, isn’t that little family of swans just the sweetest? Mummy, daddy, and two children. I love that!

      Lol! I know exactly what you mean, mine has seriously expanded recently!

    Great looking coat and shoes Lorna! Hope you feel better. I’ve had a bug too the last three days, miserable.

      Thank you, John! I really hope you feel better soon too!

      Thank you! River Island make some good stuff, don’t they?

    Firstly, I hope that you feel much better soon – and certainly so in time for Christmas. πŸ™‚

    Of course, I love the outfit. The jeans are a gorgeous shade of grey and look fabulous with the lovely jacket. Slate Grey is precisely the right descriptive colour name for those jeans – I might even have guessed that one! πŸ˜€ The olive green top is really nice too. Olive isn’t, I’ll confess, a shade of green that I particularly favour to wear myself but I love how it looks in your outfit and green always looks great – this one especially so with the turning leaves in the background.

    Those swans look like they are expecting a feeding. πŸ˜‰

      Thank you, Steven! I am starting to feel a bit better now thankfully πŸ™‚

      The swans definitely were expecting feeding and we never had any food, we were going to go to the shop and get some but a lady with a dog walked by and she had food, so she fed them, thankfully!

      I thought you would have liked olive actually as it’s green, but I guess it is a dull shade isn’t it. Really pleased you like the outfit!

      • December 21, 2016 / 3:20 pm

        Oh, I do like the olive green. πŸ™‚ Sorry if I was a bit confusing. All I meant was that it’s not a shade of green that looks as good on me as some others do. But it looks great on you. πŸ˜€

          Oh I get it! Makes sense!

    Lorna. .. I like the jacket, it’s cute and it looks cozy. I do hope you feel better soon, being sick is tiring. Get as much rest as you can… try not to push yourself too much xox β™‘

      Thank you so much, Launna!

    Dear Lorna,

    I’m sorry to hear you’ve come down with a cold and haven’t been feeling well. I do hope you get better very soon and make a speedy recovery.

    As for the outfit, you look simply stunning as always! I love the jacket, it looks so warm, as well as the jeans and total look. The Medusa boots are incredible and they look so good on you! It’s lovely that you were able to capture those images of the swan family too. They’re so sweet and adorable!

    I wish and hope for your well-being and health, and for you to be at your best again.

    Lots of love Saba xx

    The swans are, for sure, so sweet! And you look very sweet and beautiful too, with this shearling coat and the amazing boots and bag! Really a great outfit, I like this kind of look very much – polished up and cool! I am sorry about your cold/flu, I hope you recover well soon! It’s not good to catch it during a cold month, but then try to relax as much as you can and your body will thank you! Hope you have a very nice day!

    Very beautiful wintry outfit! I like this kind of jackets and I had similar aviator jacket some time ago. Although I see this one you has worn is much prettier, because mine was oversized a bit, and I gave it even fast. I like that your is a suede one. Mine was not from RI, but I know this high street and I like them. This small bag is also gorgeous and I adore olive green shade… When it comes to talk about the swans family they look very similar for the family we have on the pond, where I use to walk my dog. We have three adults and one grey kid and tons of a seaguls. And my dog is going mad, whenever I’m about to feed them – I cannot because she is running with light speed around me πŸ™‚

    • December 27, 2016 / 3:11 am

      Ha ha, that sounds really sweet with your dog and the birds πŸ˜€ I hope they manage to get some food after your dog calms down. Very happy you love the outfit though, Claire, thank you!

      • January 11, 2017 / 6:23 pm

        Ha, ha it’s impossible for her to calm down! I told the story to my Mom and she went alone for feeding them.
        Have worn, by the way, it’s my mistake πŸ™‚
