The ombre faux fur gilet with skinny jeans and platforms
I’m super excited as I’m leaving for London tomorrow morning to attend the UK Blog Awards 2015. As you might already know, The Jeans Blog was shortlisted down to the final 10 in the fashion category, so I’m keeping my fingers and toes tightly crossed in the hope that it wins! It would mean a huge amount to me if the judges picked it as the amount of work that has gone into that site is crazy! When you are so passionate about something though, as I am about denim and blogging, it just comes together and becomes a part of life. I’m really looking forward to the awards though as some fashion bloggers that I know online are attending, so it’s going to be nice to meet them.
Getting to my outfit, I wore this look a couple of weeks ago when it was a little more chilly outside. I got this Topshop Faux Fur Ombre Gilet a little while ago and I absolutely love it. I’m not used to wearing so much faux fur at once and I was apprehensive about it as I know it can make you look larger, but that’s why I chose the sleeveless option so I didn’t look bulky. I paired it with a simple long sleeve white top for warmth and chose my Citizens of Humanity Rocket Crop Skinny Jeans in Aura to go with it. I truly am living in these jeans right now, they are one of my favourites for everyday wear! Finally, to maybe give it more of a 70’s feel, I went with my Topshop Slick Platform Heels. Despite them being really high, they are actually really comfortable and easy to walk in. What do you think of this outfit? I would love to know!
