Faux Fur Leopard Coat Outfit
Keeping in line with my resolution of wearing my pieces multiple times and re-creating outfits with them, rather than buying everything new this year, this is my second look of 2018 doing just that. Every single item that I’m wearing here is something you have seen before, numerous times for some of them, but styled in a completely different way. The thing I’m enjoying most about this is the fact that it’s saving me money as it’s been really tight the past few months, but it’s also giving a new lease of life to my wardrobe and showing how much versatility some of the items have. Obviously I’m not going to go the entire year without anything new at all though as that’s not possible in this line of work, so I have saved room for about 3 purchases off my wish list, of which I will share with you very soon in a 2018 wish list blog post!
Now getting to the actual outfit, I opted to wear my Cupcakes & Cashmere Faux Fur Leopard Coat again (see it here before), this time layering it over my Allsaints Roll Neck Jumper (see it here). It was a tight fit as this coat is slim and the jumper is thick, but it was needed in the freezing temperatures (I’m sure you can spot my pink skin, ha ha). I wanted to go with more of a colourful theme, but in an Autumnal palette, so I chose my 7 For All Mankind Burgundy Skinny Jeans (see here) to tuck into my Sam Edelman Blake Boots, which I’ve worn so many times I can’t count. I then added on my Valentino Mini Lock Bag in Light Ivory as a finishing touch to add some elegance to the overall look. This Valentino (Click Here – ON SALE) has came in useful for so many looks!
This wasn’t actually an outfit that I had planned in advance, it was something that I threw on at the time and I wasn’t sure if I liked the boots with it or not, but I went with it. I know faux fur leopard coats are still a huge trend at the moment and so many different retailers have their own, so I’m glad I got to style it again as I think the more that fashion bloggers show these leopard coats can be worn in a classic and fashionable way, the more they will lose their stigma over time. I know Cat Slater from Eastenders always springs to mind when I think of them. Anyone else? Ha ha. This one by Cupcakes & Cashmere though is really elegant. Anyway, let me know what you think of this outfit in the comments below! Plus, don’t forget to scroll down as there’s some more text and different photos!
And below is where we first started off shooting the photos in amongst the Autumn leaves. It had started to get dark in the park though at around 3:30pm and this excitable dog had chose to come running over to me to play and step on my boots, so I was cautious, but he was adorable. I’m sure I have a radar for animals, wherever I am, they find me as they know I’m friendly, ha ha. We had to vacate the park though as he was starting to make my boots muddy and we weren’t able to do the photos, which is why we settled on the street for the final location. I did like these two photos though with the orange leaves, so I’ve included them anyway as an addition to the blog post. Which location do you like most? Lorna xx.
