OOTD: Love Leopard




~ Outfit Details ~ 
Faux Fur Leopard Print Coat - New Look
Arizona Rock Tank Top - Topshop
Tan Bodycon Mini Skirt - New Look
Black Suede Loafers - New Look
Rings - Topshop / Primark
Cross Pendant - Topshop
Felt Boater Hat - Claires Accessories

Guess what? I finally got around to taking some new outfit photos! I'm not too impressed with the quality of these though. I think the pictures were taken from too far away, so when it came to editing them I had to zoom in quite a lot which has unfortunately distorted the quality, but at least I know for next time, right? It also looks like the tips of my hair are red when they're actually blondey brown, and I didn't even use a flash!

I didn't realise that the majority of my outfit is from New Look until I did the outfit list, which is a bit weird because I rarely shop there, but I had a 20% off voucher and I knew they had 'the' coat I wanted. So I finally own the perfect leopard print coat, I picked it up in the New Look kids section as they didn't have my size it the adult version and to be honest I actually prefer this as it's not quite as bulky as the adult version and was £12 cheaper so a snip at just £26.

I also picked up these loafers for only £16 with my discount, and for real suede I'm pretty impressed with the price and they're really comfortable, and they go with EVERYTHING.

In other news I got my official redundancy letter yesterday, confirming the final amount I'll receive at the end of this month (19 days and counting!!!) I felt a little sad, although this is what I wanted, it's like the end of an era, I achieved so much working in my current position and feel scared for the future, but it's time for a change. It's given me the opportunity for a fresh start and some very exciting times ahead.

I've added a few things to my eBay shop and I still have lots for sale in my Blog Shop, so if you get a spare few minutes why not pop over there and take a look.

Love, love, love this look! You're like Penny Lane in Almost Famous meets Kate Moss by way of Taylor Momsen (her classier outfits only of course!).

I'm pleased you got the outcome you wanted with your redundancy but it must be slightly scary to be free to chase what you really want - very exciting though!

You look amazing! Love this look on you :) I'm a bit jealous of your wall, I would love a wall for outfit photos aha.
Good luck with your fresh start. I don't blame you for being scared about the future, but I've known so many people that have been made redundant & it's been a blessing in disguise! I'm sure it will be with you too!

Saw the leopard print on my bloglovin reader and how could I resist having a look? You look fabulous, so pretty. Good luck with everything, I've probably already told you but everything will be ok. You are going to have the TIME OF YOUR LIFE with everything you have planned and you are going to return, wiser, happier and ready for anything xxxx

Ah, LOVE the coat so much! I bought a white faux fur coat from new look (via ebay!) for about £3 but it doesn't suit me. I'm going to try and make it work but i do want a leopard print one instead! I feel like i can't buy another fur coat because i've already got one. :( x

Those shoooes! Me needy. I've found that New Look shoes run a bit big, though, what do you think? Anyway I think your photos turned out fine, despite having to zoom in and stuff, and you look BADASS and damn girl, you've got some legs on you.

JMBFK said...

I love those rings! they're amazing I want every single one in my wardrobe!!
