Faux Fur Coat with Boyfriend Jeans (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup)

 I honestly never thought i would be the person who would fall head over ankle bootie clad heels for a faux fur coat. I was just never that in to them before and the Pat Butcher connotations were just a little too much.

But with time comes age, and with age comes not giving a damn and that's how i feel about my beautiful new creamy faux fur coat.
I mentioned it in a Seven on Sunday post that i bought this when i was out shopping with hubby and he said he liked it (cue image of moi with mouth agog!). Its so crazily soft its like being a giant teddy bear. This is the size 8 which is a little snug , but i think i would prefer that than gaping and oversized. Its still on sale too but only a few sizes left.

So with my teddy bear-esque pea coat i knew i wanted to add in my (also new) boyfriend jeans that I've been banging on about for a couple of weeks now.
Firstly, i love boyfriend jeans. They're comfy and easy to wear plus i do think they're versatile (not just for slobbing around the house in).
I really do like the idea of these jeans for a smart occasion, the black braid down the seam of these facilitates nicely in their dressing up ( I say dressing up, i'm not talking balls or cocktail occasions here. I'm talking about a meal or a drink down the pub type smart).
Add in a black top and some smart boots and you've got something along those vague lines of smart-casual. Which is exactly what i did.
The faux fur coat over the top just takes it to another level (i'm not sure what that level is..but it takes it to it none the less)

Even Hubby approved which if you knew him, you would realise why i practically tripped over his compliment, stumbling with shock in to a wall of surprise.

My faux fur collection is amounting quite nicely as the years are going on, which is honestly something i never thought i would say.

Are you a faux fur fan?

  1. I bet you'd be nice to cwtch in that jacket Rachel! I love faux fur myself, I have some shrugs and wraps and tippets, but don't have a faux fur jacket anymore as I threw a few out years ago when I put on weight. I'd love to add another one to my collection though.

    Have a super weekend! xx

  5. You look amazing as per usual. So wanted to buy the Mango Leopard print coat but the print scares me a bit so it would be more a case of it wearing me as opposed to me wearing it. Need to sort my confidence issues! X

  6. Gorgeous coat and winter look Rachel,

  11. LOVING this look... especially the coat!!

  12. How apt that you wore fur the week I did a faux fur theme on the #iwillwearwhatilike link up, Rachel!! This coat is stunning - but it's hardly surprising as it's a near match for my wedding day white furry coat! I wasn't sure whether to wear mine any more, but I think I should try it with bf jeanns like you. Love the go-faster stripe yours have, hehe!

    Have a wonderful weekend my lovely, and thanks for hosting!
