The other day i mentioned that leopard print/animal prints have been turning my head more than previously, and how i found a sudden liking for them. Well, that liking shot up a notch recently when i found this skirt, tried it on in the changing rooms and declared love from there on out.
I’ve never been drawn to leopard print, i had a scarf that previously saw not much wear, and some classic pumps, but that was it. Small doses was enough. Now i can not get enough!
It feels so different for me, but in a good way. It was so easy-to-wear with its a stretchy mid length pencil skirt it was a great length for practicality but i felt pretty damn snazzy in it (snazzy, not a cool word? something your parents would say trying to be cool? oh dear…) Out of the comfort zone of dressing but definitely in the comfort zone of wearing. I can see this becoming a definite staple in my wardrobe, perhaps a little remix with a striped top, and there are some great colour options coming to mind for it too.
I decided to go for a simple black and chocolate brown theme today, just keeping it super super simple, but i have to say i was so happy with the outcome.. this is up there in my top 5 (ever changing list) of outfits. I think hubs even liked it and he is not a big animal print fan…at all. I think i may have converted him and me!
And this new faux leather jacket is just a beaut. I have wanted a chocolate colour biker jacket (rather than a light tan colour) for a long time, this one goes so so well with my amazing Chocolate knee high Lotus boots i just couldnt say no..Plus jackets are investments aren’t they?! And i do believe it is the kind of piece that will really make a lot of my outfits really come together. Can you tell im rather pleased? heehee.
I actually wore this on a nice evening date with the hubs, we had yummy food in our favourite pub and the went to see Thor 2 (which FYI, was awesome and unexpectedly funny in parts but you know, caped Chris Hemsworth, need i say more?) We’ve really missed our cinema and date nights since Neo started school as we have been without my beloved mum once a week. But that just made this one all the better. I have to say there are some amazing films coming out soon, we saw the trailer for the new xmen film and the 2nd hobbit, which has Legolas in (yay!!). If you didn’t know im a huge film geek, like huge! and just a bit of a geek in general really,haha.
