Leopard Lovin’ (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup)

I do love a little bit of leopard, my darling husband hates it.Walking out the door to take these photos he asked,

“Are you sure you want to take photos? Y’know ‘cos that jacket its horrendous”. 

Cheers love. 

Of course my reply was “Yes, its fabulous, I love it, now take my God damn photo!” (I’m an angry model ๐Ÿ˜‰

I love leopard print, man-repeller or not, I don’t care, I just bought the most amazing pair of leopard print loafers, I have scarves, bags you name it. Its a neutral in my books, but a neutral with a bit more oomph. Bringing the jazz hands to any outfit nicely even in a neutral.

I saw this jacket recently in my local Sainsbury’s and just thought it should be mine. With the Blue short sleeved knit it just had a retro feel that I just really liked. I finished off with the necklace I can’t seem to stop wearing as it’s just so good and one of the new blue clutches.

Ok, So enough of the outfit, are well taking a collective sigh of relief that its Friday? I now I am. Wine is chilling, and the takeaway may as well be pre-ordered as I am so ready to kick back and switch off .. well switch off as much as you can when you have children.. hence the wine, ‘cos that always helps.

Also sidenote: Did you notice that strange, bright shiny light in these photo’s? I know.. I’m as shocked as you are, the sun came out for a whole morning and I nearly died from exposure. No, but seriously it was such a mood lifter. Needless to say its gone again now and the murky, grey that we all know and not love has resumed. Twas nice whilst it lasted.

    The cobalt blue looks great. And so does the jacket! Glad you are not listening to your husband regarding leopard! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Have a fabulous weekend!

    Who cares what they say… We love us a good leopard print, hehe!!! Rachel I just LOVE the jacket – especially with blue, I wouldn't have thought to put it with a cool colour myself, but it works!! Super stylish as always ๐Ÿ™‚

    Plus I'm glad you explained what the bright shiny light thing in your photos was. I had the same thing the other weekend and it confused the hell out of me…!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Husbands can be so funny! I love your jacket, especially with the cobalt shirt! Beautiful necklace too!

    Such a gorgeous coat and the cobalt looks amazing with it! I purchased a leopard coat a month or so ago, and not it is entirely too warm to wear it. Sadness…

    What a fabulous statement coat! Leopard and cobalt were made to be paired together!

  10. March 12, 2016 / 5:07 pm

    That is a beautiful shade of blue! I love it with your animal print coat!

    I love a bit of leopard print – and you wear it so well!! It looks amazing teamed with blue, it really suits your colouring.
    Thank you for explaining about the bright shiny thing. I have yet to see it in Yorkshire, but at least I'll know what it is if it ever arrives ?

    Yessss…Those jacket is fabulous and I'm all kinds of obsessed with cobalt!

  14. March 14, 2016 / 3:23 pm

    That sounds exactly like something MY husband would say. It just proves that women dress for themselves not for men! Love animal print and you nailed that outfit!

    Cobalt blue and leopard print are such a heavenly combination! Love how vibrant and chic this whole look is for winter!

    My husband makes similar comments when I wear my leopard print coat…he calls me Lilo Lil (only people of a certain age who grew up in the UK will know what he means!) and he has a similar opinion of all faux fur coats, but he lives in holey t-shirts and jeans so I'm not taking fashion advice from him!
