- Faux Fur...

Bobtail Jacket: Urbancode London
Shirt: Topshop
Leggings: Zara
Boots: Online Avenue*

There's something about wearing faux fur on cold, frosty mornings that makes me feel like I've travelled to the land of Narnia (just me?). Faux fur is an odd one. A few years ago, I would have ran a mile at the sight of it; isn't it weird how a trend becomes timeless and personal tastes change?

I guess that's what keeps fashion interesting - the way it evolves. You hate a trend one minute, then the next you can't get enough of it. I felt similarly with turtle necks, tartan and brogues. Of course, there are still 'trends' we will personally remain stubborn about, (Uggs, I'm looking at you) but isn't it interesting how some things change.

So, here I am in a faux fur jacket. It's super cosy, lightweight, dip-dyed, and I love it!

What do you think of this outfit? Have your views on any trends changed? Let me know in the comments!

  30. I was looking for faux fur grey jacket this Winter for when I was traveling around Europe - it's a little late for me now (living in Dubai) but looks lovely on you. Especially in that crispy cold weather!

  32. My tastes have deffo changed a lot over the years. For instance I now love anything midi or maxi whereas a few years ago I would have scoffed at the idea of wearing either. Though I do remain solid on hating Uggs and, weirdly, blazers. Really loving the faux fur on you and I couldn't have thought of a more fitting place to wear it :)

  33. I'd've run a mile at faux fur a couple of years ago too, now I'm lusting after so many jackets you'd think I'd skipped eras or something. Love the simplicity of the styling, also your photo spot looks gorgeous!

  34. That coat is gorgeous, I know what you mean about faux fur, I'm still on the hunt for something that I can actually pull off:') Also love those Narnia-esque frosty mornings when the sun is still shining - makes the cold weather bearable!

  35. Lovely look and I love the background of the shots...so much nicer to see OOTDs outside in the fresh air and in natural surroundings. I know what you mean about tastes changing...I've become one for casual blazers and pointed boots lately...something my younger self would have cringed a bit at I think! :) Danielle x

  36. I never used to like fur either and never thought I'd see myself in it, then about four years ago I bought my first faux fur coat and now I love it, if it's done right. This jacket is really lovely, I love the grey colour :) xx

  37. I love your coat. I'm obsessed with fur but I avoid wearing it when I'm in town as animal welfare people used to shout if they saw anyone wearing what they thought was real fur. I agree there is nothing better than putting a warm furry jacket on when it's cold!

  38. What an absolutely gorgeous jacket!! I do love a bit of faux fur, i never feel confident enough to wear it where i live but would fit in with it in London perfectly! Love the dip dyed effect too :) xx

  39. I know what you mean - I hate bootcut and flare jeans but I'm sure I'll end up wearing them next time they come into style in a major way ;) Love that fur coat!

  40. Lovely jacket, Fur wouldn't suit me but it really does suit you!
    I used to never wear jeans because I didn't think they suited me, I live in them now.
