- Outfit of the Day: Faux Fur...

Coat: Urbancode London
Top: New Look
Jeans: ASOS
Boots: New Look

I'm genuinely embarrassed by the lack of outfit posts on my blog lately.

Did I even post an AW15 one? Who knows. I blame moving and settling into the big smoke, the lack of daylight and the fact I hardly bought any new clothes during Winter (shocking, I know).

You may have read in my previous 'Sunday Summary' post (here), I spent last Saturday with Serene and Carolin gallivanting around Notting hill and Kensington. We stopped off to shoot a few outfit photos and let me tell you, they're the perfect duo!

When it came to deciding what to wear, I seemed to settle for a fairly Wintery getup. I was so tempted to layer up the beautiful jumpsuit I recently purchased but knew I'd regret it and end up shivering my bones off, so I chose comfort and practicality instead.

What happened? The sun actually decided to shine, and so I melted.

But I ended up loving the outfit anyway...

Faux fur with Autumnal mustard and berry shades thrown in may seem a little old now we're heading into Spring (woo), but this outfit is right up my street. The white trim of the faux fur jacket adds a lovely depth to the outfit, and who can say no to a polo/turtle neck?

As much as I adore pastels, when it comes to clothing I tend to reach for darker shades. I guess I play a little safe and think these suit me more, but for 2016 I'm going to make an effort to expand my wardrobe with colours and prints I wouldn't typically opt for.

So, whilst I love this outfit and feel 100% comfortable in it, let's see where my future outfit posts take me. Wish me luck with experimenting!

What do you think of this outfit? Let me know in the comments below!

  6. I do love pastels but I just don't feel that they suit me. They kind of wash me out. Outfits like this are right up my street. I love the faux fur jacket and boots. Your hair is also gorgeous, I'd kill for perfect loose curls like yours!

  26. You look gorgeous Karen, I love how these photos turned out! Your whole ensemble is so very A/W chic. I dunno about London, but here in Edinburgh it's still freezing-ass cold, even if it is a lot brighter now, so I'm still digging my jumpers and faux fur coats. Speaking of which, yours is lovely! I recently also jumped on the mustard-loving bandwagon. I don't know how, I used to hate it, but recently I've been purchasing a lot of mustard-coloured products, haha!
