|Leopard Print Coat: H&M|
Red Knitted Turtleneck Jumper: H&M*
Castile Pencil Straight Leg Jeans: ASOS
Kendall Suede Taupe Loafers: Topshop
Hold the phone, an outfit of the day where I'm not wearing head to toe Topshop, no I can't quite believe it either. After weeks of scouring the shops for all of the knitwear I'm thrilled to have finally found some winners from high street stalwart H&M. Now I hate to use the term killing it 'cos I say it far too often but H&M certainly are and their knitwear is exceptional, especially for the price so it'll come as no surprise when I say how much I adore this turtleneck. The colour brings the loveliest flush of colour to my cheeks, the fit has that perfect borrowed from the husband vibe and the cotton blend means you don't royally overheat when you pop a thermal underneath. Usually I shop H&M online but I actually picked this turtleneck up and a few other pieces (stay tuned) from The Broadway in Bradford who kindly got in touch and asked me to fill my Autumn Winter boots with a rather handy gift card. The shopping centre is perfectly formed making it ideal for those wanting to spend with a toddler in tow - it's incredibly easy to navigate and did I mention the super sweet train which runs around? So cute.
While we're on the subject of favourites I've got to mention these straight leg jeans. ASOS has never been somewhere I've shopped for denim but after buying these I'm starting to wonder why, not only are they incredibly affordable but they fit well and feel very current - I literally haven't stopped reaching for these blue eyed wonders since I bought them. My final new arrival are these taupe loafers which I fell head over heels for as soon as I saw them, thanks to the suede make up they fit like a glove whilst giving a nod to Gucci. Pulling my look together is an old favourite, a leopard print coat. For me leopard print is a fail safe every Autumn Winter, a classic if you will so I doubt I'll tire of pulling this cover up out of my wardrobe and letting it bring some necessary pizzazz to a simple everyday look. I actually bought this coat two years ago (and blogged about it here) but if you fancy your own slice of leopard print action then hit the high street pronto - Topshop, River Island and ASOS all have grand versions.
I actually wore this look for what felt like the worlds longest Sunday thanks to Sadie waking up at an hour that Sundays should only see in the pm format. Even though the day was full of rain we managed to turn it around by going out for brunch at new favourite Show Me Joni and in the evening I finally got to see Girl On The Train with the girls which I found a tad disappointing as a lover of the book. Tell me what you thought if you've seen it?
What are your thoughts on leopard print? Do you rate H&M as much as me?
