Leopard, White & Black + Blogger Award: Please Vote For Me!

This is one of my favourite looks from a couple of weeks ago (I'm a bit behind) - this Zara leopard and black coat is just so gorgeous, I'm secretly pleased that the weather has stayed cold enough for me to continue to wear it (I've worn it today to the office, in fact).

It looks so lovely with white underneath, though I've yet to get in my head that leopard is a neutral as so many bloggers say - I think it's because it's such a statement piece that I want all the attention to be on the coat! I might have to see if I can add something glaringly bright before the summer rolls around and I have to put it away till October or so. Though at the rate we're going with the temperatures in Blighty, my summer wardrobe may have to stay in storage for a while longer :(


Two important things to share with you lovely people!

1. I'm up for a major UK blogger award - please please please vote for me!

BIF Vote for Me button
This is the first time I've ever entered anything of this scale before - it's a regional blogger award to find the best blogger from Bath and the surrounding areas (South West England). The public can vote once per person (one per IP address as far as I can tell), and you don't have to enter any personal details at all. I am so unbelievably excited so please vote for me on your laptops, PCs, phones - every device you have!

Thank you so much for your support and let me know if you've voted!!! #flippinbesidemyself


2. Don't forget to enter my £30 Zalando voucher giveaway - see bottom of the post for details.

Phew I think that's it... have a WONDERFUL Easter weekend, everyone! Hope you all get a bit of a break :)

  14. Of course I voted for you. Of course you should win. Of course you look perfect in this outfit (terrific boots as well).
    I am planning on a short holiday end of June in Bath as a matter of fact. There seems to be rather a good (expensive) hotel that takes dogs as well.

    1. Oh Bath is just gorgeous, Greetje! You'll love it! Thank you thank you x

  15. That is a terrific coat, but please stop wishing for cold weather! I have asked myself for some weeks now who is still wishing for cold weather and now you answered my question. Sorry, but I have asked all my readers to wear spring clothes so that Miss Spring will arrive. I hope our team will win, but I have to say that you seem to have a very good contact with the person that is in charge of the weather.
    Despite your bad wish I gave you my vote - it was easy peasy!

  25. Okay, OKAY! I give up. I do completely adore you leopard coat. Leopard meets minimalist. I could be up for that ... but I usually just don't feel leopard prints. You look ... astonishing. And I hate being so wrong!
    Good luck to you ... I agree with Bella.
