A New Leopard Trilby, an Oversized Cardi & Beloved Boots

White cardi, brown boots & leopard trilby

Slouchy cardigan, slouchy sweatshirt, slouchy boots… but somehow I didn’t feel slouchy in this outfit.

In fact, I kinda loved it. This cardigan comes out every winter, and although it’s two sizes too big, I do like it that way because I can layer to my heart’s content with it. I bought the leopard trilby weeks ago and just haven’t worn it on the blog yet, but here it is in all its feline printed gorgeousness. I’m definitely a hats girl, and have wanted one of these since forever.

And the boots? I can’t believe I have perhaps only worn these once on the blog before. Yet I wear them almost to death every autumn / winter / spring – I’m amazed they haven’t fallen to pieces. They are so old I can’t even remember anything about buying them, apart from the fact they were from TopShop. I think. But I love them and reckon they will just fall apart one day, long before I decide they have to go 😉

    The boots are great! I have pieces like that (that I wear to death). I wish I had two of some things. Other items barely get worn. It's so hard to know what you're going to love.

    The hat is fantastic too! I've been wanting that type of hat but never thought to get an animal print one.

    • 17 March 2013 / 10:41 pm

      Heehee not at all, Karri – I do get a lot of comments about my eyebrows…!! Thank you so much, I am quite particular about them so it's nice to get compliments where they're concerned (they're just weird au naturel, you see…)!!!

      Thanks sweetie xoxo

    It is a lovely combination. I envy you for your creativity. The hat and the necklace make the outfit not slouchy. I think.
    Love it.
