Leopard, White & Black

Leopard coat with a white dress

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 πŸ™

Have a WONDERFUL Easter weekend, everyone! Hope you all get a bit of a break πŸ™‚

    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.

    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!

      Hehe it wasn't that I wished for the cold weather, I just was pleased I could still wear my coat. I'd give anything for it to be warmer, believe me!!!


      Thanks for your vote, hun x

    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.

    Voting was easy and you definitely deserve it!

    This is one of my favourite outfits you showed us. Love it.

    Your coat is gorgeous… I saw a trench coat in leopard print at my favourite store that I am considering… It may be a little young though. Off now to vote for you… Good luck Catherine
