Outfit O'Clock #224 - Opposites Attract

UK fashion blogger styles boyfriend jeans UK fashion blogger styles boyfriend jeans UK fashion blogger styles boyfriend jeans UK fashion blogger styles boyfriend jeans
Boyfriend Fit Jeans - F&F at Tesco* £16 | Leopard Print Coat - River Island £15 (Previous January Sale purchase!) | White Cropped Tee - Miss Selfridge £10 | Colour Block Clutch - Matalan* £10 | Colour Block Shoes - Primark £12 | Necklace - New Look

It's Saturdaaaaaay!

Oh look! It's me stepping out of my comfort zone and wearing something that is truly the opposite to my normal 'granny' style. I actually like the outcome although it's taking me a while to get used to the idea of wearing boyfriend jeans out and about in public. I've always been brought up with the notion that boyfriend jeans are scruffy and should be used for when you're decorating or something, but I quite like the idea of wearing them with heels and a fur coat. It's a complete dichotomy - boyfriend jeans and opulence. But it works nicely. It's a nice dichotomy.

This coat was a massive bargain in the River Island January sale a few winters back. It was reduced from £80 to £15 - needless to say I snapped it up quicker than you could say 'Dot Cotton.' It's always been a bit 'oversized' on me and I nearly considered selling it last year as I felt like it was too big to wear out in public however I must've porked up or something because it seems to fit me better now.  Happy days for weight gain! (Put the cake down Tasha..)

What are your thoughts on this look? Yay, Nay or totes Cray?
