Feeling sheepish

I'm so glad that I've managed to kick-start 2014 with a wonderful shearling coat. Once only seen on pilots and bikers, it is now a sartorial mainstay and I've had my eye out for a shearling piece for quite some time.

Shearling is sheepskin that has been sheared so that all of the wool is of a uniform length so typically it will be woolly on one side and suede on the other.

I love this coat not only for it's aesthetics but also for it's weight. It is just warm enough to keep me snug until the end of winter but it's light enough to wear well into spring.


I managed to pick up this faux shearling Mango coat for the BAAAA-gain price of £19.99.

Now we're reaching the end of this season, what spring coats/jackets will you be on the lookout for?

  2. Very cute! I always regret that I didn't save my parents old sheepskin coats from our first house. They had these huge, heavy-weight coats that used to live under the stairs and now I would kill to have one of them.

    1. Oh no! That's such a shame. I have one of my mum's old ones but it's far too big, I just can't seem to pull it off..

      Thank you for reading my post :)

  3. Thanks so much for the follow! I really appreciate it :) Following you back now!
    This is a great post and you have such a gorgeous outfit - I'm so tempted to order this if it's still in stock, so cheap and it looks really expensive!

    1. Go for it! I was really dubious when I ordered it, I assumed it would lack in quality but it feels really expensive! They're still available online and they had some in my local store so I'm sure you can grab one. It comes in some other colours too.

      Thanks for commenting.

  4. Great look! The end of our winter season here is still a few months away, but I am so looking forward to finding a floral statement coat for the spring!
