I've been wearing my animal print coat a lot this week. I bought this from Zara a few years ago when I was in Brussels. At the time I nearly purchased a big faux fur version from Topshop, but I was talked out of it by a friend who insisted it would only be worn for one season. Well C, just to let you know, this one is in it's 3rd season and I still love it! I have worn it less recently as I've been wearing my grey FCUK coat but this week fancied something with a little more 'va va voom'! So I dressed it down with obligatory Uggs and even had a hoody stuck out of it (hair hiding it in these pictures!). Animal print is either a love or hate, personally, I love it (much to my husbands dislike) and I won't stop wearing it!

|Blimey I didn't realise my Uggs made my feet look like flippers! Oh well, only the school run!|
Here are some of my favourite animal prints that are around now. Don't over do it with a print like this, team with a separate that is plain, or if a dress, keep jewellery simple and minimal. Make it look too loud and people will see you before the print, that is not what you want to achieve!

And on my wish list this week - Zara's parka. I'm on the look out for something a little more casual than my trench for when it warms up and I love the leather combination on the sleeve. It makes it a little different to a plain parka. My only reserve is that the arm's aren't real leather. I would have to see it in the flesh to warrant spending that much on a coat with fake leather on! For a cheaper version, Tesco have one for £28, follow this link.
