Karl Lagerfeld Vibes • Edgy Leather Spring Outfit

Leather skirt and ruffle blouse | Fake Fabulous | Spring Outfit

What a relief to have a milder day... and NO RAIN!!!
Waterproof jackets were hung to dry.
Heavy coats have been given the day off.
Brilliant!

Leather skirt and ruffle blouse | Fake Fabulous | Spring Outfit

This outfit put me in mind of the iconic Karl Lagerfeld.
I love this vintage blouse and my newly Charity-shopped jacket.
It's a wool blazer, so surprisingly warm.

{It may be milder but it's certainly NOT mild!}

I (of course) have a thermal base layer and brushed thermal tights under this outfit.
The time for ditching thermals is a long way away!

This is a simple outfit.

  • White shirt.
  • Blazer.
  • Skirt.
  • Boots.

BUT...
Because each element has a little personality the overall look feels edgier than it should on paper.

I loved wearing this outfit.
I felt fierce but comfortable and very "me"... is that not the best combination?

COTTON SHIRT: Vintage (charity shopped)
WOOL BLAZER: Armarni (secondhand)
PLEATHER SKIRT: Primark
LEATHER BOOTS: Older than a very old thing
BAG: H&M

It was SO windy my hair was going wild, but I kind of like it like that!

Am I the only person who loves big, puffy and even fuzzy hair?

  1. You look fabulous! I love this outfit, and the blazer is amazing. It is so nice to have some milder days, isn't it. We are looking forward to a milder week this coming week here on the Black Sea. We have already had quite a few. In general our winter this year has been milder. I know you guys have had a ton of grotty weather :(. I saw my first Spring butterfly last week, neon yellow, and the plum tree outside my bedroom window is blossoming. Lise

    1. Awww Lise, how lovely!
      The first butterfly is always a delight... As is the snowdrops and daffodils peeping trough.
      It's be wet and horrible here for too long.... Hopefully some mild and dry weather will be heading our way soon. Xxx
