OOTD | Houndstooth and Faux Fur

Coat – SheInside | Faux Fur Gilet – via Secret Sales | Houndstooth Jeans – Forever 21 | Necklace – Vivienne Westwood | Boots – Topshop | Betsey Johnson Handbag – Thrifted in New York 

Houndstooth, berry lips and a faux fur gilet… My go to choices when I can’t be bothered getting dressed for uni. I used to hate dressing down. This time last year I was all about white faux fur coats and bright red lips everyday… I didn’t even own a pair of jeans! But who can be bothered with that when you’ve got a reading list the size of a small library to power through each week? 

My SheInside coat is the perfect staple piece for the season. It’s so stylishly cut and just screams out sophistication. I love the PU sleeves which really sets it apart from your standard plain, black coat.

I don’t think my Betsey Johnson bag has been featured on my blog before. I found it for $13 in Buffalo Exchange when I was in New York last Christmas. I came back with Betsey Johnson everything… handbags, an amazing coat and wash bag for under $50. England, you need to catch up with thrift stores. Seriously. 

What do you think of this outfit?

Lydia Rose,
