Leopard Print Scarves, Leather Jacket and Jeans

Despite living in Queensland and not needing them often, I have three leather jackets and it's always nice when the temperatures drop enough to wear them. I picked up the printed one below from the Asos sale a few years ago. The print is a nice detail but as you can see in the closeup picture it's still subtle enough that it's easy to wear with other prints, like my lovely leopard print scarves.

What I wore:

purple leopard print scarf printed tank leather jacket skinnies ankle boots winter SAHM style | Away From Blue

Mulberry regular Alexa bag in foggy grey | AwayFromTheBlue
Scarf: Sportsgirl animal scarf in violet
TankJeanswest Florence print long line tank (on sale!)
JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
ShoesRMK Chester black ankle boots (on sale!)
BagMulberry regular Alexa bag in foggy grey

Why I wore it:

I loved everything about this outfit and wouldn't change a single thing. You know when you have one of those days where you put something on in the morning, feel great about it and have an absolutely wonderful day and make it to everything on time? It was that amazing kind of day. And that doesn't happen often with two little ones, haha! Really liked the purple scarf with this - thought it was a nice way to add some colour and worked nicely with the lilac bag.

Had a busy morning then lunch with my sister and we spent the rest of the day together.

TeeAtmos & Here Avery marle tee in navy (new purchase, on sale!)
JeansJeanswest 'spoylt' flared jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagMulberry regular Alexa bag in foggy grey

Why I wore it:

As I really liked the leather jacket and leopard print scarf combo above, I tried it again a few days later with a different scarf and slightly different outfit. I like wearing my flares with Converse, they are really practical shoes and perfect for a morning with lots of walking. Went out to the baby and kid expo and was glad I'd picked my Converse as it was much bigger than the one I went to at the start of the year when I was still pregnant. Baby boy stared to get quite unsettled with the crowds so I ended up taking off the jacket so I could babywear easily. I'm not a fan of metal zips near baby's face when I'm using the baby carrier.

First wearing of this tee I bought in June too - a great basic. I'm a fan of the Atmos & Here tees, I have quite a collection of them now. They are soft, slightly stretchy and don't need ironing. Plus they often go on sale which makes them even more attractive!


Last worn: leather jacket (above), blue leopard print scarf, flared jeans, Converse, Mulberry Alexa bag (above). First time I've worn the navy tee as it's a recent purchase.

  3. I love my leather jackets and just fit mack into my cognac one, but it is too warm right now, so I´ll save it for the colder day that will inevitably come.

  14. I really like the pops of color against the leather. In fact, I love leather, when it can be softened up a little. You know? Like adding feminine colors or flare to it? That's my favorite way to wear it.

  15. I love your leather jacket, girlie! I believe I see a pattern around the sleeves!? Such a nice, unique touch! I'm a sucker for anything leopard print, so I'm really loving your scarves. Surprisingly, I have quite a few and haven't worn them this past fall as much as I'd think, you've defiantly inspired me to do so this upcoming season! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great week ahead!

  16. I love the color of your bag, and your scarf! The colors work really well together. I am obsessed with leopard prints. I have several scarves with that print as well!

  17. Oh I love your first outfit so much! That's exactly my go-to outfit for Fall: leather jacket, skinny jeans and ankle boots. Don't you just feel so cool when you wear them? ;) The second outfit is also casual-perfection. Converse sneakers are by far my fave sneakers and I always come back to them no matter how much I love other types of footwear, haha

  20. Summers in the UK aren't much warmer than winter so I totally relate to loving an opportunity to wear a gorgeous leather jacket like this - they're so fun and versatile to dress up. Loving your flares and converse mix too! x
