18.12.13 Layering Winter Wools with Lace and Leather

I am wearing: Coat - F&F | Boots - Next | Jumper & Skirt - Persunmall | Bag - Grafea | iPad Case - caseable

As we get colder in the run up to Christmas, keeping warm whilst staying fashionable is top on my priority list. So, to achieve the perfect Winter look I think that the right jacket is key, which makes this coat made from wool with a textured over-sized biker fit and detachable faux shearling collar the perfect outerwear companion. And guess what, you can have it for yourself for a mere £40 from F&F here, amazing right?!

Another great steal in this post are my Zara lookalike lace panel woolen skirt and zip-up sides jumper, which can both be found on Persunmall here and here. I think that this combo looks like it has come straight from the Zara lookbook and the combo only costs £24 for both items - £10 for the skirt and £14 for the jumper - meaning you can get the Zara look for probably less than half the price!

Making an appearance in this post is my new custom designed iPad Mini case c/o caseable - if you 'likey' you can find my customisable iPad mini case here. Or, if you are after a new cover for your laptop, phone or digital device then you must visit their site here where you can choose from a number of designs or create your own: Can you spot the 'LurchHoundLoves' branding on the back of mine?

Adding some leather to the wool and lace mix are my trusty over the knee boots and new leather backpack. A few weeks back you may have noticed on Twitter that I did some test shots with Manchester based luxury leather bag brand Grafea - which you can see on their blog here - and afterwards I was extremely lucky enough to be able to chose a backpack in the colour of my choice, so I went for the gorgeous white 'Bianca' bag here. With so many colours and styles I was spoilt for choice.

Below are a few of my other favourites colours from the Grafea range, so if you are after a quality leather bag that not only screams style but substance, why not treat yourself to one of the below by clicking on your favourite?
