The phrase “a leopard cannot change its spots” is rather apt when it comes to describing my personal style. As you might have spotted in my New Year’s Fasholutions just a couple of days ago, once again I claimed that the next 12 months would see me experimenting with edgier ensembles. Not giving up my my beloved flirty skirts and girly girly accoutrements of course, that would be madness. Just trying a few less prep-tastic looks a bit more often. Predictably, no sooner had I published this post than I was reaching for the silk jacquard mini, tucking in a cashmere sweater and topping it off with the kind of matching beret usually seen on French school children under the age of nine. But much as I berate my inability to resist the allure of this kind of thing, I do adore it. Challenging yourself with a tricksy trend now and again is fun (or at least I think so) but if it doesn’t make you feel fabulous, why force it? Plus, on this particular occasion Italian accessory label Furla had entrusted me with the task of styling one of their new season bags “my way” so it seemed appropriate to team it with a tried n’ tested outfit formula. On the subject of Furla, they’re back with a vengeance, a seriously covetable collection and a newly revamped flagship store on Regents Street. Check out what they’ve got going on online here.

What personal style staples do YOU keep going back to? Sharing is caring people…

Love Ella. X

4 Thoughts on Look Du Jour: Leopard Spots

  1. […] my previous Look Du Jour post I questioned whether, metaphorically speaking, a leopard could change its sartorial spots. I think […]

    Personally I think although this outfit isn’t my style (… at all, haha) I still love it. What makes it so great is that you seem so comfortable in it and that really shows through in your photographs. Definitely don’t force trends just for the sake of them. Your style is awesome! It’s also quite different from the “typical” fashion post because of how traditional and “preppy” it is but that’s what makes it interesting.
    Loving your blog! 🙂
