The Fab 40s Style Faux Fur

Morning ladies, I hope everyone's enjoying the Christmas festivities.

For this month's Fab40s post it was my turn to pick both a theme & our guest blogger so after some thought I decided to pick something that I'm really enjoying wearing this season & that's faux fur.  Plus it also gives me a great excuse to break out a cheeky new purchase - another new gilet, which I just couldn't resist in this stunning navy blue as it's seriously lovely & warm & perfect for teaming with my Clarks over the knee boots.

  1. Hi I've only been following your blog for a few months, and I love your style but you are costing me money, I loved the grey faux fur gilet you wore a few weeks ago and ordered it immediately. I've been patiently waiting for four weeks and it arrived today just before we were going out to a family meal. I wore it and got loads of compliments. I've had my eye on this blue one and have just ordered it. Thank you for your inspiration, look forward to seeing you in the New year. Georgina xx

    1. Hi Georgina I'm so pleased you love the gilet. It's stunning isn't it & looks so much more expensive.....,glad I'm not the only one who has ordered more than one but they're so gorgeous & warm I just couldn't resist. Sorry for taking you down with me ;-)
      Here's to a fabulous 2016.

  2. I love, love, love how utterly classy and chic you are Jane. Every single item you wear looks so effortless. It's like you just exude luxe. I wanna be like that but then my quirk always sneaks in! Haha. Also, black and navy--perfect combo!

    Love, Ann

    1. Oh Ann you're far too kind with your comments but thank you so much.
      I love how you rock your looks & you certainly rocked the faux fur this month.
      Happy New Year my lovely.
      Jane xx

  3. I would so much like to copy this look of yours (they still have those boots in my size.....). But I don't think it is going to look the same on me. So better not. But I love it.

    1. I bet you'd look fab Greetje & not to encourage your or anything ;-) but the boots are super comfy, I could easily live in them, especially if I had them in the different colourways too!
      Jane xx
