Fur jacket with charcoal skirt

Before I went to the hairdresser (…) I photographed this jacket with my charcoal coloured skirt.
It was cold outside, but the jacket is nice and warm. Which is why I only wear it when it is freezing cold. Especially because it is an indoor jacket.

Sometimes when I wear it and the heating is high up, you can see steam rising up from my neck. My head becomes red and flustered and I regret having the jacket on.

I used to combine it with a lovely faux fur brownish skirt. But that was a long skirt and it didn’t fit me anymore. (Would probably have fitted after I had my waist liposucked, but I already gave it away before I thought of that.)

As the jacket is quite an eye-catcher I chose to put black sturdy boots on and not the cream coloured boots which I also own.

Above: standing underneath the dripping tree…. Getting pretty wet.

Reveiling a bit of leg. Sorry guys.

Till tomorrow

    Wow this is a great outfit, love the jacket and the whole combination specialy with this skirt, I think perhaps the bown skirt would have been to much fur. You have some hidden treasures in your closet. I have no critic today. I am sorry, perfect picture.

      I am shopping in my own closets these days. And indeed there are a number of pieces that I do not wear anymore but deserve a second life. (And so much cheaper than buying new clothes…)

    I have always loved this jacket on you. Looks great with the skirt and boots. Beautiful neckline and short to show your taille.

    And I am to loving my new found waistline… I cannot tell you how I enjoy it. Thanks for leaving a comment Katrien.

    Great jacket! Nothing like fur to keep you warm. People have told me that they are afraid to wear fur for fear of being challenged and harrassed. I must say, I have NEVER had anyone murmur a negative comment on my real fox fur, but when I wore my fake fur, someone did call me an “animal killer.” I thought, for goodness sake, if you’re going to protest wearing fur, at least recognize fur when you see it!Cheers from England,Rosemary from http://www.foreveronthecatwalkoflife.blogspot.com

      hahaha, that is funny. I have to admit though that I never wear real fur. About 18 years ago (OMG!) my stepdaughter asked me whether the red fur edge around my red coat was real. I did not want to lie and said: “I am not sure, but I think it is”. Of course she cried out: “MURDERER” (she was 9 at the time). And I decided there and then I was not going to buy anymore fur. This jacket is the only (rabbit) piece of fur I posses.

    It seems very nice this jacket and skirt outfit with boots and is very interesting. I think it’s a jacket that can be combined with many things, even more casual outfits. The boots are lovely … and leg too. 🙂

      … lovely legs hahaha. LOL. Thank you.And actually I cannot combine this jacket with many things. As it is short I need some volume underneath it around my hips. Perhaps if I were to combine it with a longer top underneath it. On jeans f.i. Have to search for such a top.

    I’m loving this jacket, it’s unusual and a bit different. I think it’s great with the skirt and boots.

      Thanks Aileen. If we weren’t so far apart, you could borrow it from me. Would be nice in your cold country, wouldn’t it?

    This is a good one. How about a black faux fur hat to finish it off? Patski

      I used to have a nice hat in brown faux fur, but I gave that away as I was never wearing it. Hats make my hair go so bad, that I don’t bother. Cannot take it off. (And thanks for the compliment.)

    I am the quilty one because the hat went to me, when I am sitting on my scootmobiel it is very cold in the winter. We were shopping for a hat but couldn’t find one, so Greetje was so kind to give me hers.

    Great jacket, very cool and a bit unusual! I like the whole outfit, and the boots are nice too:)

      Thanks Nanne. I like it that you think I am cool. Who would not want to be cool at my age? LOL

    You are just too darn cute! I think this outfit is gorgeous. I have a real leather shearling jacket, cropped like yours, and it is one of my favorite pieces of clothing. Your jacket is amazing with the long skirt and the tall boots. This is one of your best looks ever. :)USA Suzanne

      It is not easy to wear though. Apart from the fact it is really warm for indoors, it also rides up a lot. I keep pulling it down. But thanks for the compliment.

    This combination enters my top 10 of Greetje outfits right away! Drop dead gorgeous! Very flattering and very 2012/2013.

      Oh dear, never expected that. It is not my favourite but that is perhaps because the jacket rides up so much. It doesn’t wear comfortable.
