My Ongoing Faux Fur Obsession

Guys, I am so tired. I had a friend visit this past weekend, I woke up at 4am yesterday and I couldn't fall back asleep. I had the opportunity to have a quiet Monday night to myself, but I blew it. I went to another Panthers football game on a whim, so instead of working out and going to bed early, I froze my tush off in the nosebleeds of the Panthers stadium. 

Like literally, froze. I completely underestimated how cold it was going to be, and opted for a thin sweater underneath my jersey and a Barbour coat. No gloves, no substantial layers. 

I will learn from my mistakes. I don't think I'm ever going to be warm again.

~perfect segway to the theme of today's post~

Faux fur coats are warm. 

Barbour coats are not.

I need a faux fur coat.

Three general categories of faux fur jackets really appeal to me. The first, leopard print.

Because of course.

The tricky thing is, leopard print coats can look really trashy really easily. You have to pay strict attention to material, size of the print, and the cut of the coat. I have seen this H&M faux fur coat in person, and I love the print and the material, but I really like the idea of a collar paired with anything faux fur. So, this ASOS leopard coat fits more in line with my vision, but seeing it in person is a whole other situation.

So much effort to look so extra.

The second faux fur category is PINK. Light pink, to be specific, literally millennial pink. I am OBSESSED with this Topshop version. OBSESSED. It's boujee af, let's be real. I like how it's cropped and big and soooo ridiculous. 

This coat is my goal.

I also love the Forever 21 faux fur pink coat - it's a little bit cozier and a little bit longer. For cost effective faux fur items, F21, Target, and H&M have a killer selection.

My last category is more broad - whiteish, tannish, creamish faux fur jackets. Exhibit A is this short coat from Louise Paris. It's v similar to my Topshop fave. Exhibit B is a little bit more of a stretch, but I had to include it because I love it so much. It's a Kensie Teddy Bear Faux Fur Coat. It's SO COZY but so luxurious. It's essentially the Snuggle Bear in clothing form.

I have also included a ton of different options in the widget below - check them out!
