Today is a good day. 

What makes it better? 
This fox hat.

It was a weekend purchase at H&M and I have developed an unhealthy obsession with it. I've since bought a fox printed smock (look out for its appearance on here soon!) and I've been eating my almonds out of my fox printed snack box. It may be another one of my phases but it's an animal that I'm keen to welcome into my winter wardrobe. Just step riiiight in. 

I kept the outfit monochrome to avoid this foxy hat being overshadowed by obnoxiously colourful pieces so out came a striped top and my leather contrast sleeve coat from Zara. Without the headwear, it's a very classic pairing with a nod to Parisian chic with a side order of androgynous styling. Combine it with a foxy hat? Well, that's a whole other story. Whilst I normally favour a polished and 'preppy' look - it can sometimes look a little boring and monotonous. Add in an unexpected accessory and voila! It makes it fun. If you find that your day-to-day outfits are following a repetitive routine, throw in something unpredictable to mix it up.

P.S. Is a fox a feline or a canine? I did a quick Google search and was presented with conflicting answers. They're meant to be related to wolves, dingos and coyotes but their features seem more cat-like to me. Foxy feline?
