Scotch & Soda Leopard Print Shacket + Style With a Smile Link Up

October 5, 2021

It’s feeling very autumnal here now so it’s time to start wearing boots and layering up. Although it’s not exactly cold, it is windy which makes it feel cool. This is the ideal time to wear a shacket – a cross between a shirt and a shacket. I actually planned to wear this Scotch and Soda leopard print shacket for another post, but I have a stinking cold and didn’t have another set of photos in the bag. I really didn’t feel like getting dressed up yesterday and today to be honest. So, I will revert to plan B for the post I’d planned this outfit for!

The hat plays on the safari vibe, although the only four-legged creatures to be found here are cats!

I first featured this safari shirt/shacket just over a year ago. Isobel joined me in that post and it’s incredible to see how much she’s grown in that time! I’ve paired the shirt with dark jeans again, but I’ve switched ankle boots for long ones and the big bag for a smaller one. The hat plays on the safari vibe, although the only four-legged creatures to be found here are cats! I first bought this hat in black from Zara in the Galeries Lafayette in Paris. I loved it so much I went back to buy this colour the next day and it had already sold out. Luckily I found one in Manchester when I got back. I love fedoras and have about six in different colours!

What’s your favourite style of hat? Is it starting to feel autumnal in your part of the world?

    Emma, you look good in any kind of hat, safari or otherwise! LOVE that leopard shacket. I’m doing a shacket post this week, too! Such a big trend. Our weather does feel fall-like but it’s still in the 70s during the day and 60s at night. Enjoy the rest of your week and feel better.

    xx Darlene

  3. You are fabulous in this leopard Shacket..those are all the rage here in the states too!

    Sounds like your weather is a LOT like the PNW – Seattle where I just moved from. I miss it terribly, but don t miss the gloomy rain. The scenery here in Las Vegas is so ugly tho…lol


    • Emma Peach says:

      Thank you Valerie! The PNW looks beautiful – I follow a few Instagrammers from that part of the world. I’ve never been to Vegas but have friends who love it there!

    Emma, cool look. The hat sets it off quite nicely. The weather in my area is definitely starting to feel autumnal as we had a pretty spectacular thunderstorm yesterday. We were so surprised by it that it took us a while to figure out what the rumbling sound was that we’d begun to hear at around dinner time.


    • Emma Peach says:

      Thanks Rena! We had some thunder too bizarrely and I thought it was someone moving the wheelie bins outside! It was only when I saw lightning that I realised what the sound was!

    Loving this safari-inspired look! It reminds me of Banana Republic, before Gap bought (and ruined) it 😉

    I always regret not having a shacket at this time of year! Nice safari look – be careful of the cats!

    • Emma Peach says:

      Thanks Gail! Shackets are very useful at this time of year. We have a water pistol to ward off the neighbour’s cat that likes to use my garden as a toilet!

  9. Suzy Turner says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit, Emma!! I would wear it all in a heartbeat.
    So sorry you’ve got a stinking cold. I can empathize with you coz I’ve got one too bleurgh!
    Hope you feel better quickly.
    Suzy xx

  10. Emma I’m so sorry you have a stinker of a cold… I’m just waiting for mine, it’s about a year since I last had a cold and I can’t believe I haven’t had one yet!!

    Love the leopard shacket, it’s soooooo good with jeans and boots. You’ve reminded me of a similar pair of Duo boots I have from years ago that I really should wear more often. I’m doing my summer/winter wardrobe swapover this week so I’ll be sure to dig them out!

    Thanks for hosting my lovely,

    Catherine x

  15. Anna Marcus says:

    Love your leopard print shaket, Emma. All the other parts look great too

  16. Give me leopard on anything! And this shacket looks fantastic on you! xx

  17. Emma, this is such a cool shacket. I love the belted style on you and the leopard print is really great. I also like all the little subtle hints of other prints on your bag and hat. I love fedoras but I only have one fedora for summer. I should look for some fall fedoras. But this is the time of year I usually start wearing my wool berets and knit beanies.


  18. Gemma says:

    This is such a nice outfit! the shacked looks gorgeous on you!
