Tartan Reefer Jacket and a Houndstooth Cap.

Tartan reefer & a Baker boy Cap, over 40 | Fake Fabulous

This double breasted reefer jacket is one of my all time favourites!
I love the tartan fabric.
The purple lining...

The cosiness of the wool.
The vibrancy of the colours.
The boxy boyish shape.
AND, the fact I've never seen another person wearing the same one!
{This is probably because I bought it from a teenage boys department}

Yes, is buttons up the 'wrong' way, but I don't care!

This reefer is my favourite peps-up-a-plain-outfit, cosy, comfortable, casual jacket.

Today's look came together very easily.
A casual denim shirt, petrol jumper and light grey jeans.
{I'm also wearing a sneaky pair of thermal leggings and matching top underneath these layers, for extra warmth... it is cold here.}

Petrol is such a lovely colour, and one of my favourites.
It clashes beautifully with vibrant shades like orange and purple, but I also think it works really well with more muted tones of denim and grey.
A softer colour palette can be just as enjoyable to wear as a bold one!

This quirky magpie necklace added a sense of fun to my look, and my oxblood boots were the perfect choice of footwear.
They are very comfortable, and work with so many different colours (and styles) of clothes.

The jacket has a yellow stripe running through the pattern, which I am always keen to highlight, so I wore my bag with the neon guitar strap.
Adding a fun baker boy cap, and a silk scarf, finished things off nicely.

This scarf has multicoloured Olive Oyl figures all over it, which seem to go with most things, and it surprisingly warm for such a sheer piece of fabric.
It is probably my favourite scarf, and I've had it for years... not bad for a tangled sale item in TkMax!

This outfit turned out to be jam-packed with some my favourites things...
The Coat.
The Boots.
The Colours.
The Scarf.
The Bag.

Wearing things that you love, and that make you smile, is always a good idea!

Do you have a favourite coat, scarf or bag?
What colour is it?
Why do you like it so much?

Please share your thoughts in the comments.
I love hearing from you.

  2. Fabulous hat! You look great in hats. I loved the 'trilby' style you wore a few weeks ago. Some people never leave the house without lipstick, I never leave the house without a hat!

  6. What a great casual look Samantha, and how very clever of you to find this jacket in the boys department - I would never have thought of that! Your love of this outfit shows with your relaxed body language and quite right as it's so very you. The little finishing touches are great too - the scarf and necklace just add that certain something. Perfect x
