Black, White and Orange | Wearing My Favourites (again)!

Orange Coat, Black Coated Jeans & Striped Jumper | Fake Fabulous

Some pieces in our wardrobes are go-to items that, no matter what you buy that's 'new', will always end up being reached for... and probably worn to death!
Old favourites are those pieces we rely on to never let us down.

This outfit has a few of those old favourites for me!

First, my (now pretty old) orange coat....I've worn it to death, yet it still looks like new!
Next my (new, but old!) favourite black and cream lace booties.

{Yep, I'm wearing them ALL of the time. It's getting a bit boring. Not sorry!}

Thirdly, a trusty roll neck.
Roll necks (or polo necks, as I would call them) are a constant feature in my wardrobe and go under anything and everything.

{I challenge you to find an outfit post without me wearing one ­čśŤ
Okay, that's maybe a bit of an exaggeration.... but only a bit of one!}

Finally, this quilted bag that I bought years ago in the Topshop sale.
It was a 'wee extra' at the time but has turned out to be one of my most-used bags.
Funny how things work out.

The rest of the outfit is pretty simple... a striped jumper and a pair of coated jeans.
Easy peasy!

  1. Ooh, how do the coated jeans feel? I've wanted to try them but haven't come across them in my size in a shop.

  2. Those booties are so cute! And as you probably recall, I can totally relate to having a few favourites that we wear to death even when there are newer purchases in our closets!

    1. Yes Eleanna! We all do it don't we?
      Often I reach for the same-old-same-old leaving the "new" behind :oP

  3. Easy peasy AND awesome Samantha! I must tell you that I too am a great lover of turtlenecks. During our cold Minnesota winters I rarely created an outfit without a trusty cozy t-neck!! Recently I've been achieving that same warmth with scarves and I love the way they add so much extra color, fun, texture, and pattern to an outfit.
    You look just gorgeous in your black, white and orange. Unique and always inspiring!
