Yellow, Peach and White | Sustainable Fashion

Layered Summer Outfit | Peach, White & Yellow | Fake Fabulous

We don't always get the weather we want, do we?
It may be summer but it's COLD!

The Scottish summer is predictably unpredictable.

Today I'm layering up but keeping things soft and summery.

I'm also keeping my whole look as ethical as possible.
I'm wearing the most sustainable fashion ever.
And you can too...

Layered Summer Outfit | Peach, White & Yellow | Fake Fabulous

The most sustainable fashion on the planet is the items you already own.
Your clothes, re-styled is the most ethical and eco-friendly outfit you'll ever wear.

I'm digging out my yellow trousers AGAIN and styling them with a simple tee and white trainers.
Adding a light-coloured peachy mac and a cheeky grey layer makes more of an interesting colour combination.
A simple and casual outfit without a penny leaving my purse!

It can be hard to keep wearing the same old, same old.
Modern times mean we are spoilt for choice when it comes to fashion and we get bored VERY easily.
BUT...
Many of us are making the effort to shop less, recycle more and re-wear those tired pieces.

{Tales of Zara/ASOS/Nordstrom 'Hauls' leave a sour taste in my mouth.}

With a few tweaks like fun accessories OR simply mixing different colours together, older clothes can seem fresh again.
Simple additions can inject a little life into your look.
Take this belt... unloved in a 50p bin.
Brand new, great quality and SO much fun to wear!

  1. Oh SAM! That belt is fantastic! I want to move to Scotland and follow you around the charity shops, because lady, you find THE BEST things. I love how you style and mix your clothes so brilliantly.

    I am definitely a wear and rewear kind of gal. I don't like to buy anything that I don't know for sure I'll get loads of wear out of for years to come. The older I get, the more I avoid trends in fashion. I just buy what I love and wear it forever.

    1. I agree Lisa!
      That would be LOADS of fun!! :o)
      Especially as we have different colouring and could pick things out fot each other too... double the fun.

      I've certainly stopped buying 'crap' clothes.
      Anything badly made or with too many trend elements in one is a real turn off.
      I'm loving natural fibres and trying to avoid man-made static rubbish.
      Of course I've plenty of manmade fabrics in my wardrobe so I'm still wearing them... and will be until they fall to bits!
      I agree with your "Will I love it forever?" Philosophy!!

  4. I spent the day thrift and consignment shopping with friends and it was just lovely - I so agree that we don't have to constantly be buying new all the time, but if we do, we should shop second-hand for it, and support our local shops. /high horse (hee hee)

    Love this colour combination, Samantha - the peach/yellow is perfect. I love the fun belt too - I'd wear that!

    1. I'd love to try your "Consignment" shops Sheila!
      I often wonder what the differences are between what you have on offer and what I have.
      It would be a fun trip for sure!

  5. I just love it when you come up with yet another interesting way to wear those chartreuse pants! Turns out it's a more versatile color than I'd imagined!
    You peachy trench coat is lovely and the grey layer comes off like a scarf! Such great styling from you ALWAYS Sam!

    1. Thank you Jude!
      I think these trousers work hard.
      Yellow is surprisingly versatile.
      I think only our imagination can hold us back from colour combinations :o)

  7. OMG that belt!!!! And 50p too?!! WOW! I love the outfit, and I love wearing old clothes too. I just wish our charity shops over here were a bit more inviting lol!

    1. Oh Suzy, I'm not sure the charity shops here are particularly "inviting"... :oP.
      They're often full of crap (for want of a better word) and smell a little... or a lot!
      I've been a charity shopper for over 20 years and have honed my skills.
      It should be a qualification BA in Charity shopping! Hahahahaha.
      I'd love to go shopping with you BUT I suspect we'd be drawn to the same things in the same size and things could go crazy!

  9. You totally rock!, I love your yellow pants and the fab color combo you've created, summery colors and interesting layers and accessories!. I think that accessories actually make a difference! and yours are always so stunning!
    Totally agree on re-styling!, it's not only better for our planet (and our budgets too) but also a chance to be creative!.
