OOTD – Blanket cape and Fedora

Fedora – River Island
Striped Blanket Cape – River Island
Top – H&M
Trousers – Zara
Boots – River Island

This time of year can be a real nightmare fashion wise, the sun is shining but it is still quite cold. So I’m constantly on the lookout for something warm to wear but in lighter spring like shades.

I spotted this cape on the River Island website in the sale and thought it was the perfect wrap for the unpredictable temperatures, plus the pink and brown tones go perfectly with a lot of items already in my wardrobe.This also includes this fab fedora I got a few weeks back, which I also got from River Island.


I’m a real hat fan and fell in love with the purple blush colour instantly. The hat is a soft felt with a dark brown leather band with a golden buckle. I think this makes it look much more expensive than it is, as well as complementing the shades on the cape.

I paired the hat and cape with this white vest top from H&M, which is plain as I didn’t want to over power the cape,or add to many colours. A light and cool vest is perfect to pop under the cape, if you do find the weather warming up. you can slip out of the cape and enjoy the sun!

To keep in with nude tones I wore these waxed nude coloured jeans from Zara, which make a nice change from my normal blue toned jeans. To finish the look I wore my trusty tan ankle boots also from River Island that I got a good few years ago.


As you can probably tell I have been loving River Island lately. They have some amazing pieces that are not only on trend but look like they could be designer items. What do you wear in the unpredictable weather? What looks have you been loving lately? Let me know all your thoughts by commenting below.

Lots of Love,
