The tweed/boucle Monty jacket


Monty jacket - Isabel Marant
Basic white tee - Gap
Jeans - Citizens of Humanity
Nude shoes - Christian Louboutin

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw me trying on the Momo jacket in grey/pink and the Monty jacket in burgundy. Although apparently similar, the cut of the two jackets is very different. I had my eye on the Momo but after trying it I didn't like it. It was too short, the shoulder pads were too big for my already too broad shoulders and the zipper didn't feel right. Then I tried out the Monty, a jacket much more appropriate for my body type. But the store (Icon) only had it in burgundy and I hesitated. I hesitated so much that it sold out before I made up my mind. Anyway, I still managed to find the last one in my size in another store (Vert Chasseur) in the color that I was initially going for, grey/pink. I'm a happy laaaaady !!

This jacket confirms that my obsession for tweed/boucle jackets continues, and oops, I'm already thinking about my next victim...

How about you, have you given in to the tweed/boucle jacket trend ?

  1. No - it's only a matter of time. Still looking :o)

    Your jacket looks lovely especially paired with the white which I wouldn't have thought of as a first choice but it works well.

    I'm in boots and rain jackets - it looks better where you are.

  3. Moi aussi j'ai préféré la Monty à la Momo. Mais je l'ai prise dans l'autre couleur. Une très jolie coup effectivement (les épaulettes de la Momo, ça ne m'allait pas du tout).

  7. Salut Marta !

    J'ai aussi hésité et suis passée à côté de tout. J'en ai trouvé un sur E-bay, mais il paraît que la Monty taille petit ?
    Tu as pris quelle taille ?
    Merci beaucoup ! :)
