You may not be a colour lover, but nothing brightens your day more than a bright jacket, does it?! That psychological feeling is something that I always try to promote to people and I believe it 100% contributes to how your day is going to go and how your mood will be from the offset. The other day I was on the lookout for a pink blazer (for me, pink = cutesy and happy), and it just so happens that on this day ASOS had a double points day, so I hunted around the site for the perfect blazer. To be honest, they had SO many options, and if you follow me on Instagram you would’ve seen the options on my stories, but alas I came to one perfect pale-but-not-too-pale, bright-but-not-too-bright pink beauty.
When it arrived it was just what I was looking for, and here I am styling it up for the ideal spring day outfit. It was verrrry windy when I took these snaps so try and ignore the bedraggled hair, but I’m all over the colours I’ve mixed together!
Isn’t it perfect?!
I like a blazer to be slightly longline, and I hate it if they don’t have a button for me to do them up! This one has slightly padded shoulders but nothing too 80’s, and the fit is just right – I got a size 10 which is my normal ASOS size if that helps! The price… £40. I personally think that’s an absolute bargain for something which is fully lined, good quality AND has pockets.
Although the blazer is the key item in this outfit, do you recognise the skirt? I bought it from Topshop last year and featured it in this outfit post (throwback alert), but the skirt has come back online for this season so you can snap it up again! It’s actually one of my favourite ever skirts and the pink blossoms go so well with the blazer. I was praying it still fit me and uhhhh the happiness I felt when the zip actually did up, LOL.
