Something drew me to this bright pink blazer.

I don’t usually wear such bright colours and I probably shouldn’t have bought this but the moment I picked it up from the rails of Topshop, my brain went through with all the things I could wear it with. Of course, the “fantasy wardrobe” in my head doesn’t exist and the things in my real wardrobe doesn’t actually go with what is now the brightest item of clothing I own!

It is a difficult one to style and the fact that it doesn’t have lapels doesn’t help. I actually planned on taking it back but I remembered that I had this lace blouse* from Ravi Famous. I love this blouse and have worn it loads but the sleeves are slightly too long – and I’ve already got really long arms! I have to wear it with the sleeves rolled up which makes me feel like a child!

Androgyny was a huge trend last year, but not so much this year. Generally, I’m not all that bothered about trends in the sense that I wouldn’t throw things out just because it’s “not in fashion” or scramble to the shops to buy things to update my wardrobe every “season”.

Classic styles such as androgyny are timeless anyway, and can be worn whenever you want. This outfit is a sort of ironic androgyny because I’ve have put a feminine twist on a masculine trend and it’s all hot pink instead of usual monochrome.

On a different note, I think this may the first time I’ve worn jeans in a year and this may be my first outfit post where I’m wearing jeans! I lost my other pair of black skinnies ones ages ago and my other pairs have faded from washing so they are in a horrible shoddy condition! Until now, I couldn’t be bothered to buy another pair because I feel like I’ve spent far too much on jeans that don’t last, and they’re so expensive and the colour fades so much even after one wash! It is good to back in trousers though, I might even buy another.

  1. I really like the clashing of masculine and feminine here,it's a really unique take on androgyny and works so well. In fact, I think it makes it a more wearable trend, as lots of people feel that they can't pull it off as is.
    I do exactly the same thing when I buy something new, imagining all the things I could wea it with but don't actually have! It's annoying when you get something home and then can't find a way to wear it with what you've got!

  5. Love this look it's so cute though as well! Maybe because of the bow. Absolutely love the lace shirt…I normally have to roll my sleeves up with most shirts :'( xx

  6. I think that is definitely your color! You should get MORE stuff in that color instead of returning it! I agree with you on the jeans. They fade so much ugh. Who needs them??

  9. Oh yes, I don't think I'm someone who is too trend focused either, I like to have pieces that I am likely to get more wear out of! I love the blazer you have on! 😀
