My weekend flew by and now I’m desperately trying to make up for lost time… I guess that’s what happens when it’s time spent with some of my New York favorites!
Valentine’s Day is just days away and there are so many things I want to share! While it might not be obvious to anyone but me yet (since there’s only 1 post mtd, I’m sorry!), I’m aiming to stick with a pink-ish theme of sorts. At least for the next few posts so bear with me! Grr :D
I present to you my new favorite blazer. It’s pink! It’s gorgeous…
And it’s… from H&M. What?!
Secret’s out. H&M has a surprisingly great selection of business-casual wear that looks great, and won’t break the bank. I’ve been looking for a powder pink blazer for some time now, and (while this is more of a peachy/fleshy pink) I couldn’t resist when I saw this one chillin’ on the store hanger waiting to be swept up.
I am a huge fan of how well it frames the waist. The blazer is tapered; the cinch-est part of which hits right at the small of the waist, and then softly loosens to drape over the hips. The lapel features a long and soft edge. The absence of sharp corners and edges that are found on more traditional business blazers gives it a more casual and approachable feel.
It’s easily dressed up or down, but since it’s a blazer you’ll feel pressed and polished regardless of how its worn! I paired it with a neutral, pastel-y palate with a fun and chunky faux pearl necklace, a white contemporary-lace top, suede booties, and a pair of comfy jeans to capture a more relaxed and casual look. Perfect for laid-back Valentine’s Day plans, or anything really!
I’m already excitedly thinking of different ways to wear this jacket—what options and colors would you pair it with?
H&M Pink Blazer (in stores but strange that it’s not listed online), Divided Lace Tank (alternative, on sale), Minicci Faux Pearl Necklace (Payless stores), AEO Skinny Jeans (bogo 50%), Dexflex Ankle Boot (sale)
Oh, and here’s a sneak peak of the next post… Come back soon!
