The Orange Blazer



I have admired this blazer for months. I have seen it on countless bloggers and there have been some real life glimpses of it in action. 

ASOS halved the price recently and if that's not the shopping Gods telling me to buy, then I don't know what is!
Ah, I love it. They describe it on site as having a boxy fit and I had always envisaged something very stiff/structured as a result but this is actually a very soft, casual blazer. 

When I did a Google image search for this I saw that people wear it with dresses, skirts or jeans - like I have. It's pretty versatile and adds "something" to really simple separates. 

They do it in grey - with orange piping. This is also in the sale.

Jacket: ASOS - Link!
Top: Mango - Link!
Jeans: Paige

By the way on my lips is one of my all time favourites - By Terry's Flirty Rosy. I recently rescued this from the lipstick box and am reminded by how much I love it. Yes, its neutral but there's a rosy depth to it that is really flattering and sophisticated. Not to mention the fact that the texture is incredible - creamy and non-drying. Definitely recommend for those seeking a neutral lip that flatters and a departure from the ultra-nudes. 

As an aside I retired my nude nudes when taxi drivers in Dubai kept asking me if I was fasting - an assumption made by my corpse lips. True story :) 

See you soon - maybe tomorrow if the blog roll continues?

  8. Ahaha! that's awesome about the taxi drivers ... I recently retired a shirt that used to always prompt the question 'are you feeling ok - you look sick'. Once I realised it was the grey shirt washing me out, I had to let it go! :(
    Glad you found an alternative!

  19. Looking good! How are you liking your hair? Per your first "short chop bob" pic, I cut mine-- I have such a love/hate relationship with it. Now I want extensions for volume and length...oy!
    Do you have a "hair plan", at the moment?

  20. My colleague has this jacket and its a gorgeous, vibrant and as you say, vibrant piece. If she didn't have it, I would certainly be picking up the grey version...especially for £14.00.

    Also your aside about the taxi drivers thinking you were fasting made me LOL!

  21. The blazer looks great on you and the colour is stunning. I'm more of a black or white blazer girl but I could see myself buying this.

  26. What's odd is that I have been eyeing that jacket/blazer forever! I keep adding it to my cart, but then taking it out due to sizing issues. I'm REALLY short... does anyone know if it comes in petite sizing? Love it though, it looks gorgeous on!
