Next Best Thing


*How horribly unflattering is this? I don’t quite know how it happened but occasionally I’ll take photos such as this and between one week and the next and outfit can make me look like I’ve lost/gained a stone.. I’m thinking of a  separate post on this subject*

You may remember my posting about this Fluro Boucle jacket from ASOS a couple of weeks ago.. I’d seen it full price and liked it but wasn’t sure I’d wear it. When it went on sale I snapped it up and let you all know about it.. that may have been an unwise move. They oversold my size and several attempts later I’ve had to accept that it wont be mine. I decided to go ahead and order the grey version since I’ll probably get more wear from it anyway and it was actually slightly cheaper – link – plus if the fluro version ever does come back (chances are high) I will know whether to go for it at full price – so far the answer is yes. If any of you managed to get your hands on the orange one I’d love to hear how you like it. 6214

*What I’m Wearing*

Tshirt – Topshop / Jeans – H&M – similar / Jacket – ASOS / Shoes – Converse / Sunglasses – RayBan New Wayfarer / Bag – Rebecca Minkoff MAC – on eBay

I have worn these jeans to death (not that you can tell, right?) and am looking for a pair to replace them, I like the distressed style but I might avoid full on holes this time as they inevitably grow and eventually look totally wrecked. I wish I could find this exact pair again, I do have them in black and they’re still doing well but I don’t wear them as often. This pale wash is a great go-with for the spring colours I’ve been moving back in to my wardrobe so if you have any suggestions for a replacement I’m all ears!

    I love this outfit; it’s something I could see myself wearing minus the distressed jeans then. The combination of the somewhat dressy jacket and the comfy, casual chucks is great to me.

    I feel really guilty, I ordered the orange fluro jacket when you tweeted about it in a 10 and an 8 and got them. I kept the one that fitted best. I love it – if it comes back into stock you should get it. I think with a white vest top and flat sandals it will be perfect for summer.

    Bought both after seeing your post and I love them! I generally wear black or darker colours so I’m amazed at how much I love the orange!

    I saw this blazer on the ASOS website and I must admit it looks so much better on you than on the website! I may have to give it a cheeky purchase now I have seen what it looks like on someone other than the website!

    Thanks!! xxx

    I noticed that Miss Selfridge had a nice pair of ‘distressed’ jeans in the other day. I you have no hope there i think Topshop has a few different pairs in or Asos never fails to have what you are looking for.
