The Navy Blazer

 
T-Shirt, Boden available here £14 / Jeans, Zara / Shoes, Bloch

Last weekend N had two parties to attend and this is what I wore to the one on Saturday, a lovely spring day but quite crisp so I needed a jacket and scarf. The navy blazer is an old one from Zara, it is short, nipped in waist with bracelet length sleeves but I am not entirely happy with the fit plus it's had its day slightly. 


I much prefer the more blazer style of the ones below.........

I do want a navy blazer as I think navy is more versatile than black ( plus I have my black jigsaw one that I am happy with )
But I had to include this fab image of Emmanuelle Alt in a black blazer - Great Outfit!

So what navy jackets have caught my eye.......




I did have the J.Crew one earmarked but looking at the pictures on Net-a-Porter I think that may be too short like my Zara one ........ best hope I win the lotto for the Stella! However, the Boden one is looking appealing in the mid season sale.......

As ever thanks for reading and your comments,

Annmarie xx

  7. I really like your style, mine is quite similar so your blog is great for outfit ideas for me! I found some great red leather and suede ballets pumps from m&s, really reasonable too. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Aahh thank you! Glad you find some inspiration from my blog. I think the shoes you got I picked them in my Red ballet shoe picks, I am loving my Red ones too they just give the Breton and jeans outfit a little pop. x

    2. You're right those were the ones. The cheaper m&s don't come in half sizes so although cute were no good for me. Very happy with the ones I got!

    Hello, have you seen the Whistles Lena jacket in navy. It's looks like it might be a bit short but is a reasonable price especially given John Lewis are doing 20% off today.

    No problem Anne Marie, just tried it on and I didn't like the jersey at all. Keeping my eye out for another though....

    1. I have a grey jersey one and I must admit it doesn't sit well - I am hopefully going to Spain with work in April and I will go to Massimo Dutti they normally have great blazers and are normally a better quality to their big sister Zara.......I will keep you all updated. xx
