Pretty in Pink

Tuesday, 29 April 2014



So of course my first outfit of the week had to feature my pink coat! After posting my guide to the perfect leather jacket on Sunday I found out that the leather jacket has already sold out online which is crazy, so if you have a store near you have a look in store and you might be lucky. Anyway, with a pink jacket it can be quite hard to style, you don't want to have a colour overload. So here's how I styled my pink jacket...

I think the easiest colours to go for to compliment a pastel pink jacket are the neutrals: creams and whites as well as black of course. I went for this cropped beige jumper, it's ribbed and quite a warm jumper but the weather has been so weird lately that it has been a bit cold. As far as I'm concerned if it's cropped it doesn't really count as a winter piece haha. I love this jumper because the sleeves are quite long so I've had to fold them over but I really like the way it looks, it's a nice little touch.

I went for a pair of high waisted jeans in black - I have a dark denim pair too but I just don't seem to get enough use out of them for some reason, I always go back to black, although the colour on these is already fading *sob*. Both of my Joni jeans are too short in length. It's so annoying, they're the usual length I buy but for some reason too short so I roll them up pretending that's the desired effect even though it isn't. So I rolled them up and went for my favourite black boots.

Accessory wise I went for silver because a lot of the detailing on my boots, bag and leather jacket are silver. I found this cute clutch bag in Primark which I really like! I love leopard print, so I use any excuse to incorporate the print in my looks. I really want to get my hands on a pair of leopard print heels but haven't found the right print (which must sound weird but I find some leopard print looks tacky - it needs to be done right).

    1. I initially wanted a blue but couldn't find a cheaper version, now I'm glad I ended up with a pink one though because it's so different to all the others I already have. That's super sweet, thank you! X

    1. Thank you! Completely agree, that's why I wanted a baby blue one at first but I'm really loving it at the moment, it's so cool to wear pastel pink and get away with it! X
