NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Style Post: River Island Floral Blazer

This weeks newest clothing crush is my floral blazer I picked up from River Island a few weeks ago. After seeing this on Lilys blog, I knew this would probably end up in my ever growing wardrobe and when I saw it in the flesh I picked it up and legged it for the till - silly in hind sight as no one else seemed overly fussed... I just looked like the words biggest dork!

I won't lie, it's crazy long on me, as are most items I own, but it's perfect for autumn and fits nicely under my quilted jacket. Fingers crossed that this will carry over into spring too! This baby looks best as a statement piece with an all black outfit, think a slouchy black top and leggings for day time. But at night, I think this piece will really shine - black body con dress, black tights, black wedges. It spruces up a rather bland night time look with ease - potential Paris outfit? I think so!

If you fancy picking this up, it retails at around £35, and if you don't want to look like a complete dork in a golumn/smeagle and the ring situation like me (10 points if you can name the film) then you can order it online here.
