A boucle contradiction


boucle top – Asos (ON SALE!)
jean – Abercrombie & Fitch (last seen here)
sandal – Zara (last seen here)
sunglasses – Marks & Spencer
leather bag – Autograph @ Marks & Spencer
watch – c/o Guess, bracelets – various

Hope you all had a great weekend!  Did you all go see the new Batman movie yet?  We did… awesome!

I hopped onto the ASOS SALE last week and was pleased to be able to finally satisfy my boucle cravings.  I’d been after a jacket for a while but to be honest didn’t feel I would get enough wear from a multi-coloured blazer to justify a purchase.  So when I saw this little pretty I snapped her right up (with a couple of other bargains…).  I wore her for work on Friday with a blazer and pumps then switched to sandals for after work drinks.  I love that the airtex back ticks the sporty trend box whilst the front is all crazy colour boucle.  Bit of a contradiction though right?  I mean you’d hardly go do any sport in a wool fronted tee…  but fashion’s rarely sensible is it?!

      white’s quite nice for a change I think – just get some of the stuff you would use for a french manicure tip and use about 3 coats πŸ™‚

    Love this!! I was planning to get the same top too! But size 10 is the smallest size left πŸ™ what size do you wear?

      I have an 8 Nina but it’s quite boxy in shape so I don’t think it would matter if it was a little larger. I am usually an 8 and it fits fine. I think asos do free returns anyway though so you might as well πŸ™‚
