FRIDAY STYLE: BABY PINK WATERFALL BLAZER

Phototastic-08_04_2015_98b4bae7-2f48-4a8b-9b93-394589525946

Well it’s been another beautiful week of sunshine and warm temperatures and it looks set to continue next week too; woohoo! Spring is finally here so it’s time to break out the softer colours and lighter layers.

Pala D'oro Baby Pink Waterfall Blazer
This beautiful baby pink waterfall blazer is from the brand Pala D’oro from Carraig Donn. This blazer has a lovely loose and flowy shape as well as a soft crepe texture. Its light enough that I won’t be sweltering if I wear it on summer nights out but it’s warm enough for now as well. The colour is a perfect pastel for this time of year; it really gives a spring time feel. Baby pink is a colour that I’m not that bothered about myself, but I always get loads of compliments on how the colour suits me when I wear it.

H &  M Lace Detail Top
The top is old and it’s from H & M. There are loads of similar style tops in the shops now; there was even a very similar one with long sleeves in Carraig Donn. The high neck and lace details makes this top really pretty, especially paired with this jacket. But this top could also have a festival or boho vibe if it was worn with denim cut off shorts or a floral maxi skirt or anything with fringing.

River Island Black Erin Jegging
The jeans are the Erin Jeggings from River Island. I recently sang their praises in this post so I won’t bang on about them again here, except to say that I still love them.

Nude Courts
The nude shoes are Kate Appleby for Knightsbridge.

Carraig Donn Rose Gold Heart Necklace
The necklace is also from Carraig Donn. I live in a small town with a large Carraig Donn; I love going for a little wander around in there. I very rarely leave empty handed.

Nars Orgasm Illuminator is a beautiful rose gold coloured highlighter. While it is buildable, I like that it blends out to be very sheer. It adds a lovely pearlescent shimmer to the skin. I like to apply it over my foundation with my finger and then blend it out with a duo fibre brush. I apply it in a “C” shape starting under my brow bone and finishing on top of my cheek. The pictures below don’t show the full reality of how pretty it actually is. It’s a really lovely highlighter that makes me want to get my hands on the blush.
