Jumping for joy with my new bargain-ilicous jacket.....

Well, hello June! It feels like only yesterday we were munching on mince pies, laughing hysterically at Home Alone and blaring the christmas tunes but alas, it is June 1st and we're almost halfway through the year - Crazy! Although it doesn't quite feel like June with this wintery weather we're having. I'd like to know where I can order some blue skies with a side of sunshine?

A couple of months ago I spotted this jacket in H&M. I tried it on, I fell in love and then I cried when I saw the price tag. I hmmed and I ahhed but eventually I found myself putting it back on the rails. (heartbroken, might I add ;-)) I mean it's really nice and all, but I just felt that it wasn't worth €50. But the story didn't end there - I couldn't stop thinking about it! "Nothing haunts us more than the things we didn't buy" and that was certainly true. Fast forward a couple weeks and it was reduced to €20 which made me one happy girl! What I love most about it is the contrast of colours - The colours compliment each other well and the pops of light and dark pink make it stand out for Summer. It has a gorgeous quilted material and the fit is perfect. I chose to pair it with this nude pink dress which I wore to a wedding years ago. I love the frilly detail on the front (what would you call that? I've no idea! Let's just go with 'frilly detail' - Probably inaccurate but whatever ;-)) and it makes me want to twirl around all day long!

  1. Ah this is such a lovely post, i am definitely following!

  2. I remember seeing this in H&M. That's the great thing about H&M's jackets/blazers, if you wait a while typically they go on sale pretty quick for great prices. I've lucked out on a few separate occasions and caught some of their $50+ jackets marked down.

    I wear so many casuals that statement jackets are great for adding detail. Have you looked at ASOS's jackets?


    1. I was delighted when it was reduced! I'll definitely wait for them to come down in future! I agree that adding a statement jacket to an outfit completely transforms the whole look! I only own the one but will definitely be buying a couple more. No, I haven't tried Asos. I must have a look! Thanks for that x

  3. I love it when that happens! It's like the shopping gods are looking down on you... The jacket is gorgeous! Xx
