The pursuit of the perfect mint green blazer.

You may or may not know this, but mint green is my favourite colour. Not just recently, as it has been cropping up a lot lately - but for years, probably ever since I painted my room cream with mint green details. I LOVE it.

So I've been after a blazer in this colour for months now. I've scoured shops, online and offline, and ebay. Nothing's really cut the mustard. Well, apart from a Zara one [sold out] I found on ebay for a ridiculous price. I did make an offer [three times may I add] but was rejected. So on I went with my search.
Then I looked on the New Look website, as a kind of last resort. I rarely buy things from New Look, I'm not even sure why... but I'm glad I looked on the website because I came across the mint green lux twill blazer, and for £24.99 I thought, why not? The only thing I'm not sure of is the fact that it's unlined, but I think I can live with that!

I ordered it last night, ticking the 'pick up from local store' option. So I should be getting it this weekend! I really hope I love it. I really like the lilac coloured version of this blazer, so may have to get that next month too.

Bit of a random post, I know. Needed something to take my mind off the horrible day I have had. 10 hour shift followed by parents evening...oh I love my job!


  1. i love that blazer! might have to have a look in my local new look :)

  2. I really like the blazer! I think it's nice because it's not one of those blazers that feel a bit stiff.. you know what I mean? It looks flimsy, and oh so Summery!x

  3. Such a pretty blazer, Sophie! I've been tempted to snap up something mint green and semi-tailored recently too, I just wish I wasn't so poor. Hope you've managed to relax a little after your ten-hour shift sweet (:
