pretty pink pastel



I'm a sucker for pastels. I've waited a very, very long time for a perfect pretty pink blazer and passed up so many others. I practically lunged for this when I spotted it in Zara and luck must have been with me when it was the last xs. The material is lightweight, very comfortable, and a bit stretchy. The most important aspect is the fitted cut that's so prominently characteristic of all Zara blazers. I love that it's wearable to work because the color is still soft and not egregiously off-putting to more conservative professionals. You can slip this blazer on over darks or lights and instantly look brighter. I'm staring at the product page trying to hold back the temptation of checking out with the mint color...

blazer: Zara
blouse: Sway
pants: Zara (similar)
shoes: Zara
(my obsession is not that obvious, right?)

  11. I have been dying to get a new blazer and you have inspired me to head to my local Zara (fortunately there is one not too far away from where I work!) to pick one up! Not sure if I am brave enough to go pink, but I think this one looks great on you, and I agree, it is conservative enough to be acceptable at work, too!
