Red Jacket


Sorry for the delay in posting! It has been so hot here that all I've wanted to do is sit around and eat ice lollies. Its nice having lots of sunshine but the heat is just too much! How is everyone else in England coping with the heatwave?

I thought I'd share with you an amazing red tuxedo jacket I found in a charity shop recently (£3.50). It reminds me a bit of circuses. Its a great shape for me, because I tend to find that this season's blazers just swamp me a bit. I'm not sure if I'd have confidence to wear it out though - it's just a bit bright!

I toned it down with a simple little black dress from Topshop and my gold necklace.

Vintage Blazer - Dorothy Perkins (charity shop)
Black tunic dress - Topshop

I can't stand the heat because I've got an awful cold at the moment and the weather's making it 10x worse! I thrifted a similar jacket not long back, what a coincidence. Love how you've styled it, definitely wear it out!

Hi Sadie! I stumbled across your blog today and i'm very glad I did - it's great!
I know it's weird when "real life" people read your blog, so i'll keep this short, but oh my goodness, we have to go charity shopping together!
I NEVER find anything decent in charity shops here, where do you go?
