WhatLauraWore: Loving Boohoo Pastels

Remember the Boohoo event I went to before my wedding?  It seems like an age ago but amongst all of the last minute wedding preparations, a parcel arrived with a couple of items that I loved from the event.

The first item I want to share with you is the Lucie Quilted Fabric Zip Through Jacket in Mint.  I love this Boohoo jacket as it is so different to anything else I’ve seen in the plus size stores I normally shop in.  The candy coloured mint green is so perfect for spring and summer and the jacket is light weight too- perfect for the in between weather that we often have in the North East.

The bomber jacket style makes it the perfect casual piece as it has that sports luxe vibe but as it is quilted and quite fitted, you could easily wear it with a more smart ensemble too.  It is available in black, cream and lilac as well as the mint that I have here and there’s some coordinating pieces available too, such as a pencil skirt.  I’d suggest sizing up as I found the sizing a little small on this jacket but it really depends on the fit you’re going for.

I’m wearing it with an equally candy coloured pink daisy tank that I picked up in Wet Seal while I was in Florida, for an added pop of complimentary colour and I’m also wearing a black jersey skater skirt from ASOS which is seriously comfortable and effortlessly girlie to wear.

For accessories, I’ve kept it pretty neutral but feminine with some flower flip flops that they always sell for a couple of pounds in Primark each summer and my Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac Bag in a similar colour called Biscuit.  This is a new bag in my collection but it has very quickly become my most worn piece since I bought it on honeymoon.

When it came to choosing jewellery to wear with this outfit, I knew exactly what I would pick out from my drawer.  My New Look pastel flower necklace is one that I ALWAYS receive compliments on and lots of my friends have tried to go out and buy it but they haven’t been able to find it in the store or online.  It is current season but I’m guessing it has just been a really popular piece.

My earrings are also from New Look but from the concession Roam Jewellery.  They came in a pack of three and I’ve worn them so many times as they’re really easy to wear and help to pull a look together, especially if I’m wearing my hair up.
