WhatLauraWore: Minty Fresh at Work

When I first posted about my Apricot Blazer from Simply Be, it got such a great response.  It was so lovely to read that a lot of you liked it as much as I did and ever since I’ve been eyeing up the same blazer in the colour ‘Menthol’.  A couple of weeks ago, I finally took the plunge and bought it in cheeky order from Simply Be.

The Menthol Blazer is a gorgeous mint green pastel coloured blazer that is perfect for the spring and summer months.  It is fairly structured and made from a heavy jersey, ponte roma material with a stripy lining.  It is relatively light weight but does keep you warm because of the choice of material, sometimes a little too warm on really hot days.   I like to keep my jacket open but it can be fastened with the two large pearlised dome buttons on the front of the jacket.

I’m wearing it here with my peplum vest top from Simply Be that I would also really recommend.  I ordered this at the same time as the blazer as I really wanted to try a peplum top and I was surprised at how good it felt when wearing it.  I’ve kept this look all black so that the mint green of the jacket really stands out.  This is a look that I’ve been wearing quite often for work but it would be equally suited to early evening drinks, a meal or the cinema.  I’d perhaps add a mint green clutch and some sandals though to make it less work appropriate!

    you look lovely in this, Laura. Would you mind me asking what size you are wearing? I always have problems finding the right blazer size for me and we seem to have a very similar body shape. Keep up the good work!
