Why Blazers Are My New Best Friend. {Ft. NEXT}

Blazers have really become my new best friend. It's hard to think about that as the snow falls down around us but in the last month I have had plenty of blazer days. 
The thing is, when you are a bit lost in the sea of "what to wear" owning a few good blazers will give you instant outfits that will carry you through a few all weather days. For me though, it isn't always about the blazer. Really it's about the good basics that you pair with it and that will never let you down. A white tee and jeans is the ultimate combo for wearing any kind of blazer with. Honestly, this is what you need to give you the basic formula for easy dressing. 

I know for us women denim is the hardest thing to be satisfied with. I know. I spend my life looking at jeans and as I am in them almost every day I have found that there really is a big need for getting jeans that fit and wear well. Most of my jeans nowadays are from NEXT. There are a few exceptions but when it comes to fashion jeans for a good price, I can guarantee next is where I will go. I remember my love for next jeans developing just after I had Etta. At 26 and with two kids, a boy and a girl, I found myself shopping in NEXT quite a bit. It suited me, the Lincoln store was spacious and outside of the city so heading there with a double buggy to kill some time was what I loved to do. It was in NEXT that I first got my body confidence back after having a baby. And (this is no lie) I remember the first pair of size 10 jeans I got back in to whilst in their changing rooms and squealing a bit for joy. If you have had children you may know that feeling. Post pregnancy and just touching on the edge of getting back to "normal". It is a great feeling and one which actually meant I only really got my jeans from there for a long while. Nowadays there is so much choice but I do usually say 'buy cheap, buy twice' so for me, quality comes with spending that bit more. What is great about NEXT though is they are a really fair price and they last. I am desperate to get last summer's wide leg jeans back out, so looking forward to that, I think I have 4 pairs in 4 different colours, I loved them so!!

Back to today's thoughts though and for me, good denim, a pretty white tee and a nice clean cut blazer lends itself to me feeling like I tried even though the 3 items and actually ones which need no thought in putting together. Teamed with some fashionable loafers in a nude pink colour and this (much coveted) basket weave bag, this outfit will see me from February through to spring and beyond.

How easy.

  1. I believe there is nothing better no matter your size than good staples that you can then dress up.
