I just want to be a sweetheart

Following the sneaky peak on last Tuesday's Photo Diary this morning's post is to show you guys my new floral blazer from Glamorous in all of its glory! Print blazers, along with the matchy-print-short trend which I am nowhere near brave enough for (yet), have been incredibly popular lately and I've found myself thumbing through magazines and bookmarking examples for WEEKS, before I found the perfect one. I love the floral feel to it but it's brighter than you might expect from a vintage-y print.

Sometimes, there's a trend that grabs me and I never seem to do anything about it because I'm worried that I wouldn't be able to make it look 'individual' enough. Of course this goes against all morals of blogging that "we don't follow trends and we wear what we like" etc etc etc, but when availability of clothing is dictated by the brands who are in turn inspired by the shows... it's a sartorial circle which inevitably has some impact on what you wear. So embrace it, guys, but if you want to wear every trend all at once and the magazines are telling you not to - SOD THEM.

Floral blazer - c/o Glamorous
Unicorn t-shirt - Be Frassy
Black skinny jeans - Primark
Platform heels - Matalan

If you'd seen my rambles on twitter last week about whether it was acceptable to wear a bright floral blazer (aka this one) to an interview, well, with an overwhelming YES response I can happily report that it did come along with me, and I managed to bag an internship for when I graduate waeey!* I'm inclined to think it's a lucky jacket. I will be wearing it to play my numbers on the lottery next week.

Glamorous have also got a special bloggy discount code which is valid until next Friday, so to get 20% off remember the code "glamorous20", easy peasy. They've got some really pretty summer dresses in stock at the moment which are perfect for his hot weather especially! 

*I'll be chatting more about my internships and jobs and summer plans more when I graduate - right now I don't want to jinx them!
