Checked blazers for autumn

Processed with VSCO with a3 preset

I had the biggest obsession with checked blazers during autumn/winter last year, and I wasn’t sure we were going to be seeing this beautiful piece so popular again this year. Lucky here it is, all over the high street, and I am so excited about it. This checked blazer from Shein is one of my favourite so far (also its only £22!!), I actually sized up so it would fit a lot more oversized, the sizes fit slightly smaller at Shein, so I got a large.

I also think my favourite type of blazer is definitely a double breasted version, they seem to sit so much better on the body, plus I also love them fastened up. Even better if you can find the matching trousers and wear as a suit (I actually think this Shein version has a matching skirt, which I totally missed!). I am wearing this oversized blazer with a black t-shirt dress (which I also sized up in) and my pride and joy, my new Balenciaga Triple S trainers (which are an absolute dream by the way).

The perfect checked blazer & 6 things I do when I feel down

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

First to the world’s most perfect checked blazer!! I wrote in an Instagram post early last week, explaining that I think the checked blazer is the piece of the season, and I really think that’s true. This double breasted checked blazer from Shein is so perfect, the fit is amazing, its over-sized enough just to have the perfect dressed down feel, plus it’s an absolute bargain. If you guys haven’t realised yet I am completely obsessed with these red flared trousers from H&M, they literally go with anything, I also love the flared trousers & trainers look.

So babes, this is what I do when I am feeling a bit crappy, when I want to feel a little better about myself and relax. 1. Organise some shiz, just take 30 minutes/an hour to organise what you need too, lunch for next day/pack your gym bag etc, etc, I know it’s boring but it honestly will mean that you are able to relax so much more knowing you’ve sorted all of the necessary things out. 2. Have a bath, I love a bath, honestly, I love it, is there anything more relaxing than sitting in lovely hot, lovely smelling water? I don’t think so! What I would now like to say is that I read a book while in said bath. I actually don’t….I catch-up on Instagram, my message groups etc, if I get behind this is actually something that stresses me out, so I like to take this time to catch up and get some inspiration (which is always fun).

I trim, pluck and dye them myself and it’s just a little thing that I can do for myself, that makes me feel and look a little better. 4. Ring my Mum, just to hear my lovely Mum speak about her day and what she has been up to, always make me feel so much better. Sometimes we just need to reconnect with family and to have a good old catch-up, because really what’s more important that our family. 5. Watch a film with my fiancé, and have a foot rub, I luckily have the most amazing fiancé who spends probably way too much time rubbing my feet (he’s braver than I am) and I love just snuggling up on the sofa with him and watching a good film & completely turning off. 6. Have an early night, I am a complete advocate on getting as much sleep as possible, and I know if I have a really good sleep the next day I’ll feel amazing.

I know this is just a cropped white t-shirt but I absolutely love it! The twist section at the front of the just makes it for me. I am also really into the smart blazer look with a more casual outfit, and for me this look is perfect.

Lets just appreciate these gorgeous high-waisted jeans from Topshop, I actually have them in a black too, I love them so much! They kind of fit like the old style mom jeans, but with more of a wide leg fit, for me its so much more flattering. Then the checked blazer, this one I bought from Bershka, and I am pretty sure it has sold out, but there are so many on the high street at the minute I will link an option below.

And to the red boots! Have you ever seen something so lovely! I actually have so much serious love for these beautiful creatures. I mean patent red boots with a ring detail! How fabulous!
