The Hot Pink Blazer


About this look...
I’ve been dying to get my hands on a hot pink blazer since last summer. I was so thrilled to find a vintage DVF one on a thrifting adventure that I convinced myself it fit. But when I got home I could no longer deny that it was too big. Sadly, I posted it on Poshmark (where it’s still for sale if you’re interested!) and started the hunt once more.

After a few months of fruitless searching, H&M made my year by stocking my local store with a variety of colorful blazer. I happily plucked a pink one of their racks and brought it home with me. As usual, my biggest problem was deciding how to wear it first! I finally landed on a simple ensemble consisting of my favorite pair of jeans and an orange and white striped tee! My neglected nude pumps and clutch finished off the ensemble perfectly!

Don't you love finding something you've been searching for? This hot pink number is definitely worthy of a victory dance, so I hope you broke it down in H&M! :) Love how you styled it!

I can't lie, I probably did a little bit of a skip and a hop. ;)

I have been on the hunt for a hot pink blazer tooooo! And it is funny because I keep trying to convince myself that your DVF one will fit me too, but I think it may be too big also- SHUCKS! But I just scored a hot pink leather blazer that I can't wait to receive!

Yay Pink Sistas!! Can't wait to finally meet youuuu!!

Ooo, love it. I found one at a thrift store, too, but haven't rocked it yet. Now I have some ideas how to do so after seeing you rock yours- yay!  Mine has a slightly fuzzier fabric,though, so hopefully it won't be too itchy.

LOVE the brightness of this pink blazer! I've been wanting one for my ever growing collection of blazers as well but just haven't found the one yet. I'll have to check H&M next time.

So glad you finally got your pink blazer- I love finding items I've been searching for for a long time. It's always so satisfying :) I was on the hunt for a perfect trenchcoat for 5 years, and I'm thrilled I held out until I found mine.
