Outfit Post: Black Blazer, Animal Print Shirt and Skinny Jeans

Last week I ordered this classic black blazer from Whistles with the Grazia magazine 25% discount  (see post here) and it arrived the next day!

Double Faced Jersey Jacket £95 Pre Discount


I knew that I'd be keeping it as I'd already tried it on a few weeks ago and had been patiently waiting for the discount code. In fact I like it even more than I remembered - it's made of a thick waffley jersey material, so can look smart if I need it too, but not out of place worn with boyfriend jeans and sneakers for a more dressed down look.

I wore it straightaway to a meeting on Friday:


Blazer - Whistles (above)
Skinny Jeans - Zara AW13
Shoes - New Look AW14
Scarf - Zara SS13
Rucksack - Mint Velvet AW14 here

And I wore it again on Sunday to go to the Harvest Festival:


Blazer - Whistles 
Animal Print Shirt - Maison Scotch at Yard (local boutique)
Jeans - Zara AW13
Ballet Pumps - Topshop AW12

And here's a closer look at the animal print shirt which is new season at Yard. It's a perfect relaxed slim fit and looks super smart under a blazer but also fab at the weekend under a grey sweater:



Have you invested in a classic black blazer? Would love to hear from you...
