Marisota SS14 Style
I was recently invited to take part in the Marisota SS14 style challenge. The idea was to try one of the SS14 key items and show you how I would style it.
There were three different items that might be sent, PU Trim Pencil Skirt, Mark Heyes Boucle Biker Jacket and the Truly WOW Panelled Blouse. As I didn't know which one I would be receiving it made for a nice surprise!
On Thursday my parcel arrived and I received the Mark Heyes Boucle Biker Jacket.
First of all let me tell you about how soft this jacket is! Seriously, I have never felt a jacket with such a luxurious feel and that is thanks to the boucle fabric.
I wore the jacket on Sunday for a afternoon trip out to the countryside, there is lots of greenery behind these walls but it was so muddy and wouldn't have made a nice background.
I was a bit nervous about wearing it outside. In the winter you would normally find me in a black, blue or grey coat! I must say it made a nice change to wear a lighter colour and I really felt it worked well with the light jeans, pretty scarf and a cute little hat.
I wore the jacket again for an evening out during the week. I braved the cold and kept the top slightly unzipped, just enough to show off one of my favourite necklaces. Keeping a scarf under the collar meant that if I got too cold I just had to zip it up and wrap my scarf around.
I got a size 22 and it fits really well, especially over the hips. The sleeves are the perfect length, I personally find there is nothing more annoying than sleeves that are too long!
This is a lovely jacket that would be a great addition to any wardrobe, no matter what your style is.
Thank you Marisota!
