How To Wear A Bright Turquoise Blazer | With Neutrals & A Rock Tee

Turquoise blazer, khaki skinnies
This outfit happened because I needed a reason to wear my turquoise blazer. It's a favourite fair weather piece (oh how I love the colour!) but it dawned on me I hadn't actually worn it this year. Our seasons this year have not been the normal Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn, but rather Winter, Winter, S-U-M-M-E-R, and a sudden Autumn/Winter hybrid. So it’s been either too hot or too cold to wear it, and last weekend, in a last Hurrah to the summer, I thought it was perhaps the last time I’d wear my chunky, strappy sandals too - my fave shoe purchase of 2013.

The skinnies are coming out in full force now - they were relegated to the back of the wardrobe during the freakish heatwave we had. Plus my snakeskin bag has been used nearly every day since I got it a few weeks ago; olive is just a great neutral, it really does seem to go with anything. The overall neutrals of the outfit are lifted by that brilliant turquoise colour, so I shall be loathe to pack it away for the winter!

How about you - what are you sad about packing away for the summer? Any favourite summer pieces?

  3. OMG, you are wearing Blondie - she is the very best. Love your bright blazer. xox

  4. Thanks, you just inspired me for tomorrow's outfit. I have a kermit green jacket. And skinnies (so comfortable and soooo good for me). Hmmm.. don't have a T-shirt. Ah... I have a faux leather skinny tie. I am sure I can make something of this.
    All thanks to you.

  5. Fantastic look Catherine! I like your choice of colours and also, your hairstyle looks lovely :)



  6. Love the bright blazer and Blondie tee and pairing them with the neutral skinnies is spot on.
    Debbie :)

  7. Hiii! I've just discovered your blog :) You have a very nice style! Following u on GFC and FB!
    Check out my blog :)

  8. I've found your blog via Annette Lady of Style and it's fun to discover your great content. Your outfit today is very colorful and I do not know if I would have the courage to wear it so. But your blazer is awesome and also the shoes. Nice Sunday

  9. That blazer really makes the outfit pop! I love those colors on you!

  10. You had me at that Blondie tee. One of my favorite bands! This whole outfit is fantastic.

  11. I love that blazer and I used to shop at LaRedoute all the time but had sort of forgotten about it in the last few years. Great reminder! I have a turquoise tote bag that I love to use. The leather is super soft and supple but I seemed to have forgotten it this summer.

  12. LOVE that blazer!! It looks amazing with those olive colored pants!!

  13. Great outfit! I love it all. But I really love your hair! : )


  14. I love this look! It's unexpected, but not crazy. I think you balanced the brightness of that blazer perfectly. And your hair is gorgeous, as always. :)

  15. The turquoise really pops against that neutral palette!

  16. Such a fun outfit! You've styled the blue blazer rather well!
