Improvising...

how to wear pink 40+

This is what happens when you have clothes in two places: you have half an outfit and end up looking as if you got dressed in the dark...

You may remember the tweed jacket from a few weeks ago when I paired it with a hot pink dress. And the top has been featured on the blog, too (I really need to go shopping...).
Anyway, I wanted to see how the jacket would look like teamed with the top, and maybe with jeans...
And there's the problem... as it turn out, all my jeans were unavailable (= in England, these photos were taken in Finland), and now I see that the trousers I'm wearing here are a bit too dark to work with the rest of the outfit. Oh well, that's life: nothing's perfect, and your clothes are always in the wrong country. We'll have to try the jacket with jeans combo another time...

I am wearing:
jacket: Andiata (old) / top; Jigsaw (old) / trousers: marks and Spencer (old) / 
sunglasses: Prada (old) / bag: Chanel / shoes: Clarks (s/s 2014)

What about you, do you ever improvise outfits?

  1. I so admire your ability to live between two different countries, I would be hopeless. The pink is so pretty on you, will look forward to seeing with the lighter pants but I really don't mind the darker ones.

    1. Thanks, Jill. Well, living in two places is relatively simple: it's basically just living out of a suitcase and simplifying your wardrobe as much as possible. And learning to get over the fact that whatever you want to wear on a given day is in your other home...

  2. I actually love this outfit on you. The pant matches the bag and shoes. Beautiful jacket too. xo

  3. I think the jeans would work better too, but that said, this one is not that bad too. Look very well co-ordinated actually

  4. Your Chanel-style jacket is very nice and the colour is perfect in Spring! Living in two places can be exciting ! ( but also a bit complicated for your style! )

    1. Thanks, Dan. Yes, living in two places can get complicated. Although I should be used to it by now...

    1. Thanks, Jessica. I'm quite pale so it's sometimes difficult to get the right shade of a colour, especially pink: too pale and I fade into the background, and too strong and it eats me alive...
