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?

    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.

      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…

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

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

      Thanks. I will try this jacket with jeans at some point, but maybe with a different top…

    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! )

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

      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…
