I still associate blazers with work but since I found jersey jackets, I'm finding they're great for making a pair of jeans and a t-shirt look just a bit smarter, but not so smart that you feel overdressed on the school run. My latest addition is this breton striped one from Gray & Osbourn.
Betty Barclay Jacquard Stripe Jacket - c/o Gray & Osborn

Boyfriend Jeans - Gap
Navy Pumps - Anna Field @ Zalando
Necklace - A21 charity pendant as featured in this post
Can you believe this is Betty Barclay? I actually went to see the BB range in a local boutique to make sure it was definitely part of the collection...and it is...as are some truly granny-tastic striped tops and navy slacks that were styled with it in the shop I visited. Proof that you can't discount mature brands - it's all about how you style them.
Now I've worn this a few times over the past month or so with grey but I was keen to try it with the coral accent colour so my H&M t-shirt I bought over Easter turned out to be a perfect match...
I've said it before about these jackets - they're so easy to wear all day long. I tend to put this on in the morning and I don't take it off all day. Great on these cooler days at the moment.
If the navy with coral isn't your style, Gray & Osbourn have a few other jersey jackets on their site at the moment - some of which are reduced in the sale:
1. Beige by G&O, 2. Grey Stripe by Gerry Weber, 3. Navy/White Stripe by Betty Barclay, 4.Coral by Frank Walder
Back with the long promised harem trouser post next!
