Fatshion Faceoff: Colourful Blazer

I'm a bit late with this weeks Fatshion Faceoff because I've been working like a crazy woman trying to pick up some extra spending money for FFFWeek! I am so insanely excited about getting back to New York and catching up with all the fabulous people I met last year! Anyhoo, this outfit was worn today when I went out with some of my besties for lunch. I have to admit the blazer came off pretty quickly, it was too hot to rock it all day long, but I definitely love the way the whole look came together.

Blazer: Forever 21+
Tank: Crossroads
Skirt: ASOS Curve
Tights: We Love Colors
Necklace and clutch: eQuip
Flats: Target
Sunnies: Sunglasses Shop

I make no secret of my mad blazer obsession. I have a pretty extensive range now with most of them coming from Forever 21+, they make truly fab, well priced pieces and honestly, I can't resist the bargains! I adore the candy stripe look of this jacket, I always find it hard to incorporate pastels into my bold coloured wardrobe, but the white really helps balance this blazer out. 

This necklace is so uber versatile. With the eye catching colour and the statement shape, I love adding it as a real focus piece to an outfit. I wore it boho style to a music festival last week and it also works so well dressed up today- a perfect investment!

These ASOS Curve little skater skirts are fabulous!! I am so happy I snapped this little floral one up, I've worn it so many times and its ultra comfy. Having easy to wear and versatile pieces is my number one wardrobe priority. I always try and picture a new item working into my current clothes collection and these little skirts go with so much!

I've already had a squiz at my FF babes this week and they all look amazing! Go check them out!
