Do you think it would be acceptable to wear a bubble gum pink blazer to an interview?

What job is the interview for?

Generally no, but in some sectors it'd be fine.

It's for admin in local government, would wear with navy wide leg trousers and pink/navy floral slash neck top. Just stock of wearing boring black really.

I think it would be fine if you are wearing it with more conservative clothing and accessories in a less formal environment. If I was interviewing (I know clothing doesn't come into it) I think you would stand out and hopefully in a positive way if you interview well too.

Forgot to add that I would in a non formal (i.e. no need to be suited and booted and can express yourself through clothing to a point) environment

I think avoiding boring black is a good idea, as in a long day of interviews, umpteen candidates dressed in identical black trouser suits can blend into one another somewhat...

If it definitely suits you, and looks appropriately smart, I think that would be fine.
