What colour blazer?

I recently ordered this blazer in pink and black and am debating which to keep (both!?).

I'm currently on mat leave with 2 under 2 so will be spending my time chasing the toddler round the park with a baby on my arm. The black would be more forgiving but the pink more summery and would hopefully go with the zillion plain black summer dresses I have.

I could be tempted to keep both but am put off by the fact that it's dry clean only!

I'm lusting after the pink, it has gold buttons too. Ditch the black (I have it from last year) and stick with the pink. You can buy the black at any time but the pink will probably been a one off!

That's a good point buster and then it'll give me a chance to buy the black one later if it wears well.

How do you find the sizing? I'm actually going to send these ones back and order a size down as I find it quite oversized and would like a narrower fit. Just hoping it won't then be too small!

If mine is the same they are a bit big, kind of 80s fitting but I stuck with my usual size as I ordered them from abroad and it would've cost £££ to return. I also bought the yellow/green one but I really really want the blush pink!

On closer inspection I've got a different blazer, mine dos t have a collar and it's washable, I remember choosing it because I could put it in the washing machine!

And I've got the yellow! I went a bit crazy and needed some colour in my life! 😂

I'm loving the blush pink - think it will go with loads of stuff for summer! I may have another look for a machine washable black one too.

I'm not in the U.K. either but did a free return. It's not very well publicised but there is a link on the website which takes you to a return form to fill out then they email you a return label. May only be for certain countries though.

That pink is the colour this spring. Buy the pink.

I've seen the pink in my local RI and I just love it, it's teamed with a white embroidered vest! 😍

My size has sold out! I was browsing the web site and thought I might pop one in my basket! sad
