How I Met The Neon Boucle Blazer

I've had my eyes on this neon boucle blazer for a little over a year now.

My bank account shook its head at me when it was full price and the words 'out of stock' popped up when it landed in the sale. One day last week, I was mindlessly wandering through the bright corridors of ASOS peering at the goods on offer when I stumbled upon my old friend, the neon boucle blazer. 

At first, it raised its eyebrows at me and gave me the cold shoulder before ushering me away to whisper 'I'm on sale for £17.50, in your size and the last in stock!' I didn't need telling twice, I snapped it up and whisked it away from ASOS' hands.

The rest they say, is history.

The sun decided to celebrate our reunion with glorious spring weather last weekend. 

'Go on, take it out for a spin!' 

I slipped on my leather trousers, rummaged through Jordan's wardrobe (boys have the best graphic tees) and rushed out of the door with my blue Topshop bag dangling from the crook of my arm. To make the most of the sunshine, we decided to go on a little adventure around town before stopping to visit a newly opened ice-cream parlour. It was great.

We even have plans for the blazer to join me to my trip to Rome next month. We can have gelato, gaze at the Colosseum and end the trip with the finest pizza. There's still three weeks to decide but I've already convinced another t-shirt and my pair of denim shorts to join us too.

I don't want to sound too hopeful so early on but I think this neon boucle blazer is my new favourite thing.
