OOTD - Casual Sunday

Blazer - Matalan/Breton Top-New Look (via Charity shop)/Belt-Hollister/Jeans-Dorothy Perkins/Shoes-Primark (old)

It's been absolutely ages since I did an outfit post. I'm trying to do more of them, but I always feel a bit awkward posing in front of the camera. I also wear a lot of my nicest outfits in the week to work, and at weekends hang out in jumpers with messy hair unless I'm off out. Hopefully now the evenings are lighter, I'll be able to get out into the garden after work for a quick photo session.
Last Sunday, I knew I would be going out for a couple of hours once my boyfriend returned from football, but needed something reasonably comfy until he got back. I think this outfit is the perfect combination of casual and comfy, but tidy enough that I feel I can leave the house in it!
I feel in love with this blazer when I spotted it in my local Matalan store. I love Navy, and anything with an elbow patch, and most 'heritage' styled clothing. Although it's now much more Spring like outside, and you can almost smell Summer, this is perfect for those in-between days, and will easily fit into my Autumn wardrobe too. Navy and brown are one of my favourite combinations, next to navy and red, and I'm sure this Breton striped top will make a few 'nautically styled' appearances as the season moves on.
I also picked up this fab pair of boots in Matalan, which in the end I had to have delivered as they didn't have my size in store. They came super quick and again they are perfect for those April showers!
Have you made an 'trans-seasonal' purchases recently?
