Eastex – Pastel Blue Elegance

Yay! It’s my birthday! Or nay! Another year older! Friends came over for lunch and I decided to take them for a walk in the local park and show them what I get up to on this journey of showing my style.

A lot of people really don’t get the work that it takes to put a fashion post together, and they found it quite interesting. 

I couldn’t wait to show you this Jacket and trousers from Eastex. I fell in love with this lovely pairing at the SS17 press event. You can read about it here And they have some fantastic offers online and in store, so keep your eyes peeled.

This gorgeous multi blue jacket here is perfect for that special day or night time occasion, and it feels really special on. It’s lightweight and the cream silky lining just feel so luxurious! In a previous post from way back, I explained that I have a jacket from Precis Petite  Eastex’s  sister brand and it’s been in my wardrobe since 2001. I still wear that jacket, it’s never dated and it still looks as good as new, so you get your money’s worth when you buy a classic well made item.

The different Blue hue’s that run through the jacket can be mixed with other colours such as White or Navy. The jacket’s actually paired with Navy on the website and looks really good. I have a cream silky pair of flared trousers that I think will work well, or my Navy Eastex one’s here 

The Avelana trousers that I have paired the jacket with are equally special. Please bare in mind that the trousers are 27.6 inches long would be ankle length on if you’re a reasonable height and not a petite little legs like me! I really like the new cropped ankle length that’s so fashionable at the moment, but I also like to try and make my legs look as long as possible! You can see them worn here on the model with som block heels.

Fastened at the side, my favourite style because they are just so much more flattering that way. There is a small elasticated piece at each side of the waist for added comfort, and if it’s a perfect work suit your looking for there is a matching jacket here

I’ve chosen a simple understated top and Silver and Aquamarine accessories to complete the look. Nude court shoes to finish. What do you think of the colour?  This and Blush Pink has to be my favourite colours this summer.

I’m in Syon park taking these photos today, a stones throw from my little London abode. The stately house is beautiful. I will have to go inside one day and take some shots in there. If you’re ever near this part of London I recommend a visit. You can find the website to the grounds here 

Do take a look at the Eastex site. There is up to 50% off some items at the moment. And do let me know in the comments what your favourite pieces are. Speak soon, I’m off to celebrate my birthday!

    Happy birthday Laurie! Hope you have had a great day. The blue is a lovely colour and goes beautifully with the silver and aquamarine. I used to buy Precis Petite quite a lot, even though I'm not petite — they have some nice stuff. I'll take a look at Eastex.
