Dusky Dreams

For months now, I’ve been looking for a casual summer jacket to add a pop of colour to my outfits without breaking the bank. So, you can imagine my delight whilst shopping in my local Matalan this weekend when I stumbled across the perfect jacket.

Matalan is the type of store that I can go in nine times and find nothing but on the tenth time, I will walk away with a gem in the form of clothing or homeware.

This dusky pink Suedette Biker Jacket instantly caught my eye whilst wandering the aisles and when I looked at the price tag and noticed it was only £30, I knew I had to have it. As well as the amazing colour, which I am totally in love with, it also has an amazing fit and isn’t too short like a lot of the other jackets available at the moment. However, I will point out that the sizing does come up bigger than usual so if you’re planning on ordering this online rather than popping into your local store then bear this in mind.

Not only does the jacket look great paired with a pair of jeans and converse but it can be dressed up with a summer dress and a pair of heels too; making it the perfect staple item for this season’s wardrobe. I’m so into this jacket that you’ll probably find me in this at least a few times a week throughout summer for all sorts of occasions. Casual afternoon at the pub? Yep. BBQ with friends? Yep. Meeting at work? Yep – It really is suitable for everything.

The jacket is also available in an amazing khaki colour which I have a feeling I’ll be treating myself too ready for Autumn too. When I find a bargain like this, I can’t help but buy it in every colour.

You can get your hands on this suede jacket here and don’t forget to send me pictures of you in the jacket using @meg_blogger across Twitter and Instagram.
