Outfit Post: New Zara Jacket with Casual Jeans

fashion and style vlog

Quick little outfit video to show off my new Zara jacket. I say new, but I actually bought it a couple of weeks ago now. It’s pretty cheap and cheerful – I can’t imagine it lasting too long, but it has a nice shape (for now) and lovely clean cuffs (not for long). They were doing these jackets in loads of different colours when I bought it, so if you’re looking for a casual little blazer (soft, unstructured) then go and have a rummage. I have paired it with my Sass & Bide jeans and some white converse – a slightly odd choice, for me, but I was in a rush and I needed to be comfy! Anyway, a few people commented on how “smart” I looked, so maybe I’ll crack this ensemble out again when I next need to come across as professional. (Hohoho.)

Makeup details are below the video pane – it was a very Estée Lauder-heavy look, but the foundation was the beautiful Diorskin Nude. Lipstick is the wonderfully illuminating “Mauve Struck” from Lauder’s new Vivid Shine range, shadow and blush are from the Aerin Weekday palette. Hair simply pulled up into a high ponytail, which I think looked quite good with the eye flicks. Nail polish is Chanel Holiday, which I will never tire of. It’s great.

  1. Hi Ruth,

    I bought this jacket and when eating a plate of clam linguine at Polpo splashed some oil on it. I tried to remove it with stain remover but it’s made it much worse. Have you ever got a stain on this jacket and if so…have you had any luck removing it?

  2. i have that jacket and i LOVE it. it’s so comfy.

    Your house looks really nice, you should do some interiors blogging too!

  3. Love the jacket – I think I have the same one in navy and pink! You’re right the shape is fantastic for a very reasonably priced jacket

  4. The make-up is just utterly gorgeous on you! :)
    Loved the outfit too, I was surprised when you got closer and I could see the blazer was jersey because it looks so structured from afar.

  6. Hi again, thanks for such a quick answer, off to shops tomorrow …. :)

  7. Hi Ruth, looking great as usual :) Sorry to put this here, wasnt sure of best place, but could you recommend a fab liquid luminizer? Kind of like TheBalms Mary-Loumanizer but in liquid not powder form? Thanks in advance.

    • Yep, Becca does an amazing skin perfector in “pearl” and MAC strobe cream is a classic! St Tropez also do one in four tints xx
