Soft Spring Palette


Last week Dubai was surprised with 2 days of unexpected rain.  It was getting hotter and I was almost sure that the good season was going to end but the 2 days rain definitely cooled the following days and we were blessed with fabulous weekend. To celebrate, I thought I would go out and enjoy the good weather, so I put together this look of soft color palette pairing of simple nude color t.shirt, my favorite mint color jeans and the light jacket I have been saving until now. 

This jacket was sent by Sammy Dress a few weeks ago for me to review and I as always promised do my best to give an unbiased thoughts to share with all of you. So lets start with what I like about it. First and the most obvious one was the color, I loved it from the moment I set eyes on it and I knew from then that it would go really well with my mint pants.  The cut was not bad too and the idea of using light fabric made it a perfect light jacket for spring/summer. But somehow the use of organza fabric made this jacket a tad stiff especially around the raglan sleeves.  Maybe with washes it would soften a bit and if that was the case, this jacket would be perfect. 

Price was also on the winning card of this jacket as it was so affordable (in fact all items on the website were) and some even with free delivery. For a jacket at that price, I have to say that it was quite well made overall and definitely this jacket would be my go to piece for this spring/summer.  It's quite versatile and could be dressed up or down. I could see myself wearing it over a maxi for a more elegant polished look and later with shorts and tank top for a day out on the beach!

  1. Stunning! I love the neutral colors with the mint. The jacket looks floaty and drapey...so you know I love it. Hopefully it softens up a bit for you!

  6. I love the jacket! It looks light and airy .. perfect for spring. I'm sure with a few washings and fabric softener, the jacket will soften up.

    PS: so sorry you're having difficulty posting on my blog. My blog is moving to word press this week, so perhaps that will solve the issue.

  8. When I saw this on insta I thought it was a shirt and really liked it; I LOVE it even more now that I see it's a cute, soft, springy jacket. The outfit is very elegant in an understated way and then boom the pop of color gives it vibrancy and makes it perfect! Love your shoes and of course Chanel bag! Hope you are having an amazing Sunday! XOXO, Elif

  9. Your Soft Spring Palette is Beautiful. I am loving how simple and clean White & Turquoise looks. I like the addition of the flower pin, too. I can totally copy this with my own clothes. =)

    1. The pin has been in the closet for far too long. I was mad for Chanel's camellia pins at one time and bought myself a few but hardly used them :(

    1. I have quite a wide face, so big sunnies work best for me. I cannot do those small, narrow type, make me look odd ;)

  18. I agree, very nice outfit and great soft summer jacket . Would be ideal to hide my old arms and still be cool. Great shoes too (never would have guessed they were Zara).
