Hi all

Teal is my colour for 2019. I bought this Boden blazer because I was keen on having a teal jacket for Spring. Unfortunately it’s going back. The fit isn’t right for me. But it may work for someone else.

It’s a fairly thick Ponte. Not summer weight (for me at least). The teal colour is more blue than green.

I ordered my regular size and it’s just a tad too tight around the shoulders and arms. I am quite broad in the shoulders. Here I am wearing a knit underneath but I still felt it was too tight across the shoulders even with a sleeveless top. I also wish it were a little longer - the waist cuts in a little high. (I am long in the torso.) It’s a shame they don’t make it in a long. This is a regular.

It’s lovely and I would have kept it if the fit had been right.

If you are narrow of shoulder, it could still be your jacket!

Bonus pic of what I wore to the hairdresser today on a very wet, drought breaking (yay!) day.
