Balenciaga Pink Sorbet City Bag, Jersey Blazer and Jeans

I enjoyed carrying my magenta Balenciaga day bag recently, so thought I'd pull out another pink bag, my sorbet Balenciaga city. With spring-like warmer weather, I decided to wear a blazer rather than the cardigans I've been favouring over winter.

I tracked this cream Zara blazer down on ebay. It's soft jersey material and I have it in black too. I really like this cream colour as it's a great neutral and goes with everything. The soft fabric makes me happy wearing it outside of the office.

What I wore:


SunniesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Jacket: Zara cream jersey blazer
Scarf: navy bird print scarf
TankMEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo C/O Zibibo
JeansJeanswest Super Skinny Jeans in Mid Indigo
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats (on sale in black or silver!)
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a lunchtime catch up with a friend from out of state. She was in Brisbane for a couple days for work and managed to squeeze a little bit of spare time to meet up. It was so lovely to see her. The weather was not quite so lovely! It looked like an okay day and as it was supposed to rain a little I brought umbrellas just in case. After we made the decision to head off it started pouring! Luckily the stroller has a waterproof cover, but I realised on the way home that I had left the spare battery pack for my phone in the now waterlogged baby bag!

This pink Balenciaga looks pretty bad when it gets wet but (as I reassured my friend) it dries fine and it handles the rain well. The sun does more damage to it through fading the colour than any rain, especially since I've waterproofed this bag like all my handbags. It wouldn't be my first choice to wear for a stormy day, but at least I don't have to worry about it developing watermarks if I do get caught in the rain with it.


Last worn: cream blazer, bird print scarf, navy breastfeeding tank, skinny jeans, gold mouse flats, Balenciaga sorbet city.

Why I wore it:

I enjoyed wearing the jersey blazer so got it out again when I was trying to think what jacket would go nicely with the pink and grey outfit I'd put together. I did try a denim jacket with this, but it seemed to hit at an odd point on this top, I much preferred this blazer. Ran some errands, took toddler T for a haircut so he'd look nice for his brother's upcoming dedication ceremony and had dinner with the inlaws.

It's the second time I've worn this new top, so my purchase review:

I like it! It really is perfect for breastfeeding, and the fabric is softer (and a little cosier) than the navy one I have in the same style. The wrap top is kept together with a snap closure so I just need to unsnap it to breastfeed, really handy even though it's not actually a breastfeeding top. I'm pleased I bought this and see it easily getting more wear.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, cream blazer (above), grey wrap top, pink leopard print jeans, silver ballet flats, Balenciaga sorbet city (above).

Other ways to wearcream blazer and burgundy pants, grey wrap top with black and tan, pink leopard print jeans and ankle boots, silver ballet flats and blue jeans, Balenciaga sorbet city and a wrap dress.

  3. I love both these looks, but my favorite is the second one! Those jeans can be tricky to style because of the print and color, but you've nailed it here! How do you waterproof your bags? I found that interesting when you mentioned it because I didn't know this could be done! I hope you have a very Happy Friday and weekend ahead, beauty!

    1. Thanks! They are very fun jeans to wear but do require a little extra thought :) I use a waproo spray to waterproof my bags, it's an Aussie brand I think.

  7. I'm actually loving the cream blazer with the gold heels! Super pairing right there! The bag really highlights the printed pink pants and gives them something to play off of. Printed and colored pants have been oddly hard to come by over here. C'mon America, I a just want some interesting pants! (;

  16. How do you waterproof your bags? Not that I wear many, I am still with my diaper bag, but maybe for the future.
