Floral Blazer

I just love the backdrops of many of the public areas here in Huntersville, NC and throughout NC. Lots of flowers everywhere. When I saw the trend of the floral blazer, I was on the hunt. I could wear florals every day and be happy about it. Something about colorful flowers that just makes one happy. I always loved flowers. When my husband and I married 13 ( wow) years ago, I had asked for everything with red roses on it. So we had, rose shower curtains, plates, dishes, pillows, comforters, you name it. As I mentioned, I always liked roses and flowers.

So, hunting for a floral jacket was more of a task than one would think. I am picky about the colors, and I just loved one that Zara was showing last year, with oranges, reds, pinks, etc. This was a lovely blazer however, I have no idea how the blazers on Zara fit, and I didn’t want to risk it on Ebay that it didn’t fit. So, instead, I went to another store on-line, whose clothing I really like as well, for their uniqueness: Anthropologie. I had looked at this before, but low and behold it was on sale, at a price that worked for me! I like how it is fitted, even though the material is soft , it is still structured as a moto jacket. Again, another warm day, so shorts were in order, with my favorite Clark floral Artisian sandals. I will pair this jacket at a later date with a skirt, but today, it was shorts. Hope you enjoy the jacket!

Jacket: Anthropologie,( sold out)  Shorts:Nordies, Shoes: Clarks Artisian ( Similar) Bag: Brahmin ( similar style), Earrings: Jewel Box

Have a Great Weekend!

    Cute blazer, Jess! ZARA had a blazer and a matching pencil skirt last year. I remember it well as I tried the skirt. Colours were a lot brighter though.
    I think these subtle colours suit you better!

    Enjoy the sunshine 🙂

      Thank you Annette. No makeup on that post, I think the sun got rid of it all. Anyhow, thank you! I liked the cut and the roses were my style. I do remember the orange, red, and yellow blazer and skirt, and remembered loving it, but I didn’t shop much there then. I love it now, as I get the clothes in 2 days and free ship. And they have beautiful clothes too. You too, enjoy the day, going out soon. jess xo

      Thanks Debbie! Glad you like it! Every once in awhile I find something on sale that I like at Anthro. Appreciate the comment, It was hot that day, so it was a shorts day, so after the photos I had to take the jacket off 🙂 jess xo

    You have so many beautiful handbags! I like the way they go with your earings. I also love the collar of your jacket. I buy a lot of clothes on ebay. I tend to try on clothes in store, then when something appears on ebay I grab it. Maybe you could try some jackets on in Zara so you know how they fit on you? Great look.

      Thank you for all of the lovely comments. I have a few very nice handbags.. since I cant wear beautiful heels because of my condition, I dont buy many shoes, but I bet my hubby would rather me go back to shoes than bags 🙂 That is smart about Ebay, and yes, I think i will eventually try a jacket at ZARA to see what fits. xo jess

    Hi Jess, I passed through NC on my way to my son’s graduation from basic training almost 10 years ago (wow how time flies). Anyway I have to agree the scenery in NC is beautiful and I love your choice of the backdrop in today’s post. I’ve been on the hunt for a floral jacket as well but I’d like it to pastel shaded but to date no luck. As always you look great. Hope you’re feeling much better.
