Turning Heads #Linkup and Watercolor Floral Blazer


Seems to be a “good hair day”! Believe me, when it is the mid 90s as it has been, it just wants to flop and frizz!


I am wearing a Vintage pink brooch from Etsy as a pin to close the jacket if I want a fitted look.



New watercolor floral jacket by Dorothy Perkins! Greens, blues, greys and pinks.


  New Shoes in a “Pepto-Pink” ( you know that’s a color!) from Lulu’s


Today I decided to wear this jacket, a floral blending of a watercolor print. I saw this and new it could be a very versatile piece in my wardrobe. The jacket takes center stage as I pair it with this off white pleated skirt .

It looks like a watercolor painting to me, with brushstrokes of greys, blues, greens, and pinks similar colors to the one below by artist Ana Cenzato.. I love the roses, the pattern you will see again in another garment of mine.( surprise!).


The skirt is a mini from Zara, and the shoes were just perfect with it, as I love the pointed toe, detail on the side,and the ankle straps.

Here are the details: Jacket Dorothy Perkins,( sold out, another Paper Dolls jacket ) Skirt Zara, Purse: Charming Charlie, top: Ann Taylor, Shoes: Lulus.

Carrie of A Lovely Little Wardrobe!  I had to share this cool and sexy look with the denim short and those rugged cowboy boots  with you all. She is such a lovely person, and  she says I have “… a style that enhances who I am as a woman I want to share that with others.” She has a knack for mixing clothes I tell you!


As my Co-Host, Please follow her on Bloglovin and Instagram!

The fab ladies this week are:

Karen from She Thought She Could wearing this lovely maxi dress in peach striped.is lovely tin this color!  I finally, “got with the program” and bought a maxi myself~


Staying on “trend” with this burgundy striped romper and those snakeskin heels, love the mix! Ashley from Lestylorouge


I love this, and on a precious and cuteness factor-scale of 1-10, I would have to give this a 20++!
The matching skirts are just too sweet on Sandy and her daughter, Vivian  of Mommy and Me


So let’s bring our trendy, fashionable,lovely selves to this #Turningheadstuesday #linkup and have fun exploring one another’s styles! I know I do! We had an AMAZING turnout last week, and I want to again thank you for your participation!!

    Found you through Jennifer. In my opinion, you can never have too many stylish redheads out there, but perhaps I’m just a wee bit partial. At any rate, orange is a fabulous color on us redheads. I love it and wear it, even if only in a scarf. The combination of a “look-at-me” color with “oh-so-ladylike lace” is just too delicious.

    Love it!!

    Cheers, M-T

Yes, I Love to see how other redheads style their clothes and the colors they choose. I appreciate that you like the look as well. I am one for well made lace, and this high collar attracted me as well. Again, thank you!! jess xx
