WIW: Floral Blazer

I'm so glad I found this crazy floral blazer at my local thrift shop - it just makes me happy looking at all the vibrant colours and flowers. It's like wearing my garden!

I've paired the blazer with an asymmetrical neckline ruched tank and my black capris. I've added my chunky Fly London sandals for a bit of edge and my green handbag for a bit more colour (if the jacket is my "garden" maybe my handbag is my "lawn"?).

So what do you think? Does it work? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Blazer: thrifted (no label)
Tank: Attitude by Jay Manuel
Capris: Reitmans
Sandals: Fly London
Handbag: Cleo (thrifted)

    The colors in your new blazer are so happy. I like how you have let it be the star.

    The all black under that loud, vibrant blazer is excellent. The sandals are great too.

    Shannon, your garden is beautiful and your lawn is perfect! Seriously, great look and very flattering with that column of black under the crazy happy blazer. Brilliiant!

    I can see why it makes you happy. I think it looks great on you and really love it with your fab green bag.

    The blazer looks so happy with the green bag. I like the black sandals and all black top and pants...really lets the blazer be the star of the outfit!

    I would have never even thought to wear that blazer with an all-black outfit, yet it's so perfect! I LOVE it. Good job with the styling. Bag and shoes are divine. :)

    And next I want to see it with all white.

    And then, all denim!

    Totally works! A great combination.

    Lets see the floral blazer with white the next time you wear it, Shannon. THAT will look so fresh to my eye.

    Oh, that blazer has attitude! Love it!

  • rae replied 7 years ago

    Oooh, I'm with Heather!

    Love it as-is, too, of course. A little artsy-chic, yet still vibrant and cheerful.

    Seriously successful outfit!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    Alright Angie & Sunita - I hear you. White with this blazer next time!

    Heather - love our suggestion too. Thanks for another styling idea.

    Thanks Rachylou, Rae and JR!

    Wow gorgeous. Can't wait to see it with white too!

    The jacket IS beautiful and will also look great with white! The fabric of the jacket looks also to be dressy enough to transition to evening wear.
