i am coming to appreciate blazers and jackets in the summer more and more
it seems like stores and offices are always freezing in the summer.
great to wear inside and just whip it off when outside
great looks!

I love the colored blazer! I have a red and a blue myself, but this yellow is the cat's meow.

Jenny said...

Wow, all 4 are such fabulous outfits! Funny thing, I was scrolling through and didn't even realize you were wearing the same blazer in each photo. Just goes to show how different and fabulous each outfit is.

I've been eyeing this blazer at zara for a few weeks now, and will probably buy it in two colours. you've sold me on the yellow for sure, and now I definitely know I can wear it to the office too. Love this!

Mary said...

i have the same blazer is a navy color.. for some reason, when i don't button the jacket there's a werid ''flare'' thing that happens to my jacket. is that something you've noticed before?

Kimberly said...

Hi Mary,

I haven't had that problem with this one - could it be defective? :(

Karina said...

I love look #1! Great job in finding such cool pieces in reasonably priced stores. It's always refreshing to know that you can copy your favorite looks while not having to rob the bank next door.

I love this blazer. I saw it at my local Zara and fell in love with the vibrant color. Unfortunately, they only had XS left. I am still on the hunt for a bright yellow blazer.
