Hello there darlings!
It's Marisa here on this loverly Thursday morning. I'm back today with a swap from the very gorgeous Katie, of Butterfly Loves Snapdragons. Can I tell you, this gal has me in never-ending swoon mode over her closet full of vintage pieces and when I saw this bright & bold plaid blazer of hers, I just knew I wanted to give it a try as it was definitely a different kind of piece for me. I guess you could say I'm more of a cardigan kind of gal myself but nonetheless, the rainbow of colors in the large plaid print just kind of drew me in like nobody's business.
Anyhow, Katie took a cool & casual approach to styling it and I quite love it, however being a shorty myself, this oversized blazer would be down to my knees if I were to wear it with flats & jeans so....
...over my teacup & menu print dress it went:
I'm pretty much so a self confessed color freak so naturally my first instinct was to throw it over a red dress and wear mustard tights with it, but that would have been just a little too predictable for me. In contrast, I decided to pull from the darker blues of the blazer and wear it with navy instead. Of course the vintage gold shoes and a big red bow were the nuts & cherry to the sundae here because let's face it, when it comes to wearing bows on my head and on my toes, I just can't help myself.
