Blazing Pink Sailors

Happy Thursday!

Last night, one of my good friends texted me out of the blue to meet her for drinks and dinner. I was already in sweats and eating mashed taters with gravy for dinner, so I was pretty done for the night. But my friend sounded kinda tipsy (ok, a lot tipsy) and she is crazy fun all the time, but even fun-er when she's had a few. So I threw on a quick outfit, which included this freaking awesome new blazer from H&M. It doesn't look like it's online, boo! but it was $20! twentydollars! Bargain!

Let's talk a bit about blazers. Exciting stuff. I bought a blazer a couple of years ago, and it just felt wrong, no matter what I tried. I figured it wasn't for me. But I've been seeing them everywhere, and everyone looks so freaking good in them, and then Ginny went ahead and did this post. So, I told myself if one fell into my lap, I wouldn't be sad. This one fell into my lap. For $20. They had so many cute blazers, including this one for only $20 in store, that I had to stop myself from buying all of them.

Something I learned was that I was buying the wrong kind of blazer. I had a 'boyfriend' style blazer, and I couldn't work out why it didn't fit me the way I wanted. I tried this one on and I knew it was what I had been missing. I think the boyfriend style is cute, but not what I was looking for. I might have to go back for the blue & red one, it looked fabulous on, if I do say so myself. But I'm trying to be good.

It was a great, impromptu fun night. We sent the above photo to our fourth friend who was out of town to make her jealous. She's in New Orleans - don't think she was jealous that we were at Mellow Mushroom.

Now let's move on to today.

What an absolutely miserable, rainy no good day here in KY.

I thought Spring was here to stay, but she left. And I know, I know, April showers May flowers, blah.

If you follow me on Instagram you know about the 2 style challenges - 3 days in and going strong-ish! It's kinda fun, and it's a great way to not have to worry about what to wear, and to go through my closet a bit more, otherwise I tend to reach for the same things each week.

Today's was Tickled Pink + Oh Hello Sailor!
Hence the really awkwardly weird post title.

  3. Fit is everything with blazers! I can't do the boyfriend style either even though I love it on others. Loving your pink paired with the striped flats. Really cute!
