Jacket: H&M (not online)
Knit Pants: Ann Taylor {similar here} {and here}
Shoes: Christian Louboutin "Decoltissimo" {similar here} {and here}
Clutch: Made by me (inquire for pricing)
Earrings: Made by me
Bracelets: Target {similar here} and vintage
Ring: Kendra Scott "Tela" {here}
Watch: Michael Kors {here} {similar here}

I loved this yellow and purple floral printed jacket and yellow blouse at the store, but once I got home, I had second thoughts. Though the colors and print are pretty, two layers of polyester in the Southern heat and humidity are NOT practical (Southerners, you know what I'm talking about). Since the hot weather is right around the corner, I don't foresee myself wearing it much at all. Readers, how often do you have second thoughts and return clothing/accessories to the store?

PS - Lovin' this soft sheer shade from OPI's New York City Ballet collection!

I really love the print on the blazer! But I can see what you're saying about it not being practical for where you live. I often buy things and have second thoughts, but it's rare that I'll actually return something!

I return clothing and accessories to the store hundred times. Remember! you don't want to spend money in things you don't really like.

I usually buy clothes or shoes without even trying. Then I try them at home, if I don't like it I will take them back.

Besides that, it will give me an excuse to go back to the store ( shopping) heheh..

You're serving some Asian inspiration! Its very pretty, but I feel ya on the poly. I can't stand sticky, unbreathable clothes in the hot Georgia sun.

Marion said...

You look gorgeous Mary Ann! I love the print. But like everyone else has commented, if you don't foresee wearing it much considering the weather, you should trust your gut and take it back. I have 2nd thoughts all the time...which is why I leave the tags on things until I wear them. I'm way to indecisive!

PS - How awesome is that first photo btw?! Love it!

Love this outfit and that floral jacket brings in an oriental vibe! Adore the bright yellow blouse. Yours style is absolutely amazing, dear!

Tam said...

You pull off the cat-eye sunglasses so well! They look marvelous on you. Love the way you paired the red clutch with your yellow/black/purple ensemble--it looks so unexpected and chic!

Kate said...

LOVE that jacket! I totally hear you about the polyester, though. At least you can wear it in the spring! And maybe get a cotton shirt to pair with it in the summer - not for wearing the jacket outside, but inside where the AC is too high!


Cheers!

I have that blouse too in the python print! Super excited to wear it but for now it is too cold. Two layers of polyester is rough in the south I can only imagine how hot it'll get. Poly doesn't breathe air. But for $9.95....you know where this is going hahaha.

I really only return if it's an online purchase that doesn't fit. If I buy in-store- it stays with me forever. Are those hydrangeas?
