Floral Blazers

Not too long ago, I blogged about how floral prints on pants were becoming a hot fashion trend. Well, the same goes for floral blazers. The two items (pants and blazers) that usually remain basic solids are being transformed into outfit focal points. Now, silk tanks and tops are taking a back seat. The only thing is that blazers are often very expensive, so why would you spend your hard earned cash on a floral tailored fit when it's bound to go out of style soon? Well, you may not have to worry about losing too much of your money to cash in on this trend. ZARA and ASOS have it covered. For under $100.00 you can have a blazer of your own.

Okay, so how do you wear this bold statement? Keep the rest simple and classic. The images in this blog post are perfect examples.

What do you think? Is this a trend you want to invest in? Do you prefer floral pants to blazers?

So, I may be getting a tad ahead of myself considering it's still 106 degrees in Phoenix, but I'm already spying my next winter coat - or shall I say CAPE! Pea coat style is usually what catches my eye each winter, but I'm ready for something different. Capes have been around for ages. I'm not sure why all of the sudden I'm wanting one. Maybe I'm watching too many Marvel comic movies?

Stylish Weekender

Everyone has their indulgences, right? For some people it's once a month massages, nail appointments, having their car detailed, Sprinkles cupcakes, etc. For me, trying new restaurants, having my hair done, and soy lattes are my frequent rewards. The ULTIMATE treat, however, is travel. I LOVE visiting new places, friends and family. Plus, after seeing this AWESOME weekender at Urban Outfitters (first bag below), I'm itching to jet set off to California, Colorado or even New Mexico since they're all close by.

Below, you may just find the weekender bag that will give you the indulgent travel bug too! (BAGS: ASOS, Urban Outfitters, ASOS, Fendi, Hickoree, J.Crew/Wexler, Anthropologie)
