april 26th {shrunken blazers}

j crew blazer {thrifted}   ·   merona blouse {thrifted target stock}
old navy trouser jeans   ·   lela rose for payless heels

sometimes i try things on in the fitting room when i go thrifting and think, "hey, this looks good!"  so i take it home with me only to realize i had actually purchased a child's blazer and the sleeve length isn't meant to be 3/4 length on my adult sized arms...  this blazer now falls into that category.  i just can't figure it out!  i picked it up at savers mid-week when during a buy one item, get one item free promotion.  it was $11.99, which is more expensive than my old friend the goodwill prices their blazers (most of the time), but since i was getting another item for free and it's j crew and in great condition, it seemed to be worth it.

i'm not sure what the name of this style is, my googling isn't turning up any results, but the cotton fabric is really thick and sturdy, like duck cloth?  and the arms are yet again shrunken which made me question for a while if this was a little crewcuts kids blazer until i justified that it must be women's because of the cutesy grosgrain ribbon detailing.  well, it's a cute blazer so i'm committed to making it work!

have you pulled together some looks yet for me and marissa's pantone-inspired spring color challenge next week?  join us here at my blog on monday to show off how you're wearing emerald this spring!
