Les Fleurs

"Yes, but we occasionally get the breezes." *
“Sort of…but occasionally we get the breezes.” *

While I appreciate the ease of No-Brainer dressing, sometimes it’s fun to play a bit more and build an outfit around a specific piece in my closet. This Zara jacket was from last summer, and while I don’t wear it as often as some of my solid jackets, I do enjoy the pop it adds to a simple outfit.

I wanted to find a backdrop with a lot of flowers to complement the jacket, but as we’re in a severe drought, much of the vegetation around here is looking a bit parched. While I was taking pictures, the breeze picked up (as you can see from my hair) and the sky definitely had a “rain possible” look to it; sure enough later that evening the light rain started and continued through to the next morning.

  1. Florals can go tacky very easily if not done right, and that jacket is oh-so-right! It’s floral without being in-your-face or Laura Ashley 90’s nightmarish. The shoes are to die for, too!


  2. My favorite of any look I have seen on you. Color is GREAT on you– playful and enlivening. Also, accessorizing with those necklaces and shoes gives you a completely individual and striking look.

  3. I have such a thing for this jacket. Looks lovely on you, and the shoes are right up my alley. So happy to hear you had some rain … I’m sending some ours to you kids out home.

  4. This is great dressing and proof that simple is elegant. I love the laid back with the statement floral jacket. It speaks quietly, and yet powerful at the same time.

  5. Great outfit – love this look on you, especially those shoes! In the past year I have discovered Ann Taylor LOFT as a great source for tall jeans and skirts. They only carry the tall sizes on line, but the combination of their “tall” and “curvy” fits has become a favorite of mine. Old Navy also has tall sizes on line, as does Ann Taylor.

  6. What a great outfit! The colors are so flattering on you. I am seriously coveting everything French Kande. Located a shop that carries the line in one of our Fall vacation destinations, so I’ll be checking it out in person soon. Also wanted to mention that I recently was perusing your Pinterest page and was surprised when I saw you with red hair (I’m a new follower). It was fun, but you look like you were born to be a blonde! Love the current style and color – it really suits you.
