Manic Monday: Floral Blazer






Sunnies: Vince Camuto | Necklace: Gifted (option) | Blazer: c/o eShakti | Tank: Express (option) | Shorts: American Eagle (similar, option) | Bracelets: Cara (option) | Heels: Christian Louboutin

I'm not even going to lie, I legit thought yesterday was Easter. I have no idea why, but it wasn't until late Friday afternoon that I found out Easter wasn't until NEXT weekend. Well, good thing I already have my outfit picked out! It's easy to reach for florals for Easter, but instead of a floral dress, I was craving a floral blazer. I should clarify that this is what I plan to wear for our casual family get together, where I'm pretty sure we'll be eating Mexican and not having a formal ham dinner or anything like that.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Since a floral blazer had been on my wish list, I was completely floored when I saw this one browsing through eShakti products. I'd heard of eShakti before, but had never shopped their website. It's unique because every item is customized just for you - you insert your size and height, and then select your preferences. For example, for this blazer, I opted for 3/4 length sleeves vs. full long sleeves, hip length vs. more of a cropped fit, and faux pockets vs. functional pockets. Neat, huh?

What's even neater is that eShakti is offering my readers 10% OFF from now thru May 10th! Just enter the promotional code "pieces" and please report back and let me know what you've picked and how it worked out for you!

  1. Look at you Carylee.....you are definitely an inspiration for me to grab a floral blazer as lovely as that one. Yours is def my favorite for its very easy breezy look which will get a lot of wear from me. I've been seeing a lot of floral blazers around but their designs are so busy & giving me a headache haha.

    1. I agree - there are def some prints better than others. Some are a little too 90s for me! I love that this is more subtle! I really do love it! Thanks for the sweet note, lady!

  3. Love the floral and stripes! <3 I really like how you paired it with the shorts and heels though! We have snow here today, so I feel like shorts are still sooo far away for me. Fabulous clutch too!!

    1. I'm SO sorry to hear about snow, seriously! It was in the 50s today, and even that was miserable for me, so I can't imagine snow, too!!
      But, thank you for your comment - hope you can wear your florals and bare legs soon!!

  20. Hi. I am off to a rough start today. But do you know what brightened my day? You posting an EXCELLENT dupe of the Express striped tank...the one that got away from me. I just clicked through and purchased TYVM. Someone wise once told me buyer's remorse fades but buyer's regret never goes away. I'm not making the same mistake I made last year by waiting and missing a great striped tank twice.
