I’m linking up with Kellyann and Jill today for Fashion Files!

Speaking of Kellyann, she has been talking about her blazers and looks so put together in them. But, I knew that her blazers wouldn’t work for me. I really wanted one, but I didn’t want a boxy cut or super structured shoulders. I didn’t really even want buttons. I wanted a stretchy comfortable fabric that wouldn’t wrinkle, too. Sounds like a tall order, right? And, why didn’t I want any of those things? I just didn’t think those would be flattering on me and I didn’t want to look like a linebacker.

Last Friday, Alli featured a light grey blazer from Walmart. I have been quite vocal that I am not a huge fan of Walmart. I have been burned many a time when I have shopped there. Plus, I don’t have one very close to my house. I have a Target very nearby and always leave happy. I always leave Walmart angry – maybe it’s just me. So, anyway, back to the blazer…it was a pretty high price point for Walmart and the brand was Scoop, which has intrigued me before.

You guys…the fabric is better than anything I could have dreamed up. They call it “scuba”. I don’t even know what to make of that, but this is really, really good. It has scrunched sleeves, which I also like. It seems like it would be very hard to wrinkle.

I wore it Monday for parent teacher confereces:

I wore it again yesterday for “favorite artist” day:

I ordered mine on and I couldn’t believe how speedy their shipping was.

And, a couple of days later, I ordered the hot pink! OMG! How cute for spring, right?

I hope it looks as good on me as it feels on me, but that’s probably not possible. I didn’t think the blazer trend would work for me.

Are you a blazer person? This would be a great way to try the trend if you are like me!

  1. The blazers I wear are that scuba fabric too. Mine are not a Walmart brand and have to be ordered but dang they are good. So glad you found some you like and they look great on you! I swear blazers go with everything and add that final, finishing touch! Thanks for linking up with us!

    1. Isn’t that fabric the best? It didn’t look the same from the photos! I think I will get lots of wear out of them and they are super warm for our return of winter but I think they will also be cool enough for spring – the fabric is magic!
      Thanks for the link up!


  2. Walmart makes me angry too 🤣but Walmart online has never really failed me. I always tell myself that worse case I just have to go in for a return. Anyway, the blazer looks fabulous on you! I love the pink as well.

  3. I love you in that black blazer! You should try it with a tee and jeans too! I wear that a lot, and guess what I love the most in my wardrobe right now? A hot pink blazer! You will love it too!


    1. Thank you! I kinda felt like a cool Swede in the second outfit. I am gonna try that look soon! I just don’t have enough places to go! Ha! That is so funny that you already had one!
      I need to know…. have you watched Younger and Season One Episode Five yet with the Swedish author? I watched it again last night and laughed and laughed about a particular part!


      1. You did look like a cool Swede! 😀 I’ve come as far as finding where I can stream Younger… I will watch it!


  4. Blazer trends seem to come and go. I got on the trend 9 years ago, then fell off that wagon. Its just me. But that blazer looked darling on you! Cant wait to see the hot pink! so cute with a white tee and denim and you GG’s!


    1. Yes! I had the prettiest Chanel inspired one back then that I really loved. I am excited to wear them with jeans. I am hoping they are in style for a while because I think they will work for 3 seasons for me?


  5. you look so fabulous in the black blazer/ black pants combo! i agree: it would also look great with jeans and a t. in fact, i took myself over to the walmart site and ordered one! i have a love/hate relationship with walmart but they have also stepped it up in the home decor department! can’t wait to see you in the ho tpink!


    1. Aww, thank you Rita! I can’t wait to wear them with jeans! Yes! I really hope that you like it, too. I think is almost like a different entity. I really like the Better Homes and Gardens line and of course, my Pioneer Woman is there!
