Ferretti and Frills

One of my favourite thrift finds has to be this navy linen summer blazer, by Philosphy di Alberta Ferretti. It was from the Salvation Army charity shop in February and was only £3.99. I love it as I can wear it with the sleeves rolled up, and with the body being unlined, its a really great piece to keep cool in summer.


I've worn it with my freebie frilly Paul & Joe Sister vest top and my denim leggings


I love blazers, they are such a versatile item for all the seasons and I've quite a few that are summer and colder weather wear too.

Will you be in a blazer this summer?

Hi
I think you look very good in your blazer(and the other outfits I've seen).
I love blazers but in summer , even when it's not very warm I fin very dificult to wear them, don't know why.

3.99??? You seriously find the best deals, Sharon! And the cut is so flattering on you!

I would love to wear a blazer in the summer, but our Atlanta heat barely makes tanktops/vests liveable. Very jealous of your British summer weather ;)

Love it! I've been doing blazers all summer - they're the ideal top layer.

Adela said...

That blazer is awesome, Who needs to spend £45+ on a linen blazer in topshop when you can find great ones in charity shops?

She's Dressing Up said...

Ooh its such a perfect fit. I do love blazers, just the right amount of smart for a summer evening!

Kristin said...

That IS a kick arse thrift find!

jess said...

The blazer is great. I'm excited for fall, I get to wear jackets again.

nice legs!

Make Do Style said...

Great blazer - I have only the one a white one found in TK Maxx last year. I though mine was a bargain at £19 but you've beaten me!

I like the bottoms that go with this too. I need to look for some of those. They go with so many things.

Thank you so much for the note. Well..I remember an ex who always kept refering to me as his little sister and I kept thinking..I don't think you'd be that way with your little sister.

Anika said...

damn you for all these ridiculously awesome finds ;)
Your wardrobe must just be killer.
And hell yes to blazers in summer, they just have to be lightweight.
p.s. love this outfit...its classic chic at its very best. Nice!

Hope you're having a great one

Another great find diva! I know thats a well made jacket because I own a beautiful blouse from Alberta Ferretti that I bought of Ebay and I know I will have it for a longgg time. The quality of that piece is beautiful.

saray said...

it's too hot in israel - you can't really wear blazers in the summer

Sharon Rose said...

I just love blazers! they are my faves and I think you can never have too many, because if you live in Canada you wear them all year long.
