MyStyle outfit post: Featuring my River Island quilted floral Summer jacket

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend- I managed to get to a couple of boot sales on Saturday and Sunday but didn't come away with an awful lot but I enjoy going even for the walk and the atmosphere. 
This outfit was one I wore a few weeks ago but I decided to do a post on it to show you all the jacket, which I thrifted from a neighbouring town's Barnados charity shop for just under £5.
It's by River Island and is an ideal lightweight jacket for Spring and Summer and is very Liberty print-esque in style too- the patchwork of different prints is what attracted me to it straightaway:


It is a cropped style, so ideal for wearing with jeans and I'm hoping to purchase a plain colour or striped jersey maxi dress soon so it would go well with that too:

It is a perfect daytime jacket whether I'm going for a trip into town, to the park or even as a cover up when I go to the coast- I will wear it in the heart of Summer with a cami top underneath and some denim cut offs:


I am linking this post to the lovely Patti at NotDeadYetStyle for Visible Monday.

Do you have a floral jacket that you are wearing this season and if so, what type of style is it?

Have a great week ahead and here's hoping that the sun decides to come out and stay out so we can start wearing all our lovely new Summer clothes and sandals!!

Wonderful, versatile little jacket. I just bought a yellow floral blazer that's getting a lot of casual wear, like this. Thanks for sharing with Vis Monday!

Sometimes you don't find many things when vintage shopping.
You really made it good with this jacket, the cut and the print look great on you.

What a completely cute little jacket. I'm so envious of these highly individualized items that really customize a wardrobe. That's the best of vintage collection, I think.
Looking adorable, you. Nice, too, to have items to go "on quest" for.

Have a great week, Sharon!
