WOOTD » Work Outfit Of The Day

April Showers Bring May Flowers! It’s been cloudy and a bit windy in Houston. I can feel summer creeping up with the humidity going up. I’m not looking forward to taking photos in Texas heat.

But the wind brings some cool breeze that a nice jacket would keep me warm. I get cold very easily so I stock up on caridgans to lightweight jackets. Lots of bloggers have purchased this Zara tweed jacket – called Fantasy Blazer on zara.com. What I like about it, is the structured shoulder and mainly the beautiful color.

This is my third tweed jacket and it is the best fitting and the softest to the touch. My Malang jacket from Uniqueen and the Yesstyle.com Stylekelly tweeds are more tight in the shoulders especially when I lift my arms straight out in front of me. Another thing is the texture of the jackets. Zara is made with softer materials. Uniqueen’s and Yesstyle’s is just a bit more scratchy but not overly. I’m probably just being picky.

And most importantly, Zara’s tweed jacket has bigger pockets!

One thing I have noticed about the Zara jacket – the threads are already loose around the pockets and the hem of the sleeves. Little strands are puffing up and so it looks a bit beaten up. I haven’t decided if I like it that way.

I'm a mom of 2 girls. I struggled to lose the baby weight the second time around and by blogging my struggles helped me deal with a lot of the stress. During my struggles, I had random strangers ask me "How far along are you?" or "When are you due?" I was embarrassed. Most of the time I told them the truth, that I had given birth X months before. There were a couple of times I lied and said what they wanted to hear. When I was at a normal weight, I then struggled to find what clothes fit me. Everything about fashion went out the door and I had to re-learn what clothes and sizes fit my post pregnancy body the 2nd time around.
