Here's the thing: I loooove blazers. But they really aren't practical when you live in Florida. I recently picked up this coral stunner during a 50% off promo at Banana. The gold buttons, one of my favorite colors, I was immediately sold. But now I'm not sure about keeping it. On the one hand, I am a believer in making "investments" from time to time (like a designer bag, or even my navy blazer) on items you will love and wear forever. Often referred to as "cost per wear," you can make purchases totally worth it if you wear them enough times. But I'm just not sure if this blazer falls into the fun category, or the classic piece I will love forever category. Sometimes it takes me awhile to decide on an item, and this blazer has me stumped! Have you ever been in a similar situation? Would you keep or return this blazer?
