Why does the JQuery "blur" event listener not work as expected?

I have a mobile nav - I'm trying to write something that will take you straight to the "close" button, so that the user can can close the mobile nav. I'm trying to trigger this when the last item in the menu loses focus. (when using your keyboard to tab through the menu)

However, what is happening right now - as soon as that last item receives focus, it jumps straight to the close button. So you don't even get a chance to click the link

Why is this happening?

    $('.closeNav + ul a[href="#lastLink"]').blur(function() {

This code seems to work as intended with my Chrome browser. But then I had to make up some HTML to go with it. Perhaps the issue is in the HTML.

Please show the actual HTML code this is used with.
