Military





Dress (Max Studio find at Marshalls); Jacket & Belt (Gap); Shoes (Nine West);
Earrings (Nordstrom); Necklace (
Helen Ficalora "S"); Bracelet (festival purchase)

Between the army green colored jacket and bullet holed looking belt, I'm classifying this look as military.  Although I don't feel especially authoritative or more in charge (I need a LBD for that type of empowerment).  This is probably since I can pull rank on literally no one.  Not even Rex.  Most of the time at the dog park I'm both throwing and retrieving the ball (he's got me trained well).  Unless I have treat... then he lets me be in charge :)

I like this look on you.....a lot. Is it bad that I have shoe envy?

I love the combo of the army green jacket with the striped dress! And I agree, I definitely feel most empowered in an LBD. There's just something about them!

Shea Sayers said...

Haha, it's only with a treat that I'm in charge of my spoiled mutt too :) I love this military look--the jacket looks great belted and with stripes!

I like how you styled your military inspired jacket. I'm on the lookout for a green jacket for myself this fall.

Bethie The Boo said...

Love this jacket! I would like to get a military style jacket for fall. I had one a couple of years ago but it faded oddly over time so I got rid of it. I'll be on the lookout now!

Rebecca said...

This is a fun mix of pieces. I really like how you added a belt over your jacket, it gives you such a great silhouette.

This jacket is fantastic! It has such a great fit to it and I love that you paired it with stripes. I know how you feel- I'm the least intimidating person on the planet!

My bowzer is the same way. She thinks fetching means "go get it and bring it, ...but don't let her have it really. Adorable outfit! I am drooling over your shoes! GORGEOUS!
