At Ease Solider. What’s cute & girly yet tough and strong? This look (obvi) but also Cadet Kelly!
If you have no idea what or who Cadet Kelly is: 1 – thanks for making me feel old, 2 – I’m pretty sure you can (and should) watch it on Netflix (P.S. we didn’t have Netflix as a kid you youngsters – we had to wait till shows came on live… I know, THE HORROR!!!) and 3 – I’ll explain more below.
Every girl needs a go-to utility jacket in their closet. I bought an oversized army one from Goodwill years ago, and still wear it as a layering piece or belted over a dress. It’s a timeless trend that is forever being reinvented and recreated with fun new ways to wear it.
I recently picked up this lace embroidered one – it was love at first sight and I knew I had to have it! What drew me to it, was the unique flirty twist on a classic style and how it works effortlessly with dressy or casual pieces.
It’s a splurge, but worth every penny – here are a few places you can pick one up
For reference I’m wearing a size 2!
Look for Less Options:
While I’m all about a good investment piece, I also appreciate a less expensive option – here are a few examples

I loved reading all your comments about some of your favorite DCOM (Disney Channel Original Movies) or ZOOG Movies on the post, took me back to my childhood. Awhhh, the good ol’ days. I often feel bad for kids growing up today, I meannnn how are you supposed to learn any of life’s important lessons while having a good laugh without valuable shows and movies like Lizzie McGuire, Even Stevens, Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century, Smart House and more? Is the next generation screwed because we took all of the best shows & movies? Yes, probably, because that my friends, is the determining fact of a success of a generation … obviously. Alright, alright, I’m kind of kidding – they’ll probably be fine despite developing without Halloweentown .. IDK, maybe.
