The Art of War

7th November 2013

Army Jackets are a fall (winterish) must, I have basically live
in mine all season long. Although this trendy piece pairs perfectly with
all black for a chic and effortless look, it is also a little over-done. So I gave this look a little make-over by mixing bold graphic pints
with girly-glam accessories to switch things up!
Oh, and did you nottice my non-fashion accessory courtesy of Starbucks….
It’s the most wonderful time of the year: red cup season!
Jacket: Vintage (obsessed with this one) // Dress: Modcloth (this one is darling!) // Bag: Coach (similar) // sunnies: Karen Walker (also here) // Arm Party: Francescas // Jcrew (similar + 50% off!) // Belt: J.crew
I love goodwill, if you’re patient enough you can find some great stuff! One goodwill hunting trip a few years back, I snagged this Army Jacket and matching pants. Since the military trend is here to stay, I wear them separately all fall long! I love that the army green color works as a neutral: pair it with other neutrals, pump it up with a pop of color (Try red), or follow my lead and play with pattern! Comfy, Casual or even Classy… work this versatile jacket all season long! My jacket is not my only “thrifted” find: After realizing I do not own a normal sized black purse (what’s wrong with me?) I stole this oldie from my mom’s closet, sorry mom! I love my vintage version but they are few and far between, but don’t fret Coach still sells a similar one here!

tomato, tomahto

2nd June 2013

 i’m not too fond of tomatoes to snack on but have no problem looking to this vibrate veggie (it’s technically a fruit, but i can’t quite commit to calling it one) for outfit inspiration!

tomato red is a bold color choice, but pairing it with a contrasting color opposite of red on the color-wheel can give it an extra pop! and finishing with black & white takes the look to another level.

:: love my ampersand ring? get the look via etsy ::
this summer, skip the shorts and try a full skirt instead! it will keep you cool, but add an element of sophistication to your summer style! if you don’t happen to have one, try converting a skirt!
