Bloggers Do It Better: Military Chic

posted on: Tuesday, November 22, 2011

I've been wanting to participate in bloggers do it better for a while now, but I kept missing every challenge! I've been basically stalking Kristina's blog (Pretty Shiny Sparkly) for the past few months now, and finally, a new bloggers do it better challenge came up a few days ago! The challenge, style up a military inspired item. I didn't really have too much to choose from in my closet. An army green t-shrit, tights and jacket were pretty much my choices. I decided to go with the jacket. 

And here are some other outfits I wore this jacket with in the past. I actually find this shade of green to be so versatile, and I wear this jacket often. The nice part is that it also has a detachable fur collar, but somehow I have not managed to photography that yet. Next time I guess.

  1. I love all of these outfits, but especially your most recent one. You accessorized it to perfection! And it contains basically all of my favorite colors to wear. Love it. xoxo!

  2. I really love this outfit, that pretty white skirt looks so great with the militaryesque jacket. I love the mix of masculine and feminine. With the fur and those gorgeous brown boots its perfect!

  3. love your jacket, perfect everyday outfit!

  4. Snowww! We are supposed to be getting a pile tomorrow! I always think it looks so pretty in other people's photos, and then I remember posing in it for photos. Less fun. ;) But you look adorable, I love this outfit! Such a great jacket!

  5. Hopped over from BDIB, I love the contrast of the jacket with the rest of your outfit, which is pretty and feminine (lace and fur). Lovely fall/winter color scheme, too. It's also fun to the other ways you've styled it.

  6. There are so many things that I adore about this look: the arm party, the boots, great jacket, etc.

  7. Detachable fur collar?! Even better!

    Sometimes American Eagle randomly has the best stuff.

  8. well i absolutely LOVE the way you styled the jacket! you look so cute!
