Military Style Jacket *updated*

I’m not super trendy. I never have been one to race after a fad…with the exception of slap bracelets, I was all over that shit.  I tend to gravitate towards outfits that are functional as well as attractive, yup, just like every other fashion blogger out there, you can insert my snort laugh here. This post was supposed to be done last Friday but I was distracted by being sick and navigating my first single (that feels awkward to type) holiday, then there was something shiny and…..

HERE is my one week late short post about an outfit I found on Pinterest and decided to remake, this is the original picture I found on there:

Seemed simple enough I already owned most of it, I just needed the jacket. Which I found at Old Navy for twenty bucks! The breakdown goes like this;

White tank (most ladies have a few of these lying around, amirite?!?) If not pick yourself up one from Target or Old Navy or my personal fave Nordstrom.

Military style jacket, similar style here.

Distressed jeans, I went cheap on these at first and then later upgraded to some fancy-schmancy ones, but truth be told I still love the originals Vigoss from Norstrom, at $58.00 bucks they are a stretchy steal.

the scarf came from Forever 21 accessories, I have them in almost every color which I find reasonable given how soft they are for $12.80

The earrings I purchased last year from Stella & Dot after being a hostess for a party. I will admit I went through a big, dangle, flashy earring phase but I just love,love, love studs. These feel fancy and the pop of green-blue is nice. While these original ones are no longer available these are cute and have the same color in them.

For day I wore a pair of Sam Edelman black leather flats but at night I added a black ankle boot, you know to feel saucy. The booties I have are from Target, as a side note I don’t usually buy shoes there,  I find they kind of suck, then again I have weird narrow feet so this could just be me. These Mossimo booties have been the rare exception to that feeling, I wasn’t sure I was ready to commit to the whole ankle boot thing so I took them for a test drive and fell in love, a similar (and in my opinion cuter) version is available here .

I have worn this combo two or three times since finding it online, give it a whirl and let me know what you added or changed.

Happy Weekend!

Fashion Friday

I’m planning to make Fashion Friday a regular column, fortunately due to the overwhelming support and outpouring of kindness yesterday I just sat here with my jaw hanging open…

My cup truly runneth over.

Next Friday when you drop by you will find a nifty little piece about a recent outfit I found on Pinterest that I am now living in.

Thank you again for yesterday, it was amazing.
