military chic

outfit one-i am wearing: nordstrom rack sweater, guess cargo military skirt, dkny tights, guess platform loafers (similar), target ring & necklace. nail polish is “izzy” by zoya.

outfit two-i am wearing: h&m dress, aryn k military jacket (similar), thrifted belt, michael kors heels and watch.

i have a confession. i TOTALLY forgot about this week’s bloggers do it better challenge (military chic)! so as i lay in bed last night, i remembered i have this military-ish cargo skirt. and then when i put it on with my black sweater and snapped a few pics, i realized it didn’t look military enough. and my opaque tights were looking sheer with the flash. sooooo….i changed. and then i didn’t care for the shoes i was wearing with my new ensemble. sooooo, friends…these are my two attempts at a military inspired outfit. not my best bdib challenge but these two looks will have to do.

    Love the second one – I almost wore my cargo jacket, too, but changed at the last minute!

    Oooo, I love olive green with white. The second is my fave! That jacket is amazing and it looks great with the belt over it.

    My favourite is the third one- a unique pose. I especially like the rings!

    Your military look is better than mine! I couldn’t find anything to wear. I definitely prefer the second outfit. Love a good army green jacket!
