Military Mix - Friday Fashion Finds

This Spring, one of my favorite trends is the utility or Military jacket look. I love these rugged jackets ~ they are not only fashion savvy, but super comfortable and casual too. You can wear it out to dinner over a dress, belted with a skirt, or slung over your jeans for lazy afternoon of lounging and shopping. Here are a few ideas on how to pull off this look while still keeping it sophisticated and feminine.

Boho Chic

Who says mixing and matching patterns has to make you look like a clown? The black, white, khakis and reds make up an elegant AND fun color story here. Love the contrast of the boho prints with the modern and hard edged accessories. This tribal printed vintage black and white dress(3) is is so cute and looks great with this fantastic army jacket(1). Gorgeous silver earrings(4) reflect the geometric pattern of the printed dress(3), and would go with anything. Heat up the outfit with pops of warm reds by tossing on a hand painted silk scarf(2), incredible statement square block ring(5) (which I'm drooling over), and these oh so sexy, Italian vintage boots(6). Top it all off with this super fun,bohemian camel tote(7) that looks like it could fit just about everything in it!

March on

Stand up straight! Put those shoulders back! Why? Because you'll look simply smashing in this smart little black marching band jacket(1) and amazingly versatile double threat tank dress(3). Twist up this warm and sophisticated, hand painted silk crepe scarf(4) and charming little vintage drummer pin(5). I just love this silver and gold, square stacked ring(2) (and again this is such a great piece ~ could go with any outfit). Complete this stylish look with these great riding boots(7) and phenomenally crafted, gorgeous tote(6). Now you're all set to march on and on... to the next look...

Flying High

Look up, up in the sky! Is it a bird, a plane? No, it's an amazing and airborne loving outfit that every girl MUST have this season! Let's talk about this yummy, military inspired outfit, shall we? This awesome vintage air force jacket(1) really sets the tone. Throw it on over a fun and sexy little heart breaker T(5) with a pair of rockin 90's D&G jeans(4) and we have a cool, casual ensemble as it is. Add in this super cute winged bomber ring(3) and cool vintage, Ray-ban aviators(8) to add to this winged bombshell beautiful outfit. Bring in more feminine touches with a hand painted, charcoal roses silk scarf(2), and add a bit of silvery shine with pretty silver flats(6) and smashing, metallic hobo bag(7). Presto ~ you're a pilot's dream come true. :)
