Uncle Sam Wants You!...To Wear This Jacket





Jacket: Rubbish (Nordstrom B.P.), Button Down Shirt: TopShop, Shorts: Klique B., Shoes: Steve Madden, Floral Hair Accessory: H&M

As soon as I saw military jackets were coming en vogue, I was obsessed and knew I needed to add one to my wardrobe stat. This one that I picked up from Nordstrom's B.P. section was one of the first ones I loved, and I purchased it on the spot! I love how easily I can layer with it - tank top, button down, jacket. It's great with jeans, shorts, leggings, pants - you can't go wrong! Plus I adore any opportunity to wear my lace-up pseudo combat boots, so I took full advantage of the situation :) 

The jacket itself is light enough that you can toss it over an outfit in the evening in warmer weather temperatures, or layer it into a snuggle pod in cooler climates! ...I've never said 'snuggle pod' before, i literally just made it up, but it sounds delightful!

Adding the flower in my hair was a last minute spontaneous styling decision. At first I didn't think it would go, but then I liked the slight contradiction it provided to sweeten up the look, just slightly. I had just purchased this little hair accessory over the weekend from H&M in 2 colors, and jumped at the opportunity to utilize it. I have a strange love of putting flowers in my hair - there's just something so whimsical and lovely about it. It makes me feel lighter and let's me pretend for just a moment that maybe I am in a fairytale and anything is possible :) 

As you can also see, we've embarked on my vampy lips series...no end in sight. I haven't worn a real lipstick in a long time, but I fell into such lust with this color I had to have it. The lipstick is actually matte, but i lightly dab a tiny bit of gloss over it to add a touch of sheen. The lipstick I'm wearing is MAC's "Diva" and I overlay it with my staple Sephora brand gloss in "Vibrant Coral Shiny." Yes, that's the name. 

I definitely feel empowered and slightly 'diva-esque' when wearing my vampy lipstick, BUT be warned!! - it is NOT a boyfriend lipstick. It looks fierce, but you can't kiss with it - lest your man appears like he was in a face fight with a clown. Ew. 

So how's everyone's week going?! I'm trying to write a paper...it's not going well lol, so I hope you're holding out better than I am! See you on Friday kittens ;)
