I wore this outfit to the movies with a friend and her boyfriend last week. When we met up with them my friend’s bf proceeded to tell me that I looked like I just got back from Vietnam. I’m not sure if he meant it as a compliment or just a general statement, but either way my brain immediately went to “blog post!”. So I repeated the outfit this past weekend for some errands and strolling around Montrose with my husband, letting my toes hang free in heeled sandals due to the exceptional weather as well as to polish off the look. Finding the perfect military inspired jacket has been about a 2 year process for me, so when I found this one at Madewell with all of my required features (color, length, collar, durable material) I scooped it up as soon as I had a discount code to use 🙂
I feel it’s the short hair that really takes the look to a ‘Nam level – badass, right? Lie to me if you disagree.
Finally, for all of you Houston brides-to-be, don’t miss out on the I Do Bridal Soiree this weekend at the Royal Sonesta. I attended last year… there will be all sorts of inspiration and vendors, as well as free samples (cake and wine, nom!!) and a bridal gown runway show. AND, if you order your tickets before noon on Saturday, you can enter to win these Christian Louboutin beauties (details here):
I think that is all the convincing you need 🙂
