Military

Photobucket
It seemed very fitting that I should be out photographing my new Blue Inc Military Jacket on Rememberance Sunday. Shamefully though, it was without a poppy. I very much like the style of this jacket - the tailoring, glossy buttons and high collar. Even though I rarely wear jeans, I think the two compliment each other quite well. It's a perfect weekend outfit... even though I doubt I'll be walking very far in these platform heels. And apologies for my solemn expression, I ended up taking these photographs unintentionally near a very busy road, so was far too aware of people slowing down their cars to see what I was up to!

Killer jacket! I love this on you. You are generally very feminine in your dressing, but you pull this off just as famously!

I love how this comes together, thanks for reminding me to wear open-ish shoes with dark socks! I have some that would look great with jeans but it's gotten so cold, that I just pass them up... Love the jacket, too :)
