Today I mix the Military look with joggers!
I already said here were the love for ruffles came from, but this item is also a bit from the same period. The eighties! Only back then we bought these Military jackets in dump stores. These were stores where they sold clothing and items from the army. We all wore these green trenchcoats and short army green jackets. Well apparently I’ve not changed that much because I still like a Military look. Bur now I’ve mixed it with joggers.
Shopping in stores that you normally pass.
Do you recognize this, that you never go to a particular store because you think they have nothing nice there, and then suddenly you walk pass the store and there it is… a perfect jacket. So you take a look at it, in the store, yes very nice but you walk on because you never buy in that store! Then you go on a holiday and when you get back the item is still dangling in the back of your head. Okay, you look at it on the internet and again and again, and then you decide to subscribe to the newsletter, who knows there are still more nice items and you don’t want to miss that do you? So a few days later, just when you decided to buy the jacket, you get a mail that they have a family night in your village were they give you a 30% discount on everything and you may reserve. Well, you know it by now: I bought the jacket! But sometimes you have that, that you never shop in a particular store and then suddenly you see something that you like very much. So you see again that you should never juge a book by it’s cover!(wink)
I’ve shown these joggers before here. As it is obvious to wear this jacket on jeans or a leather leggings, I thought it would be nice to style it in a more unusual way. And then I thought of the joggers. Because the jacket and the joggers are dark, I thought that adding a bit of color would be the right thing to do. But I wanted to show you a bright color and a soft tone. I find the outfit with the brighter red top most succesful. Because the jacket is a bit edgy I added some pearls for the contrast. On the pink top outfit I wear a brooche with blue tones and a necklace that I wear as a bracelet because the colors matched so well. My hairdresses had also been creative! Love it!
Now I am curious, wich outfit do you like better?
Ankle boots: older, but simular here
Have a fab day!
