Camo and dots

Nordstrom Camo Jacket
Express dot blouse (similar, larger dot version here)
Gifted stretch bracelet (love this one)
Misc bangles (similar, similar)
Michael by Michael Kors pumps (similar in suede)

I haven't owned anything camo in quite some time. I bought this jacket a few weeks ago if you remember from a previous post. I have been struggling with how to wear it without looking too costume. This dot top arrived from Express yesterday, and as soon as I pulled it out, I thought "Aha! This will be perfect with the camo jacket." I love the idea of dots or pink or other girly things paired with camo; I feel like it takes the edge off a bit. But I decided to add a little bit of edge back into the outfit with my shoes. You can't really tell in the photos above - from the front they look like your standard patent pointy toe pumps. The back view is awesome though. (No, the zipper is not operable, just fancy decoration!)

I'm really happy I finally wore this jacket today. I need to find new ways to wear this because it's a lot like leopard, and it really goes with everything.
