Tousled




Jacket: Nordstrom juniors (option) | Necklace: Express (option) | Dress: Bailey 44 (option) | Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs | Bracelet: Express (Similar) | Tights: DKNY (option) | Booties: Sam Edleman (option)

I really didn't mean for my hair to be tousled in these pics - it was just a bit windy - but when I was looking at them, I ended up liking the tousled look for this outfit! 

Confession: I haven't worn this jacket since my post here. Well, I mean, I wore it in real life that day, too, not just for the post. But my point is, it's been April of last year that this has been hanging in my closet not worn. And for why? I have no idea. I love military style jackets. I love this olive anorak jacket that On the Daily Express has. The shape of this jacket really isn't  much different than that - so why can't I just freaking wear it more? I need to, definitely. And I'm glad I wore it today. In an effort to inspire me to wear this more, I put together the following alternate ways of styling this!

  1. I'm a huge fan on tousled/bedhead-y kind of hair.....and it's so cute on you Carylee. A military vibe will always add character to any winter look!!

  2. Aw, I'm so flattered. :) You look gorgeous here. I love the feminine dress mixed with the tough army jacket. (Plus, it reminds me that I want a similar black dress...must shop for that.) And your supermodel hair makes everything look great.

    1. Thank you so much! And I know what you mean! It's still intimidating to me and I always get comments from coworkers when I wear it! But this jacket makes me happy!

  9. Great camo jacket and the way you styled it was great because it looks more dressy. That is what is so fun about camo; it can go both ways. Nice to meet you!
