Making Camo Feminine

Camo

Feeling feminine in a masculine pattern.

the scoop

I grew up in an area where people hunted and camo was worn for that purpose. I never really thought of wearing camo until the last few years of watching it being transformed into so many fun outfits. I now have this pattern in a tee, shirt, jacket and jeans. I love them all and find them so versatile. I have found that I can put together really feminine looks now and it's fun.

Now is a great time to get a field jacket. Linking several below, all on sale. Perfect to tie around your waist outside but put on in the cold resturants and shops.

my look

For this look I am wearing a black tee dress. It is just tee shirt material with a relaxed fit and slit pockets on the sides. A favorite dress for me. I added a camo jacket since we have not even made it to the 70s most days here in the mountains. I wore a pair of platform espadrilles, and a pink cap to add feminine touches. I carried an old picnic basket for a tote to complete my look.  

Linking fun options for dresses, sneakers and bags! All on sale!

Camo For Spring?

Camo for spring?

It's a thing! All you have to do is add some white to make it pop for the season!

I guess we see camo being worn for about every season. It's almost become a neutral. I think of it as something I wear in the fall the most. But I LOVE these pants so much and had to see how they would work for a spring look.

In this look I wore a my newest field jacket, a pair of wedge sandals and a bamboo bag. 

Here are links to my exact look!

Adding white to my look

along with wedge sandals and bamboo bag gave these pants a real spring vibe. 

For this look I switched out my jackets for a light weight duster and loved the way it turned out. These pants are so fun with the zipper detail. They have a little stretch so they are oh so comfy! I tried different earrings with each look and just cannot get enough of the Baublebar earrings from Target.

Thanks for Stopping by gang!

Peace!

Field Jackets, Scarves and Platform Shoes

Field Jackets, Scarves & Platform Shoes

Gosh I saw this jacket online by way of Crazy Blond Life blog and fell in love! I knew I would be able to style it in so many ways. You may get tired of seeing it. It comes in a dark blue too that is beautiful.

the scoop

There are some clothing items I collect.  Jeans, white button downs, denim jackets just to name a few. Field or military jackets are on that list too. I have at least four or five in different styles and brands. One is camouflage as seen here and here. The peplum on this jacket is what stole my heart!

Scarves are so the thing this spring!

I got this beautiful square scarf and fell in love with the colors and versatility. I wore it over my shoulder, wrapped around my waist and wrapped around the handle of my bag.

See how I wore a scarf around my waist here too. Field jackets and scarves are in for spring but the biggest take over is platform shoes, especially in a sneaker style. They are all over the place and come in every color imaginable. I am obsessed and have three pair as seen here and here
