Happy Friday Girls!

The military jacket is one of my favorite trends right now…well I’m not really sure if it is a trend right now, but I just made it one and I love it.

I immediately got made fun of when I brought this home by Warren and Alexandra.  They thought I looked like I was in high school band and that it was too crazy – specifically all the gold details (my fave).  So of course it made me love it more (ha!).  They have no idea what they are talking about.

This specific jacket is only available in store at H&M (I hate when they do that) but it is fully stocked and only $59.99.  I love all of the detail they put into it: gold buttons and trim (also in the back) and the black with blue cuffs and collar.  *Tip* Details like this are what make less expensive pieces look more high end, in my opinion!  I was immediately in love with it and couldn’t wait until my January “allowance” came so I could go buy it (more on that later — mentioned on this post)

I have been looking for lace up booties forever and especially in patent leather.  Again, not on trend right now, but that’s how I roll – I always want things I make up in my head that aren’t around.  BUT, I waltzed into Zara this weekend and found just ONE pair and it was like the holy grail!  I have linked some similar ones below if you guys are interested!

I really wanted these pics to turn out well but we literally took them at dusk and they were SO dark.  Learned a little more Photoshop tricks tonight while editing.  Since we didn’t adjust the ISO on the camera for night shooting, they came out grainy and gross.  Hope you get the gist of the outfit…as you can tell I look uncomfortable and irritated that I miscalculated the “golden hour” (ugh!).  Sorry about that!

Happy weekend!

xoxo

      They are not, but great alternatives. I would definitely go to H&M store to grab this though, It is such amazing quality and tailoring for H&M!!

    Nothing quite like a well made military jacket. Nice touch with the shoe choice.

    That jacket is a must have. I am a little upset that I am not local to the store that carries it.

    When I read the title of your post, I was thinking that the jacket was going to be green. This one is fabulous and I love how you styled it!
