I've had this outfit in my thoughts for months now (literally) and I finally decided to break it out however I'm definitely some what regretting that decision now. It was so unbelievably hot the day I wore this that I thought I was going to pass out from heat exhaustion wearing this jacket! Don't get me wrong, it was a nice and lightweight jacket... totally perfect for fall but not so perfect for outdoors in the sun when it's 96 degrees out with a heat index of 104!
I absolutely love the dainty and feminine feel of the lace (and if I remember to take the jacket off for the picture the backless detail) paired with the rugged look of the military jacket. To keep the look completely casual I threw on a pair of leopard print sneakers which have recently been my go-to shoes for every outfit because they're just so darn cute! I love mixing flirty and feminine pieces with more tough and fun pieces to give it an entirely different look! And I definitely feel like the military jacket is going to be a fall staple piece! Major shout out to my girl Jill over at The JJ Report for taking yesterday and today's pics for me and for doing my totally awesome braid from yesterday's (and spoiler alert, tomorrow's) post! You should totally check out her blog, she did her first fashion posts this week and I LOVE her style!
Happy Friday lovelies! I'm not going to lie, I had every intention of taking today off from blogging since this week has been crazy ...
