Annebeth 's thoughts:

Return of the jacket! Those that follow me probably remember me telling about how I lost and found this jacket a few weeks ago. I didn’t lose it again because that would be silly, but somehow jackets don’t get worn very often by me. They are too rigid, too structured, a feeling I mostly associate with coats! I prefer to wear a cardigan inside. I always find it silly when I hear men say they don’t like wearing a suit because it just doesn’t feel comfortable, but I can totally relate.
Oh well, I guess it’s just one of those things you have to get used too.
My jacket and dress are quite simple, but I like simple and I upped the volume by wearing over the knee socks with it. I immediately thought of these ankle boots when I put the outfit together because they also have military-esque detailing with the buttons on the side. I was quite pleased with this look, I hope you like it too!

PS would you believe I actually didn’t feel that comfortable in this military inspired look because I’m totally against armies, guns, wars etc etc and I kind of feel like it’s wrong to glorify it? I’m such a hippie at heart.

I completely agree about jackets. I too prefer the comfort of cardigan over a summer dress, even though jackets can be such a great structuring touch. This red jacket really highlight your skinny frame and it adds a bit of a fairy tale vibe to the look imo. I love the length of the dress, the a line and the oh-so-cute thigh hight socks. I have some but somehow never dare to wear them!
Annebeth
Annebeth on May 07
go for it, you'd look totally chic! If you layer them over tights they totally lose their typical schoolgirl/fetisjy image. Or just wear them with things that don't immediately come to mind when you think over the knee socks! Go for itttt! and thanks :)
