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.
