Khaki or Olive Green …
I bought this beautiful khaki coloured Italian made and designed military jacket and then was a bit at a loss as to how to style it.
I went the conservative route and paired it with black.
This type of jacket is quite the trend at the moment and I, for one am enjoying embracing this trend for myself, although I’m actually an anti-authoritarian Australian!!
I do love to wear colour, even in winter which we are now well in the midst of at this time.
I inserted colour into the outfit with some bright, fun printed leggings and a cute hairband.
Some arm candy, my black booties and a couple of silver necklaces, to match with the big buttons on the jacket, completed the look!
Knit-dresses and Me!
Over the years I have collected many knitted dresses and I always love to wear them when the weather cools down.
This thin-knit dress is not bulky but is soft and comfy, with a roll-neck and side splits which I like because it gives pretty movement to the dress when I walk.
Keeping It Simple…
I kept my underthings to basic black – very pretty and feminine:
Thank you so much for joining me in my little corner of the web,

I love military jackets. This looks really cool & suits you; I never paired my old one with a skirt but I want to try it now, just need to find a new one that fits! xx

Donna! How I love this jacket! Styled like this, it has a whole different feel, you look amazing. The cheeky tights were the perfect personality punctuation. These shots are so fabulous, the light and your lovely form and visage a pleasure to see! Your hair looks like fiery copper in this light, so well done. I love your narrative and the way you take the style right down to your skin.
