Military Sparkle

Tuesday, September 4, 2012 154 0

Jacket and Top: J.Crew (old). Skirt: Zara. Handbag: Balenciaga. Shoes: Jimmy Choo (similar). Necklace: H&M. Headband: via Nordstrom (recent). Ring: BCBG. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

I just love when I already have pieces in my wardrobe that are right on trend for the upcoming season. Β A perfect example is this sparkly J.Crew jacket I’ve had for years. Β Military inspired pieces are huge for Fall, and this jacket is a feminine take on the trend, which I’m sure I’ll be wearing a lot of in the next few months.

    This is a wonderful look on you. I LOVE sequins and the way that just a touch of sequins are used on the jacket is amazing.

      Awww, thank you so much! I’m super short, so I find the sheer skirt is a little softer and makes me look a little taller than an opaque maxi!

    I can’t believe you’ve had that jacket for years! It is right on trend for fall and so perfect. I love the whole look! Also, I have been searching for a headband like that one for forever, yours is so pretty! I’ll have to go to Nordstrom soon and do some searching for sure.

    • Jenny

    So pretty and sparkly! Faves include the headband, jacket, and of course, that fabulous skirt. Makes me think of an early episode of Friends where Rachel/Jennifer Aniston wore a long grey skirt split in the middle over shorts. πŸ™‚
