Pastel Soldier

April 7, 2014
I love the juxtaposition of flavors, styles and genres.  Sweet & Salty.  Run DMC & Aerosmith.  Tough and Sweet — and mixing these two elements in my fashion choices is really just a reflection of my personality.  Being too sweet can be nauseating.  Too tough and you risk becoming cold and isolated but the right amount of each to me is like creating dynamic ladylike power.

 

I’ve wanted to wear this military army vest for the longest but didn’t know how to style it without it becoming a carbon copy of a Pinterest pin.  I wanted it to be all me.  So adding the sweet elements of pastels and the tulip hem of the skirt added femininity to the army green.  A little tough — a bit sweet but all chic.

    I am literally gagging right now!! You are my style icon. Your style is impeccable and your curves are sick to death. I would have NEVER thought to style an army green vest by mixing it with feminine pieces. You pulled this look off miss lady and made it look so effortless. You are definitely one blogger I look forward to reading your posts. Please keep inspiring me 🙂
