I Make It Work

Oh hey bloggers. Happy Wednesday. I think I should turn my blog title into something like “A Thousand + Ways to Wear a Military Jacket, Brown Boots or Black Leggings” because lets face it….it seems to be all I have been wearing lately. Part of (or all of) the reason is because my wardrobe is limited because I gained a tad ton of weight while preggers and nothing fits. Aaaahhh!!!

If I have discovered anything about my love for military jackets though its that they can be worn with anything. Anything. Any.Thing. And so can brown boots. Even if it doesn’t go, I make it work (as the ever so intelligent Tim Gunn says).



Dress: Francesca’s

Tights: Target

Belt: Old Navy

Boots: Target

Purse: Francesca’s

Jacket: H & M

Necklace: Stella and Dot

Watch: La Mer Collections

Bracelets: Stella and Dot,  Stella and Dot



Linking up with The Pleated Poppy  for What I Wore Wednesday!! Yay!

    Ohhh! I so want that bag! I could fit a million things in there (least of all diapers and wipes…which is what now constitutes a decent bag for me!)…love this outfit. I, too, have been living in my flat cognac boots!highheeledmama.com

    Love that dress! The colors & print on it are gorgeous together. If it isn't broke (military jacket)- Don't fix it! Work with what you love my dear, because you rock the jacket so well. Every time I see you in an outfit post with the jacket I am reminded of how badly I want one. :)LindsayJEverday.blogspot.com

    I love this out. The dress is fabulous and I agree – brown boots and military jackets are very flexible pieces.~FringeGirl
