My fav color happens to be green. I love just about all shades of green. Growing up though, I had a slight obssesion with hunter green. Now days my new go to shade is olive green also known as army green or military green.
If you had the chance to read my 26 & FABULOUS post then you know that I was enlisted as an active duty solider in the Army. I'm not sure if my love for military-esque looks comes from my stint or that I just simply LOVE olive green.
I have a pair of olive green jeans I bought for 10 bucks from a place called The Edge near my home. I wore them once, but had been dying to wear them with some military style boots. However I didn't own any up until this week. I placed an order from my sister's fav online store makemechic.com. You can see some of her hauls on YouTube.
It was there that I saw these lovely booties! A wedge ankle boot from Breckelle's. Features a rounded toe, crinkle leatherette, lace up front and full side zipper. Finished with 3.75" wedge.
They are so cute and comfortable, the perfect boot to go with my military inspired look.
This outfit was pretty simple, I wore my olive skinny jeans, cargo skinnies would work just as well if not better; I don't own a pair just yet. I have on a plain long sleeve cotton top from Old Navy and you are going to think I'm nuts but it's actually a maternity top from when I was pregnant with Naliya!
I threw my new belt over it, also in olive green. It has a lace up bustier front. It works to cinch my waist and to add another layer to my look.
Besides the fact the finishes on the belt are bronzed, whenever I think military, I automatically think brushed gold. Therefore, when it came to the accessories I went with brushed gold earrings and necklace. Both items you see are from the Chica Fashion Women’s Accessories Store. I also had a tri-color stretch bracelet my mother gave me for my birthday.
I put my hair in a high bun with a bump in the front to create a classic clean do. Overall, this look was fun, quick and easy. I felt relaxed and found it quite appealing.
