|jacket (worn as a dress) c.o // bracelet // shoes: Franco Sarto (similar here and here)|
Military is a fall trend I was struggling to get on board with. Shoot me, but I thought camo was tacky five years ago and I’m not about to spend any money on it today (there are some adorable bloggers I’ve seen look adorable wearing camo, but I think its in spite of the various shades of green). I may be kicking myself later, at one point awhile back I thought denim on top made you look like a farmer and now chambray is a staple in my wardrobe, but whatever.
When I came across this gem on eShakti’s website awhile back, I knew it was something I could try. I have a few skirts from there which I adore (see here and here) but I was hesitant putting in all the custom measurements for my arm width and shoulder span in addition to the standard waist, bust, and hip measurements (the lack of confidence was more in my measuring abilities but again, whatever). When this showed up last week I was floored; It fits like a glove. Technically its a jacket, but I added a few inches to the length when I ordered it allowing it to double as a dress. For church yesterday I added this tulle skirt underneath for a fuller look (lost the tulle when I got home and didn’t bother to put it back on when we took these a few hours later). I’m imagining all the fall tight/boot combos I’ll be wearing this with over the next few months.
***UPDATE: ITS BACK IN STOCK (CLICK HERE)
My heart broke for you last night when I went to find the product link online – its sold out. I’m checking to see if they’ll get any more in stock but for now they do have other killer chambray options including this military blazer, this chambray jacket and this shirt dress(check out all their chambray here and be sure to scroll down to the chambray maxi – it looks like a wedding gown!)
I have now managed to spend three paragraphs discussing a jacket, forgive me (although it is a great jacket). To add to the superficial nature of this post I’d like to mention my hair. Its third day hair (aka I washed it on Friday) and when I was too tired to shower on Sunday I spritzed on a little dry shampoo and spend three minutes braiding and pinning. Its a wonderful thing to look put together when you want to be lazy (or unhygienic, or both).
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I’ll be back tomorrow with all of our fun adventures (that also involved unwashed hair and braids on top of my head).
