Military Status Collaboration: A Pinch of Lovely

Last weekend, Krystal of A Pinch of Lovely and I met up for a mini shoot in downtown Baton Rouge to collaborate on the military trend that is so prominent right now! From army parkas to camo pants, this trend is here to stay. Coming from a place where camo is a staple in everyone's wardrobe, it is refreshing to see fashion's take on the work wear of hunters. 

When we were talking about what to do for this collaboration, Krystal suggested camo, but "cute camo." I thought the "cute" part was a given but in this area you never know! I love how she styled her camo pants from Zara with a deer sweater-- how punny! And to keep it classy, her polka dot flats and sparkly jewelry from Stella & Dot do just the trick! Besides, the girl mixes prints like a boss. 

For this outfit, I went a little more figurative than literal. My 1940s war time dress, combined with a modern army jacket, paired with gladiator-style shoes and a coconut clutch kept the look feeling fun!  [Sidenote: Have you ever tried to crack a coconut? It's a fight... get it? Military... fight? Just laugh, okay?]

On Krystal: Zara camo cargos (similar); Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac in gold; Forever 21 sweater and flats; Stella & Dot: Gilded Arrow BangleIvory Julep BangleGreen Foundation BraceletMorlay Flower RingsFiona EarringsFiona Bib Necklace ; Loft cateye sunglasses

  1. Meeting up with fellow bloggers is some of the most fun I derive out of blogging; unlike 'normal' friends, you can ask them to take vain photos of you without them rolling their eyes/ looking at you like you're insanely narcissistic. Which we are, but it's nice to have likeminded people around ;)
