Outfit of the Week: Girly Military


This week's inspiration came from the current trend of military or skinny cargos.
I adore how casual this outfit is and can be modified for any body type. Details:
  • Let's start with these cute cargos, only $25 at the Gap.
  • This olive green shirt from Old Navy is ruched and v-neck. Very cheap as well!
  • How cute are these shoes? There's always the old standby of flip flops!
  • Y'all know I love my accessories, and this bracelet is lovely, picking up shades of green and brown.
  • For something a little different, I thought I'd show you a cute variation on a messy bun--here's where I got inspiration.
  • Coral is *the* shade for summer, and the polish and lip gloss with spf highlight that trend.
What do you think of this trend? How would YOU wear it?


PS--Thanks to Jemina for awarding me the following award:

  1. Love the cargo trend! I have a cargo skirt I bought at Abercrombie that I can't seem to get enough of -- and I'm wearing coral nailpolish right now! So, as you can probably tell, I loved this post :)
