Vintage Camouflage

I’m currently sat On our balcony, busy writing up my stateside adventures. You will be reading all about it soon enough; what I have been up to and of course the inspiration for holiday wear during my sunshine break. I’ve been very happy with my wardrobe choices, they worked well for me on my two week sightseeing and relaxing combo, here in Florida.

My trip is drawing to an end, it’s sadly our last full day here in Florida. I checked in on my blog to add some snaps and came across this look that is waiting to be shared. I think of this as a cute outfit, good for wearing on a dull day. I thought I would share this look with you now, as I will be travelling for the next two days, then getting myself straight and shaking off the dreaded jet lag for a couple of days – do you have any suggestion for dealing with jet lag?

In the meantime, here’s a little post for you.

The jacket was a real find, it’s one of a few treasures I picked up on a trip to Paris last year. Don’t you love shopping for clothes abroad- a momento of a happy holiday? Now in truth, I already own a much loved plain khaki army jacket (vintage of course), but I have yearned for one with a camouflage print for the longest time!….you do know that camoflague is one of my favourite prints, don’t you?! I had spent just under an hour searching through the racks of clothes in vintage boutiques, so I was delighted to find the perfect camo jacket! So, when I laid my eyes on this little number – and at the right price, well, I knew it was coming home with me and I still get a rush of pleasure every time I wear it.

This sweet dungaree dress and blouse combo add just the right amount of feminine detail to work the look. It’s been a regular wardrobe ‘go to’ during the cooler months….and now, for the love of pure sass – and sassiness alone – these fake-snake cut out boots are just the business. I was gifted them by the lovely team at ASOS for the Paris trip and wore them to dinner and on evenings out, but I never managed to get the evening lighting correct to create a decent snap. I’ve worn them plenty since, but they should be named Cinderella, because until now they haven’t made it into the blog, funny that? I must make more effort to show them off on here over the summer. I think paired with a dress- either a floaty white one or a black midi would be cute.

    Oh I love that camo jacket, especially when it goes with denim. Lovely photos, too πŸ˜‰

      I feel the denim softens the camo and gives it a girlies feel too it. Thank you x
