A couple of months ago my stylists Brooke Caspi and Nicole Oretan told me that I needed to get a military jacket ASAP for this coming 2017 season. I was quite hesitant thinking this look just wasn't for me until they pretty much forced me to try it on. Well as I always say - that's what a stylist is for - never would I have thought of wearing one until they made me and I LOVE it. We decided to start with baby steps - a fairly plain military jacket that was structured for my curves instead of big and baggy. The one that I got is by Zadig & Voltaire and I have worn it so many times this Spring. I wear it as a blazer so it's a great piece to wear at work. Now that I am used to this jacket I have expanded my horizons and currently I am awaiting the arrival of an even bigger and better blingier (is that a word?) Military jacket by Josie Bruno in Toronto. Stay tuned for that blog.
I love this jacket with a great pair of skinny jeans and any kind of tee underneath. The great thing about this pretty basic outfit is how I can accessorize it and you will see from these pics that I layered on the accessories - the more the better. Here is a run down of what I am wearing:
First of all these sunglasses by Gucci are just the best with this outfit - the cat eye is a cool shape and the design makes them so much better than a basic sunnie. This is my newest Rockins scarf and I love the hot pink pop with the military jacket. Adding a Rebekah Price Broach to this jacket was Brooke's idea and I'm going to do a follow up blog on why everyone should have a broach this season. My gorgeous Barry Brinker Chanel bracelet that is made of Vintage Chanel buttons from a flea market outside of Paris is one of my favourite belongings. My Dean Davidson ring that my kids gave me for Mother's Day I wear almost every day. And finally the gorgeous fabulous Chanel bag that I die for.
See - there is no such thing as over accessorizing in my eyes!!!!
