139 - LAMB X FLAG

Jacket & Sweater Dress - c/o Lamb & Flag, Boots - Lucky, Earrings - Random, Spike Pendulum Ring - Unearthen, Filigree Ring - Konstantino, Vintage Ring - Flea Market

It wasn't very long ago that I was on the search for the perfect army jacket. Now, I have three. It's madness, I tell you, especially because all of them are really quite perfect. This one is from Lamb & Flag, with whom I am doing a partnership today for Lookbook. Their military jacket zips off into a cropped jacket, too, which I imagine will look really great with cut-offs, black tights, and a ripped-up vintage tee.

I put on this outfit and thought that perhaps it was just a touch too safe, so I added this bizarrely dark lipstick. I only feel comfortable if I look a touch brooding, I suppose. It keeps the wrong kind of men away, at least, and for that I am grateful.

Here are some inspo photos on army jackets. JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH.

(as always, click on photo for source -- I do not know the source for the last image as it was gleened from Tumblr; if you know, please tell me!)

  4. Ahh, military jackets. ♥ I love the combination here with the sweater dress! You're so good at these sorts of things. Also, those boots are freaking adorable.

    I've been thinking of buying a new military jacket, but I don't know. I own one that I bought at Graceland in Tennessee, a replica of what Elvis wore when he was stationed in Germany. I just can't figure out what to wear it with, mainly because it's a touch too big on me. I'm tempted to DIY it.

  5. Gorgeous! I've always found army jackets to be a sort of hit-and-miss thing; sometimes they look great, and sometimes they look cliche. But you look amazing in yours and your outfit is to die for!
    I too never feel quite comfortable without my touch of dark lipstick :)

  6. I still haven't found the perfect military style jacket, but I'm quite sure that once I do I'll be wearing it as much as possible, especially since I live in Portland where it's been super cold (in the 40's) for weeks now! ugh...the search continues!

  16. That Last jacket. Oh my god. Come to me. I love yours and it's so cool that it zips off. I feel like we have similar theories about scaring men away except I think mine works for everyone...
    Anyways, you rule and your posts never fail to keep me inspired!

  24. i'm dying over that coat. after scouring unsuccessfully for some time, I found one at Target that will suffice and has been permanently glued to my body as of late. that dress looks great on you; i couldn't remember why it looked so familiar, but then duh, it was hanging in my sister's closet.
