If there’s one trend I never thought I’d dabble in, it was Camo.
Camo was for boys, and GI Joe
Dolls Action Figures and Spice Girls.
Buuuttt, I changed my tune a year ago and I’m glad I did because I could wear my Camo Jacket Evry. Day. If you let me. It acts as a neutral
#shocker and goes with so much more than you would think.
I got my Camo jacket last year at Express for $25 after some very strategic couponing. But here and here are a couple of other options currently in stores, should you be in the market for little camo in your life.
We put ourselves in boxes so many times with our style. We shy away from even trying things on out of fear and intimidation.
But you know how you get over “fearing” wearing a certain style?
You wear it.
You rock it with confidence, even if that confidence is faked at first. 😉
The world will indeed keep spinning while you wore something you previously might not have.
Don’t let the perceptions of others ever keep you in a fearful fashion box.
Within boundaries of honor and modesty, celebrate your precious No Small Life through your style. You are SO MUCH MORE than your outer appearance, BUT it is your billboard to the world.
So go ahead and break your own fashion rules a little. You just might be glad you did.
So by now I’m sure you’re thinking, “Maybe I COULD wear camo, but what do I wear it with?” I’m so glad you asked. Here are 3 ways you can style your future camo jacket and NOT look like a GI Joe
Doll Action Figure.
First Up, we’re going über girly. We’re going Sequins.
A little neutral sparkle is just what the camo in your life could be craving. This loose fitting tank is from Express. Necklace is The Limited and the Stella & Dot Bracelet was gifted to me from my Bestie.
Gold Cap toe flats have a few seasons of wear and are from Forever 21. Cropped Jeans are from Express.
Watch is Jolie and Ring is courtesy of a-l-m-o-s-t 14 years of marriage. Bam, and yep you guessed it. Got married when I was 11 😉
Midi Ring Stack Express also in this post and Sally Hansen Mojito on the nails also featured in this post.
Next up, a little print mixing shall we? Let’s go stripes.
These two patterns work well together here because they’re in the same color family.
Tassel Necklace is from the Limited a few seasons back. Long Sleeve Tee is from, you guessed it, Express. Hey man, there’s one 5 min from my house lol. And because I really can’t take myself too seriously…
the classic nonchalant “I freeze all the time in mid-air pose.”
And if you look very closely, you will see my watch falling off right around the knee region.
Last up in the Camo festivities is mixing it with a brighter color. Today we’re going bright pink, but I’ve also been known to go neon yellow. Gettin’ Crazy.
This “Classic” V-neck T is from Gap. I love the fit and they wash up great.
Thanks so much for stopping by to celebrate style and maybe, just maybe, try something different.
What’s on your Spring Fashion Wish Year? Any Camo? 😉
Until Next Time,
