G.I. Jane (See Jane Salute)

True to form, I paired a simple, white dress, found deep in my closet, with an army green jacket that I forgot I even owned.  There’s something alluring about the juxtaposition of a prim and proper white dress topped with a stiff, canvas military jacket.  So different, yet so complementary–sort of like macaroni & cheese with hot dogs (did I just lose you and/or make you ill?).  Add some suede, black sandals and you’ve got yourself a whole gamut of textures.

My post sounded so sophisticated before I brought up hot dogs.

  1. I love this, really great combination of styles and textures. I tend to play with colors more than any other elements, so this is inspiring for me to get out of my comfort zone.

    Thoes shoes are absolutely fabulous!

    And…since I'm a vegetarian, I can't really appreciate the mac & cheese with hot dogs. Peanut butter and banana, maybe? πŸ™‚

  2. Hahaha, I forgive you your hot dog mention because I <3 them. You look so pretty and finding ways to toughen up girly pieces is a favorite habit of mine as well.

  3. I love this outfit so much! Such a clashing of elements like you said.

    Actually hot dogs + mac and cheese sounds like an intriguing combo. I'll have to try it the next time I encounter both. πŸ™‚

  4. I'm loving this brick wall that you've been using as a backdrop lately! And the photos are so fantastic with the new camera. I can't wait to get mine. The jacket you're wearing here is really lovely, I'm in need of some light transitional jackets. It's one of those items that you always forget about until the morning when you need it!
