Utilitarian Jacket

I have an urge to buy clothing that are military inspired. Once I saw this jacket, it was love at first sight. I bought it over the summer and I have been patiently waiting to wear it. Finally the day has come. The reward is always sweeter when you wait! 

I love the way this jacket elevates the simple jean and boots look by adding character. This type of jacket truly is a great investment piece. There are other ways to incorporate military inspired pieces to your look, such as wearing an olive green twill vest.

  1. I love utility/cargo jackets too - they work well like you have them here with jeans, and I think they are provide stylish contrast when paired with a feminine dress. Good call. ;)

  4. This jacket is so cute! I love how because of the patches, it stands out from the sea of plain olive green coats (I'm guilty of having a few of those!)
