If I could put all my favorite pieces of the season into one outfit, it would look something like this – ripped jeans, a suede green moto jacket, and a bag with a chain strap.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I live in neutrals. And this outfit sums up my fall neutrals – greys, military greens and black. And you probably also know that I live in my military jacket. It’s my staple for spring and for fall. And cool summer evenings. And it fits easily over sweaters, so I can wear it even on mild winter days. So you see, I try to wear my military jacket all year round.
These are not wallflower pants, these are flower pants. There is no way you won’t be noticed in these paints, that’s for sure. Yet, for some reason, I don’t see these pants as bold at all. Maybe it’s the navy color. I shy away from bold statements with my clothes, hence the color palette of grey, black and white. But I’ve never shied away from wearing these pants.
My statement skirt is my life saver during transitional fall weather. I usually go for clean, simple and grey (notice the sweater and the boots), but when it comes to skirts, I love ones with flowers and interesting details.
A military jacket has been my staple outerwear for fall and spring for years now. I bought my first one in Amsterdam years ago (I remember that at the time people were already wearing them in Europe, but they were really hard to find in the US). But in a moment of “I need to purge my closet of old stuff” last summer, I donated it. I regretted it almost immediately as I started seeing stylish moms at the playground looking stylish and happy in their own military jackets. And since then I had been on a hunt to replace it.
