Salute your shorts

Fall is coming and once this heat takes a turn elsewhere, a jacket will be in need. It's never too early to keep your eyes open for your new, desirable favorite, and I know I've had my eyes on one of these babies. The military inspiration is nothing new to the fashion scene, but this time it takes on a lot less Michael Jackson and a lot more utilitarian with its olive green tones. Tone down the frills of a girly frock, rock it with a cute LBD and patterned tights, or even keep it casual with jeans and a flowy white button down, it's just so versatile!
Stop by a nearby military surplus store or the Gap has a great Corduroy-trimmed utility jacket, or a slick, belted take from BB Dakota. I know for a fact Zara will have some on hand as well. And don't forget the killer booties to pair it with!
Don't get me wrong though, as much as I love the look, this won't be getting me any closer to camo print anything. I refuse to go there.
