in the army now

You know, just your typical morning when you wake up at 6 a.m. to fit in outfit pictures for the day and decide to head to the alley behind your boyfriend's house, while people honk at you to get out of their way. I mean, no biggie, right?

But besides being completely exhausted in these photos, I must say this jacket is quickly becoming a new BINGE favorite of mine. Yes, everyone and their half-brother has been raving about the Balmain craze when it hit us a few months back (myself included) but it wasn't until recently that I stumbled upon this find at Charlotte-Rusee of all places. My insticts said, nah, pass on it. But my better instincts (they tend to yell over the other ones) asked me why the hell not?

So I did it.

Will this fad soon pass? Probably. But for now, I'm content.

Jacket: Military jacket, Charlotte-Russe
Shirt: White, sheer tank top
Jeans: Boyfriend cut jeans, Abercrombie & Fitch
Shoes: Black heels, Aldo


  1. I LOVE the structured jacket with the chill jeans. Good call! Also, I admire your dedication to getting up early to do photos...I have some good spots I could utilize other than the ill-lit confines of my apartment, but I seem to always be running late!

  2. I love that military jacket. Pairing it with distressed and heels creates a nice mix of formal and casual.
