This was by far the hardest Bloggers Do It Better challenge for me yet. I went into my closet and said, “Where the h*ll is all of my army green?” I could have sworn I had a ton, but I was mistaken. What I would have LOVED to wear was my J.Crew white/blue stripe henley with an army green vest over it. I adore the look of navy/white stripes with army green. Slight problem: I don’t own said vest. *adding to my shopping list as we speak* And the even bigger problem: the J.Crew vest that I linked to doesn’t have the size/color combo I need.
So I had to improvise. My thoughts:: Army green top has sequins on it, but whatever. Military chic, right?! Chambray is military-esque, right?! (I still don’t know the answer to this question, but I can pretend.) Blazer has military-like gold brassy buttons.
I’m still in shock that I don’t have more military green. I mean, green is my favorite color to wear. It’s bizarre! Good news is that I used this experience to justify my purchase of Kristina’s first LINEBY item:: Glitterati by Pretty Shiny Sparkly “Sergeant Sparkle Blouse“. Don’t even get me started on how absolutely AWESOME it is that she now has her own line! So amazingly cool!
Sequin Top: J.Crew (similar long sleeve) (similar short sleeve)

PS — Any vest recommendations for me?! 🙂
