Military Vest & Stripes

Happy Friday loves! I got the opportunity to meet some fellow bloggers who I’ve felt like I’ve known forever last night at the ATX Blogger Mixer. With everything that I have going on it’s hard to find time for these types of events, so I was very happy I was able to attend. There’s nothing better than being in a room with a group of women who are all striving for the same goals, and who are really supportive of one another.

When I got these photos back from my photographer I was so excited. If I could pick one outfit that I’ve posted thus far to my blog that I love the most it would be this one. For the longest time I’ve been obsessed with military vests, and the army green color in general.

I love that you can mix army green with brown, black or both. I also love pairing it with stripes. This outfit really feels like me, and I could literally wear it or some rendition of it everyday. This military vest is actually from the Olivia Palermo & Chelsea 28 exclusive collaboration available at Nordstrom. There are so many beautiful pieces from her collection, and this one is worth the price, trust me. It’s one of those pieces that you can wear for years!

And… about this striped dress… chances are that you’ve already seen it on my Instagram, but it’s amazing and only $34! There are a lot of reviews online saying that it’s too short. It does run on the shorter side, but it works fine for me and I’m a tall girl ( 5 foot 8). If you’re taller or think it’s too short, you can always wear smooth shorts underneath it and pair it with flats instead of heels.

Okay ladies… time to sign off of the bloggity blog for the day. Have a great Friday!

    I am loving the olive vest. I’ve been seeing olive a lot lately. Sounds like the mixer was fun. I’m in San Antonio and really need to see if there is a mixer for SA bloggers.

    Really cute! I don’t think the dress is too short at all! I love the military vest trend. I need to get one. I love how yours is a little more tailored and put together.

    Lee Anne–hey girl! i’m so glad we connected via the ATXBloggerMixer! Oliva’s Nordstrom collection was beautiful. what is so funny is that i wore a very similar outfit this weekend!! a military green vest (short; i bought mine from Target, gotta love Target right?!) with a striped 3/4 sleeve shirt!!!! (and hunters of course due to the ugly weather). thanks for sharing this one and so glad we have similar taste! can’t wait to follow along. xoxo,
