WiW: Militaryesque aka. Inspired by Rae!

Surprise arrived in the mail yesterday and I had almost given up hope this blazer would ever arrive! It has the cutest black and forest green plaid lining!!!

But the tall skinny lines reminded me of our dear Rae! :)

I am slightly unused to this style, but hopefully will be inspiration for many more cool outfits in the future!!!!

    Cute blazer! I see it working over some of your dresses too.

    Very very pleased to be associated with this outfit! Love the blazer, colors, and how you changed it up with a pencil skirt (even though I still love your flared skirts, too).

    Fab blazer!!  So glad it arrived (if a bit late)!

    @ Ceit - Thanks! It is quite cropped so I hope it will work with my dresses too! :) 

    @ Rae - I love my flared skirts too, but today felt like a pencil skirt day - and it's so nice to be able to choose!

    @ Thistle - Better late than never, yes?

    This is the beauty of YLF -- when women with different style sensibilities can still find inspiration in one another. And what a fab homage to Rae! It works beautifully on you! I love the top, too, and really like the contrasting mood between that pastoral print and the military vibe of the jacket.

    Looks great! Nice contrast with your more feminine dresses.
